MAG could have turned out to be a fantastic tactical shooter. It consists of plenty of elements to ensure that it can be played by a group of players who have some sort of common sense. However the reality is that the majority of PS3 online gamers would rather spend their times laying hidden in a game of Domination, rather than attempting to work as a team to complete the objectives.
Also, without any true single player tutorial or training mode, it means that any casual gamer who will purchase the game, will come online and compete without any knowledge of how a game of this type should be played. If all Zipper ever wanted was to created a 256 player game, then they have succeeded.
