There are some really impressive maps seen in multiple Call of Duty games throughout the years. However, there have been instances where the players didn’t end up liking tons of them. Well, it seems like the ongoing Modern Warfare II is the title that has recently come under the radar of some players for seemingly featuring a poor level design of maps especially in comparison to its own predecessor from 2019.

Specifically, he revealed his opinion on the newly introduced map of Al Mazrah. It made its debut last year with the game’s release. Going by what the makers had revealed, it’s the biggest ever map in the series, offering many areas of exploration and to make strategies during various modes in Multiplayer as well as battle royale, and even DMZ.

However, Crimsix believes that Call of Duty Modern Warfare II lacks a good map design. And that it’s nothing in comparison to something like Verdansk – a large map that was originally revealed in 2019’s rebooted Modern Warfare from Infinity Ward.
