Minecraft Dungeons is a simple, fun, entertaining game that deserves to be experienced more so because it is included in (Xbox Game Pass) because it offers great variety in terms of gameplay and enemies combined with a pretty art style and chill music but the game comes with a major downside it has a shallow story which causes the game to be short especially for the type of game that is Minecraft Dungeons.

Minecraft Dungeons: Hero Edition isn't going to take your breath away, but it does provide a charming spin on the dungeon crawler/hack-and-slash formula that warrants some attention for fans of the genre. The core Minecraft experience is kept well in tact while re-balancing most of its mechanics to be better suited to its genre shift.

Minecraft Dungeons brings the crafting game's charm to a dungeon crawler type of game and can be pretty fun in short bursts. Unfortunately, the game's long and repetitive dungeons get boring quickly.

It's easy to write this off as a 'baby's first dungeon-crawler,' but it's proven itself to be something more; something that transcends that viewpoint. It's a great exploration of the Minecraft universe, and shows what a developer is capable of outside of the creative block hellscape of the original survival format. It's fair to say that it's a real blast to play with responsive and chunky gameplay that is mostly unhampered by a couple of small flaws. Highly recommended to anyone who loves a bit of a bash, especially with friends!

It's not perfect, but Minecraft Dungeons is a good choice for those who want fun action that's simpler than games like Diablo.

Minecraft Dungeons does promise that DLC is coming, whether this ends up just being a cash grab to add a couple extra levels is yet to be seen. All we can hope for is that this will give fans of the game a reason to return to the game and give a reason to grind out levels and gear, otherwise, Minecraft Dungeons will surely fall to the wayside.

Although repetitive, Minecraft Dungeon manages to entertain thanks to an extremely simple game mode that makes it possible for anyone to find their ideal "level of difficulty". The urge to find new, more powerful equipment tends to keep you "greedily" glued in front of the monitor.

Minecraft dungeons had a lot of potential to be a strong and enjoyable game that could engage the gamer for hours. But the developers didn’t use this potential at all and released the game as incomplete as it is. The developers will probably add more content in the future updates and DLCs but right now, the game is not what it was expected to be

Minecraft Dungeons is a solid game that is not only cheap, but accessible. It also helps that it came out on everything and Game Pass owners get to check it out for free. It is great seeing Microsoft expand the series out to more genres. The recognizable fidelity aids in it reaching a larger audience and the price tag makes it an impulse purchase. It also helps that the quality is there. I think anyone who takes a dive into Minecraft Dungeons will have a great time.

Minecraft Dungeons is a competent hack n' slash RPG; nothing more, nothing less. It has the outward charm of the creative masterpiece that inspired it, but very little depth. What is here is fun for a time in solo or co-op, but don't expect it to hold your attention long-term.

After a good 50 hours of leveling and grinding and unlocking the secret level, I have classified Minecraft Dungeons as completed until the first DLC. I have a perfect build, though not maximum power level and no challenge is a problem. Still, it must be said that, in my case, the equivalent of about 40 cents per hour of play is a pretty good figure. I am looking forward to the DLCs and the general further development. All in all, the release version of Minecraft Dungeons is very well done. I only had a few problems, although one bug was extremely annoying and made my build unplayable in a few missions. Minecraft Dungeons has unbelievable potential, but of course the developer has to decide to invest some time in it. Two DLCs have been confirmed and we'll see what else is coming.

With a short campaign mode and lack of crafting, Minecraft Dungeons may not be a hardcore offering that will give you hundreds of hours of play, but it is a perfect way to spend a few hours playing together with friends or your kids while you wait for the next season of your favorite dungeon crawler to start up.

The Minecraft atmosphere is good in it, although the game actually has nothing to do with Minecraft at all in terms of gameplay. You can't tear down the environment and build anything. This is just a hack-and-slash RPG in the Diablo sphere. That the difficulty level is not high, although of course it can be set higher yourself. Mojang has done everything in his effort to make the game as accessible and forgiving as possible for younger gamers as well with various health-restoring options and fun upgrades.

At its heart, Minecraft Dungeons is the sort of release that feels like it rides on the coattails of greater games a little too much. If this game did not have the Minecraft branding, it’s not much of a leap to assume that it would scarcely garner any attention based purely on its own merits. The gear system, combat, level design, and presentation is all fine and entertaining in its own right, but there’s little here that we could point to that elevates this game alongside or above peers such as Torchlight II, Diablo III or Path of Exile. Bearing this in mind, we’d give Minecraft Dungeons a very light recommendation to those of you looking for a surface-level introduction to the ARPG genre or for something to play in co-op with the kids. If that doesn’t describe you, then we’d suggest going with either Torchlight II or Diablo III, which both offer a more substantial and fulfilling experience of this genre.
