Synopsis


Imagine a world where your creativity could run wild, a virtual sandbox that allowed you to explore, create and plunge into action-packed battles. The only limit is the breadth of your imagination as you journey through exotic environments, encounter fantastic beasts and fight against nefarious foes. Will you navigate this world alone, the master of all you survey? Or do you prefer to bring along friends and family for nonstop creative fun? A world of fun awaits you — are you ready to build it from the ground up?

Get ready to experience the world-building action you enjoyed on your PC, PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 with a host of enhancements in Terraria, a creative adventure that lets your daydreams run wild. See the game in a whole new way with high-definition graphical enhancements, thousands of brand-new items and mini caves, biomes, cheats and pots with unique backgrounds. Navigate mind-blowing landscapes as you travel through interactive snow, jungle, forest, desert and lava-filled underworld biomes, and harvest trees and shrubs, hunt monsters and animals, mine the ground and uncover treasures during your adventures. Create a personalized 2D character with the fun, nostalgic look of 16-bit RPGs with customized gender, hair style and eye, skin, hair and clothing colors. Feel the thrill of dynamic lava flow and weather conditions, including rain and blizzards, and day and night cycles with procedurally-developed gameplay where anything can happen. Erect a variety of structures, from humble dwellings to massive structures and impenetrable fortresses that can protect you from enemies and attract fascinating NPCs. Unleash your creativity as you blend brick, wood, stone and glass materials and craft armor, weapons, robes and more. Feel the thrill of combat as you battle hundreds of foes, magical beasts and lethal bosses. With the Mini Map Companion App for your iOS, Android or Windows phone or tablet, it's easy to check your location and locate important items without leaving the game on your console. Receive environmental feedback from your DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller's Lightbar, and enable auto digging via the touchpad. Keep the fun going with cross-play support for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, and challenge friends in split-screen local mode or online via PSN. A world of imagination and adventure is waiting for you — grab your hammer and pickaxe and get ready to build your own fun.

    My nephews got this for Christmas on their PS3 and asked me to come play. Up until then, I'd seen this game on the shelves, but had no interest in it (I blame the logo - I don't know what it was about it that seemed lackluster). AFTER playing it with them, I was immediately checking where I could get it, which was difficult following Christmas. I was able to secure this copy and have been playing with them online or at their house several times a week since then. A note about online play - PS4 requires use of Playstation Plus, which I had no interest in. I signed up for a 2-week trial while I searched for the PS3 version of the game because PS3 doesn't require any paid service for online play. Either way, though, I was able to play with my nephews as the game supports cross-platform play - you can have a mix of PS4 and PS3 players all on the same online game. When playing by myself, I prefer the PS4 version. When playing with others, I just upload my character and my map to the cloud (a Terraria feature), then download them onto the PS3 (mine for online or others' for local play). I wrap up our games by uploading my character and map back to the cloud so that I can get that progress downloaded onto my PS4. This game is awesome and everything about it makes for really fun multiplayer, whether local (my preference) or online. There's tons to explore and do, along with loads of different tools, tactics, and adventures. I highly, highly recommend this game.

    No depth sacrificed here.

    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. There's no depth sacrificed here.

    This is a really fun game, but you need to be a fan of this genre, or accepting of difficulty if you are to buy this game. In the early stages this game isn't too difficult, but the farther you go, it can get very difficult. At least for me anyway. It has old school style 2D graphics, and basically you use tools and resources to build your home and fend off monsters/enemies. It can be a lot of fun, and immersive, but also time-consuming.

    This is an action-adventure sandbox video game that was originally released for Microsoft Windows in 2011. As this is a Minecraft "type" game you are pretty much unrestricted on what you can do. Most likely if you are purchasing this game you already know what it is or have played it before, but if this is your first time playing, and you like these types of games, you won't be disappointed.

    I would say that this game is good fun. the one drawback is that it seems to small to view what is going on when playing as of the viewing camera is to far zoomed out, maybe there is a way to zoom in on what your guy or gal is doing but I have yet to find out. the game is fun with creating "houses" for others that will show up to live in and they in tern will help you on your quest for greatness.

    The sales person really went out of his way to find this game in the store for us. My grandson had his heart set on this game, but it is a little older and there was only one in the store at the time we were shopping . After some searching our sales person found it. My grandson loved this game, I can highly recommend it.

    This game has provided me and my son many hours of enjoyment since it is at least a two player game, the only downside in my opinion is that it's always split screen. This games allows you to create other elements when they have been combined. As you play you find new character to help you create your world.

    My son bought this game used, and since that time he has played it everyday. It seems similar to Minecraft, but this has more functions. I love how there is a reference to the Cthulu mythos as well. Overall, it is not violently graphic and I think it is a fun game for the kids.
