Life Is Strange is highly rated on SteamDB (95.05% at the time of this entry) and so I decided to give it a try today.

Thoughts:
Pros:
+ Promising story

+ The first episode is free.

The high school hallway

Neutral:
~ Decent graphics

First Impressions:
While the game started off interesting, I eventually lost the majority of my interest in it. It's unclear to me what aspect of the game caused this to be the case. In particular, I noticed the game strongly structured itself with aspects of classic point-and-click adventures, and I thought this would make the game enjoyable.

Max reaches out and rewinds time for the first time.

My best guess is that the primary puzzle element of this adventure game revolves around the time rewind element and perhaps this felt more annoying than fun for me.

Summary:
None at this time.
