    This is the first time I have given a game 10/10. I said I never would give a game that score but I cannot find anything bad to say about Gris. Its near-perfect. Brilliant art style, beautiful music and brilliant gameplay. It all combines into a controllable watercolour of pure joy. Just go and play it now, I wish I could experience it again for the first time.

    Gris is a serene experience all its own, filled with problems to overcome and success to achieve. Gris is a wordless game dependent on your ability to surpass what it throws at you. Pacing aside, not much gets more beautiful than witnessing Gris in full motion.

    What I expected from GRIS was a solid, beautiful, platformer that could occupy a few hours of my time. What I got from GRIS was quite close to that, but somehow more beautiful than I could have ever considered or expected. If you want to see just how artistic games can get, or if you’re like me and just need a few hours occupied by beauty and platforming, then it’s hard to go wrong with GRIS.

    Nomada Studio's picturesque adventure has made it to PlayStation 4 almost perfectly intact. The game shines at an unwavering 60 frames per second, and it looks superb on a standard console -- let alone PS4 Pro. We did notice some very occasional audio stuttering, however, which is a shame given the otherwise immaculate presentation. That aside, GRIS holds together as an attractive, if somewhat shallow, platformer that you'll want to hang on your wall.

    A beautiful puzzle platformer with a clear artistic and mechanical vision. However, its story holds you at arm’s length and makes it tricky to find its heart. [Issue@#171, p.96]

    One of the best-looking games of the generation and an indie adventure with a serious but subtle message to tell… it’s just a shame it’s still not that much fun to play.

    Every single frame of this game is a piece of art. There are also cool platforming ideas throughout.
    This was the only game that I liked even more after going the trophy-hunting route.
    Highly recommend it.

    Beautifully made, great score. Platform game, easy at times, some times the transitions are a bit long, but overall a superb game. I love theBeautifully made, great score. Platform game, easy at times, some times the transitions are a bit long, but overall a superb game. I love the fact that there are no instructions, what to do how to do it, so you have to solve the puzzle yourself. Great art, pity it is rather short. Expand

Gameplay-wise, aThe art style was what drew me to this game and it didn't disappoint as it features a stunning hand-drawn watercolour world. Gameplay-wise, a relatively short puzzle platformer that was not really challenging. Found most of the collectables on the first run and backtracked with chapter select to cleanup. The storytelling is silent and surreal. It managed to conjure up some thoughts about love and loss which I didn't expect. Overall, a short yet beautiful game and those should be supported.

    Gris is magnificent!
    The game has one the most unique and astonishing art design I’ve ever seen in gaming.Almost every shot in the game can be screenshoted and placed as a wallpaper on your device, I’ve gotta say art designers have done an amazing work.Sometimes Ive stoped moving to just watch the environment and see how it’s well-designed and how beautiful it is.
    Also the soundtrack in this game is very…very good- main theme,ending theme, every boss fight theme are memorable, and can brought to goosebumps at some point.
    As for the plot, we have very similar situation as in Journey, it is heavily brought by visual design and soundtrack, and every player experiences his own adventure, and builds the full picture of story by himself.If we are comparing this game with Journey, this game, in my opinion, has a far more deep story.
    But if we are comparing this game with by gameplay and how colorful and joyful your adventure is, I think that I like Journey more than Gris.But Gris still is a really good,visually stunning and relaxing game.

    Very nice game with great art and music. As cons I could mention abstract story-line. But in general very good game.
