Life is Strange Before the Storm is everything that a prequel should be. It takes nothing away from the original game yet what they have added makes that game even better. If you have played Life is Strange this is a must play. If you haven’t we recommend playing it before jumping into Before the Storm. While you can play and enjoy the game on its own merits, you’ll appreciate it even more this way. Deck Nine has given us a beautiful game and we cannot wait to see what they create next.
Awake shows you a broken Chloe - someone at her lowest. Everyone hits those trying times in their lives, and what Awake does best is illustrate how much another person can make a difference in those situations. The emotional pull is strong, and the story's strength is its relatability. This first episode has me intrigued at how Chloe and Rachel Amber will make it through their distress, and it also has me rooting for them.
Life is Strange: Before the Storm – Episode 1: Awake starts the prequel series off strong with a narrative that makes you care about Chloe in an all-new way. You see the beginnings of the person that we saw in the first game and who she winds up being makes a lot more sense when you see things in the context provided here.
