    "Addictive game; you will forget which world you are in!"

    August 20, 2012  |   By patchuk


    There are many pros to this game!
    #There is a great online community dedicated to it
    #There is much support for errors etc.
    #A constantly updated game, a new set of things every month
    #Easy to play - for the architects and the survivalists
    #Many different modifications to do anything you want!
    #Everything is free past the first purchase (plus it is non reoccurring)
    #You have entire worlds to explore! Travel to distant mountains and dig into amazing underground caverns, strongholds, abandoned mine shafts, villages and much more.
    #Create anything! I have made personally castles, cities, massive mines and may other creations (and so can you!)
    #The sky is not the limit, now you can build higher than the clouds!
    #Trading, fighting, mining and living with others across the globe can be done.
    #Minecraft worlds can become alternative natural art, the map generation will make you feel like you are in the last undiscovered place on earth!

    There are so many things to list!


    #Crashes are not a common at all but an unexpected event.
    #If you have a slow computer you will have to put up with low viewing distances and non-dynamic lighting

    And, WARNING, you will become annoyed by something, your house blowing up, burning; you drowning, starving etc.


    I am totally addicted to Minecraft - it has become my home from home in my home! The only game where you can express your creativity and live like you maybe can't. Believe me, once you are into it you will look at the world and go "ppfft! I could do better on Minecraft"
    It is a never ending solution to perpetual boredom.

    ~Have fun~

    PS. to all whom are complaining about it not being free - not everything in life it free!
    Was your computer free? You house, your TV that gives you less entertainment that this game does (Well, that's what I think)

    the complaints stem from the fact that cnet page informs us that it is in fact free, and apparently, it is not. dishonesty and lying are free in life - this game is not.

    I like your comment on life not being free. Seems like the newer generation thinks music, art, programs shouldn't cost anything. So, are THEY willing to work for free??
