    Fantastic game, Great story!

    When I had just purchased my Vita (about 2 weeks ago at this date) There were no real games in my local Best Buy, so I went home and looked at some demos (downloaded most of them actually) and I must say, Gravity Rush really did get my attention. First item of note: The demo had nothing to do with the actual story of the game, it's like a level the developers created to give you a taste of everything, and leave you jonesing for more. I seriously felt like a crackhead after finishing it. Second: The graphics, I am a huge fan of the Cell shaded games, they look so much warmer to my eye, and the cutscenes are animated as comic books, it looks cute/cartoony, but will still demand attention. And then there was the soundtrack, very attention getting, although her noises and their language can get slightly irritating (not trying to sound like a bigot, but it sounds like a mix of Russian & Japanese) Third: The story, it keeps your attention and makes you need to finish the next chapter. Also another thing of note is that the story itself is also very long, even without completing the side missions/events, there will be many many hours of fun, which makes the higher price tag worth it. Along with DLC available that can extend the game even further! (2 missions/2events/2costumes each) Now the not so great parts (Personal gripes) 1:While the story is great, I was hugely disappointed by the ending, although I will be waiting for a part 2, it just felt like a giant middle finger in abruptitude! xD 2:load times if you were to die, are terribly long, seeing that spinning logo can be annoying after a while. and 3, which is my biggest gripe which I'm pretty sure other people will notice, the @#$% camera can get very, very irritating, it will make searching for a Nevi mildly stressful at times. If you were to be upside-down for example, it would be ever so slightly off angle so when you use the joystick it'll pull a 180° and you'll be facing a useless direction. Honestly, This is a must have for the Vita, while I'm not sure how happy I would be to pay $40, chances are very high that I would purchase again at full price. Does make things a lot better that I managed to snag it while the "buy 2 for $30+ get one free" promotion was going on (so technically $24/ea) Hope this helped.

    Engaging game with a lot of replay value

    This is a great action/adventure game to showcase the PS Vita's potential. It's an open-ended game world that provides plenty of replay value due to the large environments and plentiful side-quests, and the well-balanced skill progression system. The graphic style is cell-shaded, but uses dark tones to portray more realistic environments. Shadows are utilized effectively as well. The physics engine is buttery smooth, and I haven't noticed any lag during game play. The plot line might seem a little dull at first, but it begins to pick up after the first few missions which get you familiarized with the controls. Extended conversations with NPCs are portrayed like a comic book, which makes a good use of the Vita's touch screen. The controls are mapped very well so that the game can be played comfortably for extended periods. Touch-screen controls are responsive and intuitive, whereas in other games it sometimes becomes an inconvenience. This game has a ton of depth and great environments to explorer. It's my most frequently played Vita game to date.

    Absolutely amazing gorgeous game from SCE Japan! This game has graphics, gameplay, story, amazing game for the portable PS VIta. This game and Uncharted are the two best full console games for portable go. This game was actually developed for PS3, and then moved to Vita. Huge world to play, lots of missions, gorgeous level design and characters.......this game was one of the first I Truly enjoyed on the VIta during vacation, it was awesome!! The gravity gameplay is super great! You will love this game!

    Gravity Rush, on paper, sounds like a great, unique game, but when it comes to gameplay, the title falters. The game follows a girl name Kat, whom doesn't remember a thing before being visited by a black cat that grants her the ability to manipulate gravity. From there the game goes almost no where. The camera angle and motion controls make this game a chore. I wish I could say that I enjoyed the game, but most of the charm evaporated almost as soon as I started my game file.

    This game is simply amazing. One of the most original games I have played in recent years. The graphics are unique and pretty. The controls are smooth and easy. Gravity is the main focus of the game, which I truly enjoy. If you're a fan of RPG, than this one won't disappoint. One of the few games that I would actually play over and over again. Gravity Rush has easily become my favorite game for the VIta.

    I downloaded the demo for this last night, and I am absolutely blown away. I got my vita on release day, and since then I really haven't played it that much due to unoriginal games. This game just made my vita purchase absolutely worth it. Simply put, BUY this game!!!

    Best open world Vita game

    This game has a great art style and interesting mechanics as the player has the ability to change gravity. The music is great and the comic book style cut scenes are a nice touch. The combat is a little repetitive and simplistic. The touch controls are ok. Given the Vita library, Vita owners should really check this game out.

    Gravity Rush is a game in which you play as Kat a young girl with the power to shift gravity. As you start out Kat falls from the sky with no memory at all. As you go along you use the gravity shifting to move through the world and solve puzzles and slowly regain some memory. Great game with a great story fun for everyone.

    Started playing this only two weeks ago. Currently on Chapter 7, so I still have a long way to go. The game oozes style in the graphics and gameplay departments. Not currently compatible for PS TV, so hopefully this will get rectified shortly, but I would recommend it to any Vita owner.

    If you own a Vita then you are probably always on the lookout for a good Vita game so that is what you get here. Free for PS Plus users, Gravity Rush has been out awhile now, so be on the lookout for deals. I was able to get this new for $9.99.

    The game was really fun. The story was nothing special but the game itself is a great time killer for traveling. Very unique gameplay the whole manipulation of gravity throughout the game has a fun factor which never grew stale.

    This is one of the few exclusives for the Vita, and it is also one of the best Vita games overall. Great, unique gameplay. A bargain for under $20.

    The storyline is creative and I like the "comic book-like" transitions. The controls are somewhat repetitive, at times, but it's worth a decent review.
