Plenty of contents and hours of fun. Challenging and more fun into the Expert mode, even if you are a veteran of the game.
I'll replay it for sure.

This game is amazing. I actually used to hate it when I first bought it though. I thought the controls were awkward, the screen was too dark at night (Although then I realized that was intentional so you use torches and I facepalmed), and there wasn't much to do pre-hardmode, so I never really played the game again after my first week. Decided to start over a few days ago though, and I'm hooked. I got used to the controls eventually, I wear the mining helmet a ton now, and I've found tons to do pre-hardmode. Currently preparing to fight the Brain of Cthulhu and am having a blast doing it. Also managed to get a Reaver Shark from fishing on my first try and freaked out considering how rare those are. Can't wait to get to hardmode.

My story aside, I recommend this game to anyone. It's an absolute blast to play, it has a ton of content, and every playthrough is a different experience, so the replay value is pretty much infinite. The bosses are fun, the music is good, the visuals are great, and I love the various biomes. Favorites are the Crimson and Otherworld (Although I haven't got to explore Otherworld much due to the fact that I keep dying there). 10/10. One of my new favorite games.

Also, I can safely say that this game is 100x better than Minecraft. There I said it.

This game is absolutely amazing in my opinion. Tons of bosses, items, weapons, armour, monsters, blocks, and more.
I have 85 hours on this game and I'm going to have many more. Very high replay value, extremely well implemented game
mechanics, amazing visual effects, and huge variety. This is something I will play for many, many, more hours. Great price of
$10 for such a extremely well made masterpiece. If you enjoy sandbox, pixlated, adventure games, then I highly recommend that you get this.

Insanely addictive...this game is an awful lot like a 1989 PC game called "Miner VGA," mixed in with a little bit of Legend of Zelda. A huge open world platformer with a nearly endless amount of surprises, rare items, craftable things and of course, the ability to build structures with the materials you find. The pixellated graphics are an awesome throwback to 90s PC games. Love the music, gameplay, challenges (this game can be pretty damn hard, especially the boss battles) and the insane amount of replay value. Best yet, your world will be randomly generated, so, nothing is truly linear - create as many worlds as you want, and use the same character (with all its inventory) amongst any of these worlds. Build your own city to your liking. Totally recommended!

Terraria looks basic at first, but there is an entirely confusing and complex world under the surface.

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

im a starmade addict as i love building things. i figured this game was on sale lets try it

for a 2d game its pretty deep. im barely past the beginning really @ 31 hours. even though ive mined down to the bottom. i found tons of stuff i couldn't mine with a gold pick and i triggered some boss that chain killed me . i can see myself playing this for 100s of hours easily exploring randomly generated worlds and building traps and palaces.
