Extinction Vs. Zombies

Ghosts PlayStation 3

Hey gamers, how do we feel about the extinction on ghosts? I like the zombies, but it feels too controlled. Now obviously, there needs to be some form of linear control, but I feel like the playable areas on extinction are much broader, but I haven't even made it past the 5th hive. Once I get into the "City" area after you protect the choper, me and my mates get DESTROYED. I love the level up system and the skill points. It feels like teamwork was a real concern for the Dev team. Zombies was AWESOME, don't get me wrong, but everyone just did their thing, whereas You stck together more in extinction and drop upgrades for each other and stuff. It's good to see SOME form of teamwork in CoD as I have noticed it dwindle substantially over the years. Thoughts?

After a while it just feels like yeah, I got way farther that time, but then you always start from the beginning again. I with that there was a way that you could reach a certain point and pick back up from there. Also, the thing I like the most like I said is that there is more emphasis on teamwork.

I HATE the zombies game mode! I also didn't care much for the survival in MW3, but I LOVE Extinction! Even though it is the same thing over and over again it hasn't gotten old yet! The only 2 complaints I have about it are the leper challenge and the fact that you can't pause it even in local offline play. I have escaped 6 times now and on average it takes around an hour everytime...that's an hour of dedicated play without being able to pause the game which kinda makes it hard to work in the schedule.

I hope they have more coming soon though!

I agree, I like extinction a lot more than zombies. I haven't had one person get pissed at me and troll me because I fell into last stand like on zombies. There are a lot of little things, too, that make extinction better, like traps and dropping turrets and strikes and stuff and propane tanks, electric fences, boxes lying around with money or weapons or whatever. It is way more thorough.

Yep just wasted another hour of my life trying to get the completionist trophy! Completed every challenge but the Leper! To top it off, right after the 30 seconds was up, the f***** ran right in front of me!!!!!!!!!

Actually FML 2 times cause I just played again and completed every challenge up to the very last hive and of course the last challenge was the leper! At least I still escaped, and this time with 2 relics active!

I don;t think I know what these relics are. I've heard of them, but never had one that I know of. What are they?

Once you prestige, you get one relic slot, and another each time you prestige up to 5. Relics are actually supposed to make the game harder but reward you with more score for leaderboards and ranking up.

relics are

1. take more damage

2. pistols only

3. smaller wallet and earn less cash ($3000 max)

4. no class selection (mortal)

5. do less damage

I was using 1 and 2 but you can choose whichever ones you want and change them whenever you want or use none at all.

Ive only played Extinction twice and it was really boring. I had a crapton of health and 2 or 3 self-revives, it felt impossible to die lol.
