"Game is good, but this "freeware" download is terrible"

January 06, 2012  |  By Haggstrom

 |  Version: Minecraft 1.8.0 beta


The actual game is, as I've heard from friends, awesome.


This "freeware" just opens a "Minecraft Launcher" where you can register an account, but it won't let you play unless you buy the actual game.


You can just as well go to http://www.minecraft.net/download, where it says "When you have bought the game, you can download the stand-alone launcher for Minecraft here." I think it's kind of a lie to make people believe you can actually download Minecraft on this page.
