The crafting system is easy to grasp; when you open your inventory and a list of what you can currently make will scroll down the side based on what's currently in your inventory and your proximity to certain crafting stations. The number of items you can create is staggering, and you can spend plenty of time just figuring out the best combinations of armor, weapons and accessories to suit your individual style.
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.

If you don't mind this, and are happy to go online for crafting recipes, then Terraria offers dozens and dozens of hours of rewarding exploration. The lack of in-game tutorial and the slow start are drawbacks, but at only £6, Terraria is a steal for those with the patience to reach its deepest caverns.

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.

Terraria, a game that, from what we can gather, had basically no advertising other than a tweet from Notch: Creator of Minecraft and one of the current Lords of the Internet. And so it is I bring you a review of this little gem (I mean little literally, it's less than 10mb to download).

Terraria is a fantastic game of exploration and survival. You can occasionally feel lost in its open-world that lacks any real signposting, but the simple joy of digging and crafting means you’ll keep playing to discover the naturally-occurring progress. The new version is in no-way half-assed, and it sits on the platform as if it was crafted for it from the very beginning. Terraria was a great PC game, and now it’s a great Xbox 360 game as well.

The other thing to note about all this is that Terraria isn't a static thing. The developers aren't just done with it now that it's out the door. In fact, the only reason it was released as it was is because a beta was leaked, so they all but rushed it out. It's been seeing hefty updates, adding new items and enemies, on top of refining the way the game works. It doesn't seem to be slowing down, either, meaning the game you can buy today wonít be the same game you can buy in six months time.

Terraria mag die ökologischen Zusammenhänge nicht so umfassend simulieren wie es Minecraft tut - das Entdecken des topografischen Querschnitts ist aber ebenso spannend wie im großen Vorbild. Die Ausleuchtung der verwunschenen Höhlen erlaubt faszinierende Einblicke und zahlreiche Materialien halten den Forscher- und Entwicklergeist auf Trab. Im Vordergrund steht das Überleben in einer feindseligen Umwelt, das kreative Verwirklichen spielt eine untergeordnete Rolle.

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!

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 !

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.

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.

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.
