I doubt the integrity of IGN's latest coverage of MAG.

So yeah, they advertise a competition for MAG and all that jazz. Normal right? But what comes afterwards is straight-up confuddling.

 

Basically, they are supposed to 'hype' the game but instead they just tear into it. [url=http://uk.ps3.ign.com/articles/105/1058793p1.html]Click this.[/url] Basically, the first editor just says nothing good about it -- he's so goddamn negative. One of the other editors remarks about how he loved teamkilling. How the heck is this helping the competition your advertising?

 

Oh, BTW check out the videos -- the guy is terrible at playing the game.

They all say they didnt play for more than a half hour, I needed four hours of playing before I knew what this game whas about. If I think any further they didnt even get into domination because of the lvl 10 requirement.

In the short time I had with MAG, the controls felt tight and responsive and there was little no noticeable lag. If you're a fan of team killing, though, MAG seems like an excellent choice to scratch that itch. Knife kills are quick and easy (tapping R3), and spawn reload times are relatively short. I was never voted out during any of my matches, so that means either MAG players have thick skin, or they were just having trouble finding the 'vote to kick' option in the menus. Hey, it's either you or them, I always say.

Hilary Goldstein, IGN Editor in Chief
Playing MAG for a half hour really makes me appreciate Modern Warfare 2. I know this is just a beta, but this has hardly gotten me excited for this upcoming PS3 exclusive. My big concern is that this game is going to be a haven for campers. Since there are so few spawn points, no kill cam and often little idea of where your killer is located, it's going to be really easy for people to find good hiding spots and lay waste to people. And it takes so ***** long to run back to the action that it's going to become really disheartening for a lot of gamers to die so quickly and so often. I don't have high hopes for this one.

A teamkilling scrub who doesnt deserve to play a game like MAG... and a cod fan boy saying that MAG is for campers! when his bigging up cod... i think his got the two switched around :/ both shouldnt be allowed to reveiw a game...

I think they missed it really I mean the game really does suck and all the elements that they stated are true but come on the game sucks more because of the lack of decently developed and even maps.

 

This is a flagship game for the PS3 system and when you play it you think omg this is so 80's

 

Zipper have really missed the mark with this game and I hope they notice it in sales.

 

MAG is doomed to fail.

Its an accepted fact, that when you begin to exagerate your arguement, you know your side is weak and undefendable. Otherwise you would stick to the point using proven facts.

 

How many FPSs in the 80s had an online function with polygon based graphics were there...? Name them.

This ais a quote from another forum where someone was responding to someone elses criticism of MAG and compairing it to what they thought was a poor game (Bad Company 2). The sentiments are shared especially those on the map design.

 

 


Some Things? You mean just about everything. The concept is nice but this game will fail. Why call it 256 or even make it 256 if you never see 256. Hell, you are lucky to see 20 All you see is one platoon vs the other. The game visuals took a massive hit for the privilage of gloating that it holds so many players in a match.

Dice is a top notch company. Most of your issues are issues you need to take up with EA.

BC2 beta could have been 5 times worse then it is and still be 10 times better then the MAG beta. The Mag controls are robotic feeling and there is nothing fluid about it or the animations of it. It's like they cheated all laws of physics. They didn't use motion capture for anyting. It's like a bunch of robots running around. Nothing in the game feels natural really. You shoot a rocket launcher and it feels so off it's hard to describe.

It takes about 20 seconds to spawn (I don't care if it says 15). When you spawn you have to run half a mile back to your objective everytime. The weapons all feel the same. The sound effects are ridiculous. You shoot someone 800 yards away and you hear this generic splat like he's standing right next to you. The pixelation of the game is such that once you start shooting a guy 15 feet in front of you in the heat of battle he almost disappears. Just the color scheme makes stuff hard to see. That on top of the fact that it looks like an upscaled ps2 game doesn't help.

Hit detection is horrendous. I was up against a wall hidden and this guy walks by. He doesn't see me and i precisly aim onto his head and start shooting. Nothing is detecting out of the 20 bullets I put in him. He turns around and kills me some how.

The balance is a joke. Some maps, it doesn't matter if you are the best or worst group of players on earth you are gonna win no matter what. Then there are maps where objectives are taken in a matter of seconds because of the layout. So A and B is taken in the first minute of play before you can even orientate yourself and your stuck defending C which I must admit is slightly fun for such a subpar game.

Also the movement scheme is way out of wack. Some times I run at a slant for some reason because of the robot set up of the up and down/ left and right controls. It's just not fluid between the two.

BFBC2 feels like a well oiled machine even with it's flaws. MAG feels like garbage. Watch a grenande animation in MAG and tell me it looks like they put their heart into the game? Don't tell me all this lalalala will be fixed in 3 weeks. What you see in the MAG beta is what you will get. This beta was for network tweaks only and incidently the only thing they probably did right. The game f eels outdated and rushed.


 

If you want evidence play the game with an open mind and ask yourself why is this game like this?

you see how none of them have commented on the most outstanding factors. which is the leadership roles, the multi channel talking , the intergrated leadership commands and abilties . the use of sub objectives that play a HUGE differnce in a battle
the mortor, motor pool , Anti air craft battery, the sensor array and the impact it has during battle

if they had botherd to play the game anymore they would realise that the re spawn times are there to keep a more balanced amount of players out on the team and having to run miles to an objective is the fault of not having your bunker working, not having an apc in the correct place or not taking down the AAA . thats the point of it . its punishing you for not looking after you points. OIC have the abilty to speed up or slow down the spawn time . its there on purpose.

all they care about is how quickly you die and how easy it is to shoot people . as a squad leader i managed to take out about 40 people from doing nothing more than just using the map and airstrikes. this being a new type of fps with initally some complex rules just throws the typical modern warfare player out the window.
if there were no sub objectives and all you did was run around and try and capture one flag...god. could you could imagine the mess . to give the game a proper review would need the critic to get all the way up to OIC and understand how the whole game works...not gonna happen :(

Hilary Goldstein makes me lol for so many reasons.

 

1. Saying a game sucks cus of campers and then saying MW2 is awesome. (ironic statement)

2. not realizing that you can't even enter the enemy base because of mines so spawn camping isn't even a possibility

3. Being a CoD fanboy

4. Hilary is a girls name.

LOL

i feel sorry for zipper in way now.
its some how quite easy to predict that this game isnt going to do well in reviews becuase of the kinda crap thats written by IGN. its a complex game for new people , but then how on earth are you supposed to manage 256 people .
i am really amased by zippers creativity when you look at the aspects of how a domination game works (all aspects) and how well they have managed to put everything toghther .
i remember playing domination a month or so ago and looking at certain aspects like how it was highly unfair it is that the defending team is able to use artilery strikes form the word go , but the attacking team has take out the anti air before having privledge. but somehow the game is still very balanced and fair and that aspect adds to the realism. and i think they have excelled them selves in creating a fun game with such large numbers

played first game, i was confused, couldnt kill anyone, hated it.

played second game, got a few kills, enough to warrant a third game.

played third game, getting good now, working as a team, really enjoying myself.

played fourth game, love it, breath of fresh air in FPS terms

 

morale of my story?  you cant review a game without giving it a proper chance.

if i thought like that i would have missed out on an awsome shooter

IGN fail. but thats nothing new TBH. stopped using that site a long time ago.

The Infamous Kill Cam in Battlefield Bad Company, With Bad Company 2 coming out in March I think you will loose a lot of players in MAG as most of them will return to that IF they buy MAG at all.

 

CoD isn't a good game in my books but Battlefield Bad Company 2 is going to knock the socks off of MAG & CoD. The only thing BC2 doesn't have (I would love it to) is a command structure, it's not really like the Battlefield 2 and 2142 games that preceeded it. It's been dumbed down by the dev's for the Consol generation which is why I was excited by MAG unfortunatly there isn't enough to MAG to stop it from loosing out to the likes of Bad Company 2.

 

All games have their issues I just think MAG is being release with more than is necessary.
