Contrast ends as ambiguously - and ambitiously - as it begins, but without the tugging of emotions that its digital contemporaries have managed. You're left instead asking "was that it?" And as the credits roll back to the main menu, and only a few Trophies to complete the set left, you realise it is. If you're willing to accede to the twitchy controls and prefer a mystery to a clear answer, then Contrast is worth experiencing; even if the prestige of its central conceit isn't as clever as you'd wish it to be.

When it works, Contrast is a beautifully executed vaudevillian tale of sadness and intrigue, but when it doesn’t, the frustrating glitches and awkward controls will drive you mad. Contrast is interesting, and something different, unique and new, and for that, I think it’s worth investigating for yourself, especially if you can see past the bad and get to the good.

Contrast es un contraste constante en todos sus matices, con detalles geniales a nivel visual y jugable, afeados por otros elementos. Tenemos un control que en tercera persona se revela tosco y con problemas en el motor de colisión de texturas de esos que dos-tres sesiones más de testeo hubieran resuelto, que lastran a veces el avance, pero nunca sin llegar a perjudicarlo, ya que enseguida el estudio nos tira algunos de esos momentos de plataformeo 2D sencillamente para quitarse el sombrero ante la fusión de narrativa, puzles y saltos que contemplamos y manejamos. Es corto, y peor aún.
