Black Ops 2 trailer shows overhauled Nuketown 2025, still lo

Your comments on our articles.

Future tech no answer to acute shortages of space, apparently

The future of Nuketown is, alas, still Nuketown. Activision's released a montage of killshots on Black Ops 2 map Nuketown 2025, which looks a lot shinier for the remaster but no less claustrophobic and chaotic. I'm not sure why they bothered putting together a montage, really - people die often enough in the average Nuketown game that you can do without the edits.... read more

Glad I have the Hardened edition on pre-order - I can't wait!!

Nuketown was not one of my favourite maps (too small) but I must admit I never had a really 'bad' experience playing on it.

Why? nuketown comes with the normal editions as well! you just have to pre-order.

However you don't get Nuketown Zombies (only the MP map 2025). Also get a Steelbook version, a couple of avatar items, weapon Camos and playercard emblems (I think) and maybe a few other things too

I hate this map. Why?

Put simply:

There is no Complexity to this map. It's just head across the street and fire at the first guys you see. There's no strategy, there's no flanking, and nade spam easily goes from spawn to spawn.
It's the equivalent of playing paintball or lazer tag with almost no cover.
No one genuinely loves that map for anything other than getting lots of kills and requiring no thought. Same with Shipment from CoD4.

I am getting it for £60 (inc P&P) from Amazon.co.uk and it is expected to arrive on the 13th Nov (day of release). This may not be the cheapest place but I have more faith in Amazon than GAME for example.

Whilst I do agree with you to some degree (Its some of the reasons why I am not a big fan) I do not think it is as bad as Shipment or Rust (from MW2). Every match in whatever game mode is always fast and frantic and I do not feel disadvantaged by starting on either side. From that perspective, it is quite balanced. MW3's Mission for example is not very balanced when it comes to domination and some maps (from numerous CoD games) seem to have areas of NO traffic or use. Nuketown at least utilises all of the map. Personally I would have preferred a remake of nearly any of the other Black Ops Maps (inc DLC) BUT I am not complaining about getting this map.

Unfortunately it seems that Nuketown is regarded by a lot of people as the best Black Ops Map and they regularly had Nuketown 24/7 playlists. I think part of the reason I don't like it so much is because of the amount of times this map always gets played or voted in - it got over played from my perspective. To avoid it, I have opted to play the DLC moshpit or Ground Wars in the last 6 months+ - maybe I should give it another go in preparation for Black Ops 2.... :wink:
