"Farewell" succinctly captures everything that Life is Strange does well in a beautiful and devastating package.
Hell is Empty feels like a superficial way to cap its story off, as it chooses an easy ending to Rachel and Chloe's relationship rather than exploring its darker conclusion.
Don't Stop Believin' helps to undo a lot of damage of previous episodes, but this more level-headed characterization is five episodes too late.
Brave New World wastes what precious little time Before the Storm has on filler, holding back meaningful developments until the very end.
Who Needs You pulls out tedious nonsense and meaningless set pieces all to keep you away from Guardians of the Galaxy's actual story.
But unless it's another one of the game's lies, Killing Harmony ends definitively enough that I'm content viewing it as more of a deconstruction of the killing game and perhaps a commentary on Danganronpa as a franchise than the beginning of a new story. It's not quite as profound, but it is daring. For that, Killing Harmony earns my respect, if not necessarily my adoration.
Before the Storm addresses old problems through an old story, and it makes a compelling case to reconsider its divisive protagonist.
More Than a Feeling drags as it attempts to salvage some characters, but can't overcome some of Guardians of the Galaxy's lack of clarity and visual flair.
