I used to feel the same way about the maps. The thing with the maps is you gotta get used to the way how the game plays and the maps will eventually grow on you. Some of the maps like Raid and Standoff are easily up there with the best of BO1.
i think all the maps are pretty cool except for plaza and express.
although i cant find any really good sniping spots...and btw, the sniping for the wiimote is atrocious.
this game was meant for DA quick scopers who run and gun.
on any other CoD you can snipe and hold an area, on this game you got like 15 different entry points to your 1 area so its next to impossible to stay in one spot and keep on picking people off.
its a great game if you have a good connect while in the right lobby...its more like a coin flip that has 4 sides and 3 of them are against you.
I'm never sure of the point of these lists, surely you want to be friends with the people that play the same game as you at the same time. I also pretty much only have friends that are decent players and that have a mic ( I do make a few exceptions to the mic ) All of this can best be done in game.
