You may think it strange that PS3 Attitude is reviewing MAG now. After all – wasn’t this game released back in January? Old hat surely.
Well, as we mentioned in our (p)review (or Review part 1, if you will) a few weeks ago, MAG is an ever evolving game.

This will be no five hour ‘7 out of 10’ review – this will be the combined thoughts of Team Attitude who have dedicated a vast amount of time to what surely must be one of the great online games.

You may not have realised it, but some time last week four PS3 games lost their online functionality forever. These cuts are in addition to a further six games that lost their online capabilities in February. Interestingly two of these games have only been on the market for just over a year.
