Oh man.  This way WAY better than I was anticipating when I downloaded it for my kids the other day!  My 7 yr old picked the boy Jessie for her first play through all the way.
We made a Zombie in a building competition, battled a giant Wither boss that is out of control, rode an insane ride through the nether, built a great tree house, and found the Temple for the Order of the Stone! All while keeping our group and our little piggy Reuban by our side!mc2

This game is rated 10+ but I found my 7 year old was able to play the game with no issues. As long as the child is able to read, this game is perfect for them! If you have beginner or slow reader you may have to give them a hand when choosing what to say. I found the timer on responding is a little quick with my slower readers, making the choices hard.


I have to admit I was more than a little on the edge of my seat while playing this game! Maybe I need to get out more, but we had a blast playing through episode one and are counting the days to the release of episode 2!! We chose to head to Ellegard in the next episode and can’t wait for the journey to continue!


Have you played this awesome story mode yet? What did you think? We would love to hear your thoughts.
