CoD: WWII's The Resistance DLC is a strong start to the DLC packs for WW2. While the highlight is certainly The Darkest Shore zombie map, the other four map additions are certainly welcome, and offer some much needed variety to the multiplayer mode.
In the first extensive DLC release of Sledgehammer Game’s Call Of Duty: WWII, the developers spoil us with three new multiplayer maps (including a remake of a classic map from a previous successful COD instalment), a new class division to utilise in said maps, a brand new chapter in the Nazi Zombies mode and a new War Mode map for players to enjoy the more narrative-driven game mode on.
Call of Duty: WWII – The Resistance is a solid foundation to build future content on and sets a high bar for all future DLC related to the fourteenth installment of the franchise. This is what players want to see when it comes to downloadable content — gameplay, maps, weapons and an evolution of the original experience seen in the base game. Everyone should be looking forward to where the DLC goes next and, of course, how the story of zombies continues to develop.
The Resistance DLC adds needed map variety to multiplayer and introduces another fun Nazi Zombies map. The tighter, dense map Valkyrie gives the new Resistance Division a chance to shine with plenty of close combat opportunities, while Anthropoid offers snipers space to work their magic. Even though Operation Intercept is a new map for the wonderful War Mode, it feels like a known quantity with its repeated objectives from previous operations. On the other hand, the new Zombies map Darkest Shore has plenty of challenging (if sometimes convoluted) puzzles to uncover.
At the moment there's a Resistance event running, with 24/7 moshpits for the DLC maps, unique supply drops and featured modes like Prop Hunt available for a limited time, so the community is pretty heavily active across the entire game at the moment, making it an ideal time to dive back in and take advantage of all the double XP.
Interesting mix of new options but little improvements over the original CoD: WWII formula. A nice piece of DLC but without any important surprises.

The Resistance DLC introduced two new maps to multiplayer mode that has the finest design and conveys the classic war atmosphere in a precise way, n addition a third map that is a re-introduction of one of the most famous MW3 maps, while continuing to expand through the largest and most beautiful map for Survival mode the Darkest Shore in the the game So far, while Operation Intercept has eliminated the mistakes of previous tasks but has not been as diverse and exciting.

When assessing these packs I try to rate the sum of their parts, and more often than not, the A-game of the zombie team elevates these DLCs. Call of Duty: WWII: The Resistance is another one of those times where the extra bits upstage the main attraction of the maps.
"The Resistance" lacks some kind of the "Wow!" factor. Fans should appreciate fresh content they longed for. However, it's hard to find any part of this DLC with the quality higher that the usual Call of Duty level.

Call of Duty: WWII - The Resistance: DLC Pack 1 should appeal to the dedicated troops that have already spent serious time in the trenches and are maybe growing slightly weary of circling around the Flak Tower and the U.S.S. Texas. Sure, three fairly decent(ish) maps do feel like short change but the particularly strong Operation Intercept does at least go some way to redressing that balance. Putrefaction fans are also well catered for and should enjoy bloodying their swimming trunks on the Darkest Shore. Something for everybody, then... Viva la Resistance!
