  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.

    Magic Ball is a streamlined, simple game that's fun to play. There aren't many frills, there's no story to speak of, and it's not incredibly long, but if you feel like a good brick-braking game, purchasing this title should be an easy decision.
  4. 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.
  5. Magic Ball is fun enough while it lasts, but it'll only last you a weekend or so at most.

    Above all, Magic Orbz is original, as it has its own design, settings and even power-ups regarding gameplay. It may be a bit difficult at times, but should precisely be a good point. Overall, it deserves 8 points out of 10.

    Magic Ball is actually a lot of fun to play, especially in co-op mode. In fact, it's one of the only games my fiancé and I have Magic Ball is actually a lot of fun to play, especially in co-op mode. In fact, it's one of the only games my fiancé and I have played through together (she doesn't normally play many games). I like that this game uses a physics-based engine to make things more exciting, but at times that does make it very hard to predict where the ball is going to bounce. The 'sets' that you look at are also very cool, but occasionally objects will obstruct your view. That said, we managed to beat every level (and just got the 'witches' themed expansion) without having to retry that many of them. It was well worth getting. Full Review »
