Excellent mage gameplay system.
Perfect blend of gameplay, music and graphics.
Unique and addictive magic system.
Funny storyline skewers a lot of popculture touchstones.
Cooperative campaign play holds promise.
Controls can be a problem during high intensity battles.
Still not particularly optimized.
Too many bugs.
Autosaving system can leave you in the lurch.
Visuals so cluttered in large battles that you can lose sight of your health bar.
