Took me a few years to review this, but glad I did. Comments?

I've been looking forward to this review. Life is Strange piqued my interest about a year ago when I watched a Youtube video about it, so I bought the game on disc, but it's gone unplayed ever since. My wife hates most of the games I play, but occasionally she gets hooked enough that she actually enjoys watching as I play.. (in recent memory, both The Last of Us and Fortnite are the two that have interested her most). Something about Life is Strange struck me as one that we might both like. Your review still has me interested in that, since it sounds like the game is heavy on story and does it well.

I'm surprised by your score though -- not because it's wrong, but because your posts in the past year about this game have always seemed really positive, so I had anticipated an A or B range review coming. You mention the bad ending, so I wonder if that led to a sudden downturn in your review score.

During the ending, which is stretched out beyond belief, the main character says "I feel like I'm stuck in a nightmare"

To which I replied "I know the feeling!"

I have it on the One box you will ever need. I played to the dorm level and got bored with it. C seems to be the right

Love the game but agree with the score. It's absolutely a worthwhile experience, but the ending and the overall low quality of the character graphics are serious blemishes. In my review I believe i gave it a C+.

If you have not had a chance to play yet, give Dreamfall Longest Journey and Chapters a go.
