Video Review


Not much has changed between this episode and the previous two, in terms of video quality. I have noticed a more distinct watercolor effect, especially with nature things in the backgrounds of the environments, not unlike the pastel motif of Telltale’s 'Game of Thrones' series. While not altogether unwelcome, some of the effects don’t work very well, resembling the static props on the set of a play.

Audio Review


The voice acting and music are still coming together well, with the indie vibe from the first episode still maintaining a presence. Few new characters are being introduced at this point, but the acting from the regular cast remains strong, even if the script struggles at times to remain interesting.

Final Thoughts

'Chaos Theory' is the best episode so far in the 'Life is Strange' series, easily outpacing 'Out of Time' in narrative quality. The cliffhanger at the end makes me very excited for the next episode. So long as it continues to take risks, there is a lot of potential for the remaining episodes.
