Game review: Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition

I had never played Minecraft on the PC, but when it came out on Xbox, I couldn't resist trying it out. I did not regret it. Minecraft is an immensely fun game that has had me hooked for 4 days and counting. The sheer amount of things you can build and do is unbelievable, and while the graphics are definitely what some may call "outdated", it fits the feel of the game. There's nothing particularly complicated about Minecraft, which is what makes it beautiful. You just gather resources to build whatever your heart desires. The game allows lots of player freedom so you can do whatever you want.

While there are monsters in Minecraft, such as zombies and creepers, combat is not the focus of this game. Notch and Mojang managed to pull off a game that is not 100% combat oriented, yet is still endlessly entertaining and has a very high replay value. If you haven't played Minecraft before, whether on PC or Xbox, now is the time to give it a shot. You will not be disappointed.
