    Still, 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.

    You stick your nose under your first sod and there you are – in another world. Terraria is not much of a Minecraft 2D rip-off, it's an addictive pursuit of perfection that entertains; even though it stinks of a sweat from the adits.

    Terraria is the best Minecraft clone on the market. Version 1.05 add many items and the Hardcore mode, which is the ultimate Terraria experience to try!

    Terraria is a small production that offers a cross between Mario and Minecraft... like a 2D platformer with craftsmanship and free construction. Quite limited in its realization, this title makes you play immediately for hours if you like the concept. Just take breaks from time to time!

    The open-sandbox creation genre is still in its infancy, and Terraria is a good, solid, and inexpensive entry.

    An interesting bidimensional twist of the well known Minecraft: Terraria is accustoming and incredibily "deep" (literally).

With great pixel art, endearing music and lots of retro aspects, terraria will occupy me for years to come. This idea is still fresh and I'm glad somebody didn't shy away from it just because of MineCraft's recent success. Expand

Terraria is moreI love Terraria, I hate people saying it's a Minecraft ripoff. So Minecraft is about mining and crafting, hence the name. Terraria is more about exploration and defeating bosses/enemies than mining and crafting. If I wrote this review in the 1.2.4 days, this would have gotten a nine, although there are so many good things in the 1.3 update, I need to give it a 10/10, also, the replay value is much better than minecraft as with minecraft, mods are usually required. Then with Terrraria, you could just replay the game with a different playstyle Expand

    amazing game that I've played all the way through. You will need this to be your primary game to play though because when you come back to youamazing game that I've played all the way through.

But overall, the content is great especially for that price-tag, it's a steal. Expand

The art direction is reminiscent of some of the later offerings on the SNES, which in my book is a good thing. The game is about exploration and crafting, much like minecraft, though the crafting is done through an intuitive menu where it shows you what you can make, based on what materials you have. There is also a guide character that will give you helpful tips, but in the end is more a nuisance as he has the tendency to open the door to your house and let monsters in. I think an option to turn him off would have been a good thing. Still, the game is quite fun overall. Expand

    Terreria is similar to minecraft, yes, but has a much more diablo loot feel to it.
    honestly if you threw mario, minecraft, castlevania and diablo into the game-o-matic you'd get this.

    The only reason I'm giving it an 8 is because it gives me severe headaches. it's probably the low-res
