Making Good on the Make-Good

Thank you all for being such awesome fans of Magic and Duels of the Planeswalkers, we really appreciate having you as a players!

You may have seen that we included a special Early Bird Bonus with the new Expansion update for players that previously purchased the Complete Bundle, Card Collection Bundle, or Premium Boosters prior to 11/5/2014. Those players have had the Garruk’s Revenge Campaign unlocked automatically. Unfortunately, our little surprise didn’t quite align with how Steam’s store works.

If you qualify for this bonus and accidentally purchased the Expansion Campaign prior to seeing our in-game message that we automatically added it, we want to make sure you get credited back since we wanted you to have it as a bonus. Please contact Steam Support and they’ll help you with a refund.

Thanks again for your continued support and we hope you enjoy the Garruk’s Revenge Expansion Campaign!

Warm regards,
Your friends at Wizards of the Coast

The worst of the series so far. It does include the build your deck option, but lacks good cards. Another negative effect on me is the golddigging effect. If you want to win you have to pay! The Usability of the menu must have been invented by a 5 year old.
Its so slow and has still a lot of bugs! Unacceptable for the 5th Version of this game. Crucifixion is that the 2HG is gone! The best part of this game. I dont know if ill continue buying this game, it got me very dissapointed.

It was ok, not a greatly put together game and probably barely worth the money, but playable. That was up till the point it wiped all my progress.

Stupid, shoddy game. Don't waste the money

Not sure if DLC will save this title for me, but I'm not one to give much credit for a game you have to pay extra for to make it feel like a viable title. The purchase of extra boosters being tied to multiplayer success is a real sticking point for me.

I've bought just about every one of the previous titles on my Xbox account and played hours upon hours of multiplayer (two-headed giant being my favorite game type.) I finished the campaign on this and tried some multiplayer and out of the games I played I saw one deck that was not completely like the others. I'm surprised to find that I've come to the conclusion that I like the games with premade decks more.

If you enjoyed previous versions of this game, you may very well not enjoy this one. I'm sure many people DO like this, but do some research on the virtues and cons of this game prior to buying.

Ive played every Planeswalker and I play MTGO, this is by far the worst installment. 1st- theres absolutely no ranking or community stats. 2nd- anyone can easily freeze the game anytime they want. 3rd- the game itself crashes between almost every game......and of course the only reason people play Planeswalker instead of just playing MTGO is the twoheaded giant, which they dont offer..... Basically youre better off playing Magic The Gathering Online.

While I recommend it, it is solely on the new custom deck building. Very well done, and makes for vastly more variety in decks. But there is a lot missing in this version of DotP. Either this new deck feature completely overwhelmed the code or Wizards just decided to be ♥♥♥♥♥ and cut two headed giant and still leave out planes chase. Two modes that were very fun in earlier versions.
The interface also leaves something to be desired, I liked the straightforward design of 2014 over 2013's scrolling menus, and sadly they decided to try an even worst for of that.
This year is vastly easier when it comes to unlocking cards (provided you don't just pay, and I highly reccomend that you don't). You now get booster packs with 15 cards, no longer just one card with the corresponding deck you just won with. I still don't have all the cards in 2013 and 2014, but I already have all the cards in this version unlocked.

Having played all the other Planeswalkers games, I'd say that this one has a lot of potential, but falls just a bit short. Fortunately, there's an expansion announced that promises to fix the most glaring issue with the game.

No, there is no 2-Headed Giant. While I do consider it to be a significant loss, it's not a dealbreaker for me.

In my opinion, this is plenty compensated for by the full deckbuilding capability, the large pool of cards, and the rather interesting campaign.
I just bought the basic game, and was plenty satisfied with unlocking all the cards, had fun unlocking the acheivements, and experimenting with various decks.

I'm 100% certain that this game is by far the worst DotP game up to this point.
They removed 2 vs. 2 multiplayer (the most fun part of the game), added an annoying menu, and even managed to reduce deck diversity with such a limited choice of cards.

To anyone reading this: DON'T BUY THIS GAME. GET MAGIC 2014 AND BE DONE WITH IT!

A peculiar and unwelcome step back for the series.
Deck-building is a big plus, but the cards available to players are largely dreadful & also the number you're allowed is hamstrung the higher their rarity.
For some reason quality cards & deck themes are in the game (without restricted quantities), but only for use by NPC's.
Also the interface would surely be bad for tablets, but it's intolerable for PC's - takes endless 'swooshing' to move anywhere, and some designer took sadistic glee in requiring navigation of menu after menu to get anywhere at all.

Huuuuuge dissapointment. I adore magic, I play IRL as well as owning PC 2014 and 2013. I was hoping that 2015 would be more of the same (if it aint broke...) but sadly it's really not. It's trying to emulate IRL magic by allowing you to make your own decks from scratch. That wouldn't be so bad if it was an added extra to the decks you get from the base game.
Unfortunately, at the end of the tutorial boss (which you have to play, there's no choice to skip it) you pick a deck from the list. A list which tells you nothing bar maybe the colour of what you'll be choosing. Aaaaand, that's it. That's the only deck you get.
From that point on, you earn cards through playing the game. Each time you win, you get a booster. But you'll get stuck pretty sharpish as your starter deck won't effective against certain planeswalker decks (Eg; Your deck is black zombie based, and the Planeswalker is white prot. from black), and you won't have enough boosters to make a deck sooo...... Microtransactions.

In the other two PC magic games I own, you can buy extra decks for under £1 and they give you enough flexibility to modify existing decks and do on. In this one, you pay £3.99 for a booster which has all the cards from a certain plane. So.... you get a poor amount of really average cards from which to try and build a deck to use. Inevitably ending in a terrible deck. The whole point of being able to make a deck from scratch is that you can choose what it does (milling deck, white weenie, green monsters, graveyard based....). And you CAN'T do that in this game. You just can't. So you just build sub-par decks from boosters with no ability to try and get specific cards like you can IRL, so the whole thing is rendered entirely pointless.

As another point, the campaign is MUCH shorter than the two previous versions. I guess they thought they'd get away with it considering that the game is almost impossible without spending a fortune in microtransactions? Sure, that really stretches a game out. Making them too skint to play it properly.

Another issue, the menu's are terrible. All very pretty, sure, but a total s**t to navigate. Just quitting the campaign to get back to desktop involves going through 5 different menus. Madness.

Big thumbs down, I'm very disappointed.

Pretty good game. Finally, they have given the option to create your own deck from scratch! However, two-headed giant has been removed, which personally i dont like as i used to play that a lot with my friends. The game is enjoable to play through though you cant really compete online without either completing the story first or using micro-transactions. Would be a lot more fun if micro-transactions didnt seem so necessary and give you an advantage over others though.

If you want the ability to create decks with a decent amount of cards, this game is a good choice. Although Magic 2015 has lost a great deal of fun for multiplayer (taking out 2v2) it is still the best for playing how you like. If your new to the game green and yellow is a good starter deck however, the start is a bit of a challenge on weaker colours.

This is an awesome game to learn how to play magic without spending more than the cost of the game. Very enjoyable as a single-player experience. Once you've gone through the tutorial and the first missions in Innistrad, you'll get very many boosters by Exploring Innistrad, then move on to the other planes!

This is an amazing TCG. If you ever played pokemon, yu-gi-oh, or anything simliar growing up then this is the game for you. More features than those and more skill involved in the effects of the cards. Think of it as the adult version of our childhood card games. Balanced and you do not need the expansion to do well at all, this game is loaded with hours of fun for only ten dollars. The ONLY downside to thsi game is that WotC decided to take out two headed giant (2v2) games which were available in the 2014 version. I do believe that WoTC will update the game sometime soon to include 2HG games. Great customer support as well! 9/10
