Life is Strange

Developer: Dontnod
 

We’ll admit that we were a little sceptical when we played the first chapter of Life is Strange, but by the time we’d reached the closing, tense and emotional climaxes, we were in awe of Dontnod Entertainment’s episodic wonder.
 
Life is Strange tells the tale of Max, a photography student who discovers that she has the rather unique ability to rewind time.
 
It’s up to you how you use Max’s power, but with a storm incoming and a cast of characters that need her help, you’ve got some big decisions to make.
 
The story weaves around the events that happen between Max and her childhood friend Chloe, backed by one of the best game soundtracks I’ve ever heard for all the feels.
 
Life is Strange is a gaming feat that every gamer worth their salt should play – and will remember forever.
 
Plus, there’s now a Collector’s Edition that contains a boxed copy of the game, the soundtrack and an art book for just £24.99.

Buy Now at Amazon.co.uk from £23

At time of review the Life is Strange was available for £29.99

How the hell can you give GTAV a 10 out of 10 when this game is fucked up by placing gamers in bad sport lobbys.

When you talk about Great games, it's pretty much GTA and Witcher 3 on PS4 right now... everything else feels underwhelming longer term.

I don't want to see anyone say Call of Duty, because that game is a joke when you compare it to actual great games.

Witcher 3 is nothing short of a masterpiece, sadly a lot of people won't even try it, because they're too wrapped up in this disgraceful era of run of the mill FPS games, to actually adapt and play RPGs.

One game I wish they'd release in EU/NA is Dragons Dogma Online... if it's anything like Dark Arisen on PS3, it will be a superb game.

we need more great RPGs on PS4 right now.

I'm into both. I like the Witcher 3 and bought it because I knew it was known to be one of the most well developed and most rich games available, so thought it would be the best to use to explore the potential of the PS4. Saying that I also own Black Ops 3 and have all the COD series on PS3 so... I guess I'm just odd.

Why are you bashing on fps mutiplayers? You cant aim? Are you forever the christmas noob? People dont try rpg games because fps has a social aspect that single player rpg doesnt. Get out of your moms house and try socializing

It could also be argued that some people don't need a social aspect to their games, bc their social life is separate from their gaming time.

Your RPG stereotype is a pretty by the numbers statement. It can also be said that FPS gamers sit in their mom's basement, smoke weed, and talk sh** to online strangers all day....but that would be generalizing all of them. Not fair, right...?
