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 the challenge mode, players fight off waves of enemies to earn their place on local and online leaderboards.
Requires Steam account for game installation and activation.

- What it does right.
It removes most of the equipment problem many action rpg have that you have to keep constantly upgrading your gear. it is much more simplified and focuses on the fun. The magic system starts a bit hard to learn but once you get the hang of it you dominate your enemies and can get some new weapons as you advance in the game.
In multiplayer the game is really fun and everyone can enjoy the adventure, from novice to experienced players, the game appeals to everyone.
- What it does wrong
While the developers removed many stuff that slows the pace compared to other games, they also removed the sense of exploration. You travel in linear paths with very little variations so you're stuck in completing the level. The more you play the more this feels evident and in single-player you get tired easily.
While many people say that you can play the style you want, it is not entirely correct. The moment you find the weapons and spells you like, you're pretty much stuck with them because they are efficient 98% of the time. Once you reach this point, enemies become mere obstacles that take away the adventure while you go see the stage boss that is actually interesting.
It requires a Steam account. I'm not a fan of Steam, but I'm in the minority.
The reason it didn't get 5 starts is it's a resource hog. My laptop with an i5 2410M, GeForce GT 540M, and 8 GB of RAM has trouble handling it. It became playable when I dropped the resolution to 800x600, but it still has slowdowns during battles. For reference, this laptop handles Starcraft 2 on default settings and Minecraft on the highest settings without any problems.
Most cut scenes do not display and I get a black screen instead.
As for the game itself, which is the only source of my star score, it can be great fun but has a fair share of flaws. If you're interested in trying out novel game mechanics, the combat system can provide fairly constant novelty throughout the game. Try not to let yourself get stuck using just a single tactic or two. Be creative and the combat can end up feeling surprisingly fast and fluid. Teaming up with a partner can definitely increase the potential combat shenanigans. Steam does have a demo for the title, so you can try it for yourself a bit, but I think the demo doesn't quite live up to the full game.
Others can review this game more fully than myself, and have. I suggest you check their reviews out.
