Agreed. I feared the idea of SMG mobility, and AR range but it works perfectly. as for the maps, they are fresh, and unique in their own way. I have yet to find my strategy for any of the new maps yet. the zombies is epic. Die rise and turned, and I never play zombies, what does that tell ya? Lol
after a week the complaints will be about the players not the maps. campers and head glitches. the OP is correct. they are beautiful maps and you can tell after ONE playthrough that they are better than the MW3 dlc maps.
