Do you think the IPad version of Minecraft better than the PC version or is the PC version better than the IPad version?(P.S.,I personally think the IPad version of Minecraft sucks!)Explain why too!

Is it the pocket edition. I can tell you that I don't like the pocket edition on my iPhone, and because of that never cared to load it on the iPad. The controls are wonky and I really could never figure out how to do much of anything. I was hoping that it would help serve my minecraft needs while I was away from the computer, but I found that I would rather go without that having to deal with the pocket edition. That's my opinion anyway.

'tis but a scratch! I've had worse. It's just a flesh wound.

I've never played the Ipad version, the computer version will always be the best.

I like the PC version soooo much better. The two versions have different pros and cons but, the computer version has more pros than cons and the phone version has more cons than pros.

The difference between the two versions is that the PC version has so many more things to do than the iPad version and this is because the iPad version is still only running Alpha (first development phase of Minecraft). Now you really shouldn't criticize the iPad version too much because it took a long time before they put crafting into the game, and in Alpha they got it in there in just 3 updates. They had to change and rework the code so that it was compatible with the iPad and iPhone. So overall the PC version is better but the iPad version still has a lot of potential.

Well....the iPad version only added Survival mode recently, and the only mobs are zombies. In other words, it's not very good, not good at all.
PC is much, MUCH better.

As far as I know, they are looking to rework the Pocket Edition to get some much better controls. However I think PC will always be better due to the amount of frequent updates it gets and the popularity.

Bahaha! It's not even a comparison. I mean sure, they've got creative mode.now, but still. It's alpha code!

I think PC is better for two reasons. One, the PC controls are a LOT more easy to use and get ahold of than the iPad version. Second, the PC version has alot more content in the game on almost every level of gameplay.

The pocket edition originally got me into Minecraft, and is great for building on the go, IF you have have an iPad. It is too hard on iPhones. However, the PC version tops the pocket edition any time. In other words, I only play Pocket Edition when I am traveling.

I'd have to say PC, because it has more content and multiplayer servers. ;)

It's like Surround Sound vs. TV noise; you can live with TV noise, but Surround Sound will always be better.

I have computer version but not Ipad version and I know I like the computer version better than the Ipad because computer you get key's and a mouse and Ipad you don't.

A mouse and keyboard is going to be a better control system for a game than having to obscure the screen with your fingers.
1. Don't dig straight down
2. Use the search function
3. Remember the K.I.S.S. principle
4. Click the 'Like' button, don't post 'me too'.

PC version is always best, but the good thing about the iPad version is that you can always have Minecraft on-the-go and I can't see anything wrong with that~ :3 Who wouldn't want to build a fortress or invade the Nether while waiting through traffic? :P

I have an iPad and an iPod, right of the bat, the controls on the iPod are hard to use :S but since the screen size is way larger on the iPad, the controls are perfect and think it can be really fun, but the PC version is definetly the best version the get!
