MAG stands simply for Massive Action Game and, while that is this particular title's biggest asset, it's also its biggest flaw: its magnitude is matched by a steep learning curve. A much more thorough tutorial is needed, the weapons locker needs more variety and it graphically resembles a PS3 launch title.
Aside from those issues, the game thrives and stumbles based on the community. At its best, the game delivers on its promise of frantic shooter action on a massive scale. If you can get yourself in a squad with some like-minded teammates serving under a commander who can genuinely inspire, MAG is a truly great online experience.
