    Taking Terraria with you on-the-go puts an exciting spin on the absorbing formula, and the Vita version thankfully doesn't skimp on the goods. There's no depth sacrificed here.

    Terraria really is a joy to play, you can spend hours, upon hours doing things and seemingly get nowhere. But that works, it isn’t a stressful game, it is very relaxing and something that will become a permanent fixture in your gaming life. The possibilities are endless and the only barrier is your own imagination.

    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.

    It's essentially the same, full-featured game that console and PC owners have been playing, only with the added bonus of being able to take your terraformed world with you wherever you go, in addition to being able to bring it online.

    Terraria on Vita is a joy to play and just different enough from everything else to stand out.

I own hundreds of physical games for PS3, Xbox 360, PS Vita and 3DS. I have dozens of games via digital for all those platforms but Terraria is keeping my attention something fierce. I didn't buy into the Minecraft phenomenon but was captured by Terraria's charming 2D 8Bit graphics, crafting, building and exploring. If you haven't had a chance to play this do yourself a favor and download the demo. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Great game! You can walk over the big world, craft many items, and kill other players in PvP using powerful Minishark, Blue Moon, and other cool things. I beat many bosses each day, until I'll kill the Wall of Flesh!
    It isn't Minecraft 2D, it's more.

    Clever and addictive, this VITA port was outstanding.
    But since last update (may 2015), the game crashes every 10 minutes. I am not joking,
    Clever and addictive, this VITA port was outstanding.
    But since last update (may 2015), the game crashes every 10 minutes. I am not joking, every ten humpf minutes. It has been six months now and no correction has been applied despite the community anger. It is unbelievable to see how the developper '505 games' don't give a damn to this port nor the VITA players.
    Avoid this game at all cost, it is no more playable.

    11/2017 Edit: It has been fixed in summer 2016 (one year and a half...), since then, no probs (note 3->9). The best way to enjoy Terraria 1.2 on the go until the switch version comes out.
