If you want to learn to play Magic, or just want a little pass-time involving it, grab this. Don't expect the deck building aspect of the game though, as you are pretty much stuck to premades.

Good game, but the intermediate to advanced levels and achievements are quite tough unless you're a regular Magic player. Deckbuilding is kind of a bear (some things are just easier in real life), and I take issue with how the rules for some of the card powers were interpreted. All in all a solid Magic computer game, with a reasonably tough AI for non-veteran players.

If you've not played Magic in over a decade and want to tap some mana, this may just be the game you want to pick up. Here, you get a number of decks to play with, several modes and styles of play including multiplayer.

Things to keep in mind:
You won't find cards from the early era of magic you may recall from ages past. Alpha, beta, The Dark, Arabian Nights? Unlimited, & 3rd edtion? Not here. What you will find are a selection of decks from moderan 2013 era magic. What matters however is that you are given numerous ways to play the game and a number of various decks to mess around with.

You can buy this with a number of unlocks set, or with all cards unlocked. The locked variant might be for you if you enjoy the challenge of unlocking cards and the related achievement pleasure that can be had from unlocking. If you just want to play with cards, as many as you can get your mits on (without grinding) - you may want the 'Complete' edition.

At worst, in this release you can't build decks from an entirely raw ensemble of cards. You can however heavily modify the numerous decks that you are given. Most of these decks have anywhere from 30 to 40 specific deck limited extra cards that can be added or used to replace default deck setups to modify your style of play. Despite these official limitations of the 2013 M:tG game, there is actually something of a modding scene. Google for mods and you may just stumble into what you want if you really want to build decks from scratch / have minor game play bugs fixed.

A very minor user specific issue that can be disabled: Foil cards. IRL they're entertaining and in the game you can have them too. Yet they're animated and constantly glimmer. The constant animation can become a little irritating, turning a novelty special card into a literal headache. Fortunately, - the game has an option to remove the appearance of foil on all foil cards.

So, all in all this is a solidly entertaining version of Magic to mess around with on a computer. Be it offline multiplayer locally, online multiplayer, or in single player vs. AI's of varying difficulties.

Magic 2013 is a card game, in this game you battle an opponent by summoning monsters and playing artifacts and spells to get their life to 0, make them run out of a library (deck) or win by card effect. everytime you win a game you unlock a card for the deck you are using unless you've unlocked all the cards for that deck. you do have to unlock decks by beating certain levels of the campaign.

Pros -
- I found this game to be very addictive, clever and fun.
- you can customize decks with set cards to make your decks unique and to work around your play style whilst stopping decks becoming over powering.
- this game has 3 game modes on multiplayer which are free for all, 2 head giants (2 v 2) and planeschase which is FFA but with a deck in the middle which changes the game by adding new rules, effects, abilities, adding life and even destroying cards.

Cons -
- The AI knows what's in your hand and the order of your deck. i believe this since the goblin deck has a card that has an ability, which reveals the top card of your opponents deck that player can play it if its a land.
- Do not be zoomed in on a card as its leaving the battlefield since this can cause the game to crash and you can have the card stuck on your screen zoomed in making the game unplayable since you can't see what's going on.

This game does require alot of time if you want every card unlocked or if you don't want to spend lots of time unlocking cards you can purchase a deck unlock if you prefer. I chose to unlock the cards through winning games since I don't want to pay for something i can get for free whilst playing a game I enjoy. I would recommend this game since the game is only around £15 if you purchase the DLC which gives you more decks and it's a load of fun, especially the multiplayer.

The game is really poorly balanced compared to previously and it virtually ruins it.

There are a handful of decks that are super strong and the balancing is such that unless your opponent has chosen a certain colored deck they will lose.

Really good, definitely worth the current (10 USD) retail price if you are looking for a "hardcore" competitive cardgame with a ui designed to easily introduce new players to all the potential combos and plays that can be done. Multiplayer is pretty much dead but there are groups for playing this game online.

I never got into the card-battle craze when it was big, so I bought this to check it out. This game did not convey that enjoyment that I saw others get out of playing each other. Maybe that's the point, that play against the computer cannot match playing a friend or even a stranger online, but I never felt like I understood the game well enough to do that. There wasn't the jackpot feeling of collecting cards, so I gave up after a few hours. The game did nothing to keep me.

Игра вобщем-то ничего, фанатм магии будет чем заняться, но Wizards of the Coast хотят слишком много денег за не более чем половину вожможностей оригинальной игры и крайне кривое управление. В версиях 2012, 2014 и 2015 точно такая же ситуация.

Не гневите боженьку, играйте в Hearthstone.

Much better than 2014 and 2015 due to having Planechases. It is much more fun to play than the newer games. The newer ones feel like money-grabs to me.

this game stinks for a lot of reasons....not magic the gathering itself but this particular piece of software. for the following reasons and more:

1. the graphics are abysmal. you cant see most of the cards and sometimes one is indistiguishable from another. very tiresome zooming in and out and it doesnt let you see your opponents cards if he plays several rapid fire....you cannot learn and improve this way.

2. this is probably the worst of it. it forces you to play red. i keep hoping that at some point the nazi software will allow me the rest of the game but so far i went all the way through it and it still forces me to play red...maybe if i play a human opponent or do other things????? who cares? it should either explain clearly why it does this or it should give you the whole game up front.

3. it seems to have some problems calculating damage. couldnt see this until i finished the entire game against the first wave of AI but then it started screwing up. a card that cost 4 mana and was suppose to do 4 damage to a creature and 2 to the player damaged the creature ok but did absolutely no damage to the opponent. and no dont tell me i am a noob because there was not a single card played by the AI. whatever.

how did this piece of garbage get a 77? 2015 cant be as bad.
