MAG Review

MAG, which stands for "Massive Action Game" (very imaginative huh?) is a multiplayer-only first-person shooter video game developed by Zipper Interactive for the Sony PlayStation 3. The game was released in january 2011.
This game is based on an innovative new server architecture that supports up to 256 player ON ONE MAP. To avoid turning the game into a clusterf*ck the developers also split the players into teams of 8 with 4 teams making a platoon and 4 platoons a company. Players are given many options of customization, from the ability to customize the face, voice, and armor of their characters and what weapons and kit they carry into battle to what skills they have by putting skill points into skill trees like Assault, Marksman, Close Quarters, Special Ops, Engineering, Athleticism, Vehicles, and Resistances, which then branches off into its own skill tree.
There is not much more to say about the game, it was built for the massive battles it can support but the thing is that there are not as many people actually playing it. Rarely you see a full server but luckly the maps are not that huge to make a game with full players boring.
Yes, it is pretty generic but it's server  architecture is a step forward in technology and above all it is A FUN GAME and it can provide hours upon hours of satisfaction. The game does it's job well, the framerates are perfect and finding a server with dozens of players takes seconds. Playstation 3 gamers will also appreciate this game if they ever want to make a break from CoD or Battlefield.

Here are some videos to help you decide if you want to give this game a try or not.

  5. i loved mag when it came out over a year ago. played it all the time, leveled fast and my team always seemed to win. that game had some balance issues, maybe they have patched it since then or added maps?

  6. There is too much players on one map and too much stuff going on imo. I think I'll have to give it a try before saying anything though.
