Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - Arguably the best Call of Duty game and still my personal favorite COD.
Call of Duty 5: World at War - For me it was like old-school COD2 but with the awesome perks and customizing of COD4. Absolutely amazing, second only to COD4.
Call of Duty 6: Modern Warfare 2: Shit
Call of Duty 7: Black Ops - It was pretty good actually
Call of Duty 8: Modern Warfare 3: Bull-fucking-shit terrible game
Call of Duty 9: Black Ops II: Meh
Call of Duty 3 is seriously under-rated. It was way better than anything released after Modern Warfare 1. It's because it is the one and only console exclusive CoD. The other games are shitty because they have none of the shit that made CoD3 so great - wide open maps, vehicles, FACTION SPECIFIC WEAPONS, etc. etc. Methinks you ought to play it again and re-assess yourself.

When you say "Maze" maps, are you referring to close quarters with many access points so you can't cover everything? I really am not sure what you're talking about.
The Black Ops 2 map design is definitely poor. I really wish they would have taken successful maps from the previous Call of Dutys and "modernized" them for the futuristic tone of Black Ops 2. Take 3 of Call of Duty 2's best maps, 3 of COD4's, and 3 of World at War's. 9 maps ain't so bad, and they could add a few newer ones on top of old Black Ops ones like Nuketown.
Okay, remember the maps in CoD4? How big they were, right? And now think of the one in the container boxes. I can't remember the name but I don't care because it was so shitty. Anyway, on the PC with 32 players it was absolutely broken, but the noobs on the Xbox liked it because it allowed them to essentially farm xp. Ok, now fast forward a couple of years. What's happened? All the maps are literally tinier than EVEN THE TINIEST F'ING COD1 map. They are all hallways, going around in a circle, so that all the enemies are either A) in front of you, or B) behind you. It's literally the most mind numbing bullshit I've ever seen in video games -- they want it to be nothing more then sprinting forward, shooting at something, and then getting killed from behind BECAUSE THATS THE ONLY OTHER PLACE YOU CAN BE. They ought to be ashamed of themselves and rename their studio "Whory Prostitutes who suck dick for money" because that is pretty much what they are. CoD is in my mind now nothing more than an XP-collecting challenge.
I'm glad I came to this thread cause I was considering getting this game just cause I'm curious. But after thinking about it, NOPE.
