Life is Strange 2's third episode is the shortest so far, but that doesn't mean it doesn't still pack a punch.

Whereas the first episode was a promising start and the second episode seemed like anomaly, this third episode appears to disprove that by setting a disappointing tone for the rest of the season. And we’ll have to wait yet another four or so months to see if that’s accurate or not.

Life is Strange: Episode 3: Wastelands is going to ultimately appeal to long standing fans. Instead of worrying about narrative or pushing the brothers closer to Mexico, it's more about the characters and their lives. This allows some of the characters, namely Daniel, get a moment to explain their feelings though it doesn't do much for the overall experience. Given the path thus far, I don't know if it will be satisfying or if they'll make the most of the supernatural elements but at least the characters are strong enough to endure the storm.

The original game charmed people with its characters and premise but fell through on delivering a satisfying story. This game feels like it’s been mapped out from beginning to end, and this strength carries me through its weaker moments so I can experience events like the climax of Wastelands.

Episode 3: Wastelands might be a shorter experience compared to past episodes, but that doesn't stop Dontnod from pulling off an excellent story at the halfway point of Life Is Strange 2.

More than halfway through the story of Life is Strange 2, and it seems that the series story is still off the track. Wastelands episode offers the same solid music and tempo that we expected, but nothing more, and the only reason it can be considered a good episode is because of the way it concluded and opened up a huge potential for the next episode.

Wasteland is the classic middle episode, capable of a captivating plot twist to the point of making it difficult to wait for the next episode.

Life Is Strange 2 Episode 3 has a thrilling conclusion but its core conflict and new characters never fully make a connection.

Life is Strange 2 Episode 3: Wastelands is a better effort than the previous episodes and feels more like the original game in the franchise.

Overall, Wastelands is a small bump in the Life is Strange 2 road. The story is still engaging enough to keep players going, but perhaps this episode was too ambitious.
