    Portable Minecraft is Worth it

    While not the definitive edition of the game, Minecraft of the Switch satiates me in an entirely new way. I spent a while contemplating whether or not it was worth it to re-buy a game I already owned on PC and PS4 (knowing full well that it wouldn't include all of the latest features). I'm happy to say that I don't regret my purchase one bit, and I am surprised by how easy it is to get sucked back into a game I've already sunk countless hours into before, now that I have a proper portable version. The Switch version might be a few updates behind, but being able to play it on-the-go with physical controllers definitely made the purchase more than worth the asking price. In my opinion this is as necessary a title on the Switch as Breath of the Wild or Mario Kart are. I mean, it's Minecraft, but the Switch really changes up how and (most importantly) where you play it.

    The Definitive Version

    I have bought Minecraft for pretty much every console that it has been released for, but this is the only version that I have really fully enjoyed (besides PC). Even the Vita version doesn't hold a candle to this edition. I would have gave it 5 stars, but they have removed the mini games such as the battle game. I miss those games from the Wii U version, but apparently you can still play them -- although only through a server with hundreds of people. The game is also kind of unfinished, as they do not allow for custom servers right now but is a promised feature for the future. If you are thinking of getting a Minecraft game and want it portable, this is the version to get.

    Must-Have for Minecraft Fans

    Even if you already have every other edition of Minecraft on every other console, this is a must-have. While I myself do not play Minecraft, my daughter does. I was hesitant to get her the Nintendo Switch Edition because she already has the PS4 Edition, plus both Story Mode games on the PS4, as well as on her tablet. However, the Nintendo theme packs really seem to add a new depth of mining and crafting or whatever the heck you call it. It seems repetitive, which I guess technically it is, but if you or your kids can't get enough Minecraft and you do not already own it for the Switch, I recommend it.

    Kids will not stop playing

    My kiddos worked hard this summer making some extra cash helping out around the house. When they had saved enough money to buy a new switch game, they choose this one without hesitation. Since they have purchased it they never let a day go by without playing for at least 30 minutes. They love the ability to create worlds from scratch and use the split screen mode to work together to build various things for their "house." Highly recommend for any creative youngster that wants to have unlimited sand box potential.

    Same Minecraft, only bigger!

    So far it runs nice on Nintendo Switch. I enjoy being able to have my old maps from the Switch Version in this one, but I still wish we could use maps from other versions as well. The game runs smooth and I haven't noticed many problems, though I didn't try to recover many maps this time around like I did on the Xbox One Bedrock release. If you like Minecraft and want to play with friends on Xbox One, PC, Android, and iOS in the future through crossplay, this may be just what your looking for.

    Minecraft finally gets the latest version.

    Minecraft it is a great game that you can play for hours alone or with other people. That still remains true with this version. This version finally brings the better together update to the Nintendo Switch. Which means Switch players can now play with Xbox One, PC, and phone minecraft players. It also adds the new market place to the Switch. Which means you can spend some extra money if you want to get cool new texture packs, maps or skins that weren't available in the old version.

    Been a while since I played Minecraft, and before I only played it on PC. I love my Switch and thought it would be a perfect place for Minecraft. If you like Minecraft and want to be able to play on the go- this is perfect. It comes with the Super Mario world mash up which is pretty cool, and there are a bunch of additional themed worlds you can purchase. Also comes with several skins- and you can crossplay with players on Xbox and PC (windows only).

    A little complex and not much objective

    This seems like a fun game, but honestly it's a little complex. My 6 year old begged to get this and he likes walking around in the Mario world that is already created, but has no idea how to build or change anything on his own. I'm sure it's too advanced for his age, but I am not real clear on what to do either! I would say this game is good if you have time to invest in learning how to play. It's not a casual play sort of game.

    Minecraft on the go

    I bought this game with the intention of having a nice simple game for long trips as well as the Split Screen capabilities for up to 4 players. Only downfall would be that it can be rather difficult to read menus unless you are playing single player, even on big screens. But if you're looking for a way to play Minecraft without a PC and with the ability to take it on the go, you can't do better than this.

    Another Copy Of the Classic Game

    I really wasn't sure if I wanted to buy Minecraft again, we've bought it on PC, Xbox 360, Xbox 1, Android, and IOS. But I finally gave in and got it for the Switch when it was released physically. I'm glad we did. We have multiple docks and multiple switches. It is nice to easily be able to play this game on any TV in the house. It is also nice to be able to use the Switch to play with people on the Xbox1 or any mobile device.

    Endless hours of building castles, mansions, caves, or just exploring and mining for crafting materials while surfing an endless world filled with enemies...especially the kind that blow not only you, but the things you build up! I could play for hours and get into many different conversations. This game is wonderful with the right friend group. 5/5 stars

    Minecraft has been one my kids favorite games for quite a while. The fact that this version is portable has only added to that. It still retains all the qualities they've enjoyed for years while adding a few cool things to the mix. Nintendo has really outdone themselves with the switch and having good title support makes it well worth the investment!

    Minecraft is a must! I don'the understand the appeal of it but my kids have mine craft for every game system we own, they say this one is the best one ever. One problem I see is that I had to buy another controller. The game is for up to 4 players but even splitting the switch controller into two did not work for multi player mode. Maybe I missed something or not.

    I usually play Minecraft on PC when my brother gets the urge to set up a server. Since its cross platform now, thought I'd try it on Switch this time. It looks and plays very smoothly. Its going to take some getting used to using the second stick for the camera, but otherwise very glad to have this portably.

    Excellent game. Not sure why I waited so long to buy it. If you do not have it currently, go get it! Well worth the price, which is lower then the updated game. However, I suggest you start with this one and buy the updated version once the priced goes down a little. Best Buy is the Best.

    My family has two Nintendo switches, we go over to another family have Minecraft parties where we all play multiplayer. It's a lot of fun. The setup is a little bit of a pain with account set up and friend invites. Once you get the host up and running the party mayhem ensues.

    My niece watches streams on YouTube of Minecraft and hasn't played the Switch in some time. She asked me for the Switch version of Minecraft, and absolutely loved it! I like hearing the mario music and seeing the characters in a pre made server so she can explore and add to it.

    The Switch is great because you can literally play this anywhere with convenience. My husband loves this edition as well because of the Nintendo themes it has available vs on the other systems. He can play for many hours with our daughter too. Fun for all ages.

    My kid loves it. THIS VERSION IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH TRANSFERRING WORLDS FROM WII U. That was the biggest mistake we made. We thought we could transfer worlds. But this version does not support it. It was the older version of this game.

    Have always wanted to try this game. It’s a different type of game than I usually play and of course wasn’t a game of my generation. Totally surprised, both by how bad I was at the start but also how exciting it was to try something new and different. Give it a try!
