Minecraft : Story Mode By Telltale Games Episode 4 Review

Telltale Games released Episode 4 "A Block And A Hard Place" on December 22, 2015. My plot review will have some spoilers so if you don't want to know what happened please skip that part.

If you missed my other reviews you can click these links for Episode 1Episode 2 and Episode 3.


Episode 4 begins with your party traveling on horses. As the credits roll for the game you are shown the different terrain you are traveling through while giving you the option to ask are we there yet repeatedly. Eventually you make it to the Far Lands where Ivor has a hidden laboratory. Inside you go to a room Ivor setup with all the treasures that The Order Of The Stone received during their adventures. After talking to Soren you discover that The Order made it all up and used a command block to stop the Ender Dragon.

Your character then creates a enchanted diamond weapon to use to destroy the Wither Storm once and for all. When you find the Wither Storm Soren chickens out and runs away leaving you to deal with it. You get the Endermen to distract the Wither Storm allowing you time to get inside it. You are given a few options on how to get inside and I choose rocket minecraft because that's just cool I safely made it inside where the command block is and was able to destroy it with some help. I won't give away the ending except to say it made my daughter cry.


This Episode was a great finish to Minecraft Story Mode. The length of the Episode was around the same as Episode 4 so it wasn't too short. Again I had no bugs in my play through which is good. The only issue I had was when you made a choice the game would pause before loading the next part. It didn't effect the game play at all and compared to some of the bugs I experienced I'll take load times over in game bugs.

I'm not sure how Telltale is going to do the next Episode. As far as I know the Season Pass is for Episodes up to 5. I don't know if they are going to have a mini adventure for Episode 5 or start a new one. The ending of Episode 4 was definitely an ending for the story. Episode 5 is suppose to come out very soon so I guess we will have to wait to find out.

Episode 4 was a great adventure and I give it an 8 out of 10.
