    Gris is a wonderful, gorgeous puzzle-platformer with a unique art-style, a phenomenal score and a powerful yet subtle message. I was engaged from start to finish, unable to set it down (though I hadn't planned to play through an entire game in one sitting.) The ending is surprisingly poignant for a game with no dialogue and no text. The journey to that ending is endlessly creative and fun.

    Such is the quality of Gris’s visual art that replaying it struck me as a mandatory indulgence. I think the entirety of its composition demands to be seen.

    Gris is a beautiful experience that will be well-regarded for it's visuals, themes, and game design for years to come.

    An interesting allegorical journey to overcome our inner traumas that is quite open to interpretation in a way that it will be possible to be meaningful in different ways to each player, according to their own experiences. Even if it doesn’t manage to draw you with its symbolic tale, Gris may still convince you for a short, albeit, beautifully designed world.

    A week or so removed from playing Gris, I don’t know what I’ll remember it for, if at all. Gris feels like it almost belongs in a museum, with crowds marveling at its art and sound for a few minutes, before moving on to something else. There are moments of beautiful brilliance in Gris, all of which are dragged down by a decidedly average platforming game.

GRIS possuiu uma historia, na qual se baseia na sua própria interpretação dos acontecimentos, e mesmo sem ter 1 dialogo, deixa qualquer pessoa emocionada. Esse jogo vale cada centavo, e para mim, é o melhor jogo do ano Expand

    Music is stunning in this game. Sets you off in a dreamy calm world. The puzzles are devilish at times but over all a beautiful game.

It is very refreshing to play a game of this kind from time to time. I'd like more of such games coming out. GRIS is a bit of an exception because it got popular quickly and you didn't really need to look for it, but usually you really have to look hard for such games, they are like hidden gems. Expand

    Чем-то напомнила супер марио, только без монстров, монеток и труб... Что это вообще?
    Что вообще мешает людям прикручивать так называемый "визуальный дизайн" к обычным играм, зачем полностью кастрировать игровой процесс, что бы показать "дизайн"?

    У меня художественное образование, я архитектор и хоть убей не пойму, что так нравиться простым рабочим людям в этой поделке. На мой взгляд IWD 2 гораздо гармоничней и на голову лучше, в плане визуального оформления, только там, помимо него, еще и шедевральная игра есть. Здесь нет не того, не другого. Лишний раз убеждаюсь, как легко людям впарить какую-нибудь х...ю и выдать за высокое искусство. :(
