    MAG is unlike anything else on PS3. In fact, it's unlike anything else on any console system.
  2. Mag inaugurates MMO shooters, focusing completely on massive online gameplay. It is a very attractive alternative for those looking for something different or those who always wanted to participate in an immersive global battle instead of separate skirmishes.
  3. MAG places a strong emphasis on teamwork with an intelligent command structure that brings order to battles of enormous scale. It could use more map variety, better balancing, and ways to decrease player downtime, but overall, it's a strong foundation for an ambitious new franchise.
  4. MAG is lots of fun make fun - if you got yourself a good team.

    MAG is definitely a fun online action game, with a good amount of depth and challenge to keep players addicted for quite some time. However, while the 256-player battles are impressive, some annoying glitches hold the title back.
  6. It's not the finished article by any means, and through updates Zipper may realise its potential. It needs more game modes, tweaks to the spawn system, better controls, and it needs to make everything a lot clearer for those who find clans and massive action intimidating. If it does this, MAG will gain a foothold and thrive.
  7. A lot of bugs and lack of content soils a game with a fascinating concept of vast online battles. Maybe something for the real war enthusiasts, otherwise we advise you to stay away from this.

If you play call of duty style you will hate this game die a lot. If you at least attempt to work along with your teammates and form strategies it becomes one of the best experiences you can get from a FPS. Even if your not the best FPS player, you can still do decent and have fun in this game. Expand

    ok so plain and simple this game is not , their will be a lot of players that jump into this game thinking its your typical shooter... wrong ok so plain and simple this game is not , their will be a lot of players that jump into this game thinking its your typical shooter... wrong . this shooter goes much much further into the depths of MMO territory if you have played a game with guilds you will understand MAG that much more. planning out exactly what your clan wants to execute is not for the simple minds that want a quick TDM this is very large scale planning it takes a little time to understand but be warned if you do not have the concentration and ability to communicate goals then you will not like this shooter for people that want strategy in character builds and planning on the field will absolutely love it Expand

    After playing the beta for this game my hype level for this game dropped from a 9 to about a 6.5. It could have been much better with less After playing the beta for this game my hype level for this game dropped from a 9 to about a 6.5. It could have been much better with less issues. Even still i went out and bought it day one (midnight actually) and i couldnt have been more wrong about this game. Though the graphics (could) be better, i know they aren't because of the massive levels and player count. The objective based modes are where this game shines. From attacking an enemy base to defending your home turf this game is solid. When you get a team working together this game easily becomes an 11! (to bad that doesnt happen as often as it should) All in all this game is a must own for all fps fans who own a ps3 Expand

    Anyone else find it strange how practically everyone who has played the game is giving it 8 -10s? The only thing bringing this review score Anyone else find it strange how practically everyone who has played the game is giving it 8 -10s? The only thing bringing this review score down are two-year old fanboys giving it ones and twos, well, and IGN... It's hard to tell the difference between the two anymore though. Expand

    My vote says it all. If you like tactical and strategic based FPS's, this is your game. If you like to run and gun and play individually My vote says it all. If you like tactical and strategic based FPS's, this is your game. If you like to run and gun and play individually on a game like COD MW2, this is not your game. Expand
