This review took time and dedication and has various amounts of reasons and crap, on how Terraria is amazing. If you're looking for something in praticular check the index below but this review dives really deep into how Terraria isn't like Minecraft at all. It is also in beta which means more content will be added in the future.

✧ So Terraria vs. Minecraft. Let me just say first of all Terraria is such a better game. More things to do, items to craft, weapons to kill monsters with, monsters that actually have a purpose (not to mention there are 235 before 1.3), bosses, tools and ores. ✧
✧ Terraria is 2D, Minecraft is 3D ✧
This comes up quite a lot in arguments about which game is better for people. I guess some could say that it matters what dimension the game is in or what not. Yes, Terraria is 2D, no there isn't anything wrong with that. It reminds me of Super Mario Bros. or games from the past or the nintendo entertainment system. Minecraft is in 3D, umm...cool?
I don't really care all you squeakers...
✧ New World ✧
I am excited when I start up a world in Terraria. Wondering if I would get Corruption or Crimson, copper or tin, iron or lead, silver or tungsten, gold or platinum. The combinations vary. Will I spawn by any chests? Will I get a cool place with a ton of tall trees? Will a pinky come by, by chance? If I play Minecraft I always spawn in some boring forest or grassland. There isn't much to do in them, no hidden chests. So basically starting a Minecraft world is pretty boring.
✧ Progression through game ✧
I am in my Terraria world, got some nice armour and weapons. Now I am ready to fight my first boss, the eye of cthulhu! Nice, he's defeated. Next one eater of worlds! Minecraft: Oh, I'm walking around still haven't found a good place to build my house yet. Oh, I found some iron, yipee?
✧ End ✧
Terraria: Yes! I have fought 19 bosses so far! Time for number 20, duke fishron! I got my mythical razorpine, and my legendary terrablade too. Minecraft: I am fighting my first boss, the enderdragon. It is such a coward it flies away from me and attacks rarely.
✧ Weapons ✧
Terraria has wayyyy more weapons in Minecraft, I mean lets be honest here. What does Minecraft have? 5 types of swords and one bow? that is quite embarassing, it really is. I mean Terraria has at least 60+ swords alone not to mention all the other ranged bows, repeaters, and GUNS. Oh, you need mods to get stuff like that in Minecraft. What is a seven attack damage diamond sword going to do to a 100 defense, 500 heart Terraria player?
✧ Mods ✧
Terraria doesn't need mods to be awesome. It just already has enough stuff to be amazing. In Minecraft, you sort of need mods to have a good time. Terraria mods actually add a whole crap ton of stuff to the game while a lot of Minecraft mods like the "lucky block" mod adds stuff that is pointless.
✧ Price ✧
Minecraft is $26.95! How could they charge so much money for such a poorly updated game.
Terraria is $9:99 which always goes on sale for $1:99! Amazing game = amazing prices.
That'll wrap up Minecraft stuff for now, I'll be adding more stuff there in a while.
★ Terraria Building ★
In Terraria there is so many building variations, blocks, walls, furniture, paints it simply blows my mind. Never have I seen a sandbox game with this many ways to build. Make a boreal wood house, or maybe a mythril brick castle. An underground house with lava flow walls or starry night wallpaper. Paint my golden chests blue to make them look awesome. I can build biome boxes, or amazing pixel art. There are bricks that light up, blocks that change colour (rainbow block)
★ Terraria Weapons ★
This is one category where Terraria is huge, the amount of weapons. There are so many wepaons I can farm for, craft, collect, kill with! a dolphin gun, a golem fist, a rainbow rod, a sword that shoots stars, a bow that shoots FIVE ARROWS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE! Guns have many different bullets you could use. Some lock on to enemies, some give you more gold, some poison your enemies. It is virtually insane!!! There is also a ton of armour with unique full set abilities. Full chlorophyte will give me a green gem to shoot at enemies. Meteor Armor will never make my space gun run out of mana!
★ Mobs ★
Another huge thing Terraria is for. Unlike Minercaft that only has like 15 mobs, say hello to Terraria 235! Zombies, swamp things, slimes, mummies, bone serpents, skeleton snipers, rainbow slimes, wraiths, wyvrens. I mean come on what else do you want! Terraria's mobs also have cool drops. Whether it's a banner, an accessory or a weapon. A lot of them are rare, but toally worth it for your time!
★ NPC's ★
Unlike in Minecraft this game doesn't have people that hum, with squidwards nose. Terraria has an actual money system where you can buy items from actual NPC's that you get to move in to your house. Whether you have 50 silver for a merchant, or killed Plantera for a Cyborg, the NPC's are great!
★ Rating ★
This game, hands down deserves a 10/10. If someone were to say otherwise they're a ♥♥♥♥ing idiot. The options are limitless in Terraria!
Thank you for reading this whole review, or even a part of it! This review is in beta which means once in a while I will come back to and add more content. It would be appreciated if you were to thumbs it up, I mean thumbs it up if you think Terraria is better then Minecraft too! Have a great day~
P.S. If you have anything to add or suggestions just tell me, I'll be sure to add them!
