    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.

    Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition is a joyous adventure, despite being lighter on content than its other iterations.

    So finally we've got Minecraft on PlayStation 3 and it was well worth the wait.

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

The controls on this game are OK, you get used to it after a couple of hours. The graphics are great and runs smoothly.

    Why is it better on PC? Because the controls are better, it is easier to build and craft. You can find a lot of texture packs that can be installed for free, and you can find many exciting mods that can be really helpful!

    DON'T BUY MINECRAFT ON A CONSOLE.

    This version of the game is nothing compared to what it is on a PC. It's a simple money grab that's no worth your time. The game itself is nothing special but on a computer you can make of it what you want with the help of MODS(free modifications to the game made buy users and enthusiasts). Controlling it with a mouse and keyboard adds a so much needed level of precision, that, by itself makes the game much more enjoyable.

    Do yourself a favor, if you really want to get Minecraft buy the PC release instead.
