Critic Reviews for Life is Strange: Before the Storm - Episode 2: Brave New World

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.

Though tragedy on the horizon colors all of Chloe and Rachel's interactions, it also makes the fun and hopeful moments more poignant

Chloe Price's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day goes to some fascinating places in this middle chapter.

It's heart-breaking to see this happen to good people, but it's also tough to get too invested in anything that's tangential to Chloe and Rachel's plight. We're barreling toward a conclusion and we already know it's more tragedy than comedy. Brave New World cements Before the Storm as Chloe and Rachel's story. They're the lead roles and everyone else is just set dressing.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm Ep.2 builds a story in which both the player and Chloe herself explore her personality. The narrative's pace suits perfectly the game but, with just 1 episode left, it leaves a lot more questions than answers.

An interesting episode that sometimes makes us a simple spectators of Cloe's actions.

While a few problems are certainly present, Life is Strange: Before the Storm is still on the right track. The characters and plot points remain interesting and the choices, when real choices, are very well thought out.
