Meanwhile, Minecraft, with all its flaws and quirks, has already joined Super Mario Brothers, Wolfenstein 3D, and Tetris in the pantheon of games that prototyped an entire genre.
Minecraft is a masterpiece, a seminal title which will be played and studied for years.
Minecraft is a masterpiece. A game that you must try.
Now that it's finally "finished," Minecraft stands as a remarkable achievement - not only a well-rounded gaming experience, but a chance for players to experiment, explore freely and reshape their environment to an almost ludicrous level. If you own a computer and haven't given Minecraft a try, you're missing one of the most unique experiences of this generation.
A sensation, and rightly so. This is a game that makes you both happy and creative.
A must-play title - as much a part of videogaming as it is anything else. [Issue#118, p.102]
