Finished it. Nothing groundbreaking, but it was quite enjoyable.
Story is interesting, but I expected more daring take on the main theme and especially more interesting and uniqe characters. At times it almost felt like watching some soapy TV series. Certainly not what I expected from a mature game.
I also didn't like David Styles's character design very much. I just couldn't connect the supposed genious with a profound voice charm of Anthony Hopkins, with some young (almost anime-like) pretty boy, who wears the phantom of the opera mask. Vanilla Sky and Tom Cruise's character springs to mind. The only difference is, in Vanilla Sky his character did make sense (he was obsesed with his look), while in Gray Matter it felt under-developed.

Still, it was a good game.. just not what I expected.
