If you go toMagicka's official web site, you'll see that it's listed as an "action-adventure." I don't know if this is clueless marketing, or if it's intentionally misleading to try and sucker in a few extra sales, but Magicka isn't in any way, shape...

Overall, I was not a fan of Magicka, even at its modest price. The game looks and sounds good enough, and it even has some funny scenes (including a vampire who keeps insisting he's not a vampire, and lots of fake-ish Swedish dialogue), but the actual...

Review: Magicka for Windows


At first glance, Magicka really doesn't seem like much. Then again, there is quite a bit that goes into the game that makes it worth playing and a bit that occasionally makes it a chore to play. The story isn't groundbreaking by any means. It's your...

Quirky humor, magic system, beautiful world

Controls can be a problem during high intensity battles, derivative story

At first glance, Magicka seemed to have everything I could want in a game--action-RPG goodness, a novel spellcasting mechanic, and a relentless tongue-in-cheek assault on every part of geek culture. And all of these things were fun, for a while. But...

Some clever ideas wrapped in a lighthearted romp, Magicka partially collapses under its own weight of the innovative but overly-complex magic system.

Magicka is a fun game when it works. Perhaps in a few months when it is patched up sufficiently I might recommend it. As it is, however, what fun and enjoyment there is to be had playing Magicka is lost in a clunky and buggy system that winds up taking...

Humor & fun ; Nice arcade gameplay with mix of spellcasting ; Decent amount of game for the price

Bugs, bugs and more bugs ; Save system at end of levels penalizes players ; Humor falls flat at times

Buy it, it's fun when it works. Maybe you should let it sit for a couple of months while the game is fixed up. The score is for Magicka as it stands now. After a few more patches, tack on a couple more points.

There's a point in the Magicka tutorial where it becomes clear that the tone of the game is wholly irreverent. It comes when you are confronted with a multi-eyed 'Watcher' called Behold at the gate of a dungeon. Shortly after slaughtering this beast,...

A not-quite-there game proves to be pretty fun anyway.

This is the sad paradox of Magicka: what makes it so compelling as a game isn’t the finished product. Want to play online? Finding a game is hard enough without the lag. Want to play single-player? It’s balanced for multiplayer. The spell combinations...

Magicka is a ridiculous, broken game. It's also a blast to play.

Magicka Review


Attack of the spellcasting Jawas

Price; co-op play; spell combos; some of the jokes work; receiving needed support from publisher and developer

Bugs/crashes, save checkpoints; some cheeseball humor

Magicka Review


Despite a lot of bugs and some off-putting quirks, Magicka is still a good action role-playing game.

Unique and addictive magic system ; Funny storyline skewers a lot of pop-culture touchstones ; Cooperative campaign play holds promise

Very buggy and crash-prone ; Auto-saving system can leave you in the lurch ; Visuals so cluttered in large battles that you can lose sight of your health bar

Ah, Magic!

Versatile magic system us tremendous fun. Multiplayer is simply a hoot

While playable, there are still some bugs to squash

Obviously the lack of all these things means that you have an extremely clean interface. The only thing you will ever see on your screen will be a compact legend of spells and corresponding key bindings and, of course, whatever mad chaos you will find...
