A day before the new Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike was released Alan Ng offered us a preview of the gameplay, as well as some video footage. So now gamers have spent their first day with the new DLC, we thought we would see what they thought so far. Looking at one review from Attack of the Fanboy, it looks as though it is “nothing truly groundbreaking.”
We already know that the latest DLC contains five new maps, so choosing the best one will be down to personal preference. Before they even get to the review it seemed important for them to mention that this new content is exclusive to Xbox 360 owners only, the likes of the PS3 will have to wait another month.
If you are a hardcore gamer, then First Strike map pack has been developed with you in mind. However, the one update that will be of most interest has to be the new Zombie gametype. I do fear that Zombies takes away something from the main part of the game — but that’s just one man’s opinion.
Having said that Attack of the Fanboy believes that the new zombie mode is the best part of the new DLC, so would you agree with that?
We Got This Covered has also spent some time with COD Black Ops First Strike, and has taken a closer look at each new map. They have scored the new expansion pack a 9 out of 10, but just like to point out that $15 is a little too expensive, what do you think?
