All in all, this feels like an excellent port of one of the best PC titles in recent years. If you’ve missed out on the PC version of the game for whatever reason, do yourself a favor and check this out. And if you’re a PC Minecraft veteran, but want to school your console friends on your Minecraft knowledge, then you’ll be happy to know that game makes the transition to consoles without a hitch. It’s a great port of a great game, and well worth picking up.

4J has turned in an accomplished port, boasting crisp, high-resolution visuals and a reorganised inventory. We noticed the odd minor bug, like items that refuse to craft, but it's nothing you should lose sleep over. It's pushing it to say that this is the definitive version - thanks to Microsoft's certification procedures, the PC game will probably benefit from more frequent updates, and how Mojang intends to handle user mods like custom textures remains to be seen. In terms of console sims, though, nothing touches it. Minecraft's world is one that everybody should experience.

XboxAddict (9.6 out of 10)

There have been some games that are horrible rip offs that offer nothing but an excuse to be robbed of your Microsoft Points, but then there are the games that stand alone as iconic masterpieces of work that provide gamers with countless hours of enjoyment. It's very rare to find a game that perfects the minute details of simple actions and turns it into a work of art. Whats even more shocking is that there have been games that have been in development for over ten years that don't even come close to the quality of this game, and it's an arcade game at that. Granted it may have a high price point, but if you think about other amazing works of art such as: A Ferrari, a Renoir painting, fine champagne you'll discover that beauty of that caliber pays top dollar. Minecraft possess all the qualities of a masterpiece, and a top tier price tag to compliment it, but one thing is for sure, it's worth every penny.

Minecraft ist und bleibt ein Mega-Phänomen. Und vielleicht ist es das gerade deshalb, weil man es nicht richtig in ein Genre einordnen kann. Adventure, Survival Horror, Open World, Sandbox, Rollenspiel, Aufbauspiel, Landwirtschaftssimulator, Strategie – in dem “kleinen” Indie-Titel steckt mehr drin als in manch großem AAA-Titel. Jetzt bleibt nur noch zu hoffen, dass per Update auch noch weitere Features integriert werden, die in der PC-Version schon lange zum Alltag gehören.

Mojang heeft met zijn Xbox 360 versie van Minecraft weer een pareltje in handen. De vertrouwde gameplay is terug met daarbij het speciale craftmenu en de introductie voor nieuwe spelers. Ook de split-screen voegt een extra dimensie toe aan de game, zeker nu het aanbod van co-op games begint te vermageren. Het is jammer dat we nog niet met de volledige, meest recente PC-versie van de game aan de slag kunnen. Maar zoals Mojang al liet weten zal het beide platformen zo snel mogelijk met de meest recente versie voorzien. Zo kunnen we dus nu al uitkijken naar wat de PC al heeft, en dat allemaal zonder extra te hoeven betalen.

Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition n'a rien d'une version bridée, et délivre même une expérience très proche du jeu d'origine. Moyennant un tarif amplement justifié de 1600 MS points, elle vous offre un gameplay superbement adapté au support, un mode Survival plein et entier et des possibilités multijoueurs permettant de vivre l'expérience à plusieurs, en local comme en ligne. Son seul défaut notable est la refonte du système de craft, qui ne laisse plus la même place à la découverte et à l'expérimentation. Cette concession imputable au jeu au pad (ou au diktat de l'accessibilité ?) ne devrait pas vous gêner outre mesure tant le concept sollicite toujours autant votre ingéniosité et votre créativité. A moins d'y être réfractaire, vous ne devez manquer ce titre sous aucun prétexte.

It doesn't have to be, though. Minecraft already exists in that form and has millions of evangelists; the phenomenon happened, it doesn't need to happen again. All this version means is that you no longer have an excuse for not joining in.

Iedereen heeft een andere ervaring in Minecraft. Wij vonden het bijvoorbeeld grappig om als uitdaging op een woestijnachtige kaart te spelen met amper grondstoffen. Het resultaat na uren werken: we staan 's nachts op het dak van een enorm glazen huis, uitkijkend op onze zelf gemaakte paradijselijke tuin. Een sereen meer en de omgeving verlicht met toortsen, terwijl tientallen zombies ons huis grommend omsingelen. De zon stijgt op, de muziek zwelt aan... en de zombies vliegen massaal in de fik door het zonlicht. Een uniek beeld in een uniek spel.

Minecraft on the Xbox Live Arcade is an addicting and rewarding experience, assuming you are willing to put the time into the experience. This is one of those games where you will truly get out whatever you put into the game, and that can be both good and bad. If you put in the time and dedication though, you will discover one of the most enjoyable gaming experiences ever.

Nel bene nel male è un titolo a cui tutti dovrebbero dare un'occhiata almeno una volta, non solo per una mera questione di "cultura videoludica", ma anche perché è un gioco da cui tutti possono ricavare un'esperienza. Non importa quanto siate bravi o fantasiosi, qualcosa uscirà sempre fuori, e sarà qualcosa di vostro, unico, perché Minecraft non fa altro che fornivi una carta eccellente e una bellissima penna.

PC Invasion (INC Gamers) (9 out of 10)

In short, Minecraft 360 is a slightly older, self-contained version of Minecraft. It has a deftly handled new user-interface and control scheme, a guided version of the crafting system, a handy tutorial and split-screen co-op; none of which the PC release can offer. However, if you’re looking for endless maps, modding opportunities, ‘discovery’ based crafting and the latest, greatest updates for the game, the PC version is the one you need. Either way you’ll end up with a version of Minecraft, so debates about version specifics will fade into insignificance when you start work on that mighty Linker Ziggurat.

It might be big, complicated and unrestricted, but Minecraft is an example of the possibilities of gamers rather than their games, and its towering success has been accomplished without alienation or elitism. 4J Studios has played its part in one of gaming's grandest success story with affable competence, allowing console owners to grab their tools and build something in Mojang's intricate and lovable world.

GameOver (Greece) (9 out of 10)

Καθώς πρόκειται για παλιότερη έκδοση του Minecraft από αυτή που κυκλοφορεί αυτή τη στιγμή για το PC, απουσιάζουν ορισμένα χαρακτηριστικά, όπως η ανάγκη για φαγητό και το level-up, ενώ το creative mode λάμπει διά της απουσίας του. Εδώ γίνεται εμφανής και μια μεγάλη έλλειψη του Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition: ενώ θα δέχεται συχνά updates από τη Mojang (κάτι που δεν είναι δεδομένο σε ένα παιχνίδι κονσόλας με τον τρόπο που είναι στο PC), δεν υπάρχει τρόπος να δεχθεί mods, ένα από τα χαρακτηριστικά που απογείωσαν το game στο PC και συνέβαλαν στη δημιουργία της τεράστιας κοινότητάς του. Αυτό σημαίνει ότι οι παίκτες που παίζουν το παιχνίδι αποκλειστικά στο 360, μπορεί να νιώσουν “φτωχοί συγγενείς” σε σχέση με το PC. Από την άλλη, ωστόσο, αν έχετε 360 και θέλατε πάντοτε να ζήσετε την εμπειρία του Minecraft, έχετε τώρα μια πρώτης τάξεως ευκαιρία, και πλέον, καμμία δικαιολογία να μην ζήσετε αυτή τη μοναδική gaming εμπειρία.

The Controller Online (9 out of 10)

Much like Seinfeld was a show about nothing, but was one of the most hilarious shows ever, Minecraft is a video game about nothing, but will keep you busy and entertained for hours. If building a world out of blocks sounds boring to you, then you have come to the wrong place and you could easily get two other games on the Xbox Live Arcade for your 1600 MS Points. On the other hand, if you are creative, have tons of patience and love video games that let you create, then you will love Minecraft, even if you never really figure out what to do next.

Multiplayer.it (9 out of 10)

La release di partenza, non equivalente allo stato di evoluzione della controparte PC, è probabilmente data dai tempi richiesti per il porting ma anche in quest'ottica le intenzioni del buon Notch sembrano essere quelle di donare anche all'utenza console un'esperienza in costante evoluzione. L'ottima traduzione dei comandi sul pad e le piccole ma funzionali modifiche apportate non snaturano affatto la bontà del progetto, ma anzi contribuiscono a farne esprimere il massimo potenziale in questa nuova dimensione videoludica. Già allo stato attuale, quindi, Minecraft per Xbox 360 vanta una maturità e una solidità di gameplay di tutto rispetto, in virtù delle quali non possiamo che consigliare l'acquisto a chiunque sia disposto a investire moltissime ore nell'esplorazione e nel crafting più selvaggio. Mantenendo sempre un occhio attento al tramontare del sole per anticipare l'avanzare delle tenebre.

So should you buy Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition? Well, that depends on what you want from the game. If you want to play Minecraft with your LIVE friends, this is a no-brainer. If you've never played Minecraft in your life because you're simply not a PC gamer, then now you have a chance to make amends; buy the game as soon as humanly possible. The only people who will be disappointed are those who are hoping this is going to be an upgrade from the PC version. While it might feel to veterans like a dumbed down version of the game they love, it has still managed to retain that special quality that got us hooked in the beginning. And really, that's what counts here, isn't it?

Those shortcomings aside, Minecraft more than delivers in most other ways. I’ve always been a fan of games that emphasize exploration and freedom, and that’s what Minecraft is at its core. I absolutely love the feeling I get from scaling a blocky mountain and seeing a wide-open expanse of pure possibility in the distance. It was revelatory when it was released on PC, and Xbox 360 players now have a chance to experience all the wonder that Minecraft offers.

In the end, Minecraft is a simple game that is only as deep as the player decides to make it. With strangely addictive and fun gameplay, made even more enjoyable when shared with friends, Minecraft is a game that every gamer should experience. With the lack of the customisation and overall support of the PC version, veterans may find the game a tad gimped, at least for the time being. But for newcomers, or strictly console gamers, The Xbox 360 version is the perfect time to jump in.

Minecraft on Xbox is almost as good as the PC version. It’s still a great way to express yourself, but the lack of some of the PC features like mods and Creative Mode is disappointing. The vastly improved crafting interface and smooth online play make it easier to get into than ever before, which should open up Minecraft to a whole new audience. If you long to be creative and express yourself in a videogame, and don’t mind being dropped into a sandbox that lacks stereotypical game goals, Minecraft is one of the greatest options available.

GameWatcher / Strategy Informer (8.5 out of 10)

To those who already know what Minecraft is, then the 360 version may seem a bit bare, but then this version isn’t really for you. 4J Studios’ adaptation fits in perfectly with the Arcade theme, and we hope there’s framework in place to slowly add in content and features, much like what they’re doing with the PC SKU. As we outlined above, once the initial ‘oooooo’ factor wears off, singleplayer does get a bit tiresome if you haven’t got a purpose, but then all you need is a couple of online friends or someone in your own house to share the experience with, and it becomes fun again. Now you’ll know what all the fuss was about too.

Minecraft on Xbox 360 is a superb package that is well worth the inflated XBLA price tag. For $20 you get so much content that it is hard to argue the value, especially considering it is cheaper than on PC, and now more accessible for players without a gaming rig. Sure, it may not be as involved as the PC version, and the lack of constant updates and mods is disappointing, but the sheer content already included is more than enough. If you check out the demo and enjoy the premise, this game is a must own. There is simply so much to see and do here; you can literally get lost for months.

In the future, this version of the game will live and die by the frequency and robustness of those promised updates and the extent to which they catch the game up to the progress of the PC original. The 360 Edition is a bit steep by Xbox standards at $20, though the PC version now costs a bit more (and some outlets seem to be selling this one for less, anyway). If you're reading this review at all, you probably own at least one platform, ranging from PC to Mac to the iPhone or Android, that Minecraft already runs on, but here and now, the 360 game offers enough value for block-building neophytes to justify its existence in a world where Minecraft has already seemingly been wallpapered everywhere you look for the last couple of years.

Neulinge sind auf der Konsole mit Abstand besser aufgehoben! Denn nur auf Xbox 360 erklärt das Spiel wichtige Zusammenhänge und erlaubt endlich das bequeme Herstellen neuer Gegenstände ohne Sekundärliteratur. Auch auf Konsole graben sie tief unter Tage nach Mineralien, stellen Waffen und Proviant selbst her, bekämpfen Monster und errichten prachtvolle Zuhause. Langzeit-Abenteurer werden allerdings wichtige Bausteine vermissen, die am PC selbstverständlich sind. So ist die Welt nicht unendlich, sondern auf eine überschaubare Fläche begrenzt. Die Illusion echter Freiheit entsteht daher nicht. Auch fehlen weitere Klimazonen, Landwirtschaft, Viehzucht, das Brauen von Tränken sowie das Verzaubern von Gegenständen. Im Kern ist es eine Version, die auf PC und Mac seit einem Jahr veraltet ist.

Det er alltid delte meninger om spill som gjør noe utenom det vanlige, og Minecraft er intet unntak. Konseptet appellerer rett og slett ikke til alle. Spillet har ingen konkrete mål, utenom de du setter selv. Hvis du kun kjøper spillet fordi du liker tanken på å slåss mot zombier vil du sannsynligvis bli skuffet – overlevelseselementet betyr nemlig mindre og mindre jo mer du spiller.

The Telegraph ( )

Though Minecraft is renowned for being an extensive world in its own right, 64,000 kilometres, in fact, it's reduced significantly here. Xbox players are likely to find the 'end of the world' much sooner than they'd like, too, with the port's maps being a tiny 1024x1024 blocks. However, as 4J and Mojang promise to keep patching the console version, it's hopeful that both map size and version will update and grow. There'll always be limitations on console, and it's highly unlikely the game will ever compare to it's PC counterpart, but this is an impressive port and a brilliant game regardless. It's made even more of an ominous time-glutton by having you sprawled out on the sofa, pad in hand, mind, so be careful.

While plenty of concessions were made to bring Minecraft to the Xbox 360, it's good to see that the overall depth and flexibility that made the original so engaging aren't completely sacrificed.

But is the core foundation still a lot of fun? Absolutely--if you temper your expectations.

With so much missing, the experience between this new version and the PC version is huge. Veteran players will find using the controller and easy server setup to be the only features worth talking about. It is a shame that they will find so much to dislike or hope for. It is really hard to recommend that PC players buy this one as well. Right now, I’d stay on your desktop or laptop. If you have never played Minecraft before, then you’ll enjoy the building aspect of this game immensely. Minecraft is a great game that has suffered from slow development and creators who put too much on their plate before finishing a project. I hope that 4J and Microsoft are ready to tackle these issues and make the 360 version of Minecraft a huge success. I just don’t see it at release.

Alla som har en fungerande dator bör helt enkelt skaffa Minecraft på det formatet. För PC-hatare, soffälskare och splitscreen-spelare är detta däremot ett väldigt bra val. Personligen saknar jag tyvärr alldeles för många funktioner för att konvertera mitt grävande till konsol.

Splitkick (7 out of 10)

The hardcore may look at these minor concessions as a “dumbing down” for the console crowd, but it honestly assists with accessibility. That’s a good thing in terms of helping define direction for a new player, or as a reminder for someone like me who hasn’t played in a long time. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is a wonderfully crafted title full of the experimentation, adventure, and creation of its big brother.

Med Microsofts tungere godkendelsesproces på patches og udvidelser vil vi nok næppe i samme grad som på PC og iOS bliver overstrøet med opdateringer, men man må da håbe at Creative-delen er i støbeskeen. Det kan jeg dog ikke anmelde ud fra.

Du som däremot nöjer dig med ett sparsmakat alternativ, kräver handkontroll, kan bortse från att det charmiga crafting-systemet är som bortblåst och vill spela på delad skärm har mycket att hämta här.

Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) (5.5 out of 10)

If Minecraft on the PC is the video game equivelent of LEGO, then Minecraft on XBLA is Duplo. It’s a perfect introduction to the game and its experience—but it won’t take long for you to outgrow it and want the real thing.
