For those of you who were waiting for a great team-based FPS, then your prayers would have been answered when MAG and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 were released within weeks of each other. The two PS3 and Xbox titles are great games in their own right — but which is best?
Someone who has spent many hours with both games has given us an insight and found it interesting what he had said “MAG has 256 players, while BF2 has many less and graphics are better. So it’s kind of a trade off for graphics or many more players in my mind.” We just wonder if our readers agree with what this one gamer said?
Zavvi Blog has pitted the two together to look at the positives and negatives of both titles — studying visuals, audio, gameplay, value for money and then an overall look.
In the visuals department it is Battlefield Bad Company 2 that takes the win, but MAG pulls it back by taking the audio crown. Gameplay is where it matters most and MAG takes that win as well. Bad Company 2 will not give up without a fight and wins the value for money category — so we are left with a draw.
