Review of Ori and the Will of the Wisps (part3)
3- Role-playing elements
Metroidvania and role-playing games relate to each other throughout the history of video games. Metroidonia’s style owes much to role-playing games and most Metroidonia games have role-playing elements. Many role-playing and action-oriented role-playing games are also inspired by Metroidonia games and incorporate elements of adventure. Ori is not a role-playing game. Still, the game’s creators have cleverly incorporated elements of this genre. In the game, you can boost your energy-based attacks by playing characters that play a significant role in combat. You can also have different skills in Ori and the Will of the Wisps by earning Shard. The system of using these skills is such that you can activate a limited number of them simultaneously. Still, the game allows you to increase the number of them and upgrade each Shard, and of course, play the game the way you want and Have more variety in gameplay. Using these role-playing elements, which in Ori and the Blind Forest were limited to just one three-pronged skill tree, make you feel empowered as you progress through the game and gain newer skills. Ori is a creature known as the spirit of the forest. He must have been powerful. Still, in Ori and the Blind Forest, he seemed defenseless. Ori and the Will of the Wisps, due to the addition of role-playing elements and a sense of progress in the game, Ori becomes more powerful moment by moment. As he becomes more powerful, the gamer also gains an understanding of power.
