A charming little sandbox adventure that you make yourself.
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 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.
Should you buy Terraria on the Switch? Well, that’s a rather nuanced question. On one hand, you have a stable version of an enjoyable, content-rich sandbox classic that can be played both at home and on the go, with that latter option proving to be an intuitive take. On the other hand, the current lack of local co-op is pretty damning for many, especially given that this Switch version is selling for a notably higher price compared to other modern versions.
Although slightly outdated, Terraria on 3DS is a fairly decent port of a hugely popular title.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lower framerate and lag alone can be reason enough to perhaps skip this version, and the lack of online multiplayer and outdated content could also be a downer for some.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.
If you're a PS4 owner and you've never played this game before, it's an easy recommendation as the core game is fun and addictive. If you're someone that has already crafted a Terra Blade, you've probably played this game to death already and it's a bit of a hard sell especially if you've got it on other Sony platforms. Regardless, Terraria is an amazingly addictive and satisfying game with tons of replay value and is well worth every penny.
