Loving It! (SPOILERS!!)
This is our written review on Life Is Strange Episode 1: Chrysalis.
Life Is Strange is a story developing game where you choose every action and therefore every consequence.
Each aspect will be rated from 0-25 points.
The feel; 25!
I couldn't help but love the feel of this game. It felt like I was in a movie and I could really relate to the characters (no I can't time travel unfortunately) but the emotions and story of each character had their own versatile life to them and I can agree with the title, life is strange.
Complexity/Difficulty; 18 (More complex than difficult, but could of been much easier if the stupid CD in Chloe's room was easy to find!)
This game has no difficulty meter as every action you make twists the story a different way, like I was seriously scared that turning on Max's stereo would cause a murder or something.
Nobody can really say this game is difficult because you play it how you want.
Development Status (how well was it made); 22
Yes, this game was made pretty much perfectly, I like the fact it is split into 5 episodes, it's a bit like waiting for the next episode of your favourite TV show.
The graphics aren't super realistic I know! But it still looks beautiful and I believe the graphics really suited the game's style, and they did focus more on storyline and making the game work for release so there's an upside.
Overall Enjoyment; 25 (I really wish I could go higher)
I haven't enjoyed a storyline based game as much as this since, well... ever. I will probably go on to repeat this game over and over and most of that time will probably just be spent laying on Max's bed, listening to the music on the Hi-fi or making paint spill over Victoria (so fun).
Overall Score = 90/100 or 9/10
Should You Buy Life Is Strange? Yes, buy it all!
