  1. For five dollars and having over thirty levels, you're getting a ton of game for your money. Plus, it's fun to play from start to finish.

    The Magic Obelisk is a truly wonderful puzzle experience that eases players in, challenges veterans further into the game, offers up an intriguing variety of characters throughout and wraps everything together in a gorgeous visually and aurally pleasing package.
  3. The Magic Obelisk has so many things going for it. It has really unique light-based puzzle game play, super cute graphics and characters, and a fantastic price tag. The clunky control does let the game down a bit, but I still think it's certainly worth your time and your $5.

    Zack & Wiki deserved much more success than it got, and it looks like there will never be a sequel to Capcom's underappreciated puzzler -- The Magic Obelisk, though, steps out of that game's shadow and shows that the same kind of thoughtful, character-focused puzzling is still alive and well on Wii.
  5. Nintendo Gamer
    With 30 stages, Magic Obelisk is a great little package. [Mar 2010, p.74]
  6. If you're at all a fan of puzzles or charming tales (or any combination of the two), don't overlook this gem. For the price, there's really no reason to hesitate.
  7. The only major flaw comes in the controls: Lukus tends to wander, or stand still when he shouldn’t, messing up timing in ways that often send him back to square one.
