A Portal to Mystery is the first of three new Story Mode episodes. The political chaos of Sky City is behind them, but Jesse and crew may be leaping out of the frying (and possibly flying) pan and into the fire. Fresh perils await them in an unfamiliar land, as does the sinister figure known as The Host. What can this pumpkin-headed hostelier have in mind for his new guests? Who are the strangers invited to attend The Host’s mansion party?! Can anyone be trusted?!! Who will survive?!!! Will Owen tell me off for using excessive punctuation?!!!! Who knows?!!!!!

Problems from past episodes still haunt this one, but the murder mystery keeps you guessing and the action scenes are exciting

Only two episodes remain for Telltale’s extended first season. If you’re still playing, you’ve most likely grown attached to the members of The Order of the Stone. These stand-alone stories work; I still laugh at Ivor’s fiendish enthusiasm or Petra’s deadpan humor. I’m hoping the title of Episode 7, Access Denied, means that the episode will be a science fiction-themed tale. And maybe, just maybe, the final episode will be a love story. Whatever Telltale Games has in store, I’m on board.

I’m looking forward to seeing how Telltale can shift gears in the next two episodes, as they look to find new and interesting worlds and situations to explore.

A Portal to Mystery is a disappointing episode. While the story itself is fun, there is too much emphasis on the YouTube personalities that only fans of them will appreciate.
