There seem to be plenty of adults who simply don't get Minecraft. It's not too difficult to understand. After all, what's so great about placing blocks? Not much, you might think. However, with Minecraft the only limit is your imagination. It's as much a canvas as it is a game. And that's the genius of this game. No rules. Just imagination. You can build anything, and I mean anything. There are so many tools at your disposal that you can be a digital Michelangelo or DaVinci if you wish. It lets the dreamers become doers. Hey, you DID build that.

But for me there's even a better reason to buy this game. Namely, it's a fantastic way to connect with your son/daughter, niece/nephew, younger sibling(s), etc. My nephew is about turn nine years old. He lives in Manhattan. I live in Utah. A couple of times a month we hop on our PS3s (we both have the digital version) and just goof around. We mostly hang out in creative mode (we occasionally take on mobs and trade with villagers in survival mode), building our world which so far includes three huge houses, an airport complete with runway and air traffic control tower, a restaurant, two towers with a skybridge, a huge swimming pool and a race track that runs through all of it. And we made it all together.

The PS3 version, unfortunately, has a lot of limits when compared to the PC version. No mods, limited skins (so far), etc, but you can play split screen, which is a huge plus for spending some quality time with your kid(s). I've found the PS3 multiplayer far easier to navigate than the PC version, too.

If you don't know really where to start, ask your Minecraft fan to craft you some armor. After that ask him/her about Creepers, Herobrine, Ender Dragons, Red Stone, and diamond armor. And then listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun game to play with family and or friends. May 21, 2014
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Those who have played Minecraft on PC, MAC etc.. will know that it's a very fun game, specially with all the mods, adventure, survival maps! I was waiting for Mojang to release it on a physical copy (for the PS3), and they finally did! The maps on the PS3 are not "infinite", but don't let that stop you from buying it, it's still really fun to play it with friends and or family! It's easy to get into multiplayer, and I love the split-screen feature. The controls were a little bit confusing for me, at first, but I already got used to them. It is missing some things (AS OF NOW), they 'might' add them later on, so it catches up with the PC version. Unfortunately, you can't add mods on this version, and the character skins aren't free. Overall, it's a fun game that kids and adults can enjoy! WARNING: this game can be very addicting!

I remember when Minecraft was first created a couple of years ago. Back then, and even up until recently, it didn't look that interesting to me. I'm into all kinds of different games and genres, but Minecraft just didn't pull me in when I'd see gameplay videos. Late last year, my daughter really got into it when she'd visit her friend's house, and not long after, it finally got ported to the ps3, which she immediately used a gift card on. Since then, no other game has gotten as much playtime, and I get to see her creations on an almost daily basis. She'd create dozens of worlds, all with something different and unique from one another, and while I was glad that she was playing a game where you could be so creative, I still wasn't that interested.

Then I started up a file for myself and I got it.

Minecraft is a game that this past console generation desperately needed. All-ages games of great quality are rare, and kids usually get the short end of the stick when it comes to games aimed at them. Unless it's Skylanders or Disney Infinity, there aren't many other options. Sure there's Rayman, Sly Cooper, Mario, Little Big Planet, the Lego games and a few others, but they're few and far between. And it just so happens that it appeals to people of all ages too. There's nothing really "kiddy" about it- Minecraft is a solid game worth checking out if you haven't already.

There's no real story here- you start up the game and enter a randomly generated world where you get to do whatever you want. Your world could have lush forests, massive beaches, tons of rivers, or mostly be water with just a couple of small islands (as was the case when I started my first world. That one quickly got deleted).

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'll admit, I reacted like many people when I first heard about this game: "Minecraft? Isn't that the game where you build things with blocks? Where's the fun in that?"

When I decided to play it and review it, I was amazed at the reactions I received - not from my friends, but from their children! They couldn't WAIT to tell me their stories about fishing and building minecart tracks and fighting Creepers with diamond swords and battling the Enderdragon...I hadn't even played Minecraft yet, but they were all excited for me to start!

GAMEPLAY:

Minecraft is an open world game where you create your own gameplay experience. Initially, it looks very simple - you play as an adventurer in a block-style format, and you need to gather items and mine for rare ores to craft items for your adventurer to survive. There isn't much of a story to speak of, and while there is a "boss battle", you don't have to fight it if you don't want to. During the day, you can see animals and interact with them - horses, sheep, cows, pigs, wolves, and many more. You can dig and uncover rare ores to fashion new weapons, armor, tools and construction materials.
However, when nighttime rolls in, you need to beware: there are several creatures which hunt you down - spiders, zombies, skeletons which shoot arrows, and even the dreaded Creeper - a monster which explodes if you linger too closely!

You can play in a peaceful style where no monsters chase you and you aren't in any danger, but this limits your gameplay experience. I decided to play in survival mode, to get the full effect of the game.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE, PLAYING FOR THE FIRST TIME?

I was afraid I'd be overwhelmed, but the tutorial mode was extremely easy to follow.
