Minecraft: Story Mode – A Telltale Games Series Giveaway #CBHolidayGiftReview
Both my children love Minecraft and play it often. When I heard about Minecraft: Story Mode, I though this would be excellent for my children to check out.
Minecraft: Story Mode is an all-new narrative-driven, episodic game series, developed by Telltale Games in collaboration with Mojan and members of the Minecraft community. Set in the world of Minecraft,the game series introduces new characters and familiar themes, but is an entirely original Minecraft experience inspired by the game that continues to inspire a generation.
In this five part episodic series, you’ll embark on a perilous adventure across the Overworld, through the Nether, to the End and beyond. You and your friends revere the legendary Order of the Stone: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and the Architect; slayers of the Ender Dragon. While at the EnderCon in hopes of meeting Gabriel the Warrior, you and your friends discover that something is wrong… something dreadful. Terror is unleashed and you must set out on a quest to find The Order of the Stone if you are to save your world from oblivion.
We received Minecraft: Story Mode for Xbox 360. As soon a my son saw it he was in his glory!
Spencer started playing it and was trying to figure out some of the quests. I liked watching him try to work through the quests that he had to get through to go on to the next area. There was one he was stuck on and worked on it for a bit. Then he said wait a minute I think I know what’s going on. Then he we figured it out. I love games like this because it isn’t about just playing but actually thinking about what you are doing and how to solve a problem.
The way you get to decide what you say to people or make the story by decisions you make, it reminds me of a “Choose Your Own Adventure” books when I was a child. The same affect where your actions make your story.
Both Spencer and Hayley enjoyed this video game. This isn’t just great for tweens but also teens to enjoy.
