The first map pack for Call of Duty: World at War has been downloaded over 2 million times. Soon, Activision will discover whether a second map pack will have similar selling power, as the Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack 2 is set to arrive on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network tomorrow for $9.99 (MSP 800)

The new pack includes four new maps. In "Banzai," players battle for control of a jungle river bridge while snipers hide in caves. In "Corrosion," combatants duke it out in a decrepit Russian train yard where enemies can be above or below you. "Sub Pens" features intense melee combat in a bombed-out Japanese submarine. "Shi No Numa" is an addition to the four-player co-op mode, where players have to keep moving if they want to survive an unending zombie onslaught.

I'm not interested, ever since playing Battlefield Bad Company's multiplayer, CoD online just feels... kinda sucky, and not just for CoD: WaW, but for Modern Warfare as well. Anyhow, I agree with many of you, the zombie mode is actually quite a lot of fun.

Damn! I'll have to wait next month until I get these maps.

@ anubisreign and you're telling us that because?

MW and WAW are different time zones, hence a different type of combat. Many gamers like me appreciate WW2 combat, with the M1 garand etc, i dont know about others but i find getting a kill with a bolt action immensly satisfying!!! MW more automatic weapons are aimed at close quarters combat, which is a different ball game. Zombie mode also adds an extra dimension to WAW also, you dont get XP, but everyone still plays it for hours if you wanna go level 20+.

@Adziboy: Thanks for giving me some answers, and in a respectful way. Iron Sights: I see where you're coming from. I don't use iron sights if I can help it (aperture sights) so I never really notice this. Animations: Valid point, however when I'm busy shooting people I really don't have time to notice. Maps: As far as them being too big, I actually think this is a pro when it comes to WaW. MW's maps are small to the point where you stumble across the other team in a matter of seconds from the match starting (which brings in the grenade x3/grenade launcher problem). Basically, since the maps are bigger (and since you can't fire a live grenade round from a launcher for the first 15 seconds of a SnD match) I don't find myself exploding as soon as I spawn. Plus you can't throw grenades as far as you can in MW. Hit Boxes: I HAVE noticed this, and I agree it is annoying when I'm firing dead on a guy's chest and I don't even hit him...however, it's happened to me in MW as well, so I live with it either way. Campaign mode: I do agree with everything you said. It's just that when I hear everyone complaining about WaW, it's usually about the multiplayer. So when I asked about what makes MW so much better than WaW, I'm asking about the multiplayer. I agree, MW's campaign is better than WaW's. @taylormadederek: I also hate vehicles, but I play Hardcore TDM and SnD (no vehicles). Maybe the reason I like WaW better is simply because I'm playing the least annoying playlists?

Eat $h!T Activision. You should be learning from EA of what happens to the evil corporation that no one likes. \ \ @ Wizzl241 One of the big differences if vehicles. I personally hate them. It is not as balanced of a game. It would work out alright (MAYBE) if people actually worked together. However there is no communication and it is just a free for all. It is kind of fun to play but overall it just feels cheap and a huge rip off of Modern Warfare. I guarantee you that when Infinity Ward ships Modern Warfare 2 there is a serious upgrade in the multiplayer. For WaW there was NO upgrade.

Activision is all about the $$$$$, DLC is Capitalism at it's finest. My kid wants these but maybe I can talk him out of it this time, seems like a waste of money to me though he still plays the other ones once in awhile.

@Wizzl241: WAW is a good game, but MW blows it out the waters. Iron Sights - a few guns have off placed sights, but majority is alright. Animations - Far worse than that of MW, or other games in fact. Maps - Bit too big. Hit boxes - sometimes you'll hit people shooting the air next to them, or shoot there head and go straight through. Campaign - Not much different and nothing really unique to WAW. Story - Well, there wasn't really one. You win battles, you win war. Character development - Pretty simple - there wasn't one. It's pretty much worse in everything. But it's not a BAD game, just not as good. MW lovers just exaggerated.

I've played the crap out of both WaW and MW, and I actually prefer WaW. What I find funny is that so many people talk about how much crap WaW is, and how it's "horrible" but don't ever really say why. I'd really like to know, what makes MW one of the best online shooters (which I can agree with) but what makes WaW so "broken as hell", when they are so similar?

I'll just wait for MW2 rather than to buy this maps

i have to admit, i don't like WaW nearly as much as i liked MW. i actually stopped playing halfway through a mission so i could jump out and play MW instead. Wish they'd release another map pack for that...

I don't play WaW that much anymore not sure if this is worth the money, I think more map packs should be free to say thank you to the community. I've only ever seen it with Bad Company where conquest and new community selected maps were downloaded for free

While I can't exactly say that the Wii is the best console out there (far from it) everything nini said is true. Nintendo has always been the leader in video game innovation. Everyone else just copies, regardless of how much better they're systems may be as a whole. Also this game is incomplete, in fact it's broken as hell. This game is terrible I got rid of mine. For what some of you may ask? I traded it to someone to mow my yard, that's how much I despise this "game."

is anyone else getting tired of paying for new maps

Who cares...? Treyarch Call of Duty games are always not as good as Infinity Ward's. This definitely applies to WaW. And to nini200.. Just because something sells doesn't mean it's the best. The Wii has a lot of good titles, but it also has a lot of absolutely terrible third party games.

@ anubisreign A Wii is the system that's kicking your systems butt in sales and it's the system that your console is deciding to copy with some form of motion controls (As shown at E3). It's also the only company that can come up with it's own ideas and NOT copy the competition just because they see it selling waaayyyyyy better than they are (Also as shown at E3). That's what a Wii is. :)

Sooooooo, when does the Wii get any stage updates? @ Heathcliff I agree 100%. They just changed the name from Expansion Packs to DLC. The products are incomplete and the companies know it. It's just another way for them to get 100+ dollars for a $50 game.

I'll have to pass for now. My friends and I have kind of left WaW to collect dust lately. Just didn't seem to have the same staying power as CoD4 for us. Also I don't look forward to being stuck waiting 8 years to get into a match because it has to wait for other people with the map pack to free up. It still does that sometimes with the 1st one.
