Magicka With Guns

jazzelmejor | June 9, 2013 | See all jazzelmejor's reviews »

This dlc adds a robe, a new and short campaign and a challenge map. But its not only that. This will show you a different magicka, where you need to cover and use guns, use grenades or barrels to blow things and fight against goblins or trolls with guns, making the game a lot more difficult and fun.

A must buy if you have magicka

Craziest DLC ever

jeliozver | Feb. 25, 2013 | See all jeliozver's reviews »

When I first heard about Magicka: Vietnam, I thought it must be some sick joke. And at some point i was right. Perverted, but it really came out and is very funny in its way. Vietnam is probably the craziest mini addon you'll ever play. Be sure of that. Magicka: Vietnam will throw directly into the jungles of Vietnam in the form of two-level sections in Challenges mode. First will throw in a linear map that have different purposes, such as to evacuate prisoners to dispose of enemy ammunition vietgoblini etc. While all the other level is reduced to one thing - your survival (you stand up to constant waves of attacks).Overall gameplay is unchanged! Perhaps the most significant differences are the new setting and the weapons machine guns, rifles and all sorts of firearms of that time, and the fact that there's barrels and vehicles that can be blown from a distance.The difficulty level is even higher. Now the creatures can launch Magicka bullets from a distance. But is it worth it to give $ 4.50 for a mini expansion which can be completed for no more than an hour? The answer largely depends on whether your friends are on hand with which you can play coop in Vietnam.

A great campaign

DukePaul | Jan. 21, 2013 | See all DukePaul's reviews »

Magicka is a weird and fun game and this expansion proves it, our wizards need to travel to Vietnam at war, when you land here, you will have a camouflage robe, a USA flag staff and the famous M16 rifle, use fireweapons with magic and avoid the napalm attacks!

The campaign is a little short but with this scene and the awesome items you get, it is totally worth it.

A hilarious expansion to an already hilarious game

nairume | Dec. 10, 2012 | See all nairume's reviews »

Magicka: Vietnam is a hilarious expansion to an already great game that will leave you satisfied and laughing as you play through the game. The main meat of the add-on, the Vietnam campaign, is an incredibly well designed challenge map that will put all of the players magic fusion and puzzle solving skills to the test. While the difficulty could be off putting to those looking for a casual romp, it makes it all the more satisfying when you do manage to finish it. Aside from the campaign map, the game also includes a new character customization option of playing a soldier wizard that starts out with a machine gun, which is just a hilarious combination that would almost be worth it on his own. As it stands, Magicka: Vietnam is a must own if you are a fan of Magicka.

A fun DLC

das_regal | Oct. 6, 2012 | See all das_regal's reviews »

Magicka: Vietnam is not only a hilarious choice for a content pack in a fantasy game, but there's also a lot of good content offerings here.

Item-wise, you'll gain access to new weapons, including an assault rifle which is easily my favorite weapon in the game.

You will also get a mission to complete, which is hysterical in its own right and full of the same charm the main game offered in a much more compact form.

I found this easier to play through than Magicka itself was.

A great parody.

zhack075 | Sept. 13, 2012 | See all zhack075's reviews »

This DLC is quite fun.

Fireweapons is a strange addition and are a little beat cheated even though they are really funny to use against goblins.

As usual there are a lot of references to many movies and games and many jokes that will make you laugh. Be warned though this isn't a new campaign, it is a bundle of new weapons, 1 new robe and 2 map : 1 Coop mission and 1 arena both set in the Vietnam Jungle !

A good DLC

CJV | Aug. 18, 2012 | See all CJV's reviews »

This is a very fun and funny DLC, though the missions do not last very long. I do not think this is worth the full price, but for 75% off, sure.

Quite a good DLC, but short

Gh0st233 | June 7, 2012 | See all Gh0st233's reviews »

Magicka: Vietnam is the first story DLC for Magicka. However, the DLC itself is not very long, it can be completed in less than 30 minutes, which is a bit of a downer, since I loved the original Magicka, and was looking forward to playing some new campaigns.

Vietnam brings a lot of firepower, however. Apart from the M60, the heavy machine gun, that is present in the original Magicka, you get a bunch of other guns, grenades, and my personal favourite, the rocket propelled grenade launcher (RPG). There is nothing as fun as destroying everything in your path to success.

Vietnam also gives you a G.I. character with body armor, a combat helmet, and a US flag. The character, by default, has an M16 as a secondary weapon. Another new thing about this DLC is the new magick, which is the Napalm Strike that you can use in Vietnam and the original Magicka.

I'd recommend this DLC, which, even tho it's short, is very fun and brings a nice sum of content for the price.

A must have DLC

liquidsnake78 | Sept. 7, 2011 | See all liquidsnake78's reviews »

Magikca vietnam is the First DLC which has a ton of new content. It introduces the two famous weapons of Vietnam war.... M16A1 and AK47, both are awesomely useful in the game, the dlc also has other weapons like rpg etc. Once this dlc is activated you can choose the GI Wizard robe model while in character selection , looks very cool and carries a Patriot Staff which launches grenades. The two challenges are great and provides great fun time when played online with other people. The new magick Napalm is very cool , which basically calls up a F-4 phantom to attack. The only negative about the dlc is that the price 4.99$ for a content worth a maximum of 1hr is debatable, but the dlc does its job of providing great fun to the base game and is worth purchasing.

good morning vietnam, qfsssa style

soad667 | Sept. 4, 2011 | See all soad667's reviews »

Probably the most wacky dlc for Magicka at this point. And certainly the best by far. Crazy setting, filled with easter eggs, unique campaign with a few missions and not just an arena map (which is included too, as an alternative), many new firearms to keep (bad) company to the m60 of the main game, a new magick and... that's all. If you could buy only one Magicka dlc, make sure this is the one.

Wizards in the Veitnam war, makes sense...

jojot | Sept. 2, 2011 | See all jojot's reviews »

Anyone who played Vanilla Magicka will be familiar with that moment where they first found the M60 and though, "It looks so wrong, but it feels so right" while mowing down packs of goblins. This DLC pack for Magicka looks to capitalize on that feeling by making a whole campaign out of it. It's much shorter than the proper campaign, but it so hilariously incongruous that length is hardly an issue. Put on your wizard robes and hat and cast that napalm strike today!

70

Two fun and amusing missions.

Xonus | Aug. 24, 2011 | See all Xonus's reviews »

I found the part in Magicka where you originally get an M60 highly amusing, considering how out of place it is. And that's basically the whole idea behind this, from the cover (reminding of BC2 Vietnam) to the suit you get, and the missions.

The missions themselves are pretty challenging, and as usual with Magicka, a lot of fun with friends.

75

More challenges

Exige | Aug. 19, 2011 | See all Exige's reviews »

For few euros this will add some new challenges for them who owns Magicka already. It is lot of fun but might get little bit too hard for some players. I liked the settings in the game, Vietnam war with Magicka element worked nicely. You also get a custom for your character for an extra. By the way, you don't need to own the game because you can join your friends game if they own this DLC already, but for few bucks, who would complain?

80

Short and Sweet

kieran88 | Aug. 19, 2011 | See all kieran88's reviews »

This is one of the craziest DLC packs I have ever seen. It expands upon the the chaotic ranged combat in the classic magicka by introducting guns. Again, co-operative play is an option, and more fun than ever. With new weapons, spells, maps and multiplayer, this DLC is definitely worth buying. The M60 alone makes this worth the purchase! (Although it is a little on the short side, but well priced.)

85

Best DLC by far

faraany3k | Aug. 18, 2011 | See all faraany3k's reviews »

This is really the first fully realized DLC for MAGICKA. Instead of adding some robes and PvP maps like previous Dlcs, VIETNAM Dlc is a full blown expansion pack with its unique flavor and content. Primarily mocking VIETNAM DLC that came out a while ago for Bad Company 2 in a funny way. Game offers a complete new campaign with Vietnam era inspired weapons, enemies and napalm strikes. DLC is rich with personality and adds a lot of value to an already brilliant game. Although campaign is a little short but still is fun enough for all Magicka fans to give it a try. I highly recommend it.

86

Really good DLC

pman | Aug. 16, 2011 | See all pman's reviews »

This DLC is excellent, particularly for the asking price. It gives you a real bang for your buck. I would say just the new magic ability is worth the price, as it is probably the most entertaining spell I've come across in Magica. Everything else in the pack is an extra, but good extras at that. the new maps and style are fantastic, perfectly capturing the Vietnam theme. The game continues to be funny and entertaining in this DLC pack, I strongly recommend this DLC for anyone who has played the original magika and enjoyed it.

I love the small of Napalm in Magicka

Bertolli | Aug. 14, 2011 | See all Bertolli's reviews »

Combine the mass destructive powers of 1-4 incompetent wizards and a Goblin army in Vietnam and you get this little tid-bit of Magicka DLC. For the price, get tons of new additions to Magicka albeit short it will still provide the same amount of hilarity you would get from any other challenge mode or map. This is one dlc I suggest you do get for magicka, after all who wouldn't want to be an all powerful wizard spraying a M60 at some evil baddies.

73

Short but fun

Quizn0s | Aug. 14, 2011 | See all Quizn0s's reviews »

Really, how could you go wrong with wizards and Apocalypse Now mixed together? The mission given is pretty short, but still fun. You get to run around, shooting gremlin like things with an M60, throw grenades, call in airstrikes, and of course, cast spells. It's great fun.

80

A little short but fun as hell

metalfreak | Aug. 5, 2011 | See all metalfreak's reviews »

Magicka: Vietnam is one really good but not epic DLC for one of the most fun and innovative games of the year. It still has all the goodness of Magicka and it even manages to add to it. This is first DLC that came out for Magicka and it adds new enemies, weapons, magick, robe and 2 challenges one of which is mini campaign of sorts. This new mini campaign is found with the other challenges and not as an adventure and it confused some users when it first came out so if you buy it go to challenges and pick Vietnam mission to start the new campaign. New weapons and enemies are all Vietnam themed and are parodies Vietnam war movie characters and new robe looks like it came from the Full metal jacket. All in all it's a great addition to the game and only down side is that it's really short and it doesn't add really that much to the game for a DLC which is half price of the full game but nonetheless every Magicka fan will really enjoy it and should get it because its Magicka, it's Vietnam, and it's lots off coop fun.

Amazing content

culefinslamort | Aug. 5, 2011 | See all culefinslamort's reviews »

I decided to buy it a few days ago because a friend of mine recommended me it. And he was totally right!

If you believe that Magicka is a short game, you'll enjoy this DLC! Some more fun hours to add to the campaign with a different environment, based in vietnam's jungle and with a bit more difficult.

Buy it, you won't regret!

80

Not half bad

mashakosha | Aug. 5, 2011 | See all mashakosha's reviews »

I picked this up, honestly, expecting a bigger addition to the game rather than a simple challenge map. However, it's still really fun, especially with friends. And I think that really sums Magicka up as a whole; good on it's own, better with friends! Funny story actually, I heard someone bought this, surprised at the low price, believing it was actually Bad Company 2 Vietnam. The guys at Paradox and Arrowhead know how to do parodies and this is proof of it.

93

Solid campaign style DLC

wengart | July 28, 2011 | See all wengart's reviews »

If you and your friends are looking for something less shallow than the arena games this is the DLC for you. The more solid campaign style of Vietnam will offer you a couple of hours solid fun that's even more challenging the vanilla Magicka with the addition of projectile weapons ranging from AK-47s to RPGs.

Simply epic

Rice77 | July 28, 2011 | See all Rice77's reviews »

This is the best Magicka DLC we have seen, and although it costs a bit more, you get 10 times the fun than with other DLCs, adding a new campaign and challenge maps, with new weapons like the gun AK-47 and new magicks like Mortar Strike, a new robe and a staff, all in the same packet. A must buy for anyone who likes Magicka.

90

A parody of BFBC2:Vietman, but a great one at that!!

Xbomborz | July 28, 2011 | See all Xbomborz's reviews »

Although this DLC pack is meant to poke fun at Battlefield Bad Company 2's DLC pack, it is a great addition to Magicka if you are a die-hard fan. Complete with new "weapons," a great storyline, fun gameplay, and amazing and responsive enemy AI, this package is a great experience for all who like the main Magicka game.

Twisted mix

tangoak | July 25, 2011 | See all tangoak's reviews »

Magicka: Vietnam DLC is a twisted mix of magics and Vietnam. Even more hilarious than original Magicka. Great DLC with new guns and enemies themed in Vietnam. Soundtrack fits also nicely to theme. Includes two challenge maps, new magick and new robe. Magicka: Vietnam DLC is also little more challenging than original Magicka which is a good thing.

90

The Best DLC!

Angelus99 | July 24, 2011 | See all Angelus99's reviews »

LOL this is the best DLC of Magicka. Its a ripoff of Battlefield Bad Company 2, but that its what it makes the dlc so funny. If u have to pick up a DLC, this is the one to get. So Grab it!

Must-Have Magicka DLC

IganX | July 21, 2011 | See all IganX's reviews »

This DLC adds to Magicka a some new challenges which are very enjoyable, some new weapons which are great, and a new robe with a certain "Patriotic taste", and the new magicka animation of napalm is awesome. From the DLC available, this is certainly the best for the humor and content it adds to the game.

90

Excellent

SnivMunchr | July 7, 2011 | See all SnivMunchr's reviews »

This is even more fun than the normal campaign. Add some friends, and this is nearly perfect. If you get and DLC for Magicka, get this. While this won't change your mind about Magicka in general, it's certainly the best that Magicka has to offer.

90

The best of Magicka's DLC

Annoyer13 | June 30, 2011 | See all Annoyer13's reviews »

This is the best of Magicka's DLC because of one reason - it is the longest one. It contains Vietnam rescue mission, which is quite cool and not that easy to win, because if you die one time then you will not be revived (unless you have friend alive). We need more story DLC's for Magicka like that.

78

Only the idea is worth the purchase

JackFive | June 30, 2011 | See all JackFive's reviews »

Magicka Vietnam is a parody of Bad Company 2 (like you see on the cover), but in general, a parody of the film war. This DLC is simply composed by 2 Challenge maps and funny moments who will keep you bonded to the game alone, or with your friends. Definitely a worthed DLC!

91

A good DLC for magicka

ravenholt | June 28, 2011 | See all ravenholt's reviews »

This DLC give you a fresh new theme for your magicka. Set in the vietnamese jungle theme, this game bring a totally new experience for the game. A very worthed DLC, just look carefully at the price okay.

OK...

thomasgjj | June 27, 2011 | See all thomasgjj's reviews »

This DLC was ok but I have to say I was disappointed by it. I loved the game and was expecting a lot from the DLC but it did not live up to my expectations. It was fun for about 30 mins but after that it just seemed as if I was doing the same thing over and over again.

As the original Magicka was only £2.78 and this cost me more then that and I ended up playing it for less then a 20th of time, I was disappointed.

Don't get me wrong, it was good but just not in the same league as the original.

90

Best of magicka

satyakun | June 26, 2011 | See all satyakun's reviews »

This DLC bring you a brand new magicka. New theme, environment, and also new spell! this DLC will make you refreshed and ready to go for another round of magicka. Definitely a worthed DLC!

90

Much more full outing.

emwearz | June 2, 2011 | See all emwearz's reviews »

While the Wizard's Survival Kit DLC was great to have some new items and a spell for your little Wizard, Vietnam takes it a big step further, not only do you get some new Vietnam War inspired outfits, guns and the ability to through grenades you also get a Vietnam Campaign which is a large mission with different objectives.

You rely much more on the large amount of weapons you will pick up off enemy than you will from your Magick, speaking of which there is also a great new spell, Napalm!

While that is all ready worth the small asking price, there is also a survival map, so if your a sucker for punishment, get some mates together.

It does what any good DLC should and breaths some new life into a game.

Magicka Vietnam ups the parody even further!

das_regal | May 27, 2011 | See all das_regal's reviews »

If you've played through vanilla Magicka then you know just how satirical, mocking, and sarcastic that the game is. It's no surprise then, that Paradox chose to make an even more over the top, riotously funny, and lambasting DLC pack.

The absurdity of fighting as a wizard alongside GIs in the jungles of Vietnam is almost too much. The battles are very humorous, the music is good, and the environments feel varied enough from the original game that it is fun to play at first. Unfortunately, there are only a few new spells here that weren't in the original game.

Ultimately my recommendation of whether or not to get Vietnam comes down to how you felt about the base game. If you liked it and wanted more after finishing it, consider getting Vietnam. If you felt burnt out and were just happy to be through when it when you were done, this add on content probably isn't a good buy for you.

95

My favorite DLC

wakenbakejake | May 25, 2011 | See all wakenbakejake's reviews »

I was hoping for good DLC for this game, since the game itself isn't too long. Vietnam is the best they have put out yet (IMO), followed by Marshlands.

With a couple new scenarios, spells and weapons in this DLC. I was kind of worried about whether a "Vietnam" DLC would work in this game, but after playing it my worries were for nothing.

For only $5, this DLC adds some great content to the game, and is certainly worth it.

85

'Nam never was that fun

dottore_46 | April 20, 2011 | See all dottore_46's reviews »

The Vietnam DLC pack for Magicka does not follow the usual path of nowadays DLCs, which include sometimes content of lesser value. The pack includes new scenarios and spells, some of which are really funny, such as the napalm attack. Together with the new spells, there are two maps where you can fight modern enemies equiped with miniguns, grenades, etc... It includes one new mode where you can fight swarms of enemies in order to obtain the best record. As with the original game, it is better and more fun if played coop.

Magicka: Vietnam DLC

xtrench | April 15, 2011 | See all xtrench's reviews »

Usually DLC's are made to get another quick buck for the company bringing additional content, but a rather weak content. This is NOT the case with Magicka Vietnam, with the addition of new "spells" and "weapons" present the true addition is the humor, this DLC will have you laughing from the get go even the cover of the game is funny. Should not be missed!

85

Great expansion DLC for a great Indie game

voltronx | April 13, 2011 | See all voltronx's reviews »

The Magicka: Vietnam expansion DLC takes the original game with it's hilarious pop culture references, crazy storyline, and it's chaotic coop and throws everything into war torn Vietnam.

You get a new Napalm Strike Magicka spell which is fun to use. Two new challenge arenas. Machine guns everywhere!

The new setting keeps the game fresh. The original game was a little short with only 12 chapters. Single player is fun but coop is where this game shines.

The DLC is just as funny as vanilla Magicka and I definitely recommend. Hopefully new DLCs come out and ideally a map editor of some sort.

Yes, the game still has bugs in it but the developers have been good at fixing them.

Napalm in the mornnig?

srukor | April 12, 2011 | See all srukor's reviews »

Magicka Vietnam is an action (role-playing game) with the action set in the jungle among the rice fields of Vietnam. This must be a marvelous experience which you can't miss it! If you like napalm strikes in the morning this is it!:)

As more Magicka: Vietnam, looks like the original, so you if you played Magicka you find yourself very quickly. It is still a dynamic hack 'n slash, but in this time You wille have more contemporary tools of destruction, such as machine guns. It reminds me the times of Cannon Fodder.

Best buy of DLC's of the april! MUST HAVE!

Magicka Vietnam - A great addition

rascallion | April 12, 2011 | See all rascallion's reviews »

Magicka was originally a brilliant game, and this Downloadable Content pack is just as good. From the great napalm strike Magick to the great Vietnam maps, Magicka Vietnam is funny and original to play through. Highly reccomended. Only problem is that the game is still a bit buggy and the multiplayer lags for me. But apart from that, it's great.
