There aren’t enough open-world superpower games out there. Not like Gravity Rush, anyway. It’s among the reasons Gravity Rush made a splash when it first came out. It’s this type of simple concept: your only ability is to turn gravity on or off, and then fling yourself in the proper direction. Gravity Rush managed to produce this type of multifaceted use of this single mechanic; whether it was for combat, exploration, or puzzle solving. It’s so satisfying to fling yourself into the air without a care in the world.
