    This is a weird thing. That first multiplayer map was the super tiny Shipment map from CoD4, only made bigger and the robot zombies map was from the MW2 singleplayer campaign. Also, did anyone notice ...

    Wasn't the Red Alert alternate timeline that russians went back in time and killed Hitler before he did anything and so WWII never happened?
