    Life is Strange: True Color's well written cast and rich setting help make it easily one of the strongest outings this franchise has had.

    Life is Strange: True Colors, appears to be a game that is designed in all respects, for a subset minority of gamers, where goals of inclusivity have the undue effect of weakening the experience and demonstrating a lack of respect for the audience’s intelligence. Life is Strange: True Colors, was more enjoyable towards the latter half of the story and ultimately it is still a worthwhile play, however it is not a game that you will want to play twice.

    Life is Strange: True Colors is the first-ever game I bought officially, with my own money. I don't know if $60 was worth the entire gameLife is Strange: True Colors is the first-ever game I bought officially, with my own money. I don't know if $60 was worth the entire game (plus the $5 tax jesus christ), but...

    This game beats every other Life is Strange game for me. I cried. I felt extremely happy. I felt angered. I felt shocked. I felt scared. I felt everything the game wanted me to feel thanks to its absolutely amazing art style and soundtrack. I had the exact same amount of empathy that Alex had. I didn't have a perfect ending. I didn't make all of the best choices. But I ended off with a smile and tears in my eyes. I'm not that great at tastes, so, if you don't like story-driven games or games that relate to this generation of players, and if you don't like the talk of real-world problems, and if you don't support anything that the world still needs to catch up on (LGBTQ+ support, Taiwan), this game isn't for you. That's why I believe there are so many negative reviews on this game. Most of it is review bombing from Chinese players angry about the game's acknowledgment of Taiwan as a country. The other negative reviews have mentioned and complained about "far-left ideology", which isn't even somewhat true. There's nothing that is far-left here. You live in Colorado, you can choose a gay relationship if you wish, and there's a transgender character mentioned in the story. If you see this part of the review, you'll have more neutral viewpoints in the mixed reviews, so if you don't want any blind love on the positive side and blind hate on the negative side, you should invest time on the mixed reviews. But still, if you don't like what the game includes in its story, then don't buy it. No point in wasting money you know you won't buy, right? But if you enjoyed Life is Strange, you'll love this game too. I hope you do.

    Being on the Xbox One, the game doesn't run at a perfect FPS and has numerous lighting glitches and long loading screens, but it just didn't break the unbreakable emersion for me. If the game didn't have these issues, I would've given it a perfect 10.

    The story is engaging, if a bit basic, but the characters and their interactions with the protagonist, Alex, keep True Colors interesting fromThe story is engaging, if a bit basic, but the characters and their interactions with the protagonist, Alex, keep True Colors interesting from start to finish.

    The game always tackles its themes of emotional trauma and healing tastefully, without beating the player over the head with them.

    Deck Nine picked the best elements from the series's previous instalments and used them to create one of the most interesting and refined adventure games on the market.
