Minecraft: Story Mode - Season Two, Episode Four
This penultimate episode doesn't reach the dizzying heights of the season's opening salvo, but it's a solid, satisfying outing.
Getting ready for the finale.

Once again, this episode starts with à great action sequence which was fun to play. There are more actions sequences farther in the episode, but it overall felt slower than the pace of the previous episodes, but was still enjoyable.
My recommendation? Wait for the full game to release, if you already own the previous installments, I suggest you get this episode for yourself since you’ve come too far off to stop now.
The entire Minecraft: Story Mode series has been a hit and miss one for me, but I can happily say that the trend over the last couple of episodes continues with Minecraft: Story Mode Season Two - Episode 4: Below the Bedrock. That trend? Continued improvement in all areas, from gameplay to story. I have my doubts that this series will ever rank among my favorite Telltale properties, but I have every confidence that Season Two can end on a very high note now.
I'm delighted that Beyond the Bedrock brought back that emotional arc the previous three episodes were missing. It seemed to fly by and that's the first time I've said that about an episode this season. Whilst there weren't a huge amount of big choices to be made – though one near the end was rather harrowing – and the story hasn't moved on significantly, the episode sets up the finale strongly with a neat post-credits scene. I hope that the final episode lives up to this standard, because this has been far and away the best of the season so far.
I was really disappointed by Below the Bedrock, it felt as though they weren't sure how to get to that final episode and it showed.
