So, after hours of playing these maps and time spent surfing the various forums and chatrooms, the answer to the original question appears to be that, even at a cost of $15, this DLC is well worth the cost in the opinion of most gamers. The addiction that is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package beckons. This is Taskforce 141, we are Oscar Mike!

Spielerisch und technisch gesehen ist das Stimulus Pack einwandfrei. Die fünf neuen Karten machen Spaß und präsentieren sich nicht nur optisch abwechslungsreif. Es ist für jeden etwas dabei. Für den Taktiker gibt es zum Beispiel Verwuchert, der Scharfschütze bevorzugt sicher die Karte Absturz. Adrenalinjunkies fahren mit Salvage sehr gut und haben auch auf Storm ihren Spaß. Die Frage, die sich am Ende jedes Matches jedoch immer noch stellt ist: „Ist das alles wirklich 1200 Microsoft Points wert?“ Zu diesem Preis bekommt ihr schließlich auch hochkarätige Arcade Titel. Wer als Fan von Call of Duty die Frage ohne zu zögern mit einem lauten „Ja!“ beantworten kann, der kann sich diese Spielerweiterung gerne gönnen. Auch Hardcore-Fans der Serie und Multiplayer-Süchtlinge sollten dieses Angebot nicht auslassen. Den anderen Spielern unter euch empfehlen wir aber eher auf eine Preissenkungen zu warten oder notfalls auf das Stimulus Pack zu verzichten.

This is Infinity Ward preaching to the converted, and they just so happen to have a lot of dedicated followers. But a developer of their pedigree could (and should) be able to do so much better than more of the same: where are the new modes, titles, emblems or even spec-ops levels, for instance? It accomplishes what it sets out to do, but the Stimulus Package feels closer to a shot of caffeine than it does adrenaline.

Hvis du lever og ånder for Modern Warfare 2, vil du sikkert ignorere prisen og slippe slanterne for lidt fornyelse, og få ugevis af underholdning ud af pakken. Men det vidste du godt, inden du læste anmeldelsen, ikke?

So, while on paper this is an expensive set, it seems a little churlish to set about Infinity Ward for its pricing. You'll already know whether the set is worth the money to you, and for those who are investing scores of hours into the game every week, the Stimulus Package will live up to its name, revitalising the game once again by providing new scope to learn, master and dominate. But these are only new playgrounds to mess about in: the systems and wider structure remain the same, along with some of the balancing problems that exist there. For players hoping for a more radical overhaul of Modern Warfare 2's admittedly distinguished multiplayer, this will not be stimulus enough.

Lo Stimulus Pack di Modern Warfare 2 è un contenuto esclusivo decisamente esoso in rapporto a quanto viene effettivamente offerto. Ben 1200 punti Microsoft (circa 14.90€ su PS3 e PC) non sarebbero un problema per nessuno se a questi corrispondesse effettivamente un "surplus" di valore per il gioco. Il DLC, però, offre solo tre mappe inedite e due recuperate dal precedente capitolo, che soffrono di un senso troppo forte di deja-vu per molti giocatori. Le tre ambientazioni inedite, pur valide, non brillano invece per originalità e innovazione, rappresentando semplicemente un diversivo per chi volesse avere un po' di varietà in più nella normale "Playlist" di gioco. Il voto finale, quindi, fa media tenendo conto delle aspettative sia dei fan sfegatati che degli utenti meno esigenti.

We here at MSXbox-World are still tightly crossing our fingers for more DLC for Modern Warfare 2, but rather some new co-operative Spec-Ops missions. The Stimulus Package is no doubt over-priced and is somewhat of a missed opportunity, for the price we would have liked a bit more content for our buck, something let's say as a similar package to TreyArch's Call of Duty: World at War, with new maps and a co-operative mission or two, which in the case of Modern Warfare 2, Spec-Ops seems like the obvious choice here. Taking into account the amount of content and pricing of 1200MSP, we've given the Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package a respectable Overall Rating of 6.5/10. Modern Warfare 2 veterans will surely be picking the Stimulus Package up, and it does what it sets out to do, in giving players some new, well laid out maps to do battle on.

Quella di EA, almeno, è una mossa che tende a premiare chi sceglie di investire sul nuovo, cosa che con lo Stimulus Pack non accade: nel caso di Activision, purtroppo, i giocatori pagano sempre, sia che abbiano comprato il gioco a prezzo intero, sia che lo abbiano acquistato usato.

Este aumento en el coste de la descarga nos hace bajar la nota general de este pack Estímulo, aunque dejando claro que a buen seguro habrá una legión de aficionados a Modern Warfare que sabrán aprovechar estos cinco nuevos mapas hasta conseguir amortizar su inversión. En este caso más que nunca, la decisión final depende sobre todo del uso que pensemos darle a la vertiente online del título de Infinity Ward. Lo que es cierto es que si se hubiese mantenido el precio de anteriores packs se habría convertido en una descarga obligada para todos aquellos que disfruten con los disparos online por el buen diseño de cada localización y la amplia variedad de soluciones jugables que aporta a MW2. -Buen diseño en general en cada localización-Cuidado extremo en la propuesta jugable de todos los mapas-Un generoso número de mapas
