Even though I haven't played much, (I've actually played a lot on console) this is a very fun and cute game. Totally worth ten bucks. Also, playing this on a PC instead of an Xbox 360 just feels SO much better. This game is a must buy! Amazing.

If you are new to Terraria, expect to die quite a few times. This is completely normal and is only a minor setback (unless you were to choose anything but softcore during character creation).
Terraria from a general perspective is mostly about different methods of grinding items that will lead you from boss to boss in an action packed environment that is both equal parts difficult and rewarding.
If you aren't hooked on the game right away, give it a little bit more time and I am positive you will find yourself unable to put it down.

I highly recommend this game both to those who enjoy playing with friends and without.

Ok I know ihave few hours on this account with terraria... BUT! i used to play it on the xbox360 and i had so uch fun until the xbox got the redring of death.. now lets get to the review!

THIS GAME IS SO ♥♥♥♥ING GOOD! IT ISNT A MINECRAFT COPY! IF ANYTHING IT IS THE BEST SURVIVAL GAME OTHER THAN THE FPS SURVIVAL GAMES!

reasons to get it
- most fun you'll ever have dieing to a boss on softcore
- most fun you'll have on any game period
- realy fun to play with friends
- singleplayer is even better if you make multiple worlds and search everywhere underground for GOLD chests
- easy to be OP and have fun getting geard up

problems...
- you need to know the game a little bit or have friends who know it for you to make your life easier
- night time feels like it takes forever and especially if you just started

but if this was rated by me, i would have to give it a 11/10 for giving me so many good memories and fun times with friends!

please consider buying this game if you haven't. if you dont have a creditcard than grab $20 or $50 and head to your nearest "Target (0)" (btw target is a store so if you dont have one in your country/state than sorry) and when you get there head to the games and grab a $20 or $50 giftcard its worth it

If you ave read all of this Thank you and have fun in Terraria.

Well I think it's about time to review this gem.

Terraria is one of the best value-per-dollar games you can buy on steam. Period. Obviously some of the free-to-play games can match that value (because you spend nothing) but the amount of content in this game is just ridiculous!

Ever since 1.0, there have been 3 absolutely game-changing updates, for completely free. The game was already worth it just at 1.0, apart from bugs, but then they litterally quadrupuled or quintupled every aspect of the game. 1.0 got the basics right; satisfying combat, fun exploration, lots of sandboxy things to do, but as I just said, it's sandboxy; there's a lack of an appropriate ending besides "get the most powerful stuff." 1.3 gave us the Moon Lord which is the equivilant of the Ender Dragon from Minecraft; it doesn't end your game after you defeat it but it's something tough even with the gear you get from him, so it feels like a climactic end.

You'll start off small with your copper shortsword, or maybe you build the wooden broadsword to replace it. After many hours you'll have slowly went through the arsenal of weapons and armor the game provides you, from bows to guns to MAGIC, and from simple "take less damage" armor to armor that has really unique effects such as allowing you to reflect damage and draw aggro from enemies for your friends.

On top of the weaponry you have all of the things to do with blockbuilding. There's so many pieces of furnature and different materials you can use to make something that looks amazing, and then you can customize it further by changing shapes with a hammer or recoloring blocks through the paint gun. On top of those cosmetic things you also have the (as of a recent update) fairly extensive wiring system that can allow you to create some pretty cool traps or other mechanisms such as spawning enemies or opening/closing doors.

And on top of THAT you have the massive variety of enemies to fight, some of which will completely obliterate you and you'll enjoy every minute of it. All of the bosses have their unique elements and you'll definitely be surprised the first time a signature move comes out (like the first time that the Corruption boss comes out of the ground).

AND ON TOP OF THAT you have a thriving modding community if the base game doesn't have enough content. Whether you just want more content or complete overhauls, the modding community's got you covered in user-friendly mod managers and easy mod installation.

So basically I'm saying the game's pretty good and you should buy it if you haven't already with how often it goes on 50% and 75% sales.

Introduction:
Terraria is a 2D sandbox game with elements of action, mystery and adventure set in a beautifully pixelated world of flying eyeballs and various biomes like hell. With the choice to build, mine, fish, explore, fight and ride unicorns, how you play the game is really up to you.

Pros:
-Customisable characters with cloud support.
-Dozens of weapons, armour, equipment, tools and consumables to choose from.
-Various mounts and pets to choose from.
-Multiple biomes with their own unique inhabitants, resource and behaviour.
-Over ten bosses that provide a challenge for combat lovers.
-Interesting NPCs who appreciate your horrible houses.
-More than one way to play the game (such as fishing, mining and dying).
-Hundreds of craft-able items and dozens of blocks.

Cons:
-Very time-consuming (although some see this as a good thing).

Overall:
Terraria is not a rip-off of Minecraft, but is actually a phenomenal game packed with fun and a lot of content. It is definitely worth its price and twice the fun when played with a friend. Even after beating the final boss, there are still lots to explore, discover and achieve in this wonderfully made game. I personally rate this game a 9/10.

Nice sandbox, nice survival game

- You'll always have something to do here
- The game is huge if you like to get all the achievements, kill all the bosses and play all the classes.
- Awesome multiplayer game
- Kind of hard at the beginning because everything is hard to get and everyone can kill you easily but it's worth
- You can "share" your singleplayer worlds and it's amazing.
- You can play with all your characters in all your worlds so it's nice because if you get something cool for another character can just let it in a chest, switch characters and get it. :D

This game is 2d side scroller meets minecraft meets rpg meets sandbox to say the least.
But it is so much more.
Instead of describing every little thing its best to just generalize the game

Theres basically 2 parts, pre-hardmode and hardmode
pre-hardmode is the 1st part of the game consisting of semi-hard mobs, events, and bosses.
hardmode is the 2nd part that you unlock after beating the 1st part. It contains alot tougher mobs, events, and bosses.
Theres alot of different biomes, both above ground and underground. Each changes as you switch from one mode to the other.

This game is pretty cool in both visuals and replay value.
If anything, the 2-d aspect of this side scroller game gives it its unique and abstract appeal.

This game is only as fun as your imagination allows you.
The community is pretty decent too compared to other games.

Theres a PC, Console, and Mobile version of the game, each with varying small details and unique mobs/bosses.
PC obviously has the most content due to PC's handling more graphics and having more storage space and programs.
Whoever, the mobile and console versions are just as good and i would highly recommend trying those out as well (i have all 3 versions)

The fun isn't limited to just solo, playing it with friends is also an option, and is alot more fun.

This game is pretty much done with updates (at least thats what i thought until they made the newest wire and mechanics update). Still, theres always the possiblity that they can add more content later on down the line. Still, with the current content its still pretty fun.

***** 5/5 stars no question
