Minecraft: Story Mode - Season Two, Episode Two
Top Critic Average
With steadier pacing and fun narrative twists, Giant Consequences improves over the first episode in many ways
Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2 - Episode 2 "Giant Consequences" doesn't help lift this series out of the slump that began in the premier. This season looks to have better days ahead, but right now it's just not hitting the right spots.
Giant Consequences is a shorter episode, but a better one than the first with good pacing to the story and an interesting and amusing new baddie.
Overall, Giant Consequences is a worthwhile new chapter, and helps build a strong foundation for the rest of the season.
Episode 2 is a huge letdown compared to the solid beginnings of Episode 1.
Minecraft: Story Mode Season Two - Episode 2: Giant Consequences on the whole is a slight improvement on the opening episode with an intriguing plot twist and an exciting cliff-hanger ending that will entice you to jump into Episode 3. However, the plot choices still feel very lacklustre and unimportant and the characters themselves are still lacking any sort of development in personality in order to make them memorable. We'd suggest you hold off a little longer in the hope of an outstanding Episode 3 that'll do a U-turn on the season so far.
To my (pleasant) surprise, there were also a few key decision-making moments here that seemed to drastically alter the way the story played out. The episode featured a few surprising story twists, a difficult moral dilemma, and ended off with yet another cliffhanger and an ominous preview of things to come.
Anyway, Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2 ends on a high note with episode 5. It has a decent conclusion and one of the best boss fights I have ever played in a Telltale video game. Season 2 will make a perfect Christmas gift for anyone in the family that loves Minecraft and Telltale video games in general.
A very good episode with a lot of action and new characters

All in all it felt too much like a filler episode and I wonder if Telltale games should really stick to their selfimposed "5 episodes per game" model as this one would have been better off being packed together with episode three.
