    A worthy (and free) successor to Life is Strange, and an intriguing teaser for the full sequel. Dontnod have improved on most accounts and look to draw in new fans with this prologue.

    If The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit cost a bit of money, we’d still highly recommend it. The fact that it’s totally free means it’s elevated to a must-play, even if you have no plans on playing Life Is Strange 2 - and if you’re considering it, play this now. Any minor quibbles we might have, like some interactive points not being obvious, drop away when you remember that it’s free.

    Like with past entries, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit shines brilliantly when it focuses on its story. This episode is as saddening as it is charming, and it balances the two magnificently while making sure to include moments of suspense and mystery.

    Life is Strange gained a huge cult following, and whether you're a veteran or a newcomer, Captain Spirit captures a lot of the original game's appeal.

    Even though The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is more a Life is Strange 2's pre-purchase commercial than a decent complete game, it's cozy and satisfying to play because of great environmental storytelling, vivid characters, and interesting explore experience.

    A very short, but lovingly narrated adventure, skillfully combining serious and funny topics.

    The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is a mediocre adventure game, even though it’s free-to-play. However, if you are a fan of Life is Strange series, it can very well serve as an appetizer for Life is Strange 2.

    DONTNOD Entertaiment Strikes again.
    It's not only a fascinating game, it's incredible.
    Put yourself in the shoes of a 10-year old kid called chris, that uses its imagination due to its recent mother death, in game, you control him, it's normal, but in the end, it's magical. Recomended, because, it's FREE!, so nothing bad its here.

However, the game is absolutely free and it will give those who aren't already fans of the series, a taste of what a DONTNOD adventure game feels like. Expand

    Not so awesome

    The awesome adventures of captain spirit
    Not so awesome
    The Awesome Adventure of Captain spirit is a free to play prequel to life is strange 2..
    The decisions you make here will carry over into that game… but I didn’t really find much deciding to be done here other than 1 or 2 moments in this 2 hour game
    I went in with high hopes for the awesome adventures of captain spirit, I loved life is strange and bits of before the storm…
    the game starts with promise as you’re describing the type of super hero your want captain spirit to be..
    This isn’t your typical life is strange episode though..
    This game takes place all in one area… the home and yard of 10 year old Chris.. aka captain spirit…
    it’s a Saturday and you have a list of awesome things to do.. there are also tons of not so awesome things to do like the laundry and dishes…
    there is a story to uncover here.. the emotion youre used to from this series is here and im excited to see where this story goes or how it ties into life is strange 2 as we don’t know who that game is all about, though after playing through captain spirit I have a few hunches…
    unfortunately though the awesome adventure if captain spirit just doesn’t capitalize on the idea of childhood imagination..
    this is a nostalgia trip as youre playing with your figures.. but where the game lets me down are the rugrat like moments where youre immersed in chris imagination..
    these moments are just extremely brief practically interactive cutscenes where you mash a button and that’s it..
    there wasn’t really a wow this is a neat game moment for me…
    The awesome Adventures of Captain spirit is free so theres really nothing to lose by checking it out.. just don’t go in with crazy expectations to see something cool and unique.. this is more of a story teaser than anything else.
    I give The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit
    a 6.5/10

Многое можно простить, так как игра бесплатна, но бесплатность не должна являться смягчающим обстоятельством. Графическая стилистика и основная механика остались неизменны, поэтому констатируем дополнительный минус в потере визуального "вау-эффекта". Expand
