Good game but crashes constantly

I love the game, it is very fun and time killing. The only problem I really have with the game is it crashes all the time now. I haven't been able to play for quite a while, and I would like to play again.

Love this game

I have had this game for quite a while now and I am now happy to say that it is one of the best. It is for all ages with minor visuals of violence. Not only that, but it lets the human mind flourish with all new ideas and problem solving skills. I've build and learned so much from it over the months and hope to see more content added to this amazing sandbox game!

Great game!

I'm not a huge gamer, but I love Minecraft. This version is just a little behind the Java version, and will probably start getting the updates first due to Microsoft owning Mahjong. The creative mode can be a bit laggy for me, but it could just be my PC. anyway, it crashes every so often when you try to open it, (others have had the same problem) but most of the time it runs smoothly. The windows 10 Edition does present a lengthier process if you're trying to mod, which is a problem for some people. not a big downside to me. mineplex (a pc server) now has a version for mcw10 and mcpe, which is great, and it doesn't seem to shut down as often as the lifeboat server. it includes all the usual features of Minecraft, including an extensive (and growing) creative inventory, survival, which now includes the end, and the ability to play on a LAN with other players. The Xbox Live app allows players to "friend" others and invite them to game. (like a long-distance LAN) over-all, a great game.

Room for improvement

This is a great game and you should definitely download it! But the external servers take forever to find the server I'm looking for. There are no mods which is fine by me it would just add a bit more excitement to the game. Overall an awesome game.

VR (Oculus Rift) Age, Love the game!

I like the fact that Minecraft is a free open build world that you can do anything in, like a sandbox game. But my question is, if most kids like me ages 10+ play Minecraft, and Minecraft is compatible with VR, why is the age restriction 13+? I get it, there could be some side-effects but why not let kids like me use, say, the Oculus Rift to play this amazing game?

Awesome

I loved the thing about it being easy to PvP with people who are using the pocket edition and easy to use to controls. The thing I don't like is soon, the price will be rising. $26.99/ $27 is too much for this game, but I think it's okay, I love this though.

Possibly the best way to experience vanilla Minecraft

The Windows 10 Edition / Pocket Edition is still a bit behind the ol' Java version regarding mechanics and content, but not by all that much. For a vanilla experience, the Win10 Edition is a very easy way to play: great performance, little-to-no technical issues.
