Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 :: PC Game Review
Are you ready for the ultimate collectible card game? Duels of the Planeswalkers has arrived! Read Kidzworld's review for more details.
Magic the Gathering is one of the first collectible card games and people who liked collectible card games while growing up often will try Magic and enjoy the hobby. Magic is a worldwide phenomenon, with its own pro tour and even a weekly event called Friday Night Magic. However, with so many cards and complicated combinations, getting into Magic can be quite a challenge. Luckily, Duels of the Planeswalkers is here to help you get started!
Dueling for Beginners
Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 is designed to teach people how to play Magic and get them started on the game. In the game, you get a basic deck that is already made for you and you can play against the computer in the campaign to unlock more decksm, as well as new cards that you can use to customize your current deck. There are no boosters to buy and you are limited in what you can do with your deck. If you want the full experience of Magic, including making your own deck from scratch, you can play Magic the Gathering Online or just play the actual game itself!
Instead of worrying about making the strongest deck possible, Duels of the Planeswalkers forces you to improve your skills in piloting a deck against other decks of similar strength. This way, it is playing skills that will dictate who wins the duel.
Revenge and Archenemies
Duels of the Planeswalker 2012 is an updated version of the original game that came out last year. Planeswalkers 2012 comes with additional modes, such as Revenge mode, with harder computer opponents, and Archenemy mode, where you can join forces with your friends to play against a single powerful opponent. Online matches are also possible in one-on-one and two-on-two format.
