    My son loves it. I got him setup in creative mode and without and XBox Live account he is going to town and building :-). Great to play on the big screen. Highly recommend. He still enjoys playing on the iMac but I have to say there is something to playing on the console and on the TV.

    The Minecraft you expect, now on Next-Gen

    I'd definitely say that this is the best version of the game to buy, and I say that for a few reasons: - Microsoft now owns the rights to the Minecraft franchise, so Microsoft consoles will be getting the game updates (which include new features, items, worlds, texture/skin packs, etc.) first. - When compared to the Xbox 360 version, this version features sharper graphics, more players per world, and a more vast/infinite landscape/ceiling height. - Unlike the PC version of this game, the Xbox One version easily allows for split-screen couch co-op that will allow families/friends to build worlds together. I never thought I would advocate for a couch co-op game again after the Xbox 360/PS3 generation of consoles truly revolutionized online multiplayer for consoles, but this game actually allows for a seamless and unobtrusive split-screen experience that brings Minecraft multiplayer to players that prefer offline play. Overall, other than the lack of mods that are available to PC players, the Xbox One version represents the complete package for Minecraft veterans and newcomers alike. I've heard lots of people complain that there aren't enough family friendly or game-night games on the new generation of consoles, but I think that this game can easily be in each of those categories.

    As a child you played with wooden or plastic blocks to create what you saw in the world around you — a house, a car, a bridge, a cement mixer. In high school, you built lamps, signs and more in shop class. You've also constructed full worlds, filled with realistic people simulating real life. Now, you can go back to your childlike roots and build with blocks again — but this time they're virtual blocks, and you can use them to create vibrant, 3D worlds that are filled with adventure and the magic of imagination. Get ready to build whatever pops into your mind when you jump into the 3D, eight-bit worlds of Minecraft. Brought to life on your Xbox One, Minecraft lets you flex and hone your creative might as you construct literally any and everything you can think of. Grab your controller and start stacking virtual blocks to build the open-world of your dreams. Just make sure to make a shelter before nightfall, as that's when the monsters emerge. Are you ready to construct the world of your dreams in nostalgic, eight-bit fashion?

    Parents need to know that Minecraft is an open-ended, exploration and creation focused environment. One of the best-selling, independently developed and published video games, We bought this for our 8 year old. Players can create items and buildings from scratch using materials they harvest from the world around them. There is no story, but players will encounter aggressive monsters they can fight using swords and bows. Graphics are extremely blocky, and there is no blood or gore, but the creatures can be a bit scary when they moan or appear seemingly out of nowhere. Parents should note that this game has a thriving online community hosted by private, non-moderated servers. This means players could encounter offensive content in the form of profane text messages and suggestively shaped player-created structures, although players don't have to engage in online activity to enjoy the game.

    This is a very good gaming choice for people with an Xbox, it has great visuals and comes with mini-games that are loads of fun to play by yourself and with friends. It also has amazing multiplayer quality that doesn’t make the game lag or glitch while playing with other people. The game also allows you to be creative and teach you to balance and save your resources while at the same time go on awesome adventures and get creative building structures. Another good advantage is that it teaches you a few parts of architecture like measurements and area. I recommend this to people of all ages that like to be “out of the box”.

    Creative Outlet and Adventure

    I purchased this after watching five hours of playthroughs on YouTube. I figured since I don't have control of anything that gets casted to my television why not get the game for the kid to play instead of watching someone else play. It's a creative outlet for anyone with the patience to collect and build a vision in their head. There is a creative mode which doesn't require the need to collect items. Everything is at your disposal, which in my opinion takes some of the fun out of the game. Ensure you have a code lock on purchases for the console otherwise you will receive wrist notifications from Microsoft thanking you for purchase.

    For consoles that is! This game has an endless amount of play, recommend playing with friends/family, solo play- though possible just so much time consumption for one life to waste on! Pretty fun once you get your personal touches on your world. Be aware life passes you by heavily with this game, payout is rewarding but Computer version is still better but with many updates they are closing that gap. None the less with extra dlc available to spice up the look and feel this is great version. Lastly final thoughts, billion hours have been played on this game, imagine if we all went outside and played in our neighborhoods like the old days! Good day. -got this on sale at bestbuy for $14.99 this game NEVER goes on sale. Only buy when it does!

    Bought this copy and ended up buying the digital one to download. My suggestion is not to buy the disk and just get the digital. There were issues with updating it and purchases in the store not always showing up when we used the disk. Now, having the downloaded/digital version, there have been no more issues. So, I recommend the game, but not the disk version.

    I bought this for my granddaughter and loves playing it on our XBOX ONE I also got on sale during Black Friday. I myself don't understand the facination that she has with this game, for me the graphics look more out dated and blocky looking for my taste, she explained that it is supposed to be like this. For myself, I prefer the Battlefield One that came with this game. But for Minecraft game it was a great buy at $19.99 and keeps our Granddaughter entertained whenever she comes over to visit.

    The game was an update for my kids moving from XBOX 360 to XBOX One. Seems better (looks better). Kids have enjoyed it. Only issue is why have they not opened the game up more like the PC/MAC versions. My kids are always asking for maps, add-ons, etc. but the only seem possible using convoluted hacks. I am certainly not an expert, so this may be a misunderstanding on my part. Microsoft sells some add-ons in the XBOX store but would think they would try to expand their offerings. There is a huge market if they can port some of the cool stuff to the console and make it easy for parents who don't want to deal with game issues.

    I originally bought the download card for this game. I was not able to download the game from that purchase because I didn’t have “the code” (which is on a separate piece of receipt paper, not the card or receipt, and I wasn’t given it at the register). I was unable to resolve the issue and bought this physical copy to finally get the game.

    What a nice, mostly safe, children's game. As you know games are hard to come by for little ones. There are a couple of creepy elements like red eyes and zombies. The risk is minimal to parents' worrying about nightmares. On the Pro side: VERY ENTERTAINING! It draws the imagine out of our 2 girls. They play farm with the animals, they learn how elements (in game items) could work together like cooking or create items or fire. I like the clean up part where they just save and turn off the console!

    I have this game on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One digitally and it's a great game for relaxation and fun. It has online co-op as well as split screen. The game very easy to play, while having multiple areas to explore that can increase in difficulty if you choose to play that way. I brought the disk version as a graduation gift for a child with autism. He loves the game so much, the he plays it everyday. More so than the other games he has. If you want a nice, fun, and relaxing for you, your family, or loved one, this is it.

    I primarily bought this game to introduce it to my fiance. As she does not game much at all, I thought this would be a great introduction to gaming - and I was right. This is the same game you can download digitally, and the recent updates have kept up with the PC version. This is great to just turn on and play around with - just to kill time or spend hours with friends making buildings and exploring caves. I absolutely adore this game and I would recommend it to anyone.

    It is minecraft you build stuff that will possibly be broken by other friends stuff. You rebuild your stuff and stay alive,essentially screaming because you have 5 diamonds and see a skeleton and you have half a heart you most likely make it home. Is good game also there is a creative mode oh yea and adventure which is a version of survival and it is not that adventurous cause you need tool correct for thing opposite. 10/10 IGN.

    This game is one of the best games I ever played because this game has things in real life and that are fake. This lets kids let out all their creativeness because kids can build anything they want and they can destroy mobs like creepers,zombies,zombie pigs and lots more! I can't ever stop playing and it makes my children get along and laugh.this also makes them have fun.I really recommend this game to people who love making random things.

    I purchased the Minecraft for my daughter for her iPad initially. But then I found that the game version had MORE than the iPad version. Why? Idk. But my daughter has unleashed this massive creative side that we didn't know existed. She would spend hours building (if we allowed her to) and creating different worlds. If you need something to occupy your child....heck, even yourself...get this. We play together sometimes, supervising each other. It's great for Mommy-N-Me time.

    An awesome survival game for the whole family. Minecraft Xbox One Edition offers a deep and engrossing survival simulation. You can spend a lot of time exploring your uniquely generated world, or even hop online and team up with friends. And you can also play Creative mode, building wild and intricate structures and completely reshaping the game environment

    I have to start by saying that I don't exactly "get" the game. There doesn't seem to be a narrative or final objective. They just keep building stuff and then having it blown up by creepers. It seems to me that it's a video game take on Legos. The kids get to use their imaginations and build all kinds of things. My 15 year old and my 12 year old love it and play together without fighting....too much.

    I've been sleeping on minecraft for a few years now. I ended up buying this for the kids when I purchased a new Xbox one and I'm pretty sure I've played Minecraft more than any game I purchased for myself. The simplicity of design combined with a fairly complex crafting menu have sucked me in. I would highly recommend this game even if you're not necessarily into world building games.
