Despite its shortcomings, this expansion is a great addition to any fan of Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planewalkers.
- The new decks
- Great value for money
- The overall solid content
- The lack of updates to sealed play
- The weak storyline
The expansion pack adds nothing to sealed play, which is a massive blow to the expansion's potential to provide more replay value. This will be particularly disappointing to those who enjoy playing DoTP 2014 online, as this particular gameplay mode is the closest that console gamers have to playing the card game without having to turn to a computer.
It's a shame to see that what new content is included is not presented in a fresh manner. The interfaces are scarcely different, with the same interface for each realm and no variation on the playing board since the core game. This isn't a dealbreaker, but it is indicative of what this expansion is about; providing exactly what is needed, and little more.
This is definitely a worthwhile purchase for those who enjoyed the main game. However, it is perhaps predictably merely a content add-on, and not totally satisfying at that. The much-wanted gameplay refinements will likely only arrive with the inevitable next installment in this series, but at least this will tide gamers over until then.
