Life is Strange 2 ends Sean and Daniel’s journey to Puerto Lobos the same way it started: as a polarising, subversive sequel dedicated to telling its own powerful tale instead of just falling back onto what made the first game so popular. It may not be quite what fans wanted but Dontnod’s second season absolutely lives up to the original in its own way.
I think it is good. It was a slow burn for me, for sure. And I agree there were ups and downs, especially in the emotional pacing of the earlier episodes. But they really earned this ending.
This final episode of Life is Strange 2 showcases the powerful emotional storytelling that video games can harness. It is a fantastic example of the medium and the perfect end to a series that continues to deliver on its high expectations.
Life is Strange 2 represents a sophistication of Dontnod's storytelling capabilities because it effectively adds up and weighs moral decisions to truly influence the narrative outcome. Every ending comes with some degree of complication -- that much was to be expected -- but it's satisfying because they're all befitting of the characters you molded. Whichever direction you took Sean and Daniel's lives, chances are you'll feel responsible for their fates. It's personal. Because it's personal, it's memorable. That's about the utmost positive quality for this style of story.
Wolves is a solid conclusion to an amazing road trip. The story of Sean and Daniel was something very special and this episode doesn't let us down as it is, again, full of beautiful and revolting moment, with some great writing, acting, direction and musics. And choices that will surely have an impact. On you.

The ending of Life is Strange 2 will definitely depend on the player. For those that developed an investment in the journey, most will enjoy the reward at their conclusion. Others may not get the payoff they expect, but that’s the beauty of a choice-driven game. It’s ultimately up to the player to reach the ending they chose for themselves.
A relatively engaging finale but one that suffers from all the problems of the series as a whole, with too little interactivity and a lethargic plot that struggles to get into gear.
It's quite obvious Dontnod Entertainment improved in storytelling with more mature topics and interesting characters that leave you wanting to know more

Life is Strange 2 has reached its end. With Sean and Daniel's adventure coming to a finish with multiple endings but not without having some profounds choices littered throughout. The episode is light in areas to explore and requires a lot of interaction with random items to get an understanding of what happened between episodes 4 and 5. But it's during the finale and how Sean raised Daniel that things come together and either end with a somber note or a massive explosion.
Life is Strange 2: Episode 5 - Wolves very sincerely tries to bring all choices to the general denominator, using system of morals which had to be inculcated to little Daniel, but even specially drawn endings do not cause due satisfaction. Either way, you'll get a boring ending for a narrative claiming originality and social conflict.
