Episode 2 has dropped of Life is Strange: Before the Storm and just like the previous instalments it continuously and creatively likes to remind us how life can sometimes suck, especially wrapped up in the skin of a pubescent teen.

‘Episode 2: Brave New World’ kicks off right off after the fiery conclusion of the last, with Chloe and possible life love Rachel dealing with the consequences of their last episode. Once again you must quick time and choose wisely how you are going to twist and turn conversations in your own favour, and make decisions that could have ramifications in the future.

For a full run down of visuals, gameplay, soundtrack etc, follow the link to my article of episode one, however this one oozes the brilliant, brooding soundtrack that compliments each scene, tears at your emotions as some acts are far too realistic circumstances and continues to be a hip, indie wonderland. 

Episode 2 is definitely a heartfelt rollercoaster ride that any fan of the series must play.
