I've been having a hard time as of late (since the new DLC, Devastation) actually wanting to play the game, partly because of the new DLC. The first DLC was amazing, Fog was one of my favorite maps on any game mode. Bayview was great for quick corners, containment had its ups and downs, but was a relatively balanced map, unless playing Dom... and lastly Ignition. Ignition is a remake, but by far the best map they "revived" as a playable DLC map.
When playing Devastation, i feel like each map is unique on it's own, but really dilutes they flow of CoD:Ghosts. Behemoth is one of the least balanced maps in my opinion, next to Collision. Behemoth is an all around corner trap, spawn trap, anywhere. It actually reminds me of an original Call of Duty (for the PC or Xbox360 edition) where you're on a nazi ship that you can climb for days. the corners are too tight and makes it difficult to play with anything but an SMG (i mostly play HC mode). Collision was my least favorite of the 4 (3 if you don't count Dome remake). the layout is mostly unpredictable and promotes camping more than any map so far that I can tell. S&R on Collision is horrible, just saying.
Moving on to Ruins and Unearthed.. these maps are a little more balanced and open playing field compared to the other Dev DLC. Ruins has great lean corners, spots high and low. and the spawns are a little more intricate making it a little more difficult to get the spawn kill right away seeing as how there are far more obstacles and caverns to rush through. the biggest problem i have with Ruins is that it hardly pops up in the map vote for me... probably just coincidence. Unearthed, aka Dome.. of course is a repetition map that people enjoy for some reason. it was ok in MW3, and should have stayed there. the map is fun for Infected IMO, but we can't play Devastation Infected until DLC 3. sad day.
On the other hand, I feel ripped off seeing another map remake in a second DLC. stick to 1 good old map, bring it back. great thanks for Ignition... great job IMO, but Dome too? why not just make another map. well it'd probably turn out as horrible as the rest of the DLC aside from the Ripper, which is comparable to the MTAR-X, if you use the MTAR-X why use The Ripper? ... doesn't matter to me i suppose i still play HC mostly.
That all being said, DLC 2 is a great disappointment and is really encouraging me to play just the normal playlist maps, and switch between playing BO2 to keep my sanity. What are you're thoughts on the new DLC? did it live up to expectations? or did it fall far far from where it should have been and is only the beginning of a climactic failure for future DLC? overall DLC 1 > DLC 2 ... I can't say i like the maps yet, maybe they'll grow on me with more time and learning the maps a little better, but even still... i was hardly as frustrated with DLC 1 when it was brand new.
