Massive Action Game
Availability: This item will be released on Friday 29 January, 2010.

If you think you've seen all that online shooters have to offer you haven't experienced MAG. Instead of just a dozen or so people in small scale confrontations this battlefield is filled with 256 other players, all working together in their own 8-man squads.


As you gain more experience in MAG your character's abilities and weapons will improve and evolve, with the best players earning the right to command more and more people and take a greater strategic role in the wider conflict. This is all out virtual war on a scale that has never been possible before on PS3.

Hot from me as it is a good deal, but not ordering as I really disliked the demo and if I do get it it will be when it is less than £10.
#2
I found the beta a bit hard to start with, but after a few games I was hooked :thumbsup:
#3
It will bomb, I will pick it up for £20 in a month or two.

Weren't impressed with the beta, but good price none the less

no thanks. Rather buy Heavy Rain. Beta was awful in my opinion! Hot price for a Pre Order though....,

Voted hot; this game is aimed at the more mature gamer which will hopefully leave all the kids playing CoD

If you say so but I didn't think the game play looked like it was targeted at a more mature gamer :/ or the name Massive action game but there we go.... :whistling:
#11
Obviously it's not COD, look what COD was like when it first came out, yes it was a good game, but compared with MW2, it's not the best. For the first attempt at making a game with 256 players, I think it's good, but I do agree, with MW2 out now, this game is very likely to do badly. But it's a stepping stone for future online play, to show that 256 players online can be done.
#12
Voted hot because it's a good price for a pre-order, but I haven't had a chance to experience the game.

I was hoping to get a chance at the demo/beta, but I think I came in too late and missed it (did I?). The only information I have to go on is what I read online, which of course is virtually useless as it's all based on personal opinion.
I saw some screenshots and the graphics seemed a bit... meh. I understand that it has to be scaled back due to the size of the battles, but some of it just seems poorly done, such as the arms. In the screenshots I've seen, the arm holding the front of the gun looks about 4 foot long, and way too skinny!
#13
HOT price for unreleased, but....

I agree with the above comments... Been beta testing it for 6 months now, its just not got what COD has. The lastest beta is a big improvement, and yet left most of us unimpressed. I really hope Frame Rates improve with the Final Release, and the resolve the distance travelling (far spawning).

It simply has a less arcade feel to it; thankfully the kids will be happy with CoD! :thumbsup:
#15
Dont compare it to COD compare it to the Battlefield games....I prefered it to COD in many ways (Im one prestige 3 so I think I can be fairly unbiased!)...The experience works much better than COD and its more of a long-term game....CODs failing is the small number of players (especially if some drop out midway)...I think that all games should aim for 64 player maps at least but the architecture of current consoles can rarely do it.

BTW this has a steep curve...unless you find a niche role you may find levelling up will take an age!
#16
Not impressed with the beta either.
#17
MAG seems to be a good game imho, based on my time with the Beta. It is much more like SOCOM than COD, requiring teamwork and tactics to win. I think it will find an audience, but will not sell on a huge scale.

Personally I will pass, as my MP gaming will be pretty exclusively spent on BF:BC2 come March.
#18
I'd be interested in seeing the finished game...only tried to get online with the Beta a couple of times, and could never connect, so didn't get a chance to play it. Bit of a wasted download, to be honest.
#19
From the just released statistics, most people didnt even get past level 1 ?

I ranked up to level 10 quickly last time and finished on level 32, i've been in the beta for months and seen it improve. Finally when I get the final game my skill points wont be reset.

Simply put, this is a team game. Once you upgrade your weapons the game changes a lot. I've never experienced a game like it in Domination mode or Acquisition, which are both awesome. Most people only played Sabotage during the last beta.

I saw many morons simply sniping, or not doing their assigned objective. Other morons where like level 10 but had not spent any skill points and hot upgraded their weapons with stabalisers, though I blame the hidden in game menu for that. I saw many morons trying to heal me with an arc welding tool also.

Once you hit the other modes, you will realise the vast size of the maps, with lots of geometry. I suppose this is why compromise has been made on texture quality in places, but they are huge. I actually found the graphics ok, not not really as bad as moaners complained about.

Theres nothing like how all the dots connect in domination. I thought it would be chaos, but its not. My kill/death ratio is like 4, by simply following the objectives. Its nice to see how objectives are interelated amongst squads and platoons. You cant have that bombing run because nobody has taken out the AA. You cant get your mobile spawning point further up, because nobody has taken out the blockade. The enemy cant mortar you because you have destroyed their motor. You can now parachute in because another squad has taken out the AA. ect, ect. This is how the game works, combining multiple objecitves to form a complete solution to the battle, something i've yet to see in an other online game.

MAG is awesome and groundbreaking, as groundbreaking as Quake 3 and Tribes. Sorry if younger gamers cannot grasp this and think MW is the be all. Its not, its just different.

The best weapon to upgrade first is heavy machine gun, with scope and stabalisers, keep on upgrading this weapon first before others. This will give you a distinct advantage to rank up fast. Also, put your medical repair kit in the first slot, you dont want to have to go through grenades to get to this fast. Remember if hit, duck, repair, fire again, repeat. Also heavy Armour is a must and not really encumbering.

Use smoke. Was it only me ? But not many used smoke which helps a lot in game. Also only fire if you ABSOLUTELY have to and are sure of a kill, because you will appear on the enemy radar when you do. I could take out many guys with a knife they didnt see me. Once I got to the top of the Raven C base in Sabotage, and took out 8 guys with a knife who where too busy firing at below, simply because I did not stand out on the rader.

I hope these tips help.

Hot for the price.

The game itself is pretty poor. The gameplay is really out-dated, even R6: Vegas had better gameplay. The graphics (for an exclusive especially) are really poor, especially when you compare it to the likes of Bad Company 2 and MW2.

Good idea badly executed.

Somebody else who only played Sabotage, which I would admit, is not really very good or indictive ofthe game.

Credibility bypass.

Like I said, the idea is good (I loved the game modes that i managed to play, was only lvl 13 or so), but the gameplay is old and boring. It felt like going back to the PS1 days. I can remember 007 Nightfire playing quite similar to MAG. Just because a game has decen't game modes doesnt mean its a good game.

A lot of potential, but I'm guessing a sequel may be out of the question as the sales probably wont take off for this. The fact that they are charging full price for an online only game won't win too many people over.

completely agree , the best thing is that it isnt anything like CoD . I gave the beta 7 -8 hours and after the first 2 it starts to make sense the objectives etc . I am definitely getting this , its not in the same league as BF-BC2 but its a hell of a lot better than MW2 and involves teamwork instead of just running around lone wolfing it .

If you want something that isnt COD then save your money for Bad Company 2 ;)
#26
Released on the 29th of february 2010? Friday????


I don't think so!
#27
I'm getting bad company 2 cos I love bad company 1 on xbox 360, i'll play both, I cant see the comparison, both games play completely different. Its like comparing Motorstorm with GT5 !

Unfortunetly MW 2 looks exactly like MW1, nothing great here as a followup.

#28
I'm the same, didnt enjoy demo.

I might buy it , when it drops below £20
#29
Going to wait for some people I actually trust to play it. As with all sony first party titles the spin is in overdrive they say AAA and get 90% reviews then not so great read Killzone / Resistance.

It might have hundreds of players but I bet the multiplayer is dead pan, no one uses voice on the ps3, there is no unified party chat and lobby system.

It just doesnt work right as an effective online gamming platform. Which is why the majority buy the multiple platform FPS on the PC and 360.

There are loads of proper AA titles comming out in the next few months, Mass Effect 2, Bioshock 2, BAd COmpany 2, stil playing Dragon Age, MW2 multiplayer, I got a stack of other stuff still sealed waiting to be played, dont really have time for more sony derivative rubbish.
#30
Will rent this firs to see how the final game is. But tempted to save my money for bad company 2 because that looks awesome. Destructable landscapes is the way forward..... Watch out cod mw 3 cough..... Back to this game, ok initial price and heat added for best price so far. Just expected this to be cheaper to shift more units. I.e although cod mw2 would have sold anyway, loads more went for the cheap price. Makro 19.99!! . Games should be 25 quid or less with the odd exception of 30 for say a mega blockbuster game, cod, Mario, gta, etc. No wonder piracy is around.
#31
Expect this to be in bargain bins before your know it. Awful game, samey uninspiring battlegrounds, very dated gameplay and somewhat dated gfx also.. The epitome of generic fps. The only selling point is the maximum number of online players.

I'm guilty of this also. But why should we have to innvest so much to play the game 'proper?' Especially when it's so uninspiring and uinrewarding to begin with!? That in itself is another down side of the game in my opinion.
#33
I've just remembered what game it reminds me of... Haze.

That in itself is bad enough ;-)

Steer clear, it'll be a tenner in a month!

wow talk about bolting your mouth off, you didnt even play the domination maps or game type. Dated gfx ? compared to what when you see the size of the domination maps and whats going on.

MW2 losers should shut their holes.

I dont feel inspired to go on every MW2 and say how generic it is but MW2 sheep do this all the time for some reason to MAG.

Oi, fanboy, shut your hole!
I've never had to call someone a 'fanboy' before, but you have all the classic signs. Why do we have to play a specific game mode to appreciate the game?

I haven't played the game at all, but from all the negative reviews, and frankly uninspiring screenshots, I have no interest in buying it, especially at full price. Why is that hard for you to believe? Can't people express a genuine dislike for something without you having a go at them?

LOL. I can't beleive there's actually such a thing as a M.A.G fanboy! :w00t:

Either that or your employed by Sony's marketing department.
#37
Also your jumping to assumptions that EVERYONE plays MW2. Not true.

I play CSS most of the time with the odd game on BF1943, which imo are 2 of the best fps games out, despite one of them being ancient.

Fact is, if the gameplay of M.A.G was stepped up to the low COD standards, then it might have stood a chance. The fact that you mouth off saying COD is an average fps game etc etc is true, but at least they've managed to make a 'polished' fps game, to make it better than average.

If you can find a decent server these days, than Call of Duty 2 is arguably the best FPS in the last decade.
#38
Its another FPS fail from sony. More derivative over hyped rubbish.

Thought that was Halo 3 xbot ?

BTW I own a 360 and Wii as well as a good PC and have all online FPS, you guys with your MAG hate are laughable.
