    While it remains the best entry for new gamers into the world of Magic: The Gathering and it finally introduces us to sealed decks and custom builds, the hardcore fans of the series will probably be a little disappointed by the restrictions put on them and on the amount of basic content available.

    So the multiplayer not working for more than 50% of the people on the xbox has been going on for OVER TWO MONTHS. If you own the game, be sureSo the multiplayer not working for more than 50% of the people on the xbox has been going on for OVER TWO MONTHS. If you own the game, be sure to give it a 1 star rating on the marketplace so other people won't buy it. I can't believe the #%$^ers came out with ANOTHER deck to buy before they fixed the problems of their old customers. I am so enraged, will never buy or support a Wizards of the Coast product again. Worst customer service EVER! But there is a slightly visible silver lining, i have been able to play with others with "the glitch" Add me if you have it GT Praisejeebis420 Full Review »

The story mode is a bit corny, but no worse than a game like Puzzle Quest. This game is more about the addictive gameplay. The systems work well and there is a huge variety in the cards available. I am able to challenge myself with the battles and learn some good tricks and play styles with what the game has to offer. Great game to spend a lazy sunday with - time goes by incredibly fast while trying to get a difficult card battle just right. I also like the sealed play feature and enjoy unlocking cards and building a custom deck - it's like having a whole other game bundled with the initial story/campaign mode. Not only can you challenget the game AI to gain more boosters for your custom deck, but you can also challenge other players. While you can't combine sealed play decks with each other, you can unlock multiple deck slots - all which contain different random cards that can be used. This excitement keeps the game feeling fresh even after playing on and off for the past year. Full Review »
