Life is Strange 2 - Episode 5 Review

by Hiddenx, 20:04

RPG Site reviewed the final episode of Life is Strange 2:

Life is Strange 2 Episode 5 Review

In playing and reviewing episodic titles, I’ve learned never to wish for a happy ending. Episodic games, in general, thrive off drama and hooks to keep players coming back. Without a reason to remember the game two months later and see what happens next, many people will simply drop off the game, making the model fail.

This logic also applies to the conclusions. An ending that sparks discussion and debate can get people that fell off the title, or those waiting until the end of the season, to finally jump in and see what the fuss is all about.

Life is Strange 2 had lofty expectations placed on it. The success of the first season coupled with an incredible first episode for the second season has left everyone wondering how Dontnod was going to wrap everything up. I’m happy to report that Episode 5 is every bit the conclusion that Life is Strange 2 deserved, no matter how painful that is to truly say.

Note: This review will have spoilers for every previous episode. There will be no direct spoilers for Episode 5, so please don’t spoil anything in the comments!


Score: 9/10
