The latest DLC has been rumoured as being named Retaliation. A little less on that and a little more on the latest release; Annihilation.
So I finished my studies and waiting for me was this map pack.
My opinions so far are this:
This happens to be the best map pack released to date, maybe better than first strike! Hazard, and drive in really have me sold; Hangar 18 is a very decent map but has very wide open spaces, Silo... again a decent map but most likely the worst of the lot due to the spawns. Although I have managed a decent K:D on it a few times now!
With regards to the latest zombie map; I am unable to give a decent review as I am awaiting Snorlax's arrival to play the map.
So what does Retaliation bring and what will it give us?
Now I have a horrible sneaking suspicion that as so far the order of the DLC has been; Good, ok, Good... that the next DLC may only be O.K.
So can the names of the maps redeem themselves? Well no. Not really:
Personally I like the sound of Metro and Mansion. However they all sound a bit samey.
The zombie map will be featured in area 51... or hangar 18. If you haven't played hangar 18 yet, get to it, you won't be disappointed.
The release date looks to be the first Tuesday of September - 06/09/2011. So good news for all you young-uns heading back to school/college... looks like those school nights won't be so drab.
Anywho I'm off to play some Hazard with my crazy sniping skills... oh check out Snorlax's Sniping on hazard the other day... it'll make you smile inside.
