The Nintendo Switch version provides an authentic Minecraft experience that is hugely benefitted by the ability to play it anywhere with physical controls. The one drawback is the lack of voice chat, which makes online multiplayer less fun than on other platforms, so it's best enjoyed in the same room as your friends.

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.

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.

Minecraft: Switch Edition contains all the elements that make the popular construction game so great. If you like playing with blocks anywhere, this is undoubtedly the best version.

Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition has the potential to be a devious time-devourer, as I'm learning the hard way.

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.

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.

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.

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.

While other console Minecrafts have it beat on resolution and maximum map size, the Nintendo Switch Edition is the only version to give you all the authentic Minecraft goodness wherever and whenever you want to play.
