    As a whole series, Life is Strange has been an intriguing and emotional experience. The rewind mechanic is an intelligent inclusion to the interactive drama genre and gives the impression of having significant control over the narrative. That said, there's certainly an argument that player choices have all been leading to a singular binary decision which somewhat softens the finale's emotional punch.

    Like an inquisitive teenager, Life Is Strange raises a lot of questions without ever providing answers, and it’s here that the game’s story might be incongruous with the player’s mindset.

    I can’t believe this “game” has such a high rating. It’s so bad I literally threw it in the trash after playing the first episode. ThereI can’t believe this “game” has such a high rating. It’s so bad I literally threw it in the trash after playing the first episode. There doesn’t seem to be any conceivable way to die or lose the game – you’re just playing through a story about a bunch of losers who obviously will never make anything of themselves in their lives. The whole time travel thing is nothing more than a gimmick – it has the exact same effect as any game where you can save prior to making some supposedly critical choice, using the save to view the immediate impact of each choice, and then deciding which choice to make.
