Conclusion: For all its charming visual glory and fast-paced action, Magic Ball also provides repeating level designs and a monotous formula that will test your patience all too often. It’s ironic that a game based around the bouncing of a ball can sling back and forth between excellence and mediocrity so...
Excerpt: The concept is one of the oldest in video gaming: move a paddle to bounce a ball around, a ball that destroys each block it hits. It’s been done many times before, probably most famously by Arkanoid, so when a new implementation of it comes out it must somehow set itself apart.
Magic Ball's short-lived thrills are anything but magical, but they make for a decent distraction.

Summary: Magic Ball adds graphical flair to the conventional gameplay of ball-bouncing arcade classics like Arkanoid and Breakout by transforming those games' multicolored bricks into 3D stone fortresses.
Pros: Smashing ships and toppling towers looks awesome, Plenty of great power-ups, Lots of stages, Easy for anyone play
Cons: Gets old quickly, Too easy to lose sight of your ball, Broken multiplayer, Small stages are often cluttered
Excerpt: Magic Ball reprend le concept intemporel du casse-briques, sans en bouleverser le gameplay mais en l'enrobant dans un habillage alléchant. De quoi séduire aussi bien les vieux briscards nostalgiques du genre que les néophytes.
