Terraria

IGN
27 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Though on the surface it looks like just another “me too” indie game seeking to ride the coattails of Minecraft’s success, Terraria expands on the familiar sandbox gameplay with a greater emphasis on combat and adventure that proves very satisfying. Fresh elements – like an absurdly expansive crafting system, a broad scope of monsters to battle, and a slick retro 2D presentation – make it a stand out among the pack.
  • Pros: Improved controls, Deep crafting system, Huge worlds
  • Cons: Unintuitive crafting combos, Limited multiplayer

Terraria

BluRay Authority

  • Excerpt: As always, when a game proves to be a breakout success, similar titles flood the market. Terraria is obviously inspired by the smash Minecraft, but is it able to stand on its own? This game takes the elements you know and love from Minecraft, throws them into a side scrolling world, and puts a little more emphasis on action. As expected, you can avoid a lot of combat and just wander around the maps, but you’d miss out on what makes Terraria so special.

Terraria (Xbox 360)

ccgr.org
5 June 2013
  • Excerpt: While many have seen Terraria as a rip-off of Minecraft, that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, Terraria expands on Minecraft’s premise of sandbox survival in nearly every way by adding a huge variety of weapons and armor, ore, and boss fights. Even though Terraria is 2D, it manages to preserve the magic of exploring a new cave for the first time or digging deep into the bowels of the world to find the rarest ores.
  • Pros: Spelunking in a vibrant 2D world, destructible environments, multiplayer, more RPG elements than Minecraft
  • Cons: “Hard-Mode” bosses are too hard for single player, can feel like you have to grind to get some equipment, lack of tutorial in the PC version creates a reliance on external game guides

  • Excerpt: Terraria recently released for PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade following hot in the footsteps of the highly successful Minecraft on Xbox LIVE Arcade that the game is so often compared with. Terraria is an open world, sandbox game that starts players off with little more than a sword, pickaxe and axe.

Terraria Xbox 360 Review

DarkZero
6 April 2013
  • Excerpt: I’ll begin by stating the obvious: Yes, Terraria looks similar to Minecraft, Mojang’s runaway best-seller. However, that comparison fails to adequately describe the unique and nuanced nature of developer Re-Logic’s Terraria , a title that easily lays claim to 2013′s most addictive and innovative game. In terms of what you can expect, the game begins by placing you in a world where nearly everything is yours to harvest, craft, build, collect and kill.

  • Conclusion: Enorm motivierender Abenteuer-Sandkasten.
  • Pros: Retro-Charme, immer übersichtlich, launige Musikstücke, eingängige Musikstücke, 1-4 Spieler Splitscreen, 1-8 Spieler Online, weckt Entdeckerdrang, Steuerung gelungen, massig Gegenstände und Gegnertypen, Bosskämpfe, viele nützliche Nichtspielercharaktere zum Sammeln
  • Cons: hoffnungslos veraltet, keine Sprachausgabe, Stücke wiederholen sich, Inventar unübersichtlich
