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
  • Explore an expansive realm of adventure to defeat the evil wizard
  • Find and unlock challenges, items, and powerful Magicks
  • Experience the parody and satire of a clichéd fantasy world

Its good, DLC is too high priced but the game is really fun to play.
I wish it had Linux support. Really no reason not to.

Pros:
- One of the most original fighting mechanics ever.
- Ultimately fun

Cons:
- Not very good with an xbox controller. Actually much easier with keyboard (good news for many).
- Story is...barely a story.
- Not much else to this game beyond the fun combat.

Great game... whenever I could play it. However, the game refused to work on my Windows 8.1 laptop. I look forward to the release of the second game and will gladly get it, if it isn't buggy like this version of the game.

This game is amazingly unpolished
Twice now I've died OFFSCREEN, which caused the game to fail to register my death, so I could not reload from a checkpoint but had to actually restard the level. I'll probably try to play more of this, but withing TWO HOURS of playtime I've already encountered 2 instances of a game-breaking bug? That's really terrible.

Insane multiplayer coop mayhem. If you can't laugh about your friend accidentally setting you on fire then this game isn't for you. Friendly fire is on, your spells are dangerous, and you have no idea what you are doing. Good luck.

Do I recommend this game? Yes I do, but I am/was very close not to recommending. The game is extremely enjoyable and fun, especially when playing with friends. However, it extremely unstable and it crashes a lot. The main story will remain stable for the most of it, but the DLCs will be a nightmare.

If you are about to buy this game, get it only if it is on a discount or if you are not an achievement hunter.
