It shows a lot of promise as an episodic game, but there are certain mechanics that leave me feeling a bit skeptical for this franchise’s future. I think Episode 1 is worth a play through, but whether or not this becomes a fantastic multi-episode game will depend on the choices the developers make from here on out. Considering the game’s subject matter, that seems entirely appropriate.

Despite its shortcomings, there's a powerful kind of nostalgia I draw from its characters and world. The time travel aspect is cool, no doubt, but I'm down with the little things. I've enjoyed spending time in the complicated life of a teenage girl, because it reminds me of what it was like to be one. It's the first game I've ever played where I felt that my life was represented on screen - even at its weakest points. Life is Strange uses the ordinary in a way that is extraordinary.

Life is Strange offers something different and unusual. Not only is the protagonist a young female, but central to the story is her friendship with Chloe. But we found that rather than experiencing something strange and exotic, we are dealing with themes that are universal. We've all struggled to fit in at one point or another. We've all had that one childhood friend that we drifted apart from and lost contact with.

Solo inglés y francés de momento, un desacierto que nos parece inadmisible en obras de 2015 y con tanta importancia del argumento. Este primer episodio de cinco, también, tiene el handicap de perder tiempo en presentaciones y pasos básicos. La acción de rebobinar el tiempo o los puzles podrían dar mucho más de sí, quedan por ahora algo desaprovechados. Aún así, si éres un ávido de aventuras gráficas que dejen huella, aquí hay un nuevo invento que, si sigue bien, dará que hablar.

Manche Rätsel sind zwar übertrieben leicht und das Kennenlernen der zahlreichen Personen nimmt zu viel Platz ein. Dennoch habe ich jede Minute dieses Wohlfühl-Abenteuers in vollen Zügen genossen und bin gespannt darauf, wie es im März weiter geht!

La réalisation est correcte pour un format épisodique et la mise en scène réussit même à étonner le joueur, notamment au tout début de l'aventure avec « le passage des écouteurs ». La BO, très folk, sert parfaitement l'ambiance et rend le tout aussi singulier qu'attachant. Clairement, on a envie d'en savoir plus !

Här läggs en fin grund för något som kan bli riktigt bra. Jag diggar atmosfären, musiken, detaljerna och förankringen i verkligheten, med karaktärer som känns som vanliga människor som snackar film och musik och relationer. Visst, många roller porträtteras rätt klyschigt och jag har svårt att köpa hur snabbt Max accepterar sina nyvunna tidskrafter, men sett till helheten är jag nöjd.
