Anyone getting Terraria (2D Minecraft) Xbox360 Edition?

Just got it today for 1200 MSP and its like a 2D version of Minecraft in a lot of ways to me. Its different too. Anyone else going to check this game out?

I'm kind of skeptical on how the controls will transfer over to console. Loved it on the PC though, it's more combat oriented.

Yeah, it is more combat oriented. The controls feel fine once I knew what I was doing. At first I was trying to build as is and it was weird and hard, then I found out you click in the right stick and switch to a "mouse mode" for building and then it was super easy, then switch back for fighting. lol

You can always try out the free demo to see how you like the feel of it.

Finished BioShock within 2 days? Damn, I wouldn't want a game to be over that quick.

Ad for Terraria, never saw the appeal.

Controls were meh. Demo really didn't explain much. Hard to tell sometimes why rooms are/aren't valid even with the check.

I might pick it up at 200-400 MSP but not 1200.

Played Terraria on the PC a while ago and fell in love with it. Once I get enough Microsoft points I plan on getting it.

I saw it advertised on Xboxlive but not so sure if I want to play it or not. To those that have played it, do you think it is worth getting?

Yeah I thought 1200 points sounded steep. I might get it if it goes on sale

I bought it on the release day and I find it pretty fun, I got used to the controls fairly fast. Unlike Minecraft though when you finish all the achievements you have pretty much done everything you could do in the game, beat all bosses and collect every pet/armor.


I find it worth getting.

My son is hooked on Terraria but no matter how much I watch/ask questions or try it I just don't see the appeal.

the appeal of terraria is more like that of a "normal" game than minecraft.

While terraria is often seen as a "2D minecraft" it isnt and doesnt appeal to the same exact people because while they both employ mining and crafting mechanics in a blocky world and are similar in style they use the mechanics very differently.

in minecraft the game is very much secondary to the creative aspect of it, very few people bother even playing the game througg more than once, most that you do is play survival so you have to mine and craft t do your building. Minecraft is almost entirely a creative platform with a game thrown into it.

terraria on the other hand isnt that creative but is very much a platformer, a pretty damn good one to, you progress through levels, fight bosses and work towards a proper defined ending goal that you want to reach, the mining and crafting serve as a progressions system more than a creative tool, building is the only real creative part to it and even that you are thinking practically at all times to house NPCs.

But that is its appeal, I play terraria because i want to finish terraria unlike minecraft which im currently playing because i want to build a pretty farm
