I decided not to bother, just too big for such a short trial. Let us know what you think though

I played it for a couple of hours straight after download, and I liked it. The map was big but there are still boarders and no Vehicles but thats ok for the map I played on. It was an attack defend scnerio of three points, PVP I was hoping for PVE but never mind. Can you imagine 128 players vs 128 bots what a ride that would be. Graphics was ok not as polished as a top single player game but when you consider what they are trying to do it was better than I had expected, and it is still only a betta. I will try and get as many hours of play as I can (Bugger WORK but I have to do it it pays for my games and internet. ) But as I said befor I will considder getting this game if the subs are not to expensive.

Just found out. MAG is free to play "no online subs" Thats from the MAG site in the Betta forums info about the game. Might be a getter after all.

I played it too and have mixed feelings about it.

Gameplay is good, because objective missions automaticly create teamplay willingly or not.
Maps are big so playing as a sniper or heavy machine gun actualy has use.
Hit detection is off, so needs some work,spawn camping is possible, teamkilling is possible.

Graphics look dated, let me correct that, it looks ancient think counterstrike 1.
Battlefield 2 looks better and thats a 5 year old game.
I know , i know you play with 256 people at the same time so graphics must suck.
If you make everybody look like a square you can play with 1 million people at the same time but do you still want to play it?
Especially now that our senses have been spoiled by the looks and sound of MW2.

I think MAG is going to be a niche game with very few players.
In about 2 months time Badcompany 2 is coming out and it's going to obliterate MAG because DICE invented the genre and now have mastered it to perfection after 8 years of experience.

Comparison wich do you prefer be honest.

Got to be quick, so I will make it short

NO SERVER FILTER BY REGION

I suppose if they did they wouldn't get 256 players in one game.
Another reasonably good game spoiled by lag
Also the spawn points are a long way from the action - run, run, run some more, opps to far, dead shit, run, run etc etc

This game reminds me so much of ETQW but not as good

Based on what you guys are saying Beta or not I don't think this is a game for me. Would frustrate me to tears.

Look Im not a PS3fan boy as my previous post have shown but BF Bad Company 2 looks ok but still not that great. I think MAG might just be a better game not by much but a little better 64, 128 and 256 player and the graphics are not that bad. and I found the copntrols easy to use considering Im a 360 and PC player, Thats my say anyway.
Cheers and happy gaming all.
