Showing 1-10 of 85
An unique shooter that gives more than takes.

Summary: 7.75 MAG is an action based cooperative shooter with a twist that can come off as risky. It is completely set up for multiplayer. The closest it comes to single player is a brief solo tutorial. So how does a game that relies on an open map with bare-bones objectives? Player power. Not a bullet fly's or a rocket bursts without a player behind it.
Summary: I think this is a decent game, not Modern Warfare 2 but is just as fun. I keep hearing about the graphics being bad so I was hesitant on buying it. Played it at my cousins before I bought it and was amazed with everyone's bad reviews. If you have a cruddy TV then that's why it looks like junk. I think the graphics are good.
Pros: All out war!!
Cons: Map is pretty bad and get kicked off the network sometimes
Summary: This game would be closer to perfect if it weren't for it's ridiculous re-spawn count down clock which keeps you from the action before allowing you back into a map where you have to sprint for 2 minutes before reaching the fight. Result, you waist most of each 20 minute fight session running and dying instead of fighting and killing. For some however, The time you spend in intense battle may make up for that problem. My suggestion to MAG Makers?
Summary: If your on the fence about buying this game you will definitely be glad that you did buy it as its one of the best shooters I've played. Make sure to give it 10 lvls as it takes some getting use to on how to play it, but once your know then you wont stop playing it.
Summary: First off I've never played COD MW2 and frankly am tired of the endless comparo's with it. This game requires time to truly appreciate and I would recommend leveling up to at least an 8 or above before passing judgement. Once you start upgrading your character the game starts to slow down a bit mentally and you can really dive into the tactics.
Pros: Team Based Play, Huge Maps, Gradual Upgrades
Cons: Finding consistent united squads, lots of no mic players, long respawn times
Summary: Honestly, there is absolutely NOTHING like this game out there on any platform. Never before has a video game captured the essence of war like MAG does. 8 maps (could use a few more, and I'm sure we will get some in the future) and they're huge and well constructed. You get split up in 8 person squads; with someone as the squadleader; and someone as the platoon leader. Here's where it gets amazing..
Pros: No lag! The squad mechanics; hit physics are dead on; weapons are responsive; good customization options for characters
Cons: spawn times can be gut wrenching; people without mics are useless when this game is all about teamwork
Summary: Being a long time fan of Zipper Interactive (mainly from SOCOM) I had to get this game. I like playing with 256 people at the same time, although you still only see about half of that due to the different squads being in different locations within the same map. It's nice to be able to level up and unlock the abilities to call in air strikes and other strategic maneuvers.
Pros: Map size, amount of players, ability to pick a specialty (sniper, field support, etc.)
Summary: I just wanted to say that all the people who say this game sucks doesnt even know what they are talking about. For example, yes I love Call of Duty but its so unrealistic. All the people who hate MAG like COD because ALL players have Auto-Aim Assist on. So they think they are super pro. But they arent. You just have Auto Aim on. But in MAG everything is realistic. The guns, armors, skills, and maps. And they dont have Auto Aim Assist setting in it.
