Played since 2008, was a great game. (GAME FULL OF KIDS, LIKE SERIOUSLY.)

The loss of players and the lack of creators updates left it a partly-unfinished game leaving the community to mod their own gamemodes on their own. Yet ruining the game; Not a single update went out until last year, and yet as he says, he declares no more.

IF you buy this game, you wont get a whoop load of fantastic fun like you would back in 2009, the forum is nearly dead and the gamestyle is old, I promise it will be a bad experience and a waste of money; He's practically using it to leech his ten bucks every week. Making more SH**TY games, and he wont focus on one large project.

Return-To-Blockland began to stop using their free merchandise on blockland, because one of the lucky men keeping it alive was rewarded a promotion elsewere. Ruining the game even more it has less stinctive use and predictament to the game. Since then, thankful for all the modders and their helpful work. Knowingly now that it is a waste of work and it is loosing atleast a player a day.

I do not reccomend this game, the trailer is showcasing the most unlikely of things to happen in the game adn is a waste of money, trust me, i bought it adn barely ever play it. Although if you have many friends and a cool map this game could be good, but that is unlikely.

Seems like the developer is too busy banning reasonable people off his forums and playing Quake Live to do anything to help the game. The developer's game is nothing anymore - consider him a regular Steam user, and treat him as you would a terrible person on the internet.

This game is amazing, and it pretty well puts Roblox to shame.
I really like it, and It's kept me occupied for awhile, I've made a few new friends as well
Stop listening to me being emotional and read these pro's and con's

pros
-fun, and easy to get the hang of
-somewhat alive community
-you can make absolutely anything, edible food, buildings, etc.
-minigames are fun as hell

cons
-It needs just a little bit more, but theres supposed to be a "big update" soon so we'll see what they deliver.
-single player isn't the best, I wish I could save levels like in Minecraft instead of saving the creation itself and loading it up on a diff level later.

In the end, I love this game
my rating would be 9/10 (extremely recommended)

one of the best games i have come accross yet! although 7 Days to die may have been a LAG MACHINE and sorta weak, this game let's you easily build, fight, and...well, grief!

i built a HUGE map for dayZ and am going to get a dayz mod! also, those COD and CS fanz out there, keep your pants on. That segment's up next!

Building... i'd give it a 8.5/10. It gives an... Accurate and detailed, Yet fast, way for building through "Ghost Blocks", and easily lets you make HUGE structures. This game had me addicted for 5 weeks... AND COUNTING!

Now, for those Hyperactive, Spaztic no-scope, Quickscope, 720 Headshotters, ( lol yes, quick and no scope XD) here's the First Person Shooter portion! This game adds a lil' indie, roblox, and quake in a way to say it! this is the mine-blox version of CS... i give it... a 9/10... mostly because you have to add on a mod to get more than a single gun in the game, but after all, it is a Kid's game. So. no gore, no...uhhm.. Guts..?

And there ya go. That wraps it up with a rocketting score of.... {[( 17.5/20 )]}

Minded thriller, I wanted to buy this game. But as I got this game was somewhat simple, covering only 58 MB. After downloading the game, I went to START GAME and I went tutorial. When I walked through the tutorial, I threw in some kind of map of where everything was green and I had to just block, at the time the game was bad, even though the game is written BLOCKLAND is non-linear sandbox game with no goals, giving players the freedom to design and construct complex structures. Styled as a tiny minifigures players to build inside the virtual world, using bricks reminiscent of toy blocks. These structures can be built in any single player or multiplayer (or over the Internet or local area network). I came out of the game and clicked JOIN TO GAME. I went to a random server and nužinojau that BLOCKLAND is a really good game, better than Minecraft, thanks to the Creator, a really good game.

I have been playing Blockland for the better part of my life, as cheesy as that sounds. In my opinion, it is a great game. The creativeness is very contemplating. I would rate this game five stars. Five stars without the Community. The community is horrid. Over the past few years the community has becoming worse and worse. Almost everyone are a bunch of screaming, crying kids. They are disrespectful, dishonorable, and terrible. Just take a look at it for yourself. There are a bunch of egotistical brats who spend a lot more of their time beating down people on the forums then playing the actual game themselves. It is near impossible to find a server that is full of good people who will teach you how to play the game and be nice to you. Most people are discriminate and will banish you from your server on sight.

The game is great without the community, and I would rate it five stars in a heartbeat. But buying this game is quite testy since the major part of Blockland is it’s community. One bad apple can spoil the bunch, except the bunch are the bad apples. Looking behind the bad bunch are good people too. There are still a few people who are very creative, helpful, and kind. You may find a few friends too.

I have more information about the game as well as a few interesting sites on a review I did on my blog. View it here.

Ok, so just to be clear right off the bat, i bought this to see just how truthfull the bad reviews are. After reading some of the bad reviews, i read some of the good reviews too. The conflicting opinions were too good to pass up buying this game.

I will edit this review once i have actually played the game. Right now, i recommend the game. Why? The developer is not some massive studio like Ubi or EA. He is in fact an Indie Dev that doesnt have a PR department to help sort through the negative crap that gets thrown at him. He has to get through it himself. So cut him some slack.

Support the dev. Get the game.

::GAMEPLAY REVIEW::

Ok so people claim the game is crap because the dev hasnt done XYZ....

Rubbish.

The game is crap because they cant be bothered to spend just a few minutes looking into the addons and some of the ways they interact with other addons.

I have had tons of fun with this game, and its not even a genre i find massively appealing!

Get the game, learn how to create engaging minigames (some with zombies if you spend a few minutes downloading addons - them zeds be strong, run like a mother f****** XD)

blockland is a sandbox where you can be creative there's really no rule's to blockland. i know you really get bored of building sometime's but you have other gamemode's like, rampage now what rampage is a type a gamemode where you load a map and you have a big boss and you have to break all the block's before time run's out. then you have custom gamemode's like jail Rp and other's which you have to get from the fourm's when it come's to add-on's you have to download and install them from the fourm's now here's the link the the fourm's, www.fourm.blockland.us you can get all type's of add-on's. but what most people are upset about it's because blockland doesn't have a lot of content now when you get bored of everything your going to stop playing the game so that's why i'm telling you this. now when you install the add-on it's going to be a, Zip. file which you can't install without Winrar so you need to put the file into the blockland file now you will see a file in the blockland file's called, addon now what you wanna do is put the file into that file then when you make a server you have to enable the add-on you have to do this to use the add-on. but over all the game is very good and you can have a hell of a lot of fun!

This is a response to LewnaJa and DarkByte97's awful review of this game.

LewnaJa & DarkByte97, a review of a game consists of a review of the GAME. What you are doing is reviewing the developer, lack of updates (which is not required for a game that's finished), the community (everyone aint ♥♥♥♥♥ if you would open your eyes) and the trailer (you can actually do what is highlighted, several mods, if you would open your eyes again). This is highly irrelevant for the game quality itself.

The only game-reviewing elements of your review concerns: building, content-implementation, how it is broken.

1. You state the building is "not easy". I disagree. The building in this game is great. Very easy, very effective. If you still don't find yourself building neat things, you lack of creativity and/or will. You state a lack of help in building. Now if you were to befriend the community, you recieve help. Besides I've found a good guide that addresses common design flaws in building. You also state it is "time-consuming". Well many things are time-consuming, but I'd be better off learning how to build than looking at pointless videos and images at Facebook (or spread lies about this game for that matter).

2. You state the game has not recieved any updates since the Event System in v9 (correct me if I'm wrong). That is a big lie, the shaders, which I fancy, bug fixes, UPnP (v14) integration, treasure chest, cannon, rowboat, player persistence, some gamemodes and the official integration of amazing mods (speedkart, blood and gore, modular terrain bricks) qualifies.

3. You state the game is "near-broken". I disagree. It is clearly not broken, the game functions very well and it is very rare that I stumble upon a bug or something that contributes to game-breaking. Another lie you spread.

In your conclusion you state the game is not bad. I can agree on that one and to correct your understating description of this game, the game is amazingly fun given the right engagement. You also state that the game has no future updates or a community with people who enjoy the game. You cannot predict, if Badspot will update the game once again. Besides it is not his responsibility, as you BUY the game alone and not continuous updates. And I don't see how you can state the game does not consist of people who enjoy it? If they weren't enjoying it, they wouldn't be playing it. The community is again not the developers responsibility.

Oh and you also note it does not have friendly technical support, I cannot correct you on this, because I've never needed any technical support as the game has functioned almost flawless for me since I started playing this game in 2008. (v8, I believe, way before it came out on Steam)

ANYONE supporting this review are blind and lack of engagement in this game in order for them to enjoy it. I suggest you stay away from this game. I don't want this game polluted by your sad existance. ANYONE supporting this game and contributing to the game in whatever way, thank you for making this game better. Thank you.

TL;DR: LewnaJa and DarkByte97's review consists of lies and its focus lies on game-irrelevant topics. Badspot may be a mean ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, but his game is amazingly fun.

I can't believe after seven measley years, and only a few dozen major updates, the developers would DARE discontinue development on this game I've only spent thousands of hours in! Turns out this is even a common action among developers on Steam!

Look at this game. http://store.steampowered.com/app/308000/ The graphics look like garbage and no matter how many times I email the develpers about updating them, they never respond!!

Look at this one too, can't believe I'm advertising these developers. http://store.steampowered.com/app/2280/ Again, graphics look bad and gameplay is SOOO BORING!! Every time I email the developers about updating it, no responses! To top that off, I hear they're making a sequel to it! Can't believe they're gonna make me pay again when you can't even fix your first game. Nice work, jerks.

Don't even get me started on the community! For some reason, unlike in every other facet of life, all the people who play this are all rude and mean! This is so drastically unprecedented, I hold this to be 100% the fault of the developers.

Oh and there's some minigame where you build things with blocks I didn't try that at all.

this game is fun at first, but then it slowly gets more boring, unlike minecraft this game is very limited and the game isn't worth the money in my opinion, you're better off getting minecraft or something like that. i know this review isn't much but im being very honest.
