Aside from its poor dialogue, Life is Strange reminds me most of a Rob Thomas television series. Like Veronica Mars or iZombie, developer Dontnod’s episodic drama stars a regular young woman with an extraordinary quality. Main character Max Caulfield can, for unexplained reasons, rewind time. Aside from that, she’s a typical teenage girl. She has friends, personal problems, passions, dreams, a little crush, and other believable qualities. But a combination of ambition and obligation drive her to use her talents, wit, and personality to make the world a better place. With all of that going for it, Life is Strange: Episode 1 – Chrysalis is the first step toward something fascinating and personable, but its laughable script and worse performances obstruct its otherwise touching, human story.
