Minecraft: Story Mode - Season One Reviews

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.

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 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.
