"It's long, it's tough, it's huge fun, and it's cheap." - Eurogamer.net
"With a level-headed team of four, Magicka's cooperative action is entrancing chaos. It's rare for a game to feel this mechanically satisfying.." - IGN.com
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.

With few elements you can create many interesting spells - like lasers, or some fire spells to burn up your enemies (and friends). Why friends? For fun. Even if it's a game mostly for cooperation, you can still fight with eachother and check out who is a better wizard. What's a really shame in this game, are DLCs. There are some that contain a few new and interesting levels, but some of them are just useless stuff. Well, you still can enjoy this game by yourself, or with friends, without buying any of DLCs. I think Magicka is worth buying, but if you like to have "complete" games - then you might want to rethink idea of buying this game - with the price of getting full set of DLCs you can get something more interesting.

That's one of the best MOBA's on steam. The multiplayer has one of the best communityes. There are 3 lanes. You have different abilities, such as lighthings, fire balls, stuns and stuff, you can also buy items in the store as u win games or lose, it gives you points and with that points you can afford a weapon,robe and everything you wish. The movement is same like every other MOBA - mouse and tons of keys combinations are included in the spells. You have to capture your enemy's base points and once u capture 3 of them, you win the game. The pressure can be felt when you see them coming for you and 1 second left untill you capture the point. It has good graphics, really good actually, can't complain about them. The only thing i didn't like are the key combinations for the spells. Everything else is well optimized. It will run on very low end pc's so if you are a fan of moba's that's the game for you.

There are multiple things that makes this game a must buy.
First one - the comedy story. The game is so humorous that you will gladly face chapter after chapter even if you have no friends online to share the experience with you. The plot is crazy and leaves you questioning "what's next?" a lot. Couple that with some crazy achievements (such as "This is Sparta!") and suddenly the game is worth playing even if you're alone.
Second one - the unlimited combinations of spells. You're given runes. Runes to determine how strong the spell will be, what it does, how it casts... They won't directly tell you what they do, because you see the runes are simply elements. It's your combinations that will determine the effect.
And the finally - the fun of destroying your friends while playing co-op. Feeling fiendish? Put some fire into that heal spell. I'm sure that your friend won't mind... Oh your friend found that awesome staff! Want to get it for yourself? You know what to do!
Consensus: can be played alone for the humour of the story, but best played with friends because of all of the destruction to each other that you can cause.

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.

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!
