For all mage fansramibiz21 | May 19, 2011 | Review of Magicka
If you always like choosing the mage class in RPGs because of all the cool spells and many different ways of killing your opponents, then Magicka is the game for you. There are a countless number of different spell combinations with half the fun just experimenting to find your favourites and unleashing them in battle.
Graphics are more than serviceable and very charming. The single player campaign is tough, even for veteran gamers, due to the often high number of enemies you encounter at once, and your relatively weak defence (at least in the beginning). However the story is quite entertaining.
Gameplay can be summed up as being original, and sometimes hectic due to the number of keystrokes required to cast a spell, but always a lot of fun. The only minor annoyances I found were the inability to save your progress mid level (since you will always start at the beginning of the saved level if you restart the game) and being pushed off a cliff once too often causing instant death.
I have not tried multi player yet, but I would highly recommend Magicka, even for the single player alone and for the great gameplay and value for money.
