Life is Strange: True Colors is like a play in which the player takes the role of director to control events without leading the scene.

Life is Strange: True Colors has the best characters in the whole series, but at the same time, it also has the weakest story. The narrative takes way too long to take off, and by that time, it might already be too late for many players.

Life is Strange: True Colors opens phenomenally well and then somehow loses its way, never really knowing if it wanted to tell a cheesy conspiracy story or dive completely into slice-of-life territory. I wish it chose an identity. Most of all, I wish it took some chances. I don’t want to say the series is growing stale, but there’s certainly a careful balance needed between giving fans what they expect and reinventing some aspect of itself. This is a cool world to get lost in over a weekend, but it may float on by as a passing phase.

So if you've played previous versions of it and don't like it, give Life is Strange another chance. I'm sure True Colors will change your mind. It will even force you to play it again and make completely different decisions.

For some, a game like Life is Strange: True Colors will be just that: a game. For many others, it’ll hit different, tapping into our deepest emotions and perfectly displaying our feelings in a relatable portrayal. It will peer into our very soul and reveal our own true colors, making our choices that much more impactful. With beautiful visuals, wonderful performances and animation, and an out of this world soundtrack, this is one game that will sit with me for a long time. If any of that sounds interesting to you, then you’ll likely enjoy this game. If you happen to be a fan of Life is Strange in general, then you’ll love True Colors.

Life is Strange: True Colors doesn’t deviate from the formula in any way, and in fact calls back more to the original game than before. But even though it is walking a familiar path, it does it well.

Life is not only strange, but also short, that's why Deck Nine puts Alex Chen in idyllic Haven Springs, where people are as nice as pie. So it's not another "me against the world" type of narrative, but a more collaborative effort. And that's good, which makes "True Colors" the best installment in the series since the first game.

I deeply loved Life is Strange: True Colors and at a certain point it was fast becoming my personal game of the year. Sadly, with inconsistent storytelling and a really messy final act, it feels that I’ve been emotionally manipulated to like the game until a breaking point. While one could argue that “it’s all about the journey”, a really messy resolution really ruins that journey it built up.

Life is Strange: True Colors is what the franchise needed to get back it's original fan base. Maybe a little slow or social for LIS2 fans, this game is made to rejoy the ambience, listen to it's music, admire the landscapes and be a good person with Haven Springs habitants. A feelings fulled history you will like for sure, but be patience.

If you’re invested in stories that will make your heartache and your stomach flutter, Life is Strange: True Colors is worth your time.
