The Lighthouse maps is awesome!
And I'm happy with the "new" Versus Campaigns, but there is only one brand-new-map in this update.

I was playing the other day. I have to say, survival is tough! The best I did with 2 other guys was around 5:00. RKOver and I were playing together BTW.

Aye, I know, I was kinda let down. The survival mode is cool, and the lighthouse is neat, but come on -- at least one new campaign would've been nice. :P

I'd like to see No Mercy and Blood Harvest adjusted before they create new maps. :ohwell:

Survival mode = Awesomeness.

Death Toll and Dead Air for versus are far from done.

What about the bug in the map where u start out ontop of the apartments? Can you still run and jump off the side and fall to your death? There have been so many times when I'm in a lobby and we finally find a server with good pings when some jackass gets up on the ledge and runs off the side, then we have to kick him, return to lobby, and start all over. By that time everyone leaves to find a game in progress. Actually kind of funny, but still annoying if you're seriously looking for a game.

I saw this on Xbox Live so I downloaded it, was only 100mb. Put the game in for the first time in 4 months, loaded the menu and said "Fuck this" and played CoD4 online.

I agree, The horde is literally absent there need much more. And the usual super nerd high skillz noobs kick you when you can not drop all the survivors with the tank.

I found that the game is harder overall... horde sizes are bigger.
And the boomers vomit range is really long now.

As for the maps, I haven't had any serious complaints with them.

I gotta say survival mode is really difficult, I only got 4:20 on it after 2 hours of re-trying over and over, to my defence it was only me and a friend and 2 CPU players.

Survival is well hard but I managed 14:55 on Dead Air, Terminal map. I just wish they released some new campaign maps.
