Ori and the Blind Forest is a massive undertaking on a scale that I had not anticipated. Where I expected a simple platformer instead lies a Metroidvania adventure sprawling across a map that doesn't fully fit on the screen. From the Forlorn Ruins to the Ginso Tree and everything in between, this is a massive and beautiful world inhabited with wonder and danger.

Where Mario is the straight-and-narrow platformer approach, sticking to a winning formula, Kirby is the experimental "throw things up against the wall and see what comes out" entry in Nintendo's catalog. They're Nintendo's own odd couple, and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse continues the pink puffball's reputation for being different in many ways.
