As being a fan of Zipper since Socom2 I am slightly unsettled about this article. Zipper has always given, the most quality third person shooter titles I have yet to play. Given this is there first next gen console title I am highly dissatisfied with there choice of lack of camera perspectives. They should have at least included an over the shoulder view or both third and over the shoulder views.
I believe they might have set there title to be an FPS due to the success of the Call of Duty series on the next gen platform and followed suit, in fear of revolt by the FPS community. I have seen first hand such revolts against Socom Confrontation on many gaming sites. It seems alot of FPS fans set pre judgement upon any non FPS shooters just do to the fact it's not FPS, instead of judging the titles upon the game itself.
Unfortunately marketing fears really seem to set developers back on creating there titles to there full extent. I really hope MAG will not end up dulled down to suit average gamers anymore.
