  1. Magic Ball is a great PSN game, with a bright and vibrant look, an endearing sense of character and some wholly addictive, if rather derivative, gameplay.
  2. If you’re a fan of games like Breakout and Arkanoid, Magic Ball brings a refreshing new approach to that genre that most developers have avoided until this point.
  3. Magic Ball isn’t quite as innovative as other PSN games out there and it certainly won’t test your brain, but it’s a decent downloadable title that may deserve your attention.
  4. With only two themes you'll soon grow tired of blasting knights and pirates, and the two-player modes will only be of interest to a small number of people. Most definitely worth a look, but not quite up there with the best available on the PSN.
  5. A fun, simple and at times compulsive game which is worth a look if you’re a fan of the classic Breakout.
  6. The actual game play is practically bullet proof, as one would expect. It’s the lack of themes or even additional modes that holds back Magic Orbz from being a must have purchase.
  7. All together, I found Magic Ball to be pretty bland, and to top things off the game tells you that it's to be continued, with spots already reserved for additional episodes, obviously meaning that there's some DLC down the road.

    It's a nice looking brick breaking game in 3D graphics. I enjoyed just looking at this game. I liked the fact that there was a 2 player co-op (or competitive) as well. Expand
