In case you missed it, make sure to check out our review of the first episode. Here’s a snippet of what I had to say:
I’m also slightly cautious about what looked to be supernatural elements during the ending sequence of Before the Storm’s first episode. I was enjoying how the prequel was coming from a toned-down place compared to the time-traveling antics of the original, so that left me a bit concerned going forward. It’s far too early to judge, though. I just hope that the focus stays on the characters themselves and not a greater struggle.
Despite feeling hesitant going into Before the Storm, Deck Nine Games’ rendition of Arcadia Bay quickly reminded me of why I loved the series and its characters in the first place. Any fears of this being a cash-in on a beloved game melted away, and I was able to fully enjoy Awake without any second thoughts. I’m excited to see where Chloe and Rachel’s story goes from here, even if I already know how tragic it ultimately ends.
