    Reshaping a pristine landscape into new world 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.

    A beautiful edition of a game that's still great. Hi-res, very good multiplayer support, Minecraft for Xbox One is unmissable.

    Larger map size is the key feature of this greatly appreciated next-gen update of Minecraft.

    Much like going from a rustic shelter to a statuesque castle, Minecraft: Xbox One Edition will only offer more in time, with future updates adding even more hours to a game already brimming with near-endless potential.

    It seems pointless praising a game everyone knows is great, but this version provides a much more stable gaming experience.

    This creative toolbox didn’t lose any of its magic. Minecraft doesn’t need level-ups, xp, buffs or special abilities to motivate – it captivates with its sheer openness and endless creativity.

    This new version of Minecraft features a deeper field of view, a really smooth frame rate and a 1080p definition. The game is the same since 2011, and it's fabulous, but it's not for everyone.

    My kids love this, downloaded and played from day one. The ability to play split side by side is awesome, no fighting for whos turn it is. IMy kids love this, downloaded and played from day one. The ability to play split side by side is awesome, no fighting for whos turn it is. I also purchase a couple packs, a skin pack for my son who wanted to be a squid and the candy texture pack for my daughter who loves pink. This is how games should be, low cost, download, buy extras for $1 or $2. Rather than $90 and $30 DLC items. Im sure if this game was $80 I still would have purchased it, but its worthy of a 10 score for value, playability, replayability and minecraft awesomeness. Expand

    Minecraft is an amazing adventure that has you playing for hours upon hours and has unlimited possibilities. Gathering materials from the landMinecraft is an amazing adventure that has you playing for hours upon hours and has unlimited possibilities. Gathering materials from the land and mines below the earth allows you to create what ever you want, and it's fun doing it. The world is absolutely huge and will take a VERY long time to explore the whole thing. The graphics is what makes the game unique, everything is pixelated and everything is made of blocks. Mining can be very fun but if some of those can run on forever, and it becomes overwhelming. If this happens I usually get lost and frustrated then I give up. The game is never complete, it keeps getting updated and new stuff is always added. Overtime, a lot of the stuff they added was too much, and I didn't like it because the game was loosing its roots of just simple mining, gathering, and building. Now there's enchanting, potion brewing, and many more items and mobs. It's not all bad, I actually like some of the new textures, biomes, and objects. But is the game gonna ever be 100% done? Minecraft is an addicting open world game with many things to do in it, and you'll never get bored. Expand

    Tbh this game is in my top five games of all time. But my one main problem with it is the micro transactions. But other then that its amazing.

    The best selling game of all time presents an amazing time into the gaming industry which has been attempted by other gaming companies butThe best selling game of all time presents an amazing time into the gaming industry which has been attempted by other gaming companies but never on the same level as minecraft. Survival started to feel way too easy but is now more challenging thanks to the addition of new mobs. The massive content updates are great but are too infrequent and much of the games new content loses it's charm quickly Expand

    Wasnt sure where to put this but since this version of the game is basically the same as windows 10 one i will put it here. Mojong areWasnt sure where to put this but since this version of the game is basically the same as windows 10 one i will put it here. Mojong are thieves. I had expected that realms would play like the normal game as i was unable to try my free trail of realms due to life things. i was caught unawares by the fact that not only does it suck hard but you cant get your money back for time you don't want on a realm, meaning if they have your money for half a year and you find out how bad realms are well they are keeping it screw you. To further infuriate me they seem to be blocking comments about how bad realms are i can only assume to get more people to waste their money.
    This wouldn't even be such an issue but the game runs better hosting locally from a fking xbox then on the realm, WTH how are you going to charge me for a service that is worse then what i could already get. The render distance is super low making it pointless to build anything of size since you wont be able to see it and flying on creative mode is pointless since you cant see anything to fly to it, basically its garbage. I bought half a year so i could play a world with my kids that they could work on when i was at work but they get lost in two seconds cause the entire world is covered in fog and Mojong wants me to know that i cant have my money back for the following months or even complain to them about this.
    The sad part is even though this version of the game is inferior the java one its still really good, but i cant support a game like this when the company wont even allow people to talk about the problems they have, i feel like i have been robbed, i paid them expecting one thing, got another and now i cant even ask for my money back never mind get it.
