I've really given this game a try. It's pretty bad. For starters, the in cards are hard to get, you only stick to one archetype deck after the turorial and use it to grind for more booster packs to make more decks through campaign. The game is punishing as the AI's have good synergy decks while you are trying to make do with little you have.

The in game shops are offline, and there are no more new content. The multiplayer probably dead, you cant access it until you complete the first stage of the campaign.

Anyways, if you are looking to play a Magic game. Download Magic Duels for free or buy Magic 2014 instead of this.(Magic 2014 allows you to obtain different archetype decks through buying the dlc or completeing the campaign game modes)

I've not played much of this game, so perhaps it it just my limited experience, but this game seems to slow everything right down for no real reason.

The UI is terrible, it takes ages to actually place a card, if I want to see what either mine or my opponent's cards, I need to click, then zoom in to see it, which fills up most of the screen, then click to zoom out. Instead of having a top down view of the mat, the game has a weird angled view of the gaming board.

When your opponent plays a creature or a spell, it displays the card until you either click on the card, or on continue, then it takes a few seconds for the card to actually be placed on the mat. When you attack, the board opens up, slowing it down further. When you do choose to attack, you either have to hammer the continue key to get them to attack at anything other than a snail's pace.

It seems the game has been slowed down for no real reason. If you look at MTG: 2014, it is quicker, this game is crazily slow compared to Hearthstone.

Well, for starters, its amazing. The cards are unique and there are a sizeable amount of them, and in addition to this some cards have abilities that make them unique to others so that it isnt just a duplicate of another card with a nice picture. (Though the art in this game is fabulous) Anyways, for the rest of this I think i'll adress some grievances in a (hopefully) unbiased manner(look in the helpful comments section to know what im talking about here). Whoever designed the UI should not be shot, its perfectly fine, and death is not required for the designer. Second, online gameplay is not dead, friends can do private matches, and whenever I have searched a match in quickplay, i find it almost instantly. Thirdly, yes, this game is slightly I-Pad oriented in the deckbuilding system, thing is, if you figure out a fast way to move throught it you can make a fresh deck within about 2 minutes. Fourth, then rethink your choices from now on. The game is not broken in any way, unless you ignore the system requirements (in which case you deserve to crash) then there should be not lag or glitches. anyways, im not going to continue with this since most other comments seem to just be repetitions of previously said things and death threats to the developer.

SPOILERS!: This game is abviously better for those who have even the slightest bit of knowledge on MTG. Let's get on with this review.

Now yes, this game is hard at first but when u poured in countless of hours just trying to find a deck that can beat the tutorial deck easily thats where the fun part begins....and by that i mean realizing how this game works in terms of deck colors and what not and how to use the combos in the deck you choose to beat your opponent.

But besides that, this game is also a far greater version of it's predecessor (at least imo). It's very fun, not really noob friendly, makes you rage at RNGesus for giving the opponent a better 1st hand than you. Another thing is, once you get the hang of this game, you can start creating your own deck and improving agaisnt other players WHICH BRINGS ME TO MY NEXT POINT.

Its harder to actually find a pub match rather than just playing the singleplayer.But once you do find a game with someone and get to the point where u have a 14/14 creature with flying and they have to counter to it, you basically achieved that point in the game where you graduate from MTG school and realize that there is so much more in this game than skills, its about knowledge and understanding of what ur deck can do.

TL;DR Just ♥♥♥♥♥♥ buy the game and play it and just get that x5 14/14 creature with flying on ur field TODAY!

I bought this game thinking it was magic online but it isn't. It is a seperate product produced byt the same people. Now this product is perfectly fine when starting out playing magic but quickly becomes dull and doesn't even have access to the bevy of magic cards printed over the games 23 year history. While I did enjoy the game for a short while when I intially purchased it, it now just a relic in my library as I have moved on to playing MTGO.

Your time would be better spent with.. most other magic video games. Ideally, you should play shandalar from 1997.. but you will likely regret playing MTG 2015. On one hand, they address the problem with many other of the modern magic games: you have genuine deck building freedom. You gain cards from playing matches and you can build whatever deck you want. But just like any of the modern MTG games, the devs have said to themselves "We dont want to make this TOO fun.. or people might spend less on physical cards" and so it is full of grinding.. micro-transaction incentives.. opponents with dumb AI and have way way way better cards than you. Worse is the expansion.. which takes the best thing the game had going for it (deck building) and says "only use this deck we made, you cant customize it at all, and all the opponents have cheap overpowered combos." If you complete the expansion you win the reward of being able to play it again with decks you have made.. but after completing it the last thing i want to do is play this game again.
And i almost forgot to add: it has the worst menu layout i have ever seen. If you havnt played this game youre probably thinking to yourself: oh a little thing like a menu layout couldnt be that bad. Its worse than you can imagine.

I've been a Magic player for many years, long before any computer games came out.
Most of them sadly can't keep up with the game and are poorly excecuted. Overly poorly actually.

Negative:
- overly slow, turns take literally forever. You play a land and the automatic unskippable system will still guide you through EVERY damn sup-phase till finally you may end your turn to see the computer play ONE LAND and do the same.
I am not overly pushy in games but HELL I don't have time for that.
Standard games will still take forever thanks to this.
- Animatians are unnecessary - please bring Shanara back, that game was from like 1993 and better than any of the new ones.

- Deck creation is poorly at best and so limited that I barely can take it. This is one of the biggest parts in Magic gameplay. Sadly even the way you can interact will never come to pass because you are in the Twilight Zone waiting for your round to finish because hey...you played a land. Let's see what you can do.

- Weird algorytm with land draw, went through statistics and boy, in 25 years of regular magic play I never had that issue. Increased land cards in decks to ridiculous amounts and still often you end up with three on the starting hand and then 12 rounds go by without ONE other land card....not sure how they actually shuffle the whole thing :D Opponent never has that issue by the way.

Recommendation: Get some friends to play Magic, buy cheap commons in your local comic store and enjoy Magic how it should be: With friends, a good drink, some popcorn and FUN.

The black sheep of all The magics released.

terrible interface since it was designed for IPAD( deck selection requires too much scrolling, in lobby players have to exit to select new dekcs, really bad use of space use in battles everything becoms overcrowded.
immense grind.
No finished decks for casuals.
Severeal mods removed for no reason.
Made players buy cards that could only be unlocked through purchase then later unlocked them for free for other people to balance it out, resulting in people using money for no reason.


only good thing is deckbuilding, can't recommend, wizard coast ♥♥♥♥ed up on this one badly.

This review is most if you're a single player type gamer such as myself.

I have purchased all Magic games for Steam, and always loved it. I know there have been complaints, but I loved the single player campaign and such - just a nice way to pass time and destress. I have bought all and was planning to buy the game every year - but because of this one, I won't. I refuse to give them my money now. I'll explain why.

The core is the same. It's not a AAA game, the animation is so-so, but it's Magic, we all know it and love it. The cards and decks are great.

However - NOT when you have to GRIND for your deck. That's right. Forget the previous games, with this one you have to either buy or grind boosters until you collected enough for a pre-made deck. Insane. It makes the campaign and multiplayer rather boring - because you can't switch decks as easy and change tactics were as appropriate.

It's an insanely greedy, unneccesary step, only to bring in more money because the grinding is painstakingly boring.

There are more complaints such as mediocre storyline, The menu is horrific. Looks pretty, but the usability is horrible, there's just no oversight.

The worst complaint I have is for the expansion where you play as Garruk. Pretty cool - only for the fact if you follow the single player story line you can NOT change decks. You play only with Garruk's deck. And guess what - they made your opponents in a way they COUNTER your deck.

And you cannot change! This is a classic example of extremely poor gamedesign. It has become a game of luck. You have to get JUST the right cards and hope your opponent (AI) doesn't get theirs in order to win. F*ck being clever or involving strategy, them not allowing you to pick your own deck was the worst they could do. In the expansion it's all luck and no skill - which is extremely poor as game mechanic, but even more so in a strategic game as Magic the Gathering.

It's sad. I really had fun for a while with the other parts. Them going for the option to cash in doesn't sit right with me as life long fan. I don't want ingame transactions to make it more fun with Magic. I paid for the game - let me enjoy all of it damn it.

Just play the old games - and ignore this one and future games. I wish I had listened.

A broken, unplayable mess that lacks basic features from previous iterations and will let the AI cheat constantly. It introduces cards that you will never be able to use, its system for balancing is rarity (which is totally apart from anything Wizards of the Coast ever intended) and the interface is clearly designed for tablets instead of actual PCs. A more balanced, more creative improvement from Magic 2014, this game is still lacking the basics of a true MtG experience.

But like monopoly, the fun is in playing with 3 of your friends and getting mad at them for playing like morons. Thumbs up.

There a huge amount of potential here -- but it falls flat in so many ways.

The campaign has some very interesting and challenging battles, and if there were more to that it might be a worthwhile experience.

But a big "sell point" of MTG is playing against other people -- especially friends, which I could not do.
Maybe this will change, but more likely they'll just put out a new version for a new profit grab.

If you're going to spend a bunch of money on MTG, you might as well buy the real cards.

For online, just play a FTP card game -- there's plenty out there.

This game is really only fun with friends. I bought it a couple days after release on my 360, and have had a pretty good time with it. If you don't have anyone to play it with, I wouldn't reccomend it, considering the multiplayer is dead. It also lacks 2 headed giant, probably one of the most popular gamemodes of the older entries, and while it does allow for custom decks, the card pool is fairly small. All in all, you should only get this if you have a group of friends you can sit down and play it with.

Here's the deal: I was actually looking to spend some money in game by buying boosters and such. The game will not allow it. Store is currently offline it says. Obviously the game does not let you spend more money since you've already thrown away some by buying it. And it looks like "currently" means forever, only sounds more mysterious...
