Minecraft Dungeons reviews round-up, all the scores

Is Minecraft Dungeons a bold new direction for the series or just a one-off?

Minecraft Dungeons is the massive off-shoot that trades the building and digging for a more action-focused take. Dungeons is a top-down action RPG about dungeon delving and co-op play.

Minecraft Dungeons doesn't have the class split we're used to seeing in that style of game, but you will be able to adopt a specific play style thanks to artefacts and character enchantments. The game also includes an array of weapons, giving it a distinct take on the Minecraft universe.

There's a big focus on customisation and cosmetic unlocks for your character, too. Minecraft Dungeons even supports couch co-op if you can't get online, or four players in online co-op.

Read on below to see what the critics are saying.
