What you do first is practically from muscle memory: Sprint across open ground and up the stairs to an elevated sniper's perch, where you instantly drop down and begin sighting down your scope. If you're the camping type, this is standard operating procedure for an online match in a first-person shooter (FPS).
You find your position, you watch for the alleys and windows where enemies tend to appear, and you wait for one or more suckers to die for your personal cause-racking up a kill count worthy of leaderboards and other accolades. In MAG, or Massive Action Game, a PlayStation 3-–exclusive shooter, you may be tempted to follow the camping procedures. And why wouldn't you?
The graphics and gameplay mechanics will feel familiar to anyone who's killed or been killed in Modern Warfare 2, Halo or any number of multiplayer-centric titles. But there is a major difference between MAG and other games: Instead of hosting an eight- to 12-person fight, MAG has the means to provide players with a 200- to 256- player battle.
