    Minecraft Dungeons meat is in its satisfying combat and complex character-building opportunities, and in that, the game delivers by the truckload.

    Minecraft Dungeons is a dungeon-crawling adventure that promises a lot of fun for gamers young and old alike. While its replay value may wane with time, a constantly growing progression system and its various difficulty settings offer a lot for those less affected by the repetition.

    Minecraft Dungeons is a breezy dungeon crawler that reproduces Minecraft's playful attitude.

    It’s funny, engaging and, at times, surprisingly challenging: Minecraft Dungeons only lacks a bit of depth in the end-game area, and we hope to see that added in the next months.

    Minecraft Dungeons is a capable all-ages dungeon crawl that, while doesn’t use its license to anything like its full potential (see Dragon Quest Builders 2 for how to do it right), is still good fun once it gets moving. The variety of enemies keeps you on your toes, and the various skills and weapons make for plenty of experimentation in figuring out the best way to take them on. Each level has at least a couple of secrets to chase after, ranging from obvious to head-scratchingly obscure, and finding everything while collecting all the gear will keep players busy for hours whether fighting single- or multiplayer. Just be aware that if you’ve got any experience with the genre, the difficulty selections on the levels are there for a reason. The younger crowd deserves a good intro to the world of dungeon crawling and Minecraft Dungeons provides that nicely.

    Cooperative fun for the whole family with typical Minecraft optics. Gets boring quickly, though.

    Unfortunately, the lack of personality sets this cute dungeon crawler back.

This is not Minecraft.This game is an absolute godsend for non-hardcore gamers like me. Also, if you people want crafting, go play Minecraft. This is not Minecraft. It is a different game, and Mojang doesn't have to make Minecraft 2. It's fun putting on the hundreds of strategies that exist and figuring out how to beat the bosses. The multiplayer local/online, is incredibly simple and easy to use. It's a well balanced game that is easier for many un-hardcore gamers, who take up more than 55% of the gamers. THIS IS A GODGAME.

    Good gameplay, low bugs. Very funny played with others friends and easy to invite it.
    The story is trivial and foregone. Other problem is that it's too short. If you want to expand your adventure in game you have to pay too soon in my opinion. Another problem, DLCs too short in relation to what you pay.
    Unnerving.

And after the game's release, I can't help but feel disappointed. Extremely disappointed. With such a renowned franchise and with ample development time, this is all they could deliver? It's a short game with many problems. Dungeons is a bare-bones ARPG that has so much potential, yet fails in almost every regard. Combat gets repetitive, the progression system is unique but uninteresting and unrewarding, and despite being under the Minecraft name, there is nothing of Minecraft effectively handled here. Building and crafting could be heavily used as an interesting and gun mechanic, like crafting a consumable weapon quickly to help fight waves of enemies. Sure, the aesthetic is there, but strip that away and you're left with a watered down experience that shows Microsoft's inability to evolve the Minecraft brand in any meaningful way. Expand

    This game is ass. It’s a random mess of **** flying at you. There is no fun factor at all. It is garbage. I played this on the Xbox. And forThis game is ass. It’s a random mess of **** flying at you. There is no fun factor at all. It is garbage. I played this on the Xbox. And for awhile it was good. 9/10 good! But levels like soggy swamp, desert temple, and a specially fiery forge. I hate this game now, it’s a non stop **** storm, the levels start easy and get alittle harder. Then BOOM fiery forge and desert temple cranks it up to 11. It throws EVERYTHING at you, like cmon, it’s to hard. Desert temple is random, fiery forge is complete ****. The beginning is ok but when you need to get all these things that explode I forgot what it was called, then you run around like a idiot, having all these enimes attack you at all angles. Then when you get to the bossfight, it’s gets nuts... this big ass thing is like the god of all the enimes, this is the final boss, there’s lava everywhere and the map is a mile long, when you respawn, then you have to guess where the location is, then you need to fit threw there and good luck, there’s lava everywhere and minions see you and go like. “Let’s ruin there day!” And then all of them charge at you. And if you run out of arrows, your screwed. Another thing is there’s no map! So if there’s multiple paths that all leads somewhere different. Then I need to do eeny, meeny, miney, moe. It’s dumb. I have nothing to say about final map, haven’t unlocked it yet, and probably never will... CAUSE I HAVE TO BEAT FIERY FORGE AND DESERT TEMPLE WHICH ARE BOTH IMPOSSIBLE. Ok I’m done, this game sucks and goodbye. Impossible levels Expand
