Review: Minecraft Dungeons
Chris Berrow and Leigh Milner review the latest Minecraft Game...
Chris - Have you played Minecraft before? You'd normally run around in first person with a pickaxe and a bow and arrow or whatever, and you basically get smashed blocks up and build stuff with other blocks and you have great freedom. It's really exciting. Kids play it a lot and it's very creative. Okay. Now this is nothing like that. It's a top down kind of hack and slash or type game. The map looks exactly like Minecraft. So everything's blocky and it's out on the Nintendo Switch. It's just been released and you run around and slash the zombies and the spiders and whatever. And that's kind of it. And it's not, you can't build anything. You can't destroy anything in the environment. You're literally just playing a heck of a slasher in the world of Minecraft.
If you've got a kid who loves Minecraft and you want to be able to play the type of game that perhaps as a parent, you might be able to handle...
Leigh - but this isn't your bag at all.
Chris - It's just not a proper Minecraft. It's just got the Minecraft skin on a, on a boring slash a game. So it's this it's a 6 out of 10, but I would say if you've got kids, get it because they'll love playing it.
