    MAG Beta - First Impressions ?

    Played it last night and thought it was pretty awful although admittedly i didnt have a clue as to what was going on.

    The graphics are below par as is the frame rate, the guns feel too 'light', the map is terribly cluttered, too many people talking at once on while playing, you cant tgell when youve been hit, but worst of all, the game just feels dull

    Im going to give it one last bash now before I condemn it forever

    Yes its a beta thank you I realise that, but its a beta of a severely dull game, unless they rewrite it completely I wont be buying it. I posted this thread for other people who have played it to give their impressions not to be told its a beta, but cheers.

    I bet you'll love the Halo Reach beta you fanboy.

    i just didnt want you to condemn the game on the basis that it is an unfinished product.

    ok my views (i havnt played it but from what ive seen and my excellent intuition)

    from what i saw, i kinda agree it seemed dull. the level design just didnt do it for me. the playability seemed to lack oopmh

    but i wont know for sure unless i try my hand at the game.

    I dont normally respond to your posts as I regard you as something of a buffoon but I wont be playing the Halo reach beta because Halo 2 and 3 are generic, overrated rubbish and I have no reason to believe Halo reach will be anything different.

    hmm my impressions of MAG werent good either, i didnt have a clue as to what was going on, im going to give it a proper bash now or when the servers come to life, yes the main problem i had was i didnt know when i was being shot at or wheni was shooting at people the didnt die, i knows its a beta and i am aware that there may be problems, im merely pointing out those two problems,

    if they have a full 256 players....you have to wait

    its like when you go in server room and cant enter until one person leaves from a specific server.

    so keep clicking!

    oh wait..you cant click...keep pressing!

    XOXOXO

    It's 5PM GMT and 6PM BST

    So it's 6-9 instead of 5-8

    as i say, i got in many times last night but that was on the american server which i believe they only gave a few thousand keys out for in america so its bound to quieter, its in europe where they went wild and gave everyone a key

    It should be, anyone who calls a game 'Massive Action Game' really shouldnt be allowed to create games in the first place, Ive turned it off it really isnt my cup of tea, games like this live and die by their combat and sadly this fails miserably, the shooting/getting shot is completely uninvolved and bland its like playing a pc fps from the early 90's. And when you move left and right and the whole thing turns into a blur...... just awful.

    im not sure about it, too much goin on and dont get very far ,maps r huge

    you're supposed to stick to you own little area, but the trouble is either noone is communicating (as was the case just then ) or everyone is talking at once (as was the case last night) either way its chaos.

    Thank you for starting the thread, iNSOMANiAC.

    I thought I was the only person who had played it that wouldn't be buying it.
