MAG (PlayStation 3)

 

When you first hear that MAG supports 256-player online matches, you may be inclined to picture hordes of soldiers swarming on top of one another and filling the air with thousands of bullets. The reality is that skirmishes play out on a much smaller...

MAG Review

 

MAG stands for Massive Action Game. Well, they did live up to the title

The sounds of battle are loud and realistic accompanied with a military score. At least sometimes it's a score, other times it's a hard rock sound which seems to change on the fly. Aside from that, the only worry is that being an online only game,...

Here's the problem.MAG itself is nearly impossible to review. What you're reviewing is a community.

Penny Arcade's take on MAG is entirely, depressingly accurate. After you go through a quick training mission to teach you the ropes of MAG's shooter-style gameplay, which is simple and intuitive for anyone who's ever played an FPS on a console before,...

A fantastic experience if you are willing to commit. It has been a long time coming, but Sony and Zipper Interactive's latest collaboration is finally here. The biggest draw to...

Usually, I can get through a FPS quickly and offer up my review on the game soon after it's released.. Seeing as MAG was one game that needed some extra attention, I decided to take my time on this one. It's a good thing too as my opinion on the game...

MAG tries and does some things well. 256 player battles still seem too chaotic and the game relies heavily on having a good team which is hard when it's a public style offering. There needs to be more maps added and some balancing between the factions...

Earth is completely at peace, at least as far as the public is concerned. In the year 2024, The Millennium Peace Accord put drastic restrictions on troop deployments and limited the size of armies that governments could levy. The three major private...

256 Kinds of Chaos

I guess if i had the time for a game that required so much commitment, I'd play it. alas, i don't, but it sure does look pretty interesting

Sony's online behemoth proves the old adage that less is indeed more

Relentlessly action packed battles ; Balanced weapons make a fairly even playing field ; Character progression

Most matches descend into a bottle-neck ; Secondary objectives can be confusing ; Some respawn times take forever

We won’t dwell on our reasons for posting a tardy review of MAG again. If you’re interested then read it here. What we can say is that after our initial cold feelings toward Sony’s impossibly large online shooter we’ve slowly warmed to the frantic...

MAG � Be all that you can be

Frantic combat, level and rank based advancement

Playing with other people, lag

Outside of a few gripes, Massive Action Game is a fantastic experience that gets the blood pumping. The challenge of commanding troops really pays off when you see your objectives fall and your side roll to victory. When you find a squad that will work...
