Magic: The Gathering: Odyssey :: Trading Card Set Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006

Looking for 350 new ways to whup your buddy's butt at Magic? Power up with your Threshold or nail him a second time with Flashback - these new powers and more are waiting for you in Odyssey.

If you're new to Magic: The Gathering, here's the 411: It's a card game of dueling wizards - you and a friend each play wizards and duel with cards and strategies to see who stomps who. For more info catch the full review here.

Magic's latest expansion (a bunch of new cards) is called Odyssey. It has some cool new tricks, powerful cards and a new story.

The story is about a giant tournament of champions contest a powerful dude is putting together where all the toughest wizards can get together and compete. There's a bunch of loot up for grabs and whoever makes it all the way through the contest, without decorating the arena with his brains, gets to keep the whole haul. It's kinda like Pokemon, but without the cute 'n cuddly bits.

Odyssey

New monsters like Kamahl can really pound the stuffing out of your opponent but my fave card is the Krosan Beast, the biggest, baddest squirrel ever.

One of the coolest things about the Odyssey expansion is the official website. Check it out at MagicOdyssey.com to watch a movie clip and find tournament league info, wallpapers, a screensaver and more stuff than you can shake a giant squirrel at.

Thumbs Up:

  • Cool new abilities.
  • The biggest squirrel ever.
  • Incredible art.
  • Cool video on the website.

Thumbs Down:

  • Weak artifacts.
  • Lame new lands.

I'm not saying the characters they have are bad choices, they just don't have enough characters to choose from considering the Wii U is more powerful then a PS3 and a Xbox 360.

super Smash bros for wii u doesn't have any new characters that makes me want to pay $50 when the magorady of the game is Brawl with upscalled + graphics, touch screen gimics and 30 (something) characters on BOTH the wii u and the 3ds verson. for the 3dS it's alriht, but for the Wii U this isn't lookin to good. The wii u is capable of more then that if it can run assasin's Creed 3. I'm still gettin the ame though.

Well, we both hope that Super Smash Bros for Wii U will really save it. I doubt that, but I hope Nintendo doesn't screw up this version like they did with Mario Kart 8. Mario Kart 8 SUCKS compared to Mario Kart Wii... maybe it was best for you to rent the game, because you would SLIGHTLY be disappointed when you beat the game and play online. By the way, I'm getting the new 3DS LL that's coming out next year.
