Black Ops Annihilation: Hours of fun or £10 too much?

Debate: Is the latest COD DLC worth the dough?

Call of Duty: Black Ops has received its latest DLC drop on the Xbox 360 today with the Annihilation map pack.


You all know what's involved by now; there are four new competitive multiplayer maps in Annihilation as well as a brand new Zombies map specially made for holding off the undead horde.

Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia has said the maps in the add-on offer "exciting and unique multiplayer settings" but we know that a good chunk of the CVG crowd remains sceptical when it comes to Call of Duty DLC.

Now that you've had at least a few hours to get to grips with the nee maps, we're looking for your verdict. If you're a cynic, have your preconceptions been quashed? Does Annihilation really bring something new to Black Ops and is it worth the £10.28 asking price?

Of course, there's probably an equal number of readers that have never turned their nose up at new ways to play CoD. If you're a faithful follower, we want to hear from you too.

Is Annihilation what you'd hoped for? How does it stand up to previous DLC offerings and is it worth shelling out the notes?

Team PS3 will have to wait a while for the Annihilation pack to finish its exclusive stint on Xbox Live, but at least they get to see reactions from the 360 bunch first. Would you recommend Annihilation to the PS3 crowd? Let us know in the comments below...
