Stray Review – A Game About Being A Cat
Stray is, more than anything, a charming game. Its gimmick – you are a cat, do cat things – never gets old; I constantly found it clever for the few hours it took to complete. But more than gimmicks, exploring a world this dense and detailed…
Score is an 8, a full point above the normal IGN 7.
Press X to magnetically jump to stuff. Great…
how has this got an 8 😬
Gameplay looks repetitive, but the rest seems dope. Simple and effective concept
I would love stray 2 with a dog & coop!!!
Alot gamers & reviewers been praising Stray a ton and it definitely looks very interesting. Definitely gonna pick up this game for my PS5.
I watched someone play this and I fell asleep. That's not necessarily a dig at the game. I personally found it boring and the "be a cat" gimmick… Well, I'm not a cat person.
Video games fell off so bad man
Thanks for the review
Not a bad game but it is only an 8 if you have your expectations in check going in. There aren't really any gameplay elements at all unless you count the "puzzles" and very few "run from the bugs" sections. It's a walking simulator. You can't even count platforming since you essentially warp from ledge to ledge and can't fall off. Not a bad game at all, but I can understand if people were expecting something more along the lines of a platformer.
No microtransactions no NFT and no season pass? Say what?
Hopefully this lays the groundwork for a Warrior Cats video game!
Looks way too linear
No humans in this game world?
You know it's a sad time when a game can be made where you play as a cat and the reviews are positive .
I’m dreading the day coming soon where all the Game Informer staff all become strays 🙁
so dope (cats approved.)
@2:03 4 hour run time IF you play like a human. Take your time, Explore!, Take a cat Nap, Scratch a couch. I'm just shy of 6 hours in and only 55% complete 😉
I always imagining a game from animal's perspective…
it will be nice to play as a Bear or Tiger
Can they add it to App Store..😭😭
I will say again, but to be honest I hope this game gets enough success in order to see a sequel or, even better, a franchise.
This review is just right. The highlight for me was how dense and beautiful the world is, but man, did they get the way a cat moves, and feels just right. The way the cat lands from a jump in particular, was just like my beloved orange Tabby, who looks very much like the cat in Stray.
