Life is Strange

XBox: The Official Magazine - - OXM INVESTIGATES -

For­mat Xbox 360 | Re­lease 2015 This is an­other ti­tle that fo­cuses on char­ac­ter. The re­la­tion­ship be­tween pro­tag­o­nist Max and her best friend Chloe is a touch­ing and heart­felt one. The whole idea that Max has the abil­ity to ma­nip­u­late time doesn’t seem all that im­por­tant in the grand scheme of things. The game has some cheesy di­a­logue at times but it makes up for it by be­ing so well-ob­served. All your de­ci­sions have an emo­tional weight, right up to the fi­nal mo­ments where you’re forced to make a tough choice. This wouldn’t be so poignant if the de­vel­op­ers hadn’t al­ready done the nar­ra­tive leg­work.
