Terraria PS3 Review

Dig, fight, explore, and build! Nothing is impossible in this action-packed adventure game. The world is your canvas and the ground itself is your paint.
You can do many things in Terraria: make weapons, fight off a variety of enemies in numerous biomes, dig deep underground to find accessories, money, gather wood, stone, ores, and other resources to create everything you need to make the world your own and defend it. Build a house, a fort, even a castle, and people will move in to live there. They may even sell you different wares to assist you on your journey.
At first glance, it’s easy to label Terraria as a Minecraft copycat. After all, it was inspired by it, right? Right. Although inspired by Minecraft, Terraria separates itself from it after you get past some of its issues.

I’ll admit, after so much trouble with the tutorial and issues first playing the game, I put the game down and said “Terraria sucks.” After waiting a few hours, I tried the tutorial again and still ran into issues with it. No matter how long I dug into the ground, chopped down trees, and fought monsters, it still stayed on the same thing. I gave up on the tutorial and decided I would teach myself how to play instead.
Terraria is simple enough to play without having to watch tutorials on YouTube. The thing that you can’t learn without a tutorial is advanced crafting. Normal crafting shows you that it will take wood, stone, dirt, water, a work bench, furnace, or something else to craft the item you desire. To do advanced crafting, you will need to find certain items and places to craft more advanced items and materials. There is a little computer generated guy that gives you a few tips, but his tips will not tell you exactly how to craft advanced items.  That is where you may need to do a little searching on the internet.

Other than that, the single player is pretty simple. It all starts off with you creating your character, naming your world, and choosing what size world you want (small, medium, or large). Once you have all that figured out, your character is placed in a random generated world. You have no goals given to you, but when night starts creeping around the corner, you are forced to build shelter from all kinds of evil monsters. You will encounter Zombies, Skeletons, Demon Eyes, World Eaters, the Eye of Cthulu, and even the mighty Skeletron.
Terraria‘s charm lies in that deceptively apparent simplicity – digging, cutting, mining and building work pretty much the same way, by using the correct tool for the right job. For instance, gathering ore is as simple as hitting a rock with your pickaxe and with those rocks, you can build the outside wall for your house, and so on.

The further you get into the game, non playable characters move into your world, as well as new threats. The NPCs are a needy bunch and demand that certain requirements are met before settling in. In the magic vendor’s case, a specific stat to be high enough before he makes his way in, or in the blacksmith’s, the construction and use of a firearm. Basically, the stronger and more developed you get, Terraria manages to throw new things your way for you to play with and strive for.

Terraria is a great single player game, but it truly comes to life in multiplayer mode. You and your friends all spawn into the world and make a mad dash to, once again, gather your resources, make power plays, and quickly develop a region. You can then take on the various evils that inhabit the lands with your friends to gather more loot faster, thus becoming a more accomplished little avatar. You can also flip the format and fight with your friends in death matches to determine who has the better weapons and armor, or you can try and build the most creative traps and constructions.
