    While it has some smaller performance issues, the fantastic open-ended main appeal and gameplay of this modern classic really make up it. Minecraft is a legendary game that is best played on Playstation Vita.

    Minecraft: Vita Edition is yet another fantastic port of Minecraft, and yet another top-notch game you can add to the Vita’s library.

    Minecraft is a huge, absorbing game that thrives on imagination and creativity. It's now on handheld with very few compromises.

    The best possible way to bring m=Minecraft to a handheld device. There are some technical limitations, but the possibility to play the game everywhere you want with solid controls makes this one of the best versions of Minecraft available today.
  5. User friendly interface and very helpful tutorial... But, Minecraft PS Vita is an exact copy of PS4 edition. We expected more from PS Vita version of the game.

    A few technical limitations show that Vita may still not be the ideal platform to play on - but for now it is by far the best handheld option available.

    The PS Vita Edition of Minecraft plays well on limited hardware and includes touchscreen support, but one glaring issue keeps it from being a must-buy on Sony’s handheld.

It is possibly the best way to experience Minecraft on the go.Minecraft: Playstation Vita Edition is the definitive version for this game. It is possibly the best way to experience Minecraft on the go. The reason I state this is because, personally, I absolutely despise touchscreen controls on tablets and smartphones. The portability to play Minecraft is constantly ruined by dirty touchscreens and high friction between the screen and the fingers. However, the Playstation Vita, where it has touchscreens and buttons, offers that portability, and it's done in a magnificent way.

    I won't go into much detail about Minecraft since the Vita version is basically the same as all the other versions. I will, however, mention the certain technical issues that exist within the PS Vita edition. First of all, the frame-rate will drop when the game is loading the map while you're playing as well as certain graphical issues that can interfere with the loading. Also, when you buy a texture pack, there will be times where you select the purchased texture pack for your world, and the game crashes. Other than those details, I think this is the best way to experience Minecraft on the go.

    The controls work as well as they should be, the graphics are as sharp and crisp as the console and PC versions, and the game runs as well as your PC would. Overall, I highly recommend this game for the Playstation Vita.

    I would buy a vita if the only game available for it was Minecraft. It is just such an amazing, deep (mining pun), and fun game. If you haveI would buy a vita if the only game available for it was Minecraft. It is just such an amazing, deep (mining pun), and fun game. If you have played it on last Gen it is the same game you can pop to same save back and forth between ps3 and Vita. You will notice a graphical difference between vita and next gen, but Minecraft isn't about the graphics anyway. If you've only ever play it via pocket edition it is exponentially better. Come on folks get it, just go get it. Full Review »
