Interactive storytelling and plot-heavy games gained popularity, and “Life is Strange” arrived as teen mystery adventure. The plot will go through the life of Maxine, a teenager in possession of curious power, allowing her to stop and rewind time, in order to manipulate her surroundings. Max, after the reunion with her friend Chloe, is on the path to uncovering the secrets of Arcadia Bay. Players will have to deal with puzzle solving through the fetch quests, in order to change the world around them.
The game puts players in situations, where they’re forced to make a moral choice, going through the decision which may have short-term or long-term consequences. Every choice made by the player will trigger the butterfly effect, surrounding the first playthrough of the game with a lot of emotional struggle, thoughtfully crafted by the developers at Dontnod Entertainment. Life is Strange is third person adventure game, where players might seem just as an observer of the stories, unfolding in front of them.

    Life is Strange reviews and comments

    Would be so good if Chloe wasn't insufferable and the story didn't wet the bed in the end
    «Reviewers bribed»
    Made me cry ( more than one time )
    Thank you DONTNOD.
    «Blew my mind»
    So... This is OVERATED as fuck.


    The characters are boring stereotypes of what a 40 year old french man thinks teens (millenials) are.
    Chloe, a grade A bitch. Max, boring and has no emotion.
    Villain, uninteresting, bland and came out of the bloom.
    The background characters are bland and have no real weight on the story.
    The only character I was actually interested in was Kate Marshall, but she was completly toss to the back after, like, episode 3.


    That's so fucking bad and cringy. Just... omg...

    Contrary to most say, I actually like the art style and aesthetic of LiS, even if it looks iffy sometimes, mainly on close ups on the models faces.

    The story... As a LLLOOOOTTTT of plot holes, contrivances, paths that lead nowhere (I'm speaking to you Episode 4...), things that are left unexplained.
    Yet, I enjoyed it when I played for the first time.
    But the most I thought about it, the least I started disliking it.

    The soundtrack, pretty darn good. As an art student I hear that type of music in my school and believe that fits the game's theme, characters, period and setting. (I have the CD for LiS:BtS, and it is a banger)

    The choices you make during the game are pretty much meaningless.
    If you want to play a game where you decisions really matter and change the story, go play Detroit: Become Human or early Telltale Games like The Wolf Among Us.

    This game has a LOT of problems, yet I think it is a pretty good on time play game.
    Doesn't have that much replay value.
    «Disappointment of the year»
    Until near the end of the "game" its a near unsufferable 90's teen drama projected into modern days.

    The last chapters big revelation dont save the title from the trainwreck ending and lack of real choices.
    Pretty good game, I liked the plethora of characters and the big twist, decisions felt meaningful, definitely worth jumping into.
    «That ending!»
    «OST on repeat»
    ep 1-3 was good and then it flopped
    I bought this game for £5. I now realise it is worth so much more; how I missed this game for two years I don't know, I'm glad I finally got around to playing it; I haven't felt like this in a long time after playing a game, a completely lifechanging experience.

    Life is Strange is slightly similar to games of the Telltale series, your choices affect the outcome of the game and make subtle and huge changes throughout. You feel empathy for the characters in the world, and whilst handling mature themes such as depression, the game grips you to your seat. It is amazing! A masterpiece. The writers are on par with some of the best TV shows and films out there, it makes you question every choice you make, your own reality. As a player you actually feel like you affect the relationships between the characters.

    The music and art design are unique and aesthetically pleasing, which is a nice change from the usual games I play. The voice acting's brilliant, the lip synchronization is not so much, but it is not awful. Without spoiling anything, the twists in this game, WOW. I can see why this game has critical acclaim.

    Finally I must end saying how much I recommend this game. I've experienced nothing like it before, if you read this. Please try this game. You won't regret it.

    The game can be compared to the telltale games, although I like the art style and the music in life is Strange all the more. Everything seems so everyday and authentic (the time travel skills left out). Even though I was even more enthusiastic about the pre-quel and generally I still want the version for the mobile phone, I was a little disappointed at the end. Especially in episode 5, several bugs appeared. As an example, in the end sequence the Men music was constantly playing. Not even the end music appeared until I restarted the game. This initially destroys the entire atmosphere. And some of maxine's animations did not even exist when she started talking (in a completely animated sequence). And somehow david appeared in the picture much earlier, which looked a bit funny, as he was stuck in the table: D If sometimes the limbs were penetrable or even temporarily invisible, I can still understand. But especially the music really disturbed me in the end. And of course there was the star deduction, because I've been waiting four months for the last two episodes. And getting those bugs included is a bit sad. Too bad, otherwise it has been perfect content for me. Not technically yet.
