I really wanted to like this game

I really wanted to like this game. I downloaded the demo for my Vita, but after I finished it, I just didn't get it. It wasn't hard, but nothing really struck me as "fun." I like the art style, and I was interested to see what the raven girl actually had to do with the plot, but there just didn't seem to be a lot of game here.

I know that other people on the forum like this game. I'm okay with spending extra money to support Vita games, but I don't want the game to just sit there if I get bored after a few levels. Is there more to the game than what's shown in the demo? What am I missing? I'm hoping one of you can convince me.

Thanks.

I haven't played the demo, but the game throws some interesting powers at you, some of the bosses are pretty fun, and the story is pretty good from what I've seen so far. It's not a game for everyone, but I'm enjoying it.

There is more to it, but it isn't necessarily the deepest game in the world.

Personally, I just enjoy floating through the world picking up gems and stuff. Also, the characters are pretty likeable, especially Kat imo.

I didn't really like the demo either but I bought the game and I'm glad I did. I wouldn't say there is any more depth to the game than what's in the demo but there is a pretty big world to explore at your own pace with great music and atmosphere.

I agree!

Gravity Rush is at it's best when you're just floating around the world collecting gems. I love Kat :) She's so cool, the DLC is pretty cool too, even if it has been ripped out of the main game.

While I am late to the party, the game just felt unfinished. The combat was boring and the game overall was not very difficult. The story somewhat came out at the end, but there was plenty left out mainly "who is Kat???". I am glad I got this for free from PS+ otherwise I would of been disappointed. If a sequel comes out, I'll likely play it as the game wasn't terrible; but it just didn't do it for me.
