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.
- 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.

This is quite a different game as I expected RPG aspects but as soon as I learnt there actually was little RPG elements I picked it up. It is nearly all skill and experience based so having good mechanics really helps. It is very fun as it is quite challenging to pick it up but when you do, you feel very good and can start burning through enemies like most games. The co-op actually didn't work for me despite all the good reviews praising it so I was a little disappointed.

Magicka is a very well realized game. It's got hilarious dialogue, hilarious satire stories, super fun co-op and multiplayer, and a combat system that's pure joy to play with. The only thing holding Magicka back is its bugs and weird control scheme. Magicka has had multiple patches to fix bugs, and its multiplayer is now completely playable. I've experiences four or so crashes in a month, and some multiplayer timeouts, so it's safe to say that Magicka isn't perfectly polished. The control system of combining magical elements is also a bit clunky once you're mixing with eight keys, and it can sometimes be tedious if you're spamming a spell. However, the bugs and control scheme can't take away Magicka's humor and addictive combat. It's a highly encouraged buy.
Fun game despite its bugsVahgrant | May 7, 2013 | See all Vahgrant's reviews »
Magicka is among these kind of games that are really fun to play but still have some flaws that may sometimes ruin your experience. It also is a game focused on cooperation, so if you don't find friends to play with it might not be that good. The game is not that pretty, but it has something special that makes you like it more or less, but this is obviously not the reason why you would buy the game, it's for its gameplay. Magicka's gameplay is based on 8 different magics, such as fire, ice, water, electricity and so on. You can also get different staff and weapons that may change your abilities. You can combine those different magics, up to 5, to use spells or random powers, it sometimes is really dangerous to yourself and your friends who might get killed because of you, so if you are a really mean and cruel person you can enjoy killing your partners right before they get the staff they always dreamed about and steal it just for fun and that's why magicka is awesome, it's because it's hilarious. The story is just an excuse to make tons of jokes that always make you laugh with notably the character Vlad.
So if you're looking for some laugh with your friends get the game, you won't be disappointed otherwise you could try a demo to make your own opinion.
If you love wizards and mages, play this game!Hexxaron | April 17, 2013 | See all Hexxaron's reviews »
I love wizards, I seriously do and Magicka is a dream come true. It gives players the feel of being a truly powerful wizard without any "balance" being thrown it. There's no mana, or energy to limit you spell casting, only you. So cast away! If you love wizards and mages, play this game!
Despite started as an indie game, the graphics is beautiful and the game has a lot of depths. The spell system is complex and you can create hundreds of spells. Enemy variations are also plenty and you won't be spamming one spell all the time as you will need to cast different spells for different enemies.
It is an amazing and funny game especially when played with other people. The funny thing about this game is that your friend will kill you more than the enemies, and that's the fun part of the game! Playing alone is easy, playing with other people that makes it hard, which is also fun.
The game also doesn't take itself seriously, with incomprehensible yet funny speech, shout-outs to popular works like Star Wars and many more. You will laugh or at least smile when playing this game.
However, the game isn't perfect. The launch of the game was riddled with bugs and although many of the bugs have been solved, some still remain. You will crash the game occasionally but it isn't too serious to spoil the game.
The game itself has many updates from the committed devs as there has been many dlcs to keep you coming back for more. When you're done with the adventure mode, get The Other Side of The Coin, The Stars Are Left, Dungeons and Daemons and Vietnam dlc to keep the adventure going.
In a nutshell, buy this game, and make your friends buy it too!
Great co-op game!ultimategamer | March 7, 2013 | See all ultimategamer's reviews »
Magicka is a great multi player game that allows friends to enjoy the adventure in this game together! Use your powers to fight enemies or heal your friends. Together you can complete the story line and help save the kingdom! The best part about it is that there is a lot of downloadable content to try out and add to the game! The more content the better the game play will get as you have more skins, powers and levels. Recommended for anyone who likes top down role playing games and would like to have something great to play with friends (1-4 players).
