Ok before anyone tells me to 'stop wasting my time with games and read a book' don't waste your breath and leave this post. I read a lot of books,
at the moment I am reading a book on Roman military strategy and also Sniper One by Dan Mills which is a fantastic British Iraq war book.
Its a shame I have to mention this as people feel the need to bash us gamers for liking a really fun and social activity and make terrible assumptions
that gamers are uneducated etc. I thought we lived in a society where we had freedom to enjoy whatever activities we like (as long as they don't hurt
anyone) without being slagged of for no good reason.
Anyway enough of that I wanted to ask everyone how they are finding the new black ops zombies map pack 'rezurection'? I have been waiting a long
time for the old zombie maps and felt that old maps should be included on the newer games as they are dated and shouldn't be used to make more money
from us especially when most of us have the map on another game so have bought it TWICE!
Despite this I bought the map pack which also includes the new 'Moon' level starting in Groom Lake and quickly teleporting to the moon (which I
found quite a nice,funny touch having read some pretty wild conspiracy theories on this site regarding the moon and various secret US facilities) and
I like how the COD games, despite not being realistic, but keeping a semi-realistic feel about the game (by this I mean no lazer guns etc just
standard war with real weapons even if the warfare is grossly innacurrate) arn't afraid to try something quite out there and creative as these Nazi
zombies scenarios. This moon map certainly is something interesting with the moon suits limiting the sound greatly and the gravity effects reminisent
of unreal tornament back in the day, but imo its hard to justify charging us £10 a time for these maps because even though they are fun I don't feel
like a massive amount of effort goes into creating them.
I wanted to discuss what everyone thinks of this and other map packs and their value for money? I really loved the World of War maps for the WW2
feeling and was thrilled to play them again after trading in WaW as I can't afford to buy new game after new game without trading in to get big
discounts or just to get money to buy cheaper pre owned games. So I was pretty gutted when I found out that the mystery boxes all have black ops
weapons on not the original maps weapons
This means that we can't get most of the weapons from the box that arn't on the wall, no mg42 which
is the most fun gun ever with double tap, no fg either apart from on one map where its on the wall. I know its petty, but I was really looking forward
to getting that WW2 feeling again and having all the maps on one game, They should at least have options imo for weapons types.
I also think that the zombies mode is stupidly limited in just having one survival game mode. I'm guna make another thread about this as everyone
I've mentioned this to has seemed really enthusiastic about this suggestion for different game types, my favourite idea that I've had is a zombies
survival mode where everyone is fighting to get the top score, like in normal multiplayer where you get xp points for coming at the top etc, you could
have ways built into the game to sabotage the other players, locking them in rooms maybe with traps of time locked doors etc so you are all trying to
stay alive together, but also competing to better each other as well. Maybe you could let them die and not revive them to make it a lot harder for
them the next round, but maybe they spawn with a random loudout which could see them in an even better position then before so reviving them may
actually be the best option. I duno just some ideas.
Anyway I know there's a fair few players on here so thought I'd just post to see how everyone feels. Sorry for my poor spelling as well the spell
check isn't working on here, I'm sure you can all make sense of it though. I can't stand when people get mad at spelling I always think whos more
of an idiot the person who can't spell or the person who can't read their sentences because of a few mispelled words that are easy to decifer? But
thats a different discussion for another time
