Additional Comments

Rating is Garbage for the following reason: you cannot move your mouse. You are stuck either looking straight down (Or straight up if you have the mouse inverted). Due to this, you cannot mine effectively or place anything that isn't directly above or below you. It hinders the bare gameplay mechanics.

HowTo / Notes

Mouse Moving Issues
Hello, Some of you may be having mouse moving issues. If so, close Minecraft, and launch Wine Task Manager. Then launch Minecraft again, keeping the Task Manager open until you quit the game. I don't know why it works, but it does.
