So true. So true.
Personally, I judge maps by two standards: the main mission and a place were additional content can take place (contracts, escalations, elusive targets), which, to be honest, is where most of us now spend our time - especially contracts! Again, it’s a personal opinion, but I was not a fan of the main missions in Bangkok (too restrictive), Colorado (forced to use the stupid tornado shelter exit), and Hokkaido (no loadout until level 20). However, Colorado is now one of my all time favourite maps for additional content; I still love the adrenaline rush from trying to navigate that map suit only. What makes Paris and Sapienza so great is that they tick both boxes: the main missions were superb and they are just perfect for additional content. There is nothing those maps can do to disappoint.
