    Life is Strange 2 is one of the best stories in video games. It tackles a lot and handles all of it with grace. It’s emotional, evocative, heartwarming, and heartbreaking. Every choice you make matters not only to you, but also to those around you. The journey of the brothers Diaz is one you absolutely need to take.

    Dontnod revisits their universe with a narrative-heavy video game filled with difficult choices and supernatural powers. This time, though, they show courage by distancing themselves from the story of the original game and by discussing complicated themes. Complex, political and with a powerful message, everybody should play Life is Strange 2.

    This is put simply a beautiful poignant game that begs to be played. It is so thoughtful that anyone who does buy Life is Strange 2 is going to feel something when playing it. It is an experience that you will not soon forget after completion. I hope that you take that time like I did to fully go through and savour a game that is truly a joy to play.

    A good narrative adventure, less impactful than the first Life is Strange, but a great message.

    Life is Strange 2 is able to tell one of those stories that are hard to forget. It feels like a step back from the original, but if you get emotionally involved with the characters, it will stay with you.

    Life is Strange 2 is a worthy sequel to both Life is Strange and Before the Storm. The game can't compete with either of them, but makes for a good third game. The story of Sean and Daniel is compelling and keeps you interested. Although there is a quiet episode in the middle of the story and not everything makes the impact you expect.

    A game with noble intent without the skills to fulfill its potential, showing that sometimes life isn’t strange, but disappointing.

    One of the best stories in video games. One of the best stories in my non-strange life.

    It's hard to write a review about this game without spoilers, but here goes. While the first episode seems shorter than lis 1's first episode,It's hard to write a review about this game without spoilers, but here goes. While the first episode seems shorter than lis 1's first episode, that's only because it's way more fluid in it's narrative. (You won't waste hours looking at the same pointless Rachel poster.) The game does dive into the political side of America, the ugly side, and it does it well. Let's be honest. We play the lis games for the feels,(and the cool atmosphere/music) and you will have them in the first episode. The best part is that during the entire time I'm was playing, I never once wished it was Max and Chloe on the screen. That speaks volumes about what dontnod has accomplished. Expand

    The story starts of exciting followed by more boredom by chapter. The game has a cool concept yet the gameplay is not exciting what so ever.

You play the game as one of two brothers who are mexican, beautiful and perfect in every way. Everything bad that happens to them is at the hands of angry white men(they even throw in a "this is why we need that wall" line for good measure). Everything good that happens to them is at the hands of woke hipsters and rainbow hair colored SJWs.

    Having played 2 episodes until now, so far the Wokeness in Episode 1 had been CRINGE level, while in Episode 2 we did get some story, some. It's such a shame that games producers have veered away from just telling a good story, instead of force-feeding me woke SJW pandering. I mean, who was this game made for? The people who liked Life is Strange 1? No, though that's who probably ended up buying this. It's made for the blue hairs, people who don't support anything.

    I honestly don't think there's any spark here for fans of the first game(which I am myself).

    Non è un gioco. Non esiste un gameplay se non camminare e parlare con personaggi costantemente scritti in modo non originale. Non originaleNon è un gioco. Non esiste un gameplay se non camminare e parlare con personaggi costantemente scritti in modo non originale. Non originale come la trama.
