I should have seen this coming, given that all of the other games made by the same developer are complete ass, but really, they hyped up this game as some kind of magnum opus or something and it blows.

I'll just go back to waiting for Terraria 2.

It's also early in development and very feature incomplete.

I don't know why they are calling it a beta because it is very much not a beta.

I was going to get it. Then I saw they wanted 12 for a incomplete indie game.

I watched a lot of streams this weekend and I kinda agree with TC. Just looks kinda bland IMO and really just rips Terarria. The soundtrack is great however.

You know, technically Terrarria was "incomplete" too. The main reason it was released when it was was due to a leak.

And it is considered one of the best "creativity toy" games on the PC. And Starbound is being made by much of the same guys and already has superior graphics and is quickly getting critical acclaim.

Takes forever to mine blocks

I spawned in an area with no trees and had to walk like a mile to find a tree, and that's all I found. A tree.

the combat sucks

you have to hold down the mouse button for two seconds to fire a single arrow

shoddy compatibility with the steam overlay

game is full of bugs and crashes a lot

Not sure how much terraria costed back then but right now it costs 6 That's for a fully completed game with loads of extra awesome features added from the 1.1 and 1.2 updates. Vs a game that's still in beta? and costs double the price. Yeah I don't think it's worth the money.
