Minecraft, as we know it, is becoming a high-success indie-game from 2009. Originally started as "Cave Game", Markus kept updating and updating it to what we know as today, Minecraft.

Alpha players discovered, Beta players did what everyone else was doing.

Every game reviewer focuses on the good sides of Minecraft, but I will focus on everyside. This will be unbiased.

  • You can build. Not many games have that.

  • Sounds are acceptable. The sounds are what you would expect to hear on materials.
  • The world is generated. You get a different play experience every time.

You can mine, build and feel proud of your work. You got the materials, and you built it. The sounds are what you would expect to hear like, especially stone. The world is generated randomly. So you have a different way of playing, which boosts up the replay.

The Bad:
  • Programmer Graphics. The graphic style is memorable, but face it, Markus is not an artist. What would of happened if Notch actually hired an artist? Programmer graphics are pixelated and blocky so they are placeholders until they hired an artist.

  • The AI is screwed up. If say, for an example a wolf teleports to you when you are at a edge of a ledge, the wolf pushes you off and you die, otherwise, it's just a pain to maintain. Villagers are a pretty good example. You can't grief them, (watch them punch or beat the hell out of you)

  • No villager sounds. When you punch a villager, no sound is played. Not even a flesh impact.
  • Minecraft is Released! 1.0.0 Was what they were calling the final development version of the game, but instead, new content is still being added.
  • Minecraft is not Finished. Again, content is still being added.
  • Lots of abandoned features Notch promised. Torches burning out, lanterns, more dragons, quivers, Pigmen, Spike block, CTF, so on.

  • PE is $6.99. Even though the game is not finished. It's missing a ton of features when it could be a free game.
  • New Feature = Stolen Mod. Tall grass. Generated structures. Need I say more?
  • Ripped Off Minecon Conventions. Notch asked if anyone wanted to go to Minecon for $90. He had gotten alot of No's. Instead, he upped the price to $140.
  • Notch Abandoned The Game. That is all.

Well, you won't need a wrap up.

Thanks for reading my review. Fans, you may rage now.

The graphics are supposed to be blocky and pixelated. It's Minecraft. That's what it's all about. Blocks.

...The game is still unfinished and being updated.


And they probably wouldn't like it. They are uncredited.
