    An excellent, painfully brief piece of storytelling, with some decent characters and a lot of heart.

    Captain Spirit brings us the prequel for Life is Strange 2. The game revolves around Chris a.k.a. Captain Spirit. You get to make choices that affect the story and takes you through an emotional adventure. If you like Life is Strange, this is a must play.

    Simply awesome. Fans of the series know exactly what to expect while newcomers are welcomed into this world of tragedy and whimsy. It's free and fun, what more do you want?

    Despite some narrative clichés, the little prequel of Life is Strange 2 proves to be very effective in intensity and emotion.

    This is a small and free preview of Life is Strange 2. It shows how games of Dontnod play and it is amazing how Dontnod can tell an emotional story in a very short amount of time.

    Even though Captain Spirit stays in his comfort zone most of the time, there are some interesting new ideas in it. We definitely will see Chris again in Life is Strange 2, and I’m curious to see how his life will cross Arcadia Bay’s.

    The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit attempts to set the stage for Chris and his heroic adventures, but the execution is lacking. Its lack of focus, along with its robust “Awesome Things to Do” chore list, make its two hour runtime drag out far longer than it has any right to.

    "Tan bueno para ser real"
    Al iniciar con esta demo me he topado con una muy grata sorpresa, y es que me he sorprendido al encontrar un título que, si bien es solo una prueba de un gran trabajo por detrás, me ha conmocionado al saber que hay una gran narrativa de por medio. OJO, este juego no es para todos los jugadores, ya que habrá gente quienes disfruten más de una excelente jugabilidad, y Captain Spirit se queda un poco corto. Sí, Dontnod Entertainment ha querido innovar en comparación con el título anterior, y al menos me tranquiliza saber que llegará el momento en que pueda ver el resultado final...

    The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is a game I don't think anyone expected. While it does not hit the same emotional or climatic levelsThe Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is a game I don't think anyone expected. While it does not hit the same emotional or climatic levels as the original Life is Strange, it is still very good keeping in mind that it is just a short demo. The new father/son dynamic is interesting and it is filled with a great sense of creativity and imagination. I am interested to see how the story continues into the future. Expand

    With an incredibly short length of just around an hour and nearly no challenge or puzzle solving, you won’t find much which will get you hooked here if you’ve experienced the adventures of Max and Chloe.

    However, I must give the game credit for fantastic handling of emotional moments and a particularly nostalgic charm brought forward to the premise which will bring many back to the days of their childhood.

    It is Life is Strange, just without the long length and challenge, two aspects which really helped the first two entries in the franchise to be enjoyable and really allowed us to connect with the characters.

    Definitely worth the purchase because of the lack of pricing, but don’t expect too much depth here, not as much as the original two games at least.

    while i haven't actually """""played'''''' the game i dont have to this isnt a **** game its a REALLLLLLLLLLY bad visual novel, and imwhile i haven't actually """""played'''''' the game i dont have to this isnt a **** game its a REALLLLLLLLLLY bad visual novel, and im hesitant to even call it that because at least even some of THE WORST visual novels are actually interesting on their own, i say on their own because the way i experienced this game was through the Friends Without Benefits letsplay of it, and let me tell you that is one of the the FUNNIEST series on the internet period, and that series and that series alone is what saves this game from a 0, in short DONT play this game if you wanna experience this game watch Friends Without Benefit's letsplay of it, seriously its REALLY funny, W A T C H I T Expand
