Ratings and Reviews
The fragility and fear of growing up. The terror of leaping into the unknown. Life is Strange tackles tough issues in a remarkable way, merging the superpowered and surreal with characters that feel authentic. You’re drawn into the adventure through gorgeous visuals. Sharp writing, excellent voice acting, and a compelling story make solving Life is Strange’s mysteries feel essential.
This is my FAV game, but a bug has me stuck in Episode 4, end of 2nd to Last Chapter!
Love this game. Played before the storm, too. This ones better. Played great my first time through. I’m having a problem playing it the 2nd time through... making different choices and having the story play a bit different. The game way playing great until the 2nd to last chapter in episode 4 of the dark room. I’ve now restarted the game about 6 or 7 times. Every time I click on leave the party, Mr. Jefferson is announcing the winner and right before he does the game completely shuts down. It didn’t do it the first time I played the game through.. but it is now. Because I made new choices.. I want to see the new ending. And because I’m not playing in collector mode.. I can’t skip through to the next chapter. It’s only a short chapter that is mostly narrative, but if I go to episode 5.. the bonus.. it’ll take me to how I finished the game the first time. I offloaded the app. And it’s reloading again now. It’s my last hope for the game to fix. I wish there was a way to get a response through my email or on the App Store about how this could be fixed.
Almost Perfect... Almost
This game is beautifully written and put together in a very good way. So far, I’ve only played episode 1, and I’ve had no technical issues or glitches. The character development is perfect, and the visuals and story are breathtaking. I love how your decisions affect the game, and even the music is great. The game is overall amazing, and I plan to buy the whole thing on PC if that’s possible. So why is this a three star rating?
The game is filled with so many curse words and vulgar speech that I can hardly breathe. Maybe saying stuff like that is more “normal”, or “in style”, but some people don’t want to hear that garbage. You lose more players from putting it in there than if not, so why do it in the first place? If there was even an option to turn of the strong and pretty much constant foul language, the game would be, by all means, perfect.
It almost hurts not to give such an amazing game a five star rating, but I just can’t stand that gaming companies are always making stupid decisions like these. Could you be bothered to add an option to turn it off? Other games pull it off. Pretty sure you could too if you cared.
(Not that you’re ever going to read this review, given that this game is made by big-name companies and typically they don’t want to/don’t have time to read the reviews, but I decided it would be a fair warning to anybody who wants to get this game.)
