    The first season of Minecraft: Story Mode is a good opener of what is to come. Despite a somewhat passive gameplay and some fluidity breaks, this is a pleasant and alluring experience that will appeal to players beyond the Minecraft fan base, with extra points going for the game's excellent voice work.

    To enjoy this game you’ll need to understand going in that the story is based on Minecraft, but you will not experience any of its free building or open sandbox trademarks. If we simply judge the game on its entertainment value then I can say I had a great time. The story is great, the acting is top notch and Telltale did a great job of capturing the spirit of Minecraft. If you're a fan of the Minecraft universe and enjoy kids movies with humour to satisfy adults then you will enjoy this—what I will continue to call an interactive movie.

    In short, Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure is a worthwhile ride, though it is a bit inconsistent in terms of the quality of the episodes. If you’re a fan of Minecraft, or just want to try out something that feels halfway between a game and a Netflix show, this is a great game to jump on. Though you likely won’t be replaying it very much, there’s hours of content on offer here the first time through and it certainly justifies the price of admission.

    Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure is the first adventure game from Telltale to come to the Switch. It is the ultimate package of the narrative-driven take on the famous block-building franchise. With an enjoyable D&D-like story, it is an enjoyable experience, in which your choices seems to matter - at least as long as you allow yourself to play along with the magician trick.

    If it was not for the amusing script, well realised Minecraft setting, likeable characters, and moderately engaging storyline(s), then this would have been an unmitigated disaster as Telltale continues to take the point-and-click genre in a direction that no point-and-click fan wants, removing all the enjoyable elements from the classics and awkwardly wedging in action elements instead. Minecraft: Story Mode - The Complete Adventure, thankfully, has enough engaging story content to keep gamers satisfied, some fantastic production values on the voice acting front, and heaps of content packed in thanks to all eight episodes being included. Hopes are high for Season Two to improve upon the shortcomings here.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. So,Minecraft...What can i say? Everyone knows this succesful piece of dirt block! But anyways,we're not here to talk about Minecraft. On another note,we're here to talk about Minecraft Story Mode,another way for Telltale to push their boundaries forward. I'm going to recap everything,so spoilers ahehad. We are off to a rocky start with Episode 1 - The Order Of The Stone,where we have a giant introduction to all the charachters in the game,played by a handsome bunch of people,like Patton Oswalt (Agents Of SHIELD),Ashley Johnson (The Last Of Us) etc,if not also the start to this perilous adventure. The start is pretty good,we have no boring moments,the action is well-crafted and the dialogue is done pretty well. Then it's on Episode 2 - Assembly Required where things go off-hills. After choosing,you'll go with Axel at BoomTown,or with Olivia on Redstonia,to reassemble the Order Of The Stone. What makes it kinda boring is the fact that it's easy all-around. No hard puzzles,no exciting action sequences...Nothing. Oh,it's also short in terms of runtime:32 minutes if i remember correctly. In Episode 3 -The Last Place You Look,things get interesting. After having not-stopped Ivor,it's a journey to The End to find Soren,the last member of The Order. And from here,you can clearly see that they're taking the source material that makes Minecraft awesome. Then,the original adventure comes to an end with Episode 4 - A Block And A Hard Place. The Witherstorm,after a fake death,gets duplicated in 3 monstrosities,is still in search of the amulet,so the gang doesn't know what to do. But after they find Ivor,with a solution on his hands,it's yet again,another journey for our friends to find this Enchantement Book. From Episode 3 on out,you'll basicaly have journies all around,but Episode 4 doesn't fail to be a tricky episode,with tons of puzzles and an emotional ending. Episode 5 - Order Up is the start of a series of new adventures for Jesse,Petra,Lukas and Ivor. Basically Episode 5 is The LEGO Movie,where there's the message that you can't build anything on Sky City until the end,where everyone's on the ground (safe and sound) and everyone can do anything they want to. It's up to Jesse to decide if the people of Sky City are free to build everything they want or not. Then,we're off to Episode 6 - A Portal To Mystery (AKA the giant paycheck for Youtubers like DanTDM,StampyCat,CaptainSparklez etc.) . The story is a giant 'What if Haunted Mansion was a Mystery movie?',since the group enters in this mysterious dimension where we have a 'Haunted Mansion'-like house with a guy called The White Pumpkin,who's haunting this mansion. Nothing new,bad,or even interesting at all. We are close to the end with Episode 7 - Access Denied,where our group of heroes is still searching the way home,and they enter in this 'Terminator 2'-like dimension,where we have a computer (called PAMA) dominating all-over the village. Just like Episode 6,you know the drill. Episode 8 - A Journey's End is a satisfying,if not also rewarding ending to this game,with our group having to deal with a giant 'server' (sort of) to get back home. Not only does it take games like Spleef so well,but it also makes you truly feel the anger for the enemies,if not also having a well-done story. In a whole,it's a true enjoyment for Minecraft fans,if not also gamers everywhere. The controls in the game are impressive. Sure,it is an interactive movie,but watching this 'transition' of buttons and touch screen makes the game a lot easier to play. There's nothing to say about the graphics,since it's Minecraft,and everything has to look blocky (except the books...). In the end,Minecraft Story Mode The Complete Adventure is able to please every Nintendo Switch gamer,with innovative comands,a story that's here and there,and the blocky fun that Minecraft always has Expand

Sin lugar a dudas están hechas para niños pero no estoy seguro si el género es muy atractivo para ellos.
    La historia es atractiva al principio, pero en un punto no llega a ser memorable. Los personajes no se vuelven icónicos, ni tienen una evolución interesante, pero al menos es una buena introducción al universo de Minecraft para quien desconoce la saga.
    A mi gusto la mejor forma de jugar los juegos de Telltale Games es en modo portátil de la Switch, hasta se puede decir que es la mejor forma de jugarlos.

    It's a cute game, and it's not like I was expecting a ton from this game in the first place, but it really just failed to impress me at all.It's a cute game, and it's not like I was expecting a ton from this game in the first place, but it really just failed to impress me at all. The story is bland and uninteresting, and minecraft references are randomly thrown in as an attempt to appease fans of the original game but they end up failing to significantly enhance the story in any real way. The characters aren't particularly compelling, the jokes mostly fall flat, and it's just overall not a fun experience to play through. Expand

The fact that they took Minecraft a game has no story the way the creator intended too and give it one is simply stupid. Telltale has this idea that if they keep making games like these they will continue to be successful. Its cool they brought in Patton Oswalt to voice the protagonist. We as the players we want to experience new and unique things. But for Telltale to continue releasing these type of games with a different license is just the biggest slap in the face to us the Audience Expand
