Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

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.

MAG is short for "Massive Action Game"
Take to the skies in helicopters and jets or sit back and call in the airstrikes
Being a team player is the best way to get ahead in MAG
Winning the war means taking control of key areas on the huge battlefield maps

Although you can play the game as a standard first person shooter working together with your teammates is the only way to succeed, with each squad pursuing different tactics and objects - from directing air strikes, to taking part in parachute drops and overrunning enemy gun emplacements.

As you gain more experience in the game 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 a home console.

Key Features
  • 256 reasons: The largest scale online shooter ever seen on a console, with 256 people playing across maps in gigantic mile-wide levels.
  • Brothers in arms: Become the leader of your own squad of 8 players, then work your way up to platoon and company commander as you gain more and more control of the battlefield.
  • Veteran soldier: Earn experience in battle (and by following orders) and upgrade your character, your weapons and your ability to call in airstrikes and artillery.
  • Top gun: Take command of a range of different vehicles, including tanks, armoured personnel carriers and aircraft.
  • The big three: Join one of three factions, from the U.S. army style Valor group to the more unorthodox S.V.E.R and the futuristic Raven team.
About the Developer: Zipper Interactive
Many developers have their own specialities and Zipper's is definitely tactical shoot 'em-ups. The Washington-based studio has been responsible for almost all the SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs games and is currently working on the 256-player MAG. They were acquired by Sony in 2006.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive 31 Jan 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Let's just make one thing clear. If you haven't bought this yet, dont listen to the reviewers who compare it to COD. As they think that they represent everyones opinion when they say it isnt up to CODs standards! Ignore them!
I have always played COD, and do love it. However, so far i am also enjoying this game. In fact, i havent played on cod since i bought this, (the day of release). It is really enjoyable, with its massive maps and different objectives. There are many other positives, but im not a fan of long reviews. I do recommend it though!
If i could suggest one thing, approach this game with an open mind, and dont instantly compare it to COD, as it is a very different game.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
MAG is a very challenging game for us oldies. As you can imagine a 128 a side game makes the life expectancy of a rookie very short just as in real life. I think that's the attraction for me. It's much more realistic than any other shoot 'em up games. COD has become almost a fantasy game made easy for the user. This is hard. It takes a lot to level up and the weapons start off very weak. Upgrades are hard to earn. Snipers are everywhere and, just as in real life, there is no kill cam and friendly fire is off. At the start you join one of three armies and play all your games for them. More realism. Once you get into the big game with 255 other players it's just mayhem. Your team of 8, along with 3 other teams, is given an objective to attack or defend within the big war. It is, effectively, a 32 a side game of Demolition. Once you have achieved your objective the game isn't over because you are given another one as you would be in real life. Experienced players in the game get to make those decisions but I haven't got up to that level yet and I'm not sure how it works. It's Great Fun!!

This is a new concept in gaming, online only, and definitely the way forward. 256 players crammed on to one map is certainly different for me. The game is modelled along the lines of that PC gamers favourite - Battlefield. Bringing hardcore gaming to the PS3 is a stroke of genius. This is a much more mature and sophisticated game than COD. It takes longer to get into.

The down side is that the servers can be difficult to connect to and stay connected. It looks like they may be having some issues there. As I write this the whole game is unavailable. The respawning is slow and then you have a 20 second run back to the action.

4.0 out of 5 stars It like Marmite 18 Feb 2010
By Sleep
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Title says it all really, you either love it or hate it. I thought it was a great game and certainly tried to push the FPS genre on consoles further in terms of scale and player count. MAG basically has you make up part of a massive bunch of soldiers which are divided into squads and platoons and then basically fight against the enemy for objectives.
Graphics wise it is nothing stunning but you would not expect this to be the case with so many people in each match (256 players in domination). Sounds are pretty bland as well but this doesnt really detract from the whole experience.
The first time you log in you get to choose which PMC (Private Military Company) you work for (Valour; American/British (like the modern day military) Raven; Europe (slightly more high tech than today) and SVER; Russia (have a militia feel to them) Each has there own strengths and weaknesses Valour: jack of all trades master of none with regards to weapon damage and rate of fire, Raven: high rate of fire and lower damage and SVER high damage and lower rate of fire.
There are 4 game type modes with each giving a varying experience which stops the player becoming bored.Domination is the only mode to feature 256 players in one game.
There is also the chance to customize your character skill tree to either make him a sniper, LMG expert, medic or assault rifle expert etc. You never have enough points to unlock everything from every class so choose wisely, you can re spec you character if you made a bad choice but the more you do this the more points you need to earn to re spec your character next time so beware.
The biggest flaw with this game is not Zippers fault its the players. To play this game I would suggest that you buy a mic. it makes the experience so much more enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad 17 Feb 2010
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Although Reasonably fun at first, this game could certainly be improved. For anyone looking to buy a shooting game, other games like COD are much better.
Most people complain about the graphics on this game, but i don't think thats the real disappointment. I am most annoyed about the lack of things to do on this game. Firstly you can only play online, which at first sounds quite fun, but for those who haven't had much experience of shooting games, it's very dull because as soon as you step outside you get shot. I would recommend people looking to buy this game to buy it when its a bit cheaper.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As someone with lots of experience with fps since the very beginning and clan experience in pc fps I have to say this the best online fps I have played in recent times.

I took part in the beta and that was quite rough which resulted in me not buying the game at first. Recently got the game last month through pure luck. Feeling tired of the current crop of fps there has not been much in the way of fresh ideas or advancement. I was quite pleased and surprised to learn that the game has been very well made and tweaked to perfection after release. Gone are the silly issues in the beta and now we have possibly the most balanced set of abilities in any fps.

First aspect of the game to point out that its very tactical. Easily the most tactical fps to date. So good leadership and teamwork are key. This is not Call of Duty neither is it Bad Company or Killzone. Having said that dont be intimidated, there is alot to aid you from a special 3d map to the HUD displaying what you need to know. The objectives are always clear and the game types allow for different playstyles. Also Feel free to tell people you are new and many should help if you are confused. The community is quite nice. The game modes are brand new and not retreads of what already exist. This in a large part helps the game feel fresh as old game modes are rather tiring now and mostly designed for basic deathmatch fps not games like MAG.

The maps are huge but extremely well designed. There is alot of cover unlike more recent fps. You have room to sneak around as well as going run and gun or lone wolf. Guns are used better than other games as there is room for each ability. For example long range assault rifles with scopes have genuine use over red dot sight or snipers where in other games would be the snipers job.
