    It's hard to point out what this game is lacking, I guess I can call it the "wow" factor. It takes far too many bullets to kill one enemy, even with different guns.Also it taks too long to respawn(15-20) and I THINK the enemy can delay spawns if they do something, which I find lame and makes the overall experience less fun. The in-game graphics are good, better than I expected and it is suprisingly NOT laggy. The game has serious potential but they(The developers) did NOT covered the basic structure which makes a good FPS. The gun textures however are beyond ugly and hopefully they will update stuff before the release on the 26th of this month.

    It's simple suff they can do to fix this title but seeing how it is releasing the 26th of this month, I doubt they will. Also seeing how this game will be released the same day as Mass Effect 2, so sells wont be strong either.

    well...so far, it's kinda fun. I see a number of issues that could use attention...but once 'Domination' was unlocked, the game's potential seemed to be showing off. Sadly...I think the overwhelming size is making for an underwhelming game.

    I like this game more than MW2 now...
    I like playing FPS that have real objectives, I got bored playing MW2 with its laggy matches, people camping, and run & gun gameplay.

    To all of you that feel it is nessacery to compare MAG side by side with MW2, please don't. They are two completly different experiences with both offering things that the other doesn't. I hope when the game does come out, people don't say it's bad because it doesn't live up to MODEREN WARFARE's HYPE.

    I only played it one day. Have yet to play some more. I don't hate it, but when you have Modern Warfare 2 out there, this game lacks personality and spunk in comparison. It's a bit on the bland side. It' fun because it's online and it's a large multiplayer team . Besides that, I don't feel anything for it.

    It feels like this is a tech demo for some game in the future that actually will rock.

    I played it for a good hour before I gave up on it. I m always playing FPS s in one way or another, and play MW2 and Halo 3 a good bit, but I can't get used to the fact that there is health that doesn't regenerate in M.A.G. If you go face to face with a person, one of you will die, and after that, if someone else so much as blows on you, you're going to die due to lack of health. Then you get to run a mile to do it all over again due to the spawn points. Then on top of it all, the game encourages camping due to these two problems. I know it s just a beta, but it has a ways to go when compared to other top of the line FPS s.

    Graphics Look a little meh compared to the other PS3 titles but it looks like fun still, hectic and I'll probably get a headache wanna quit but that's multiplayer games, that would happen anyway. And I wouldn't want to go against that guy online that was ridiculous.

    WOW i love this game been playing the Beta since it released and dont have many real complaints. I have rarely experienced lag and when i do its short lag that doesn't effect me much. Knifing is a bit annoying but thats because im used to the gay COD knifing in which you launch directly at the guy you need to aim well to get a good knife kill. You also need to work together a lot more unlike COD where you have a bunch of tools that just care about experience, you get a lot more experience working with your team then you get just killing people and camping.

    Speaking of camping anyone complaining about campers WHO CARES they aren't gonna do much its just hurting them because if your by your squad leader, platoon leader, or commander you get double exp if you want to camp go ahead your getting a lot less exp. K/D ratio doesn't control this game like in COD strategy does and being a good listener does. i give it a 8/10 (The beta) and i expect the game to be even better due to more features.

    I was in the private beta and I didn't like it. The fact that there are over 250 players online doesn't really make much of an impression and doesn't affect the individual players. No one person can affect the outcome of the game. Even groups of friends can barely do anything to win.

    The game still has some problems with balancing the different factions that I was hoping it would solve. I'm going to wait and see on this game.

    I have been waiting for this game for so long. And considering that it is a multiplayer only game, I figured there would be tones of maps. There are 10..... For each faction you play there are a total of 10 maps. I understand that 3 of them are huge maps, but still. All the maps of one faction basically all look the same. Valor is located in Alaska yet there is no snow level. Sorry, but for the amount of content I am getting, it is not worth $60, I'll wait for a price drop.

    It's alright. For me, I don't know if it's the frame rate or if it was just lag, but it doesn't run very smooth for me. But my main problem with it is that it's ugly. I know graphics aren't everything and that they're trying to get a gigantic amount of players on, but still, it looks ugly to me.

    Take MAGs huge maps and it's large amount of players, add Modern Warfare 2 controls and game play, put in BF: Bad Company's vehicles and destroyable buildings, then take Brinks S.M.A.R.T. movement thing, stir like crazy and bake at 400 degrees... BAM! Perfect shooter!

    The problem is exactly this, MAG is not MW2. And every time a new player comes in to play the BETA they rush in kill one guy if not none and them fall to the ground dead. MAG actually makes sense, you play as a team you get rewarded, while in MW2 you play as a one man unstoppable killing machine and oh how you get rewarded for that... MAG involves being good at the game, MW2 everyone is good at. You may not find this to your liking but CoD games are the newb FPSs of all time.

    I said I'd try it again and I did.

    ... and it left an even worse impression then last time.
    (:Just to give you an idea of the level of fun I had with this game. [if you want] After I lost my net connection on wednesday I had to do something else. So, I sarted to play Metroid Prime 3. And didn't want to stop when the interent came back up. MP3>MAG?)

    SO, specifices:
    1st- Lag in Dominiation mode (feirce) compared to the private(r) Beta I tried before. = bad
    level-up ot get to different game types = good
    Only the same (3) maps I playable as last time? [I guess they'll release more with the full game] = bad
    what else was good... ah... OH! They fixed the player options so they save your senstivity (now) and mic volume control. = good
    Still has Bt mic problems (srsly wtf?) = bad
    They increade the level cap = good...
    Skill/Equipment tree still fubar (and increased cost of some items) = bad!
    Equipment selection is more lenient = (sorta) good
    Limited and (very) lacking character arsenal = bad

    I can't really think of anymore good things right now, so... kind'a a pass, for me.

    I think this game is solid. You really get the feeling of teamwork and it awards you for being a team player. Some animations are ugly but nothing to much. Im not a fan of shooting have a clip to kill a guy but i got use to this game style very quick

    Hmmm.... I get what you guys are saying about the 3D tvs and I personally say that in most of it I do agree, But for some reason [and this is sort of a guilt Pleasure] I find it super attracting to go see some of those 3D movies cuz its like playing with a new toy, so I wouldn't really mind seeing some 3d games out there in the not so far future.
    I'm pretty open to the new possibilities, specially in Tech but I will kill anyone that thinks its a good idea to make link have a voice again.

    Excuuuuuuuuuse me, Developers
