We Got This Covered takes a look at the highly anticipated DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops, First Strike. But at 1200 MSP, is it worth the price?
LOL, I almost reported for using we in description. And then I looked at the site name. BTW nice site name.
oh w8 with 15$ i can get Magica and Breach on Steam. Kotick you SOB
Activision should just sell the zombie map standalone from the other multi maps for about 3.99 then it'll be more reasonable
How is THAT more reasonable?
15 dollars for 3 maps? i'm sure there are plenty of retards willing to pay that too. btw, the only people that are going to review dlc are people that like a game enough to shell out money to play it so of course the review will be high.
I'm sure you spend your money only on things that help the world to be better! Relax cheese toast. Don't fret on what other people spend their money on.
cheese toast? wow i guess the point is that if activision now believes they can charge 15 dollars for 3 or 4 crappy maps and all you idiots pay for it, then they'll keep doing it. so when an actual good developer wants to figure out how much they can get for 3 maps, they'll use the working model. it used to be 5 dollars for 2 or 3 maps, then it was 10, now it's 15. it's sick. and your defensive of it is pathetic.
You gotta admit it is pretty stupid. $15 for 3 or 4 maps that could easily be in the game disc, followed by another $15 for a couple maps that are remakes from the previous game. LMAO. And so on. Seriously, after spending so much money on DLC, I better have a whole new game along with those maps, lol. Unfortunately, even if people do whine about it, they'll give in and keep paying for these. That's how companies will keep ripping us off, because people buy into their BS.
Obviously it's not stupid if a large amount of people pay for it. It's called a business. You wouldn't pay that much for some maps, I get that part. My defensive of it is pathetic? Really? I buy it because I can afford it. I get more than my $15 dollars worth playing with my friends. Especially out of the zombie maps. If it's not for you it's not for you, but to think everyone else is wrong is just ignorant. A perfect example is this. I never buy soda in the gas station because I don't like the price point obviously they sell the stuff like crazy. For me to think everyone is wrong for buying it even though I wont is simply immature.
Not stupid for the company, as it is obviously a smart yet greedy decision that will make them more money. Business. It is stupid for the people that constantly buy into it all the freakin time.
Its 4 maps and while I personally don't approve of $15 map dlc(I find it hard to spend $15 on the full games) clearly many people are willing to dish out the money or else they would've dropped the price since the MW2 map pack cost the same. People complain and moan and groan then go and buy the dlc and games anyway. If a game sells millions or a map pack sells the same why would a company care for a few complainers on a few forums? If you don't want to pay that much then don't buy it at all and I bet you if the sales drop drastically the next pack will be maximum $10.00.
I agree with that. I think $15 is the max I'll pay for 3 to 4 maps. On the plus side you don't have to buy it unless you want to. Or you could always wait for the GOTY version. I Don't see the map packs dropping in price because of the success of COD. I think it's funny to see other games charging a lot for map packs when the game isn't even that popular.
[oops, double post]
Um no its 4 maps, and 1 zombie map, which is practically a new game in itself. I'm not gonna debate the price, but the Ascension zombies map is the best zombie map to date and really completely feels like a fresh new experience, as all zombie maps usually do. Hate on Activision for pricing it that way, but I think Treyarch has done a great job trying to at least give VALUE for the 15 spent. MILES better than IW basically giving 3 new maps for the same price. The new zombie map alone probably took more effort than an entire MW2 map pack. But then there's also 4 new MP maps that are actually pretty great and introduce new dynamics into the game. Yea I know haters just gonna hate on a successful franchise and not really think rationally or mature, but Treyarch did a much better job than Infinity Ward on this.
the only thing i like about treyarch (and it's a BIG like!) is zombie mode. they should be developing that into a real series and drop the CoD nonsense. people buy these map packs to get the zombie map. take the zombie map off of any mappack(including ones in WaW) and see what happens to sales.
9/10 for a CoD DLC mappack So basically it is better rated than Demon's Souls. I have no hope for this world.
I thought there was going to be more then 3 maps...but $15 FOR ONLY 3 MAPS? not funny that 3maps cost equals to 25% of blackops MSRP
It is 5 maps dude, 4 competitive and 1 zombie. Not sticking up for the price, really should have been $10-12 but whatever, Treyarch did a great job rolling out updates and the game is light years ahead of MW2, so I bought it unlike the MW2 maps.
apparently the zombie map alone is worth it though
Please don't give Activision any ideas- I could see them charging 20 bucks for 1 zombie map and still hordes of people buying it.
they won't do that - if they sell the zombie maps separate - then their CoD mappacks won't sell.
That seems like a lot for 3 maps...
The DLC may have some good content but the question is, Is it worth it? the answer is NO
All maps look awesome and I will definitely purchase them. Nice article.
The maps are solid, the only 1 that sucks is Kowloon. Too big and a ridiculously complicated layout that is practically a maze.
what about the Stadium, big open flat space, I saw the vid earlier and it looks like a killfest.
That is my favorite map of the bunch. Stadium is similar in set-up to the map Summit. Big open area in the middle where people always rush to, but the map is big enough around the sides that allow for flanking routes and buildings that over look different sections of the map to get the people who run and gun around the middle. If you like Summit, you will like Stadium.
guess its different tastes because I dislike the open area maps even with the flanking routes you mentioned and I actually like what I saw of Kowloon, the tiered level, multipath system may be complicated but if you can learn it then it will be a lot of fun to jump into.
