    There's the potential for a great competitive puzzler here, but the missing features, along with the iffy odds of actually connecting to an online game without something getting mucked up, make Magical Drop 5 impossible to recommend.

    If nothing else, Magical Drop V succeeds in featuring one of the most busted English translations I've seen in years. It's the closest the game comes to offering some genuinely entertaining '90s nostalgia.

    Magical Drop V had a lot of promise. With a simple mechanic of matching three orbs to clear a board, you wouldn't think the developers could mess that up, somehow, they did. The AI is all over the place, with frustratingly hard difficulties to laughably stupid, easy difficulties. The online play would have been great if it weren't for the bad lag, and the game in and of itself would have been a really fun time if it hadn't been so sluggishly implemented.

    I bought the game on the day one because i'm a fan of Magical Drop 3. i took the time to read all reviews here, and i'm currently thinking that the game is good and very fun. i'm just expecting be able to play online match correctly and it seem many fix and patch are apply by the game developer. I recommand this game to all people who like puzzle games. Full Review »

    Classic game retains most of the gameplay, but gains no ground and is clearly not ready for release.

    Story mode is trivially easy on
    "hard," the new characters are terribly designed and illustrated, the translations are garbage, the story and dialogue are beyond inane, the game is buggy and crashes, and doesn't support most gamepads. There is also typos and missing content. Full Review »

    Terribly buggy on launch, and compared to MD3 half the content is missing (no puzzle, no hermit, no high priestess etc). In short: no configurable controls, painful default layout, atrocious graphics here and there, weird characters in labels, overflowing text problems, stupid AI (even with the hardest mode), long load times, unusably broken online play, just to name a few.
