This gravity manipulation grants a unique way to explore the open world of Hekseville, complete missions for townsfolk and defeat the creepy Nevi enemy. You can run around, jump and all the usual stuff. But as well as this you can tilt the controller, aim at any surface and then "fall" in that direction. It's a novel way to get around, but also creates a disjointed, fractured feeling that matches Kat's amnesiac struggles.
The game world opens up as you progress. What starts as a superhero tale soon strays into more interesting and substantial territory. The world around you is an increasingly militaristic police state. Your powers fight to overwhelm you. Your community is unappreciative of your help and steadily ostracises you.
Gravity Rush is a game that invites you to the joy of flying. Or rather, the rush of falling. Each time you jump, switch gravity, and land on a new axis is as thrilling as the first. Anyone looking for an overlooked adventure with a twist, it's a hidden gem.
Gravity Rush 2 extends this experience on PlayStation 4 to use the space and exploration with a more political story. You explore different locations separated not only by height but by social class. Because this game is designed for PlayStation 4 (rather than ported from the PlayStation Vita) it can do more with the movement and visuals. But it is the narrative and social commentary that makes this really stand out.
For those wanting more of this after completing the first game, Gravity Rush 2 (Gravity Daze 2 in Japan). This expands the gravity-controlling mechanics and expands the universe with a new city and more lively and colourful inhabitants.
