Magic: The Gathering -- Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014

IGN
29 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Magic 2014 remains a great, convenient, and affordable way to enjoy this now 20-year old card game. Slivers are a lot of fun to command and sealed decks provide more freedom than ever to build your own army. The only issue is the clunky manner in which it runs. Every small screen change and player move seems to be a monumental effort for the engine. Still, I love the varying challenges this version throws at us and hope to be playing Magic 2015 in a year’s time.
  • Pros: Sealed play deck building, Slivers, Convenient way to enjoy Magic, New card animations
  • Cons: Still doesn't run well

Review: Magic the Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013

25 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Magic: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 is easily Stainless Games ’ best effort at providing an accessible, yet challenging version of Magic to date, and the new decks and improved gameplay are satisfying enough to trump most concerns arising from the new Plane chaser mode. Longtime fans will likely bristle at the continued absence of fully customizable decks, but Duels 2013 includes an impressive array of cards that somewhat makes up for this.

Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013

  • Excerpt: Part of what makes Magic so great is that with all the new cards always being released, you constantly have to shift your strategies and deck compositions. That complexity does make the game rather hard to get into, but fortunately for newcomers, Duels 2013 is a terrific intro to the classic CCG. Short of being taught in-person by an experienced player, Duels ’ in-depth tutorial is one of the best ways to learn the game.
  • Pros: + Great tutorial system and campaign modes., + Planechase and other multiplayer modes are fantastic.
  • Cons: ? How many people will turn to the physical game after getting their first taste from

Magic: the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 Review (XBLA)

Gamers Daily News
20 June 2012
  • Summary: Essentially a $10 replacement for Magic 2012, it won’t win over those who have no interest in the card game or have already had their fill of this formula. Fans who still want more will find plenty to justify their purchase, especially those interested in the ’wild casual’ style of play encouraged in the new Planechase mode.

Magic The Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 Review

PlayDevil
30 August 2011
  • Summary: " Magic the Gathering: Duel of the Planeswalkers 2012 " initially feels like it should have been DLC. True, there are some gameplay enhancements, and quite a few new cards and modes, but the core remains the same. However, I didn’t feel cheated by the price, as there is a great deal of content, and it refreshes the game as a whole. Some of the new modes are also pretty crazy, and really enjoyable.

G4
14 July 2011
  • Summary: Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 is a solid sequel, if not nearly a complete overhaul, to Stainless Games' original trading card game. This updated version provides much needed deck management, adds the popular Archenemy mode, and incorporates Challenges directly into the Campaign. A definite must for fans of Magic: The Gathering, or those curious to jump in.
  • Pros: Updated user interface and presentation, Much better deck management, New Archenemy mode
  • Cons: Still can't build custom decks, AI makes strange decisions at times
