    Tried it, boring compared to Terraria. At least in Terraria you actually get to have FUN.

    Terraria and Minecraft are fun for different reasons, so I can see both sides. Terraria has better dungeons and mobs while Minecraft is wayyy better in terms of what you can create and build.

    I've been playing this game on and off since the alpha and I still love it. I can't recommend it enough! Great review!

    Agreed! I must have sunk hundreds of hours into MC at least, if not 1000+. I started playing of October of last year, and had a massive amount of fun until I stopped playing in May to do other stuff, like sleeping. CAPTCHA:München, yeentsu I'm not using a German keyboard CAPTCHA. :P

    There is TalkRadar minecraft server you know. We're on Twitter @ TDardMinecraft . Ask Cleanser 247 on the forums or twitter to be allowed on. I think he's knee deep in skyrim right now though...

    I own this on the PC and I love it, but I am really just waiting for the console release next year. I'll probably get more enjoyment out of the console version plus I'm going to assume that connecting to multiplayer world are going to be a bit easier. The only thing I'm not sure about is how much will it cost? Is it still gonna cost $25, Or will it be around $15? If so I'm worried that they might take some of the features out. ReCaptcha: adsgettingOld All one word, I'm not kidding.

    I agree, I am excited to play minecraft on 360 (mostly because I don't have a computer that can handle it) but nonetheless, it'll be a day one buy for me.

    SO ITS BETTER THAN HALO REACH?@?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?! :) Just kidding, spent more hours in minecraft than any other game

    But Minecraft is was better beforeit's release and it has more gamebreaking glitches then any game I've ever played...
  • talleyXIV - December 18, 2011 10:38 p.m.

    Name one gamebreaking glitch. Seriously, you can not.
  • MetroidPrimeRib - December 19, 2011 12:15 p.m.

    Major Chunk problems Creepers have terrible explosion distance (For instance, you could be 5 feet away one time and be safe and 5 feet away another and die. With fully enchanted explosive resistant armor)
  • MetroidPrimeRib - December 19, 2011 12:21 p.m.

    By "Chunk" problems I mean a part of a map can contain 100 creepers and grow so large or grow to a certain capacity it destroys the entire game. Or atleast makes a void. In the middle of your town or hunting grounds.
  • talleyXIV - December 19, 2011 2:30 p.m.

    Literally, both of those problems are non-existent.... or you are doing something really weird to make it happen. Plus, both of those are not game-breaking. If you can't play because a couple of creepers gather up, it is your own damn fault. By the way, chunk problems are mostly due to the PC you play on. I also have to point out the stupid line "grow to a certain capacity that it destroys the entire game." I have put down 1,000 TNT, and it did not 'destroy the entire game.' And I have no idea what the hell you mean with "grow to capacity." Creepers don't gather up unless you make them gather up. All these game-breaking glitches are a result of your own stupidity.
  • MetroidPrimeRib - December 20, 2011 12:38 p.m.

    It's a spawning issue You obviously have no idea how the game works
  • BIOSback - December 15, 2011 4:09 p.m.

    Minecraft=Skyward Sword?
  • Cwf2008 - December 15, 2011 5:49 p.m.

    I think I'd enjoy it a lot more if the recent updates didn't make it lag like a bitch on my computer.
  • Net_Bastard - December 15, 2011 8:14 p.m.

    Optifine mod. I had the same problem until I downloaded that. Also you can allocate more RAM. reCAPTCHA: Igothe Original What original thing did I get?
  • talleyXIV - December 15, 2011 8:35 p.m.

    I literally play Team Fortress 2 with no frame rate lag whatsoever however the recent Minecraft keeps crashing. That's why this game deserves a 7. If he would've stopped the updates at 1.7, it would be an amazing game. The enchantment tables and the end, are two of the worst things about this game.
  • lazer59882 - December 15, 2011 8:36 p.m.

    i don't get this game. its literally just a sandbox for you to build your own game. how this could get a 9 is beyond me, but then again i shouldn't expect any better from the same media that thought little big planet was some kind of gaming revolution, when all it was was tools to build your own game.
  • huntreilly25 - December 15, 2011 9:18 p.m.

    have you tried the game? I would respect your dislike for the game if you had actually played it and were able to give concrete reasons for your dislike rather than just "not getting it". I understand that not everyone is going to like the game, but don't judge something before you give it a try.
