While Sean and Daniel’s journey wasn’t perfect in some places, Life is Strange 2 managed to cap off a profound road trip with a unique, heartfelt ending, and another worthy entry in the Life is Strange series as a whole. While it was a calculated risk to depart from fan-favorite characters like the original’s Max and Chloe, Life is Strange 2 found not only a unique voice with the debut of Sean and Daniel, but an important one that feels all too relatable in the social issues and events that continue to shape the modern-day United States.
Saying goodbye to the Diaz brothers is as difficult as it was to leave Chloe and Max in the original Life Is Strange, which is a testament to the extraordinary strength of the game's character building. Though the story of the Diaz brothers arrives at some kind of ending, the larger implications of the story and its politically-charged themes raise more questions than they can possibly hope to answer, though to even ask them feels like an admirable feat.
Life is Strange 2 represents a sophistication of Dontnod's storytelling capabilities because it effectively adds up and weighs moral decisions to truly influence the narrative outcome. Every ending comes with some degree of complication -- that much was to be expected -- but it's satisfying because they're all befitting of the characters you molded. Whichever direction you took Sean and Daniel's lives, chances are you'll feel responsible for their fates. It's personal. Because it's personal, it's memorable. That's about the utmost positive quality for this style of story.
