I've heard joining games as a new player now isn't fun.
"Oh look a level 1." *Everyone votekicks you*
So YMMV


This is probably because MAG, from what I gather, isn't a free-for-all like most online shooters. You're expected to work together toward objectives, obey your squad leader, and not wander off on your own. The experienced players probably assume level 1 player = n00b who doesn't get this, just because they've seen so many newcomers with the COD mentality.

Now, if a bunch of CAGs get this and start out as new players, it might be easier to find a team that'll accept you.

Of course the game becomes instantly worthless when they shut down the servers, which will happen eventually. I tend to avoid online-only games for that reason. But for just a buck, you'll probably get your money's worth.

Are you at a huge disadvantage if just starting out? Also, are their vehicles like in Battlefield?

If anyone is playing this game for the first time, allow an hour to download and install all the updates before you start playing, no joke.

Played MAG for over 800 hours, was an awesome game. Maybe its time to log back in again. If anyone wants to play send me a friend invite to HisSlyness.

Had a lot of fun with this game in the ~200 hours it took to platinum. The quality has dipped in the past couple years for obvious reasons (rip zipper) but it's still a great game and well worth 99 cents lol.


Last good game zipper made was Socom II. Was about time they subsided. :/

Slant 6 made a much better Socom game (Confrontation) than they have.

Totally going to be picking one up at the store. Even if servers go down soon, which is all speculation at this point.. it's still worth it for 0.99.

so I know it's just $1, but is it worth it if you don't have friends/don't like talking to strangers? I've heard a lot of people will boot you without a mic

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

From my experience everytime there is a vote to kick some one it never goes through people are focused on all the action to waste their time with one player.

I've had MAG for 3 years and the community is not as very active as it was back then for example my fav. Game mode was Domination because it was the one that had 256 players go at it but now theres only like 90 people playing that mode. Theres two game modes that still have a lot of players. Last night there were around 800 players playing MAG.

thanks op. couldn't find the game but picked up and Watchmen: End is Nigh with the Director's Cut Blu-Ray for $5. The two posters were missing but the box and instructions were in decent shape. Wasn't a huge fan of the film, seeing as how they had to cut out so much from the source material, but trying out the game at that price seemed too good to pass up.

Thanks. I'll use this to get the 50% trade bump (and a game I'll actually play, unlike Kinect Adventures).

You are at a disadvantage, but not a huge one. Learning the maps is key to becoming good at the game.

There are vehicles in some of the modes.

Thanks OP! Not all that into online-only multiplayer games, but I couldn't resist grabbing one to check out for $1 (complete with case and manual).

$5 too much, and my guess is that the severs won't be up much longer since all of Zipper's other games had their servers axed. Just get BF3 instead.

But if the server goes down, then this game is totally unplayable. It's MP only.

I picked up a copy as well. Looks almost brand new, if not for the Gamestop stickers on the case.

Thanks for the heads up, OP. Picked mine up today (or, rather, my wife picked it up for me).
