William Kirk at GameCloud Australia writes: "As a stand alone episode, I’d say Chaos Theory is maybe a little too black and white in choices it offers, but it also stands strong as the bridge for the main story arc. I’m liking how distinct each episode is so far, and this one is no exception. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed high school life, and how you can use or abuse your powers in that environment. However, it’s good that episode 3 takes you away from that entirely, placing you in the everyday life of Chloe; who you’ll learn a lot more about in the process. I think the big lesson to take away from this episode is that people aren’t always who they appear to be on the surface. I really like that Life is Strange isn’t afraid to explore new directions, and that’s where this instalment succeeds most. Prepare yourself for big changes, because this ride is about to get crazy!"
