1.) Der Riese - What can I say about this map that hasn't been said already? The basic set up of the map & the atmosphere is a sick mix, especially for it's time. The fact that you can run laps, teleport to escape zombies was & still is great to this day. Also introduced monkey bombs for the first time & had the Wonder waffel...
2.) Tranzit - I know many here might not have liked this map & many will disagree w/ me but I thought this map was brilliant. Yes, there is fog. Yes there are little hideous creatures ( that are somewhat annoying ) within the fog! I just thought the concept of a robot operating a bus in a post apocalyptic-zombie infested world was amazing. Also, it introduces our new characters...
3.) Nacht Der Untoten - This is the one that started it all for me & like most of you got you hooked on COD zombies. Just thought it was a brilliant idea all around... Holding down the fort style gameplay whilst Nazi zombies are coming after players from all directions.
4.) Ascension - Great map for running the undead into those flaming fiery traps & making some last second escapes a rocket boosted telepad. Introduced players to one of the best perks in COD zombies history, Phd flopper! For being the first DLC pack Treyarch did a great job on this one compared to ( my opinion ) Black ops 2, Die Rise...ugh...
5.) Moon - The season final to Black ops 1, also it had one of the best & rewarding EE's in any other zombie map ( Other than Buried. ) Besides the astronaut & those teleporting crawlers I thought this map was pretty well done.
Would like to see what maps are your top five?
1. Der Reise
2. Shangri La: It's hard and takes skill.
3. Mob Of the Dead: George & the fog ruin this otherwise perfect map, but you need a challange.
5. Kino Der Toten
Shi No Numa, Verruct, Ascension & Die Rise.
(Haven't played MOTD & Buried yet)
If you like Call of the dead you'll like MOTD... Haven't played Buried yet either, look's pretty good though. Nice list.
Shi No Numa
CotD being my favorite despite the fact that I hate every single playable character.
Honorable mention to DOA. ♥
Mention to Shi No Numa and BO1 Nacht
Mob of the Dead
Just my opinion. Im sure everyone has their own opinions
I'm going to include my 5 least favorite maps as well.
Honerable mentions: Buried, Shangri-La, Call of the Dead, Shi No Numa, Kino der Toten, and "Five"
1. Shangri La - (Most Fun)
2. Die Rise - (Best Atmosphere)
3. Call of the Dead - (All Around Good Map)
4. Moon (Most Epic)
5. Mob of the Dead - (Best Wonder Weapon)
I haven't played Buried yet but from what I've seen I think it would take Moon's place for me.
