My children, however, play it like electronic Legos. They'll spend hours creating some pretty cool and incredible (for their ages) stuff. It massively encourages and inspires their creativity. It is literally the best "kid" game I've ever seen.
I enjoyed the game for a number of months after I joined a friend's server and built a few monuments there. I drifted away when the world started expanding to a point where everyone was so far away from eachother that we all had our own thing no one else ever saw. The community projects were the most fun. I cannot get into single player mode at all.
