This is honestly one of the most addicting games I have ever come across. Never have I ever had a game that has captured this much of my attention. (Side note about myself: I get bored with games VERY VERY QUICKLY yet I played this wonderful game for so long)

*cough* Back to the actual review :D

Terraria is much more than just a "2D Minecraft", it is a gigantic adventure in which the player takes part in. There is so much to do, so many places to visit and ever so many items to craft!

The 2D graphics are superb and welcoming, it gives some sense of nostalgia when you play.
With different world sizes and character death settings, anyone can easily pick up the game and start playing.
The bosses are a blast to fight and preparing for the battle is almost as fun as the actual fight itself!

One of the biggest aspects of this game is the multiplayer: This game is so much more intereting when you rally up a group of friends and quest together! The only real gripe I have with this game is that THE DEVELOPERS NEED TO CREATE AN EASIER WAY TO PLAY WITH YOUR FRIENDS, seriusly...it took us WAY too long to figure out and create a functional server. But do not worry because the end result is soooo worth it.

I highly recommend this game to anyone who has $10! It is a true bang for the buck.


I will end my review there since I do not want to make people avoid my review due to its length

REVIEW
Terraria is already a well-known game. There probably isn’t much I can say which hasn’t already been said. Many gamers have heard of it, and many gamers know it is considered to be generally “great,” transcending most genre preferences and prejudices. And I now count myself among those people. But the inherent quality of Terraria isn’t necessarily that obvious when a total newcomer decides to give it a shot, as the game can be quite uninviting at first. And that is something I want to address.

So I will tell you, like the thousands of others, that Terraria is an incredibly enjoyable game. It is hard to concisely describe exactly why it is so enjoyable; but it basically boils down to the fact that there is an air of quality inherent to every gameplay aspect and those aspects synergize so well that that quality is multiplied exponentially in the end result.

But when I first decided to try it, I failed three times to get into it. Each time I sat down and tried to see what all the fuss was about, but each time I wound up extremely bored and confused as to why I couldn’t see what was supposed to be so fun about it. The lack of any clear purpose and direction at the start of the game had me running around with no real incentives, and it ended up feeling unrewarding. Then I played with some new friends online who could offer a bit of direction. We started a new world together and the next thing I knew hours had flown by and I realized that I was finally enlightened.

It was difficult to get over the initial hump of a learning curve and having a starter character. There is no tutorial, there are no objectives; simply moving around is tedious at first, the digging is slow, and the building options are minimal… and it can all feel rather boring. But when you finally start making progress into the game, all the upgrades and item-tiers you climb through feel so gratifying. And I think having that initial slow-climbing grind at the start is a major part of what makes the game so satisfying once you finally delve into the heart of it.

Once you reach this point of enlightenment, you will be eager to explore all that Terraria has to offer. Hunt down exotic loot. Fight epic boss battles. Build giant castles with thousands of items. Make new friends and enjoy the enormous replayability of playing online. Maybe even try a role-play server. There are many hours of fun to be had.

Perhaps the only negative aspects worth noting are the simplistic graphics and the lack of any clear story-mode. But due to the great gameplay and nature of the game, both of these things are easily dismissed as a non-issue by most. That said, if you really like story-driven experiences and/or gorgeous, current-gen graphics, you definitely won’t find those here.

So in short, Terraria is something that can be easily enjoyed by almost any gamer. If you haven’t yet given it a go, you should probably consider it. It is a pretty safe bet for all but the most extremely discerning gamers. Just don’t forget that it may feel boring at first, but it is worth fighting past it; and playing with some people online can make it significantly more fun, especially when you are new.

Day 5: Try to beat the eye of cthulu with just shurikens; actually works
Day 10: Full platinum, beat skeletron.
Day 50: Best items pre-hardmode, fight wall of flesh, wall at 5 hp and you get hit by a fire imp...
Day 50 1/2: Beat wall of flesh

I'm going to be honest, at first I hated this game. I mean, absolutely despised it. But believe me, when I started crafting better gear, fighting new mobs, and building my home, I became immersed in Terraria. There's an endless amount of content here for only $9.99 and if you were like me thinking this was just a 2D Minecraft rip-off, you couldn't be more wrong. Defiantly a must play. (And yes, like always, the PC version is far superior of the console versions.)

Terraria is an indie game for PC, console, and mobile devices. It was one of the first game to be inspired by Minecraft. As in Minecraft, you explore a randomly-generated world of blocks. Monsters lurk around every corner, and the only way to get ahead is by crafting more powerful items. You can explore alone or with friends, and in the course of play you'll discover a strange fantasy world of peril and wonder.

This does make for a much simpler game world. But it also serves to streamline a lot of the frustrating aspects of Minecraft. One of the most stressful things about Minecraft is the way that monsters can sneak up on you, as you have a first person veiw. With flat, 2D graphics, you can see all of your enemies out to get you at a glance. One thing I also enjoyed is that items don't wear out. Although I haven't played much Minecraft myself, things wearing out after you've spent hours finding resources to craft them, doesn't sound so fun. You're even given some tools right at the beginning to start off with.

Crafting options appear automatically when you have the necessary resources. When you first start out, there's a NPC standing next you who serves a guide. Talk to him, and he'll give you some basic instructions to get started. They don't expect you to trawl the wiki just to figure out what's going on. You can build houses, and fit them out with chairs, tables, and other accessories. Expanding your home is a big requirement for progression, If you build extra rooms on your house, NPCs will spawn, selling items, and helping you along your journey.

The more you progress, the tougher enemies become. The only way to cope with these ever-increasing threats is by upgrading all your gear, and it's this challenge that makes up most of the game. Your doesn't wear out, but there are so many weapon classes, and there's always just one more upgrade to buy. The world and enemies are amazing, you really do feel compelled to explore. There are so many different treasures and surprises to find.

In Minecraft, and other games similar, you often reach a point where you run out things to do. Terraria fixes that problem by including bigger and bigger enemies, and more and more cool weapons to take them down. I loved how there are so many items and weapon classes, even if some of them are a bit useless. You feel like you're exploring a real place, and figuring out how everything works in this world is part of the charm. I'm not sure if I have the patience to keep burrowing until I'm crafting my own laser guns, however this game will keep you entertained for hours. The game is decently priced, and often goes on sale. With how much you get with this game, such as Steam Trading cards, Steam achievments, (Also the option to save worlds & characters to the Steam Cloud), this game offers many enjoyable hours of single player, co-op and multiplayer, and is definitely deserving a 9/10.

Boy oh boy where do it start?

Probably the best Slime Killing Simulator I've ever played.

I've been playing this game for far too long at this point.
It was so fun at the start, but the funny thing is, it still is.

This game is deffinately a good buy for someone looking for a really fun experience alone or with a friend, or even two, three, etc.

I thought I was done with the game at the 400 hour mark, since I've played it through more times than I can count.
Then I discovered how fun it is playing with the games fine mechanics, such as wiring, detailed building and much more. At that point I went all in again and here I am.

Terraria is one of those games where it's fun until you literally have everything and done everything then it's not fun anymore..

Unless of course one of your friends got another friend to get into Terraria, and you both proceed to watch your friend absolutely suck at the game; struggling to build a house, 10 second reaction time, dying by slims, zombies and fall damage, then of course I recommend it. Especially if you plan to start fresh on a new world.

But no really, 380 hours into this, it's a pretty good sandbox game, really deep, but it starts out slow so be forgiving.

Hello, my name is Gus...

Hi, Gus

...and I'm an addict. I used to have friends. I used to go outside regularly. Hell, I had ambitions once. Then I started using Terraria...

For years, I heard friends and family rave about how awesome Terraria was. I didn't really understand what they were saying. "...defeated Wall of Flesh with Hellstone armor..." "...Skeletron dismembered me...." "...built a giant set of genitals out of gold in the jungle..."

It all sounded too weird for my tastes. Everyone insisted I should play it. I wasn't interested.

Then it was on sale for $5 during a Summer Sale, so I figured, what the hell...

Since then, I've been in a downward spiral. I became so focused on building cool houses and terraforming that I often forget to eat, sleep, and talk to those who used to be my friends. I didn't realize I had a problem until my girlfriend came into my room sobbing uncontrollably, saying, "You care more about protecting these NPCs than you care about me!" Then it turned out that I had never had a girlfriend, but was hallucinating severely due to the lack of sleep.

I've tried several times to quit, but the developers...they just...keep giving me more stuff to collect, endless amounts of things to build, and more enemies to destroy. I don't know what to do. The last time I tried to quit, someone told me that there's a collection of mods that add tons of new items, so I instantly downloaded a bunch and threw another 60 hours into the game.

With a new wiring and content update on the way, there's no end in sight. I'm crippled, broken, and alone, save for this group of fictitious strangers in the treehouse I built. I have a problem.

When you start playing the game you die a lot.
Then you get better weapons and amor and you still die a lot.
You build your first house, you die a lot defending it.
This is an adventure. An adventure of dying a lot.
And you love it.

The most used comparison for this game is Terraria/Minecraft. I shall explain the difference between Minecraft and Terraria (edit: terraria is better)
Exploration-
Minecraft- 3D world, practically limitless, several biomes, intresting underground areas.
Terraria- 2D world, you can control the size, several biomes, deeper underground areas. Underground hosts greater and cooler enemies, treasures, cave systems, etc.
Building-
Minecraft- Limited supply of blocks, blocks take up lots of space, the few interesting blocks are impossible to get easily.
Terraria- Hundreds and hundreds of blocks, blocks stack into higher quantities (M=64, T=999), blocks are easier to get.
Combat-
Minecraft- 3 bosses, 5 swords, and a bow. 5 types of armor. Not much variety for pvp, it comes down to whoever has a stronger weapon.
Terraria- 29 bosses, Swords ranging from shortswords to nyan-cat projectile swords, ranged weapons, magic, summoner weapons, etc. Pvp comes down to who has the most manuverability.
So Terraria has more good points then bad, when compared to MInecraft. So there. Shut up about this game being a rip off, you Minecraft-F-N-A-F-fanboys-who-will-rise-to-protect-"the-best-games-of-all-time".

Overview

Terraria is a 2D, pixel style, sandbox, survival game with some small RPG elements. You start off in a world where there are various different areas to explore. You can mine, build, explore, and fight bosses. There are many different items you can collect and use to progress through the game.

Opinions

This is an all time favorite of mine. I like how this game combines a sandbox survival with a linear style RPG game. The world is huge, even if you chose "Small World". I like how there are alternatives in the worlds so its not the same thing every time. This adds lots of replayability to the game. The multiplayer is really easy to set up since it has dedicated servers now. The community for this game is huge. There are millions of very loyal fans to this game, and I am definatly one of them. I see this game compared to minecraft alot because of it's art style, genre, and gameplay. Ill admit that there are lots of similarities, but I don't agree with people calling this game a 2D Minecraft. This game has more of an emphisis on linear gameplay, while Minecraft has practically none.

Ratings

Gameplay: 5/5

Replayability: 5/5

Multiplayer: 5/5

Value: 5/5

Conclution

Even at full price, this game is a steal. There is so much content and so many different ways to play this game. As of 1.3, the game is pretty much finnished and won't see anymore major updates. But the final thing that develepers are working on is mod support, which will give the game even more replayability than it already has.

Terraria.

This game.

Oh lord, where do I start?

I think I'll start off with the fact that this game is more addicting that drugs.

In the distant eye of an onlooker, Terraria would most likely be described as a "2-D Version of Minecraft". In reality, it's so much more than that. Terraria provides a large world the explore, tons of monsters to defeat, NPC's to befriend, loot to gather, a constant stream of upgrades, loot, and progress.

There is always something to do in this game, and it'll most likely benifit your progress in some way or another.

The soundtrack is amazing, the graphics are very charming and gives the game a "SNES" style to it.

If you bring some friends along for the ride, it's even better! The boss fights are amazing, and well designed. Teamwork will play a huge key if you're playing with your mates.

Doesn't matter if you're going solo or have assembled a band of merry heroes, Terraria will have something in store for you from the Eye of Cthulhu to the Moon Lord (Even after that).

And that is why I give this game a solid
9/10.

After more than 500 hours I think its time I write a review for this game.
The begining may seem stale at first, but as you progress the game will get more interesting.

Pros:
-High replay value
-It has something for everyone (Building, Action, Exploring, Mining, Character customization, Farming, and even fishing)
-It has Multiplayer
-Large community
-Strong end game content
-Biomes are very diverse
-Thousands of different items to use
-Many enemies and bosses
-Expert Mode for anyone up for a challenge and more loot

Cons:
-Grinding/farming for items is very time consuming
-The transition to Hardmode might be difficult for newer players
-Random Events can be annoying Invasions, Blood Moons, Solar Eclipses
-The flame war between Terraria and Minecraft (Stop arguing over two completely different games)
