...Episode 3 provides some drastically large wrinkles in Max’s powers and that, while showing a monumentally game-changing new power in her arsenal, also provides a very clear picture that some moments are simply irreversible in an ending even more tense and devastating than the last. Life is Strange has always been about showing us the collisions between the past and the present, and with an ending set to turn the series on its head, there’s no way of knowing just where to look back.

Giving a final rating for Episode 3 is a bit difficult. Honestly, the game started to slog at various points. I hated every single puzzle it threw my way, and couldn’t stand how I had to brute force my way through most of it. But the story was still so good and the ending was superb.

This episode poses interesting philosophical dilemmas instead: How far is too far? What is the cost of saving a life? Should anyone be allowed to have this power at all? The people at the center of this story are so engaging that I’m starting to outright ignore awkward dialogue, because the emotional gravity of its storytelling is so much stronger than the irregular out-of-place line or questionable dialogue delivery.
