    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.

    Gris is a beautiful puzzle-platformer about making it through the ordeals of hardship, and it’ll likely stay with you long after the credits have rolled.

    As a one-off experience or one-time playthrough, GRIS is certainly one of the most artistic and provocative experiences I’ve seen in video games. While I would’ve liked to see a more fleshed out world, with meaningful collectibles and more puzzles to solve, GRIS is still worth a look for anyone who has an interest in platformers or silent stories

    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

Artistically, aurally and mechanically superb.Artistically speaking it's the best game I've ever played and I've played hundreds of games! Artistically, aurally and mechanically superb. The level design is so well thought-out you never feel lost, frustrated or bored. Such amazing difference in kind which all fit perfectly with the theme so the game always feels fresh and exciting. I honestly think everybody who cares about games as an art-form needs to play and learn from this amazing title. I hope it does very well and we get more games like this in the future! Expand

    Mi puntación sobre Gris es de 9, me explico;
    La duración se queda muy corta en mi opinión, es la única pega que le pongo, en mi caso 3h y 42min.
    Gráficamente un espectáculo visual, se nota que hay un esfuerzo detrás muy grande. Una historia triste pero a la vez llena de esperanza. Jugablemente muy divertido y dividido en fases. Echo por desarrolladores españoles. Y la banda sonora de las mejores que he oído en el mundo de los videojuegos. Ese computo hace que le ponga un 9 sobre 10 ( comparándolo con juegos de su plataforma, NSwitch y PC ). Mi cuarta crítica u/o review.

    Whomever had the idea for this game is a beautiful soul. Maybe it’s just me, but Gris hit me hard in the feels. This is a game meant forWhomever had the idea for this game is a beautiful soul. Maybe it’s just me, but Gris hit me hard in the feels. This is a game meant for people whom have experienced extreme hardship or loss. Gris is hard to describe, but in a good way. It leaves much up to personal interpretation.

    It is a side scrolling, gentle, artistic puzzle platformer about a girl who is overcoming tragedy/trauma/loss and trying to find her lost voice in a journey toward catharsis. The platforming is not too difficult and feels very smooth and organic. The challenge is in its clever puzzles.

    Gris is metaphoric, melancholy yet uplifting, crushing at times yet warmly encouraging. It has hauntingly beautiful music. The art style is delicately detailed. I had chills frequently when playing this gem of a game.

    Gris plays your heartstrings like a violin. It reminds me of Journey or Abzu in its pace, aesthetic, and teasing mystery. This game is an emotional experience and you can feel the care and love with which it was made. The only thing that would have made it better for me is if it were a little longer.
