"Is this block-builder a blockbuster?" now aren't they just clever.
Minecraft shouldn't really be reviewed as a game, it's a great program for building 3D pixel art but the actual game part of it is rather lacking without mods which really aren't fair to include in the review unless GT plans to start doing it with every other game...
It's fair to mention, but not affect the overall score. When looking at their Presentation score (8.0), it doesn't seem that mods influenced the final grade.
I was mostly referring to it's gameplay 8.5 score. Unmodded the games combat is really boring and basic as well as not having much enemy/creature variety. At most I'd give it a 6 in the gameplay category without mods but minecraft isn't really about that any way so they could still leave the overall score as a 9 and I'd be fine with that.

Okay, I'm perfectly fine with that being YOUR gameplay score; however, we're talking about a Gametrailers reviewer who may have enjoyed the overall gameplay (combat, crafting, etc.) more than the average user.
