Gravity Rush

 

Gravity Rush is a curious game. Undoubtedly, it's a pretty gorgeous thing to behold on the Vita's lush OLED screen, and on a technical level, it manages to uphold the grand scale of the world's scenic open-ended environments . The gravity-shifting...

While it isn’t an outright bad experience, Gravity Rush feels like a disappointing misfire. It’s packed with some genuinely great ideas, and the open-ended world Kat glides and weaves through is quite spectacular in its scope and style, especially for...

Gravity Rush

 

Gravity Rush is a very enjoyable game despite a few lengthy load times, a terrible name and an unimaginative character introduction

Incredible freedom of movement ; Great art style

Controls take a lot of getting used to ; Loading times are longer than we'd like

Despite a few lengthy load times, a terrible name and an unimaginative character introduction, Gravity Rush quickly became a very enjoyable game indeed. It doesn't feel like a typical handheld title, either: Gravity Rush has the depth, length and...

Gravity Rush (PS Vita)

 

Most third-person action games, even those focused on platforming and exploration, tend to take place on one gravitational plane. You can climb and fall, but you're always oriented in the same direction. Sony Computer Entertainment of America's Gravity...

Unique gravity-shifting gameplay. Striking graphic design

Story feels rushed and incomplete. Missions are repetitive. Bland, dark color palette

Gravity Rush is a unique, entertaining PlayStation Vita game with a fun twist on third-person action gameplay, but it doesn't quite come together.

Gravity Rush: Turned inside, outside and upside-down

 

It doesn't take a genius to see that Sony's new PlayStation Vita is going through a rough patch as of now. Low sales and waning interest in the handheld make it a tough sell for the time being. Sony intends to ease this software dry spell with its own...

Excellent visual presentation and soundtrack

Haphazard story implementation, boring combat, unrealized characters

Gravity Rush Review

 

Harness the power of gravity.

Gravity Rush is certainly one of the best games available for Vita, even if it is bogged down by some frustrating combat moments. I was able to push through these parts for the sake of the story, which, while it ends rather ambiguously, is intriguing,...

Gravity Rush Review

 

Harnessing the power of gravity is exhilarating, but dull combat keeps Gravity Rush from being the soaring success it could have been.

Manipulating gravity is a joy ; Unusual and beautiful setting ; Lovely comic-book cutscenes

Spends too much time being bogged down in tedious combat

The thrilling joys and intriguing mysteries of Gravity Rush's early hours may propel you through to its conclusion, but looking back on the adventure as a whole, it's a sense of unrealized potential that dominates. The optional checkpoint time trials...

Gravity Rush Review

 

Gravity Rush is a stand out title for the Vita. It usitlises all of the handheld’s features, presenting a unified experience that draws you into both the game world and that of the Vita’s abilities...

Gorgeous art style; Excellent musical score; Feels like a console game ; Gravity shifting mechanic is smooth and fun; Utilises all aspects of the Vita console

Combat gets hectic and slightly awkward at times; Often pulled back to missions if you shift too far from the action; Where is the PS3 version

Gravity Rush

 

Finally, a creative and worthy title for the Vita. Just be sure to bring a sick bag and some nausea pills!

It’s been a while since the Vita launch now and, up until Gravity Rush, I was beginning to worry about the future of Sony’s once coveted handheld console. But this game breathes new life into the already (surprisingly) stale software line-up. While it...

Gravity Rush Review: A Topsy-Turvy Adventure

 

Sony's ambitious Vita game crafts a unique adventure amidst its gravity-defying mechanics.

After a few minutes of playing Gravity Rush, you'd be hard-pressed not to fall head-over-heels-in-love with its stylish visuals and mechanics: An awfully fitting metaphor, given the game's emphasis on falling as a play mechanic. It's a topsy-turvy...

Gravity Rush Review

 

Is Gravity Rush the surefire Vita hit that we've all been waiting for?

Reviewing Gravity Rush is a battle between my heart and my head. I love Kat and totally dig most of the superhero story, but the cumbersome combat in latter missions definitely had me cursing at my handheld. Still, if you're looking for a lite JRPG or...
