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.
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.
