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.

Magicka bought me with its unique spellcasting. Story is ok, nothing much, but! The way it is presented, as a comedy, with characters speaking a mixture of Swedish and English. With some gibberish. And Vlad who is NOT a vampire. There are also many references to popculture, for example my review title? For those who don't know - it's from Highlander. In Magicka you can meet Conner MacLeod, decapitate him, and get his sword. Oh, and Magicka is probably experienced best in coop. Haven't played it with anyone, even though I own the game for almost 2 years now.

While the game can be fairly entertaining on it's own, the hilarity really shines when you bring a friend along. Whether accidentally crossing spell streams, or just straight up obliterating each other with lightning, the fun never ends. The magic system can be a bit to get used to, and some of the spells are rather complex, but it can be picked up pretty quickly.
Fun, but awkwardsycomantis1991 | May 18, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »
This is a really fun game, especially with friends. It's a more light-hearted Diablo-style game. Very creative characters and enemies, a great magic system, and a bunch of awesome DLC that goes on sale rather often. The think keeping it from greatness are the awkward controls. You get used enough to it for it to not be a hindrance, but it never feels overly smooth and I hope the sequel fixes this. If it's a more refined version ofthe first game plus more fluid controls, then I'll consider it the classic that many already see it as.

Magicka – an Action RPG game. You are a sorcerer who is traveling through 13 levels of the game. Of course you use magic to clear the levels from hoards of enemies. Magic variety is huge. The game even has spell combination features so you can create even more spell combos of your liking. You aren’t limited to the use of spells, you can use .other weapons too. All level can be played co-op with up to 4 players. The game is a lot of fun, has decent graphics and is even humorous some times (The machine gun) even though it is a bit buggy.

Magicka is an Action RPG full of fun and humor. You play as a sorcerer travelling through each of the 13 levels. There are tons of enemies to kill and the tool of the trade are very fun to use. For as a sorcerer you have the ability to use a large variety of spells. You can use each spell or combine them for different effects. Most of the fun comes from the search of powerful combination. And that system is very clever. But if you don’t like magic you can still use weapons... Even a machine gun! (Full of humor, I said!) The game looks decent and you can even play it in multiplayer. But watch out! There is friendly fire!
