Summary: " Gray Matter " delights and frustrates in equal measure. With good puzzles, a great story, and an interesting premise, this could have been fantastic.

Summary: Gray Matter est un peu un lapin sorti du chapeau dans lequel se trouve la foultitude de jeux apparus en fin d'année 2010. Un tour de magie qui offre aux joueurs Xbox 360 la joie de profiter d'un genre bien trop rare sur consoles : le point and click.
Pros: Proposé à prix réduit, Jouable, Bien rythmé, Très bonne intrigue, Graphiquement superbe

Cons: L’utilisation du menu radial dans certains environnements chargés, Certains environnements trop statiques, Les animations des personnages un peu moins réussies, Les textes, sous-titres pas toujours lisibles
