Carentan vs. Chinatown


Not too long ago, Activision released the first map pack for Call of Duty 4. In the map pack there was a map called Chinatown which was designed completely around the very popular Call of Duty 2 map called Carentan. I really loved the map Carentan I use to play it all the time on Call of Duty 2 and it is continued to be played across a lot of servers for the game. I am going to compare these two maps.

I think it was a great idea to keep the map virtually the same as the one before it. The hardcore Call of Duty 2 players will really enjoy this because they will be able to go in the same sniping and hiding spots that they were so familar with in Call of Duty 2. I find myself going in those hiding spots all of the time because I know the map so well.

Carentan Pros: The one great aspect of Carentan is the light. I think that this certain map was great in the day instead of the night because you have better vision and line on sight. I personally like this better because it is easier to take people down from across the map. Unless you are more of a camper or someone who sneaks around in the dark, then you might like the night time setting more. Carentan is a great map for long range gun battles in the streets and more sniping.

Chinatown Pros: Chinatown is great for the up close and personal guns. Most of the fighting is now done in the rooms of the houses (because it is dark) compared to the streets when it was a lighter map. It is also great for camping because it has so many small corners and places where you can hide to lay claymores. Chinatown is a great map for campers and people who like up close battles in buildings.

Bottom line: If you are more into snipers, Carentan is  great for you. If you are into camping, you would like Chinatown. I know this doesn’t really connect with many of our readers, but it is something that a lot of Call of Duty players think about. These are all just strictly opinions so please post a comment of what you think of the two maps and which one you like better. Even if you haven’t played Carentan from Call of Duty 2 tell me what you think about Chinatown.
