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

 

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: 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...

The PlayStation Vita is quite the capable unit and it had a great launch lineup in our estimation. But it needs a continuous influx of quality titles to keep consumers interested and thankfully, games like Gravity Rush could have a positive impact on...

The Ugly: “Okay, where am I now?”

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...

Gravity Rush

 

Of all the titles showcased ahead of the PlayStation Vita's launch, Gravity Rush (or Gravity Daze as it's known in Japan) turned the most heads. One of the more unique action games to be released on any system, complete with a stylish cel-shaded visual...

Gravity Rush is worth checking out, especially with the Vita being so quiet since launch, and as the system's library fills, this title will still stand out as something uniquely charming. However, one must be honest about the questionable design...

Gravity Rush

 

The relatively massive amount of hype behind Gravity Rush made me do something I don't often do - avoid the demo at all costs. So much had been written about the gravity-altering gameplay that I didn't want the demo to cloud my judgment of the full...

Gravity Rush's soundtrack runs the gamut from peaceful classical-style fare to exciting jazz with a bit rock thrown in for good measure. It's really enjoyable to listen to in the game and some of it is stuff I'd definitely like to hear outside of it...

Change your perspective with Sony's latest PS Vita title. Is it worth the price of admission?

Awesome visual style ; Fun mechanics ; Interesting story

Combat can be clunky ; Movement can be disorienting at times

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...
