Critic Reviews for Life is Strange: Before the Storm - Bonus Episode: Farewell

Farewell, although definitely not flawless, is a great addition to the Life is Strange universe and a perfect prologue to Dontnod's original title.

Review in Spanish | Read full review

A prequel that manages to retain almost everything that made the original game something truly special, despite its 'natural' nature and its focus on 'just' feelings.

Farewell is upsetting in the best of ways. A wonderful, tearful, round off of Max and Chloe's story and a fantastic appetiser for season 2.

If you're a more hardcore [Life is Strange] fan, this episode is certainly worth a playthrough as it provides a more relaxed and carefree, yet melancholic and tragic, epilogue to the Max and Chloe saga of Life is Strange.

The Farewell bonus episode of Life Is Strange: Before the Storm is short but should be required playing for fans of the series. A thoughtful well written glimpse into Max and Chloe's life before it got so strange.

Deck Nine have finished off Life is Strange in sterling fashion. Saying farewell to Arcadia Bay with Before the Storm is sad, but the best farewells usually are.

This is a Farewell for Life Is Strange fans, but Deck Nine once again does an outstanding job of telling a heart-wrenching tale within what is, effectively, someone else's story. DONTNOD may be the creators of this wonderful slice of life series, but the American developer's done an impressive job of furthering the fiction with Before the Storm – and this episode ties a big fat bow around Max and Chloe's yarn for good. Now, what's next?

If you're an absolute die-hard fan of Life Is Strange, which you likely are if you're considering the deluxe edition, then jump right in and say your own goodbyes to Max and Chloe. However, if you've not played both the original series and Before the Storm in their entirety, Farewell likely won't resonate with you in the same way.
