Im so jealous. wish i had a ps3 now. looks waayyyy more fun than MW2. Finally a military game thats fun and not overly realistic
Hmm, the graphics aren't the good. what would make it good is the 256 players. Cant judge anything until i try it myself
shoelaces-4-all i unfortunatly didnt play frontline, or mabee thats not very unfortunate haha, but for me, its simply the character animations, if those can become fluid, ill get the game 4 sure.
legosora73, its made by SCEA, sony computer entertainment lol. thats pretty much the reason bru haha. ares360, i sure hope it does. but for me, it wasnt textures, or enviornments, it was just the characters themself, they allmost looked like robots. its jus my opinion though lol. i do have some descently high hopes though, but im still not done with uncharted 2 or resistance 2 getting my 10000 kills. which by the way, is a pain in the ars to get haha
Pretty addicting game. Though some teams are favored in categories. Raven has accuracy and fire rate but very weak stopping power. SEVR may seem an unlikely chose but don't underestimate them, there guns are insanely strong, the pistol can kill in under 4 shots. Valor is between with better accuracy than SEVR but stronger stopping power than Raven. Though some maps have flaws like SEVR's home base. It's nearly impenetrable. By that I mean trying to set both explosives and then go to point C for another one in 20 minutes is brutal. Why? Because the rusted city houses so many high walls and ledges for SEVR to pin you down even since the objectives are on open roof tops.
Anyway, we're all saying 'wow, 256 players' and yes it's an amazing feat, but it will need to deliver in other respects too. Resistance 2 had 60 players.. That didn't make it better than modern warfare. This isn't one to pre-order in my opinion.
Wow, I was surprised at how quickly (as in lag free) you could pop a guy at such a distance. Some games wouldn't be able to do that locally.
@ares360 Completely agreed. Extremely impressive for online play. Take WoW's Battlegrounds, 40v40, it often became a lagfest from hell, stuttery framerate, could barely move much less fight properly (yes, had to use a WoW comparison cause I haven't played MW2.) Either way, I'm amazed at how smooth MAG operates with so many player and effects everywhere. I'm definitely getting this now. And people are judging it because they have no concept of what beta stage means.
@ truthbetold101 yeah I agree but honestly making so many avatars for each team can be grueling there are already 24 total with 3 voice options totaling for 72 combinations. The recent looks from Gameinformer look more defined and impressive.
Why are people judging these graphics. This is an online beta plus no lag and this is 256 people not 18 like in MW2 which by the way can have lag. Plus a solid frame rate is impressive for a game that involves airstrikes, driven vehicles, SAM site missiles, paratroopers, oh yeah lets not forget about the 200+ infantry. C'mon this looks like an 8.5 and thats superb for an online only game even an 8 is good. Plus I like that squad is essential. You can't get anything done going lone wolf like in mW2 sorry Rambo fans.
@ legosora73 sorry dude but 360 servers can't take this many players they tried with 64 on Frontlines and it was a laggy flop. Even on Bad Company lag was apparent and only with 24 players maybe if Microsoft can get a solid 32 player online shooter going with no lag then maybe.
i dont know about this one...im thinking this may flop...i usually get a good feel from the trailers and this isn't looking like anything special.. in the 7.5 range....
@truthbetold101 yeah dude, i agree, i was super excited for this game, and I do favour gameplay over graphics but visual detail and animations add so much to the gameplay and overall experience. You cant ignore the excitement of playing in a really smooth and visually appealing game that also has good gameplay. Im afraid itll end up kind of like Frontlines which relied heavily on high player count and did poorly with visuals and gameplay. It was an ok rental but I wouldnt buy it. Anybody play the closed beta? Please tell me im wrong, I want this game to be good.
modern warfare 2.5 haha looks decent ill merc some b***** on it, they do have bland animations and hold the guns weird though
this game has 256 players! you'd think that the people would work in squads but all i see is a buch of people doing things different ways. if the game cant find a way to make you work together then its not doing its job.
goddammit!! it kills me how they hold their equipment so weirdly, whether it be the rifles or grenades its just soooo weird. i just might have to get used to it though cuz the gameplay looks narsty
now someone, please respond 2 this, tell me, i think everything on this game looks good xcept for one thing.... and thats the character animations, there just... to bland,... i mean, compare it to resistance 2, mw2, kz2, even halo, the animations jus lok=ok flat out boring and bland. does anyone else agree with that?
this is freaking awesome!!! i want to get it now! but how do we know their are no bugs lik sony's other catastrophes?
To all whom say "much rather have BF2 beta". I would gladly trade you any day. That game is such garb. Any game that gives you 2 seconds of a black screen when you scope in... yeah not worth anyones time.
The grenade throwing animation looks better than it used to, but it still looks akward-- take from halo and COD throw them fast and overhand plz
@andrewass121, give it a rest, i own a PS3 but im not going around saying PS3 is better than 360, give it a rest you fan-boy
