Life is Strange: Before the Storm

Choice and consequence driven narrative adventure game.

Life Is Strange: Before the Storm is an episodic graphic adventure video game developed by Deck Nine and published by Square Enix. You play as sixteen-year old Chloe Price who forms an unlikely friendship with Rachel Amber, a beautiful and popular girl destined for success. Unlike its predecessor, the game does not include time travel. Instead, Before the Storm features the ability “Backtalk”, with which the player can call upon Chloe to get out of certain precarious situations; “Backtalk” may also make a situation worse. 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. A dialogue tree is used when a conversation or commentary is prompted. Occasional decisions will temporarily or permanently change outcomes. The environment can be interacted with and altered, including marking walls with graffiti. No longer alone the girls must confront each other’s demons and together, find a way to overcome them.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm Review

8.9 Total Score

Life is Strange: Before the Storm is a prequel for the 2015 released Life is Strange. Incredible and magical as it should be, charismatic characters, interesting and varied, a wonderful soundtrack and an impressive art direction, the game touches on delicate and controversial subjects with a lot of respect and makes the experience very immersive and magical. The best thing about this game would certainly be that Chloe, while younger and not quite as punk yet, is still Chloe. She's witty, she's confrontational, she's self-centered, and deep down she's a complete nerd with a kind heart. Rachel is a difficult and complicated character first introduced in season one. In season one in Max's perspective, we could only see Rachel with a troubled personal life, bad influence to Chloe and a famous Blackwell queen. I didn't expect Before the Storm to be nearly as good as Life is Strange but the devs have shown that there's so much more potential for more stories around Arcadia Bay. Words cannot describe how incredible Deck Nines take on the Life Is Strange universe is.
