Life is Strange: Episode Four Review


Last time in our Life is Strange review we revealed how a new ability came into play, allowing Max to enter into a photograph and change the past. This has big implications at the start of this latest episode, although there's a lot more intense goings on as the episode progresses.

With the story coming to a conclusion, we finally begin to understand some of the strange goings on, although things don't entirely play out to plan for our heroes as they go through more in one night than any teenager should have to go through in their entire lives.



As always there is a lot of tough decisions to be made and while you may have to think long and hard about the implications, hopefully you'll manage to do the right thing and keep everyone safe.

In this episode there are many different locations to visit as Max and Chloe wrap up the final clues in order to find out the whereabouts of Rachel. This will see you sneaking into Nathan's dorm, visiting a drug dealer and solving some clues, which then lead Max and Chloe to all manner of new and strange places, although that doesn't mean that they have all the facts, as much as they'd like to think they do.

As in the last episode there is a rather large twist near the end, which I like to think I saw coming, however nothing is ever quite as simple as it seems and with the earth spawning two moons ahead of the disco at the Vortex Club and the fact that whales are lying all over the beach, the chances are that some sort of apocalypse may happen before Max and Chloe fully solve the mystery of their missing friend Rachel.



With the story coming to an end, after a slow start, Episode Four really steps up the intensity, making for some pretty heart in mouth moments which will have you making quick and important decisions. The rewind powers still come into effect quite a few times within the this episode, however Max can't always count on her powers, as you will soon find out.

for number 1, take a picture of chloe when she's at her computer after max realises she's back in her correct time line. (you know when max hugs from behind and goes to sit on the bed, get up from the bed and you'll be able to take a picture of chloe at her computer.) for ten, it's in the vortex club party, on the right of the entrance, if you look up you'll notice the windows and the two moons outside. you need to take a photo of that

Just got them - thanks, dunno how i missed the first one - I always look at the 'hints' in the menu (siolettes) before playing the game but I thought it was something to do with the window when she is in bed haha! and the last one ws a pain to line up! I thought it was the 2 moons but I thought I missed my chance once I entered the club. Thanks!
