I played both Magicka 1 and Magicka 2, and I'd simply recommend this game better. This is good for players with a good muscle memory. Magicka 2 is more noob friendly, and its watered down a lot. In this game you must know how to spam. Really you can't just spam whatever you must know exactly how to spam or else you'd be healing enemies.
I like combining Steam and Lightning or Ice and Lightning in this game. You cannot do that in Magicka 2.
This game requires a good strategy after a certain chapter! You can't just go and spam spells anymore. Some enemies appear having a weakness agains one or two elements and you really need to use it. In magicka 2 you just use Death + Fire aoe to win. No brainer.
Humour is great, you're op, you can die of your op-ness, story is better than in M2 etc.
The only cons I FIND annoying are
-Multiplayer laggy as hell in versus(or in general)
-Spell icon appearing/conjuring feels a bit unintuitive, but this is fixed if you know what you cast actually.
-Graphics feel a bit outdated ( But really who the hell cares?)
-It feels better done than magicka 2..
