Minecraft Xbox 360 Review (MasonicGamer.com)

MasonicGamer.com - What can I say about Minecraft that hasn’t been said already? In the few years since the alpha builds began making the headlines, we’ve seen all manner of stories, articles, and videos about crazy creations built by the ever-growing legion of fans. For a game that’s so basic in its concept and so simple in its design, Minecraft has kept the attention of gamers for many times longer than even the biggest of blockbusters. Now, finally, the phenomenon has arrived on Xbox 360, and console owners the world over can see what the fuss is all about.

So what is the fuss all about? Its probably about the fact that Minecraft is not a “game” in the traditional sense of the word. A game has rules, objectives, and a way to win. You’ll find none of these while exploring the blocky landscapes and building your ultimate dream-homes, as the world of Minecraft goes on for as long as your imagination can cope. No missions, objectives, quests, tasks, or boss fights will you encounter, just an unending landscape to shape and mold with the tools you make. (Minecraft, Xbox 360) 8/10

Still haven't played any version of this game.

Neither have I & im glad. The Dev is laughing his ass off all the way to the bank with the amount of money he's made out of this pointless project. It's the Tamagotche of 2012 it'll soon fade away never to be heard of ever again.

You know I use to NOT see the point of Minecraft, then I actually played it.

Instead of bashing something without trying it actually play it? I thought the idea was dumb the. I played with a group of friends. It's actually a fun game. Why do you think it's bad? Because its about building and not killing?

"Look at me. I've never played this game and don't know much about it, but watch me completely trash it because I don't feel good about myself!"

I have to admit I'm curious about Minecraft, but I have too much of a headache right now to elaborate.

I don't think the game is bad im an avid PC gamer but truthly ive never gotten round to playing it. It just never looked like a game that interested me.

I must admit that I hadn't played the game in sometime until wednesday when it came out on XBLA, now it as me hooked again.

Really hope that XBLA version gets the updates along side the PC version

A game has to have a defining goal to accomplish. By simple definition if there is no goal then its not a game. Thats why I can safely say without having to play it, that as a 'game' it's rubbish.

Things like this have been easily available & as easy to use for decades on the PC.
