    Directors Raoul Barbet and Michel Koch have gone the extra mile to create better realized characters, a more believable setting, and continue to tackle sensitive topics - elements that once again separate Life Is Strange from other games in this genre. Roads delivers a strong first impression and bringing the DONTNOD band back together for another run has gone a long way to make this episode feel as special as the first season. Life Is Strange is back and it’s off to a great start.

    An even stronger and thought-provoking experience than the first game, with a brilliant soundtrack and improved graphics, while Dontnod reaffirms their storytelling ability. A must have for any narrative adventure lover and a great beginning for this new episodic season in the series.

    Life is Strange 2 features a story that packs real emotional weight, and one that surprisingly deals with real-world issues in a way that feels like a milestone achievement in interactive storytelling. But, by that same token it is indeed more of an interactive piece of cinema than traditional game. Here’s hoping that the next few episodes provide real tangible ways to interact with the world, from puzzles, to traversal, to even some form of action.

    All in all, Roads is a good entry into the Life is Strange 2 series. It brings back the things fans love about the series and builds an entirely new story around this. Some things could be done better, but these are only small points of critique.

    Though its social criticisms feel broad and rather clumsy so far, its core story of brotherhood and fraternity between two believable characters is already enormously touching.

    Unfortunately the episode is let down by the less than subtle way it deals with delicate subjects like racism, as well as gameplay that means this episode feels like quite a slow start to the story. There are several hints throughout the episode to suggest the gameplay may be spiced up in the future, and it may need it if players are going to make it through to the end of the story.

    Life is Strange 2: Episode 1 forgets what made the franchise great and proposes a slow and clumsy introduction. Loaded with a strong political message the game forgets to work on its main plot.

    Amazing game so far! Can't wait for the rest of the episodes! The narrative, graphics, and overall gameplay are much improved from theAmazing game so far! Can't wait for the rest of the episodes! The narrative, graphics, and overall gameplay are much improved from the previous games. I definitely loved the previous ones as well but I'm really liking Sean and Daniel's story more than Max's story from the first. It's a lot deeper and more emotional for me, very touching. There's a lot of tough choices and decisions to be made though throughout the episode. It's a great game for any fan of the Life Is Strange series! Expand

    the pointless non-centered camera makes it unplayable for me. why not using a normal center camera? why? why? why?
