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.
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?.
Amazing game if you're the type of person to like it.

Summary: After having played the PS2 version, I was extremely excited when I found out that they were going to make one for the 360. It's basically the same game with some added features, and that's EXACTLY what I would have wanted. Some people may find it slow-paced. Think of this as a board/card game, not a video game. Some people may find the voiceovers/plot horrible. This is not a game you play for the story, but for the pure gameplay alone.
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.
Summary: It's a simple game to learn. The artwork on the cards is great. My wife and I have spent a couple hundred hours playing this game and still enjoy it. The game is a great choice for the 'casual' player. No shooting, no need for fast reflexes, just sit back and have fun with an animated board game. It's different and has many different level/maps. The only real down-side is that the 'action/battle' sequences are pretty mundane.
