    An adventure for all ages, and another solid hit from Telltale - just don't expect Minecraft's freedom. [Dec 2015, p.81]

    Older gamers who aren't Minecraft devotees may find Story Mode skewing a bit young, but that's quite all right. We've had plenty of mature offerings lately, and it's great to have something that's fit for families and kids.

    Minecraft: Story Mode – Episode 1: The Order of the Stone is a charming game full of vibrant environments and unique characters that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults.

    Telltale does something truly interesting in the Minecraft universe, though it's too short and way too easy to really leave a mark.

    Minecraft, as defined by Telltale Games, is a blank canvas for storytelling. The effort and enthusiasm of the study in this first episode is notorious, and the game succeeds in delivering a story that is engaging even if its addressed to people of all ages. Incredible fan service.
  6. So while I can’t really recommend Minecraft: Story Mode to adults casually acquainted with Mojang’s hit game (like me), or even those who generally tend to enjoy most Telltale adventures (also me), I suspect just about any tween with a passion for Minecraft will have a fine time (like my kid).

    It’s as if the shift from expanding on The Walking Dead‘s or Game of Thrones‘ darker mythologies to a whimsical, almost sentimental vibe, drained all the panache from the script. Scenes that could have been insightful or ironic or just plain hilarious instead comes off as derivative or dull.

    I will admit, that Minecraft has taken over the mainstream right now and you cant walk anywhere without hearing some mention of it, Inused toI will admit, that Minecraft has taken over the mainstream right now and you cant walk anywhere without hearing some mention of it, Inused to play Minecraft in the past but got tired of it a good 2 years ago, playing occasionally, I love telltales previous work on the walking dead and wolf among us, so seeing them choose Minecraft as their next episodic venture had me curious to what the end product would be

    Im happy to say that episode 1 of Minecraft story mode is a joy to play and has a lot of heart amd charm put into it, the story is simple but it keeps the player engaged and has a few twists and turns to keep it surprising, the choices made this time round actually seem much more meaningful this time around, Telltale must have taken nite of how no matter the choices you make,mthe end result will always be the same, just how you get there will be different to another players experience

    This game is nit a perfect 10, its a solid 8-9/10, I gave the game a high score to help boost its avergae metascore because from what I see here, its absurd and the negative reviews are coming from people who have never played the game.

    Some negatives I have are that the season pass this time is very expensive and some line delieveries seem strange

    Esse jogo esta incrivel! Para os amantes fanaticos de minecraft esse jogo é a escolha perfeita para uma boa diversão...Com dublagens otimas e animações perfeitas ao estilo minecraft de ser mas sem perder o famoso estilo da tell-tale.
    Bom o unico contra que consigo imaginar nesse jogo é que quem não gosta de Minecraft provavelmente não irá familiarizar muito com o jogo, oque provavelmente acarretará reviews desonesta.

    Mine-craft Story was a overall great game for the first episode. It takes a lot from telltales previous game the walking dead. It is veryMine-craft Story was a overall great game for the first episode. It takes a lot from telltales previous game the walking dead. It is very largely based on decision which is two be expected from a telltale game but, which very much surprised me was how much the choices impacted the game-play, even more than the walking dead. i know i keep comparing it to the walking dead but it really surprised me.

    Now getting to the review, Game play wise it is more like watching a movie where you have to press buttons every 10 minuets, but it is a really good story. Its you have to interact less and less as the story goes on until you pretty much are just watching the game but overall it is really well put together and very interesting and leaves the player waiting for the next episode. One more thing to add just in case you were wondering, the one episode is longer than you think.
