MAG: A PS3 Video Game Review

With all of the shooter games out these days, it is hard to decide which one is right for you. Find out if MAG (for the PS3) is up your alley!

MAG was developed by Zipper Studios and released in North America on January 26th, 2020; so clearly it has been out for a few months now. The game is rated "T" for "Teen," so it isn't for everyone, however those fortunate enough to purchase the game, have been able to experience action packed battles; this is only made sweeter by being able to mingle with friends (provided that you have a headset). Also, there have been several patches released and even some FREE downloadable content (available to download on the Playstation Network Store) since its release. However what has it got that other games don't? Better yet, what doesn't it have that other games do? Well, let's start with the "pros" shall we?

First off, as I stated earlier, the game features the groundbreaking ability to have 256 players in one game at the same time. This can be achieved through domination (one of the game's four modes which also include sabotage, acquisition, and suppression, yet there is also a mode called directives however that essentially just picks one of the three main modes at random). Domination is the largest of the game modes, while acquisition is next-up allowing 128 players in a match (64vs64), followed by sabotage (32vs32) so if you don't like larger games and would prefer something smaller, then you're covered; suppression simply acts like a (T)eam (D)eath (M)atch, except your facing people from your own faction and not from another. This brings me to the next unique aspect of the game (factions). There are three different types of soldiers (or factions) which you can choose from: S.V.E.R, Raven, and Valor. Each of these factions has their own unique qualities. For example, Raven has the most advanced weapons/technology, S.V.E.R. has layouts and tactics that offer the best defense, and Valor is a balance (making it the "best of both worlds" yet with a curve). This adds a bit onto the re-playability factor of the game, as you can ultimately switch amongst factions and tryout which one you like best (however there is a catch to this which I will explain later).

Another plus for the game is that it takes some ( R )ole (P)laying (G)ame elements with an interesting way of leveling up your soldier. Each time you level up (the max level being 60) you earn skill points, which will allow you to upgrade or add parts to your weapons, apply new gadgets, and add new attributes to your soldier (such as increased health and endurance). You can mix-and-match here and there to suit your own style of gameplay. For example, if you into being a sniper, medic/mechanic (classified as field support), rapid assault, commando, or a little bit of everything, you can! Not to mention that there is a decent array of weapons for you to try out/use including different types of machine guns, assault rifles, and sniper rifles (just to name a few of the types). Finally, MAG offers a feature that requires you to act as a leader giving out orders to various troops. There are three kinds of leader in this game. The first is called a squad leader in which you are in control of your squad (which consists of 8 players) and you can set objectives and send out air-strikes and so on. Might I add, that there are 4 squads within a platoon, and 4 platoons within an entire attack-force (if you are playing the domination game mode). Next up is the platoon leader, who doesn't set objectives, but can give game-changing commands such as cluster-bomb sweeps, and the ability to wipe out an enemy bunker (just to name a couple). Finally, you have the (O)fficer (I)n ( C )harge which you would only encounter in the domination game mode. This person usually has to be around the level 60 mark, is in charge of a whole attack-force (128 soldiers), and has the ability to jam enemy sensors and communications, perform a satellite sweep, or blockade enemy forces (again, just to name a few). I could go on and on describing how leadership abilities and points work, however I can honestly say, that if you're really interested, the best way to learn about the leadership aspect is to simply pick up the game and play it for yourself. Anyway, you can see, there is a lot of potential for hours upon hours of enjoyment with this game. Now let's look into some of the negative aspects/cons to the game itself.

I'll start small by pointing out that this game has no single-player campaign, which doesn't bother some people (myself included), however for others, it could pose a problem. Yet I'm sure it takes a lot just to ensure that the game could hold/host 256 players in a single server/room, so I suppose that should at least make up for having no single-player campaign, right? Speaking of sacrifices, MAG also has graphical limitations (and one can only assume, again, because it takes a lot in this day and age to have 256 players in a room). The graphics do seem a wee bit outdated (almost PS2 quality), however one can argue that some of the greatest re-playable games of all time have terrible graphics (by today's standards); games such as Super Mario Brothers 3 for the Nintendo,The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for the Nintendo 64, or even Pong. Though I am not comparing MAG to these timeless classics as a classic itself, I'm merely stating that graphics aren't necessarily what make a game great, fun, or re-playable. So it may not look as great as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, but if you can get past some slightly outdated graphics, then this shouldn't really be an issue for you.

I mentioned earlier that there was a catch to switching among the three factions in-game, and this is because you cannot switch (without risking losing your statistics, ribbons, medals, and leadership points) until you have reached level 60 (thus allowing you to enter "Vet mode"). Once you've reached Vet mode, you can switch among factions as many times as you like while keeping all of your statistics and awards and such, and you get a +10% experience bonus while leveling up, however once you've switched, you start back at level 1 again. Once more, this is not that big of a problem to some people, however to others this can seem to be a bit of a bother (which is understandable). I should also mention that there aren't as may levels to play upon as other shooter games, however we've already received one batch of Free DLC, one can only hope that they'll offer more DLC which will include new level designs/layouts. Regardless, if you want a shooter with instant variety at the palm of your fingers, then this one isn't for you. The last negative aspect I feel I should mention is that if you aren't playing with a group of friends, the fun factor tends to drop significantly. Not everyone on the PSN (Playstation Network) has a microphone or a Bluetooth headset, and therefore, if you're stuck with a squad that doesn't communicate, you can find yourself often going nowhere and losing very quickly. On the other hand, if you have a squad full of your friends or people who know what they're doing and actually communicate with one another, then win or lose, as long as you're having fun with those individuals and the game itself, then you'll get the most out of what you've paid for.

Alright, so I've been through both the pros and the cons of the game, so now allow me to show you all how I would rate the most important aspects of the game:

Graphics: 3.5/5.0

Sound: 4.5/5.0

Online (Multiplayer): 5.0/5.0

Fun Factor: 4.0/5.0

Re-playability: 4.0/5.0

Overall: 4.2/5.0

So there you have it, I've given you an in-depth look at the recently released first-person shooter, MAG, for the Playstation 3. Some people call it a generic shooter, however, what other game gives you the opportunity to faceoff with 255 other individuals (plus offer a few neat extras in the process)? As for what I think, the verdict is in, as I give it a little over four stars out of five, so clearly it isn't too shabby, but still has room for improvement. Oh, I forgot to mention, like most online-heavy games (especially shooters) there is generally a lot of foul language involved coming from the other players. So if you're wondering whether or not to purchase this for your child, I would recommend that you steer clear of this one (unless you feel they are mature enough), because you can't put a rating on the always unpredictable human tongue. Be sure to check in later, as I will surely have more reviews like this one headed your way. Thanks for your time and for reading my review and as always, if you like what you've read, then by all means comment or become a fan/follower!
