gameplay isn't what I thought it would be but a lot of the levels aren't unlocked yet. Remains to be seen if it was worth the purchase

Hum... but is it really 254 vs 254?

02-22-2010, 08:08 AM
the domination one is yeah, but you're broken up into squads of 8 with different objectives. the 2 you start out on are 64 players

Gameplay is OK. The maps are freaking huge and it's REALLY chaotic with how much is going on. Re-spawning takes forever though unless you're lucky enough to only be seriously wounded in which case a medic can come and save you before you bleed out. The battles are intense and there are no kill-cams so if you like to snipe you may actually get off a few rounds before someone comes up from behind you and shanks your ass.

Unlike COD, this is definitely a team event with strategy and planning. COD to me is like yeah, I'm on a team but I just wanna get 30 kills and I'll be happy and if your team gets the most kills you win, not in MAG. The people who have been playing longer are obviously higher ranking so they can be squad or platoon leaders and give orders. The experience you earn depends on how well you follow those orders and if you achieve your objectives.

It'll definitely take some getting used to in comparison to COD but I can see myself getting hooked on this game pretty quickly.

I had this pre-ordered, but ended up canceling. I hate games that are online only. When the multiplayer dies down the game is worthless. At least with a single player campaign you can keep playing it.

I'm looking forward to Battlefield: Bad Company 2. That's coming out next week and it's going to be freaking awesome.
