Een gedurfd nieuw tijdperk van het bekroonde Life is Strange begint met een gloednieuw hoofdpersonage en een geheim dat ontrafeld moet worden! Alex Chen heeft haar "vloek" lang ontkend: het bovennatuurlijke vermogen om de emoties van anderen, die zij waarneemt als gekleurde aura's, te ervaren, te absorberen en te manipuleren. Wanneer haar broer bij een "ongeluk" om het leven komt, moet Alex haar onvoorspelbare kracht aanvaarden om achter de waarheid te komen - en duistere geheimen blootleggen die in het kleine stadje begraven liggen.

Characters, music, plot are all excellent. The opening was a little abrupt, and when you first gain control of your character, you're in a hugely detailed environment that made it painfully clear the game was running at 30fps, and not 60. Within ten seconds of playing (walking), you find yourself in a "zen moment" which you have to exit out of once you're tired of looking at it; I thought that was a really odd way to start the game.
Soon enough you get introduced to a bunch of interesting characters. Alex has a phone with social media and SMS apps so you can read more about the community and her friends. There's a returning character, lots of little details and easter eggs that series fans will love, and the dialogue is entertaining and natural.
Overall the game seems great so far. I noticed a couple of very brief graphical glitches that disappeared as soon as I saw them. No biggie. I am disappointed about the framerate and the lack of a special edition (again, no soundtrack CD) but the game itself is pretty good. I would definitely recommend this over LiS2 and who knows, it might even live up to the original by the end (although the opening sequence was far less iconic.) Here's hoping for a 60fps patch.
Edit: Now that I've finished the game I feel a little underwhelmed. The last two episodes amounted to about 2.5 hours total. The game is about 8-9 hours long.
Pros: Good characters, good soundtrack, interesting story.
Cons: Little-to-no replayability. Graphical glitches. Scenes started and ended abruptly (the ending of chapter 3 was particularly bizarre and underwhelming). A choppy 30fps performance.
I think this 9-hour experience was enjoyable but not worth 49.99. The COLLECTOR'S edition of the original LiS was half of that and it came with an art book and audio CD. Plus there's the DLC coming out for another £10... don't push your luck, Deck Nine.
7/10 (grudgingly rounded up to 4 stars.)
The others had more to do, more side games, more interaction and play - and while this one had a good storyline it just felt rushed. There is such a market for this type of game and while I will always be loyal to the Life is Stange games and family I was left wanting more, not in a new game way (although I will of course always want for that) but in a... I wish there had been more in this game as I feel a bit empty and deflated.
Like I say, the story line was good; you will find no spoilers here. The characters I found interesting and warmed to them instantly and Alex is a good lead to play and you become involved in her and her story.
The town is amazing, the kind of place in which the scenery takes your breath away and the detail painstakingly perfect so well done in that respect as I wouldn't change a thing.
I just want more gameplay so lost a star for that and that alone.
This game's story is told so incredibly slow that it's tiring to play. All the 5 chapters could easily be condensed into 2 or 3 if they just removed all the pointless filler. Only the 1st and last chapters have any real action in them.
You make very little meaningful choices in this game and the stakes are very low. I can only think of two somewhat hard choices in this game. This mixed with the almost non-existent gameplay means that it's barely a video game.
Your powers are very lackluster, you can't turn back time or throw objects around with your mind, but you can hold "x" and find out an NPCs vague thoughts. This comes with some interesting concepts in Chapter 1, where Alex struggles to control her powers around people with strong emotions. However, this problem is never brought up again which is disappointing as it would have made for some good moral dilemmas
Fairly short for a AAA game, took me around 6-8 hours.
All the characters are interesting and have their own personalities. Alex is also a good protagonist with a good backstory.
New Haven is a fun place to explore.
The story is enjoyable, albeit a bit cliched and cheesy.
The voice acting and facial animations are very well done and fit the tone of the game.
Despite it's almost fatal flaws, I still enjoyed my time with LiS True Colours. Alex's story and the town of New Haven was enough to keep me hooked for the 6 or so hours it took me to finish the game. This game could have been so much better if they had just followed the old formula and improved it slightly.
I wouldn't recommend buying this at full price, I'd say get it for around £20 on sale if you can.
