Stranger Things 3 closely follows the events of the third season of Netflix’s popular show by the same name. It’s a pixel art isometric game where you can play with a friend and explore Hawkins. For a game based on popular media, it’s surprisingly well done, and and if fact adds tidbits to the story that are not present in the show itself. Exploration and interaction is generally fun, while there are some fetch quests and repetition that detract from the overall experience. Since the game is based mostly on the events of the third season of the show, I would recommend playing it once you have seen all the episodes, and for it, it was actually better this way.
Dull side quests
Not for you if you’re not into the show
Score – 8/10
Stranger Things 3: The Game is the official companion game to Season 3 of the hit original series! Play through familiar events from the series while also uncovering never-before-seen quests, character interactions, and secrets! This adventure game blends a distinctively retro art style with modern gameplay mechanics to deliver nostalgic fun with a fresh new twist.
Just like in the show, teamwork is at the heart of Stranger Things 3: The Game. Fans can team up in two player local co-op to explore the world of Hawkins, solve puzzles, and battle the emerging evils of The Upside Down as one of twelve beloved characters from the show.
