An opinion from someone who likes Magic the gathering.

Summary: I'll keep this short and simple. Good strategy, but not very much like Magic. The creatures die fast in this game, unless you have plenty of item cards to make them stronger. Or their HP gets low and you have to switch them out for a different creature in your hand, so you can keep the property you upgraded. When the other player lands on that property, they have a choice to fight that creature or just pay you.
Summary: Played the first one for the Playstation, so when this one came out i had to buy it. I dont care how good you get or how many cards you have. The game will match you. If you like a challenge and monopoly..this game is a great addition for your video game collection.
Summary: I had bought my Fiance an xbox 360 for christmas, and after a while I wanted a game of my own since i wasn't into first person shooters like he was. So culdacept Saga is my first xbox 360 game and I wasn't disappointed one bit. It is a very fun game, and I have a good time playing it.
Take one part Monopoly and one part Magic the Gathering and all parts awesome.

Summary: Culdcept Saga is a weird idea but done right. Tons of cards, long Single-player campaign with helpful tutorials to suck you in, and endless amounts of online battles with friends and random people Via Xbox live. Not the game for everyone, but if you like Magic the Gathering, Yugioh, or other card battle games as well as some strategy, you own it to yourself to buy this hidden gem. Worth every penny.
Summary: Just as you have heard its exactly the like card game "magic";Nevertheless its super fun, you may even become addicted. With Video games the word addicted isn't bad, Apparently; It means the game must have something that can draw a person in and keep them interested.The most absorbing ,and intriguing parts for me were finding\locating all the cards,Messing around with my "decks". At first you might be like huh?.
Summary: I found this game fairly easy to master. Once you have a core deck it was easy to change a few cards (if you want) to dominate this game. I didn't collect all the cards and didn't feel like I needed to. Some of the battles take hours, which could be a problem.
Summary: Please, please, please... take this game at face value. It's a board game with a collectible card/deck building element. It does both well, and is fundamentally balanced (see AI gripe below). From this perspective, the game is very good. Boards and matches are rarely the same. Once out of story mode, pick up matches, both real locally and via XBL and AI based via the versus mode are available.
Summary: This is a great game for lovers of CCGs and board games. The so many different strategies are possible that the game has nearly limitless replay possibilities. The graphics, while nice, do not really come close to using the XBOX360's full graphic potential.
