Summary: At first my kids didn't like this. They bought it a 6 months ago but didn't start playing until this last month. They thought it was similiar to mind craft. Turns out it is. It keeps them occupied for long amounts of time. They build caves and tools and mine stuff. I think they didn't like it at first because like most things, it takes a while to learn and get used to. They play with their cousin, and the neighbor. They will play for hours.
Summary: So I got this game hoping it would be made or developed by one of the developers of the Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition,but sadly it wasn't.Though it has some pretty fun mechanics and online multiplayer.The achievements in the game are actually quite hard to get but if you have 2 or 3 players with you it shouldn't take you long to get some gamerscore or get pretty far into the game.There are many enemies in the game and many items to find in caves and mountains.For $20 I...
Summary: There seems to be a love hate relationship with this game. some of my little gamers love it. Some don't. Looks okay to me but what do I know? I don't even have a phone that's smarter than me and I still play games that don't plug into the wall. Silly me.

Summary: While Terraria is a fun game. Parents and grandparents buying this and expecting it to be exactly like minecraft should be wary. Terraria is geared more towards fighting monsters and difficult boss enemies rather than minecraft's simpler approach to building and occassionally killing monsters. There are also some things in the game that younger players might find alarming/scary. Like minecraft tho it is one of those games best played with others online.
