When I first got this game, I didn't expect much. I expected to die a lot, and I did. But now, I am better and am ready for expert mode, which I am doing right now. I thought little about what this game had to offer, but now, I know a lot more.

Terraria is one of those games that is irreplaceable. It's a good fit for me, and it may even be better than Minecraft. Now, I respect minecraft and all, but Terraria tops all that and then some. If Minecaft had all of the items Terraria had, it would be better. But since it has little to none of the items that this game has in store for players, I feel that Minecraft has met its maker.

Re-Logic outdid themselves with this game. That's not put lightly. This gem of a game is perfect for Minecraft lovers (which I am) and for anyone else.

Now, with update 1.4 on the horizon, it's time for me to say a few things they should add in that update. One thing they could add is another boss. This boss is just like some of the others, but it is harder even than the Moon God. I think the addition of a Sun God would be epic as an option to summon INSTEAD of the Moon God. The Sun God uses the same summoning method as the moon god, except you summon it in the day time. The Sun God would have three phases: A hand phase, where the hands are used only; an eye phase, where the eye that looks around at you is used; and a leeching phase, where it uses the leeching tongue AND the other four eyes to remove healing effects, except natural regen, from your weapons until the fight is over. Each plase takes longer to complete, and if you start it at the beginning of the day, you should be able to complete it before nightfall. If you don't defeat the Sun God before nightfall, you have to stay alive until the next morning, because if you don't, the Sun God will stop at nothing to kill you, and making it even harder for you to hit it.

That's just an idea. You don't need to take it, but if you do, I'll happily look for it.

This game is a gem. You should totally get it, and play it for as long as possible.


You should totally go for Enraged Plantera when you fight him next. He'll become harder for you to beat.

Terraria is one truly awesome experience, primarily if you are planning to enjoy with friends! It's challenging to survive the first days and to kill the firsts monsters, and after that you'll have the bosses and events to survive.
It's worth the money, i really wish they had more boss battles and diferent events to us to enjoy! that's really when this games shines!

Listen, if you want a game experience differenciating from Minecraft but better played than Starbound. Terraria is your best bet. I've had this game for a couple of years and honestly it's one of the games that I always have come back to. I'm terrible at putting words to reviews, but I can at least say that the memories made in this game are far greater than any of the other games I've played. My only complaint is the stupid fishing quests, but everyone hates that little chump anyways soooo...

This game... I don't even know where to start. It's just pure, amazing, engaging, immersive, detailed, wonderful, fun and adventure. If you don't own this game, get it right now. You will not regret it. From beginning to end it's just... Amazing, Engaging, immersive, etc. Stop reading this review and get this game. You left? Good. Now for the real review.
There is none
2-D side scroller, (sometimes) rougelike, action, adventure. I could list genres forever but that wouldn't do the game justice. Terraria is indeed a side scroller adventure game. However, it has very unique gameplay and exploration that make it so RNG based it's good. One second you are in a brand new world, the other, in an ice cavern using a new found ice blade to defend yourself against walking fluffy-snowballs trying to kill you in (no pun intended) cold blood. This game has bosses, many of which are required to fight at night. These bosses range from the eye of an ancient Deity, a giant floating skeleton, a literal wall of flesh, a mechincal version of that same skeleton from before, and many, MANY, more. The combat in this game is fairly straight-forward, you left click with a weapon in hand and you do a thing, you have a gun? You shoot it. Have a sword? You swing it. The crafting system in this game is also very straight-forward, you gather materials, go to a specific station, and you make the thing. Did I mention this is a very grindy game? Very, VERY grindy. If you don't farm for materials for say, a sword you really want, you are never going to get that sword. In lamens terms, this game practically requires you to grind and farm for what you want. This game also has an armor system. You craft the armor with materials, equip it, and if you have a full set, you get a bonus based on what set of armor you have, I won't go too much in depth about how the armor works, just know that it is a key part for a good playthrough of the game. I think that's about it.
Just buy the game. 9/10 if you are in Singleplayer
Multiplayer is a blast and great fun with friends, and it also really highlights the games strong points, 10/10
Why did you read all of that? BUY. THE. GAME.

Look! I found a spark stick!
This Ruby staff is better!
A Lazer gun!
It became useless after hardmode!
I found a new ore!
This ore's better than the last ore
This ore's even better!

Man, the moonlord is such a pushover! I'm bored.
Wooden armor.

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/.
