    Also on the Nintendo 3DS Terraria is an engaging and creative experience which may drain lots of your spare time and then more.

    Terraria arrives on the 3DS as the great sandbox game we all know. Unfortunately there are some compromises in this version, such as the lack of any online feature: it is still a great game, but probably this 3DS edition is among the least appealing ones.

    Some patches may improve this experience, and it's a solid entry for those with a New 3DS that fancy some Terraria on the go.

    Terraria comes to Nintendo 3DS with many limitations, such as the lack of a translation into Spanish and the 3D graphics. Despite its small flaws, it remains the colossal work that offers hours and hours of fun.

    Terraria on 3DS works to an extent: the interface is just fine, but the sheer size of the game's world is reduced when compared to other versions, and that has an impact on the overall experience.

    Terraria is a large and content-packed free-roaming experience that will bring dozens or even hundreds of hours of gameplay to those who commit themselves to it. Sadly the 3DS conversion had to let go of some aspects that make Terraria a more appealing game on other systems and this portable incarnation is also affected by several problems in its visual performance.

I've played Minecraft before but was bored with content, whereas with Terraria, I felt I want to keep digging/fighting to discover the next best thing - be it weapons or monsters. Terraria feels more "purposeful" to me in that you build yourself up for harsher environments and bigger monsters. And the bonus with the 3DS version? I can play anytime anywhere! The world may be slightly smaller than the PC, but I happily trade that with the ability to play anytime anywhere. Well worth it on 3DS. Expand

While it does have a lot of bugs that need patching, it is the best of both worlds for any Terraria fan.It has all the bosses and events from Console and Mobile and also adds new gameplay features, such as bottom screen block placement. While the PC version is the best version thus far, the 3DS version is a close second in my opinion. Expand
