Episode 3 is viewed from the perspective of the movie that Akira is recording. When the game ends, the screen zooms out from Akira's computer. Episode 2 felt closer to the manga, since they went with more 'normal' action sequences. The action scenes in Episode 3 were very much exaggerated in comparison - the addition of the blood and the fight scene on the roof pushes the episode to be almost a caricature of the manga chapters that it was based on. I thought it was an interesting effect.
Thank you for the info, now it all makes sense.
