We strongly recommend both series to anyone that enjoys slow-burning interactive storytelling. We just warn you that, emotionally speaking, it's going to be a rough ride – for you and the characters.

Deck Nine have again managed to find a particular point in time that feels natural to explore.

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

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.

This bonus episode can't be missed by fans and should convince them to go into the Deluxe Edition of Before the Storm if they didn't. Farewell is a great way - carefree and melacholic - to say goodbye to Max and Chloe.

Before the Storm's bonus episode doesn't feature the series' best writing or any pivotal choices, but it all works as intended here. It's just a fond farewell to a friend. One that gives players one more opportunity to see two of their favorite characters interacting with each other, and one final chance for the player to say their own goodbyes.

"Farewell" succinctly captures everything that Life is Strange does well in a beautiful and devastating package.

"Farewell" is a very nostalgic and heart-warming episode of Life is Strange, maybe its "true ending".

Life is Strange: Before the Storm's Farewell Bonus Episode tells how Max said goodbye to Chloe before they meet again in Life is Strange. It is an episode that will be best enjoyed if you have played both games before. The story is touching, but we already know many things and even its end before we even begin playing. It is worth checking out because we can see more of Max and Chloe, but it is not an important episode - far from it.

Will fans enjoy Life is Strange: Before the Storm's Bonus Episode: Farewell episode? Without a single doubt, yes! However, for a chapter revolving around what is probably such a pivotal moment in the franchise's history, it's also kind of disappointing, as it's a bit too short, the drama is not as strong, and the choices at hand don't alter things that much. In fact, most of the fun will stem from snooping around, rather than everything else.

It’s worth getting the deluxe edition just to experience Farewell, as no fan of Life is Strange should miss it. This short, but sweet bonus episode is truly remarkable in a way that few games can match.

As someone who hasn’t played the original Life is Strange, “Farewell” successfully piqued my interest in continuing to explore Chloe’s life and her relationship with Max.
