god job as always Dj. ;)
mag is a game with so much promise, i really hope that a strong community develops and strongly supports it. it's pretty hardcore in its execution and i guess it would be a turn off to alot(wanna be hardcore shooter players).

the only thing that stopped it from being perfect is a lack of keyboard/mouse support like UT3.

This is a real good game. Very fun.

I found the demo became very tedious very fast, somehow it is just so uncharismatic and the feeling of combat has none of the kinetic satisfaction of other top tier shooters out there. No point in hundreds of players if the core gameplay is so dull IMO.

Just going to copy and paste fmy old comment...

Even with my complaints, I bought it when it came out.

Its very addicting.

One thing that I love about the game is the big open war, reminds me of Frontlines fuel of War, except there is no "war toys" or vehicles to control and less futuristic (which is a shame), other than the transport vehicles.
Anyways, I think its a pretty cool game, but i still think the gunplay is bad compared to MW and Crysis.

I tried all factions to the point to try the cool scopes and the AR and Raven lacks that "punch" when shooting while Valor has the best one and then SVER then Raven.

I still went with Raven though considering I love the concept of high-tech sleek look that makes them look like a international "counter terrorist" force.

One thing is that my sister which is around 27 years old was addicted to Warhawk is in love with MAG now, both actually and she hated the beta like I did.

Once you know what you are doing and know that you cant go Rambo like MW2 in this game then it makes sense. Teamwork means everything and once a proper teamwork is going on then its tons of fun.

The only game I can think of that MAG reminds me of is Frontlines Fuel of War except you cant control vehichles (other than use turrets and drive transport humvees). Many have pushed the game off by videos and the beta, including me, but once I decided to give the full game a shot by a big chance then I slowly started to love it and kept playing alot.

But MAG is definitely not for everyone, but if you have a slight interest, its worth a try, or a rent if that option exist where you live.

i think it's a game that will only show it's potential if you're willing to put patience and effert into it.. and i think that might ultimately be it's down fall - well in terms of sales atleast

Not trying to offend, but how can they claim 200+ player matches if you are not directly competing with all the players? I know someone has to understand that. It's very misleading.

Go S.v.E.r :P

now if this game only had mw2 weapon(s) customization it would be perfect, love the game to bits, everyone should least rent it geto level 10

Yeah it would be a total mess If you got 200+ players in the direct area.. It's just a marketing trick to make this stand out of the crowd.

I hated the beta but sounds like some people find the full game to be a bit less messy.

I just find the gunplay to be VERY boring in this game. If the game can't make the act of firing a weapon feel good, it's a really hard thing to overcome.

Definitely lacks that "punch" and satistfaction for the weapons when reloading and shooting.
Its not like Crysis, MW, Killzone 2, Bad Company 2 unfortunetly.

I dont like it, but I can say that for some reason it grew on me, enough not to care for it anymore. All my attention goes to killing enemies and, support my team to attack/defend whatever the objective the leader gives me.

Well, guess i found a game i do want my friend to buy. I mean, it looks really arcadey and you can have a 128 men deathmatch :3 It sounds pretty sweet, despite the videos showing otherwise.

I guess it all comes down to the kind of person you are and the kind of people you end up with playing. I'm the solo type so i don't care who i end up playing with anyway, so it's just a matter of me liking it or not, and i do. Oh, and there is that other matter concerning me not having a PS3, but that is what best friends are for, right? They buy the rival console so you get the chance to play any game you want!

Isn't too bad, I knocked everything I saw before it, but mate got it and I thought it looked quite good so bought it. It's definately not amazing, but it's still pretty decent. Definately warrenting the ok reviews its getting. I'd label it in the 7.5-8 range, sometimes it can feel really epic. It almost has a socom feel to the map design.

One of the BEST FPS games i played this generation.
