7.8 / 10.0

The second episode of Life is Strange: Before The Storm digs deep into the emotional tale behind Chloe and Rachel and made me want to see them succeed. Interactions with other characters can feel unimportant despite context, but many of these choices feel like they will actually hold consequence and are more believable than the first episode. Frustrating fetch quests interrupt what is ultimately an engaging story which leaves me needing to know what's coming next.

One of the best Life Is Strange episodes so far, with more earnest and relatable character work and some impressive branching storytelling.
