Minecraft Story Mode Is Finally Here! + A Giveaway

Minecraft Story Mode Is Finally Here! + A Giveaway

Disclosure: I was provided with a copy of Minecraft Story Mode at no cost to facilitate this review, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own 🙂 

minecraft story mode review

If there is one thing my daughter would rather be doing more than anything else, it’s playing Minecraft! It amazes me all the cool things she can make and do with the game, and she is only 7! And being a video game loving family (no really, we have 5 different game consoles) I love playing Minecraft with her. So when we heard that they were coming out with a Minecraft Story Mode we were beyond thrilled! The one thing I always missed about Minecraft was the chance to have missions, and a story to follow along with. So now we have the best of both worlds. 


So when our copy of Minecraft Story Mode came in the mail, my daughter, although sick, was SO excited and had to check it out right away. And let me tell you, we were not disappointed!

In Minecraft: Story Mode, playing as either a male or female hero named ‘Jesse,’ 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 Architect; slayers of the Ender Dragon. While at EnderCon in hopes of meeting Gabriel the Warrior, Jesse’s 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.

I love that they stuck with the classic pixelated look of the classic Minecraft game, and it was so fun to watch my daughter get excited as she finished a new mission. Minecraft Story Mode is what is considered a “butterfly effect” type of game. This means that decisions you make during game play effect the outcome of the rest of the game. So you can play it again and have a different outcome! So cool right!? We give it 2 very enthusiastic thumbs up, and if you love Minecraft you are going to lobe this new game!

Minecraft Story Mode is available on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.

  7. We’re not a video game family so I’m not overly familiar with Minecraft except that every other kid in the universe (and quite a few adults) love it. Maybe I’ll give in and let my daughter try it sometime.

    I love how Minecraft makes my daughter think while playing.She doesn’t realize she is doing math and it has actually helped her with multiplying. I love the story mode concept because it allows them to have a purpose for the days when creativity isn’t going full blast.

  18. My little brother always wanted to play Minecraft. I didn’t know that there is a great giveaway like this.
