Ratings and Reviews
It’s what one expects,although some minor issues ensue
Magic Arena is definitely a good game to play on PC and the idea of it being ported onto mobile devices is no easy task, and I think that for the most part the game looks and feels fine when it works as intended. As of writing the mobile version has been out for two days so hopefully by then the issues I state will be fixed. The only issues I have with Arena on mobile is that the ui is a direct copy of the PC’s version, making the screen seem much smaller than it is which can make it hard for some people to see what to press if they want to access their decks for example. Every time I boot up the game I keep getting a “asset error” when there’s nothing wrong with how stuff looks so I have to wait a bit to load into the main menus. Lastly whenever you tutor for a card or have a large board state the game becomes clunky as you can either type the card you want through a filter or search for it manually and have to use a scroll bar instead of just swiping; with large boardstates the game arranges your cards in a linear row instead of a large square like in the PC version so if you want to activate a creatures ability you swipe to scroll across your creatures which makes the game lag for a bit, and the overall size of what makes the game struggle is yet to be determined as I’ve only encountered this about two times.
Exciting, but annoying.
This card game has popped up in my life multiple times and each one of those times I get SO excited! From being a little kid hanging with my uncles and their friends playing to being a pre teen and finding my cousins cards and starting a club in highschool. I’m now in my mid 20s and have since put my cards in the back of the closet (I tried teaching my wife to no luck.) Finding this game after not knowing it has been on PC for sometime is just amazing! I love the graphics, the overall play and really just the fact that I have this in my pocket!!! The only downfall is the errors. I read in another review that it was just put on in late March so hopefully in the future I can be mid game and not have to worry about being booted out. I just played a match and was kicked out 4 times, reloaded the game and luckily it put me back in the match until finally it read error and I was kicked. I just hope this gets resolved because you really do have a treasure of an app here!
Must have app!
Arena is an amazing game, the game does an amazing job at explaining how magic works, game strategies, and is easy to understand in general. Many people are complaining about lag with large board states, but it is as mentioned, with large board states only. That is to be expected as the game has to keep track of both the opponent’s board state and your board state. This involves so many various mechanics that it would be expected to have lag. The only other complaint that I could possibly think of is acquirement of cards. The wildcard system makes sense, but it is highly slanted towards players who make in game purchases. I think that it should be a bit more friendly towards free to play users but I still think that is an amazing piece of software. But that most recent complaint is of course very minor and is outweighed by the fact that Arena is free, so they have to make money in some way or form to keep it going.
So in short, it does have its flaws, but what app doesn’t. I think that the developers have done an amazing job at bringing arena to mobile and don’t get enough credit.
