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.

  • Innovative and dynamic spell casting system
  • Up to four-player co-op in all game modes, as well as a single-player option

BOI this is some good ♥♥♥♥ right here, i died more times from my own mis-cast spell than i did from the enemies, 9/11 top notch suicide. Once i got the hang of it i felt like a badass. Get it and don't even worry about collateral damage. Oh and as a tip remember that shield spells reflect your own spells.

Magicka is one of those games that you have to like to be hooked to it. I personally got bored of it after a couple hours, but I wouldn't call it a waste because I had fun. If you like being a wizard and having loads of spells, this is your game.

Really fun! I don't know if it's better with keyboard and mouse or a gamepad. With the keyboard casting and aiming is faster, but I really don't like to move the character with clicks.

Magicka was quite the entertaining game that I didn't expect it to be. I expected a short 5 hourish game that would be fun for like the first 2 hours. I was very wrong. I ended up playing through the whole adventure mode of Magicka with a friend, so in co-op, and it was quite a bit of fun.

To start, Magicka has great graphics and spell effects and animations. Everything about the game looks good. Another thing that makes Magicka so good is that there are so many different orb combinations to make different spells, effects, and Magicka. When I mean there are so many different combinations, I mean that there are legit possibly over 100 differnt unique and tiered spells and Magicka you can cast. Not only that, but each spell combination often features its own unique graphical effect and animation. Couple this with some other weather and terrain, the game has a really a super in depth spell casting system.

Magicka has a pretty random story, but it is pretty funny in places. The gameplay is pretty entertaining and the difficulty level increases perfectly for the most part. Although some times there are some abnormally easy bosses while some of the mob fights were annoyingly hard. Overall, Magicka does a very good job with checkpoints too so you do not feel super punished when you screw around and die. As I mentioned before, I played this game with a friend. I strongly recommend that you play Magicka with a friend or two or three because there are so many little things that make playing with more people more fun. For one, the revive is a clutch coop spell and there are so many more spells that can be comboed.

Overall a good and fun game that you should play with your friends. I really did not find any flaws to this game apart from the occasional crash.

There's wizards and references and swedish chef-speak and such, also.

This game really taught me how being a wizard, is not for me... I am pretty sure I have killed more people than I have saved.

Pros:
-There are no Cons!!!

This game is brilliant on how it handles simplistic ideas and amazing references and creates an incredibly unique and fun game. This game makes you create plans and adapt to what kind aof fighter you want to be, ie what spells your want to use. But the thing is its very hard to do that becasue you want to use them all.

This game is brilliant for how it makes the player think. There are hundreds of combinations of spells and enchantments, it makes you experiment and train yourself for combat with your new discoveries. And after every little skirmish you will fell satisfied, because you taught yourself new techniques that make you stronger in battle.

It also teaches you to be more precise with your inputs as the enemies play more aggressive, which would be bad in other games but not this one, the dragon shout of a right click allows you to blast back any foe that gets to close to a comfortable distance where you can quickly recuperate and put in the inputs you want in order to defeat it.

No matter what, enjoyment will be had. Whether it is from the story humor, the classic video game reference humor, or the satisfaction of walking away from the battlezone as the victor and getting excited for when the next challenge approaches.

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.
