The jury is out on whether or not Life is Strange 2 is superior to the first game, but it is undoubtedly bolder and more ambitious, with something meaningful to say.

After about 15 months, the journey of Diaz brothers finally comes to an end and so does our business with Life is Strange 2. There are a lot of reasons to play this game; interesting and engaging story, beautifully designed environments and top notch voice acting. Although the shallow gameplay and long dialogues can make the experience a little less pleasing, but overtime you engage more and more with the story. Overall Life is strange 2 is one of the best adventure games of 2018 and 2019.

With its strong message and touching plot, Life Is Strange 2 is a game that I would highly recommend for gamers and non-gamers alike.

Stories usually need some sort of momentum and Life Is Strange 2 had trouble maintaining it for multiple reasons.

Living in America as a kid with brown skin has never been harder, or more frightening, and Life Is Strange 2 is a harsh primer in that fact. Nevertheless, there’s light and beauty in this journey, as this is a game that values the boundless hope of the two young men at its center, and without invalidating America’s darkness.

Life is Strange 2 delivers a strong message and it's impossible for you not to feel some emotions while playing through the five episodes. Nevertheless, the story is not as interesting as the first game, most characters are not memorable and above all: the character we control (Sean) has no powers (only his brother has). That is, we play in a passive way, guiding Daniel. The mechanics of going back in time from the original Life is Strange are what made it unique, while its absence here makes it just another adventure among so many others.

It was worth the risk: Life is Strange 2 tells an emotional and touching story, just like the first game, and the finale is much better this time. Although the pacing sometimes suffers, in the end this road trip still is great.

Life is still strange with this series. Dontnod managed to open difficult topics and made them playable, but the game isn't as appealing as the first one.

Dontnod revisits their universe with a narrative-heavy video game filled with difficult choices and supernatural powers. This time, though, they show courage by distancing themselves from the story of the original game and by discussing complicated themes. Complex, political and with a powerful message, everybody should play Life is Strange 2.
