So, how bout those new maps?

Yesterday the second (most likely final) map pack was released for Modern Warfare 2 on Xbox 360. Like the previous pack, it took half the day for it to show up for download on consoles. After what happened the last time, they really couldn’t be more prepared? But that’s not the point.

The point is, is the Resurgence pack worth the 1200 Microsoft Points? That depends on who you’re talking to. As much as I complain about MW2 I keep coming back to it. But most of my gripes now are with the people that play it rather than maps and such.

My answer is yes. The maps are worth the buy if you are still playing MW2 these days. Strike and Vacant are our COD4 maps and Fuel, Carnival, and Trailer Park are the new additions. I of course am a sucker for nostalgia moments and enjoy the COD4 maps the most. Good memories from my first COD MP experiences.

I think the only map I dislike from this pack it Fuel. It is just too freaking big and complicated. God help you if you land in a Free-for-All game there. Otherwise I’m enjoying the new maps and am ready for them to be integrated into the regular playlists.

What does everyone else think?

Patience People

Just chill for a little bit my gamer friends, the maps will come soon. This should be no surprise to players after what happened on release day of the last map pack. So just sit tight and wait. Hope none of you stayed up until midnight waiting for it.

I will have a review as soon and it becomes available for me/I have a chance to play it.

~~~~~UPDATE~~~~~

If the pack does not display on your console try using this link to add it to your queue via xbox.com

Countdown to Resurgence Map Pack

So we are about a week away from the release of the second map pack for MW2 entitled the Resurgence Package. Here’s what you’ll be getting…

Via modernwarfare2.com

Carnival,” a large abandoned theme park that offers lots of unique vantage points that work well for all game modes. The once vibrant rides now sit idle and neglected as perfect cover points in one of the most original multiplayer locations for Modern Warfare 2.

Fuel,” a massive oil refinery with extremely long sightlines great for medium- to long-range firefights. The spacious surroundings offer a great sniper advantage; offices, warehouses, and buildings house objectives and provide opportunity for close-range firefights.

Trailer Park,” a medium-sized mobile estate with a maze of tight flank routes and lots of cover. Junk covered yards, deserted trailers, and debris-riddled surroundings offer intense firefights with a wide variety of vantage points and routes available.

Strike,” a large urban desert town, excellent for medium-to-large team games. The large monument, connecting streets, and surrounding buildings offer great firefights in Team Deathmatch, and great vantage points for objective team games.

Vacant,” a deserted Russian office complex offering a great mixture of interior and exterior combat. Long hallways with minimal cover points offer a fast escape route for potential runners, but high accuracy and fast aiming is required when advancing through this large complex.

You will notice that the last two maps are, again, COD4 maps. Oddly enough not word yet on a priceĀ  but I assume that it will hold the same 1200MP tag the Stimulus Package had.

I’ve taken a bit of a break from MW2 since becoming immersed in Red Dead Redemption but this map pack doesn’t look half bad. And as much as I will complain about the high price (assuming it’s 1200MP) I’m sure I will end up eating my words and hitting the download button.
