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.
Slapstick Wizards!AkiMatti | Feb. 10, 2014 | See all AkiMatti's reviews »
This game is a riot! It is amusing just by yourself in single player but it really picks up the pace in multiplayer! Conjuring spells and learning them as you go is part of the fun the other part is just messing around with everything!
There are plenty of funny references to other media in the game story and world. It does get pretty tough, too, so there is enough difficulty to be had with this game.
Enough about the game, just buy it already, or 4! Play with friends or play by yourself, fun is guaranteed!
What we call a troll gameMandemon | Jan. 30, 2014 | See all Mandemon's reviews »
Magicka is one of those games you want to have friends for. Trust me on this one, I have tried it both single player and multiplayer and it's the multiplayer where the game shines.
Each player takes control of one wizard. Players cast spells by combining 8 different elements together. The results of these elements vary, based on how many elements player uses and in what order.
What makes the multiplayer fun is the total lack of friendly fireproof option. Each and every spell is very likely to end up killing you or your friends. Half of the fun is just seeing what sort of insane combinations you or your friends come up with and how they backfire on you. This is often followed by quick revive spell that allows players to bring dead players back to alive.
Game might not be most beautiful, per technical standpoints, but it does it's work. It's not ugly and the graphics have their charm.
The game is also stock full of humor, Discworld style.
However, be warned ye buyer: The game is buggy. It can crash randomly and me and my friends usually have to fight the game few times before we can get into the game proper.
However, if you are looking for some co-op multiplayer fun, this the game for you.
Good on your own, even better with friendsGeorgeStorm | Jan. 20, 2014 | See all GeorgeStorm's reviews »
Magicka is an isometric style game where you control a wizard who has control over the elements to destroy those in your way as you set off the save the world (well of course). What makes Magicka special is the ability to combine said elements however you wish, with 8 elements you can easily imagine there are plenty of different spells to keep you entertained.
I played through the main story with my brother and it just got better, with friendly fire always on the fights turned into hilarious situations with poor aim often having disastrous consequences for the other player, and sadly rarely for the enemies!
It's a very funny game as well without various references and jokes about itself as much as anything, there's a ton of DLC as well which as far as I'm aware is jut more of the same, which is no bad thing!
Really fun game!Nexxolae | Jan. 9, 2014 | See all Nexxolae's reviews »
This game is just too funny! The game is in solo-play quite difficult, but if you begin to learn the different kind of spells it will be much better to do. Multiplayer is a lot of fun! You just ravage through the enemies, but there will be a lot of them! The game sometimes has a bit of framerate issues, but it is very do-able even when you have a low FPS for some parts of the game.
Great Magic CO-OP GameUnbenannte | Jan. 9, 2014 | See all Unbenannte's reviews »
The game has a nice concept, and the way you create or cast spells is kind of unique, the game modes actually are very good because you might get bored of one and can pass to the other mode. It has online multiplayer, as well as my favorite future, local co-op up to 4 PLAYERS so yeah its fun. You need gamepads to be able to play 4 player co-op. It does follow a story, but being able to play with family or friends is really worth the $ 9.99. I always try to get games where you can have a nice experience playing local co-op, so I think this is a top notch in that matter and also cheap. So if you come here searching for the multiplayer experience, then this is a MUST BUY. Also it won’t disappoint you in the concept of being a magician and casting unique spells. I give it a 90 because after the tutorial… you lose interaction with the environment, you can’t open doors and stuff like that.
P.S There is cheap DLCs to get more of the game. And Magicka 2 is coming out: Magicka: Wizard Wars, I’ll wait on GMG for it =P.
