Indie Game Magazine (Dec 24, 2011)
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.
Out Of Eight (Nov 28, 2011)
The addictive nature of Minecraft cannot be denied, as exploring, manipulating, and constructing your world is a fascinating experience. However, common features expected in a released product are missing, such as extensive in-game help and more rounded online components.

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.
Common Sense Media (2011)
It’s easy to see why Minecraft has ballooned in popularity. The experience is wholly compelling for those with a creative itch. Mining resources from the earth and turning them into easily usable materials employed in the construction of nearly anything the player can imagine is enormously satisfying. However, getting started can prove tricky. There are no instructions. Part of the fun comes from discovery and experimentation, but less patient players could lose interest before they find out how much fun it can be to build a dream house or an intricate maze of mining shafts and tunnels. We recommend consulting online guides designed to help beginners, such as those at minecraftwiki.net. Once you know what you’re doing, you’ll be hard pressed to leave your computer without placing just one more block.

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.
