What I expected from GRIS was a solid, beautiful, platformer that could occupy a few hours of my time. What I got from GRIS was quite close to that, but somehow more beautiful than I could have ever considered or expected. If you want to see just how artistic games can get, or if you’re like me and just need a few hours occupied by beauty and platforming, then it’s hard to go wrong with GRIS.
One of the more meta questions posed by Gris is whether you think mediocre gameplay is worth putting up with for the glorious visuals and insightful storytelling. It’s not an easy question to answer and depends entirely on how you view video games and interactive storytelling. Whatever its flaws Gris has an emotional reach few other games can boast, and the beauty of its presentation is worth celebrating on any format.
Nomada Studio's picturesque adventure has made it to PlayStation 4 almost perfectly intact. The game shines at an unwavering 60 frames per second, and it looks superb on a standard console -- let alone PS4 Pro. We did notice some very occasional audio stuttering, however, which is a shame given the otherwise immaculate presentation. That aside, GRIS holds together as an attractive, if somewhat shallow, platformer that you'll want to hang on your wall.
