Summary

After setting a phenomenal trend on PC and selling tremendously well on Xbox Live Arcade, Mojang’s incredibly addictive world-creation game Minecraft has made the jump to physical media!

The charm of Minecraft is in its crude, blocky graphics. As you wander about a seemingly empty map, you soon learn to use your trusty pickaxe to chisel away the environment around you. Doing so not only allows you to rebuild the entire map as you see fit, but can also throw up a number of interesting surprises.

Create buildings, caverns, landmarks... you’re only limited by your imagination. If you like, you can invite a bunch of friends along to help you build a masterpiece worthy of showing the entire world. But be quick about it, because at night monsters come out to play, so you need to make sure that you have made preparations for you (and your friends) to stay safe until dawn.

This Xbox One version builds from the massive success of the Xbox 360 version. With Mojang now falling under the Microsoft umbrella, the Minecraft experience looks set to get bigger and bigger. Right off the disc, players get bigger maps for bigger adventures. It also comes with expanded multiplayer features. You can get into the mix with up to four players on a split screen or up to eight players online.
