    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]

    Это апогей визуального дизайна. Настолько всё шедеврально красиво и гармонично, что просто выпадает челюсть.

    Это апогей визуального дизайна. Настолько всё шедеврально красиво и гармонично, что просто выпадает челюсть.
    Conrad Roset - главный художник и креативный дизайнер игры, впервые за мой довольно большой игровой опыт смог меня настолько удивить и обескуражить.

    P.S Также отдельное спасибо Nomada Studio и всей её команде.

Yes it lacks some challenge but the "contemplative" side of the game is assumed until the end and difficulty is definitely not the point here. The cohesion between gameplay, level design, artistic direction and above all, this amazing soundtrack is pushed to a level I've never experienced before. Great work. Expand

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

    This is perfect. One of the best game I've ever played. Really touching. Aesthetics are like a best wine.

    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
