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.

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.

-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.

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

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.

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

First of all I want to make clear something: I really liked the soundtrack at the opening. Now you may begin to read the review.

Terraria is a sandbox adventure game, where your main objective is to survive. You'll start with 3 useful tools in single player: Godly Copper Shortsword, Massive Copper Pickaxe and a Chopper Axe. You can change your character, like the style of your clothes and hair and also the character name. You can decide the map size, there are three different sizes: Small, Medium and Large. And also you can choose up to two different difficulties in the game: Normal and Expert. The game lets you craft lots of contents with the workbench you can make on the inventory menu. If you die, you won't lose your full inventory only things like: silver coins.

After these standard things of sandbox from above, I started to swing with my axe hoping to cut a tree, but it didn't work like Minecraft. Apparently you needed to wait several seconds more than the game. But if you cut down one place of the three, the whole tree will fall down so you get the woods faster than Minecraft. So when I had like hundred ten wood I started trying to craft some things, but for it I needed to find the inventory menu. Like I said it isn't the same as Minecraft. So I've pressed tons of buttons to find out how to make a workbench, but I couldn't find it. I looked online on a guide of Terraria to find an answer, after I found the button to craft; esc I died of a zombie. Because it was already dark.

I spent several minutes to make a house to survive the nights. After I made a house I started searching unexplored areas and found some treasures. I started turning back to my house, when it was almost dark. I started crafting several of craft able items and began to become a true legend. I still died most of the times. My pc crashed and needed to start all over again, but 10/10 I'll start all over again. But in expert mode.

My impressions of the game so far.

The game starts boring, but later when you understand how to play it starts to become fun. The game made me clear to say this: the game isn't (almost) the same as Minecraft.

The Pros and Cons of the game.


- Lots of different creatures
- Lots of different blocks
- Lots of items to craft
- Amazing gameplay
- Lots of caves to explore
- Admirable soundtrack
- Many bosses
- Has trading cards


- The game has sometimes starting up problems on my pc

The game is totally worth it even without any discounts. Received a free copy for testing/reviewing purposes. This review is part of the Steamified Community Review program. For similar reviews and fantastic giveaways please visit http://www.steamified.com/.

Right.What to say about this game?
Well, FIrstly i would like to start by saying this game has probably provided me with the most consistent entertainment of any on my steam friendslist. No matter how many times i get burnded out or how many times i complete a run, i can always return to this absolute gem after a few weeks/months,pick it up and have ours more fun.Overall i would say that while it does have a high degree of replay value, it does lack it when compared to other (and i hate to be the guy to compare these two games since they are so different) simillar games like Minecraft. The fact that while always fun, every run basically plays out the same is probably my biggest issue with the game. This is the primary reason that after starting a world i will often have to wait several weeks or even months to return to this game.

Now on to the gameplay.
The experience of playing Terraria is quite frankly amazing. Its easy to comprehend 2D environment combinded with an intuitive control system make it so even the most clueless console scrub can pick it up on PC and have as much fun as everyone else. Despite its replayabillity, The most fun you will have in this game will be on your first few runs. This is because often, in a world, you will never find one of every item in the game leaving some gameplay styles left to be discovered and explored seperately.This allows a more in depth look at every items merits rather than having you awkwardly scrambling through endless chests feverishly looking for items that you've collected with sufficient damage stats. However, i should note that this isnt to say that you will be left looking for good items, Quite the contrary actually. One of Terraria's key strong points is its natural pacing and well placed learning curve which never lets you prgress above your station while never imposing hard caps on progression. As a result the game as a natural feel in which it feels how video games are supposed to, with you attempting to beat it rather than it attempting to beat you. The game becomes exponentially more difficult without proper gear but doesnt stop you from giving it a go anyway. For example, the game will let you take on the Wall of flesh (the game's pre-hardmode final boss) with wooden armour and a handful of grenades and ,if you are cunning enough to make it work, progression is still wholely possible.The movement and combat in the game is a matter i'm torn on. While towards the later game it is fast paced and requires active planning, it starts out feeling sluggish and unresponsive.This is mostly down to the lack of items you have at the start combined with the necessity of many special items to aid in movement. Often wou will find yourself using all of your equipment slots fleshed out with items that improve mobillity rather that ones which say aid in combat. This sometimes leads to a feeling that the equipment is superflous and many of the buffs and abillities added by it should have been part of the core game.This is epitomises this is the flipper, whos sole purpose is to allow your character to swim (as well as some minor buffs depending on "prefixes" which i will talk about later) but overall ,towards the late game at least, combat is fast and rewarding.

The resource gathering system is sometihng which i will only talk about briefly. While ore and other mats is much more abundant than in other games of this genre, more of it is required to make useful items. This will lead to occasions of you having 99 iron ore only to find out that you can barely make a chestplate with that. as for making weapons with the resources you mine, you will only have to do this very ocasionally as the best weapons and items in the game are generally found as loot.While in my eyes this is a weakness for some reasons it is also a strong suit as it puts more focus on the exciting stuff such as boss batles and exploration than endlessly digging for ore.

The actual weapons system works as follows. Every weapon is a member of a weapon class (standard mag,ran,mel) as well as having a "sub class" such as thrown, gun,bow,sword,spear,boomerang Etc. These items will all have their own base stats such as damage and critical hit chance as well as sometimes having intrinsic abillities(such as the projectile being able to bounce or penetrate). On top of this is a weapons "prefix". This is basically a modifiyer which adds certain stats to a weapon. some only work on certain weapons and some cover multiple classes of weapon. For example The best prefix for a melee weapon is "Legendary" which provides various buffs to damage speed and critical strike chance. prefixes can be both good and bad (for exmple you could get an "Awful wooden bow" which would provide debuffs to damage projectile speed and knockback). When a weapon is obtained there is also a chance that no modifiyer will be applied and you will instead just have the weapons base stats.After a certain point in the game you will have the option to reforge an item to change its prefix for money. Better prefixed items cost more to reforge and worse ones cost less. Prefixes can also be applied to equipment to provide buffs to player based stats like mana and defense rather than weapon based ones.

Overall terraria is a fun game which is definitely worth its small price tag and if you havent picked it up yeah i would strongly recommend that you do. On a final note i would recoomend that the best way to play this game is over the course of a few free days with close friends as the experience is a multitude more fun with friends (however this may lead to arguments over who gets the d4nk3st l00t)
