After just 5 minutes of playtime, I knew this game wasn't for our family. The characters speak to each other in degrading ways. The girl character is the "smart" one and the boy is the "ignorant" one which is typical of the narrative the culture is pushing right to dumb down our boys. They said "shut-up" several times, "oh-crap", and "what the h…" It felt like the creators of the game were trying to use these tactics to appeal to the younger generation, but these kids like mine craft for what it is, it was completely unnecessary. This game is going back!
The interactions and the verbiage are not nice. I would not want to hear my 9yo speaking to people the way the characters in story mode speak to each other. Others have identified some of the 4-letter words used, but I was most offended hearing "jerk wad." Fortunately my son was not able to repeat it when I asked him what that character just said. He has also said that some of the options available for his character aren't very nice, like calling people jerks or idiots. It's too bad that the creators think this is good role modeling for our youth.
Kids could play this game, and there is only "[email protected]" and "h#ll" but what's the point badly thinking of these words. Don't bother with the language when it is only said a few times, and this game could easily pass as a PEGI 3 or an ESRB E
Not recommended for sensitive children. (Spoilers!)
Pros: good story line, good graphics, the story can be different each time you play, entertaining
Cons: mild cuss words used frequently that were found distracting and unnecessary; for example: crap, freak, freakin, jerk, what-the, etc., death of characters that my sensitive 11-yr-old found upsetting; for example, my son was required to chose armor from one of two characters. After doing so, the character who gave up his armor got hurt and died. Another instance was at the end of Chapter 4, his pet gave him a sword and then fell of a cliff and died.
My kids are 9 and 4. This game is going BACK! “Freaking,” “what the hell,” “crap,” “idiot,” are said on the regular. My 9 year old was VERY disappointed!! She said they say horrible things to each other and she doesn’t like it. It’s convicting to her heart not to play it. I know my 4 year old would repeat everything the game said with mirrored attitude if he had heard it. So many reviewers think this is acceptable language. NOT ME. It’s going back.
As huge minecraft fans i got this for my gf without second thought. Knowing it is 'story mode' one would still expect improved gameplay and mechanics in the survival and creative modes of minecraft even if we're not interested in the story.
In the end not even a good or fun story mode, only to find out there is no survival or creative mode either.
SURPRISE, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! yep both of us trading it back in even for a loss, very nice birthday surprise, time to organise a late surprise present without her knowing.
This amazing game is probably good for kids 8 to 10 up. Mostly because they say frickin crap and hell. There is some mild flerting between Jessie and Petra but barly any. Also in order to play other episodes u need to buy them. But other wise its definatly worth getting, especially if your a minecraft fan like me.
I should have looked at the reviews before buying this game. My son (7yrs old) was looking forward to this game, after purchasing it, however we were disappointed with the cursing. This game isn't suitable for young children. It went straight back to gamestop. We went with Mario go cart deluxe 8 for Nintendo switch instead. We are hoping that future minecraft games won't be like this one.
My 9-year-old and 6-year-old both cried hard after Reuben died. He squeals for a solid minute before closing his eyes and dying. It’s unnecessary and irresponsible. The rating was Y7 on Netflix, so I assumed it was fine. Unfortunately, I have lost faith in the rating system...
