Minecraft is by far one of the most fascinating and progressive games ever made, both in terms of its leanings towards procedural generation and emergent gameplay, and the way it has been so openly developed. In an era where the development of most games is a closely-guarded, PR-managed secret, millions were invited to buy and play Minecraft years before it was even finished. This approach has led to an unparalleled amount of useful feedback for the developers, while simultaneously making them a fortune.

At this point I realize that I have only just began to touch on what Minecraft truly contains. The rabbit-hole runs deep indeed, or rather, the mineshaft. Even if you don’t see a reason to try it on the PC, fear not. Ports are on the tracks and scheduled for arrival within the year — an Xbox Live version is promised, while iOS and Android versions are in early release. Minecraft is without a doubt worth the purchase, and even if you don’t immediately see the appeal and decide to go do something else, Minecraft will still be around in the future, with more goodies in its already gargantuan backpack.
Minecraft, the review? It’s impossible. There’s only experiential description to keep this reviewer from falling into a recursive, procedurally generated nightmare of Borgesian proportions (and shuddering at each use of the word “you” in a professional review). If we must, then, score this kind of game, we give it a 90/100. Whether you find joy in creating the Taj Mahal in square-ish blocks, building sky castles with friends in multiplayer, or derive an obscure satisfaction of a good life well lived in Hardcore mode, Minecraft abides. The cost is low and the computer specifications are fairly generous. Mac or PC, you can play this game. And you should.
Minecraft is a wonderfully inventive sandbox game that really deserves the title, as your creation in it is only limited by your imagination and time!

The shortcomings are most likely due to the fact that the game hasn't even hit its beta stage, but even though it doesn't quite seem fully fleshed out, there's no doubt that for an alpha, it has a lot of content. It may not be for everyone, but we'll see when the game goes gold.
Finalement Minecraft est un très bon jeu, bien qu'assez rebutant de par son aspect graphique et son absence d'explications du début à la fin, il saura séduire les joueurs passionnés et débordant de créativité souhaitant découvrir une expérience manquant encore un peu de contenu après tant de développement mais heureusement doté d'une communauté si active compensant largement les défauts du jeu.
Minecraft est un jeu au scénario infini incroyablement innovant. Son qualificatif de sandbox est largement mérité car les uniques freins à cette simulation sont le temps et votre imagination.
