All map packs are money wastes imo. I've seen videos by people like Vanoss and Sp33dy and it doesn't this look like anything special either

The zombies are worth it, but you can't download them separately so it is a waste

From a developer point of view, you guys don't even know what you're talking about. There are tons of additional details and resources made specifically for each map.
That means they actually spend a lot of time and work on these packs, which sadly ends up overlooked by hordes of self-entitled consumers.

Not saying it's all perfect fun, but certainly not a waste either.
Try developing a functional map that isn't outright horrible to play in and you'll quickly find out that it's not at all drag n' drop from prefab.
It's hours of planning and drafting before you can even begin to build a beta-stage version. And I can tell you, the building part takes (at least) double the duration of time spent on planning.

I do. I meant it's a waste of money for the consumers, not the developers. They could sell the worst 5 maps in CoD history and still the diehard fanboys would get it. The developers only care about the money, although Treyarch at least try to care.

I have to agree, die-hard kids will go for every piece of cash-in there is. But they're not, in terms of content and effort, a waste of money. Unless of course you honestly dislike the content which is understandable.

Treyarch has upped the ante with Black Ops 2 DLC maps by a long shot, especially with the free DLC demo weekends, I really respect that.
