Buy it, Rent it, or F*** it: Black Ops II - Revolution

NOTE: In the case of DLC, the "Rent it" option means to wait for a price drop or a sale.

+The four new multiplayer maps all look fantastic and are brimming with personality
+Downhill is one of my new favorite CoD maps across the board
+Mirage is fantastic as well
+Hydro is good, but not as good as Downhill/Mirage
+Turned is a great new mode that is surprisingly addicting and fun, with fast gameplay the series is known for
+Die Rise is a fresh take on Zombies and is like traversing through a maze
+The new enemies in Die Rise are fun to fight
+10 new achievements add a lot of replayability
+Peacekeeper is an adequate addition
-Grind, while it looks cool, boils down to a campfest that favors certain spawn points over actual skill
-Ridiculously long Easter eggs just aren't fun anymore
-Other people playing on the same console of the DLC owner has no access to Peacekeeper, but can play on all the maps
-Due to its physical appearance pre-DLC in Zombies, the "Turned" map makes me feel that at least some of this DLC is on disc
-Turned can't be played in split-screen online
-Turned is only available on one map

VERDICT:

Rent it

"Buy it".... at 800pts or lower. Otherwise, f*** it. Anything more than 800pts is way too much to spend on any CoD map pack.

Pass. I used to trust Treyarch but they've lost that trust. The MP in BLOPS2 has too much lag and maps are too small. The Tranzit zombies was also disappointing, with the map being way too big and time consuming to traverse, and now I hear they've made it worse by killing undamaged zombies if you leave the area.

If I hear good things about the new zombies I may get it on sale later for that. Seems to me CoD stuff isn't holding its pricing power like it used to, so I doubt I'll have too long to wait.

Bro, when you tack on mass, you sacrifice flexibility. That's just a straight up fact

Rent.

CoD map packs are already too expensive. Plus, the Peacekeeper disappears from your loadout occasionally.

hmm...it appears that my brother, who previously could not access the Peacekeeper, can now access it.

The new maps are way better than most from the base game.
