One of the most common things people will say about Terraria for PC is that it is really just a Minecraft rip off. That I have always felt was a bit on the unfair side as Terraria has more than enough of its own ideas to make it stand out. Many other folks feel the same way as in addition to the game selling a ton of copies (across nearly all platforms) it has become something of a merchandising juggernaut too.

Open-Ended

The idea of Terraria is quite simple really. You just need to keep on surviving and getting more and more stuff that you can use to make your quality of virtual life better. Yes, that does sound very similar to what Minecraft offers, but I feel that Terraria plays rather differently to what Minecraft offers. To start with, Terraria is played in 2D and you may think that for a game of this style that is rather unimpressive, but that is not the case at all.

Build Your Own Community

You will be spending a lot of time getting deep into various areas to get ores and other items. These are what you will be using to build houses. Once you start this process, you have NPCs move in and they can do some pretty neat stuff for you. This ranges from selling items for you to healing your wounds. This is a part of the gameplay that I really like and I enjoy it far more than the boring villagers that Minecraft offers.

Take Them All Down

Like other games in this genre, Terraria is easier the more you play. The more you play, the stronger you get, the better gear you get and the better weapons you get. I really like how this game is always pushing you forward and that is probably the main reason I always get addicted to this when I fire it up. It is a very, very addictive game and the thought that you might get enough stuff to get that dream weapon is always at the back of your mind.

Play With Friends

There are bosses in the game and this is something that really sets it apart from Minecraft. I really do enjoy. The boss fights are a great deal of fun and some of these may seem impossible at first, but as long as you grind and get better stuff, they will become a cakewalk eventually.

You can team up with up to three friends to go adventuring together which is fun, but especially fun is taking on bosses together. The game does also have some competitiveness to it as well which can also be a great time.

I will admit that I do not think Terraria has the kind of mass appeal that Minecraft does. However, it is a game that I have always had a great time with and those who like old school 2D style RPG’s I have a feeling would probably have a much easier time getting into this than they would Minecraft.

Game Reviews

Terraria is an action-adventure sandbox game developed by Re-Logic that was first released in 2011. The game allows players to explore a 2D world filled with creatures, treasures, and dangers, all while crafting weapons and building structures to survive. Over the years, Terraria has become one of the most popular indie games on the market, thanks to its addictive gameplay, rich content, and impressive community.

Explore The World

One of the most notable aspects of Terraria is its sense of exploration. The game's world is procedurally generated, meaning that every time a new game is started, the layout and content of the world will be different. This adds an element of surprise and unpredictability to every playthrough, as players never know what they'll encounter next. From underground caverns to floating islands in the sky, there's always something new to discover in Terraria.

The game's combat system is also noteworthy, with a wide variety of weapons and enemies to keep players engaged. Players can craft and upgrade weapons using a variety of materials, and each weapon has its own unique strengths and weaknesses. The game's enemies range from simple slimes to powerful bosses, each with their own attack patterns and strategies. Terraria's combat is fast-paced and challenging, making it a game that rewards skill and practice.

In addition to exploration and combat, Terraria also has a strong focus on crafting and building. Players can collect resources like wood, stone, and ore, which can be used to create a variety of items and structures. From simple wooden houses to sprawling castles, players can build almost anything they can imagine in Terraria. This aspect of the game encourages creativity and experimentation, and it's a big part of what makes Terraria so appealing to players.

A Great Community

Another strength of Terraria is its community. The game has a dedicated following of players who create mods, share tips and tricks, and build impressive structures in-game. The Terraria community is active and supportive, and it's easy to find resources and guides online to help players improve their gameplay. Additionally, Re-Logic has continued to support the game with regular updates and content expansions, which have added even more depth and variety to the game.

Summary

Overall, Terraria is a game that is easy to get lost in. Its combination of exploration, combat, crafting, and building makes it a rich and rewarding experience, and its procedurally generated world means that players can enjoy it for hundreds of hours without getting bored. The game's strong community and ongoing support from the developer make it a game that is worth investing time in.
