About This Game

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!

FREE UPDATE: Learn to Spell Again... Again!

Ye olde hybrid elements Steam and Ice from Magicka 1 are back, joined by the brand new Poison! This means tons of new spells to cast at friends and foes - complete with larger explosions and greatly improved graphics!

Learn to Spell Again

As an all-powerful Wizard, you will have thousands of spells at your fingertips to experiment and defeat evil with, use them together with special Magicks to annihilate foes or give necessary aid to your companions.
  • Combine up to five elements at a time and work together with—or against—your friends for that full Magicka co-op experience.
  • Four Player Friendly Fire Compatible Co-op
  • Full co-op support! All levels and game modes in Magicka 2 will be supported for four player co-op with hot join, checkpoints, and other supportive features and functionality.
  • Friendly fire is always on, promoting emergent gameplay humor as players accidentally hurt or kill their friends in their attempts to annihilate enemies.

Be the Wizard You Want to Be!

With tons of robes, staffs, and weapons you can play as the robed Wizard of your choice to wreak havoc amongst hordes of fantasy creatures as you see fit. Magicka 2's dynamic spellcasting system can be used in many different ways, offering hours of experimentation for players to figure out which spells belong in their repertoire. Add both co-op and friendly fire on top of that and you have a recipe for hilarious disasters.

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.

Reading all the reviews, I expected the game to be bad, but guess what, it is NOT!

The game is quite different than the first, so if you mastered Magicka one and play 2 you are dead. Spells have been tuned, enemies are quite smart too now. They use spells and shields in a better way now.

pros:

New elements/spells
story is quite good
the jokes are still good
you can kill your friends and even get achievements for it
you will kill yourself in ways never imagined
Robes and swords/staves have impact on your spells

cons:

Sometimes it feels as if some parts are just filled with too many mosters, just to slow you down
Spells like Thunder(bolt?) are terribly unaimed and will kill you or your friends more than your enemies
the cheese slicer doesn't slice cheese(or your friends for that matter)

Fantastic game, definitely worth playing, especially if one is a true fan of previous part. It lacks a bit of content when comparing to the original Magicka game, but is still fun to play, and provides a huge amount of joy. Contrary to the Magicka, one can move the wizard during the spellcasting, which is a great benefit, because the hordes of enemies are unforgiving. For me the biggest downside is fact, that it is rather impossible to solo the game (final boss was beyond my abilities), but still, Magicka 2 shows its best features when playing with friends, happily obliterating enemies (and each other).

Most ♥♥♥♥♥♥ game I have even seen, in magicka 1, you feel like are arch wizard, now you feel like a fool. Now all magicka in games have a 3 second Cooldown, all magica is nerfed. Thunder bolt 5000 damage per time? No, you experience one shoot kill a giant any more. QRQRQRQRD super ice ball with 10000 damage? only in your day dream, it is not a PVP game and those ♥♥♥♥ing guys try to make it balance rather than fun, well, a group of genius, isn't ?.
The endfight is even stupid, asking you to ticking the ball to the edge of the map, however, once the boss touch the ball, you have to try again, the ball usually drop near the boss, so....and also try not to die. really funny, rigth? It is wise to use tens of EUR/Dollars to purchase a game for ticking ball, right?

Wow what an incredible game!
This is exactly what my philosophy of 'complexity through simplicity'. it is such a simple game and a simple concept; but wow complicated and difficult.
The movement of your character is quite difficult.

Very good! I actually like playing this one over the first one. Remember to grab 3 friends to learn to spell with because man oh man. It's pretty extraordinarily fun experimenting with spellcasting! This game has a full campaign with outfit unlocks, weapon unlocks, and trial unlocks. So this game Is anything but lacking content. I personally haven't beaten the campaign yet, just been doing other stuff, but If the first one Is anything to judge by than the campaign will be good. I would suggest that you should get this game If you were a fan of the old one, and even If you are new to the franchise, you can also try the combat out In their Wizard Wars game and see If It's for you!

Get the cloak that makes you heal from arcane, spam arcane aoe and smite youself in the head every now and then with hellish power. Turn your skype volume off so you can't hear your friends screaming at you for killing them constantly. Win the game without any help from your sandbag friends.

My friends are now actual sand bags... but thats ok because I learned how to summon an army of undead who I can heal with rage inducing dubstep and the blood of kittens.

Not as much fun as Magicka 1, but it's still a solid and an enjoyable co-op game.

The new gameplay and controls design is carried from Wizard Wars instead of Magicka 1, so you might feel odd experience at first if you played Magicka 1 too much. While the graphics is much improved and there are more details to the environments.

Much like Magicka 1, if you are willing to play this game with friends, GET IT.

Single Player: 5/10
Multi-player: 9/10

I personally thought it was a really fun game, however, it feels like a really short game. My friends and I finished it in around 5 hours, was fun 5 hours for me, but really quite short for a $15 game.

I really enjoyed Magicka but I was skeptical about Magicka 2 because of the reviews. But I am glad I finally picked it up. It has been fun to play with about 8 hours invested so far in both solo, co-op and network play. There are a few small things that I liked better in the original but there are some new things in magicka 2 that make up for it. One of the best new features is Linux support. If you like one, go ahead and grab this one too.

The graphics are a notable upgrade from the first magicka, and I liked the additions of new elements, and the ability to walk while casting certain spells. If you want, you can join another player online, without knowing them at all, or waiting and hoping a stranger helps you. Other than that, it is essentially the same as the first Magicka, which is also good, because Magicka was an absolutely brilliant game. the only complaint I have about this one is that the story mode is rather short, fairly easy, and other than the final boss, not really anything special. Overall, I would say that this game is a step up from something that was already beautiful. 10/10, would play again

In comparison to it's former, the game is a bit more lackluster than the previous. It's as if they took a table, tore a leg off of it, and covered it in paint. Sure, it looks different. But it's still similar to the original. There needs to be some more content than what there is now. Magicka has tons, and I mean TONS of items without DLC. Magicka 2 has very few in comparison, especially if you include all of their respective DLCs. As of right now, Magicka is much more worth it than this one, especially with the huge discounts. Now, I wouldn't write a review if I didn't play this game more. I have it on my PS4, and even if the controller brings a different experience in terms of control, the general feel is still there. By no means am I saying "Hey, don't get this game because it's terrible." It isn't, it's pretty alright.

Now, to bring up few things that I felt were a bit jarring at first; The adjustments to shield channeling. As well as the poison element. I can get both of them, and they're both great! It's just that I tended to use water arcane attacks while a friend would use cold or lightning-based ones, which would result in a rather horrifying combo.

TL;DR
Just get Magicka 1, until more things are added onto this one.
