While being early access and the content is fairly minimal, it has made a great first impression and you can definitely see all the potential what it will become in the future.
Players familiar with the original Magicka's combat system will definitely have an easier time getting into Wizard Wars despite how the combat now has been greatly balanced around in order to better suit a fast paced competetive PvP enviroment. The rest who haven't played or heard the original Magicka might have some problems getting used to how the combat works due to the lack of an effective practice system, but you can assume there will most likely be one available in the future.
Currently there is only one map, less than a handful of various items, the level and in-game currency system has no real meaning, matchmaking system and games that can last between 30 seconds to 10 minutes.
Get the early access if you enjoyed the original Magicka, or like a unique fast paced competetive enviroment. If you're not certain, you can always wait for the game to go free to play.
