For all its strides in pacing and character development, the same pitfalls that dogged its predecessor still lurk within. [June 2015, p.88]

By showing signs of what it can be, rather than what it wants to pretend to be, things are far improved. [June 2015, p.77]

It’s still easier to construct narrative contingency than to make it meaningful.

Simmers quietly but enjoyably, before boiling over in a tense final act. [June 2015, p.80]

The second episode pushed the storyline forward with a style. Technical issues and low impact of your in-game choices denied the better score. But the breathtaking finale indicates we have something to look forward to. The story openly avows to the David Lynch legacy and together with a perfect atmosphere there is a potential to catch gamers’ curiosity - an extremely important ingredient for a story-driven game.

It’s a smart game that’s essential for anyone who thinks they can see through the mechanics of other episodic, choice-based games. We thought we could, and Life Is Strange slapped us in the face.

The story is keeping a good pace and the time manipulation ability still impresses us. This could lead to something really good.

Out Of Time doesn’t make the same impact that Chrysalis did, but it is just as good in every respect.

Despite its generic title, “Out of Time” is the best episode yet of Life Is Strange. It increases the complexity Max’s life and the power she commands.

With this second chapter Life is Strange becomes better because the game retakes what was right on the first episode with a story that is more interesting. If things continue in this way, the game maybe will be a surprise that we were not expecting.
