This is probably just me, but this new map "Mirage" reminds me of World at War's "Courtyard". The map itself will probably be different in terms of design, but it's the buildings that remind me of the past.
And here's Courtyard:
i noticed the same thing just wasnt sure what the map in waw was called
I think it may just be a coincidence as both have pretty typical ancient Asian architecture. Wonder if they drew any inspiration or hid any cookies relating back to WaW in there.
Funny... I also thought of WaW....just of the map Castle.
I loved Castle...Courtyard...not so much. Either way I would like a new map not a re-done map.
Speaking of, I hope Treyarch can bring the "Castle" remake "War Museum" into Black Ops 2.
What is that? Have I been in the basement too long again?
Castle. OMG. Would go perfectly with there "small map" mindset.
Thought the same thing...
... they may have just used it as a starting point, too.
Doesn't seem the same to me. Maybe the screenshot from WAW is in a different location that is why I cannot see the resemblance.
I wish they offered a retro map pack option with the best of the previous maps. I would love to play old maps with these new guns and perks. Heck, I just wish HC could play Nuketown 2025!
