"It's long, it's tough, it's huge fun, and it's cheap." - Eurogamer.net

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.
Lot of referenceshoward195 | Sept. 29, 2015 | See all howard195's reviews »
I really liked the constant references to other games, movies, books, intellectual properties, etc. This game lets you create almost any kind of spell. There are many different effects you can get from your spell. The tricky part was memorizing them and typing them out in the middle of a engagement. Once I found a powerful spell like the thunderbolt, I used it against most enemies. However, that same spell would not work indoors, forcing me to think creatively. The environment plays a big part in your spells, as to increasing its power or turning it back on you. There are lots of secrets to find and achievements to earn. A very good game that doesn't feel like a waste of time.
Friendly fire has never been this funXCOMman | Sept. 4, 2015 | See all XCOMman's reviews »
A fun game to play by yourself, owing to its magic system and humorous setting, and an even better game to play with your friends. In this magic based game you combine raw components to create, without any restriction of mana or similar. It presents the best experience of being a wizard, taming the raw forces of nature, instead of just using preselected skills. The game does offer some special spells, which might require finding a spell book first to learn the correct combination of elements and are activated by a different key, but it really shines in its creation of spells at will. See that goblin with the bombs? Why not hit it with fire? Oh, it's too far away for a fire spray. Add arcana and now you have a fire ray! Fun assured! (Incorrect use of fire ray might cause accidents. Do not use on bombs inside their radius of explosion.) Spells can be launched directly to the target, in the general area around the wizard, or charged into the weapon. And it's always fun to hit your friends "accidentally". "Wow! Did you see my fireball? I got all of them" "Yes, I was there too" "Oh, sorry (I'm not), I didn't see you (I did). I'll cast ressuction ASAP." The game does have some bugs and might be too punishing sometimes, but is a whole load of fun.
Very creative and smooth gameplaySceyef | July 23, 2015 | See all Sceyef's reviews »
Combine elements of your choice to form spells. The great thing about this game is that not only is there a huge variety; there are barely any "useless abilities" that you will never use. All spells have a place, and they aren't only used for one specific puzzle like in some games... but that doesn't mean you can use them interchangeably, because you will not succeed in this game. The graphics style is alright, but I love the characters you play as - fully robed faceless wizards with comical and lovable animations.
Pretty fun even aloneMurderbot735 | July 15, 2015 | See all Murderbot735's reviews »
I didn't have a friend to play it with, but it was fun alone too. Combining magic and using it is really enjoyable. The level design is good with some secrets, and the story is pretty funny. The game isn't that well optimized though - considering that it doesn't look too good - and may not work on your computer if it sucks. I would really recommend getting it on a sale.
Best played with a ControllerCastro0001 | June 10, 2015 | See all Castro0001's reviews »
Magicka it's a solid fun adventure and action game with tons of spell combinations, very fun humour with lots of pop culture references. The keyboard and mouse aren't very fluid to play. It's recommended the use of a controller to fully appreciate it. There a lot of expansions, but the vanilla game sustains it pretty good.
