Not much to say really. It's awesome. A lot of monsters, events. Crafting done right. And multiplayer that works great. Could not recommend more.

I really want to like this game. I watch others play it on youtube all the time and it looks like they have fun with it. Seems like it has a ton of potential.... but i hate it. I've got about 5 or 6 hours played now and every time i try to play i want to punch my monitor and snap my keyboard over my knee. And its for one reason: the controls are the most frustrating thing ever.

-Esc should open the pause menu
-pressing graple while you're stuck to a wall should ungraple you
-why the hell it my dude throwing rope across the room when i try to extend the rope further?
-kept trying to build more ceiling and the thing auto targeted the floor. this one made me the maddest. somehow i guess i turned on the smart cursor feature. took forever to figure that one out.
-Why can't you jump up while grappeled or holding a rope?

If they fixed these things and added wall sliding like in mega man x then the game might be bearable. As is, i just keep talking myself into trying it again and then end up yelling at my screen (and scaring my dogs) within 10 minutes every time. Most frustrating game i've played in a very long time.

This game is a major time sink, as long as you have some sort of goal in mind you can easily kill a few hours playing this game. As such it also takes quite a while to get through a single playthrough if you start from scratch, but still there is loads of content to sift through ever since the 1.3 patch.

Really good game. A bit like minecraft but in 2D and with boses and more stuff. With a goal and with less sandboxines. Maybe it is maybe not like minecraft but still as good.

Terraria seemed to be a fun game, but crashed when I chopped 2 trees. Tried this with any character and world size. Do not buy until they make a hotfix.

Bad game. No content.
700+hrs/10 would spend years playing again.

SRS TIEM:
2D Platformer with a STRONG emphasis on crafting and character progression. Almost infinite replayability, amazing COOP, challenging bosses, beautiful soundtrack, recently updated/currently supported, loads of achievements...
I honestly couldn't recommend this game more.
Better than Minecraft. Paved the way for Starbound. Referenced in many other titles.

BUY THE DAMNED GAME ALREADY!

Before you read, Terraria is NOT a copy of Minecraft.

In my opinion, Minecraft is a fun and really good game for building, but I stopped playing it of boredom a couple months after getting it. I did not play it every day. Now, Terraria is good for Building, Exploring, Fighting, Destroying, and is rewarding. Minecraft is very unforgiving; When you die you lose all your stuff and you usually can't get it back in time. In Terraria you can choose to only drop your money (It's easy to get it back.), you can choose to lose some of your items, or you can make your character die forever so you need to make a new one. I have been playing Terraria for +150 hours and I am still not bored of it the slightest bit. Also, if you still think it is a "Stupid Rip-off of Minecraft" I am fine with that, BUT notice Terraria has 14 bosses... in PC. Minecraft has 2. Terraria has +70 Swords And +50 Armor sets while Minecraft has less than 10 of both of those. I hope this review helped you chose wether to buy this game or not, And thank you for reading this far!

So, in my opinion,
Minecraft is the superior for building and has almost endless worlds horizontally.
Terraria is the superior for Fighting, Exploring, And looting. It is also very addictive and it is hard to pull yourself away from it.

Honestly, I get on Terraria for multiple hours a day and I get on it every day.

Also, The bosses are hard, especially during Expert or Hardmode, and they give you a sense of achievment when you beat them.

If your looking for a review on this game you've come to the wrong place, but if your looking for an outstanding pie recipe you've come to the right place.

Ingredients:
1. 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
2. 1/2 cup white sugar
3. 1/2 cup brown sugar
4. 1/4 cup water
5. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
6. 1 pinch salt
7. 5 apples - peeled, cored and sliced
8. 1 pastry for double-crust pie

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
2. Combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar, water, cinnamon, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, remove from heat and set aside.
3. Roll out half the pastry to fit a 9-inch pie plate. Place bottom crust in pie plate; pour in apple slices.
4. Roll out top crust into a 10-inch circle. Cut into 8 (1-inch) wide strips with a sharp paring knife or pastry wheel. Weave the pastry strips, one at a time, into a lattice pattern. Fold the ends of the lattice strips under the edge of the bottom crust and crimp to seal.
5. Pour butter-sugar mixture over top of pie, coating the lattice, and allowing any remaining sauce to drizzle through the crust.
6. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake until the crust is golden brown, the caramel on the top crust is set, and the apple filling is bubbling, 35 to 40 more minutes. Allow to cool completely before slicing.

Terraria is a legend. It's a 2D crafting/survival game with simple graphics, thousands of craftables and tons of bosses (26 on PC, to be precise) to beat.
You want a challenge? You come at the right place - to beat certain opponents you need skill... or wide knowledge and very very long stage preparations ^^'
You seek fun? There is a multiplayer and lots of ways to have fun and/or prank your friends ;)
And if you like building - you're NEVER going to get bored ^^ Build your very own Floating Gardens, underground dungeon(s) or any type of functional electronic circuit. In 1.3.1 patch they added logic gates, sensors and lots of tools to help you with wiring.

There are 3 types of character-based difficulity and 2 types of world-based difficulity. You beat every boss? Nice! Now try it on Expert Mode world - and don't get surprised :D
Also, after defeating certain boss, world enters Hardmode. Difficulity spike is real ^^
Sometimes to spice things up an event occurs - during which event-only enemies swarm you in hordes :)

Of course, there are bugs. Sometimes randomly generated world is unintentionally difficult (especially for newly creater characters). But... that's about it. Other type of issues are extremely rare (I didn't encouter any in 200+ hours of gameplay) ^^

The main thing you should know about this game is soundtrack 12/10, its so amazing, even when you will be full of this game you still will play it because of soundtrack :D. By the way, don't be too mean and buy it(about 3-4$)
Music is beautiful and changes depending on which biome/area we are in. Yeah! it has lots of music :)

Lets go to the point body :

It is a wide-open sandbox style game; we can edit the terrain and go anywhere we want to.

The game starts in a randomly computer generated world. We start with three basic tools: a pickaxe for mining, a shortsword for combat, and an axe for woodcutting. Many resources, notably ores, can be found while mining or exploring underground caves. The player starts off with 100 health, which can eventually be increased up to 500 by finding special items (life hearts and fruit ones)underground. Some resources and most items may only be found in certain areas of the map, stored in common and rare containers, or dropped by certain enemies. The player uses resources to craft new items and equipment at an appropriate crafting station for that recipe. For example, tables or other items can be crafted at a work bench and bars can be smelted from ore at a furnace. Several advanced items in Terraria require multiple crafting operations where the product of one recipe is used as the ingredient for another.

You can encounter many different enemies in Terraria such as simple slimes, zombies, demon eyes, and various region-specific enemies. The occurrence of certain enemies depends on several factors including time, location, random events, and player interactions. We can fight against enemies with swords, bows, guns, magic spells, and other weapons. Each map will have several zones with unique items and unusual enemies.

To sum everything up: gameplay and musical design is so great. You will be an idiot if u had some money to spend and and didn't buy it.

50/10 worth playing.
