    That sense of creative progression, coupled with the inherent danger of exploring underground caverns full of monsters, makes Minecraft exciting, rewarding, tense, and one of gaming’s most expressive creative outlets.

    The Minecraft PlayStation 4 Edition is the penultimate version of this game on any console.

    It’s the best console version of one of the most important games of the decade. Some limitations imposed by the platform might annoy hardcore Minecraft fans, but they are not the target group here. [13/2014, p.42]

    It can't top what's on PC, but this is still a fine version of one of modern gaming's defining experiences. [Dec 2014, p.65]
  5. Minecraft PS4 Edition is the best console port ever. A Massive and detailed game world and a cleverly designed interface are waiting you at Minecraft PS4 Edition. İf you have a PS4, don't miss it.

    Minecraft on PS4 and Xbox One finally gets the resolution 1080p and framerate with 60fps. You will miss the mods and contents of PC version, but this edition is perfect for playing in your living room with friends.

    Even without the ability to install mods and play on infinite worlds propped up by dedicated servers, Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition is still a strong addition to your next-gen library.

    It is the same addictive game. If you are new to the game, the concept is, you have no goal, you survive the nights, build things and playIt is the same addictive game. If you are new to the game, the concept is, you have no goal, you survive the nights, build things and play with friends. The ps4 version has larger worlds than the ps3 and 360 edition. it also has a longer view distance. My main complaint with the game is the controls are not as customizable as i would like them to be. i would like to change the way to sprint but i have no way to. i hope to have controller mapping in the future for this game. It is not a good as the pc edition but playing this game on a game console is really nice. The 4 player split screen is great if you want to play multiplayer with friends. Expand

    - Not everything the PC has
    - No public servers, only multiplayer when friends are active

    Overall - Great game, but not the same functions as the PC has

    Its the same addictive gameplay with controls that seem uncomfortable at first but are easy to get use to. The only real complaint is theIts the same addictive gameplay with controls that seem uncomfortable at first but are easy to get use to. The only real complaint is the interface just isn't as efficient on console as it is on PC. But not much the developer could do there. Its a game that makes you forget what time it is. Although its not a game for everyone, due to the fact that it is a game that's really only as fun as you make it, it is a game that I believe would appeal to many gamers. Expand

    It was pretty good but they need to make it so that you can be a baby. So that you don’t have to be a grownup if you don’t want to.
