  • Summary: Life is Strange is a hand drawn work of art and every action enacts a butterfly effect - but with the power to rewind time, what would you change? And would it turn out to be a change for the better or worse?

    Much more than the sum of its parts, Life is Strange is equally absorbing forcing us into impossible choices or capturing the joy of the mundane. It's not perfect, but you won't forget it in a hurry.

    An incredible narrative experience, with a great script and packed full of moving moments. And with a great artistic design and a flawless soundtrack choice, it's the game every story-driven games lover must play.

    What could I have done differently? Even with the option to rewind time, it is a question you will often ask yourself when playing Life is Strange. A unique story that asks of you to make big decisions, just to blow you away with the consequences.

There is so much I could say about this game, but the key points to why its so good is because its the kind of emotional experience that hollywood wishes it could create. Movies and tv shows can only go so far. You empathize with characters and their struggles and the things they face, but in this game you actually have to come to terms with the hard choices and situations yourself. Its such a beautiful and powerful story and experience. I cannot recommend enough that you play this. Expand

It had a strong female roll to boot, told an amazing story, incorporated super powers without making the main character feel cheap, or like a god among human, but just rather an extraordinary human. The choices and characters were built in such a way I felt for them. This is an A+ game, episodic or not. Expand

It is a game that plays like a well written book with a butterfly effect-esk theme. That being said this game is an emotional roller coaster with numerous decisions one must make that affect the game down the road. It is a plot driven game that keeps you guessing from start to finish. I found myself spending a good 7 hours binging the last 3 chapters. The only complaint I have is about the (few) scavenger hunt quests. One of them in Chapter Two is brutally long and tedious, however it only seemed like a chore that one time. The original soundtrack and score for Life Is Strange is fantastic and is one of my favourite parts of this game. All in all, if you are looking for a story driven adventure this is your game. Square Enix did a fantastic job with Life is Strange and I applaud them. If you do choose to buy Life Is Strange, do yourself a favour and but the season pass, otherwise your paying for an incomplete game. Expand

    If you want a perfect example of how a disgracefully bad game looks like, your example is that horrible game.
