Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2 - Episode 5 doesn't stick the landing, but it also doesn't fall totally on its face. It's a suitable conclusion to the season, but if you haven't bought in yet, there's not much reason to now.

The season ends with an action-packed episode that neatly ties up the core themes running through the season. It is lacking in the humour of some of the previous episodes and the violence towards the end feels a little out of place.

Above and Beyond is a rather disappointing end to a rather lacklustre second season for Minecraft: Story Mode. The season's plot is forgettable, the pacing is slow throughout, and the same environments are used repeatedly. Although the final boss fight is enjoyable, the ending is surprisingly anticlimactic. Unless you were a huge fan of Jesse's first outing, you won't be missing much by skipping this season.

"Episode 5 - Above and Beyond" is an appropriate end to another good Telltale season.
