GripShift

Playstation Illustrated
24 August 2006
  • Excerpt: Graphically, GripShift is an interesting game. The graphical treatment is cartoon-like, and the tracks are whimsical and defy the laws of physics. There are a few different types of cars that you can use in GripShift , each with its own strengths and weaknesses. Three of them are available from the beginning of the game, while there are a couple of cars that have to be unlocked. There are four characters you can play as: two girls and two guys.

GripShift Review

  • Excerpt: A quick glance at the box art and you may instantly dismiss GripShift as yet another racer for the PSP. A kart racer with weapons and edgy characters is just what the doctor ordered. Yippee! Thankfully, things aren't as painfully dull as they seem, with GripShift actually trying to do something a little bit different from the norm. There are cars, pick-ups, huge leaps, plenty of environments and many more racing game staples, but a racer this is not.

  • Excerpt: It’s no secret that the racing/driving genre has been in need of a good strong dose of innovation for a few years now, so when a game comes along that claims to have mixed puzzle games, platform games and racing games ‘ you have to sit up and take notice. That’s exactly what Ubisoft’s GripShift claims, and for the larger part ‘ gets it right.

  • Excerpt: Driving and Puzzle solving. Not exactly a common combination is it... There’s a bit of a revolution going on in videogames, though, with the release of the PSP and DS handhelds giving developers a good reason to haul themselves out of the ruts they’ve made their home for the latter half of the current generation.

GripShift PSP Review

Game Info Wire

  • Excerpt: GripShift is like a movie that has great cinematography and a first-rate cast, but which doesn't tell a story you want to hear.

  • Excerpt: What do you get when you combine puzzle games with racing games? Extreme frustration and sorrow. GripShift is a rather clever game that sadly misses the mark just slightly, which puts it squarely in the realm of the mediocre. Well, the idea behind GripShift is uh... you're a cartoony Gen-X'er that drives a crazy looking vehicle on hovering roads in space.

Portable Review
22 October 2005
  • Excerpt: About a week ago, I was having a conversation with a friend about how companies are re-releasing, rehashing, and remaking various elements of the gaming world. Thankfully, Sidhe is here to save the day with GripShift. In this game, you don't simply navigate around a track, hoping to win against other cars. In fact, much of the time, you're the only car on the track.
