    Magicka: Wizard Wars definitely struggles a bit with its steep learning curve and some serious bugs that need to be addressed, but the quick, energetic games are largely worth the struggles.

    Magicka is a great MOBA with a complex and amazing combat system.

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

    Magicka Wizard Wars is a free to play title that manages to amuse and entertain. It is not easy to be able to use all the spells right now, and this could be an obstacle for the more casual players, sunken among other things by an unstructured matchmaking.

    This is a good MOBA with several interesting ideas but with a couple of flaws in the gameplay.

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

    I can recommend Wizard Wars to all fans of original Magicka but if you’re looking for a MOBA that puts emphasis on tactics, you have to look elsewhere. [07/2015, p.55]

    Magicka: Wizard Wars is a great platform for PvP wizardry, but it makes for a thin MOBA. It's still enjoyable when you find yourself in a good game, but a shoddy server situation and nonexistent community policing makes those way too rare.

    The idea is sound, but as of today there's only one interesting gameplay mode (and it gets old after a while), a shop that needs rebalancing and a very slow character progression.

    The quick-paced and skill-driven combat system casts a charm on you in the beginning, but the delights wear off over time due to the presence of only a single good mode of play, grinding, and a few irritating bugs.

But after yourMagicka: Wizard War has got a steep learning curve and you'll experience some frustrating moments while learning the game. But after your first 2-3 days you'll be at least average and then it will be tons of fun. It's still hard to master but if you aren't one of these "My KDR is the most important thing in my life!" persons you will be fine. In my opinion the only downside are the server issues; but it's still an alpha so who cares? Full Review »

The learning curve is a little steep, but honestly i assume in the future they will have tutorials to teach you more, considering it is still in alpha and they are more on focus with getting the game done. But yeah after you learn to play, each battle will feel different, get some friends to play. And it will be a good time! Full Review »
