Magic: The Gathering will always be remembered as the game that launched a hobby. A thousand copycat collectible card games trail pathetically in its magnificent wake.
But that launch was over twenty years ago, and there are some new kids on the block that look capable of giving old man Garfield a run for his money. Especially when it comes to playing on mobile platforms.
So this 2015 iteration of the now-annual Duels of the Planeswalkers really needs to pull out all the stops to impress us.
A weak interface and limited card selection can't disguise that Magic is still a great game
