Minecraft is an open world survival game where the player takes control of a character that they can use to build, mine, farm, fight and travel. The game features two game modes. The first being Creative, which gives users an endless supply of all blocks and items in the game and allows you to do and create what ever you want. The second game mode, Survival, gives players more of a challenge where they must mine, trade, fight and explore to get the blocks and items they will need to survive and “complete” the game.
Visually Minecraft looks simple, with its blocky graphics and simple texture. Mostly everything is cubed and building/mining is done 1 cubed block at a time. The textures are simple but still very nice. However, with multiple biomes to explore, huge maps, sun rises, sun sets, moon phases, weather changes, animals and enemies this game still looks very stunning while sticking to its simple form.
The game controls are very simple, but are also very effective. These controls make it easy to control everything you do and don’t leave you wondering how to do anything. Most of the game play can be figured out by playing on your own, but a simple and well-explained tutorial world is available for new players.
When playing Minecraft, the main menu and game music is relaxing and enjoyable. The in game sound effects will also change depending on where you are, what is around you and what the weather is like. Everything clicks together to give you perfect sound that never gets old.
This game provides endless hours of fun, with infinite possibilities. If you can imagine it, you can probably make it in Minecraft. From simply building a house or making complex red stone circuits, any age or level of gamer will enjoy playing this game over and over again. Play alone or invite your friends from xbox live, the experience is always different with every new world you make. Weather you’re relaxing in creative mode, or killing mobs in survival, this game has a little something for just about everyone.
All in all, this is an amazing game with no major issues. It’s simple, fun to play and has an endless amount of things to do and create, I strongly recommend everyone to at least give this game a try. I honestly can’t think of one thing I’d improve, this game is great in every sense. 5/5, give it a shot!
