Life is Strange is game produced by DONTNOD Enterteiment, released by Square Enix. The game has been serialized in five seasons. We play Max Caulfield, who attends school on a photo profile. She possesses the mysterious power - the time reversal, so she manages to save her friend - Chloe Price. Strange luck is the weather anomalies in the town. Both characters are experiencing interesting adventures, and the ties between them tighten. Our goal is also to solve the mysterious disappearance of girls attending school. The game is characterized by interesting characters, eye-pleasing graphics and the ability to make decisions that may have consequences in the future. This is by far one of the best adventure games of recent years.
Life Is Strange was quite a trip. My emotions were all over the place playing this game. Sometimes I was relaxed and happy and other times I was shocked and angry. The music, characters, environment, and dramatic story all contributed to an overall amazing experience. A brief prologue: The main character is a teenage girl named, Max Caulfield, who recently returned home to a small town by the sea and now attends a school hoping to become a photographer. One day during class, she discovers she has the ability to reverse time. And from then on, she discovers the benefits and consequences of having such a power. Coincidentally, Max is reunited with her best friend, Chloe, a rebellious girl who she has to help find a friend who went missing. Each episode is based on making choices, from dialog to time travel, which affects the story in different ways. It was cool to have different options and see the results from them. The only con from this game may be it's ending, which left some things to be desired. But besides that, I recommend playing Life Is Strange. It's a beautifully crafted game that will stay with you after your done.
Well, sort of time travel. In this game, the protagonist can rewind time, to do things differently, then the first time. Basically, se can quicksave quickload in real life. A massively usefull skill! The story revolves around two friends, who find each other again, a mistery, a murder, and a whole lot of bad people, and some good, who are all worth knowing. The quiet Campus town really feels alive in this game, i'm not sure if it exist in real life, but it feels real here. If you liked Donnie Darko, and want to play with her much nicer and cheerful sister, definietly check out this game!
Life is Strange is an episodic game that was released in episodes that I really wasn't expecting much from. I mean really, games like that can be fun though from what I've seen they aren't 5 star material. So when I found the free demo I tried it, and was hooked. What little I played was awesome, but I needed to see more. Needed to experience more of the game, so I didn't hesitate purchasing it. I have to say, I never regretted doing do. And with a prequel coming out soon, it might be a good idea to get this awesome game and try it before the prequel hits.
It's not good. The story seems promising (apart from the fact that it is based on a deus ex machina), but goes downhill rather fast. I was frustrated with how bad the plot is by the end of the second episode, and while some of the characters and developments are interesting, the choices are actually really limited. Sure, you can alter most of them any way you like, but the game is actually linear. What if you don't want to go to a certain location, or prefer the way things are in episode 4? Too bad, the game will force you to do some things anyway. Plus, the game, especially later on, relies too much on a certain lazy plot mechanism that I won't spoil, but will just say that is centered around pictures. And the gameplay is rather mediocre - collecting bottles, really? Rarely was a puzzle really interesting - those were obstructions through which I wanted to go as quickly as possible to further the story. Oh, and how about allowing the player to skip dialogue? I read it much faster than it is being said, and the voice acting is not phenomenal (and I wouldn't have to look at those awfully unsynchronised lip movements).
