Now, my first concern when I heard Minecraft was coming to 360 (and that Kinect implementation was to be delayed) was that the controls might be difficult to get used to. However, I was surprised when I first picked up the controller at just how natural everything felt. If you play any type of first-person games, this control setup will be second nature. I came into Minecraft having spent the previous evening playing Skyrim, and the transition to Minecraft was incredibly smooth.

I am surprised at how a game that looks so simple on the surface can be as deep and complex as Minecraft is, but I can see there being two schools of thought on this game. Some people will get it and others will not. In the end this is truly a unique experience to the point where it defies description, yet it is accessible for all styles of gamers to play. Even though the price is higher than your typical XBLA title the experience is well worth the price of admission. The only limit appears to be your own creativity.

Having already wasted more of my time than is sensible in Minecraft's strange little universe, I can see what all the fuss is about. I can also, however, see plenty of things to question and have been exasperated almost as much as I've been inspired. Minecraft is not a game I personally foresee playing a year from now, but should I look back on the hours already invested, I doubt I'll feel cheated. Indeed, Minecraft is endearing and regularly fascinates for as long as one's personal mileage can take them.
