How I Found Out About "Terraria"
I found out about Terraria the same way I use to always find games, YouTube. I randomly came across a video called "Terraria". I took a look, and instantly fell in love with what I saw, and knew I had to have the game for myself. It looked like a great combination of gerne' that I love to bits. Being a Minecraft fan since the beggining of Alpha, I knew I MUST have it.

Unfair First Impressions
When ever you ask someone about Terraria, read a review, or watch a video, 95% of the time you hear "Minecraft clone" or "2D Minecraft". Which is incorrect on so many levels. If you have heard this many times, and are thinking twice about actually playing Terraria, please read on as it is nothing like Minecraft.

Review Of Terraria
Terraria is a very unique game for what it does. There have been games like it in the past, but the amount of content and play ability is beyond anything I've ever seen before.

Terraria is a sandbox, RPG, action, etc. 2D game. It does it's thing very well. I haven't noticed any UI bugs, or ones that I have, are fixed almost instantly after the patch is released. The gameplay it provides is not only smooth, it is addicting and fun. The combat system in the game is perfect for me, and a lot of others. There are so many enemy types in this game that are not copy paste, each one does their own thing and has their own weaknesses & strength's

Example on the kind of enemies you could come across.
Normal walking/running enemies, that have a soul objective to charge you until death. These may include enemies like the zombie or skeleton.
As there are other enemies who will do the same thing, but in a different way (So not everything is copy/paste.). Like the slime enemy type, which come in many varieties, which will bounce towards you. Or the spider enemy type, which will walk on the ground, but can also climb on the walls to get to you quicker. Just to name a few.

"Well, how do I defend myself against these enemies?"
Good question. Let's get that.

Items & Furniture
This is where Terraria gets big. Even though the world's are limited, they provide so much that you could spend 800 hours of game time on a single small world and still have many things to do.

In the world of Terraria, there are alternate versions of almost everything. What I mean by this is, each world you have will not be the same. For example, there is a 50/50 chance when loading a world to have the default version of something, or the alternate. Such as the music that plays, there are different tracks for the same biomes, just depends on what random one you got. Or for textures on things like, grass, and trees. Also things like ore, in a default world you would have Copper as your basic ore, but in an alternate world, you'd have Tin as your basic ore. What this does is really expands the play time someone can spend in Terraria. Allowing a single person to play the game over and over, and never have the same experience.

Below the surface are loads of blocks, dirts, ores, and more. Ore like Copper, Tin, Lead, Iron, Silver, Platinum, Gold, Cobalt, etc. And blocks like normal dirt, clay, stone, mud, cobwebs, and so many more. You need these ores to make your weapons and armor. You can find treasure deep underground, that holds many valuable things. You can increase your maximum health by finding Life Crystals underground.

The weapon range in this game is massive. You even have magic weapons, like spell books, and mana weapons. There are also bows, swords, pickaxes, axes, guns, lazers, cannons, familiars, and so much more.

I won't get into to much detail here, but the amount of content in this game is massive, and it's still being updated. Sure, Terraria has been through some rough times with updates, but when it gets an update, the update is full of new things and changes.

Pro's & Con's (Overall Rating)
Overall, Terraria is a great game that you can spend hours of time in, and still be having fun in many years to come. It's a steal for the price of $9.99, and especially when there is a sale that lowers the game to $2.00 or less. This game is definitely a choice for sandbox gamers looking for an easy to slip into, addicting experience.

Pro's:
+Loads of content for hours of game time.
+Great combat system.
+Smooth gameplay, that's easy to slip into.
+Provides a good challenge.
+Fun and creative boss battles.
+Amazing side events that you cannot resist.

Con's:
-No infinite world option.
-Still no easy way to download mods/texture packs.

Overall rating: Is about a 14/15 (Must Own!)

I have played this game for nearly 500 hours as of the time I type this..
And I have four words to describe Terraria:
THIS. GAME. IS. AWESOME!

Also, just to make people angry as hell, let's compare it to minecraft! :D :D :D :D :D :D

MC Bosses: 2, Terraria Bosses: 21 (including mobile and console bosses)

MC Items: around 330, Terraria Items: 2748

MC Enemies: 21, Terraria Enemies: 401

MC Potions: 13, Terraria Potions: 76

MC Offensives: 5 swords, 1 bow, Terraria Offensives: 69 swords, 34 bows, 30 guns

Terraria Wins!

But hey, here's the thing:

Minecraft became popular late-2011.
Terraria released early 2011.
Terraria popular starting around September 2011.
;>

Online multiplayer + creativity: Play Minecraft.
Excitement, action, and SO MANY GUNS: Terraria.

also
69 swords
69 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


EDIT:

You can nuke waves of zombies with explosives bunnies.
You can pelt Santa Claus to death with rotten eggs.
You can murder enemies with bananas.
You have to sacrifice your guide to the gods of hell to progress the game.
And the final boss is a Pig, Shark, Dragon, Walrus mutant, named Duke Fishron.

Play it already.
