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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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Although slightly outdated, Terraria on 3DS is a fairly decent port of a hugely popular title.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lower framerate and lag alone can be reason enough to perhaps skip this version, and the lack of online multiplayer and outdated content could also be a downer for some.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.
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.
That Terraria continues to receive ports to new systems is a testament to the game's playability. It continues to attract new fans while prompting long-time players to double- and even triple-dip. I don't think you need the Switch version if you're already set up on your other gaming system(s) of preference (especially at the current price). If the Switch is your only option, however, it's good enough for us to offer a recommendation. Let's just hope the developers manage to dig up and build couch co-op before night falls again.
Terraria is the same, good old game we all know and love, but the portability of the Nintendo Switch version could make it the definitive one.

I believe 505 Games did an excellent job porting Terraria to the Switch and made the most of the buttons, triggers, and joysticks at their disposal. but after so many hours of playing with mouse and keyboard, it is hard to adjust. Though, being able to play Terraria from the comfort of my bed may be worth the effort.
Terraria is at its best as a single-player experience, and in that regard the Switch version is a great port of that most important part. If you’ve never played the game before- or you have and you’d like it on your Nintendo console- this is definitely worth a look. Just keep in mind that, for now at least, it’s pricier here than you’ll find it on mobile or PC.
The ambitious 2D sandbox Terraria is now on Nintendo Switch, and aside from a complicated control scheme, it feels just like home.
This deceivingly simple-looking 2D platformer is one of the most empowering games I've played.
Although not the best available version of the game, Terraria on 3DS is a great opportunity for on-the-go gamers who thrive in the exploration and freedom of sandbox crafting games.
For a small-looking game with only two dimensions, it sure has a lot of depth
