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 through other challenging modes.

Best bang for you bang. Even better with friends.H3llMafia | Oct. 20, 2013 | See all H3llMafia's reviews »
Magicka is a comical fantasy game. Think of it like a video game version of Airplane! It satires multiple modern games that are out now (for example the DLC Magicka Vietnam is a direct parody of Bad Company 2: Vietnam DLC)
Don't be put off about the comical focus of the game. The gameplay itself is still very enjoyable with its unique spellcasting mechanic that gives the player the ability to literally mix any of the spells you have available with another. The possibilities are endless, though some are more useful and others are just there to harm yourself.
If you're looking to play this game by alone, prepare to experiment with the game's unique spellcasting mechanic. Playthroughing the game alone, is an enjoyable experience all in itself, however bringing in a friend will bring you and your friends tons of laugh..
Very Fun! Grab Some Friends!ecaudill | Sept. 12, 2013 | See all ecaudill's reviews »
I love Magicka. But almost exclusively for the multiplayer experience. As a single player game, I feel it lacks the depth that I enjoy in such games. For example, there is no proper inventory system... a fact that the game itself pokes fun at. No leveling or true character advancement. All things that I would care about if I were playing it alone. However, grab 3 friends and these become moot. You won't care about inventory, leveling, or even the story for that matter. It's just one big fun romp with lots of dying... mostly coming from errant spells from your buddies. And that's where this game shines.
The spell combos are incredibly deep and innovative. You and your friends, trying out new spell combinations, many of which will lead to your (and their) death.
"Need a heal? Woops, I accidentally put water in with that. Watch out for that lightning!" dead
"Are those healing bombs?" gets blown off the screen "I guess not..."
So much fun to be had. Grabs some friends and get playing!

...with a lot of DLC, mainly for costumes (different stats/bonuses). A cutesy co-op game which will surely bring you enjoyment for however long it takes to get buggy. If you can avoid the bugs for co-op, you're in a for a real gameplay treat. The Greenman bundle includes a few campaign DLC as well, so enjoy the vibrant colours of your custom Ice/Shock/Light spell attack all the way in Vietnam. That is a really unique feature: you can 'make' new spell attacks/chain which means no two wizards will practise Magicka the same way.
Fun even if you suck at it!Numbi | Sept. 12, 2013 | See all Numbi's reviews »
My husband bought me this game so that we could play it together and while I had my doubts I found myself enjoying it despite not being that good. The large amounts of spells make this game a blast and I highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a good co-op experience. The game can be tricky at times and it is easy to accidentally kill your partners but I can guarantee you that you will be having too much fun to hold grudges. This is one of those games where it is easy to lose track of time while you are playing.
Ultimate Magicka Bundle at the best pricespycid | Sept. 12, 2013 | See all spycid's reviews »
Paradox Interactive's acclaimed and comical multiplayer wizard computer game Magicka is not just a game, with so many expansions Magicka is an immersive world which you would want to play with your friends in co-op mode repeatedly, no matter how many times you have completed it.
Magicka has almost a unique and creative kind of sorcery. Magicka: Vietnam transports you to a fantasy land from where you would never want to exit from.
This is the best Magicka bundle out there.
