What is it about?
Life Is Strange delivers phenomenal production design with an ornate 3D engine, and deluxe voice work. The storyline is outstanding with the coming of age story mixed with the familiar teenage drama that combined is the backdrop to the Sci-Fi time travel narrative. There is so much intrigue to the storyline, and it’s all such a promising idea. The execution though is what derails the experience on iOS.
Why we love it
The biggest problem with Life Is Strange is the core time rewind idea goes against the core decision engine adventure. The most appealing aspect of a decision based game is that you’re actually deciding things that will have ramifications. Life Is Strange sucks all of the life out of the decision because there’s no consequences to anything that you do. If you pick a poor dialogue choice, or mess up an action, you can just rewind and fix things. The potential to rewind isn’t the problem as much as the game flashes in your face that you should rewind. In fact, the game holds you by the hand to make it an almost on rails experience to follow along with what the developers wanted you to do in each situation. You can’t just go with your gut instinct in the dialogue choices, or react poorly because another character grinds your gears. The storyline won’t even proceed unless you perform a specific set of actions, which removes all of the intrigue in these types of games.
