From the Manufacturer

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 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 environments, 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 challenge mode, players fight off waves of enemies to earn their place on local and online leaderboards.

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

    5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious Co-op fun. January 28, 2011
    By Wayne
    Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard
    This game is worth $9.99. It's sort of like Diablo/Nox/Torchlight, but with a combinatorial magic system.

    I just spent the past five hours playing this game through single-player with my friend and we could not stop laughing at how ridiculous this game is (while having tons of fun!). It does not take itself seriously at all. A hilarious storyline with multiple references to movies, games, and pop culture that grows more and more absurd as the game progresses.

    There's no leveling in the single player mode and no real inventory system. You do get different wands/staffs and swords in the game. They have their own properties that help supplement the magic system mentioned below. If you're playing co-op and you die, you drop all of your equipment. Your friends can revive you with a spell, but they probably won't until they take your nice shiny equipment!

    The magic system is beautifully done. You're given eight selectable elements (fire, water, cold, arcane, earth, lightning, shield, life) that can combine with each other, unless they're opposite of each other -- they cancel each other out. You're able to combine up to six of any element to create a spell (some element combos create new elements!) and they all have various forms. You get a different form from casting it on yourself, your sword, on an area, or just aiming it for a ranged attack. This leads to a lot of different combinations and possibilities with the magic system.

    It also leads to a lot of WHOOPS I JUST KILLED MYSELF BY SUMMONING A FIREY METEOR BUT I JUST WANTED TO HEAL MYSELF moments. This is awesome when it is your friend who does this. It is also awesome to freeze your friend and kill him because he just picked up that wicked staff that deflects ranged attacks.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, and unique magic system January 30, 2011
    Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard
    I picked this up the other day, not really knowing a thing about it except it looked interesting from the screenshots. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was a very fun, and hilarious game.

    The magic system has a unique mapping system where you have 5 slots to put 1 of 8 spell elements into each, and depending on the combination that you use, you get an offensive or defensive spell based on your choices. You can cast this spell either at yourself, at your enemies (as a beam/wall/fireball etc), or as an aoe spell. A lot of the fun in the game is finding combinations that work better for the situation you're in. Sometimes an arcane-lightning-steam bolt will clear a line of enemies charging at you. Other times you need to replace one of the elements with ice/water, or you can turn the spell into an AOE spell to clear everything around you.. etc etc.. There's also the magicka spells, which are combinations that do yet another type of spell when you hit the space bar after queuing up your spell. These are specific combinations that you learn from books lying around in (sometimes) hidden areas, and usually are more powerful than a regular spell.

    The humor is very gamer/movie culture humor and it pulls it off perfectly. I loved the references. Some are more subtle than others, so everyone will find at least some of them. The voice acting brings some of the humor since the text that you are reading is english, but they have this funny gibberish language they are speaking.

    The only downside to this game is the (lack of?) multiplayer.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the $10 April 8, 2011
    Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
    Magicka is a game filled with zany fun and nerdy references. The over-arching type is adventure in the Diablo vein, but instead of being loot/spam focused, it's focused on using certain combinations of elements to create powerful spells. The gameplay takes a bit of getting used to, but once you do it's a uniquely fun and satisfying experience.

    The biggest plus (or minus) is that the game is most fun (read as "only fun") in multiplayer. There's an online game hosting system, but no dedicated servers, so in online play, lag is somewhat of an issue, but that's almost completely negated by how fun it is. Friendly fire is on, so it can lead to hilarious situations where you "accidently" kill your teammates with a giant death spell that wipes out all the enemies along with them. There's no death penalty and revival is easy. Unfortunately this also leads to griefing in online games which is very uncommon but nonetheless annoying.

    The biggest downside is that it released with a large number of bugs and still has a few of them. There are places where the game crashes or takes 10x longer on a loading screen than normal. Add to it sometimes you can get blasted through terrain or get stuck and you have a recipe for frustration. Every update is solving more and more issues, so eventually this won't be a big deal, but whoever tells you they've completely fixed the bugs in this game is lying.

    If you have patience and friends, this is probably the best multiplayer game you'll find in a long time. If you're looking for single player, don't like nerd referential humor, or aren't willing to learn the unique combat system, pass.
