Joe, you forgot the mods, the endless, amazing mods. Look up the AMCO pack (only for 1.81 currently), it turns the game from amazing to truely awesome... I lost 70 hours to it last week...

Am I the only person who can't compare this to Terraria? Yes they both have the same Physics...


But one is 3D and the other is 2D...And both have different play styles..

But yeah, back on topic, Minecraft is a game with endless possibilites..I cannot think of one thing which cannot be modded in it..

It was in the 8th paragraph on page 1 but it's been changed now.

If you want Minecraft DM, you need to play Ace of Spades: http://www.ace-spades.com/

I downloaded Minecraft a few days ago and haven't been able to stop since :D
It's an utterly fantastic game, completely addictive, well worth the money.

I was done with my Lego phase in the Seventies.
I prefer Battlefield 3 now.

You're done with your Lego phase? There is nothing I wouldn't give as an aduly to have an endless supply of lego to build ever more complex things. I wasn't even finished with my Lego phase when I had to grow up :'(

Need to have some kids of my own so I can play with Lego again

Who needs kids as an excuse? A few months ago I spent £80 on a Lego crane.. why? Because it's ****ing Lego!

Yet another "Opinion" and not even close to being an actual "Review."
I suggest you Google the word "Review." There are also quite a few online dictionaries from which you can get a clue.
I've never owned or held a single piece of a Lego, well, whatever it is. I owned "Lincoln Logs" which may, possibly, be something like I think Lego might be.
Two out of three people in your office don't care for this game, or whatever it is, yet you still rate it at 90%, which is, again, a personal opinion and not any rating whatsoever.
If you cannot even give a lucid account of what the program is, then you're exactly the wrong person reviewing this program. One of your higher-ups must be a relative and the one who gave you this job. You certainly aren't qualified to fill it.
Happy Thanksgiving, or whatever you Limey's do.

Minecraft is not a game, it is a tool for the imagination

It's great to see this Minecraft review was appreciated by important people outside of the UK. I don't know whatever it is you do in life but it must be very very important for you to have such a lofty opinion. We all bow down to your supreme-ness.

I loved Minecraft for a while, now I like it and give it an occasional go with friends, but I think folks take the whole like it or don't like it thing a bit seriously. It's a game, a cheap game to boot, and it is almost certain to provide you a decent amount of fun for the price. It's not a religion, it's not a football team, it's not a cult, it's just a game. Give it a spin, play until it stops being fun, then play more Skyrim.

Personally what caused me to get bored with Minecraft is I have absolutely no interest in the craft side of things, I actually really like the early game with a few mates trying to set up that first house, first mine, first food supply and so on. When it comes to building stuff in Minecraft for its own sake, I have no interest. But I don't resent the game the great many hours of fun I did get out of it.

Every time I look at minecraft and the stuff - worlds! - people have created, I think that this would make a *great* foundation for an open [M|MM][O]RPG. No complicated fiddling with builder toolsets. Anyone who gets Lego can create content! :-)

I think the fact that I mention the opinions of others, write the entire review in the first person and qualify exactly what the parameters and futility of this review is makes it clear that it's intended to be an expressly personal opinion about a game where personal involvement is the defining characteristic.

I also think it's fair to adapt style to fit the game you're reviewing: this one is written in the first-person, defying house style for third person. Why? Because personal opinion is crucial for this game. You can't simply go: Graphic 3/10, Gameplay (whatever that is): 5/10, Sound: 3/10, Overall: 5/10 because that supposedly objective outlook won't create a realistic or meaningful picture of the game you're trying to review. Minecraft is loved by millions of people and, from playing it for a year, I know it's not a **** game; merely a divisive one...which is exactly the point given in the review.

I've never heard of Lincoln Logs.

But he

Thanks, that's so kind! But we don't celebrate thanksgiving. We're busy working at our jobs, building minecraft worlds and writing "reviews" for website's which can be read by people across the atlantic while they're eating their families bodyweight in food and grossly over using the quotation to come across condescending scenario. I look forward to reading your review of Minecraft once you're back off your vacation.
"Happy" "Thank" "s" "giving" to "you" too!



Back to topic, I still dont really get minecraft, I mean, I get it, I just don't enjoy it that much. I can see the enjoyment for others though, but I get the impression it takes alot of your time to really get stuck in and I just dont have that these days.

Good review of a much loved game by many but I'm finding it hard enough to play through the games I already have, my game list even goes back to mass effect 2 which is completely unplayed, this is 1 example of many due to people saying you should play through the first one :D I tried it for a few hours but just didn't enjoy it at all so is part 2 just more of the same? I'm at a point with my game collection where I have many high caliber games unplayed & this seasons steam sale is mocking me plenty of games to buy but is a bit pointless until I play through what I already have :D.

I know what you mean. All these sales are tempting and they just increase your game backlog.

I guess minecraft offers a means to escape an overly complex reality. While reality is presented in ultra high definition with incredibly detailed textures, minecraft is the opposite with simple textured blocks. Reality is difficult to mould and shape to our will because of the many rules and regulations and being driven by the need to acquire money. Minecraft allows us to create whatever we want without the approval of big brother.

I don't own the game but I can envisage Minecraft the movie and some artists creating physical minecraft sculptures. How long before James May collaborates with an architect to create a real minecraft house?

Also I have played Minecraft longer than any other game I have ever owned while being one of the cheapest. I like that.
