Under arrest, and facing tough questions from law enforcement, Sean is running out of options. Only quick thinking and unexpected allies can secure his freedom. “In Episode 4, we re-join Sean at his lowest point. The disaster that separated him from his brother has scarred him for life, and he is lost, alone and in quite a bit of trouble,” said Michel Koch & Raoul Barbet, Co-Creative Directors of Life is Strange 2. “Sean is already at a breaking point, and now faces some of the toughest situations in his life as he desperately searches for Daniel, whose absence hangs heavy over the whole episode. Considering what happened in that California Redwood forest, even if he can locate his brother – he can’t be sure of who, or what he will find.” Searching for Daniel under the scorching Nevada sun and through freezing desert nights, Sean must make his toughest choices yet. Puerto Lobos and the dream of freedom have never felt so far away. Will Sean’s faith in Daniel be rewarded – or is the younger wolf lost forever? Expand

    Faith is Life Is Strange 2’s most engrossing, heart-wrenching episode and may likely stand as one of the best across of the entire franchise. What it lacks in gameplay, its excellent writing, wonderful performances by the cast, dramatic camera work and cinematic nature more than makes up for the deficit. It is how DONTNOD maturely handles sensitive subject matter like racism, belief, and family that makes this season feel far more grounded to a familiar reality than those before. As far as season finale lead-ins are concerned, Faith will have you counting the minutes until the anticipated conclusion.

    “Faith” continues Life is Strange 2’s examination of a broken system to showcase a series at its most powerful.

    Life Is Strange 2 Episode 4: Faith brings back all the feels of the first episode in this compelling instalment that introduces you to the boys' mother and an evil cult that wants to exploit Daniel’s powers. Despite its short length, Faith does an excellent job in preparing for a phenomenal conclusion of the series.

    Dontnod once again delivers the goods, with a well-paced, thoroughly intriguing narrative. In the end, the result is perhaps a bit too repetitive to be truly great, and the same can be said about the game's animations. If you're into the story, though, you shouldn't be too bothered about this.

    As the penultimate chapter of the season, Life is Strange 2: Episode 4 brings the story to a head with several challenging situations.

    Faith is a tough, methodically paced episode of Life is Strange 2. While the chapter could have used a little more direction, excellent character development sets the sequel on track for a strong finish.

    Episode 4 is not like the others. This episode focuses on solitude, reflection and reconnection. It features some exiting moments but they come too late. Still. A good setup for a great ending.

Still, there's less development in the brothers relationship after the huge climax at the end of the precedent episode, but new relationship is explored here. And it feels great ! Without Daniel, Sean has time to reflect on himself and definitely gain some maturity (or some closure, depends on your choices).

    We get to see once again, a whole new environment, as we continue to travel south.. And the game don't shy away oufrom it's closer to the border. f political points of view as it goes

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Once again this episode relies on the "racist or racism causes problems, but here comes a nice white person to make up for it" card, making this Racism: the game. The use of this over and over throughout the game's episode tarnishes its potential to show it has deeper meanings, leaving much to be wanted. Some bugs I noticed were lines repeating themselves over and over, scarfs clipping into character models, and I had difficulty using the dialogue options. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Wow, out of all the episodes this is by far my least favorite. The choices you make in the episode have very little impact. The characters choices in it make ZERO sense(his mom 100% randomly appearing), Jacob after being constantly tortured by the church and knowing how massively screwed up it was takes Daniel there, and Daniel going along with everything after being angst master 9000 throughout the whole series up to this point does a 360 in how his characters acts.

    On top of all of this DONTNOD massively pushes it's political agenda making almost every single white straight person in the episode massively nuts, racist, or just plain violent(with the exception of the trucker). I understand their point but this goes way overboard and just shoves it down your throat.

    Finally this episode was very, very short compared to a lot of the others with almost minimal interaction with Daniel and the choices in it don't feel fulfilling in anyway in the episode. I really really liked the previous episode because the choices and how you acted affected everyones relationship with you and had clear outcomes within the episode along with the romance choices. This episode just felt way too linear compared to the last and is a clear step backwards in terms of gameplay and storytelling.
