Minecraft is probably one of the greatest games of this generation, possibly ever. It taps into the limitless human imagination to fuel the game beyond what most other games could only wish to accomplish.

Minecraft is truly a success on the PlayStation 4 that boasts accessible controls and a glorious interactive environment that will keep players attention for hours upon hours. Given that the game is available for around $25AUD, you definitely get value for money as you explore, build and conquer in the ultimate console version of Minecraft.

Minecraft PS4 Edition is a tried-and-true game in a solid console format. Couch co-op is extremely fun and easy to jump into, — it's like the video game version of the perfect playground. It's a game unlike any other for the PS4. Countless activities await you, and you never know what could happen. Dig in, and watch out for creepers!

Minecraft on the PS4 and Xbox One is a massive improvement over the previous generation of consoles. It is as close to the PC version of the game that we are going to get. The lack of mod support is a let down as this is a major part of what I love about the PC version of the game. PC perks aside, this release of Minecraft has no major drawbacks in terms of what you get from the core game.

Even without the ability to install mods and play on infinite worlds propped up by dedicated servers, Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition is still a strong addition to your next-gen library. The improved visuals and larger settings alone make for a significantly better experience than is currently available on older consoles. Granted, the title's not to everyone's tastes, but there's a reason that it's dug a path into the hearts of millions of players since its initial release in 2011 – and you'll probably have an inkling of whether you're a fan by now.
