Of course, getting it right out of the way, the game still looks beautiful, perhaps even more so than the first game, there is more layers, that are added to the game, to help sell the world. The demo started out with Ori just standing in an open space, surrounded by lots of dead trees and sand, in fact the entire space was desolate, but that does not mean peaceful. There were a number of enemies around the world, from the purple slug things that would shoot out projectiles in multiple directions, to the nasty and fast coyote looking thing, who, if it spotted you, would leap towards you and deal some significant damage.
The demo required that I collect two tablets, to unlock the door, just like the first game, so its not going to vastly change things up, at least not at this stage, but for those what just wanted more Ori, it looks like you are getting your wish here. One thing I did notice, but not dive into, was that you could swap out a lot of abilities to the face buttons, so instead of a ranged bow attack, you might change it to a ground pound, I honestly can’t recall if this was in the first game, but it is here now.
