About This Game

Magicka is a satirical action-adventure game set in a rich fantasy world based on Norse mythology. The player assumes the role of a wizard from a sacred order tasked with stopping an evil sorcerer who has thrown the world into turmoil, his foul creations besieging the forces of good.
Players will be able to combine the elements to cast spells, wreaking havoc and devastation on the minions of darkness. They will also be able to team up with friends and fight their way through the campaign, or test their skills in the magickal arts through other challenging modes.
In Magicka, up to four players take on a grand adventure to save their world from certain doom using a fully dynamic spell system. The adventure mode takes the players across three different levels, ranging from the lush forests of mountain valleys to the frozen halls of the Mountain King where wits and creative thinking are the keys to victory.
In the unlockable hardcore challenge mode, players fight off waves of enemies to earn their place on local and online leaderboards.

Main Features:

  • Innovative and dynamic spell casting system
  • Up to four-player co-op in all game modes, as well as a single-player option
  • Fight your way through 13 different campaign levels

  • Find and unlock challenges, items, and powerful Magicks
  • Experience the parody and satire of a clichéd fantasy world

A super fun game to play with your friends and not expensive at all. A very long story line and loads of expansions packs too. Definitely a game to play with someone else. Single player is not impossible but it is difficult and challenging.

Loads of fun. This game is packed to the brim with replayability, from the many insane and wacky robes to don to the online Co-op with friends; all it takes is one badly aimed rock to start an all-out war amongst yourselves. There's loads of Great DLC aswell, adding new adventures and items to the table.

The Graphics can sometimes look a bit dated, but that's on rare occasions. the rest of the game has that isometric hack'n'slash feel of games like Diablo or fallout. Plus, you can mix and match your different spell types to create amazing combos, like lightning that burns people, or a flaming ball of death, or even land mines.
I give this game an 8/10, would Wizard again.

If you are willing to play this game with friends, yes by all means, GET IT!!

Seriously one of the best co-op games out there.

Action RPG Adventure, great visuals, Hilarious moments, comedic tone and narrative, sarcastic/parody plot, many boss battles, great level design, challenge mode, arena PVP mode and much more, many hidden secrets, many weapons and spells and more...

And here you can live your Harry Potter dreams with magic spells, you need to memorize them to use them, and you can also make super strong magic attacks with friends too.

Beware, being an a$$ to your friends may result in them leaving you

Single Player: 7/10 (The last levels are Dark Souls-tier difficult, friends are recommended)
Multiplayer: 10/10 (The more the merrier)

This game was and continues to be a very fun game to play, and even more so with friends. While I do not recommend this game for someone who plans on playing it alone, I highly recommend it for anybody who has friends who would also be interested in playing with you.

In this game you play as a wizard and do cool wizard ♥♥♥♥ mein. It's so cash. Kill the bad guys, kill the good guys, kill your friends, kill yourself. Be a knight mage, be a gun mage, be a mage mage. Whatever you want to do with your zappy zappy stick, I am sure that you could. Be prepared to rage quit as the difficulty becames insane and most of the stages will be reduced to a full bar of boulder power and screaming at your screen.

friend gets hit hard but lives, crowd of enemies dies."WHAT THE HELL!.... I lived!"

other friend casts revive, doesn't do anything, super confused.
cast eqrsaa on a friend in a middle of a crowd of enemies in challenge mode.
friend teleports out in time, somehow I walk into it, I get electroexploderfreezerized along with the crowd of enemies, die with the crowd of enemies.
10/10 would lower friend's expectations of me, sacrifice friends to defeat giant crowds of enemies, and fail at wizardry. again.

As soon as game starts, #1 sign of bad port is shown. Mouse moves jerkily. Obvious shoddy console port hastily ported to PC, but when trying to reconfigure controls in options, it always comes up with Xbox 360 controller binding. Avoid this game.
