Magicka is an action-adventure game set in a rich fantasy world based on Norse mythology. The player assumes the role of a wizard from a sacred order tasked with the ultimate goal of stopping an evil sorcerer who has thrown the world into turmoil, his evil creations besieging the forces of good.

Players will be able to combine the elements to cast spells, wreaking havoc and devastation on the minions of darkness. They will also be able to team up with friends and fight their way through the campaign, or test their skills in the magickal arts in other challenging modes.

In Magicka, up to four players take on a grand adventure to save their world from certain doom using a fully dynamic spell system. The adventure mode takes the players across three different levels, ranging from the lush forests of mountain valleys to the frozen halls of the Mountain King where wits and creative thinking are keys to victory.

In the unlockable hardcore challenge modes, players fight off waves of enemies to earn their place on local and online leaderboards.

Features

  • Innovative and dynamic spellcasting system with over a million possible combinations
  • Up to four-player co-op in all game modes, as well as a single-player option
  • Fight your way through 13 different levels in the campaign
  • Explore an expansive realm of adventure to defeat the evil wizard
  • Find and unlock challenges, items, and powerful Magicks
  • Experience the parody and satire of a clichéd fantasy world.

Magicka Review

Darkpeing | April 14, 2014 | See all Darkpeing's reviews »

The Good: -Good cooperative play, involving competetiveness and teamwork. -Good variation to magic combinations and ways to attack enemies.

The Bad: -The game presents a lot of technical issues and bugs. -Actual game mechanics are of a steep learning curve, and you can forget how to make combinations of forget you can do something altogether.

Some Enchanted Evening

Autocyclist | March 7, 2014 | See all Autocyclist's reviews »

It's rare to come across a co-op game that involves killing your team just as much as it does killing your enemies. Embracing 8 elements of magic, use your wits and your keyboard to cast powerful spells and brilliant magics. Utilise special combinations of elements to take down your enemies (and your friends). Planning strategies together is just as much of a blast as going against them, in either a campaign of magical destruction, or one of the many challenge rooms available to play. Especially with the amount of DLC available, Magicka is a nearly endless array of fun and hedonism. Truly a clever and hilarious game. Play alone only as a last resort!

A CO-OP Game that destroys friendships

rockoforto | March 6, 2014 | See all rockoforto's reviews »

This game has it all. Jokes, a great combat system, and hard to play coop. The controls are hard to get used to but you'll probably spamming the same spell over and over again. The story is not that great but playing through it is fun. But the real fun is with friends. Playing with friends can either great teamwork or your utter demise. This game makes you feel like both an idiot and a master wizard.

Slapstick Wizards!

AkiMatti | Feb. 10, 2014 | See all AkiMatti's reviews »

This game is a riot! It is amusing just by yourself in single player but it really picks up the pace in multiplayer! Conjuring spells and learning them as you go is part of the fun the other part is just messing around with everything!

There are plenty of funny references to other media in the game story and world. It does get pretty tough, too, so there is enough difficulty to be had with this game.

Enough about the game, just buy it already, or 4! Play with friends or play by yourself, fun is guaranteed!

What we call a troll game

Mandemon | Jan. 30, 2014 | See all Mandemon's reviews »

Magicka is one of those games you want to have friends for. Trust me on this one, I have tried it both single player and multiplayer and it's the multiplayer where the game shines.

Each player takes control of one wizard. Players cast spells by combining 8 different elements together. The results of these elements vary, based on how many elements player uses and in what order.

What makes the multiplayer fun is the total lack of friendly fireproof option. Each and every spell is very likely to end up killing you or your friends. Half of the fun is just seeing what sort of insane combinations you or your friends come up with and how they backfire on you. This is often followed by quick revive spell that allows players to bring dead players back to alive.

Game might not be most beautiful, per technical standpoints, but it does it's work. It's not ugly and the graphics have their charm.

The game is also stock full of humor, Discworld style.

However, be warned ye buyer: The game is buggy. It can crash randomly and me and my friends usually have to fight the game few times before we can get into the game proper.

However, if you are looking for some co-op multiplayer fun, this the game for you.
