Treyarch recently released the much awaited first DLC package for Call of Duty: Black Ops: the First Strike DLC – and while First Strike is 99.99% awesome, it’s not free from blunders. Following are four features of the new Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike DLC that you might not find too flattering.
If you’ve watched the First Strike DLC trailers of played the new maps yourself, then you might be aware of the new map gimmicks added to the new First Strike DLC Black Ops maps. In the new lineup of Black Ops maps, Treyarch has spruced things up a bit by added interactive elements in each map including a zip line, destructible bridge, and turrets that gun down players in the ” No Man’s Land” section of the Berlin Wall map. The new map gimmicks sound “fine and dandy” while watching the trailer for the First Strike DLC, but in practice, each new map interaction screws over CoD players and doesn’t really offer any benefits.
New maps; new glitches. Whenever new maps are introduced in any FPS games, people will always seek out exploits and such is the case with the First Strike DLC. There have been lots of glitch reports and reports of people finding their way to unfair map positions in the First Strike DLC, and while Treyarch will likely patch these glitches, it’s still a bummer for those of us that have to put up with them at the moment.
Zombies Gone Wild
Ascension is the new Zombies map that comes bundled with the First Strike DLC pack, and although its great to have a new Zombies map, Ascension is a bit challenging. Ascension was designed with cooperative play in mind and with its lack of hiding spots and the new blood-hungry monkeys trying to eat your brains out, you’ll have a very hard time playing Ascension by your lonesome.
Paying for Them
The long awaited second installment of maps introduced in the Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike DLC has finally made its way to Black Ops, but it comes baring a high price tag. When I first heard of the First Strike DLC pack I thought that it’d probably cost about 800 Microsoft Points or 1,000 MS Points at the most, but Treyarch exceeded gamer ‘ s price expectancy when they dropped a 1,200 Microsoft Points price tag on the Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike DLC pack. 1,200 MS Points is roughly $15 dollars and the price of high end DLC games – and in my opinion, too much for a DLC add-on for a $60 game.
