Who Said MAG was Dead? MAG Gets Incredible Deal After SOCOM 4 Reviews

MAG has quietly kept a amazing reputation by being a well supported PS3 game and a fun tactical shooter that makes PS3 owners happy. So how much better can this get? Well how about MAG for under $15 New!

The only people who think MAG is a dead community are those who aren't willing to try it themselves.

Yup the COD lemmings afraid to step out of the box. They are missing out.

captain-obvious2834d ago (Edited 2834d ago )

mag is a good game and i played it for hundreds of hours my self
but 2 things killed it for me

first of all

the HUUUUUUUGE updates
like in gigs sometimes

and 2 not enough players after 1 or 2 months

and now
i dont feel like playing it
because i know there is almost no one is playing it

i hate to say it but this is the truth

woolley2834d ago

I played today for the first time in like 2 months and I had no problem getting into any games. It seemed like there were more people playing now than when I left.

captain-obvious2834d ago

@ above
last time i played there was like a 100 players on each mod and alot of them on that DLC when it first came out

i haven't played it in a long time so i dont know

maybe this game is more popular in the US i dont know
maybe its a time line issue since im on the other side of the world
and when you guys are playing i'll be sleeping lol

You gotta be honest though, there are so many TEAMKILLERS

frjoethesecond2834d ago

No there aren't. If your stupid enough to walk in front of someone firing a gun the you deserve to die.

Beefstew4u2834d ago

I never once found team killing to be a problem. And I put like 150 hours into the game.

Motorola2834d ago

I dont understand why people shoot in a straight line at the spawn point INSIDE a building

NotSoSilentBob2834d ago

Only teamkillers are the people who want all the glory and out of all the times I have seen TKers around after the 2-3rd time they TK for the capture pts almost everyone votes them out.

Pillage052833d ago

people are usually more interested in kicking out the squad leader so they have a chance at being it rather than deal with teamkillers...

I just got this game a little while ago. What faction is for noobies again?

ForceCSW2834d ago

SVER is probably the most over-powered at this point, but that's viable to change because I just switched to VALOR ;)

Pixel_Pusher2834d ago


so stay clear of SVER until I get more experience, got it.

GunofthePatriots2834d ago

Don't go to Valor, whatever you do. They are horrible.

Ill always have a soft spot for them in my heart but that faction lacks brains

Pixel_Pusher2834d ago


Just joined Valor. :P

agentace2834d ago (Edited 2834d ago )

SVER is not overpowered, they are the best because they use teamwork the most.
I hated people complaining about SVER all the time, saying they have unfair advantages(which they dont). I`ve maxed out every PMC and if anything SVER has the disadvantage, there maps are really easy to attack, i could pretty much get through the entire SVER defensive line single handedly nearly every game, it really made me wonder how when i was SVER we could hold the 1st defensive position for the entire game and rarely ever lose a defence game.

If you look at all the videos of big team get togethers there always SVER.

Sorry for the rant but i really really hate the people who just complain about SVER endlessly and have never actually played as them because they hold such a grudge against them.

@Pixel, probably Valor because they have the best weapons by far and the easiest maps to defend yet they lose all the time.
When i left SVER i had about 150wins & 5losses then when i left Valor i had about 170wins & 100losses lol

nnotdead2834d ago


SVER was really overpowered at first. the maps where the main reason for this. now with maps being neutral it no longer matters. their weapons where also, and still are overpowered. SVER weapons are meant to be more powerful but less accurate than the other factions. though with your stats up and handles attached, them being less accurate mean a lot less. the other 2 factions can't do anything to make their guns more powerful. also the scopes for SVER are much better. they allow you to see a lot more of your surroundings, instead of focusing on just the 1 or 2 you can see with other factions scopes.

all that said, thats not even the biggest reason why SVER was/is thought to be over powered. early on when there was a clear advatage for SVER, a lot of the better players moved to SVER for the advantages. yes the better players used better team work, so on one hand you are correct.

i don't think SVER is as overpowered now. a lot of people use other factions because of the maps being neutral, and what advantage the SVER weapons have can be overcome with good play and teamwork.

eraursls842833d ago

SVER is way over powered, and their maps give them a huge advantage. I like Valor, overpowered but when I play with my clan we rarely lose

Domination is kinda dead, it takes me forever to get one game going. All the other modes I can get in quick.

Xilef2833d ago

I would buy MAG if it didn't cost 69,99 euros here in Finland at my local Gamestop. Thank god it's finally available on PSN I just have to get some more money to put on my account.

Sizzon2834d ago

MAG is awesome, gotta start playing it again.

GunofthePatriots2834d ago

MAG isnt dead but only a few thousand play it still.

frjoethesecond2834d ago

As long as there are 1000 regulars it wont die. That or the servers close.

Panthers2834d ago

Zipper doesnt close servers. Im pretty sure the Socom 1 servers are still up. I could be wrong tho.

nnotdead2834d ago

the Europe servers have been closed. US is where the only active MAG servers are right now. lag has killed a lot of games for me.

Capt-FuzzyPants2834d ago

My only complaint in this game is that there are only three maps for each game mode.

GunofthePatriots2834d ago

If there is a MAG 2, that is something that needs to change.

frjoethesecond2834d ago

Same as. Doesn't help that the smaller maps are sectioned off parts of the domination maps. I would pay €15 for more domination and acquisition maps. Better than shitty cod maps.

MAG 2 is what I want. I hope it's zippers next project.

Capt-FuzzyPants2834d ago

Yea MAG was a great idea and there should be more games like it. If they keep making games like this more games should follow its path and there could be epic games in the future.

nnotdead2834d ago

i'd rather wait for the next gen for another MAG. the more powerful tech could really help with making the game that much better.

frjoethesecond2834d ago

Not like we can't have another mag next gen aswell as this gen.

Redempteur2834d ago (Edited 2834d ago )

at least the maps are well designed

Ccreating huge maps like that is way harder to balance than the smallers map others shooters got

but a big dlc for more map is something everyone would be happy to have

NotSoSilentBob2834d ago

At least they updated it so you are not always defending one map and attacking the other 2. You will have to attack and defend each map.

smoothdude2834d ago

I played it, and I didn't like it. So I am now looking for a new multiplayer game to play.
