The end of this episode is a killer cliffhanger, one that has been turning over in my brain since I finished. I care about these characters enough to want the happy ending for them. I want to know what’s going to happen to Max and Chloe; I want to find Rachel Amber; I want to figure out what’s up with all the batshit crazy climate changes. "Chaos Theory" is the lowest point of Life is Strange yet — and still, it’s the first game I want to recommend to everyone I know right now.
...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.
