Favorite DLC Multiplayer map(s)?

Among the 4 new multiplayer maps in Revolution (Downhill, Grind, Hydro and Mirage) which is your favorite?

I think that Grind is the best map in the pack because it takes place ON A SKATE PARK. Just when you thought Call of Duty couldn't get any crazier. Hydro and Mirage were pretty decent as well since they're somewhat symmetrical, but Downhill would be my least favorite of the 4 maps because I'm not really a fan of huge maps.

There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

I don't think Downhill is that big at all. It's fairly small for a map, to be honest.

Anyhow, my favourite is Mirage. I love desert. This map is great. Hydro, meh. Grind, it's okay. Downhill is good. Mirage and Downhill are my favs. Although, the new zombie map looks interesting. I didn't play much but instead of opening that first door, I shot the roof of the elevator and it fell all the way down. :L

Downhill: A window camper/sniper paradise. Feels like Array, forget which game that was in right now but I never liked it. To be fair it isn't as bad as Array.

Grind: This years Stadium, but not nearly as fun. Still the best of the bunch. I like the sunny beach setting, a nice change from all the rubble towns.

Hydro: Absolutely awful. Feels like Meltdown with waterfalls. Terrible flow to it, no pun intended.

Mirage: Didn't get anything other than a game of Search & Destroy on it, but it seems forgettable enough.

Downhill: Enjoyed the games i had on this last night, lots saying its a campers paradise but ive yet to see this. its quite big and open and i like the look of it. 7/10

Grind: I totally agree with this being the new stadium map, i LOVE this map its so much fun, the curved edges make a huge difference to the way it plays out and pretty much allows all play styles. 10/10

Hydro: Absolutely awful. Feels like Meltdown with waterfalls. Terrible flow to it, no pun intended. i felt this sums up my feelings, all my friends like it, i HATE it worst map in the game for me coupled with Meltdown. 1/10

The map ive had least games on, the bus and balcony past the bus seem to be campers/snipers paradise, it looks good however, is a decent size and offers a good variety of ways to play. a solid addition. 8/10

Die Riese: Had one game with what sounded like a group of 4 year olds but to be honest it was brilliant, an absolute 100% improvement for me, i was so dissapointed with what BO2 had to offer zombie wise, if this map is the example of whats to come then Zombies for me is back with a bang it is fantastic, round 9 was all i got to but i can see many wasted hours on this map. 10/10

Grind, Downhill, Mirage, Hydro

Die Rise is a complete 180 for zombies in this game for me. It went from pointless in TranZit, to incredible in Die Rise.

IMO Hydro is one of the worst maps I've ever played in any multiplayer game ever. I can't even put my finger on why! I just despise it for some reason.

This is what I posted to another group the other day:

Hydro - 8/10: I think that the water hazard is a nice touch and there are lots of ways to flank people which is always welcome.

Grind - 10/10: Early days but I have to give this a flawless rating. This map has my kind of level all over it. The close quarters nature (with a few long straights) is is brilliant.

Mirage - 8/10: After a few extra goes last night I continued to like this level even if I have no specific reason to. Maybe it is because I have a thing about desert levels? Maybe it is because I was a beast each time? LOL

Downhill - 7/10: Arguably the best looking of each map (along with Grind) and surprisingly non-campy considering the layout. Got to enjoy it after a few goes but we shall see when the campy buggers take hold of the map.

Ironically enough, Grind has to be my favorite of the DLC pack. I am not a big fan of domination, but Dom. on that map is a lot of fun. C4+B flag = epic multi-kills.

Mirage and Downhill are pretty decent but Hydro is a steaming pile of trash, headglitch and camp city

Grind and Mirage are my favorite of the bunch.

Downhill was decent, and Hydro was one of the worst maps that I have ever played.

Considering all of them are pretty small, I don't really like any of them. I was really hoping that since most all of Black Ops 2's default maps are small in size already that they would change it up and add some larger maps finally. I'm a Search and Destory kind of guy and call me old school, but I prefer to play Search games where everyone slowly hangs back, scouts out the area, and sticks together to survive. Not suicide rushing and trying to get as many kills as you can before you die in the first thirty seconds. With tiny maps like Grind, it only encourages that play style and each round lasts about a minute and that's just not fun to me.

Here's to hoping that the next map pack has larger maps.

Grind - I really like this map, don't get me wrong. It's just, overrated to me. I think it's just the setting that really gets people's attention. 7/10

Hydro - What a shocker. A very badly set out map, suited for camping snipers. The water thing is just annoying. 3/10

Downhill - this map is really cool. It's like Array a lot which I like. 8/10

Mirage - This map is very underrated also. I don't see what's so bad about it. 9/10

Grind - I love the oddly shaped barriers and objects. It stops people from head glitching. I also love the middle area with the little 'window' where shit is always going on. 9/10

Mirage - This map is mediocre to me. I can't remember anything exciting going on while playing this map. It flows good, but nothing spectacular. 4/10

Downhill - This map gets the least amount of playtime out of the pack. It is pretty fun, and feels like Discovery from BO1. The hills of snow, and the little buildings make this map interesting. 6/10

Hydro - This is my favorite map out of the pack! I'm not sure why everybody hates it, I always have great games on this map with tons of kills. The simplicity is what I love. Most of the action happens in the middle without too much flanking. 10/10

COD4 10th Prestige 55. My favorite COD.
