This game is good.

If minecraft is too ugly and boring for you, like it is for me, this game is perfect for you.

This is the best roguelike i've ever played.

Just don't bother with multiplayer unless you know each and every single person playing with you, because online is filled with 12 year olds.

I've had pirated this game before buying it but i probably blew more than 2k hours into this piece of gem of a game.

You can start from a spark stick and be Harry Potter, to a bloody meowmere for the cat enthusiasts. If you're looking for fighting, exploring and building well then this game is for you It has all of that and if you're looking for a challenge you can go expert mode which makes enemies harder and bosses drop sweet new loot or hardcore mode where if your character dies it's gone forever. The amount of unique weapons, armor and accessories makes building your character to a specific role be really effective. The game starts off slow but it starts getting better and better each hour you play.

There's a lot of aspects and challenges that makes this game very fun. I've played it non stop with friends and there's always something different in every play through. Especially since the start of Tmod loader, you can add tons of mods to your game, making the possibilities of what you can do, or want to do, endless.

I higly recommend this game to friends. But... One thing, When I start play in my world, my character moves quite slowly, making it very hard to get around. I have heard from my friends saying that they are having the same issue. Please fix this issue. Thank You!

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.
