Magic: The Gathering: Tactics
Another Magic game is making its way to the PS3, this one developed by Sony. It releases on 1/18/11 for the PC, but the PS3 date has not been settled yet. This version uses a 3D-rendered battle mechanic instead of the traditional playing cards, and it supports both single-player scenarios and online head-to-head matches. Will this game fare better than Duels of the Planeswalkers (2009), which received lukewarm critical reviews (Metacritic: 69 critic, 45 user)? The graphical quality of the latest trailer, seen below, does not help to raise my expectations. But then again, I’m not a battle card game aficionado. Are any of you excited about upcoming Tactics? How did you all respond to Duels? I was mainly annoyed that in the latter I was forced to use prefabricated decks. I hope that the new title changes that… and I hope that they release a demo.
