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.
Outrageously fun wizard co-op gamecommanderhavoc | Nov. 15, 2013 | See all commanderhavoc's reviews »
If you're the type of gamer who prefers to play co-op games with friends or family and also enjoy games that absolutely don't take themselves seriously at all, then you will love Magicka. The game makes fun of all the clichés that you find in almost every single fantasy game out there and the characters speak a really REALLY silly version of the swedish language, which will lead to A LOT of laughter. But the most fun part is that you have several magical elements at your disposal that you can combine to create some of the most devastating spells ever unleashed on your foes, and friends as well since friendly fire is ALWAYS ON when you play co-op and that will lead to even more laughter as you accidently send one of your pals flying off a cliff or make him explode with one of the slightly more volatile spells that you can use. Magicka will provide hours upon hours of comedic entertainment when you and your friends play it, so this is a must buy if you're tired of all the more serious games out there and just want something that makes you almost bust your guts from laughing so much.

Fantastic title for friends to share. The game has a single player and multiplayer components although the singleplayer is not something worth considering, it's built from a game where the mechanics, maps and spells are made for multiplayer. The online component feels empty without friends though and it's just mayhem that you'll get bored of pretty quickly. The best part of the game is you and your friends blowing eachother up in various types of ways and laughing about it.
Fun to play with friends, but quite buggy. Not for soloalbery92 | Nov. 14, 2013 | See all albery92's reviews »
Bought this game when it was on sale. It was really fun to play as co-op. Quite unique game among other rpg games. But this game crashes so often and lags with the system with AMD graphics card while it runs smoothly with the system with lower configuration with nvidia. And if you are not good at control, you will keep killing other players by friendly fire instead of killing enemies.
A good "RPG" gameMisterRay97 | Oct. 27, 2013 | See all MisterRay97's reviews »
First of all, I'd like to inform that this isn't a serious RPG game, it's something different (I'd call it a 'casual RPG'). The game is crazy and fun at the same time! You can cast a variety of so called "Magicks" with your wand. There are about 8 Magicks and you can create infinitely as many combination of Magicks as you'd like. It also has co-op mode, where you can invite your friends having Magicka to play with you (pretty helpful, in some levels). The graphics are not bad, they're pretty decent. The gameplay mechanics are fantastic. You can catch the game quickly, even if you haven't played any RPG game earlier. The story is good and the characters are humorous. The game is pretty unique and has loads of potential. So, go get this game and also grab a few copies for your friends! Also check out the DLCs, they're pretty amazing.
Great game, better with friendsasbath | Oct. 4, 2013 | See all asbath's reviews »
At firs this looked like another Torchlight/Diablo/isometric dungeon crawler spin-off, but boy was I wrong. The game on its own is fun and takes a lighthearted approach to the generic isometric RPG genre. Combat style isn't new (requiring you to combine different elements), but it's a nice change to the common slash and hack, and requires you to think on your toes in order to find that weak spot.
But to really enjoy the game, you need to play it with friends. At first you all start off all serious like, wanting to progress in the game. However, every single game with friends will always end up with you trying to kill each other in the most imaginative way possible. And that's the most fun you can have in this creative little spin-off.
