Life is Strange Ep 3 Review (Xbox One)

  Life is Strange. A game that is pretty much managing to give Telltale Games a tun for their money. Dontnod are becoming masters of their mechanics now. After a rocky start in episode one, the studio has honed the choice and consequences part of the game so well.

  Episode three begins straight after the dramatic events of episode 2. I personally couldn't save the day in the second part of the series and therefore, everybody is real sombre. Relationships are still strained and you become ever so close to characters now that you really don't want another disaster. You become slightly paranoid about it as you go through the episode.

  There are a lot of choices to be made again, this time though you will enjoy scenes, as you see Max come in to her own a little more, especially, with Frank.

  No spoilers here but watch out for an ending that has the same emotional punch as PS3's Last of Us opening sequence. This is not done for shock value, it's a masterclass in the consequence mechanics. Bizarely, Telltalle need to pay attention to the youngster stealing their limelight.

Overall 8/10
Gameplay 9/10
Storyline 10/10
