Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition

 

When I was young, I used to play with Lego's all the time. Like, obsessively so. I can't tell you how much time I spent coming up with new uses for those colorful bricks. Over the years I crafted some impressive things, but my favorite was a Resident...

The attention to detail in this game is remarkable. The music is beautiful and you can even craft a jukebox to play different tunes. You can take wool from sheep, dye it, and use it to decorate your home. You can build simple things like windows,...

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past two years, you have undoubtedly heard of Minecraft. Maybe you haven't played it but you have certainly heard the name. The indie project-turned-phenomenon from the mind of Markus “Notch” Persson...

Minecraft on the Xbox Live Arcade is an addicting and rewarding experience, assuming you are willing to put the time into the experience. This is one of those games where you will truly get out whatever you put into the game, and that can be both good...

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition Review

 

Every now and then, a game appears that captivates the industry. The latest game in that category is Minecraft, which has been a massive success in the PC gaming market. Thanks to 4J studios, gamers on the Xbox 360 can now experience this phenomenon....

Minecraft is a game that needs to be experienced by all gamers at least once, and the Xbox 360 edition makes the game more accessible to everybody. The game feels incomplete, but it still is worth the rather expensive $20 price tag, when compared to...

Minecraft Xbox 360 Review

 

The announcement of Minecraft for Xbox 360 has been kicked around for nearly a year, and finally this week this console port is out. The journey of this game from half-working alpha that people could buy into and play, all the way to a full game with...

Those who see past the blocky graphics to bring out the fun of Minecraft, especially with their friends, will find that this game is well worth the money. I've seen people's recent forum posts about building their first house and initially learning...

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition review –…

 

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is more than just a decent facsimile of its PC progenitor. In some ways it could be considered better, or at least purer. There have certainly been a few concessions made to get it on the Xbox 360, but the changes are...

Less isn't more in this updated port of Mojang's indie sandbox hit.

Core gameplay is still as addictive as ever ; Updated crafting system rocks ; Excellent multiplayer options

Missing a lot from the PC version ; No Creative mode ; Worlds are smaller and constrained

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition Review

 

When Minecraft first came out for PC, I didn't really “get it”. I don't know if it was my prior refusal to get into PC gaming with the whole World of Warcraft thing going on, or if I just lacked the patience at the time to settle in and build stuff, as...

And you’ll need to, too, because when the night comes, the creatures come pouring out, and you’re put to the test in order to survive. We’re talking those weird little Creepies that are relentless, along with spiders and zombies that set out to make...

Minecraft Xbox 360 Review

 

The secret of Minecraft's success isn't any one component of its design, but rather the way every piece of it coalesces to create an experience that's more liberating and creatively fulfilling than most video games.

Minecraft on Xbox is almost as good as the PC version. It’s still a great way to express yourself, but the lack of some of the PC features like mods and Creative Mode is disappointing. The vastly improved crafting interface and smooth online play make...

Mine! Craft! With friends!

Classic Minecraft gameplay on your console.; 8-player online/4-player local multiplayer

Limited content upon its release

A wonderful addition to Xbox Live Arcade.

Oh, so that's what all the fuss was about. Minecraft was always one of those games that you heard so much about, and yet purposefully avoided because you knew it was either going to be exactly as people said it would – addictive and time consuming - or...

The first night you ever spend in Minecraft is uniquely fascinating and utterly terrifying, all at the same time. Shame it’s something you can only experience once.
