I've had the game for four days and have played through a good number of the maps in multiplayer, and I must say that while some of them are fairly interesting from a detail standpoint, they just weren't designed with creating interesting gameplay situations in mind. Kinda sad how one of the best multiplayer maps from a gameplay standpoint is one taken from Rogue Spear. The parade map is pretty cool, but that seems to be the best one out of the bunch. Many of the rest, while somewhat interesting from a sheer design standpoint as I said, don't seem to create cool battle scenarios like many of the maps in Rogue Spear. They almost kind of feel like a lot of user-created maps I've played over the years--fun to wander around in for a few minutes, but just not that great for gameplay. That one map of the mansion with a pool, whatever it's called, is a good example.
There just haven't been a lot of memorable multiplayer games in RVS for me so far. I'm beginning to miss the maps like Siberia I, Chalet, The Met, Subway, Turkish Bazaar.... :-( I guess Redstorm had better map designers than Ubisoft do.
Anybody else agree?
Also, any news on a mission pack?
