Yeah, it's me again, back with another Life is Strange deal. Spotted in Swansea, good stock on both formats.

One Person Can Change Everything.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm is a new three part; standalone adventure set three years before the first game in the BAFTA franchise.

You play as sixteen-year old Chloe Price who forms an unlikely friendship with Rachel Amber, a beautiful and popular girl destined for success.

When Rachel learns a secret about her family that threatens to destroy her world, it is her newfound friendship with Chloe that gives her the strength to carry on.

No longer alone the girls must confront each other's demons and together, find a way to overcome them.

Not quite as good, and it changes Chloe’s character quite considerably from how we first met her. However, the intricacies of the dialogic choices and the sense of genuine influence over the outcome of the story is still a winning formula. There’s a new argument battling system whereby you can try and get your own way through verbal sparring which is a gimmick but a neat one at that, and there’s a fair bit more expansivity to the NPCs and how you interact with them (I spent 20 minutes playing a RPG Tabletop game with the school nerds that was surprisingly fun to do)... I think emotionally I wasn’t as invested in this as the stunning first game, but narrative still hooked me and at £12.99 for a physical collectible copy you really can’t grumble at all as it also includes a bonus chapter which is more than just a crummy incentive. Short version - not as good, but even not as good for LIS is great and better than most butterfly effect games.
Free delivery over £10? WOO! Thought for a second I'd have to go on a wild goose chase for a hmv with this actually in Stock.

It’s quite boring tbh. Absolutely nothing like the first one.

Personally me and a few other fans of life is strange liked this one more than the first but it all depends on what you think of Chloes character etc too. I became quite attached to her in the first one

There is only one disc edition of the game this time round, unlike the first game. Unless you stumped up for the top of the range vinyl edition direct from Square Enix.

Then you liked a cheap cash-in made by a developer who had nothing to do with the original game more than the original game.

You'd probably love fanfiction.net as it's full of similar quality stuff with just as much relation to the things they're based on.
Gotta be honest. Before the Storm was a bit disappointing. I think Chloe as a character is at times a bit insufferable but that is not without reason given her situation. But the talkback mechanic she has is not enough of a game mechanic alone to replace the time rewind of the original. The time rewind work because it allows you as the player to work out to evaluate the potential outcomes and when it is taken away it enhances the importance of the decision that is made without it. Thus helping the narrative as well and acting as a gameplay mechanic

Before the Storm is not without its moments (I loved the theatre play for instance) and although its clear the developers Deck Nine have a lot of affection for the original developed by Dontnod Entertainment. Overall it feels all too rushed compared to the original series and lacks the charm and the sense of incoming danger of the original

Good price but it was never £47.99. Game had it for £35 pre order as that is where i got it from on preorder haha.

They love to think you save loads, but at £12.99 I would say it is worth it for the disc copy indeed.

Instead of insulting how about you just accept some people have a different opinion? Jesus attack on a comment... don't see me doing that to everyone who didn't like it. He asked a question and I answered with my view

Didn't mean to be insulting, but I can see how it came across that way. My bad. Mean it with the fanfiction.net recommendation though. Before The Storm is literally licensed fanfic.
