Overall we have a fun game on our hands here. This will only get better when I tell you its $10! I know again with the $10 games, but let's be honest here, would you prefer a $10 game that's worth more or would you prefer to buy a $50 game that's worth less? Terraria mines 5 GiN Gems out of 5 for being a perfect example of a good Time Waster.

Terraria is simply put, way too much fun for anyone’s good. I had to puff up this review by just telling you about how to play the game because I can’t find anything to complain about. The game is as much Minecraft as it is Super Metroid, or Legend of Zelda 2, where the emphasis on fighting and adventuring, but adding in a twist to the same basic fundamentals of crafting that made Minecraft such a success. Plus it probably doesn’t hurt that the game is fairly easy to play, runs on any hardware out there, and is suited for gamers of all ages and generations. Add in the fact that there is a fully supported multiplayer right out of the gate that has options for both cooperative play and for PvP and you have a 2D indie title with some serious staying power. Do yourself a favor, and buy a four pack of this game, your friends will thank you.

Terraria is a great adventure, one of the best sandbox games around, and an absolute steal for ten bucks on Steam. It's well worth checking out for anyone, regardless of how they feel about Minecraft. Despite having one fewer dimension, Terraria hides greater depth than its 3D cousin.

Terraria is a perfect fit on the Vita. Playing this adventure on a handheld is a huge bonus to a game that was already incredibly well made. Now you can mine for hellstone while sitting on the throne or on a bus, so you're always making up an excuse to play for five more minutes. But watch those minutes spiral into the thousands without you even realizing it. And once you go as far as you think you can, you unlock hard mode, and there are even more items to craft and bosses to defeat. Terraria includes the updates to the PC version, so there are lots more bosses, items, and even biomes than when the game was first released. It takes a special game to make you fully care about all the little activities you're taking part in while still keeping your eye on a faraway prize, and Terraria deftly balances those ideas.

WindowsIndie Game Magazine
Terraria is the new definition of value for money. There are three world sizes and a seemingly infinite number of combinations and world possibilities. Players have so much choice over the way that they play each time. It is possible to create up to five different characters, so players can take it upon themselves to play each in a different style. When it comes down to it though, Terraria epitomizes this gaming generation – no other game draws teamwork, exploration and epic battles into such an enthralling package.

If you're a fan of adventure platforms like Metroid and Castlevania, but you always felt they could be a little more sandbox, Terraria is a must have. Don't judge the book by its cover. Let Terraria surprise you.

All in all, with its simple but effective interface, nostalgic sounds and vast open world, Terraria is a game of almost unlimited scope and enjoyment, provided you are willing to put the hours in to get proficient at the tasks the game requires you to perform. If you have the commitment, the game will appeal to anyone who has ever played the old-school Legend of Zelda games along with those who just enjoy exploration and combat and, of course, fans of Minecraft. However, even if you don't really categorize yourself as a wearer of one of those labels, you should give Terraria a try anyway. It might just make you a fan. Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got caves to explore.

Terraria can be enjoyed in several ways. You can treat the game like a classic action-adventure game and explore its depths, rigorously searching for materials and hunting enemies. You can take your time and see the sights at your leisure. You can even play architect and build houses, mansions, and lairs galore. Terraria is your sandbox, and you can play in it however you like. Re-Logic has given gamers the opportunity to either enjoy Terraria as a side-scrolling action-adventure title or like a toy that they can play with for hours on end. Either way you look at it, Terraria is a sandbox that you won’t be able to get away from regardless of whether or not you’ve already invested entire days.

Though on the surface it looks like just another "me too" indie game seeking to ride the coattails of Minecraft's success, Terraria expands on the familiar sandbox gameplay with a greater emphasis on combat and adventure that proves very satisfying. Fresh elements – like an absurdly expansive weapon crafting system, a broader scope of monsters to battle, and a slick retro 2D presentation – make it a stand out among the pack. Hell, it took all the resolve I could muster just to shut the game down long enough to write this review. That's rare indeed.

Terraria cresce a ogni patch acquistando sempre nuove sfaccettature. Gli sviluppatori hanno deciso di seguire la strada già intrapresa da Minecraft, strada percorribile grazie al successo di pubblico ottenuto (ricordate: supportare la scena indie fa bene anche al vostro portafoglio). Per decidere se acquistarlo o meno dovete rendervi prima conto dei suoi limiti tecnici, ma anche capire quanto questi siano ininfluentis sull'esperienza di gioco, che finisce per essere appassionante e profonda. Comunque, se i vostri occhi vi creano pregiudizi su perle del genere, strappateli.

Феноменальный успех неизменно пребывающей в разработке «песочницы» Minecraft, уже принесшей Маркусу Персону (Markus Persson) €23 млн., не мог остаться незамеченным. Тем более странно, что первый проект «по ее мотивам» сделали всего три человека — без финансовой поддержки солидных издательств, за стахановские шесть месяцев, на голом энтузиазме. Причем авторы не пытались по-быстрому заработать себе на Ford Focus, «выехав» на народной любви к оригиналу, и неустанно строили игру своей мечты. Результат превзошел самые оптимистичные ожидания: за первые сутки их творение купили 50 тысяч раз, а через неделю это число выросло до 200 тысяч.

WindowsGameTrailers
In the end, Terraria presents an experience similar to Minecraft, but it manages to distinguish itself with a heavy dose of breakneck fun that Minecraft often lacks. There's something for everyone here, and a host of free updates, a polished retro presentation, and a reasonable $10 price tag make this sandbox more than worth digging into.

Inaccessibility is the one flaw that haunts this great game. The early hours are punishing because you have no idea what you're supposed to do, and the lack of direction makes Terraria initially off-putting. But after sinking dozens of hours into this impressive game, you'll wonder how you could ever have been frustrated. There are so many surprises to uncover and rewards to unlock that once you get the basics down, you'll be hard pressed to tear yourself away. Whether you're trying to break shadow orbs in the corrupted land or constructing a labyrinth passageway to combine water with lava, there's always something demanding your attention. Terraria is a unique and engrossing experience that is extremely difficult to tear yourself away from once you become invested in its enticing world.

Terraria ist ein Spiel, bei dem man sich den Spaß oft selber machen muss – mit einer riesigen Welt zum Erkunden, tonnenweise herstellbaren Gegenständen und drei wirklich herausfordernden Boss-Kämpfen sollte das allerdings nicht schwerfallen. Materialien sind schnell zu finden und jedes neue Item, sowie jede gefundene Kiste oder entdecktes Gebiet fördern ungemein den Erkundungstrieb. Terraria ist für 10 Euro via Steam erhältlich.

(Checkup) Ich bin echt überrascht, wie viel sich getan hat, seit ich Terraria vor vielen Monaten das erste Mal gestartet habe. Der neueste Patch, mit dem der Hardmode eingefügt wurde, bietet mehr Inhalt und vor allem mehr zusätzliche Spielzeit als viele kostenpflichtige DLCs. Glücklicherweise ist das Spiel nicht nur mit Inhalten vollgestopft. Was hinzugefügt wird, ergibt auch Sinn. Die Alchemie, die neuen Mineralien, der »Hallow«, alles fügt sich schön in das schon gelungene Terraria-Erlebnis ein. Wer Terraria bislang noch nicht ausprobiert hat, für den wird es jetzt langsam wirklich Zeit.

Mit der Möglichkeit unterwegs zu spielen, der guten auf Vita abgestimmten Steuerung sowie dem Teilen von Speicherständen im PlayStation-Netzwerk hat diese Umsetzung einen dicken Stein in meinem Brett! Terraria wird natürlich kein neues Spiel; das Wühlen, Bauen, Jagen und Entdecken ist nicht so umfangreich wie im großen Minecraft und es fehlt eine bessere Einführung in die handwerklichen Möglichkeiten. Aber es ist eben auch genau so faszinierend und motivierend wie zuvor. Ich darf auf dem Handheld sogar mit Konsolenspielern losziehen – in der U-Bahn werkle ich dann in Ruhe weiter. Würde das Fadenkreuz bei Berg- und Hausbau nicht zittern, hätte sich das rundum gelungene Erlebnis glatt einen zusätzlichen Punkt verdient. So bleibt es bei derselben guten Wertung.

Yeah, You'll have the most fun just trapping friends and doing things like dropping lava on them.. then stealing their dropped coin. Creative world PVP is the best. It would be nice if there was a server browser or matchmaking to join in with others, but you'd probably just get your hard work trolled anyway i guess but that side of things is pretty underdeveloped. At least multiplayer worked when it worked.. with very few bugs. Hex, this is I think the second game ever to bring together this many members of the gg team at once..

At the end of the day, most games are rubbish. Nothing lives up to your expectations, unless you are a mean-spirited and cynical person. Luckily most reviewers are, or at least become so rapidly. The world is just so full of awful shit. Now and again, you meet a cursebreaker who lifts the dark spell and renews your faith in all things gamey. Take Terraria. It didn’t meet any of my expectations. Terraria looked like it was going to be bizarre nonsense. But it totally fails to live up to that expectation. If an immersive lark of a game that won’t tax your wallet, your graphics card or your brain appeals, I’d stop reading and get exploring the cheerful depths of Terraria.

Terraria est donc au final un titre extrêmement complet sur le plan du gameplay, qui se révèle particulièrement addictif pour quiconque daigne lui laisser une chance de montrer ce qu’il recèle derrière son aspect visuel bancal. Fun, rapide, étonnant sur de nombreux points, le tout porté par une action omniprésente, un système de craft exemplaire et une partie « build-game » ô combien prenante, Terraria est un modèle du genre, qui prouve une fois de plus que quelques méga-octets suffisent à fournir une aventure longue et intelligente… Pour peu que vous dénichiez quelques curieux, avides de vivre l’expérience, ce serait un tort de bouder votre plaisir. Terraria est bon et saura vous fournir autant de montées d’adrénaline que de fous rires entre amis. Un joli tour de force de la part de Re-Logic.

Terraria, c'est une bonne, même très bonne, alternative à Minecraft, vous vous éclaterez aussi bien avec des amis qu'en solo. Ce jeu est à conseiller à ceux qui veulent plus de challenge que dans les autres jeux type "Bac à Sable" . C'est très addict, comme gameplay, vous voudrez toujours améliorer votre équipement et allez poutrer des nouveaux monstres avec les nouvelles Mise à Jour qui viennent perpétuellement rajouter du contenu,comme des musiques,des PNJ,des biomes et plein d'autres choses ! Terraria c'est bon ! Mangez-en ! Mais avec modération.

There's a reason Terraria has sold a few hundred thousand copies in the first few months it's been on sale. It's because, if Terraria really does have a bottom, no one can be bothered to go find it. They're having far too much fun on the surface, and the spaces in between.

Per definire e consigliare questo gioco dobbiamo necessariamente rivedere il nostro modo di concepire il divertimento. Terraria propone una progressione stratificata e lenta, graduale, in cui ogni conquista si ottiene con fatica e sudore, ed ogni nuovo "upgrade" ci spinge ad andare ancora avanti, senza fermarci mai. ReLogic si è data molto da fare per garantire ai propri utenti un prodotto singolare, in grado di coinvolgere gli amanti di un'esperienza allargata e vastissima. La calma è la virtù dei forti ma, una volta raggiunto il centro della terra, la frenesia con la quale dovremo convivere sarà degna di un kill’em all vecchio stile. Se siamo anche solo lontanamente incuriositi da questo piccolo grande progetto il nostro consiglio è quello di spendere subito i 9.90 Euro necessari per installare il gioco sul nostro personal computer, qualsiasi esso sia.

In Terraria habe ich mich verliebt wie in meine erste Freundin: Hals über Kopf und ohne einen Gedanken an die schlaflosen Nächte zu verschwenden, die ich mir dadurch bereiten würde. Wo andere Spiele Witz und Originalität versprühen, trieft Terraria förmlich davon. Zugegeben, es sieht gruselig aus, und der Designer des Fummel-Inventars gehört ausgeschimpft und in die Ecke gestellt. Aber meine Güte, so viel Spaß hatte ich in einer virtuellen Welt schon lange nicht mehr! Auch wenn’s kitschig klingt: Geben Sie dem hässlichen Entlein eine Chance. Ein schöner Schwan wird das zwar nicht mehr - aber dafür hat das Entlein echt was auf dem Kasten.

Allt som allt så är Terraria en uppenbar hyllning till, inte bara Minecraft, utan spelmediet i stort. Pistoler, granater, lasersvärd, vanliga svärd, 16-bitarsgrafik, episka boss-strider, änterhakar och multiplayerstöd är alla ingredienser som lämnar mig lycklig och glad efter varje spelsession. Har du en hundring att avvara så bör du absolut titta närmare på Re-logics hejdundrande indie-succé.

Terraria est une petite production qui nous propose un croisement entre Minecraft et Mario. De la plate forme 2D avec de l'artisanat et de la construction libre. Assez limité dans sa réalisation (en l'état), ce titre reste néanmoins immédiatement prenant, au point de vous accrocher des heures si vous adhérez au concept. Faites des pauses de temps en temps !

Non, Terraria n'est pas une pâle copie de Minecraft. Certes, il en est diablement inspiré, mais il propose tout de même une vraie alternative en s'orientant plus vers l'action tout en délaissant le côté créatif. C'est un choix et il n'est pas impossible que des joueurs le préfèrent au jeu de Notch. Quoi qu'il arrive, à seulement dix euros, Terraria reste une vraie expérience pour ceux qui sauront garder l'esprit ouvert.

Negativity aside, we’ve got a real winner on our hands with Terraria. There are plenty of unique weapons to keep you busy, which are crafted with plenty of unique ores found in the core of the earth or even the sky. With great risk comes great reward though, so I’ll see you in heaven or hell to mine those minerals on a server at some point!

Minecraft still has Terraria beat when it comes to immersion. The two-dimensional perspective distances rather than drawing players in. Building isn’t as satisfying, and exploration feels more like slow-motion Metroid than pure adventuring. And in spite of helpful NPCs, Terraria still necessitates extracurricular wiki readings. Still, Terraria is a potent distraction tool. Buried treasures will always have that allure. The game gives you a pickaxe and points your nose downward. What else are you gonna do but dig?

Bien plus que le simple clone en 2D de Minecraft que les premières minutes de jeu peuvent laisser craindre, Terraria reprend avec bonheur la formule gagnante du jeu phénomène de Mojang, en y ajoutant des petites idées de son cru et en le poussant au final beaucoup plus loin. Si les actions de miner, fabriquer et construire sont toujours de mise, Terraria est surtout une ode à l'exploration et à la découverte, avec des mécaniques classiques de power gaming qui se cachent derrière le simulateur de coups de pioche. La simplicité de l'ensemble a ses avantages et ses inconvénients, avec un style graphique dépouillé qui n'aura pas que des fans et un mode multijoueur un peu rudimentaire, mais Terraria mérite beaucoup mieux que le qualificatif de simple clone, et pourrait se faire une place bien à part dans le paysage si le suivi des développeurs est à la hauteur. Vu le succès actuel du jeu, on peut légitimement l'espérer.

Souffrant d'une ergonomie douteuse et de menus mal fichus, cette version PS3 de Terraria n'en demeure pas moins impressionnante au niveau de son contenu et de sa durée de vie. Les fans d'exploration, d'aventure et de gestion à la Minecraft apprécieront sans doute ses mécanismes de jeu addictifs mais l'absence du clavier et de la souris se fera cruellement ressentir. Quand on sait que la version PC est régulièrement affichée à moins de 3 euros sur Steam, nous ne pourrons que difficilement vous conseiller d'investir dans ce portage à 20 euros.

Terraria is an interesting game capitalising on the recent exploration and building genre that has thrived since the launch of Minecraft. This Xbox version suffers from some poor user interface and control decisions and a general lack of information which can frustrate many new players.

If I were to make one suggestion to the Terraria developers - other than “please make all the pixels bigger”, or "actually save my location when I save and exit the game" - it would be to change the marketing strategy for this game to focus on what it does best, rather than talking up the frankly sub-par mining and exploring aspects of the title. Terraria works best if you consider it a co-op side-scrolling action-adventure game with the ability to carve new tunnels through the levels - but approach it hoping for a 2D retro-styled Minecraft and you’ll quickly go crying back to Mojang’s skirts.
