Minecraft Story Mode 

 

I am so thankful that Family Friendly Gaming was provided a retail version of Minecraft Story Mode on the Playstation 4. The disc contains the Season Pass. Which means it comes with episode one on the disc, and then episodes two through five have to be downloaded to the system. I have played through episodes one and two thus far. As I write this review episode three and on have not been released.

If you are expecting a normal Minecraft kind of a game you are going to be very disappointed in Minecraft Story Mode. This game is more of an interactive story. If you have played games from TellTale Games before then you know the interactive story kinds of games they publish. There is lots of talking with players interacting at certain points. We can move in certain directions at certain times, we can also press certain buttons to make certain interactions happen - like in battles.

There are numerous conversations in Minecraft Story Mode. There are also plenty of choices. Players can decide to answer questions in certain ways. This would be the biggest reason to replay an episode - to make different choices and see slightly different conversations. This branching story possibility is really neat to see in a modern day home console video game.

Fighting in Minecraft Story Mode can be a bit clunky and slow. Do not expect Minecraft like fighting in Minecraft Story Mode. Thankfully the fighting scenes were not that often. The same goes for the bad language in Minecraft Story Mode. I caught a few words here and there while playing Minecraft Story Mode. Monsters and characters can have things like arrows sticking out of their bodies.

The voice acting is really good in Minecraft Story Mode. The storyline is interesting and engaging. I am very curious to see where this story goes from the end of episode two. The depth of the story is one of the best parts of Minecraft Story Mode. The short episodes is one of the worst parts. Episode two was over a gig to download. So I expect the full and final game will be large.

I was a major Minecraft fanboy until Microsoft bought off Mojang. I still like it from time to time. My younger brother still plays the iOS version of Minecraft. We were once deep into the lore and stories related to Minecraft. Minecraft Story Mode feels like an interactive Youtube video. You know the cool ones that fans used to make before Microsoft ruined it? Minecraft Story Mode reminds me of those videos. Just fleshed out a lot more.
