Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 (PC) Review
28 June 2011
Conclusion: For a long time I have been fascinated by Magic: The Gathering, but I couldn’t really get into it, because I have few friends who were already into it, and thus the onus was always on ME to make sure I was doing it right. This game handles all of that for you, and gives you a veritable fortune’s worth of cards to mess around with. As far as I am concerned, this is the way it was meant to be played.
