    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.

    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]

    Minecraft is finally available for the PlayStation 4 and it's still a great game. With a bigger world and more view-distance, Minecraft is a perfect game for both beginners and PS3-veterans, though the game doesn't offer anything new.

    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.

    All issues aside, Minecraft brings to consoles what PC gamers have had for a long time, and the challenge this time around is only trumped by what can be created. The modern-day libertarian's dream has finally landed on consoles, and newcomers and veterans alike would be foolish to pass it up.

    This version of the game enhances the technical threshold Minecraft has on consoles by putting gamers first while being faithful to the original formula without unnecessary or worthless additions. Having said that, this Minecraft has fewer elements than the PC and mobile versions.

    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.

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. Full Review »
