Keep your friends closer and your enemies closer .. unless you can blast them away... or push them towards the edge.. or into a fire wall or just let them drown . Magicka is all about having fun and imagination. Use the elements provided and kill your enemies .. and friends Story
Magicka got campaign mode : 12 chapters in which you find items and magicks(special kind of spells) . The story is straightforward - world is in danger and you can save it. NPCs treat you as a fodder and make fun of you until you prove how strong you are with your spells. Also game itself make fun of silent protagonists in general. Devs put a lot of different references in the game so you can go and try to hunt them all . Combat
Combat feels a bit like ARPG , prepare your weapon, point at the enemy and kill it .. but without the enemy droping any valuable loot. And your weapon is mainly your spells... or a melee weapon you pick from a corpse.. or a machine gun. Spells
Spells is pretty much the only reason you would play this game.
You have 2 kinds of spells.
Main one is the combination of 5 elements of your choice and then the secondary is magicks found while playing in which you have to pick set elements to make a different kind of skill that isnt part of the basics.
But lets start with the first one.
You have 10 elements : Water,Fire,Lighting,Earth,Cold,Shield,Arcane,Life,Ice(combination of water + Cold) , Steam ( Fire + Water). You need to have in mind that some elements are opposite to others and they cant coexist in your spell.
Another thing to have in mind: each element got its own form so you have to pick carefuly how to create your spell.
And last but not least you have 2 ways to cast the spell, either on yourself or somewhere on the screen.
Magicks on the other hand got a set elements and form . Some of them affect only specific ... targets like sprint,revive,teleport while others affect the whole screen like Blizzard or Meteor Shower. Now some of the spells are kinda complicated to learn them fast so you might better off writing down somewhere the combination of key presses so you can cast them faster.
Another thing worth noticing is that you can be affected by different elements like you can get wet and when you are wet you cant use lighting and if you try to do so you gonna take dmg. You can be wet, "iced" or set on fire and in order to remove those you need to cast the opposite element on yourself so... have fun ! Co-op
While Solo play is fun, co-op is even better ... because of the moments "Sorry, I didnt mean to blast you THAT far ."
During co-op there is friendly fire... or more like of insta dead in some cases. While in co-op you can cross beams (ghostbusters anybody?) for stronger effect.. unless you are using opposite elements which lead to someone dying.
Teamwork is a must if you want to deal with enemies faster than usual. One thing worth noticing for co-op is that there is no split screen even if you play online Boss Fights
The game over a bunch of boss fights which usually requires you to think about what is the opposite element of the boss itself though often several elements will hurting him, there is one that do more damage than the rest. Also have in mind that part of bosses got 1shot skills so .. be careful !!!
Its quite enjoyable game for what is worth and co-op is one of the funniest I played so far. Though solo play is good I suggest you to go for co-op only.
