Something interesting about Mirage.

Call of Duty Black Ops II Xbox 360

Something interesting about Mirage.

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.

Here's Mirage:

And here's Courtyard:

Interesting thought.

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.

Thought the same thing...

... they may have just used it as a starting point, too.

Who knows?

That's my opinion but it should be yours ;-),

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!
