    Gris is a wonderful, gorgeous puzzle-platformer with a unique art-style, a phenomenal score and a powerful yet subtle message. I was engaged from start to finish, unable to set it down (though I hadn't planned to play through an entire game in one sitting.) The ending is surprisingly poignant for a game with no dialogue and no text. The journey to that ending is endlessly creative and fun.

    Such is the quality of Gris’s visual art that replaying it struck me as a mandatory indulgence. I think the entirety of its composition demands to be seen.

    Gris is a beautiful experience that will be well-regarded for it's visuals, themes, and game design for years to come.

    An interesting allegorical journey to overcome our inner traumas that is quite open to interpretation in a way that it will be possible to be meaningful in different ways to each player, according to their own experiences. Even if it doesn’t manage to draw you with its symbolic tale, Gris may still convince you for a short, albeit, beautifully designed world.

    A week or so removed from playing Gris, I don’t know what I’ll remember it for, if at all. Gris feels like it almost belongs in a museum, with crowds marveling at its art and sound for a few minutes, before moving on to something else. There are moments of beautiful brilliance in Gris, all of which are dragged down by a decidedly average platforming game.

    Besides a rather simple gameplay and pretty short game time, this is without a doubt the most beautiful game I’ve ever seen. The music, theBesides a rather simple gameplay and pretty short game time, this is without a doubt the most beautiful game I’ve ever seen. The music, the art style and the aesthetics as a whole, mix in a unique way. Everything works as intended, not much as a “fun game”, but as an incredible and gorgeous experience, telling a story without saying anything, and evoking emotion in a passionately, yet not throwing subtlety and detail away.

    If you enjoy games as both a way to have fun and as an art, you’re are gonna absolutely love GRIS. Ps: I would recommend buying it on a sale, but only because of the overall playtime.

    Music is stunning in this game. Sets you off in a dreamy calm world. The puzzles are devilish at times but over all a beautiful game.

Para loRIS es en su mayor parte un viaje audiovisual realmente maravilloso. Nos cuenta una historia en torno a la depresión y sus facetas. Para lo que vale el juego y lo que dura tengo que recomendarlo enormemente. No es muy complejo, es difícil quedarse atascado en alguna zona. Si ademas os gusta haceros el 100% de los juegos o conseguir todos los logros no os preocupéis, que eso no os tomará mucho tiempo de más.

    Parte negativa: para los que están acostumbrados al género el juego se queda demasiado corto, y alguna habilidad más no estaría mal. No es tampoco el más innovador del sector, pero se le perdona por su parte tan positiva.

Animation structure is great. I felt like I was traveling. Soundtrack was better than I could have imagined. BUT The game is a little short (feelsbadman) and GRIS is very easy really easy. AS A RESULT, Gris is not a game for everyone. Stay away from this game if you just love action games, FPS games. If you want to try new things, new adventures, play this beauty. Expand

I'm not sure where the enjoyment comes from - you walk around collect flying things then progress. Def not puzzles, or a platformer. Respect to the devs but yeah - pass Expand
