I rarely play games with Narrative concepts like this. Upon searching the internet with the games with an amazing stories. Life is strange keeps on popping off the charts. I suddenly gave this a try. Honestly, at first, It's a cringe game for me due to the way how the game was designed and their bad voice acting. However, after finishing the first episode, my impression of this game changed, and played this in a different way as if my life really depends on it. I learned how to value the impacts of each choice. I can really say that this game indeed has one of the most amazing storylines ever. Max and Chloe's journey are so unique. It was fun yet it was too depressing as well. I chose the ending where I got to save Chloe and it turned out that majority of people who played it also did the same. What I really like about this game aside from its story is the soundtrack. Damn! Every scene will hit you right in the feels! kudos to those music arrangers and composers of this game.

I have never played this type of game in which you have to choose choices and it feels more like a movie than a game. But I must say, life is strange is a must play title. I enjoyed every bit of it and got glued to its story. It is kind of your favourite web series that you watch on Netflix but the thing here is, you can control the story and its protagonist. My perception is changed and I'm looking forward to play all AAA titles that come under this type of genre. I definitely recommend this game!

Life Is Strange is an impressive mixture of great writing, great voice acting, and interactive storytelling that'll pull on your heart strings like it's going out of style.

Life Is Strange feels like it should be quirky, or arch, or featuring a cameo appearance by Greta Gerwig. Instead, it's unfocused but earnest. It's a brilliant attempt at progressing and improving Telltale's familiar style, even as it's not, in and of itself, brilliant. I could nitpick multiple problems with the plot and pacing, but Life Is Strange nonetheless remains one of my favourite games of the year.

Como esperaríamos en un point and click, casi todo el valor de Life is Strange reside en la narrativa. Hay un par de momentos en los que el gameplay destaca, pero termina aplastado por la intensidad de la historia y el desarrollo de los personajes; para disfrutar la experiencia es necesario jugar el título completo porque va de menos a más.
