Summary: This version of the game single-handedly taught me how to play MTG. I'm a huge fan now. The tutorial portion is very easy to follow and the touch response is right on target. The music isn't too shabby, either.
Summary: Easily the worst balancing ever in any game. The AI cheats like mad to compensate for the fact that it would otherwise be completely inept, even on lowest difficulty. AI always draws the right card at the right time (e.g. playing 3 identical fire spells at the same time? Seriously?
Summary: Riding on the success of DotP 2012's improvements, the 2013 release introduces revamped decks, a new unlock system, and a new game mode. While 2013 has less decks available (16 versus last year's 19), they are overall more accessible for quick play because of the 10 promo unlocks provided...
Summary: This game robbed me of $5 in a Steam sale. There is no deck customization and unless you buy all the packs, multiplayer is a stupid waste of time. Save your cash. I would recommend Ace of Spades and Aliens: Colonial Marines over this heap of crap.
Summary: This game while much more graphically enhanced than Micrprose's game of 1997 but doesn't hold a candle to its grandfather. I could write a novel on all the glitches, problems, rule coding errors but there really is no need as the one major problem it has ruins the game even if it was glitch free.
Summary: Don't waste your money, you will regret your purchase. This game is broken. Summon a creature with Haste, and half the time the game blows right by your combat phase anyhow if you've no other creatures. Want to bump a creature with its ability?
Summary: While there have been UI improvements that other reviewers have noted, overall I'm disappointed the latest iteration of this game. Decks lack the flavor of the 2012 edition, and the card unlocks are incredibly tedious.
Summary: 2013 is a definite improvement over the 2012 version. The decks seem more themed and certainly the synergy between the cards within each deck is greatly improved which I believe makes them more enjoyable to play.
Summary: This is probably the best Magic: The Gathering game I've played. I think I played most of them. I'd dare to say it is the best card fighting video game, even though it does have flaws. I truly don't understand why they do not allow building your own deck.
Summary: Pretty fun and much better than its predecessor. Worth the money and even more fun with a friend. I wish you could customize your decks a bit further but such is life. Great way to learn how to play the card game or perhaps get a bit better at it/understand the rules a bit more.
