In­no­va­tive, but a bit of a grind

Paisley Daily Express - - Theti Cket - Ter­raTech PC, PS4 ●●●

Throw in some LEGOstyle cre­ativ­ity and the sur­vival de­mands of Minecraft and you’ll get an idea of what Ter­raTech is all about.

Build, bat­tle— then build bet­ter.

The game starts with you crash-land­ing on a bar­ren planet, with only the ba­sic of ma­te­ri­als to start off with.

So, off you must go scav­eng­ing for parts — wheels, body blocks, weapons — from the rov­ing, hos­tile ve­hi­cles you meet, con­struct­ing what­ever ve­hi­cle style works best for you.

Soon, you’ll be min­ing for re­sources and build­ing AI bud­dies to help with the fetch­ing and gath­er­ing.

Sadly, de­spite con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ments since it first launched on PC, the pre­sen­ta­tion re­mains aw­fully dreary, the ac­tion is repet­i­tive, and it takes a tire­some amount of trudge and grind be­fore you ever see Ter­raTech’s ex­cit­ing true po­ten­tial come to life.

In­no­va­tive, but only ded­i­cated grinders will be re­warded.

Build and bat­tle Ter­raTech
