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.
The chapter ends with a huge revelation linked to Max’s powers that is insanely cool. Without spoiling anything I would say the episode title is apt. It also makes waiting two months for the next installment unbearable. Life Is Strange has always had a nice down-to-earth quality for a video game. Sure, the time travel gimmick is just that, but Max and the rest of the occupants of Arcadia Bay still keep me invested. And only two episodes remain.
It feels a lot more like a Mulligan power than a universe-changing gift of omniscience, and that’s unfortunate because Dontnod has already proven that it knows how to use this mechanic in cool ways. And in a few brilliant segments in this chapter, it still does, but other than that, it’s pretty flat. ...Chaos Theory can’t escape the shadow of its superior predecessor, but that’s not to say it’s a bad experience.
