Minecraft is an excellent game with plenty of possibilities for enhancements (mods, texture packs, plugins) but this article is essentially about Texture Packs and which ones are the best? I will give each texture pack a rating out of 10. And you know the one that receives a 10, will be the one you should get!
#1 - LB Photo Realism
7/10: This texture pack has excellent, realistic qualities, but requires Mcpatcher to install. This texture pack is also a problem because it is High Definition (HD) and means that some bad computers may lag because of it. Only get it if your computer is strong!
#2 - Super Mario Pack
9/10: Super Mario Pack is awesome! It barely lags, (unless your computer is an epic fail!) and is based around sprites from the original SNES and NES Mario Games. I highly recommend this one! The only problem is some blocks take a while to get used to...
#3 - DiamondCraft
2/10: I had to put this one on the list because it looks awesome! But it is very unhelpful when you have to dig, the dirt looks like diamond-blocks and it starts to become frustrating after a while... There is no chance that this can be your permanent Minecraft Texture Pack, it just gets too difficult to use...
#4 - Sphax BDCraft

10/10: This is the best texture pack ever! There is no confusion with the default texture pack, and you can download the right resolution that suits your computer... No need to worry about your epic fail computer. I use this texture pack, and of all that I tried, this is by far the best...
#5 - CartoonCraft
<a target="_blank" rel="nofollow" href="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/40/cartooncraft.png/">
9/10: Barely any lag, you don't need the best computer ever, and can't be confused with the default texture pack. This texture pack slightly changes the default to make it look like a cartoon!
#6 - SkyRim
8/10: This texture pack makes the game look like SkyRim, though you need McPatcher as it is HD. This texture pack is a realistic pack in itself!
