Top 10 Problems With Minecraft Story Mode

A list of the Top 10 problems with Minecraft Story Mode. Just so you know this is based on my opinion.

The Top Ten

1 The game isn't finished

All you can play is Chapter 1, and why are they asking $25 for this game when all of the chapters aren't released yet. That is at least $5 per chapter. - BadBoiDrummer

For every chapter it costs more than the game Minecraft itself - trender2004

You have to do this buy each episode

Why did they only make the first one free?! MAKE THE WHOLE THING FREE! I can’t buy the other episodes!

2 It doesn't feel like a minecraft game

It has the graphical feel of Minecraft. I would've expect this to be a first person perspective as of real Minecraft, but is simply isn't. - BadBoiDrummer

Its more like beyond 2 souls, Mostly choices with the not so likely roam

First person is interesting but honestly it'd be the same dang thing as the original game.

3 The controls are completely broken

When it comes to the quick time event that involves pressing the arrow keys in the right direction, it wouldn't read it correctly. Also they over complicate the controls as simple as pressing one button. When it involves something like building a structure you have to mash the button as many times as you can. - BadBoiDrummer

Episode 4 - at the beginning! Locks up by the fourth command.

4 The characters are stupid

Love Lukas and Petra... even Jesse... least favorites are Olivia and Axel but at least Axel isn't the dumb muscle cliche.

What, but it has Reuben, Axel and Magnus, Soren's kind of a coward though


Uhhh, the characters are smart and cool

5 The camera angles are just terrible

Really? Any examples please? No.

The First Chapter starts out with you inside the tree house. The Camera is in a fix position. - BadBoiDrummer

SO TRUE - trender2004

6 The puzzles are so easy

God, the puzzle with the switches at the end of episode 1 took me quite a while to figure out. In episode 2, if you go to redstoina, it does take a little working out if your gonna craft a repeater. Still waiting for the next episodes cause it seems like there's only 1 major puzzle in each chapter.

I haven't played but I watched youtube I think the temple puzzle is the hardest puzzle minus killing the witherstorm


7 The giant boss

Yah it is easy - trender2004

Speaking of the Wither, the villain/enemy/boss, whatever you want to call it. [Spoiler Alert] The Wither is an extremely powerful 3 headed boss that shoot 2 types of projectiles. The first one is the poison projectile and the second one is for destroying the terrain. The Wither Telltale have given us here, to put simply, looks ridiculous. Just the look of it ruins the whole idea of it in actual Minecraft. It looks silly, and overdone, and nothing like the Wither at all. It does not have tentacles that reach out and grab people and blocks, it is supposed to throw a toxic-like ball at the people of Minecraftia with the destruction of blocks being collateral damage. This monstrosity basically embarrasses the Wither. - BadBoiDrummer

8 The first chapter is really short

I think it's too short

Um... look on the Xbox achievements guide. episode 1 is at least half an hour longer than episode 2

9 The game is targeted for younger kids

For gods sake, it says "crap" and "What the hell" a lot. I know some of the story s a little kiddish, but that was the beginning of episode 1. The end of episode 3, the wither storm is scarier than ever, Magnus/Ellegard dies and its creepy how gabriel/Petra (When you find that they are alive) look like a zombie and can't remember who they are. Still 2 more episodes...

It says crap, hell, and curse words a lot. I don't know what the creator of this was thinking.

Since this game got an E 10+ rating. It is meant to be targeted for younger kids right around the 6 to 8 year old range. - BadBoiDrummer

Why is it targeted for kids if they say what the hell, crap, and d*mn?

The Contenders

11 The game gets repetitive and really boring

How is it repetitive?

12 Inappropriate language

It is bad for little kids

They say stuff that arnt for kids 10 or less like these words

And other words like this
This game needs to be called

Minecraft swearing mode rated s for swearing

13 People shipping characters

Oh god


What? Jetra 4 life person here. Axlivia 4 life here too. Jetra is love. Jetra is life.

14 No Steve

Steve is one of the best video game characters and yet, the just put mr Jessi

Steve should be in an episode of season 2

Yeah you don't get to play as Steve in the game.

No now mincraft has some new mascots

V 2 Comments
15 Petra and Jesse should be together

Jetra is the best

16 Crafting isn't used much in the game

In fact it's only use three times in the first chapter. Plus I didn't like the Crafting system on how the way it was set up. You have to drag the items from you're inventory and onto the workbench. It seems like they were going for a realistic feel. - BadBoiDrummer

Stop ragging on this game! Sure there's one or two problems, but jeez

17 The Android edition breaks when you try to download an episode

That really sucks

18 Everyone is dying
19 Episode 3 is better than Episode 2

I disagree, I thought Episode 3 was boring and the puzzles were pretty annoying, Episode 2 was in my opinion pretty fun, though not as good as other chapters. - darthvadern

They both have their good and bad parts.

Episode 2: If you choose Boomtown, the WHOLE of that is fun and enjoyable. But Redstonia is a little boring since it is mainly puzzles. And the boss battle with Ivor at the end is EPIC!

Episode 3: Most of it wasn't too good. The beginning was alright, when your in the mob grinder. The middle of the episode when your in the end and other parts of Soren's lair are quite boring. But the end COMPLETELY makes up 4 it. The wither storm battle is epic, when you craft the Formidi-Bomb and blow it up. It is also cool when you find out that gabriel/Petra is alive.

Which means basically they fix the good problems that Episode 2 had. - BadBoiDrummer

The only episode that sucked was 4 (ending part)
Episode 1: 8.7/10
Episode 2: 10/10
Episode 3: 9.5/10
Episode 4: 6.1/10 (RIP Reuben you are going to be remembered :'-( )

20 They use the same music over and over again
21 The sounds aren't matching up with the pictures and doesn't even play
22 Episode 2 Is dumbed down and lame

In the middle of episode 2 you will see the characters exploring the land and the rest of the world. But the big issue is the characters were travelling across half of the worlds surface about 10 minutes on foot. - BadBoiDrummer

@BadBoiDrummer. So not true. The nether portal is like, REALLY close to the temple. And they take the minecart in the nether RIGHT to the portal in Boom town/ Redstonia

23 The villain isn't used much in Episode 2

If you ever played Tales from the BorderLands you will know that they will crack jokes once in a while, which makes you laugh. This Villain felt so serious that it just makes you clueless. - BadBoiDrummer

Um... the wither storm at least appears once, and there's a choice which you can see it twice in the chapter. And if you mean Ivor, well just play to the end of the chapter. That boss battle with Ivor was EPIC! You actually control it a lot unlike some scenes.

24 Episode 2 was rushed

Episode 2 was released two weeks after the first. It felt like they were in a hurry to get the 2 Episode out. - BadBoiDrummer

No it wasn't. They had already half finished episode 2 when episode 1 just came out.

25 The Giant Boss in Episode 2 doesn't make any sense

Your basically trying to stop the Villain and the giant boss and save the day. If you want a review, Check out the post that I posted. "Minecraft Story Mode (The 2nd Chapter)" - BadBoiDrummer

26 Episode 3 had way too many cut off voices

Believe me I was playing for myself and I noticed it. - BadBoiDrummer

27 The chapters are being released too early

For an Example: Chapter 4 was suppose to come out the 22nd of December, but on December 17th I see people on YouTube playing the chapter already. - BadBoiDrummer

28 It's boring

Yeah seriously. This category is already on here as "The game gets repetitive and really boring". What part of "My opinions" don't you understand. He's played the game, he knows what it's like.

[A message for the comment below] He is not a critic, this is all based on his opinion. He is just doing his thing on what it's like playing this game.

I agree, it gets super boring after awhile. People on YouTube pay to get Story Mode earlier. BadBoiDrummer, I think that you are just a critic. Inappropriate language is stuff like "crap" and stuff. I agree with you, but don't make it sound menacing. It's not 25$$ or whatever, buy it on! People viewing this, at least play it.

29 It is not a video game. It's an interactive movie.
30 It says my Apple ID is wrong

I did the first episode but when I want to go to episode 2 it asks me for my Apple ID but when I put the wright passcode it says it's incorrect

31 Too many stop motion events
32 Too much political correctness
33 Episode 1 is so hard to save Petra don Gabriel
34 We don't know anything about anyone

Okay, I love MCSM so much. Seriously, if I was in the game, I would be no help whatsoever and just fangirl around, squealing. Petra would probably do a YandereDev when I ask annoying questions and stab me in my forehead saying " SHUT. UP." God, I wouldn't survive the first episode. Anyway, the disappointing part is that we don't know any character's backstories or even any interests or dreams or goals they have. Heck, we don't even know their weight, heights, or age's. Maybe some stuff will be revealed in Ep 9 or this is one of those" Choose it yourself" things. At first it was kinda funny but now I'm steamed. I mean, nobody is curious about this ( I hope a you tuber does a discussion video on this I would love that and die of happiness) and the people who are make some pretty cringe theories. Here they are:
1. She is Herobrine. Me : What... the... heck?
2. She is an orphan or a runway from home. Me: Actually this makes the most sense.
3. She is a zombie. ...more

35 No colors

I can only see players not the other things
