    Great idea, just needs some direction

    So, I've made a couple of bases, and mined them as deep as I can to find the "good stuff". Built staircases down and fashioned several mine shafts off the main stairs. Discovered a few deep caverns, avoided some lava flo... Read Full Review

    Endless world makes for addicting gameplay.

    *Note: This review is specific to Minecraft Alpha (Survival mode). In Minecraft, your game begins in a nearly infinite world (almost 8x as large as Earth's surface, according to the website) around mid-morning. You h... Read Full Review

    Very interesting and addictive adventure game.

    This game is awesome. The graphics are perfect for the game because the creators wanted a little game but a complex one. I like the surviving thing and the fact that you can mine for Coal/Iron/Gold/Red-stone/Diamond etc... Read Full Review

    Well worth the 10$

    I'll keep my review short and simple: Minecraft is cheap. It's full of potential. It does what few games succeed in doing. It makes manipulating the world around you 1. Challenging and 2. Pleasurable. It doesn't use a... Read Full Review

    Minecraft is a work of art.

    After being placed in a random part of a truly randomly-generated world; which is often complete with glorious mountain ranges, deep caverns, and vast oceans; you're left to figure things out on your own. With your ba... Read Full Review

    Adult Legos in your own massive, unique, emergent world.

    Minecraft is the best alpha of any game you'll ever play, ever. Sole developer (as of now) Notch has crafted an addictively simple formula: unique worlds with every new game, a simple and intuitive crafting system, and t... Read Full Review

    Worth the money, and only in alpha. Hands down one of the best PC games I've ever played. GREAT online community.

    I first heard about the game on Reddit about a year ago and bought it. It was sandbox mode only back then but I still loved it. I have recently returned to the World of Minecraft to find that Notch, the developer, has ... Read Full Review

    Fun, addictive, old-school

    Minecraft is hard to describe. A player will start the game with nothing, plopped down into a procedurally generated level. Provided one doesn't look at a walk through the next few hours will be filled with exploration a... Read Full Review

    Minecraft, one of the best indie titles I have played in years.

    Minecraft is a game where you are given a world, your imagination, and the ability to let your creativity flourish. Never before have I played a game so enthralling, I have had this one game on my mind for days now and I... Read Full Review
