Terraria just feels like a jumbled mess of ideas. When they changed the how potions work so that you get potion sickness from using one they kind of removed their usefulnesss. The crimson armor/weapons you can get pretty early on lasts you all the way up to hard mode which bypasses the need for a lot of the earlier armors and takes less time to get. It's really easy to make money without even fighting so you can abuse any kind of magic with mana pots, demolish you're way down really quick with bombs, shoot anything before it touches you with a minishark or even grenade the hell out of anything. It's not as balanced as it seems IMO.
After a few more tweaks (they really need to fix how fall damage works) and some more content, this game will be vastly better than Terraria. There's just way too many things in Terraria that are pretty much set in stone that I don't like.
