Terraria Review (PlayStation Vita)

Softpedia
7 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I rationally know that if I venture too far or insist on exploring at night, I will get eaten by some powerful and brutish creature, but there’s so much 2D space to cover and dominate that Terraria instills a spirit of exploration that’s never fully satisfied.
  • Pros: + Occasions for creativity, + Art style
  • Cons: - Can become frustrating, - The tutorials are not very helpful

Terraria is just as magical and content-rich on consoles as it is on the PC, although the controls aren't ideal for every situation.

  • Summary: Many games set out to be a sandbox--an interactive world filled with options and untapped potential--but Terraria embodies this concept in a way few games do. The game drops you into a 2D pixelated world with a handful of tools and tells you to explore, dig, build, and, oh yeah, survive.
  • Pros: Massive worlds with freedom to explore how you want, Plenty of items to both craft and discover, Easy to invite friends along for the journey, Tutorial and map make the learning curve more manageable
  • Cons: Console controls take getting used to, No easy way to create permanent servers

  • Excerpt: Another night, another full-on zombie and floating eyeball invasion. The safety of morning will come soon enough, and with it, some key decisions. You should probably chop down some trees for new materials. Though, maybe you might want to mine for some ore to forge better gear.
  • Pros: Absolutely tons to do, Everything can be mined, chopped, and rebuilt, New content for PC expatriates
  • Cons: Early game is a drag, Occasional slow down, Crafting without a mouse

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • Excerpt: The statement is reductive, but true: Terraria is a two-dimensional Minecraft . The game plops you into a randomly generated world—a side-scrolling cross-section of planet with woods and water on the crust and a labyrinth of caves beneath.
