A considerably less daring second episode, when compared to the first, that highlights the problems of episodic content more than it does the qualities of Life Is Strange 2.

Despite its two strong protagonists and their engaging plight, lackluster supporting characters and a mundane setting make this episode less compelling than the last

Episode 2 may not be an attention-arresting adventure like the first episode was, but it takes risks in slowing down its pace and throwing more plot intrigue into the mix.

Life is Strange 2 Episode 2 feels more like a crossover bonus sequel to The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit than a true continuation of the first episode

Rules is bookended by some heartrate-spiking sequences, but the majority is spent relatively comfortably. Music has crescendos and decrescendos because they're dynamic. Loud has more impact when everything was soft just moments ago. Rules is a decrescendo. It's quiet and it's retrained. But all indications are that Life is Strange 2 won't stay quiet much longer.

The second chapter of Life is Strange 2 overtakes the previous episode. Despite the traps that it does, "Rules" manages that we can empathize with Sean and Daniel more. If the beginning of the journey of its protagonists hooked you, you can't miss the continuation for anything in the world.

Episode 2 continues the strong start that Life Is Strange 2 made all the way back in September of last year.

An episode with a great writing but our choices lacks weight, making this a forgetable episode, despite it has some great moments on its limited lenght.

A lovely little diversion for the wolf brothers finds their biggest problem not to be the law, but inconsistencies in their own animation.
