The game is unimaginably great. The people who dislike it probably aren't familiar to the game because they never tried it. Or, they don't have a good taste if adventure, and fun. I first played the pocket edition of it and it was boring. But then I figured out it was a entirely different version from the original: Minecraft java edition. I bought it, played on it and for some reason, the java edition of the game was more fun. I love how there its servers like hypixel and mineplex that are high quality. Especially, playing with my friends! Dual wielding, optifine, higher quality mods, better shaders, etc. we mess around with these possibilities for hours and it never gets old. Now, the only issue I have with it is the price. Now, not everyone has nearly 30 dollars to spend on a game. So I had to play with my friends that were willing to take that up as an offer. But nonetheless, both versions are great, minecraft is great, and I definitely 100% recommend you try it.
