Gravity Rush Review | G4

G4: "With the distinct lack of system-sellers in the PlayStation Vita's launch lineup, fans have been clamoring for something that will sway the Vita into a must-have handheld. Gravity Rush is said to be the next Golden Egg for the system but it struggles to fulfill that promise due to the somewhat clunky and nauseating combat."

NAUSEATING COMBAT? Okay I understand what they mean... but mess around with the camera sensitivity first before you say its completely shit. The combat is only PART of the experience and considering the story, it works just fine for me. Yeah there is some useless abilities, but that's because sometimes THEY AREN'T! I have used the abilities at least twice in one session. People keep writing the Vita off before they can even experience it...

Yeah, I had to lower the sensitivity... after that the controls were excellent. Really like this game.

The combat is just fine and in my opinion its one of the best aspects of the game even though its simple.

BTW im having a blast with the title and all that i am doing is a bunch of challenges which consist mainly of races and Nevi extermination. However i do find it a bit hard to toss objects at the enemys because many times what i throw is blocked by an object such as a lamp post or a building.

At this moment Gravity Rush is one of my favourite hand held games ever. The visuals are beautiful, the story is interesting and mysterious and I actually like the combat system. I am already looking forward to play it again after finshing. Just to fly over the different city skapes is so much fun in itself. Easily a 9 out of 10; perhaps even a 10 out of 10 when I have finsished.

Hmm. I believe I'm in the last chapter, and still my only complaint is that the camera sometimes goes a little crazy. The combat is perfectly fine, though, especially when you stop looking for things to complain about: leveling up your Gravity Kick improves its lock-on and power, and you can aim yourself during any midair moves by using the left analog stick. Yeah, you're still gonna miss sometimes, but that's no different for any other game.

The challenges aren't really there to bolster your score, but to give you still more crystals to use to level Kat up. Maxing her out takes A LOT of crystals, more than I have at the end of the game. The challenges are one option; searching around the world is another, and revisiting the different Rift areas is still another. None of them are particularly easy.

Complaining about not being able to see every cop during the sneaking mission? That's really stretching it. It's as much a hindrance then as at any other point in the game: hardly. I got caught twice, being reckless. That was it.

Even so, these two things should definitely not be enough to warrant knocking 1.5 points off a 5 point scale. That puts an exceptional game- which this is- at a decent game's level.
