Critic Reviews for Magicka: Wizard Wars

A great combat system is restrained by thoughtless multiplayer mode design.

6.4 / 10.0

Spellcasting in Magicka: Wizard Wars is good fun, but it's not a perfect fit with MOBA-style multiplayer.

Magicka: Wizard Wars does a lot of things right, but there is too little under the cowl.

Despite its irksome shortcomings, Magicka: Wizard Wars succeeds in amply entertaining the frugal among us… at least until your next paycheque hits.

Even with its slight setbacks in the areas of community development and inadequate in game tutorials, Magicka: Wizard Wars is an enchanting title. With a small download size and accessible game play I highly recommend that everybody give this title a spin. In a world filled with HoNs, LoLs and DOTAs, Magicka is a refreshing change of pace that might just have you clicking that matchmaking button over and over again.

The game is plenty fun if you have a few minutes to kill, but this isn't going to replace any number of other MOBAs that are already on the market.

For a free game, Magicka: Wizard Wars isn't bad, although it requires a great deal of time to rise to the middle tiers of players, and rising to the top is impossible without a substantial investment of both time and money. There is little reason to play Magicka: Wizard Wars over other games in the genre, and the dominating nature of the in-game store severely hinders the experience, rendering this as being "free" only on a technicality. Whether Arrowhead Games Studios is aware that Wizard Wars isn't really much fun when nothing is bought from the store, is a matter up for debate.

I think that the game does a great job at bringing in action-oriented PvP, so you will surely like this game. It's a nice introduction to the MOBA world if you've never played one, but it also offers enough for hardcore MOBA players too.
