The Life is Strange

I went through a kick of games, all the choose your destiny type games. So here we go!

So who wouldn't want to be a photography student with the ability to rewind time at any moment?! Welcome to the butterfly effect. After foreseeing an approaching storm, our heroine Maxine Caulfield is going to take matters into her own hands and try to prevent it from happening, or at least try to warn people of the impending doom.

Now, my friends all told me I would love this game. I love the Telltale games (Walking Dead, Wolf Among Us, ect), so I was really excited to play this one. And honestly...I didn't understand all the hype. But everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Now I'll explain both the high points and the low points for myself.

The Good:

I LOVED the mechanics of the game. I think every decision based game should play out exactly like The Life is Strange. I didn't think it would be as wonderful as it was. But it was incredibly smooth and interactive to pull you into the story.

Though this is rather a funny statement....the main character actually changed her clothes on a new day in the game. Now, I feel like most games don't ever represent this, so it was a classy touch for me, to actually see that I needed to change my clothes and stop stinking up the place.

The Bad:

The storyline.....is INCREDIBLE predictable. Now when I say, I wasn't surprised by anything. I mean it. I saw everything coming a mile away, and I hoped with rewinding time something would be surprising...but it wasn't.

Character development was also a big no no for me. Okay we have a weird girl, the queen bee, a jock, the good girl gone bad, the girl everyone picks on, an emotional character, the goofy love interest, everything was the standard generic characters that I was hoping we'd get a good development on...but....the only one that gets a decent development is Max.

If you want something sort of casual to play this would be the game for you. And I will admit, I did beat all of the chapters because I wanted to know how the finale really ended, even though I knew it was coming. And of course you might really really enjoy it and be like this girl is crazy. But remember the butterfly effect is a dosey.
