Review

Ok. I didn't think I'd be able to fall in love with another character after Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm (Chloe, of course 😍). But this character is way too similar to me. I felt her pain, I thought her thoughts, I LOVED her wardrobe 💜💜💜💜 we even have the same name lol
Also, a huge difference from the previous game (Life is Strange 2) was that this game wasn't too depressing hahaha so I was able to finish it way quicker cause my mental toll was less. It was also generally easier for me to play this one. The decisions made more sense to me even though they were still hard. Idk I just feel like I was more invested in the story and not too worried about accidentally killing characters 🤣
In summary, you play as this 21yo woman named Alex (Alexandra) who has this "empathy" gift. But she's not just an empath like a regular person, she literally feels other people's emotions and can hear their thoughts. The first chapter is super sad, but the rest are less depressing (at least with the choices I made).
Another super cool thing is that at one point the game asks you about your preferences and I really loved this because I was able to tell my crush that I was a lesbian 🏳️‍🌈 and omg the sexual tension between them was 🔥🔥🔥 also I got to flirt with her which was cool. Maybe I just liked it because of them both lol
Don't worry, you can also choose to get with a man if that's your preference :D haha
