Hey everyone, I'm making a new review tonight.
Tonight's review will be a rather long one and will be on one of the most popular games on the market right now; Minecraft. Oh yes Minecraft, Notch's wonderful world of 16-Bit fun. If you aren't already nauseous with Minecraft fever or plain sick over how much attention this game has been getting, then feel free to continue reading this review. Aside from that, this game can actually be quite a bit of fun (who'd have guessed?) and I would definitely recommend buying it. It is certainly worth the now doubled price of 28$ Canadian.
There must be thousands upon thousands of YouTube videos of people with too much time on their hands who have spent hundreds of hours creating to-scale models of the worlds most spectacular creations, and creations of their own. These videos give you a very good idea on just how much fun- and how addicting this game can be. There's something for everyone, the adventurer, the architect, and the artist.
So it's no surprise the game became as popular as it did. But whats the game about? You begin the game surrounded in a 16-Bit word inhabited by livestock and mountain ranges. All you have to begin with are the clothes on your back and your enthusiasm to create and destroy the wold around you.. There are sandy beaches, green valleys and towering mountains. Trees, flowers and reeds brighten the landscape and the playful sheep scatter before you as you explore. You will find everything is made of blocks, from the trees to the wandering cows around you. You can go wherever you please, since there no barriers, the further you go the further you will generate your map. In other worlds, this entire strange blocky world is yours.
The first time you play Minecraft, there is a high chance you won't survive the first night as nasty things come out at night and it's rather easy to be killed. After your first death you'll probably want to start building a house to spend the night in, somewhere to hide between bouts of exploring and gathering materials to make tools and weapons. This will be your Minecraft fortress of solitude. (continued)
