I've been into this game on xbox hardcore since February 2013. Murder Miners. They say it's halo and minecraft. I say that is not the case. You can expect blocks, sure, sure. But that is where the minecraft aspect ends.
The gameplay is of course, is very much like Halo CE, with the twelve shot magnum, the four shot snipers, motion sensors, and the shields, the players armor, but there's more than that. You have WAY more mobility than in any halo game I have seen. You can sprint, dodge, double jump(more like wall scaling) and 'ram' attack, a special movement option players get in versus modes. they look down while sprinting, increasing their movement speed, and become a deadly walking projectile. So why is this Halo and Minecraft?
Halo and Minecraft? No. no, no, no, and no. First, there is no survival concept whatsoever. No food, no home to build before night, and no open world three times the size of earth. There is Forge/ Creative mode, no doubt, but it is not halo and minecraft.
My description of Murder Miners would be Halo gameplay hybridized with Unreal Tournament,(Look that game up on here, its pretty sick!) due to the high player mobility, arena maps, and weapon balancing, with a pinch of minecraft blocks.
As I'm sure what many of you want to know, how is the infection? I'd say it's probably the best infection you can possibly find in any game, and yes it's 10 times better than halo. In fact, it makes halo infecton look like someone took a giant pile of crap, and combined it with another pile of crap and placed it in a microwave for 10 minutes. Disgusting. As a Zombie, you can tongue grapple, activate radar, and level up by consuming the corpses of the freshly dead. This awesome ability makes you faster and stronger, and your abilities become more efficient. And your levels stick with you after death! It is the first game where I truly had fun playing as zombie.
To me, this game was a divine gift from the heavens. I believe that if you love halo, but know that the series won't be getting better any time soon, you need this in your library. It's fun with friends, it's competitive, it has a lot of content for what the devs are charging, so get it asap!
