Chris Evans has been playing Terraria, but he just can't get along with it despite its' apparent similarities to the extremely successful Minecraft.
"I realise that I don’t want to invest the time required to get the most out of the game." Well, there's your problem!
Lol. He has a good point. I bought it on a Friday afternoon. By Monday morning STEAM said I had put 31 hours in it already. If you don't have the time then this is not the game for you.
It's a fun and very affordable game with an old-school feel. I find it to be a good reminder that gameplay trumps graphics, as long as the graphics have atmosphere that somehow fits the game. Sure, you won't complete it in 10 hours over a weekend like some of the glitzy overpriced titles out there, but who says you have go all win-win-win-now-now-now on it? Just fire it up for an hour, have some fun, shut it down and come back another day when its rainy and you don't know what to do. It's not like an MMO where you might be hopelessly left behind the power curve if you don't do your dailies and attend a certain number of raids per week. Enjoy the freedom and explore. That's what the game is about.
