Critic Reviews for Minecraft: Story Mode - Season One

If you have a Minecraft fan in the house this could well be on their Christmas list.

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.

The first season of Minecraft: Story Mode is simple but interesting. Fans of Minecraft will be captivated and even those not into the series will like it. While the gameplay feels a bit passive and there are occasional breaks in the fluidity of the game, the experience is quite pleasant and the excellent performance of the voice actors adds an additional dimension to its qualities.

The simplicity of controls and navigation in Minecraft would suggest that it is geared more towards children but with iconic 80s film references and dry humor it can be fun for adults too. If you are looking for a game full of puzzles and where your choices will make a dramatic impact to the outcome of the game, then this isn't for you. But if you like the idea of a playable television game – you have come to the right place. The humour for the older generation and the story and gameplay for the smaller ones makes this a great one to play with your children, nieces and nephews too.

Minecraft: Story Mode - The Complete Adventure offers a couple of thrills and some likable characters, lost in the midst of subpar gameplay and an uninvolving story. A missed opportunity to create a great new Minecraft spinoff experience.

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".

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.

There's a lot wrong with Minecraft: Story Mode. From its technical issues to its plot to its business model, it really has a lot going against it. Yet, despite all that, it still had its memorable moments. As the writing improved, things became more engaging. As the characters established themselves, they became more likeable (and detestable, for some). Hell, one moment even came close to generating tears: an achievement on its own for a game that feels like a Saturday morning cartoon. There's lots of coal here, no doubt about it. In some ways, though, that makes the diamonds shine all the brighter.
