IGN: MAG: Interdiction Impressions

The first premium downloadable content for Zipper's massively-multiplayer shooter, MAG, was released a couple days ago. The content pack, Interdiction, brings with it a new game type with the same name, and three new maps to house it.

The story is too old to be commented.

Best game I own among 35 or so games.
No other games I have keep me playing six+ months down the road with hundreds of hours in.

Note to all players. Having a mic makes the game twice as fun. I shit you not

RememberThe3572948d ago

Having a mic makes the game completely different. The game is so built off of team work that not having a mic really hinders the experience.


That is why you need a Clan or friends to play with Mics.

Making tactics and playing as a real team with your 7 Partners in the Squad, you will notice MAG is one of the best Tactical Shooter Online in the Generation, period.

Or everybody should just get a bloody mic.
I know some people don't want to :'( but they really don't have a good reason why.
I never had interest in mics before this game. It's actually the only game I use my mic for.
This game without a mic is not fun to such a degree that I just wouldn't play it.

Probably why the player numbers are so low. Thousands of people bought it, played micless, then got irritated and bored and left.

I agree, this is probably the best Online shooter ive played period. Imo of course. And yes, if you play this game then have a headset PLZ!

Sadly more and more annoying kids are migrating to MAG... it wouldnt be as bad if they didnt use their mics. Had to kick 3 of them today who just whined and moaned all the time and just kept on cussing like no tomorrow before they disappeared.

I also made a mistake of letting a kid join the clan... he wouldnt STFU so i kicked him out and blocked him from my friends list. He was playing MW2, which he says is superior since he couldnt kill anybody in MAG, before the block.

You'll really hear them... those people that get pissed off because they die too much or cant hit crap in MAG... learn to aim and fire burst.

I'm looking for more SVER [AMF] clanmates. We only require that you always have a medkit and resuscitation ability. Kill as much as possible. Dont talk too much if you're annoying but asking questions or asking for a break to take a piss or respec is fine. Mic or no mic is fine.

If you've played BF2 on PC then you'll know what to expect here. A little MAG twist and with 128 players instead of 64 but that game mode that so many lost hours in on BF2 is now on MAG and more modes to come in the future.

Top notch FPS online experience.

Not sure why you're down to 1 bubble or why you've got so many disagrees, but your comment seemed spot on to me, so have a bubble, Chubear. MAG rocks. New mode, new maps, definitely got to get this DLC!

Szarky2948d ago

Hmmm... been thinking about switching over from BF:BC2 to something fresh. Can't decided between MAG or Uncharted 2 multiplayer. Totally different experiences I know. Don't know which one to choose...

Sick of the maps in BC2. No love from EA/DICE.

Dramscus2948d ago

I personally didn't enjoy uncharted 2 multiplayer much after two or three weeks.
That is just me though as I'm aware that many people play it quite a bit.

RememberThe3572948d ago

It took me a while to get into because it is rather unpolished. But the game is damn good and when you get on a team that actually plays as a team there is really nothing like it.

WildArmed2948d ago

Uncharted 2 had an amazing MP (imo),
but like you said It didn't have the addiction that MAG has :D
I play mag every day or 2.
Uncharted 2, I popped it in yesterday after 3 months.
Still love the MP, but the MP isn't as rewarding as other MP games are.

Either way, You can't go wrong!

FanboyPunisher2948d ago

BF2 on PC still feels better than Mag or even Joint Operations for that scale.
MAG is an excellent game for a console, but it does feel somewhat limited, im not trying to bash. I'm just grounded playing games on all platforms for years now.

ThanatosDMC2948d ago

It's kind of a bad idea to write that when this is a MAG article. For someone who loved BF2 like me, im surprised you dont see how great MAG is. You also brought the PC in this... oh well. Have an agree.

ExPresident2948d ago

MAG is an amazing gaming experience online. It truly is a team game where the lone wolf won't win you a game, work together or fail together.

I've had a blast playing MAG and will continue to do so. Interdiction is another step in a great direction for MAG and has been a blast. Rock on Zipper.
