MAG is the funnest online experience any PS3 owner could have. I gave it a 9 because is does have it's flaws. One small gripe I have is the graphics. MAG's graphics are not terrible, but they do not compare to those of Modern Warfare 2. That may be the only thing that Modern Warfare does better than MAG though. The domination mode in MAG boasts an extremely impressive 256 players in one match. Thats 128 players on each team fighting for control points. It's chaotic, fast paced, and if you find a team that can coordinate properly it equals a super fun time. I recommend MAG to anybody that is a PS3 owner, and loves FPS'.

I hate people that write a game off it it is not call of duty, or it isn't rated M. They disgust me. I hope this reveiw will make them think twice about hating MAG.
I myself was surprised by the Teen rating, but, adding pointless things like gore would simply take away from the experience. While not excelling at graphics, it is not totally unexpected. 256 players, who needs amazing graphics anyway?
What truly got me hooked on MAG was one word. VARIETY. After a while i got sick of CoD because i only had the option of killing people. In MAG, you can heal your fallen comrades, or fix up vehicles or bunkers or motor pools, or doors, or AAA guns, or... you get the point. I myself like being a medic. Now don't think repairing or healing won't get you points. Reviving one downed ally gives experience equal to TWO kills. repairing does the same, but takes much longer.
one of the few downsides was, the maps. They are excellent, but there are simply too few. When you get to the point where you unlock Domination, there are lots of different areas your squad can go and get objectives, though. Maybe Zipper will put some DLC for new maps... They better...
When i first head of this i was pysched, when i baught it a few nights after it came out it was great the controls are a little weird and to be honest the graphics were dummed down a little bit but when i plugged it into my 50"had tv with HD my worries went away. Learning different aspects in the game takes time but it is very much worth learning. Youll have fun and also be surprised about how tactical this game is the objectives and the great leveling system. Honestly 256 players online littleraly is the closest thing youll ever feel to a war i say get this game and when you choose a faction pick raven they have great weapons and are a fun and cool faction. Iv been playing it nonstop since it came out it will be slow at first but after an hour youll be addicted.
