Exploring Terraria A Second Time

30 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Welcome Time Wasters! This week I went back to play a game that I've already reviewed once before, Terraria. Normally I wouldn't review a game twice, but Terraria recently had a huge update (Version 1.2) that came out and added tons of extra content. I figured this warranted going back and giving the game another look. As I mentioned in my previous review of Terraria (over two years ago!), there is no such thing as a story.

Terraria Review

8 April 2013
  • Excerpt: "You feel an evil presence watching you." The warning message flashes on the bottom of the screen while you're busy chopping down trees in the forest. Night has fallen over the land of Terraria, a time for evil monsters to wake from their daylight slumber and assert their dominance. You need shelter if you're going to survive their deadly onslaught, but your time has run out. "The Eye of Cthulhu has awoken!" A roar from the darkness sends a chill down your spine.
  • Pros: In-depth crafting system lets you make all the weapons and items you need, Constant string of enticing rewards, Terrifying boss battles, Huge worlds begging to be explored, Tons of content for just $10
  • Cons: Poor tutorial, Cooperative mode is tricky to set up

  • Excerpt: Terraria is a dangerous game. It lures you in with strong promises of large scale fights and unique items and doesn't ever let you go. Many people are quick to dismiss Terraria because of its immediate similarities to Minecraft, and these people are really doing themselves a disservice. The story in Terraria is constantly unfolding as you play. Every action you make creates the story around you.

I Always Feel Like Something is Watching Me

28 September 2011
  • Conclusion: I need a demonite pick in order to dig through the Corruption to mine the demonite ore needed to make the demonite pick… Or I can just blow it all up with dynamite.
  • Pros: Flipping gravity and rocketing into the sky.
  • Cons: Trying (and failing multiple times) to face the first boss solo.

Dual Review: Terraria and Universe Sandbox

Crispy Gamer
5 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Some games just aren’t long enough for their own reviews, but are still important enough to deserve some attention. With that in mind we present the first of our Indy Shorts reviews. This week I turn my attention to two recently released titles on Steam: Terraria and Universe Sandbox. With great innovation comes an inevitable flood of imitation.

29 June 2011
  • Excerpt: While it might be tempting to dismiss Terraria as a simple 2D Minecraft knockoff, its heavy focus on sidescrolling combat, boss fights, and crazy weaponry reveals just as large a debt to classics like Metroid and Castlevania. It clearly rests on the shoulders of giants, but is this enough to render Terraria a satisfying experience in its own right?

Terraria (PC) Review

21 June 2011
  • Conclusion: I love Minecraft, I do. I was hooked on it for a while, and if not for a time crunch, I still would be. Even now I run a server for those of my friends with more enduring addictions. But comparing this game to Minecraft with one less dimension doesn’t even come close to describing it. It has so much to offer, and is so much slicker and more streamlined in comparison, that simply calling it a 2D alternative is the oversimplification of the century.

Dig Dig Dig!

18 June 2011
  • Excerpt: So last week a friend of mine says to me "Hey have you ever heard of Terraria?" Of course I reply with "What the heck is that?" Next thing I know I've got a gift copy sitting on my Steam account (Kudos to the max for my friend Trevor) and I'm ready to play. Three days later I surfaced. That's right I said three days, okay so there was some sleep in there but you get what I mean.

  • Conclusion: Lack of tutorial, buggy netcode and wobbly combat aside, it’s hard not to love the sense of wonder and discovery

9 June 2011
  • Conclusion: All in all, with its simple but effective interface, nostalgic sounds and vast open world, Terraria is a game of almost unlimited scope and enjoyment, provided you are willing to put the hours in to get proficient at the tasks the game requires you to perform. If you have the commitment, the game will appeal to anyone who has ever played the old-school Legend of Zelda games along with those who just enjoy exploration and combat and, of course, fans of Minecraft .
  • Pros: Engaging gameplay with aesthetically pleasing visuals and high replay value for a great price
  • Cons: Steep learning curve for new players. Graphics do not stand up to contemporary titles.
