24/7 pure gameplay 10/10

4 versus 4 teamplay
3 amusing mods, incl. 1 most casual - jungle harvest-like about to destroy enemy base then
+ duel
+ custom match

very fresh, very challenging, but also casual feeling, catchy, nice learning curve, skill

... combo-ing spells, elementals, offensives and defensives, sidearm weapons specials, and hilarious special slots magicks

every power has its contra

that all brings many and various funny and cool situations and twists, overall humourous stuff here and there (just read thru your inventory :D )

character levelling and managing, powers, equipment, loot, crafting

not pay to win

CONS - classic ones:
some matchmaking and lags, and players bad habits

Phenomenal replay value and PvP balance. Probably the best game I've ever played, hands down. And I've played a lot of games. Great game, great community. It's just great.

I really like this games. It is short, fast and fun action. It showes a whole new site to the Magicka Universe. This is something the original games were missing. But it is even better now it's a stand alone game.

Pros:
- Fast matches (Not too long like in games as LoL or Dota)
- The Magicka fun of killing
- Good graphics
- Leveling up gives you the possiblity to unlock weapons, robes and spells

Cons:
- Movement as in Magicka 2 (I liked the movement of Magicka 1 better)
- Only 3 elements (It gives less combinations and variations to the skills)
- If you have Bitdefender running as AV it will not always start the game propertly, or you often encounter problems with matchmaking
