Minecraft Legends Review
Minecraft Legends is a new effort in the hugely popular building and adventure game series and a new sub-game in the series that takes players to new heights with a different gameplay style from Canadian development team Blackbird Interactive and Mojang Studios. After playing for hours, here is our final opinion on this adventure.
Most players thought Minecraft Legends was a real-time strategy game, and perhaps that description fits somewhat, but we can also consider it an action game and it can also be classified as a construction and simulation game. The truth is that it is a combination of all of these elements is. Simply put, we can say that Minecraft Legends is very similar to the famous Nintendo game Pikmin in basic gameplay and controls of Pikmin creatures (or golems in this game) that the player can collect, summon and send to other places to To reach them Defeat the goblins. This game is the legitimate child of Pikmin and Minecraft.
We can say that the single player mode is intelligently built to develop the player’s skills and teach him the basic mechanics of the game. The game takes place in an open world with automatically generated elements and diverse environments and the player is given many tasks to defend villages against Giblins or attack them in their own locations and destroy facilities with the help of the creatures. Small villages that the player controls, or large strategic battles against them, which become increasingly complex and difficult as the game progresses. If an object falls down in the village, the player must free it again. This is very important as they serve as points for quick movement and also help provide resources to the player.
Gameplay and Features
The special touch that this game carries comes from the DNA of the Minecraft series by collecting various resources from the game world such as wood, stone and metals and building numerous facilities and fortifications. It is possible to upgrade these facilities and obtain new skills and additional resources and obtain Golem creatures of various types that perform various tasks. For example, one of them treats and helps other creatures. Creature Controls There wasn’t much we liked about this Xbox controller, aside from the stupidity of the creatures and their inability to navigate easily, which made the controls a bit annoying. It could have been better than it was.
Three types of facilities can also be built: defensive structures such as walls and spawners for attack units (golems), as well as upgrades that allow the construction of more advanced and dangerous facilities such as the red TNT launcher. This is the basic gameplay cycle in this game, and it depends on building and fortifying, gathering resources, and using various creatures and their abilities as well as various tools to fight fierce battles against Giblins, with the ability to quickly move around the map to move in single player mode, which lasts up to 20 hours. Nearly. The idea of the game is good and it’s fun to play for a few hours, but the feeling of repetition and boredom quickly sets in.
Group Play and Graphics
That’s not all, as Minecraft Legends also supports group play in a team system, where two teams are involved in a fierce battle in which each of them tries to destroy the other team’s base. It can be said that group games are extremely strategic in nature and require ingenuity in preparing, planning and destroying the opposing team’s facilities, but that is not the case… It supports voice chat and therefore it is for players of one team very difficult to coordinate tasks and roles among each other.
The game has a simple graphic style and there are plot scenes that we didn’t pay attention to, and it is generally aimed at young people, despite some dark hints. However, the performance is completely stable, and that is the most important thing for a game of this type. We tried the Arabic language in the game and it is literally bad and at times gave the impression that it was a translation of Google acted. That is certainly not acceptable at all in a first-party game of a company the size of Microsoft, and we demand a higher level of Arabization than that.
Minecraft Legends is a completely unsuccessful attempt to present a strategic game from this famous series. Game times fluctuate between enjoyment at times and annoyance at other times, whether those annoyances are due to the controls and their issues or even the lack of innovative options available to the game’s players, but at least it says new players good welcome. This game has strengths, but we only recommend it to loyal Minecraft fans.
