Minecraft is now available on Switch, and it combines the portability of Pocket with the comfort of a console.
Intuitively interesting and contagiously fun, with an unparalleled scope for creativity and memorable experiences.
The defining game of the last ten years is also one of the most surprising. Minecraft is unmissable.
Minecraft on PS4 and Xbox One is the same amazing game, but with even bigger worlds than we've see on consoles before.
The definitive portable version of Minecraft, with almost all the features of the current gen home console editions combined with the convenience of the Nintendo Switch.
A communal imaginarium, a cultural phenomenon, and an epic social experiment; Minecraft is all of these things and more, but it's also a superb example of gaming's ability to ignite and inspire our fascination with creation.
Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition is a sandbox gem, and one of the best games to own for PlayStation 4.
Minecraft: Xbox One Edition lays the foundation for incredible constructions and grand adventures, both large and small.
Minecraft Switch Edition isn't quite the best at any one thing, but it fills its niche with style. It stands below its PS4 and Xbox One counterparts in the size of the world it can build, but makes up for that by being a pitch-perfect portable experience. The physical controls and four-player splitscreen put it ahead of the full-featured Pocket Edition. It's everything the Vita version wanted to be, becoming the best portable version of Minecraft yet.
Despite the odd negative aspect, Minecraft: Switch Edition contains all the elements that make the popular building game so great. If you like to take blocks everywhere, this is undoubtedly the best option.

Releasing Minecraft on the Switch was a real no brainer for Microsoft, the game has found a natural home and is worth yet another purchase.
Solid visuals and framerate. Some drawbacks hold it back overall, such as smaller worlds, but this is easily the best handheld version of Minecraft. Splitscreen on the go is really amazing, and a lot of fun.
Minecraft is still the same great game, and it feels right at home on the Switch. It feels awesome to take the game on the go with such tight controls and accessibility, the online functionality is excellent, and the game is still a ton of fun to play with friends.
Mojang's indie phenomenon Minecraft has recently been officially 'released', but players have been crafting and surviving in its world for the past three years, Sean Bell takes a look at why it is one of the most progressive and fascinating games ever made.
Taking, even if it is graphically outdated; unlimited in its features and in the things to be accomplished, Minecraft knows only one limit: that of your imagination.

Still, there is a lot of things to see and do, and if you are one of the five people that have yet to experience this game, there has never been a better time than now.
In the interest of brevity and my own personal sanity, I'm keeping this review of Minecraft encapsulated to the game itself as you would download straight from Mojang. While recreations of J.R. Tolkien's Middle-Earth and The Death Star Trench Run capture our attention and fascination, it's easy to be blinded by the grandeur and forget about the simple mechanics that make it all possible: a 16 pixel texture cube. This shape becomes the quite literal building block for vast and expansive worlds that can be constrained really only to the limit of your imagination. We have, however, collected some of […]
Even without the ability to install mods and play on infinite worlds propped up by dedicated servers, Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition is still a strong addition to your next-gen library. The improved visuals and larger settings alone make for a significantly better experience than is currently available on older consoles. Granted, the title's not to everyone's tastes, but there's a reason that it's dug a path into the hearts of millions of players since its initial release in 2011 – and you'll probably have an inkling of whether you're a fan by now.
Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition is a worthy addition to any Switch owner’s library, young or old, core gamer or casual. It remains one of the most accessible games in recent memory and it’s just as good as you likely remember it if you took a long break from the game. For $2o dollars, Minecraft on Nintendo Switch should not be missed.
