There's fun to be had, but there will be several unintentional obstacles in your way. 3 / 5
For as much time as I'd like to continue to sink into this game, trying to master the controls that seem to be designed to fight you was a lesson in futility which I don't hope to repeat any time soon.
TerraTech is by no means bad, and there's a lot to like and have fun with in it. The car creation aspect is wonderfully creative, and it's a lot of fun building up the car (or weird shambling monstrosity) of your dreams.
I had a lot of fun with TerraTech creating vehicles and putting them to work. What surprised me most though was how I was spreading my time out over all of the different game modes. Typically in games like this one, I will stick to one mode and stay with it. It speaks to the smart game design that I wanted to spend time with all of the modes and made it made me better in the game as I got those experiences. If you like Survival/Building games this one takes a unique spin and is definitely worth checking out and investing some time in.
Overall, TerraTech is a fun sandbox game that will get your creative juices flowing as you build new stuff to take on the game's Campaign Mode before you dive into the multiplayer side of things. With more stuff to come from the development team at a later date, you should get a head-start and play TerraTech today so that you're ready!
