Minecraft is one of my favorite games of all time, and its the most selling video game of all time as well. If you haven’t heard of Minecraft, or even played it, you must be living under a rock. I enjoyed Minecraft: Xbox One Edition so much, that I bought my original Xbox One just to play it! Now, Minecraft: Xbox One Edition is updated anymore. This is because of the launch of the game I am currently reviewing, Minecraft. Minecraft is just one of the best open world games I have ever played. But, maybe that’s because I don’t play a lot of open world games, but regardless, Minecraft is just so fun for many reasons.
There are endless possibilities to explore in Minecraft, from building giant cities that have skyscrapers that reach light limit, to fighting “the final boss,” the Ender Dragon. Each Minecraft world could be played differently. You can decide to take it slow, build a basic house to live in, and make a farm. Or you could build giant houses and try to make it to the Ender Dragon as fast as possible. But, in my opinion, the most exciting part of Minecraft is exploring. While exploring you can find so much call stuff, from villages to Woodland Mansions. Villages are little pre-built towns that can be found around the map. Inside of the Villages are villagers. Villagers are non-hostile mobs that a player can trade with. One of the key parts of trading with villagers is Emeralds, a rare ore that is pretty rare. Just the excitement of thinking what can be out their in your Minecraft world is just so fun too think about.
For those of you who want to play casually, I mean very, very, casually, then Creative mode is great for you. You can freely access anything you want from Survival mode and build your dream Minecraft. (Achievements can not be earned in creative mode. As soon as a world is changed to creative, it therefore voids any achievements.) People can make absolutely crazy stuff in Minecraft, like Mansions, Parkour Maps, Giant Roller Coaster, etc. I find creative pretty fun to do, but I would prefer survival if I had to choose one or the other.
Achievements: Most people reading this will probably want to know about achievements. Most of the achievements can be earned pretty easily. There are many guides that tell you a seed and you can just the achievement in their world basically. But, there is one achievement that is really annoying to do, even if your using a seed. This achievement is to trade for 1,000 Emeralds. If you read the section about exploring above, you’d know how to do this. However, the grind is just not fun to do. Some maniacs actually like Minecraft that much to ligitamitley do it, but I myself never did it as of writing this review.
