Summary: As someone who is actually very fond of the previous Microprose PC game version of the original cardgame, (still with me?), mainly because of the depth of strategy involved, with different decks having different tactical strengths and weaknesses, I found this deeply disappointing.
Summary: Before playing this game i was a virgin to the world of Magic The Gathering. I new it was some kind of collectible card game but having never really been interested in that kind of thing i took one look at this game and thought why bother.
Might be good on XBox Live but for those with no friends...

Summary: First off I'd like to point out that I am reviewing this on the basis that I haven't played it on XBox Live, just on single player. That said I do subscribe to the old fashioned view that a game like this should be able to stand up on it's own merits and that online play should be a bonus.
Summary: Magic: the gathering battlegrounds for the Xbox. Where do I start? Well, I'll try my best. Magic: the gathering battlegrounds is nothing like the turn-based game that I expected with a 'Magic the gathering' game.
It's not like the real thing but it's AWESOME!!!!!

Summary: I have to say that I am a great fan of the card game, as I collect Magic the Gathering for 6 long years!! I can say that I was eager to find out what, this new Magic the gathering on xbox game would look like!!
