What can I tell you though is that this is one of the most addicting games I've ever played! It's not your standard game in that it does not have a plot and storyline that you follow. You create a world and then build in that world. It's as simple as that. You can built whatever your heart desires. Well, whatever your heart desires that can be built with cubes and a variety of tools and accessories. When I first heard of Minecraft I thought it was more tailored towards children. Make no mistake, this game is great for everyone. I have an 8 year old nephew who loves building simple towers and houses, while I try to challenge myself a little more and build entire cities with unique textures and designs. It is so satisfying to think of a new design and see your idea come alive as you build it to completion. Once you get an idea in your head, it's hard to put the controller down. I've told myself that I'm going to build for an hour and then go to bed, only to look at the clock "a little while later" and realize it's 3 in the morning.
There are two modes of gameplay: Creative and Survival.
Creative mode is exactly as it sounds. If you're only interesting in seeing what you can build and don't want to worry about gathering materials, that's what creative mode is for. It's catered to letting you build as fast and efficient as you can. I prefer to play on Survival mode (which I will get to next) but I have a creative mode map that I will use to test new designs so I don't throw hours into it in Survival mode and then realize it's not going to work or it isn't as cool as I thought it would be. If you're looking to build something from a movie or another game, I'd recommend Creative mode. I spent hours building the Tower of Sauron but it would have taken WAY longer in Survival mode.
As I said above, Survival mode is my preference. It adds a little more spice to the game. You have to gather your materials by mining or digging, kind of like a watered down game like Runescape. You have to stay alive by eating food. It's SO fun building a farm of crops and animals. Most people start by building a house and then building a nice little farm next to it. There are also monsters in Survival mode that you need to defend yourself from. They only come out at night but they can be a real pain in the hind end, especially Creepers, which will explode if they get too close to you. It's quite frustrating to be working on building something and then having a creeper walk up behind you and blow a nice big hole in your creation. But, that's what makes in interesting. I get a much better sense of pride in my work if I have to earn my materials.
Again, this game is great for people of all ages. Minecraft has become my go to stress reliever. It's quite calming to play a game that allows me to... well, to just build a world, whatever the heck I want. As I said above, it gives you a real sense of accomplishment when you complete a design and stand back and look upon your creation. If you haven't played before, it will take you an hour or two to get up to speed on using tools and how to craft different things, but it's about as simple as it can be for as much as you can do. I highly recommend this game for anyone looking for a change of pace from the shoot 'em ups. If you want to buy a game that you feel is suitable for a kid, this game is perfect for that too.
