    TL;DR - You may as well try it.

    As a minecraft clone, there are a lot of mechanics in this game that will feel familiar to anyone who has played minecraft. Creativerse, however, adds its own spin on the idea. I will be comparing this game to minecraft throughout this review. Lets go through some pros and cons:

    Pros:

    Same feeling of freedom you get from minecraft. Really do whatever you want.
    Animal taming system is a really cool optional part of the game, that has been refined from the model that existed in minecrft.
    biomes look beautiful, considering the limitations of block-based graphics
    Server system is much easier to manage than other games of the genre, with jump-in game worlds with user privilage settings
    Frequent updates are adding content and squeezing out bugs regularly
    Free-to-play model works great (Will explain below)

    Cons:

    Game progression is slower than you'd be used to. It takes longer to get to the better tools than minecraft, and deeper layers are un-minable using older tools. Really don't like this feature.
    Still a bit buggy. Some instances of creatures spawning where they shouldn't and water not acting as it should.
    Too many block types. I will explain this below.
    Some block rarities need to be tweaked.

    Review

    For some background, I live in a house with 6 of my friends, guys and girls included. Most of us are heavy gamers, and one or two are more casual. I downloaded this game on a whim and within a day the whole house was playing in my world. They had all built their own little houses and we had started organising larger projects and had delegated tasks to everyone. This. Felt. Great. It was a really cool experience that I personally never got out of minecraft, even when playing with friends. We all really love the features and look of the game, and the fact that anyone can drop in, work on the castle a bit or collect ore from the mines and drop out whenever they want. If thats the kind of experience you think you'd enjoy then this game will be a fun casual time sink.

    Now, the free to play model does have microtransactions. As far as I can tell, you can spend money on blueprints (large outlines of complicated designs that let you know which resources you'll need to build.) and consmetic blocks (recipes that unlock blocks with unique textures). Obviously, all of this content is completely optional and purely cosmetic. This is why I think it is a pro for this game.

    Block types... There are hundreds of them. Trees drop different kinds of wood, stone is only found in the shallowest layer of digging, each digging layer is made up completely of different sets of blocks representing rock types. What's good about this is the cosmetic implications. You can pretty much find a block with the exact texture you want for the walls of your dungeon or treehouse. What's bad about this is your poor poor storage space. It won't take long for you to fill up containers of bedrock, limestone, dirt etc etc and it is often hard to tell the difference at a glance which is which. The majority of these blocks are used is at least one recipe. This makes the crafting system quite complex. If I want to make an iron mining cell for whatever reason, I still have to keep flipping back to the recipe page to check what I need, even though i've crafted dozens of them.

    Block rarity. For the most part, rare blocks are very useful for specific recipes. An I tem called rockster rock is very difficult to find away from a beach, so I'd say its quite rare, but it is only really used in weapon crafting. Obsidion, which is found quite shallow under ground, is also rare. I cannot tell you how many times I found a lump of coal and got excited because I thought it was obsidion. Now, contrary to rockster rock, obsidion is used in a huge amount of essential recipes, including the recipe needed to harvest more obsidion. I spend far too much time just looking for obsision, because it is far too rare for the recipes that use it. Obsidion is just one example, it does happen with other block types, but that might ust paint the picture.

    All in all, creativerse is definitely a fun game, Its free, Its not graphics intensive, It looks great, and its easy to play with your friends. It has its problems, obviously, but they are activley being worked on. Give it a go.

    Fantastic free version of minecraft

    Really enjoy this game. Fun and easy to play with friends, easy ways to travel around the world using portals. Graphics are much better than minecraft without losing any charm. Nie that you can do thing like farming and making food, planting trees and cretive beehives. Allows for some really nice innovation and imagination when it come to creating fantastic structures. Might get a bit booring once you find the corrupt layer and explore it properly, since there are no more difficult monsters than those that spawn there. Only solution then is to come up with a great plan and then start building! :D

    A "worth-it" minecraft's twin

    After my first day with Creativerse, i can honestly say that I like this game just as much if not more than Minecraft.

    The gameplay is like minecraft were you gather matrials for tools, weapons, armor, building matrials, ect... as well as the freedom of minecrafts voxal based creation. pirate ships, famous land marks, pixel art, ect...

    Multiplayer is alot easier than minecraft's, the in game servers are far easier to use than the 3rd party server requirements of minecraft and with steam suport alows you to invite you friends directly from the Shift+Tab menu.

    so as you can tell, this game is Minecraft with easier multiplayer, simulare gameplay, and voxel based construction.

    P.S. for a good idea about some of the stuff you can make in this game check out the Comunity Hub.

    Good minecraft alternative

    AVIS DONNÉ PENDANT L'ACCÈS ANTICIPÉ
    First off I would like to say that this game has among the best community of players I have ever encountered online. Everyone is super helpful and nice, very collaborative and community oriented. Let's keep this trend going!

    Now this is a sandbox game!

    I am absolutely loving this game, it's addicing and rewarding, everything about this game is fun to do.

    A breif overview of the game.

    You start off in a random location on the world map, which currently there are only 4 variants off which is unfortunate, but hopefully soon they will be procedurally generated. You have a Twig with which to hit things to kill them and harvest their loot, and a basic Mining Core/Gauntlet.

    You go kill Piglets, Boars, Leafis, things of that nature to collect Hide, Tusks, Sinew, Bone, etc. As you travel you can collect the trees, dirt, water, honey, etc in order to upgrade your Mining Core. Build up your core, mine around, explore, fight things, collect flowers/mushrooms. Make a Forge and Processor, create armor and weapons, other neat things. Furniture, what have you.

    Mining Ore in this game is different. Instead of Clicking on it and standing there until you Pop it, you place an Extractor on the Ore Node which will harvest it for you, giving you time to go and look around for more ore while it processes. Come back and poof, there's 12 Coal Ore, or Obsidian or what ever it might be. It's a very interesting take on it and it's a lot of fun.

    Well anyway I'm rambling on about nothing, but it's a LOT of fun and it's still in early access. Tons of fun, and immense potentil.

    Overall Rating
    8/10

    Creativerse is very much like mine craft there is a learning curve at the start but after that the game is really fun imaging minecraft before the never update you start on the surface and work you way down to the corrupt which is where you get the best armor in the game you can also tame animals feed them shear them which weird because some of them don't have wool and wash them there is no hunger which is a cool thing so you don't have to keep hunting pigs for food. there is also a teleport button so you can place teleports around to fast travel
