As far as game play goes, Zipper Interactive have proven that they are experts, and MAG is a showcase example of this. However, the depth in strategy to this game, may also (in a weird way) turn out to be MAGs main flaw, as relying on 128 like minded, intelligent players to enter a game, is near impossible in this game. Instead, of slower paced, tactic based games. Read More

MAG is a massively multiplayer online first-person shooter that is unique in a variety of ways. A PS3 exclusive, MAG allows up to 256 players aligned with different private military corporations (PMCs) to battle each other at the same time across a global battlefield. Within this persistent game world players engage in campaign and mission play that elevates their character from the ranks of a lowly grunt, all the way up through the intricate command structure of the in-game officer corp. Along the way players players experience in-depth character customization, a robust leveling system and large-scale MMO shooter gameplay that makes MAG a game not to be missed by fans of the shooter genre.

Review Touting some of the biggest numbers of any shooter, MAG enlists up to 256 players into enormous warzones where every shot fired and bomb dropped is caused by a real person. It's impressive in theory, but does it deliver massive fun, or just major headaches?...MAG is purely an online multiplayer experience. There's no hacked-together single player campaign and no AI to pad out the ranks, just you and up to 255 other people. You begin by choosing which private military corporation to enlist in: Valor, SVER, or Raven. Each group has a different vibe, distinct weaponry, and unique maps to defend. It's a big commitment as you can't change factions until your character reaches level 60, and you can't create a separate character on the same PSN account. Having multiple characters would be nice, but the result of this strict arrangement is that players develop a greater sense of team pride that's just as strong as any fanboy war...MAG has four distinct modes of play. Suppression is stock team deathmatch. Sabotage requires a 32-player team to capture two points simultaneously and then proceed to a third. An acquisition game with 128 players involves attackers infiltrating a base and escaping with two of the defenders' experimental vehicles. And, finally, domination brings together 256 players, with the attackers given half an hour to disable infrastructure, capture internal positions, and inflict massive damage on enemy territory...With all it has going on, it should come as no surprise that MAG isn't particularly stunning from a visual perspective. The themed environments for each PMC do look fairly good, but animations are stiff and the framerate can get choppy at times. Music is used sparingly to highlight accomplishments on the battlefield, and the constant barrage of explosions gives you a clue as to just how many people are blindly chucking grenades. Amazingly, lag is very rare in the game, but there are glitchy bodies that get stuck upright or float ghost-like above the ground...MAG places a strong emphasis on teamwork with an intelligent command structure that brings order to battles of enormous scale. It could use more map variety, better balancing, and ways to decrease player downtime, but overall, it's a strong foundation for an ambitious new franchise.

Tom Chick , 1UP.com ...unlike anything else...
ZTGameDomain.com MAG is yet another fantastic addition to the PlayStation 3 library and one of the most addictive online experiences I have had in quite some time.
WonderwallWeb.com Creating M.A.G was certainly a risk on Sony's part, however credit where its due because this game is an instant classic and worthy of a place in everyone's Playstation 3.
