"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.
Buggy as hell, but a blast as wellOPGrizzly | Nov. 22, 2014 | See all OPGrizzly's reviews »
If you've got friends with whom you can play this game, then buy it. It's almost as simple as that... ok not quite. The thing is that while Magicka is a great game in concept, the execution (particularly on the technical side of things) is shaky at best.
The combat system is clever and dynamic. The humor is witty at times and simply worth a small chuckle at others. The multiplayer experience is perhaps best described as an accidental fratricide simulator.
Magicka provides a great time with friends, sure to be filled with raucous laughter... and sometimes tears when the technical bugs come to bite.

I am the type of person who hates this kind of game but this, I love to play co-op is a very good game, it does not compare to the free to play magicka wizard wars, this simply is another game, the story is very good and very well set, a game with a simply perfect gameplay, and though it sounds complicated, you end up learning the spells, you learn some who were taught and others discovered while playing. It's a great game, my score is 8/10 just for my taste but if you like this kind of game, please buy it.
An original adventure that will never get oldLastNutria | Oct. 9, 2014 | See all LastNutria's reviews »
I know you have played a lot of RPG, but, have you played a RPG where you can make your own spells? if you like the idea, then you need to get Magicka.
Magicka is an adventure with a lot of humor, action and friendly fire, you dont need to create your own character, you just need to choose your robe and play creating spells with elements like fire, earth, water... etc.
Magicka is a game for everyone, for those who like action, they can buuuuuurn goblins or just throw some heavy stones to the big ogres
For those who like science and psychs, they can wet the enemy and then they can just throw some thunders or can create steam, ice and a lot of more things...
But dont worry, if you dont like to make spells, you can just go with your sword, axe or even your M60 machine gun and kick some asses
But, what about coop? of course this game has coop, you will have more fun killing your friends than killing the enemy (i know it sounds weird but what the hell)
By the way, i think this game will never get old, it have everything you are looking for, bosses, challenges, achievements, action, weapons, spells, even humor and easter eggs!!!
So, if you call yourself a PC gamer, you need to play Magicka!

Sorry for my english, I'm not American, I live in Brazil then gives a discount for me right ^^. Other than that the game is simply sensational

A co-op game, playable solo. Magicka has decent graphics and great spell visuals, with gnome sounding spell-casters. The fight mechanics are clearly created for online co-op play as enemies are stronger and merciless in there attempts to kill you. Fun is had nevertheless. Grab it on sale, but watch out for tons of dlc.
