Excerpt: Call Of Duty will go down in gaming history, at present, as one of the most popular franchises of all time. Breaking records on every release and providing some of the most memorable experiences for gamers. Infinity War has always been the big brother in terms of the development with Treyarch slightly behind developing Call Of Duty games that were great, but arguably, not brilliant in terms of their releases.
Call Of Duty Black Ops: Escalation map pack – Review (360)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: The Escalation map pack contains four new maps and a bonus zombie map. Time to peel yourself off of the sofa again for some Black Ops mayhem. By now, most of you may have peeled yourself away from other games, downloaded the Escalation map pack whilst biting your lip at the 1200 points you’ve just spent whilst praying to God, your wife doesn’t find out.
Excerpt: Gamers are a funny old bunch. They spend the best part of twenty years banging on about how gaming should be accepted by the masses, and now that it has - primarily through Call of Duty - they spend half their lives drawing devil horns on pictures of Bobby Kotick. So it goes. I've always found the easiest way is just to conform - because isn't it nice playing a multiplayer game that's well made, blisteringly fast, and always entertaining? So, yes, I like Call of Duty.
Excerpt: Black Ops 2’s latest map pack isn’t quite as ostentatious with its settings as Uprising, which is a huge shame. There’ll be no more mechanical dinosaurs to camp by, no lava to hilariously strafe into, and you won’t be able to stare at The Shard in the distance and imagine Alan Sugar huffing around. Vengeance is a much more sober affair. Apart from the paintball stage. And the underground Wild West town filled with ghosts, zombies and alien rayguns. But still.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Rezurrection Map Pack (Xbox360)
31 August 2011
Excerpt: Following on the heels of Call of Duty: Black Ops’ previous map packs, First Strike, Escalation, and Annihilation, comes Rezurrection (did anyone else notice the first letters of the map pack titles spell out F.E.A.R?). For many, the sad news is that Rezurrection will be the final map pack released for Call of Duty: Black Ops, but the happy news is if you felt there weren’t enough zombie maps to play on before, this time around it’s all about zombies – Nazi Zombies,...
Conclusion: These maps are pretty impressive and very well-designed. They range in size from small to large, and contain a lot of unique details. If you are considering expanding your Black Ops experience, the Annihilation Map Pack is the way to go.
Excerpt: Many gamers were up in arms after Modern Warfare 2 ‘s policy of providing three new maps, and two old ones in their DLC packs. Thankfully, in a step away from Infinity Ward’s repackaging strategy, Treyarch has opted to provide four brand new maps and a new zombie stage in their first DLC pack, entitled First Strike .
Excerpt: Treyarch gets a bad wrap for being the developer responsible for the non-Infinity Ward Call of Duty games. Sure, both of the Modern Warfare games are considered pinnacles of the current generation’s first-person shooter genre, but that doesn’t mean that Treyarch’s efforts ( Call of Duty 3, Call of Duty: World at War ) are any less worthwhile.
