I’m pretty sure everyone reading this has probably played the beta version of the game I’m about to review. Yanno, with the blocks, and the block people, and the block ghosts and block candy stuff. Minecraft was a great game, there’s no denying it. Probably the first of its kind, and one of the best. It blew up over night, now there’s thousands of toys, t-shirts, and web communities that revolve around Steve and his friends. Yes it was SO good, that the revolutionary sandbox franchise was snatched up by Microsoft for a tidy sum of 2.5 BILLION dollars in 2014. There’s one thing, however, that Minecraft isn’t, and that, is Trove.
WordPress is an asshole.
Trove was released in 2015 on PC (Late 2016 on console) and it is basically the best version of Minecraft you could play. If you can get over the fact that it errors out every half hour, or randomly whenever you flip through menus. It has all the childlike fascination of the Mojang predecessor, with the old school RPG mentality. Choose a class! (there’s quite a selection) Run through dungeons that are SOMETIMES challenging with your friends. Join a guild (they’re called clubs) and maintain your club world! Gather supplies and build your mobile home. Yes, you can actually MOVE your entire home, all over the world. THAT’S pretty freaking cool.
WordPress is an asshole.
You want dragons? You got it! Weapon crafting? Yes sir. Portals to other dimensions? Goteeeem! Are you also a fan of extreme repetitiveness? With worlds that are always the same, no matter which level you play them in? Then TROVE is the game for you. I guarantee that you will be SUPER excited about it for maybe two weeks before you rage quit over being errored out in the middle of an Uber 5 dungeon. You might also be as annoyed as I am over the fact that ALL the blocks, no matter what color they SEEM to be, are all the same five primary colors, with skins. So you can’t just PICK UP those cool pinkish looking blocks in Candoria, because for some reason, they’re actually orange. Dafuq?
WordPress is an asshole.
That’s okay though, you still get to collect thousands of hilarious and awesome weapon styles, so that makes up for it. Kinda. I’ve given MMOCraft a 7/10, because it’s everything I wanted Minecraft to be, and 4 times as irritating.
