This game is a shrunken sized version of Minecraft for the PC and this version is also been made for the Xbox 360. Ps4 and Xbox one will be getting a bigger version than this.. but the PC port is the largest version... Minecraft is like a 3D version of Terraria only with fewer weapons, fewer tactics, fewer varieties if enemies... Sure you get a 3D world, but the size of that 3D is the only real advantage, too bad for this version of the game... The Ps3 edition of Minecraft is just as small as the Xbox 360 version only it has been updated... In fact, I believe that the Xbox 360 version is what held this version back as some monkey in a suit decided that it would be easier to just re-translate it rather than customize it for use with the Ps3's hardware... In a word this is a lazy re translation of a lazy port to an otherwise decent game... If you want a console edition to Minecraft then this would be the version to get... This is due to a slightly smoother frame rate on this version of the game, but if you already have the Xbox 360 edition then there is no point to getting this version.. If you want a bigger port of this game then wait for the Ps4 version or get the PC version... If you like this game then you should try Terraria, but for Terraria I would recommend the Xbox 360 version or the PC to the Ps3 version and that has to do with the fact that the Ps3 edition of Terraria doesn't come on a disk... Well, try before you buy!

Although it may not be as good as the PC version, with the lack of mods and such, it still remains one of the most fun games I have ever played! A perfect couch co-op game. Multiplayer is just as good. But I have a brother, so... yeah. Great game!

Gameplay is known for crapy graphics, crapy animations, no story, but building. This game is not worth a rent at all. Minecraft is only good for mods so get the PC version. If you are a trophy hunter, I guess like you can get this game because alot of the trophies are easy and about 2 are challenging.
