Ori and the Blind Forest is a beautiful and ambient platformer that easily slots alongside some of the biggest triple-A titles as one of our favourites of Gamescom. The Xbox One and PC game is as inventive as it is pretty, with new skills - such as Bash, which allows the player to shift direction in mid-air - adding new gameplay features throughout. It is also a very challenging game. And that we like. We like a lot.
