Well, judging by the first episode, the game itself is very interesting to play. I didn't really pick this up for it's trophies, since I enjoyed the hell out of the demo.
In any case, speaking of uninspired trophy thumbnails, I have personally not seen a game with less uninspired trophy images than Beyond Two Souls. And speaking of ease of the game trophies -- I had a lot of fun exploring the locations in Life if Strange to take required actions to get each trophy, while after platinuming BTS I was so miserable I'll never even look at that game ever again.
Overall, it's kind of a cute game with very nice graphics and story, which is indeed nostalgic and romantic in it's own sort of way. But I could see some people not liking it and it's fair enough.
