    GRIS is best experienced as single-sitting five-hour adventure and after that there's nothing more to do really do with the game. The puzzles are a lot less engaging on repeat and the world is very linear. In every other aspect though GRIS is a masterpiece in visualization and atmospheric storytelling.

    GRIS is not only a perfectly designed puzzle-platformer, it's a title that whisks the player away on a journey of colorful catharsis. Surprises are waiting around every corner of this ever-evolving world, and its stride remains strong, from the onset until the very end.

    A beautifully designed platform adventure with quite a few surprises and good ideas, making this a playable artwork that will not leave you untouched.
  4. Like a playable painting of ink and pigment, GRIS is a powerful and significant game, even if the visual art often overshadows the actual play.

    An absolutely gorgeous work of art that everyone should experience at some point. [Issue #39 – May/June 2019, p. 23]

    In its 3-4 hour playtime, GRIS won’t change the way you think about platformers, but with such a beautiful hand-painted art style and haunting score, it’s an exquisite mini masterpiece that heals the soul.

    Almost universal admiration for Gris says a lot about the condition of video games industry. It’s just a 2D platformer devoid of any challenge, and instead of evoking true feeling it makes a good first impression (“wow, it’s beautiful!”) and then just glides for a couple of hours using that momentum. It doesn’t actually have anything important to say, it’s just pretty. [02/2019, p.56]

    En el aspecto mecánico no se queda atrás, y aunque Gris no sea de lo mas complejo en cuanto a plataformas se refiera, las mecánicas y poderes que se desbloquean a medida de la aventura le dan un valor y variedad a la forma en la que se juega y se avanza, la exploración se siente orgánica, siendo algunos puzzles bastante intrincados y una maravilla del diseño, la dedicación y el minimalismo, mas que como un juego, Gris se siente y se vende como una experiencia, como un grato paseo, un viaje de descubrimiento... Todos los elementos audiovisuales se complementan a la perfección para enternecer, relajar y meter al jugador dentro de su atmósfera, aspiración que el juego tiene y que cumple sin ninguna falta, pocos son los puntos malos que le puedo ver a esta obra, ya que cumple todas mis expectativas, es inmersivo, bonito, evocador, y es todo lo que esperaba de una experiencia como esta, el apartado jugable podría haber sido mas elaborado, pero la verdad que no tengo queja, un 10 absoluto y un orgullo para la industria española

Its a very emotionalThis game is literally the most beautiful piece of art I've ever experienced, I just beat it and highly recommend it. Its a very emotional and intense experience, and actually fun and relaxing too, and the music sounds like something from a Thom Yorke solo album. Kind of relaxing platformer/puzzler/walk through an art museum, pick this game up if you are a fan of beauty and wonder. Expand

The prime example of wordless story telling with intuitive game-play and puzzles. You can really tell the thought that went into level design with subtle movements in the environment that lead you across the incredibly well animated world. I feel this shouldn't need to be a great achievement but everything shown on screen has a purpose. If you are shown something that catches your eye it has a reason. Truly a great way to end of 2018.

    This is one those games that cant really be explained on a short review. If you’ve played Journey, then you know what I mean.

    The combination
    This is one those games that cant really be explained on a short review. If you’ve played Journey, then you know what I mean.

    The combination of art, music and abstract / metaphoric storytelling makes a really really superb experience. Play it with headphones, will make a difference.

    Not all perfect though, I must say that at some point the level design got a tiny tedious and confusing for me and I struggled to advance... But overall I LOVED this game. Brilliant!!!

    "Not great, not terrible"

    -Mediocre level design and puzzles -Excelent art and music. If you look for challenge or meaningful experience
    "Not great, not terrible"

    -Mediocre level design and puzzles
    -Excelent art and music.

    If you look for challenge or meaningful experience look elsewhere. It is not bad, it is just mediocre as a game and acceptable as a mean to spend some time.
