Minecraft: Story Mode – Episode 5: Order Up! shapes up to be an incredible introduction to the Order of the Stone’s newest adventures, but still manages to fall a little short. Telltale introduces new concepts, characters and worlds, but their biggest mistake was shoving it all into a single episode.
Episode 5 has some fun action scenes and an interesting evolution of the known characters, giving the up-to-date player reasons to keep playing through Minecraft: Story Mode. However, with the Wither Storm saga having concluded in a satisfying manner in the previous episode, the disjointed pacing and rushed storytelling of Order Up also unintentionally makes this the exit point for those not still invested in the evolving characters.
