When up is down and down is up, it's usually a sign that things have gone crazy and out of control. But in Gravity Rush Remastered, it's exactly how things are supposed to be, and it's literally under your control. Admittedly, there's a little bit of a learning curve in using Kat's special powers. When shifting gravity around, the camera tries to keep up but doesn't always succeed. And since the game supports the PS4's Sixaxis motion controls for aiming, any accidental tilting of the controller can add to the disorientation. After a bit of adjustment and some good old-fashioned practice, though, you'll soon be falling up and flying down with ease.
The original Gravity Rush was one of the PS Vita's "must have" titles, and for good reason. Its story was engaging, its gameplay was unique, and it was one of the most visually stunning games to ever hit the portable console. With Remastered, the game gets a pretty substantial upgrade in the visuals and sound, more than worthy of a full-size, current-generation release. There are a few rough spots, mainly in some animations and movements, where the game still shows its handheld roots. Even so, Gravity Rush Remastered, with its improvements, extra content, and PS4 controller support, is the best way to play with this physics-defying classic.
