"Magicka 2 offers a smoother, more comfortable experience than its predecessor, but that doesn’t mean the series has lost its signature charm." - GameWatcher
The world’s most irreverent co-op action adventure returns! In the next chapter of Magicka, players ascend from the ruins of Aldrheim to experience a Midgård almost wiped free of Wizards after the Wizard Wars, with the few that do remain having either gone mad or extremely hostile toward all others.
To rid the world of evil, again, up to four Wizards, and their guide Vlad, will traverse Midgård armed with the next iteration of the famous Magicka dynamic spellcasting system, as players reprise their roles as the most overpowered, unpredictably funny Wizards ever known to fantasy!

Replay the Next Chapter with Artifacts
Magicka 2 offers players a story-driven campaign mode set in a lush fantasy world influenced heavily by Nordic folklore. New to the franchise are "Artifacts," which act as different switches and options for players to customize and change the gameplay experience, adding more replayability when utilized.
I got magicka on sale a few months ago, and I don't regret the purchase at all. In fact, I'd even buy it for the $15 without a second thought. I love the gameplay and the mods are always trying their best to keep the game going with some new features.
Magicka 2 is a streamlined and improved version of the original. Well sure it's another adventure with its own story and all, but this sequel doesn't add much to the original formula. This new episode looks as good as its predecessor and the humor is still great. Gameplay-wise, the famous spell system from Magicka is back and is as fun to use as before. It's really well made and fun though, but still... It's not a must have if you already Magicka.
It's a continuation of the last game. That is not a bad thing but it does not offer up more which is disappointed. If you liked the first game, you'll enjoy this one. Just do not expect anything groundbreaking new to be introduced.
I absolutely LOVED this first game in the series, but with Magicka 2, it feels as though they kept everything that people loved about the first title, and then given us more options, more things to do, and in general just a better game. The game DOES have crashes, which can get rather annoying, but they are probably working on fixing this glitch. The game PLAYS great, and the game LOOKS great, which is a score on my behalf, but at times, the game can feel just a tad too much like the original in some areas. The two games are very diverse, but at the same time very similar, it's strange, but still a lot of fun!
Don't get me wrong, Magicka 2 is fun, but it is still basically the same. the controls are a little more streamlined, but otherwise it's nearly identical. It plays largely the same, a lot of the quests are similar, as are the monsters and environments. Basically, if you want more Magicka, you got it. if you want a richer experience, go somewhere else.
