Review: Life is Strange remastered

Life Is Strange™_20161119205134

Reaching out to save her, Maxine discovers her ability to rewind time and saves Chloe. The two best friends’ dynamic play a large part in the video game. Maxine is the shy and reserved photographer, and Chloe is more of a loud-mouthed punk and high school dropout. 

In these episodes, you experience the consequences of Maxine’s reality-bending powers and the bond between her and Chloe. You discover the dark secrets of Arcadia Bay and make difficult choices that can change the narrative of the entire game. It’s an immersive journey filled with detailed characters and plenty of emotional moments. 

The remastered edition of this game brings a good number of improvements including better facial animations and lip sync. These changes further develop the characters and add more layers to a great story.  

The photogenic environments of Blackwell Academy and Arcadia Bay also got a new coat of paint. The new lighting and textures make for an overall better experience. There are some annoying bugs that deter from the game such as texture pop-ins and other visual problems.
