    This final episode of Life is Strange 2 showcases the powerful emotional storytelling that video games can harness. It is a fantastic example of the medium and the perfect end to a series that continues to deliver on its high expectations.

    Life is Strange 2 ended as it began: an emotional, uncompromisingly political story that succinctly represents player choice in its final moments.

    Over the last year, Life is Strange 2 has been quietly weaving a powerful and sincere narrative experience that admirably carries on the series’ legacy.

    The conclusion of the Life is Strange 2 season is a great one. It answers all the questions you have and goes out with a bang. All of the seven endings are emotional and worthy to the season. The epic journey of Sean and Daniel is a great one and your choices really matter in the end. DONTNOD once again delivered a great season.
  7. 70
    A relatively engaging finale but one that suffers from all the problems of the series as a whole, with too little interactivity and a lethargic plot that struggles to get into gear.

Questo è Life is Strange 2, la storia dei fratelli Diaz, costretti ad un viaggio in cui dovranno lottare contro pregiudizi, violenza e tanti altri aspetti tanto reali nella nostra società, che culmina in una fase finale che colpisce forte al cuore e che rende difficile dare l'addio a questi due fantastici protagonisti.

    Lo consiglio a tutti coloro che vogliono vivere un'avventura indimenticabile.

It will be sad no to continue the Diaz brothers on their journey. People complain about games being political but this story is important. This stuff happens all around. Racism and other types of phobia happens all the time. The story isn't just about racism. It is about bonding. It is about love and acceptance. It is is about overcoming justice. It is important story to tell and it was told well. Expand

I felt like the two endings I experienced (had to go and see the other closely related ending because I was THAT curious) had more depth and closure than either ending you could get in the first game.

    I found myself actually caring about the side characters introduced in this installment. Something the last few episodes struggled (but kinda succeded) to do.

    I think some more interactivity and choices would have made this better and I dont really know how believable the two endings i saw are in reality but its not too hard to forgive it by any means (at least to me).

    Overall, a solid end to a mostly solid game. Honestly think as a whole package, it rivals the first if not succeeds it a bit in the narrative quality.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. About time this game is finally done.

    The last episode was another disappointment, this one is slightly better but as with the very first episode the French developer is unable to address politics with the honesty and nuance they require, which of course once again takes away from the story they are trying to tell.

    It is funny that after saying for years that they do not want to define anything regarding Max and Chloe they caved hard and spent time on doing them justice and updating the player on how they are. Products always have to fail in the market before developers get off their high horse and actually start caring about what the people that buy their games want.

    This does not save this game from being a terrible entry in the Life is Strange franchise, but it does give hope that the publisher finally understood why the first game was so popular.
