Minecraft Review | The Digital Fix

Finally arriving on the Xbox 360, following its phenomenal success on the PC and iOS devices, Mojang’s Minecraft has already become the fastest selling Xbox Live Arcade title in history notching over 1 million downloads to date. 4J Studios, who previously worked on the Perfect Dark remaster, take the reins of development for the Xbox Edition. For all the hype and popularity surrounding the title it is still a little daunting to commit 1600 Microsoft Points to a game that seems abstract, visually basic and potentially boring as hell. In terms of gameplay, Minecraft is the very definition of a sandbox – or should that be ‘sand-blocks’, of which there are plenty – game, presenting the player with a procedurally generated landscape and nothing more than their imagination to hand. (Minecraft, Xbox 360) 8/10
