    The episode starts with the narrative on hold. But when it reaches its middle point it gets on track and we can enjoy a long investigation all action and puzzles. Something happens, at last.

    Come October shall we look back and wonder where this potential went? Perhaps we shall ask ourselves what could have been done differently. Or, perhaps, Life is Strange will navigate these concerns, becoming the game we hoped it would be.

    Dark Room finally sets off the mystery but it’s the least consistent episode of Life Is Strange so far.

    It kicks off right away with an intense travel back to our reality and after a short buildup and some detective work it gets really really dark and darker.

    That's been a really interesting and unique emotional experience

Yes, it is the mostJust when I thought that video games can no longer affect me as they used to came Life is Strange (especially Ep 4). Yes, it is the most glitched episode (time mechanic, sound sync), but what a story!!! I've never been so shocked (even though what Dontnod did in the Ep 4 with story is what I suspected after previous episodes) as with this game. "Dark Room" certainly doesn't deserve 10/10, but for the first time I have to give such a mark. Unbelievably high bar is set for Dontnod and their final episode of Life is Strange. Full Review »
