    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]

    Es un juego precioso en todos los aspectos, una hermosa pintura de acuarela en movimiento, a diferencia de muchos juegos del estilo que puedenEs un juego precioso en todos los aspectos, una hermosa pintura de acuarela en movimiento, a diferencia de muchos juegos del estilo que pueden carecer de mensaje y trasfondo, Gris pone sus cartas sobre la mesa siendo una orquesta perfecta entre apartado artístico, musical y jugable, es simple pero a la vez elegante y precioso.
    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

    Gris is exceptionally beautiful, with a unique and gorgeous style, and it's a fun puzzle-platformer to boot.

    Fantastic game! The visuals are astounding. The music is subtle, but perfect for the game. The platforming is good and the puzzles areFantastic game! The visuals are astounding. The music is subtle, but perfect for the game. The platforming is good and the puzzles are relatively easy. What you get this game for is the artwork and the unspoken but meaningful story. The only reason it is not a 10 is because the game is short. But length aside, this is a must have game it you appreciate art style in a game. Expand

    One of the best games I have ever played visually speaking. Highly recommended to play it on a big screen. It is like a playable work or art.

    This shouldn't even be considered a game. Don't be a fool and waste your money, as I did. Practically no real gameplay outside of platformingThis shouldn't even be considered a game. Don't be a fool and waste your money, as I did. Practically no real gameplay outside of platforming with not even an ounce of challenge. You simply walk through this "art piece" of a game. It is complete garbage. It makes Nintendo's ET look like a masterpiece. Sure, rate the art and visuals of the game a 9/10, but any other aspect of this game is an easy 0/10. Nobody but a select minority want this type of garbage. Expand
