  • Summary: Imagine it, and you can build it. Create your very own game world and explore, build and conquer. When night falls the monsters appear, so ensure you’ve made yourself a shelter before they arrive. Make it through the night and the world is only limited by your imagination you choose what you want to make or what to do. Play on your own, cooperatively with friends in 2 player and 4 player split screen modes, or online with up to 8 players. Split screen option requires HD TV with HD connection. Expand

    Turning a pristine landscape into grand palaces and irrigation systems using your own two hands while things try to kill you isn’t just an amazingly rewarding gaming experience, it’s a clever retelling of human history.

    It's the excellent game it always has been, with as much to get out of it as you're willing to put in. [Issue#240, p.62]
  3. The game that changed games arrives on PlayStation in fine form with an improved crafting system, tarnished only slightly by a cramped map size. Until the full-fat PS4 Edition arrives, this’ll do nicely.

    A good port of Minecraft, nearly identical to the Xbox 360 one. The PC version is bigger and better, but this is a quality console experience.

    The PlayStation 3 version of Minecraft is as good as earlier releases on other platforms. Everything is included in the package and the game is still a lot of fun to play, in single-player mode or with your friends with splitscreen. A true builder has to pick this game up.

    There will always be players who get upset by the lack of pace, scenery apathy, or lack of clarity of purpose, my advice is to insist, Minecraft does not push you to the roller coaster, it invites you to come and discover, and then conditions you without mercy in a world of infinite possibilities.

    This Minecraft Edition is a simplified version, perfect for everyone and for who has never experienced the PC version.

    In my opinion minecraft is a great game for me it builds autonomy because it is also fun to play but it let us learn some things related to real life, like survival; In PS3 which was very expected minecraft it came out now it´s even more fun! Expand

    This is my very first year playing Minecraft, and I get the pleasure of playing it on the PS3 for the very first time. It is super fun, and I can clearly see why this game is still so addictive to people all around the world. There is no glitches or lags whenever I play, it runs very smoothly and the controls are very very simple and easy to use. There can be no argument when I say this game is a 10 out of 10. No question at all. Expand

    Minecraft: PS3 Edition brings PC gamers and Playstation gamers together

    Pros:Everything that is good in the PC and Xbox is still good here


    Cons:Most servers lag for me(i'm not sure if it's just me), not up-to-date like the PC version is(Same for the Xbox version), Combat feels shallow in some parts, can get boring at times.

    Recommendation:Hardcore gamers and Minecraft Fans

    Although lacking a lot of the elements of PC platformed Minecraft, this is still a great game. Aimed for all ages, and very simple to play, you've got to love it. A few minor bugs to be fixed; and when at the same level as Minecraft: Xbox 3360 edition, It'll be a 10. Expand

    This game can be fun, once you get around the XBOX fan boys who say "PLAYSTATION DIDN'T DESERVE THIS". Controls are as strange as the XBOX version, no, this is a ripoff, is a PORT. What else can I say?its minecraft, but still, this is BEST played on PC. Expand

    Childish, overhyped and plain bad. Boring, ugly, horrible. Do not believe the hype. Just stay away from one of the most overrated games ever. Please do not believe the hype, this is a ripoff. Expand
