What Gamespot Users have to say about Life is Strange 2

  • Rating:9

    A memorable story but little gameplay

    Life is Strange is one of my favorite games of all time. Dontnod are masterminds at storytelling and character development. They can somehow create a world that you can either relate and get sucked into or both, and yet... Read Full Review

    Overshadowed by its predecessor

    I highly anticipated LiS 2 after finishing the first game. After finishing LiS 2, all I can say is that it's underwhelming. The first game is definitely a much grander, atmospheric, emotional work of art. LiS 2 had some ... Read Full Review

    The shortest and weakest episode to date

    Going into episode 4, I knew that it needed to set up the final episode and it in a big way. The previous episode brought the story to a bit of a halt so I expected episode 4 to right the ship and fast track the story a ... Read Full Review

    Solid character building but painfully slow

    I think what kind of separates this one apart from previous episodes is that there is a lot of character building in this one. Not just in the main characters but in the side characters as well. It helps form a connectio... Read Full Review

    Character growth continues

    This episode is the best so far, in my opinion. The Diaz brothers spend a good portion of the episode alone in this cabin in the woods. Supplies are low, Daniel is growing restless and Sean has to continue being the adul... Read Full Review

    Picking up where we left off

    The new season of Life is Strange 2 follows the Diaz brothers on the run after a tragic event happens right in front of their home. I'll admit at first that I was disappointed Max and Chloe weren't returning but the Diaz... Read Full Review

    Stakes Have Never Been So High

    This episode starts with (what should be) both a jarring flashback and time-jump; however both of them end up making sense and help to drop you, rather comfortably, right in the action of a tent city in Humboldt, Califor... Read Full Review

    I knew I should've left the computer off

    The journey countinues--and takes on a much more joyful note (at least for the moment) as DONTNOD introduces the Diaz's extended family and ties in the Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit.Without spoiling too much, Sean... Read Full Review

    01 - Roads

    After the interesting story, which was offered in LiS and semi-interesting story in BtS, I really thought that this is going to be at least on the same level as its predecessors, but, boy, was I wrong.First off all, thi... Read Full Review

    The Birth of Another Classic

    Having played the original Life Is Strange (PC) in its entirety (as the episodes were being released--no Season Pass), and its more-than-worthy prequel, Before The Storm, it was really foolish for me to doubt that the se... Read Full Review
