    While there have been UI improvements that other reviewers have noted, overall I'm disappointed the latest iteration of this game. Decks lack the flavor of the 2012 edition, and the card unlocks are incredibly tedious. Unlike in the last game where once a card was unlocked you'd have access to copies to statewidstrategize with, in 2013 you have to unlock each and every card individually.While there have been UI improvements that other reviewers have noted, overall I'm disappointed the latest iteration of this game.

This makes sense for the powerful rares but not for the many common and uncommon level cards stuffing these decks. Incredibly frustrating to have to grind to unlock full decks, so that one can be competitive in online matches. Instead of grinding, I've just stopped playing. Expand

    The more complex and complete approach to the card game ever made in consoles or PC. It is fun both for newcomers and seasoned players, and has enough content to keep us engaged for many hours.

    Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 offers a really good entry for players who are new with Magic the Gathering. Even though new players will enjoy this title, the more experienced players will also get a lot of fun out of Magic 2013. Overall It's a very addictive game and offers enough fresh content for the experienced Magic player.

    Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 is exactly what fans of the series will have come to expect: a clean-cut refinement with very few barriers to entry.
