Life Is Strange: Chrysalis Review – Time Warped | Thejimquisition

"I’m not sure if there’s an audio version of the “uncanny valley” – the hypothesis that suggests lifelike-but-unnatural features can cause revulsion in an audience – but if such a term exists, it would most surely apply to the dialog of Life Is Strange. The characters presented in the first chapter of this episodic adventure game very nearly almost speak like human beings, but their tortured vernacular and misplaced implementation of cultural slang leaves one with an acute sense of alienation. The cast is predominantly made up of 18-year-old girls, which wouldn’t be remarkable if Life Is Strange‘s writers hadn’t been so desperate to convince us that these were hella realistic 18-year-old girls who hardcore talk like hella real kids and take sick selfies, like totally. Whereas most videogames resign themselves to ridiculous scripts and role with it, this one tries to make the speech as “normal” as possible – but with everything so overtly scripted and awkwardly performed, it just ain’t right."

Eugh, I kinda wanted to try this, but now I'm not so sure I'll enjoy it... I hate that kind of stuff, makes me cringe just hearing it.

This is the only negative review I've seen, just because someone doesn't like it doesn't mean its bad dude.
