  • Conclusion: Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the King of all Indie Games: Minecraft. Has the game already been out on the Xbox 360 for two weeks? I guess I’m a little late to the party and didn’t get this out on time as I expected to. This little ‘collecting & building’ game created by Notch and crew over at Mojang has revolutionized the way nerds play "virtual LEGOs." Instead of paying $40 for a small set of LEGOs, why not just pay $20 for unlimited virtual fun?

Minecraft Review

GameSpot
29 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Minecraft is dangerous. You can sit down to a new randomly generated world for a quick session only to snap out of the creative haze many hours later to realize you've forgotten to eat, sleep, and go to the bathroom. There's always just one more tunnel to carve, one more resource to harvest, one more tool to forge, or one more to-scale replica of the Star Trek Enterprise to re-create block by block.
  • Pros: Blocky retro aesthetic is charming, Crafting system has amazing depth, Great balance between building and adventuring
  • Cons: No in-game tutorials or recipe guides, Some game elements feel unfinished

  • Conclusion: While Minecraft may not be everybody's cup of tea, I doubt anyone can deny that it's an important step into new territory. It has already inspired a myriad of titles (Terraria, for example, has become a huge success) and there are many more on the horizon. These are exciting times, but in order to acknowledge that, you'll need to broaden your horizons too and tread into these vast and mysterious new territories yourself. Don't be shy now, give it a try.
  • Pros: The first true sandbox game, enjoy your freedom;
  • Cons: Constantly searching the Web for crafting recipes, some might object to the absence of an actual storyline and a sense of purpose.

  • Summary: This indie-game blockbuster (get it?) is among the most creative open-world games ever made. Its simplistic look hides an incredibly rich gameplay experience that is literally endless in its possibility.
  • Pros: Epic adventure: Minecraft's procedurally generated landscape and resources provide limitless adventure and possibility., Provides the tools for endless creative expression, As addictive as nico-crack (a nictotine-crack hybrid I invented)
  • Cons: Could use a little in-game guidance, Newer "RPG-Style" aspects seem thin and listless

Minecraft (PC) - Review

  • Excerpt: Have you ever played with Legos, built a tree fort, or made a castle in the sand? Are you the kind of person who plays The Sims just to build your house? Were you the kind of student who was more interested in building molecules out of marshmallows and toothpicks than learning math? If you are the kind of person who has any creative tendencies, then Minecraft is the game for you.
