Thank you Telltale Games for sending us a review code for the series!

Like all Telltale adventure games, the choices you make will have consequences and can change the game significantly. When first starting your game, you’ll have the option of signing into Telltale’s servers and enabling cloud saves. If you are playing on the same platform as season one, you can import your choices and save file into season two.

Most of the same cast returns in this adventure and some new characters are added as well. After all of the excitement from the previous season, Jesse has settled down in Beacon Town which is preparing for its annual Founding Day celebration. Radar is a nervous but helpful guy who can assist with managing the town in your absence as Petra is waiting for you and your friends to join her in an adventure. Unfortunately, your other friends have Founding Day preparations to make and decline joining this latest journey.

Minecraft Story Mode: Season Two
Highlights:

Strong Points: Good characters and storytelling; great voice acting; lots of interesting choices you can compare against after the credits
Weak Points: Lots of quicktime events; easy puzzles; some confusing fighting sequences
Moral Warnings: You’ll be fighting against some zombies and skeletons

On your way to meet Petra, you’ll get to explore the town and meet its residents. There’s an opportunity to construct a statue for someone if you desire to do so. A couple of the town’s inhabitants include popular Minecraft/Youtube personalities like StacyPlays and Stampy Cat.

Once you meet Petra she’ll be disappointed that you’re the only one to arrive. It’s up to you to cheer her up or to tell her to get over it. The adventure she has in mind is rather secretive and involves returning someone’s lost pet. When that journey is nearly completed, you stumble upon a gauntlet that’s whispering Jesse’s name. Touching the gauntlet gets it stuck to Jesse’s hand and now they must find out its origin and how to remove it. Sealing up the bottomless abyss around it is probably a good idea too.

Like the previous games there are many enemies like spiders, zombies, and skeletons that will need to be dodged via quick time events and button presses. There are some puzzles to solve, but those were pretty easy. The only time I had to look for online assistance was finding a hint on how to kill the guardian statue. In case you’re curious you have to climb onto it from behind when it’s kneeling and stab it in its head. Needless to say, there is some fantasy violence in this series.

Minecraft Story Mode: Season Two
Score Breakdown:
Higher is better
(10/10 is perfect)

Game Score - 90%
Gameplay - 16/20
Graphics - 10/10
Sound - 9/10
Stability - 5/5
Controls - 5/5

Morality Score - 87%
Violence - 6.5/10
Language - 10/10
Sexual Content - 10/10
Occult/Supernatural - 7/10
Cultural/Moral/Ethical - 10/10

I was glad to find that there was no language in this entry. You have the option of selecting a name for the bottomless abyss and I chose the name “Heckmouth”. There are many choices to make throughout this episode and I was glad that there were options for being truthful and forgiving. (Yes, I chose them)

True to the Minecraft style, the characters and environment look similar to the story-less game it’s based off of. The voice acting and sound effects are top notch too.

So far I’m enjoying this new season and I look forward to the next episodes. Hopefully the rest of them are as kid friendly as this one. There will be five episodes which are broken down into six chapters apiece. You’ll earn a Steam achievement for each completed chapter and after the credits roll, you can compare your choices with everyone else’s. I was surprised to see that I made some unpopular decisions. I’m curious on how that will impact the rest of the second season for me.

About Us:

Christ Centered Gamer looks at video games from two view points. We analyze games on a secular level which will break down a game based on its graphics, sound, stability and overall gaming experience. If you’re concerned about the family friendliness of a game, we have a separate moral score which looks at violence, language, sexual content, occult references and other ethical issues.
