MAG Beta - Ambush Point Gameplay Movie
A support gunner picks off traffic going between control points.
To be fair, this guy is doing much better than the morons running in single file to their objectives. Being a lone wolf in the grass is a functional position, especially in large amounts. The ones that really fail at teamwork are the ones working toward the objective.
that just sucks... hes getting cheap kills! lol that guy near the end just walked right over him.. NOOB lol
I'd really love to see a vid of the actual teamwork that goes on like blowing a gate and driving an APC like a bat outa hell through enemy lines to blow and secure the AA guns. Then when the team starts paratroopin' in all hell breaks loose as the defenders are forced back to the cooling towers. that or a squad of guys sneaking back behind enemy lines to repair and hold the AA guns... which when ~40 people turn around and try to destroy you is a pretty huge deal. Or just... any of the other thousand things that happen that show off how awesome this game really is( i love how the guy below me rated the gameplay a 7). Im pretty sure the open beta is only up for another day but if it wasn't i'd tell everyone to get the game, get to lvl 10 and play a Dom match.
I just don't know about this game.. If the real game isn't a huge step up from the BETA I just don't know whether it's worth 60 bucks. Based on the beta this is what it scores IMO. Gfx - 6.5/10 (takes a hit in GFX cause of amount of players & objects) Gui - 3/10 (Clunky and poorly designed) Sound - 5/10 (Sound is meh, doesn't sound like I'm shooting something dangerous. Still think Bad Company has some of the best sound design for a FPS to date) Gameplay - 7/10 (Controls are solid, hit-boxes are good) Overall fun - 6.5/10 (Once again if the final product isn't more polished, this game is just not worth the 60 bucks)
It may look easy in this video, but it isnt, When you're NEAR the objective , you are going to stay in cover, run away from granades, heal your squad and support them. That's what they aren't showing in the videos lol Why? because there are lots of dudes trying to kill your squad and they can ambush.
Because it's just rambo gamespot players playing a beta. most of them aren't particularly good at these games and never play with the team in the vids. It's not like this is official mag developer vids
When I saw the title I was expecting a coordinated team to be waiting by the side of a road & getting the jump on another squad or APC, not just some guy hiding in the grass & shooting at passers-by. Why do none of the videos they uploaded today show off the whole 'teamwork' thing MAG's supposed to be about, rather than people trying to imitate Rambo?
