Top Critic Average
An artful puzzle platformer that'll stay with you long after its short running time.
Gris's beautiful exterior hides a simple, at times confusing, platformer.
Gris's visual appeal hinders as much as it helps its exploration of grief.
A stunning visual achievement and a mediocre Metroidvania but despite that unevenness this is still an affecting interactive journey with real emotional resonance.
Offers a well-crafted invitation for exploration on multiple levels, though Gris is neither a walk in the park nor a brain-wringing title
Gris will only take you a handful of hours to play from start to finish, but I can’t recommend it strongly enough. I only wish the experience lasted longer.
Gris is a beautiful and tranquil platformer that relishes in the simple pleasure of exploring its enchanting 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 marvelling at its art and sound for a few minutes, before moving on to something else. There's moments of beautiful brilliance in Gris, all of which is dragged down by a decidedly average platforming game.
With GRIS, Nomada has created an abstract adventure, as beguiling as it is haunting. By focusing on its courageous protagonist, and creating a bewitching but frightening world for her to overcome, GRIS succeeds with its short but unforgettable odyssey. Awash with meticulous detail, charming aesthetics, and smart design, GRIS is something special. Take the trip.
