I'm sure this thread will garner some attention if it ends up scoring well. But if it don't, it's dead.

Dragon Quest: Builders is really cool and cute. It's a lot like Minecraft. It feels a lot more linear and explanatory though. From the get-go, you get told what to do, and how to do it. Which isn't a bad thing. Early Minecraft was pretty much free-for-all, but later versions introduced objectives and tutorials, hell, even an end-game. This game seems to be that.

So far, it doesn't seem to be as "free" as Minecraft. Building stuff doesn't seem to be as easy or intuitive as Minecraft. For example, there's no swimming. I fell in the water, I took some damage, and the game respawned me next to the spot I fell in. Disappointing.

Regardless though, it's cute, the music is good, and I think that any person that digs Minecraft and Dragon Quest will dig this, but like I said, so far, it's kinda limited. But maybe that might be a good thing for certain individuals.

Thoughts? Might be someone here that bought it.

I played the demo. The game is fun, but man the controls just ruin it. The button layout is just crazy. The block placement is hit or miss. The game could have been so good. Minecraft with a touch of RPG, with Dragon Quest enemies.

I don't know, maybe I'll check it out again later, but paying $60 for a Minecraft clone with bad controls is not going to happen for me. Even with the tie in to Dragon Quest. Especially when there is Minecraft and tons of other good clones out there for less than $20.

It's better than Gears of Flop 4 at least so that means it is probably an ok experience and nothing too special. TLHBO

Really, isn't Gears of War 4 85/100 on MC while this game is 83/100?

Also, Minecraft is 89/100 on PS4, another Microsoft game.

You forgot the whole RPG elements thing that makes it more appealing to people who don't like the openness of Minecraft.

I decided to go with Portal Knights. Its cheaper and accomplishes more or less the same.
