Minecraft: Story Mode - Season Two, Episode Three
Top Critic Average
With forgettable sequences through most of the episode, Jailhouse Block is the weakest episode of the season
A tightly controlled and intriguing story mix with some of the best action sequences of the season to create a real turning point for the series. If Telltale can keep it up we're in for a real treat by the end of Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2.
Jailhouse Block is an action packed episode with some great humour and exciting set-pieces.
Episode 3 is the best episode yet in this new series.
Jailhouse Block is a big step in the right direction for Minecraft: Story Mode Season Two and is far better than the first two episodes with a really well-paced and fast flowing plot. The more impactful decisions and a humorous appearance from a well-known artist keep your attention from start to finish – although that's not saying much with a running time shorter than an hour.
Minecraft Story Mode Season Two started out on a high note for me, but as I wrap up Episode 3, Jailhouse Block, I'm to the point where the only notes worth appreciating are the musical ones.
Minecraft: Story Mode season 2 is shaping up to be a really strong adventure. Aside from a few painful combat sections that dragged on too long this episode, the story is starting to get serious now, and I'm certainly looking forward to see where the last two episodes take us.
Episode 3 deepens the story with new characters, trying to explain who is the Admin, but on the other hand there's no real action: the element we appreciated in the previous chapter.

The Episodes start to feel shorter and shorter each time, but at least this one took us to an interesting location and gave us interesting choices to make.
Minecraft: Story Mode Season Two - Episode 3: Jailhouse Block throws the gang into its mid-season low point, as the group embark on a prison-breakout with the help of the mysterious inmate, Prisoner X. While Prisoner X adds a great new complexity to the overall adventure, and drops important exposition, she is a welcome addition to the gang. Unfortunately, most of the good stuff does not occur until beyond the midpoint of this episode, as the beginning stages suffer due to a "warden" and prison "hierarchy" that makes no sense.
