I have on occasion played Magic the Gathering, I have always done the version that involves actual physical cards, but I have debated on occasion whether or not to give the online game a whirl. However, this recent news about Magic Online III isn’t exactly giving me that extra shove to convert to online.
Apparently according to IGN it has a poorly-designed interface that has the tendency to not save your settings. Even worse is their 5.5 rating out of 10, calling it nothing more than mediocre.
I would really like to switch to the online game, due to the fact that it’s hard to get a group of people together. Especially since I’m in my early 20s and a lot of my friends are busy with work and for some, babies. However, being an online card game having a well designed interface is extremely important. So as of now I’m probably going to stick to WoW as far as online games go and likely just keep harassing my friends to hang out to pick up a game of Magic.
