You can't say anything new about Minecraft really. Such an amazing game. My wife can't figure it out, but my 9yr old and I adore it and the split screen multiplayer option for local play is what makes this Xbox One version unmissable. I miss the option to personalise your Minecraft experience with mods, but the different textures and maps provided (at extra cost I should warn) made up for this to an extent. We played for hours in the Norse map which is absolutely fantastic. Was a bit disappointed with some of the other maps, but enjoyed the puzzle aspects of the Greek mythology map.
Look forward to updates to the game. Don't care about bug fixes Mojang. Get those mods installed.
I love the PC version but struggle with the controls on the XBox version (this isn't Minecraft's fault). The game is open ended which doesn't suit everybody, and you need to find a way of playing the game that works for you. If you haven't played before, watch some videos on youtube. The xbox version requires you to subscribe to Microsoft's network if you want to play on a server with other people. No subscription is required if you want to play multiplayer games with other people on the same XBox (I think it supports up to 4 players locally - if you have 4 controllers).
Minecraft is one of those games that takes minutes to learn and a 'lifetime' to master!
Imagination is the limit and the freedom to create is out of this realm!
I have two sons aged 5 and 7 that love minecraft and the ability to play in the same world together is great. Not only that, their 32 year old dad can also join them on his console and get ordered around collecting wood and stone for them.
You can spend hours lost in this game and do whatever you please. We have all found the survival mode the best as you have to create a house of some kind where you can be safe from the monsters that come out in the night!
A truly great game for all the family and with the makers of the game constantly adding updates and new things, it will be very long time before this one dies down :-)
Our son bought this with some of his birthday money. he was so excited. It arrived before the time stated which he was over the moon about. good price and well packaged. the game is really good I don't even no how to work it out properly but my son soon got the hang of it quickly. hes now into all things minecraft .
This was cheaper than the other Minecraft variants and as always guaranteed version and quality you get from Amazon. Kids of all ages just love Minecraft. My son noticed you get a lot more options and free add ons than with the Xbox 360 version. Best £12.68 I have spent in a while ( I live in Malta and Amazon only charges me 18% VAT not UK 20% hence £12.68 not £12.99, which is nice).
My two 7 year olds, boy and a girl, love this game like something crazy. Could spend days on this if they got away with it. Building and letting their imaginations run wild with lands that they creat together. I don't get it and I think it looks rather tripy but I haven't gave the game a bash myself so I can't judge. My kids are nuts for it though so happy days!. Highly recommend.
The disc version of minecraft is no longer supported and to get the updates you have to pay for rhe digital version, you are better off buying the digital version from the start rather than getting a hard copy
Bought this for my son, which boys have't heard of minecraft! He loves it, looks like virtual lego to me, but I'd much prefer this to lots of the games out there. Allows for the imagination (just as lego would), seems like harmless fun. My son is 13, he's been playing minecraft games for about 3 years, he and his friends are all still fans.
