What do y'all think of MAG?
 
Playing Dead Space, it's pretty cool, but it kinda stresses me out.

MAG... is a love or hate kind of game. It's innovative in some ways, but in the end it's not quite as good as COD or Battlefield. The game has it's moments though, especially when you play your first 256 player battle... My jaw dropped at the sheer number of guys running across the field. Wave after wave of paratroopers soaring the sky...........  with no lag whatsoever.

It's more PC style than console style. 
In that you can't just sprint everywhere and keep your finger on the trigger else you will just die.

I very much enjoyed the beta especially when you had a squad who knows what they're doing and works as a team.

i thought the beta wasn't bad. the huge scale battles were really cool. i'm way more interested now that it's supposedly been much more improved because of patches

If you're impressed with MAG, you'll shit bricks with Battlefield 3.

It was fun for a week or so, but it really didn't have anything special to it besides the player count.

@KaosAngel: Do people actually play as a team in PC Battlefield games?

@X19: Hell yeah, people don't care about K/D ratios...and if the Vietnam stats show anything, it proves PC gamers play as a team.

Shame the community is bound to be full of trolls and when lag hits, and it's impossible for it not to, it really hits hard.

Personally I love it. The fact that you CANNOT win on your own is a huge bonus. If you play with a good team of players it can give you the best gaming moments you've had in a while

I got MAG for my birthday in March...It is still in the plastic wrap.

MAG seems pretty cool... But I'll just wait for Battlefield 3.
