The Escapist (Jun 28, 2013)
Duels 2014 has everything you've ever wanted from a Duels game. The Sealed Play option takes this version to a whole new level, and will make it exceedingly difficult for Stainless to one-up itself again.

Anche quest'anno Wizards of the Coast ha svolto correttamente il suo compito, portando un corposo numero di piattaforme la versione videoludica del suo popolare gioco di carte appositamente disegnata per andare incontro a tutti i neofiti di Magic. Soprattutto a quelli che non hanno mai giocato al card game, magari per paura di ritrovarsi al verde, ma avrebbero sempre voluto farlo. Come tutti gli anni ci sarebbe piaciuto vedere magari una migliore pulizia dell'aspetto tecnico o qualche spunto importante a sottolineare che c'è il desiderio di far evolvere la serie Duels of the Planeswalkers ma anche questa volta, complice l'importante e richiesta introduzione del Sealed Play, non ci possiamo proprio lamentare e anzi ci sentiamo convinti nel promuovere con una buona votazione questo Magic 2014.

Magic: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014 isn’t a substitute for the real game, but it’s clear that it’s not trying to be. Its narrower scope of cards and options work well to introduce new players to the game, as well as give veterans a quick fix. Despite its limitations, Magic: 2014’s large number of unlockable cards and solid base gameplay give it more than enough replay value to keep players coming back for dozens of hours in lieu of its shortcomings. Its relatively cheap price point make this package and even more compelling deal. Each year seems to make great steps forward while ignoring some of the things holding it back. We’re still not quite at the point I think the series is capable of, but there’s no doubt this is the closes the franchise has come yet.

Il gioco Stainless Games rimane comunque un'esperienza assolutamente da provare, divertente, profonda e realizzata con cura, soprattutto grazie alla decennale esperienza che Wizards of The Coast ha riversato nel rendere bilanciato, divertente e magnetico il suo gioco. Tutti gli amanti di Magic 2014 potranno trovare in Magic 2014 Duels of Planeswalkers un simpatico placebo in attesa che le nuove espansioni arrivino nei negozi, mentre coloro che non conoscono il gioco di carte collezionabili potrebbero scoprire un affascinante universo a loro sconosciuto, per poi rischiare di non uscirne più. L'anno prossimo arriveranno sui nostri schermi molti avversari degni di nota, riuscirà Magic 2014 Duels of Planeswalkers a mantenere la sua leadership?

DarkZero (Jun 24, 2013)
As with any yearly iteration of a game series, fans hope for the words, “This is the best version yet,” and for Magic 2014, this rings true. Finally, we have the ability to create our own decks, thanks to the Sealed Play mode and its booster pack gameplay. Even if it isn’t as fleshed-out as I would have liked, it’s still a fun mode that shows what could potentially be the almighty feature for Magic 2015. Fans will like the new modes and the inclusion of Silver creatures, and newcomers shouldn’t feel scared of joining the fun, as Magic 2014 is once again another successful attempt at digitally recreating the intricate card game and breaking it down to easy, understandable fun.

Gaming Nexus (Aug 07, 2013)
Great gameplay overcomes a lack of mode variety as the series produces another stellar installment. Sealed play finally gives us accessing to true deck building, but it comes with a price: lack of specialty games and limitations on the number of user-created decks you can save at a given time. Magic 2014 still provides one of the most enjoyable gaming experiences out there for fans of strategy and card games.

GameTrailers (Jul 02, 2013)
There are a few unique niceties players of past games will pick up on. A number of rare and powerful cards now featuring art that animates as if it were a hologram, for example. It’s not much, but brings a bit of life to a game that so often looks static. Magic 2014 is still well worth its modest ten dollar price tag, but players looking to jump into a duel for the first time would be better served by the better-rounded 2012 and 2013 versions of the series, even if their art doesn’t move.

Stainless Games creates another solid adaptation of Magic: The Gathering, but plays it safe by delivering a product that does little to improve on last year's game. It's like the FIFA of collectible card games.

Impulse Gamer (Jul, 2013)
Magic 2014 doesn't exactly offer a wealth of content - the campaign modes are short and the Sealed Mode is especially limited - but the 2014 card set seems to be well represented and Stainless continues to hone the interface and game modes with each annual release. With the excellent multiplayer mode included, Magic 2014 offers a great way to learn the game, practice the game, and (most importantly) play the game competitively with others - all for less than the price of a deck of real Magic cards. If you're a fan of the game or have an interest in learning, there's not much more you could ask for.

PC Gamer (Jul 08, 2013)
Magic 2014 is a step in the right direction for the franchise and at $10, it’s a game that anyone with even a passing interest in Magic will enjoy. It still doesn’t feel like a fully featured Magic game and isn’t able to capture the sense of meaningful deck construction and testing, but it’s a big enough improvement over Magic 2013 to warrant another try. As much as Sealed Play is needlessly restricted, it’s still a satisfying part of the game that could very well mark a bright future for any sequels.

Game Informer Magazine (Jul 11, 2013)
Duels of the Planeswalkers isn't the full Magic experience. It's a taste of the broader landscape to entice players and make them more comfortable attending a casual Friday Night Magic event. If you're new to Magic: The Gathering, Duels of the Planeswalkers remains the best way to learn how to play without the intimidation of other players. Even with the online connection issues and additional purchases tied to making the most of Sealed mode, this is the best version to date. It's easy to recommend for new players just learning and veteran spellslingers looking for new single-player matches.

GameStar (Germany) (Jul 09, 2013)
Neues Jahr, neues Magic, wenig Neues. Ich finde das Fifa-Prinzip passt nicht wirklich zu einem Sammelkartenspiel wie Magic. Besonders in der aktuellen Ausgabe komme ich mir als Spieler der Vorgänger ein bisschen vor, wie zur wandelnden Brieftasche degradiert. Ein paar neue Decks, Glitzerüberzug für Karten, kleine Komfortanpassungen, ein Haufen kostenpflichtiger (teilweise otionaler) DLCs und der halbgare Sealed Modus, hinter dem lauernd die Ingame-Käufe warten - das würde mich als Kunden eher dazu verleiten, vielleicht mal ein Jahr zu pausieren. Oder auf eine definitive Version zu warten, die endlich ein Rundum-Sorglos-Paket für Magic-Fans ist.

If you’re a fan of Magic (or want to be), this is a great game to pick up. The visual representation of the duels, as well as rewarding Challenges and time-consuming Sealed Deck mode, all make for a fun experience for the player. Now if only they’d use their powers to make a dedicated custom deck building tool with every magic card ever made. That would be something…

Level 7 (Jul 08, 2013)
Med tanke på förlagans natur som ett spel med djup där du sällan, om ens aldrig, ser två likadana kortlekar, faller Magic 2014 platt. Variationen är helt enkelt för liten och utmaningen uteblir för den erfarne. Spelet är istället en alldeles ypperlig inträdesport för den nyfikne nybörjaren och förklarar på ett pedagogiskt sätt spelets regler och kortens förmågor.

Se avete apprezzato la versione 2014 del popolare gioco di carte collezionabili, allora non avete motivo per non giocare l'expansion pack rilasciato a fine settembre. Reperibile su Steam al prezzo di 4,99 €, il pacchetto mette a disposizione un sostanzioso numero di nuove carte, dei mazzi inediti, nuove sfide per il single player, e ovviamente ulteriore longevità per le partite online e con i vostri amici. I giocatori saltuari che hanno già portato a termine le vecchie sfide, potrebbero trovare con questo add-on un buon motivo per tornare a visitare i piani d'esistenza del multiverso.

L'arrivée du mode Paquet Scellé aurait pu être un très bon point pour Magic 2014, et il l'est... pendant deux heures. Malheureusement, la limitation à seulement deux campagnes (deux decks) avant de devoir payer a vraiment de quoi surprendre. Si on comprend qu'il ne faut pas marcher sur les plates-bandes de Magic Online, on ne peut s'empêcher de se sentir lésé. Pour le reste, les changements sont plutôt rares mais Magic reste Magic, c'est-à-dire un très bon jeu de cartes.
