    This new content pack grants players new ways to prove their dominance on the field of battle, and new environments to explore and master, becoming the ultimate weapon while playing Crysis 2 online.

    Included in the Retaliation Pack are four new maps, supporting all online multiplayer modes (Instant Action, Team Instant Action, Capture the Relay, Crash Site, and Extraction) as you battle the enemy online, armed with the Nanosuit 2. The maps included in this content pack are:

    - Transit: The Tidal wave that swept across the city brutally exposed the subway system when a giant sinkhole opened up. Yet Libertys light remains held aloft symbolising the victory of humanity over the alien invaders. This large battlefield is a snipers dream with encircling high ground surrounding the flooded landscape below. The subway tunnels provide opportunities for more brutal close range fighting and a welcome respite from the high powered scopes.

    - Shipyard: With the battle against the Ceph still raging, the Navy hastily put this ship in for repairs in this derelict shipyard, until the evacuation took away all the labour. With the area now abandoned, Marines and CELL now fight for the ships powerful weapons systems. The ship itself provides an advantageous view point, use its sheers size to get the drop on your enemies. Snipers have excellent lines of sight, but the hull of the ship provides plenty of cover.

    - Park Avenue: Park Avenue saw fierce fighting and the scars are still all too evident. This once bustling area was eerily quiet until now. Controlling the central bridge gives command over this battlefield but leaves you vulnerable to attack from all sides. Stealthy players can lurk at street level ready to ambush the unwary.

    - Compound: After the infection spread the last remaining survivors were evacuated to the mainland, leaving this CryNet outpost unmanned. On this large leafy night-time map be careful not to be exposed by searchlights. The control tower offers a great view of the surrounding area but the nano-glass walls prevent players from shooting in or out. Descend below the surface and follow the sewers to gain ground and assault enemies occupying fortified positions in the compound.

    Pleasant as it is to run amock through four new studies in ruined concrete, scuffed glass and gouged bedrock, we doubt the content injection will rouse this stumbling titan.

    Once again it's the overall too-high price that limits the fun. Four maps, mostly inspired by single player campaign scenarios, can't be a good bargain for 10 euros, leaving this choice only to the most hardcore fans.

    The maps are pretty good and varied, but there are a lot of frame rate problems. There's almost nobody playing Crysis 2 online anymore making this DLC just a little too pricey.

    In my opinion the best DLC so far. Looks like Treyarch finally realized presenting buyers with trailer size maps is not a good idea.There areIn my opinion the best DLC so far. Looks like Treyarch finally realized presenting buyers with trailer size maps is not a good idea.There are two mid-size maps (Drive-In and Hangar 18) and two big ones ( Silo and Hazard - which is a remake of popular map from World at War called Cliffside) all that plus new jungle oriented zombies level.Solid 8 from me because I'm still not Expand
