OXCGN’s Magic The Gathering: Duels of The Planeswalkers 2013 Review
by Kent Sobey

Duels of The Planeswalkers, the XBLA iteration of the massively popular ‘Magic the Gathering’ strategy card game, was originally released in 2009. Shortly after that, in 2012, a follow up was released called, you guessed it, Duels of The Planeswalkers 2012, and now another follow up 2013 has been released.
I haven’t ever been much of a Magic the Gathering fan so I’m not going to sit here and try to compare it to the previous releases; instead, I’ll just tell you what I thought of this as an individual game.
At its core the game is a strategy game but there’s a lot of luck involved too.
Some might argue that a good player will be able to take the cards they are dealt and win with them; well, I’m not a good player so this doesn’t apply to me.
Find out if you should gather ’round!

Have the rules and design remained faithful?

Now this review is not going to go into the history of Magic: The Gathering.
Most people have heard of this card game in the last ten or so years and I am certainly not going to be talking about the various rule changes, card changes and general mechanics of the game as Magic: The Gathering – Duels Of The Planeswalkers has been released for people that either previously played the game, are currently playing the game or those that are interested in starting.
It is simple to pick up and play and can be used as a welcome addition for the card game player, however it certainly isn’t an alternative to the original game itself. Having played the card game in the past I was not going to miss an opportunity to see what Wizards of the Coast had in-store for its players a month before the new M10 set.
