If you liked story based games . this is a good tale to play
20 October 2015 | by eapensterSee all my reviews

NO SPOILER REVIEW -THIS REVIEW HAS NO SPOILERS WHATSOEVER..MAYBE JUST ONE. SO PLEASE Don't READ THIS IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE SUMMARY OF THE STORY.

Alright i must admit 10/10 in rather generous for anything in life because nothing in life is perfect..But it is perfect when you accept it the way it is.. Here is a strange review for a strange game with a strange story. This might be the lesson hidden in this whole game that you can never make life perfect. You got to do what you can in strange situations and learn to live with it. Life is indeed strange. That i am writing a review for a game at 4:20 am . For a game i never thought i would play.The strangest this is i got this game as a gift and never bothered playing it till October the 19th 2015... And i couldn't stop playing till it reached chapter 5 which wasn't out yet. And to my uttermost surprise the 5th chapter came out on October the 20th. i didn't know this and it was incredible shear coincidence..Life is strange. Now for the review lol

Who is this game for ? Life is Strange is a great game for people who like a good story . And also people who like college drama and Sci -fi and philosophy and photography.

How is the Graphics ?

There are many scenes in the game were the places are so artistically created that you just sit and stare at it. Even though this is not a fantasy game. It does have a lot of beauty in it.Like the flag on the curtain of a certain someone in the game and how light streams through it. The engine does give wonderful visuals. Even though the visuals are not photo-real (no pun intended ) and has a style of its own. It still holds its ground visually.

How is the Story Voice over and acting?

The story voice over and acting for this game is really good. I like how you can kind of read the emotions of peoples faces and body language. Even when you are not talking to them this adds a lot of be-livability to the game .And you get a seance of life in a high school (unlike any one i have been to ) . So its refreshing and a familiar sight for you American folks out there :-).

Is it worth buying ?

I think this would be a great time to buy the game as all episodes are out and you can enjoy the whole story

Will it run on my computer ?

Aha ! this is something everyone likes to ask and i must say it should run on most computers. I am using a laptop with a geforce 2 and the game ran at medium detail in full HD resolution .

One advice for someone starting the game ?

Plants don't usually need a lot of water. all the time.
