Life is Strange has plenty of potential left, and Dontnod is making choices matter. However, characters and circumstances need be more natural and plausible for me to buy into this world. So much is too overblown. Life is Strange is at its best when it dials it down and just focuses on the simple things, like coping through the hard times or repairing a broken friendship. These are the moments that keep me invested.

Dontnod has done well so far to not telegraph a clear-cut route to achieving a desirable outcome. While Out of Time has a tendency to meander, it hits hard in its critical moments. This episode succeeds in that it's adept at creating sincere concern for most of the inhabitants of Life is Strange. That depth is appreciated, but Out of Time felt like a giant step to the side, as we aren't much further along than we were at the end of episode one.

It’s difficult to talk about a single episode of a game. What I was wondering was answered in episode two, and was well done enough and has me wanting to see what will happen in the next episode. The payoff is there and feels good, and while there are some hiccups here and there as far as pacing goes, episode two made it feel more like a story that is going somewhere rather than a mechanic with some set pieces and throwaway story wrapped around it.
