How Good is it? Stray

Just like a cat, Stray lands firmly on its feet.

Stray stands as one of the sleeper hits of Summer 2022. While the BlueTwelve Studio title initially saw a debut trailer in 2020, feline fanatics waited over two years to play. After such a long wait, should you pick up this PlayStation and PC title or leave it on the digital shelf?

Stray is a strong release, scoring an 84 average with critics on Open Critic, with 87% of reviewers recommending the title for purchase. Similarly, players enjoy this title, giving it an average of 8.6/10 on Metacritic.

Most reviews describe Stray’s adventure through a cyberpunk city as intriguing and adorable. Players not only platform through a town inhabited by robots but also solve clever puzzles. There are also a few action segments to keep players interested and invested throughout their playthrough. Critics did note that the adventure is brief, taking at most eight hours to complete. Despite this, the title is well worth your time.

Despite being BlueTwelve Studio’s first game, it’s a stellar title that stands apart in the video game industry. Though fans had substantial expectations, the developers surmounted them.

We loved Stray at Press SPACE to Jump and gave it an 8/10. You can check out our Stray Review here!
