Life is Strange is a game produced by DONTNOD Entertainment. We play Max Caulfield, who is a student at Blackwell Academy, in a prestigious college for photographers. Our goal is to solve the mysterious disappearance of a girl, and in this will help our friend, crazy Chloe Price. The action game takes place in a fictitious town - Arcadia Bay, Oregon. At the beginning of the game we discover the power of time reversal, which has its effects. In this game we have a lot of choices that will affect people's behavior and more. The game looks very interesting, the graphics are very pretty as if painted pastels. I did not like the audio track because I do not like the type of music. I honestly recommend this game, it took me about 12 hours, which I think is a great result for the adventure game.
Como siempre con estos juegos, las opciones no cambian la trama, realmente ni siquiera importa en absoluto, pero cambian la forma en que mucha gente le habla al tiempo, los textos que recibe, o algunos De las cosas que usted ve en el ambiente. Tienes que saber que respuesta elegir porque porque eso cambia el futuro del juego, me gusto mucho

I played this game on x360 a year ago after hearing so many things about. I got the entire season pass for $15 and I knew I was paying too much then and after a year of thinking about this game I still think it is one of the most overrated games out there. The gameplay is very similar to the Telltale games where choices matter, searching for items to press advances your story/action, and you have to talk to everybody. The core gameplay is never more complicated that walking around (or slowly running) and clicking on items. The one time the gameplay really got good was in Episode 4 where you have to solve a puzzle using multiple pieces of evidence. This was by far the most enjoyable segment of the game, but it was one small segment of one episode in a five episode game. Most people will argue these types of games aren't about the gameplay but about the story. This is hard to argue against so the story has to stick out. After the first episode, it does get interesting albeit very cliche even with the twists. Movie drama fans will not be surprised by anything. The voice acting for the main cast is done well, though. I actually didn't mind many of the characters even when I really could have been aggravated with them. This isn't to say the VO is perfect for the entire cast, but at least the main characters were handled well. Graphics are nice, nothing special, but I get the look they were going for, but still many technical problems (hit collision, tearing, and so on). I can't fault the game aesthetic, but I can't say the graphics are outstanding either because they are rather dull. Replay: A game like this where your decisions matter should have a ton of replay ability. The game doesn't. There are approximately three to four big decisions, of these really only two I would say make a considerable difference to the game. The ending of the game is a cop out, but probably is the only way to end a game like this without a lot more content. Bottom Line: A Well acted story that is more fluff than actual substance. Telltale Fans will enjoy the game far more than me Graphics 6 Music/VO 8 Gameplay 5 Story 7 (being very generous with this one) Replay 6 30/50 60%
Life is Strange is a game by eclectic developer Don't-Nod, and published by Square Enix. It follows a similar game-play style to Telltale games (The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, etc.) The game is about Max (Maxine) who discovers she has the ability to rewind time and change the events of her world. She uses these abilities to affect the relationships of those around her, while investigating into the disappearance of a missing classmate. Generally with these types of adventure games, there is an effort to make it seem like the decisions you make affect the story. Your dialogue decisions have a much stronger short term affect than long-term. For example, you can treat one character awfully, but no matter how they're treated, they'll still help you out later in the game. Ultimately, Life is Strange probably would have been stronger without the illusion of choice. The game feels like it skirts the line between wanting to tell a specific story, but needing to conform to popular gaming mechanics of the time. However, what Life is Strange does differently over The Walking Dead and games akin, is quite interesting. Due to the ability to rewind time -and therefore undo recent decisions- it gives the player the ability to truly think over how they want to approach a situation. Here's how it works. You enter a conversation with a person. You can choose to say A or B. You can rewind and see how the conversation flows both ways as many times as you want, but once you walk out that door, your decision is sealed. Generally your decisions have a positive and a negative, so neither is clear-cut. Gameplay aside, the characters are interesting, albeit a tad stereotyped. The music is often light acoustic guitar reminiscent of an artsy teenager studying photography. If you want a game with an interesting mechanic, good music and characters, and are okay with ultimately disappointing illusion of choice then Life is Strange is for you. The story as a whole is quite good and the mystery will keep you playing. Most people loved the game until the final episode. Take it how you will, but for $20, it's probably very worth the money in my opinion.
