    Minecraft Dungeons is a great game for newcomers of the genre, the series, and veteran players alike. Only slightly held back by its lacklustre graphics in handheld mode, this dungeon crawler is definitely worth a go.

    All in all, Minecraft Dungeons is a lot fun. Coming from more of a Diablo background, I wasn’t sure how well the simplified mechanics would jive with me, but I was pleasantly surprised. Everything about Minecraft Dungeons, from the enemies to the environments to the increased emphasis on higher-quality items, oozes a charming Minecraft feel. A few minor performance issues hold it back slightly, but not enough to keep me from coming back for a lot more.

    Minecraft Dungeons isn't the deepest, most complex game ever, but it definitely keeps you busy and invested long enough to get to the end a few times as the developers intended. And if you're looking for some company, you can bring in local or online friends to play with you. The game was released as a budget title, and it's worth the price. If you enjoy the action of games like Diablo and are down for a simpler version of that same fun, Minecraft Dungeons is a good choice.

    Mojang and Double Eleven offer us a fun game, with nice mechanics, easy to understand, but surely they could have done more. Is the game fun? Yes, although a little more content is missing. We trust that the content that is on the way will continue to entertain us for a longer time.

    At its heart, Minecraft Dungeons is the sort of release that feels like it rides on the coattails of greater games a little too much. If this game did not have the Minecraft branding, it’s not much of a leap to assume that it would scarcely garner any attention based purely on its own merits. The gear system, combat, level design, and presentation is all fine and entertaining in its own right, but there’s little here that we could point to that elevates this game alongside or above peers such as Torchlight II, Diablo III or Path of Exile. Bearing this in mind, we’d give Minecraft Dungeons a very light recommendation to those of you looking for a surface-level introduction to the ARPG genre or for something to play in co-op with the kids. If that doesn’t describe you, then we’d suggest going with either Torchlight II or Diablo III, which both offer a more substantial and fulfilling experience of this genre.

    Although it is not usual in the style of Minecraft, the truth is that it has a lot of power which in the future may become a very good dungeon game.

Providing simpleMinecraft has struggled to branch out from it’s original outing but seems to have finally found a good footing with Dungeons. Providing simple but satisfying gameplay yet still offering varying levels of difficulty. It’s shortcoming mostly come in the form of a weak story and exploration that rarely offers much reward.

However, there are several issues that prevent me from rating the game any higher, which are: the geat and artifacts being completely random, lack of content, the complete inability to pause the game, and the lack of crossplay at launch. Crossplay is coming soon, but there is literally a glitch that allows people to do crossplay, which means the only reason this game doesn't have it is because it was specifically coded so that crossplay would be impossible. Just release it already. The framerate isn't the best but is definitely good enough. A lower graphics option with better fps would've been nice. Expand

The game at best is a pretty good Diablo clone, and at its worseAn overall disappointing experience - seems like a lot of wasted potential. The game at best is a pretty good Diablo clone, and at its worse its a Minecraft spin-off that has almost nothing to with Minecraft apart from the title.

    There are no mechanics carried over from Minecraft - no crafting, no destructible environments, no ability to build structures - and many features such as The Nether, Mushroom Bios, Ice Bios etc are absent as well. Also, only a few items such as the pickaxes and fishing rods are real items from original Minecraft, every other item is a new item made for this game, it doesn't feel like Minecraft, just feels like a Minecraft re-skin of a game totally irrelevant to the source game.

    The core game has a lot of polish, don't get me wrong. Game is a lot of fun to play, and the enchanting system allows for lots of diverse play-styles and customisation. Levels although repetitive are fun, the loot system is well balance, good variety of enemies, great visuals and music etc. However, the game is tiny, the story is almost non-existent, the gameplay is not good enough to warrant a second play through and the fact that there is DLC already despite the small size is a real low blow as well.

    I'm kind of just confused as to why this exists? If you're not going to bring anything from Minecraft except a superficial reproduction of its exterior then why even bother? I can't help but feel this is a cheap cash in rather than a creative spin-off title. Not a bad game by any means, but not worth purchasing I'd say.

    A game is foremost supposed to be fun and that is where Minecraft Dungeons fails the most it is just not fun from the second half on. It isA game is foremost supposed to be fun and that is where Minecraft Dungeons fails the most it is just not fun from the second half on. It is difficult to put your finger onto the reasons. I guess it is a combination of the fighting not beeing fluid, the weird skill system, if one can call it that and bad balancing. Other than that for a long time Diablo and Path of Exile player like me this game just not has what it would need to satisfy my need for hunting better gear and min-maxing my character. However, I still could live with that if the game just would be fun! Expand
