LiS: True Colors - Review-Bombing of Chinese players on Steam


Actually, the newest part of the Life is Strange franchise, True Colors, got pretty good ratings. Even players are mostly satisfied, on Steam the title achieved a "very positive" with 85% positive ratings from a total of over 1500 user reviews (as of September 12, 14:50). How we liked the game, of course, you can find out in our detailed review.

But not all share this point of view. A number of Chinese players have made it their mission to rate Life is Strange: True Colors (buy now 59.99 €) negatively on Steam. And "flag" is the keyword here in several ways, because it is not about the fact that the story or the gameplay does not suit them.

How a flag became an excitement

The reason for the hail of negative reviews is a Tibetan flag in the game. Haven Springs, the setting for Life is Strange: True Colors, is home to a shop called Treasures of Tibet, which adorns the appropriate flag. However, it is also used by the Tibetan independence movement and is banned in China. As PC Gamer reports, many Chinese gamers feel attacked by it and therefore criticize the game.

"The game contains elements of Tibetan independence that imply a separation from China. Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau and Tibet have been Chinese territories for ages. No matter what the obsolete thinks, they will come back to Main country. I suggest the NEETs read more books, stop being stupid and find a job to support themselves financially. Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau and Tibet will always be part of China, "was one of the negative reviews .

Many discourses in China are still more than delicate and either banned or avoided wherever possible. This can be applied to the game culture there, as (not only) the review bomb for Life is Strange: True Colors shows. Recently, China significantly restricted the playing time for young people in online games and now wants to ban "unmanly" content from games as the next the title of the press Are you still unsure whether you want to play Life is Strange: True Colors?
