Yep most certainly, I should of thrown an "IMO' at the start of that sentence, sorry if sounding prescriptive.In your opinion. It's worked well for me. I think anyone who says that X is not a good fit for anyone's game is pulling out the badwrongfun card. As long as your table likes it, it's the right choice, IMO.
Actually I think Fate Core can do gritty flavour as well, but it's a hard sell to try and tell that to anyone, and I personally don't attempt it with Fate Core primarily due to having other rpgs that do it fine. I love the old Crit Tables from MERP, the hit locations from RQ/BRP/Mythras, WFRP etc, so they are my go-to rpgs for gritty settings.
However Fate can certainly do it if someone is good enough with the right narrative descriptions for Aspects, Stunts, and Consequences. It's really up to the GM running it how gritty or how pulpy it feels, and for me the lighter end of things is how I like it, the rollicking adventure/action stuff, or with Tolkien-like prose and whatnot
