    A very good port, with all the "cross" functionalities you would expect, for a very good game.

    On a machine like the PS4, it feels like so much of the power available is just being ignored. If you have the PC version of Terraria, I wouldn’t jump on the PS4 instalment, but a handheld version could definitely be a nice addition to your library of games.

    The PS4 version of Terraria adds bigger worlds, new enemies and new bosses to an already addictive formula, and certainly represents the best place to begin if you still haven't tried any previous edition. Nonetheless, it is not worth your money again if you already own it on any other platform.

    An amazingly addictive and satisfying game with tons of replay value and is well worth every penny.

From the platforming, to the fighting, to the farming, and from riding a bunny to killing a god this, game has so much content in it that despite how many hours I have in this game, I feel that I've just scratched the surface.

    I've been playing since the Xbox 360 version and was happy to know that they put it on to the next gen consoles. Terraria has been a childhood classic to me and I still play it to this day.

    The music is nostalgic. In the first several minutes if the game you could start to hear yourself humming to it. I've never had a game do that to me since halo.

    There is a huge replay value to this game. Considering that there is over 3,000 items in this game, and plenty of different explorable biomes, caves, you can even go to hell if you want cuz why not.

    I could go on for hours and just tell you what you're missing out on but I just want to end it off by saying that you should get up and grab yourself a copy of terraria

I know that is a bold statement, but never has there been a game that I bought for 3 separate consoles (Xbox 360, Steam and PS4) and played all the way through on each one like there was no tomorrow.

    The game starts out as a 2D Mindcraft-esque sandbox explorer, but slowly evolves into an insanely in depth platform adventure/shooter with by far the most expansive crafting system in existence thus far. The amount of materials that exist to build and construct with honestly seems infinite. In all of my 3 playthroughs, I still don't think I've seen every item. The game's item count is in the 2 or 3 thousands and they are still adding new things. The weaponry, accessory and clothing options are vast, with hundreds of ways to customize your character and the abilities that help you play the game. My best strategy to play the overall game is to first set up a base with dorms for NPCs up above, then a basement/dungeon with all the crafting stations and inventory chests below, and under that a tunnel straight down to hell. You will find endless things to do along the way, having over 100 hours of exploring within each of the 10+ worlds you can randomly generate. With the ability to delete and re-create worlds at will, there is no limit to how much you can collect and build.

    I think this may also be one of the most challenging gaming experiences I have ever undertaken. There are boss battles that require intense preparation. In Terraria, that preparation could include gathering materials, brewing potions, constructing your own arena that helps you fight the boss to your liking, building a house and setting up a nurse near the boss arena so she can heal you during the fight, etc. There are so many ways to go about achieving your goals. Not only are the items vast, but the best part about the game is that the environment is completely manipulatable. There is nothing you can't build, and nothing you can't destroy.

    Terraria is a massive achievement from such a small team of developers. It's almost impossible to describe, but I guess one could say it resembles Mindcraft meets Castlevania meets Zelda meets...something way better than all of those games combined. Warning: This game should receive an 'LR' rating for Life Ruining. It is that good.

Lots of content and fun to be had with it. Not only that, it makes you feel like you are playing the old Marios in a way again. If you've ever played Minecraft and enjoyed it, you'll enjoy this. It's got lots more content, more bosses, armours, biomes, mobs, and everything else. Expand

    About 10 hours into my first world and character.

    So far I am loving the aesthetics, explorability, music, etc.

    I HATE the ONLINE function. I had people randomly coming into my game with a friend, they kept attempting to PVP my new character and instead detroyed vast amounts of my own world. There is NO OPTION TO BAN/KICK. I find that extremely game breaking to play with friends/online.

    I find the attack patterns of the sword are horrendous as slimes can attack from below but you cannot attack them as the are.

    Liking the game more and more as I explore my personalized random world, finding different ores, weapons, armor, etc. and slowly crafting newer and slightly better armor than the last. It's an extremely slow process so far.

    BUY IT!

I haveI love Terraria this is one of the best games I have ever played. I have over 340 hours on steam. Bought it and played it like 24 / 7. I have to say that the PC Version also has some small bugs but the rest of the game is just epic. I have seen that this game is on sale for PS4 and ofcourse I had to buy it immediatly as I seen this game is also for PS4. The sad story is that the controlls are hell. The controlls for the console in this game are even worse than anything you could think of. I have tried to change the controlls, even tried to use my mouse and the keyboard on my console but the game does not allow me to use that no matter what. So I have tried playing this game on PC via PS4 Remote Play and yeah the keyboard is working but only for the menu. The rest is even worse than with the controller because changing inputs for the keyboard is also not working. So I a have no other choice but playing this epic game with the worst controlls I ever had to deal with on a consol game. I have tried to learn the controlls but the after awhile the stress gauge is breaking the limit and I just fall in rage and quit the game. Well one of the best games with worst controlls ever made and no way and no support for mouse and keyboard. So I sadly have to keep playing alone on PC. I have bought this game to play with my friends on the console because they don't own a pc. Things could be so easy but sadly they're not. The game itself is 10/10 points the controlls are over 9000 below 0 out of 10. Expand
