Terraria promises an experience of infinite possibilities. Miraculously, it somehow pulls it off.
Also on the Nintendo 3DS Terraria is an engaging and creative experience which may drain lots of your spare time and then more.

A charming little sandbox adventure that you make yourself.
It offers a huge amount of bosses, items, and collectables, and couch co-op to boot. If you like Minecraft or anything of the sort, Terraria is definitely a game worth a look or two.
Terraria's open-ended open world may provide a fun distraction for the highly-creative, patient, and motivated, but gamers looking for a fun, engrossing escape should keep on digging.
Is Terraria on Switch a must-buy? In its current state, I’d say no, but it’s still worth taking a chance on if it interests you at all.
It doesn't fully live up to its potential due to repetitive gameplay mechanics and to its often maladjusted control system and interface, which together with the lack of a proper plot and tutorials will only contribute to make it less appealing to many players.

As you may have expected, the Wii U version of the game is quite the improvement over the 3DS release, featuring more content, more features and better overall performance. If you have both a 3DS and Wii U and were patient enough to wait and see how this version turned out, then let it be known that this is definately the better release. If you're looking for a compelling sandbox-style game with tons to do and optional online co-op, look no further - you've found it.
Although slightly outdated, Terraria on 3DS is a fairly decent port of a hugely popular title. If you don't own a New 3DS the lower framerate and lag alone can be reason enough to perhaps skip this version, and the lack of online multiplayer and outdated content could also be a downer for some. The Wii U version should get rid of some of these issues, so if you own the home console there's the option to wait a little longer. Some patches may improve this experience, and it's a solid entry for those with a New 3DS that fancy some Terraria on the go.
Terraria is a marvel when it comes to freedom and creativity and it allows pretty much anyone to do what they want with the game in a motivating, captivating way. Thanks to its use of both touch screen and conventional controls, Terraria on the Nintendo Switch is an involving and thoroughly enjoyable experience that any player can quickly adapt to.
