Critically Sane: "Life is Strange is steeped in all of that. Add in the solid game mechanics and some branching decisions that can affect the outcome of my story and I probably would have come out liking Life is Strange regardless. It is just the right combination of ingredients for my tastes. But it is that feeling of realism with how Max has to interact with people that really struck home with me and has me eagerly anticipating the next episode’s release. Because life is strange and it is refreshing to see such attention to that fact in a game story."
