Gravity Rush Review (Eurogamer)

Eurogamer - The only thing that's changed is the translation, but Gravity Daze felt ever so slightly different on my second play-through. For starters, the game's called Gravity Rush now that it's reached the UK (or is about to - it's released on 13th June). On top of that, I mostly knew what was going on this time around.
That's because for my initial review, I played the Japanese version, and I can't speak/read/in-any-way-understa nd Japanese. I could follow the visual mission prompts and fumble my way through the levelling screens, but the plot was largely the stuff of mystery, the characters were little more than passing faces, and the dialogue was just pleasant sound playing in my ears.
I now know that the story's about a girl named Kat and a cat named Dusty, and I know that Dusty's some sort of magical cat, and Kat's some sort of magical girl, blessed with the ability to alter gravity at her will, blasting herself from sidewalk to rooftop to the grim slope of a church steeple as she explores the gorgeously warped city of Hekseville and gives monsters a good shoeing. (Gravity Daze, Gravity Rush, PS Vita) 9/10

I've had a Vita since Day 1 here in Japan, played almost every Vita game, and this is hands-down my favorite of the bunch.

Edit: This sums it up pretty well:

By all means, click "Disagree" all you like, but this game is unique.

Since you say you've played almost every vita game, what can you tell me about ragnarok odyssey? I've been hearing some amazing things about it and the gameplay seems awesome.

Ragnarok Odyssey is a ton of fun if you want a big multiplayer game (specifically an RPG/adventure).

It's a little bit of a Phantasy Star Online + Monster Hunter milkshake. If you liked one or both of those, definitely pick it up, and for bonus fun, convince at least one friend to do the same.

Here in Japan at least, it didn't have online play right out of the box -- only local multiplayer. Full online came in a later patch, so hopefully NA gets the patched version. I assume that's what will happen when XSeed published it stateside.

Personally I like it more with local, but that's true of me with practically every game though ^_^

I'd definitely recommend picking that up.
