I've gave the trial a quick go now and while it's still Minecraft there's a lot of small problems that I'm finding annoying. All the hints and tutorials are really annoying. Yeah, they can be handy for some but I wish there was an option to turn them off. Also, wish there was an option so that the controls wouldn't show as part of the HUD. The mine button is constantly flashing on and off which is a pain. Not a fan of the new crafting system either.
Still, if it wasn't so expensive I would have still bought it though. Just not worth paying that much for an outdated version of a game I've already got and played loads. Multiplayer would have been fun but I'll be giving this a miss unless it gets a decent price cut in a sale.
