Though it does a great job at making the isometric ARPG formula more accessible, Minecraft Dungeons ultimately falls short due to its shallow nature

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.

Minecraft Dungeons is a game that doesn't live up to expectations. Despite being funny, it's way too small and unpolished to be the next game in the Minecraft series. Playing through the whole game leaves us with the feeling that this is just a prototype rather than the full ARPG game that fans were expecting.

Seeing as the game will cost you US$19.99, you’re paying for what you’re getting: a simple action RPG spin-off using one of the world’s most renowned video game IPs. Is it a game-changer? Nope. Is it even an action RPG to beat pioneers like the Diablo and Borderlands series? Hell no. But it’s still pretty fun and is a great gateway drug for people curious about the genre.

A light, decently fun little dungeon crawler that doesn’t ask for a huge time investment and offers a different take on the Minecraft universe.

Minecraft Dungeons is a simple entry-point ARPG. But it could have been so much more if it leaned heavier into being “baby’s first ARPG” as well as the elements that make Minecraft, Minecraft.

Minecraft Dungeons isn't like traditional Minecraft. There's no building or crafting, instead, it's a hack and slash title that takes a lot of reference from Blizzard Entertainment's Diablo series. With the player traveling through multiple biomes to save the Villages from a deadly threat. It still carries the Minecraft charm with enemies and locations designed after the massively popular indie title but doesn't attempt to take advantage of the mechanics that made the franchise such a hit. Instead, relying on the Minecraft charm for an average experience.

Minecraft Dungeons is a superficial dungeon crawler without any signs of a spectacular narrative or deep gameplay.

There is a lot of potential in Minecraft Dungeons (and there is already DLC being advertised for it), but in its current state, it feels like a first draft. If you already have a Game Pass subscription, check it out for some easy achievements, but if you're looking to scratch that dungeon crawler itch, there are better options out there right now.

An entry level take on a well-worn genre that after a few hours will have you heading for the exit.

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.

Like Diablo, this is a game designed for multiple playthroughs on increasing difficulties, but few players will feel compelled to return to a seam that’s all dried up after a single day’s exploration.

Minecraft Dungeons is a somewhat different bet than the players in this franchise are used to. It is an entertaining game that knows how to attract attention, whose reminiscences to Diablo are more than evident. If you want to enjoy that style of play but in a lighter way, Minecraft Dungeons will know how to exceed your expectations.

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.

While Minecraft Dungeons is a fantastic title to introduce your kids to isometric action RPGs, the lack of content and missing quality of life features makes the game fall short.

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.

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 tries to be a fun and simple dungeon crawler that everyone can enjoy playing. but it's simplicity hasn't happened in a positive way and problems with it like lack of crafting hurt the experience. but overall Minecraft Dungeons still have some fun elements like offline and online game mode or beautifully designed world.

If you have some friends you can gather around, you should give Minecraft Dungeons a chance. But know that game has a long way to go to become a Diablo killer.
