I only owned Combat Evolved and 2 before Halo 4, but heard that these maps are lacking compared to Halo 3 and Reach. Did I make a HUGE mistake by purchasing Halo 4 and should have picked up the other two instead?
Halo 2 had the most interesting maps that had some sort of unique attribute. Halo 3 had the best maps over all. Reach's were terribly, terribly lacking and Bungie should be ashamed of themselves. This ones maps are pretty cool, although its classic microsoft to withhold content and sell it later even though its already been made.
I am assuming they should release more maps with their Season Packs/Passes (whatever the hell those things are). Time will tell if there are more offered. I like most of the maps, just the variety is the problem. I guess on a positive note it will give me due practice for later installments/additions to Halo 4.
No map in this can compare to the size of some of Halo 3's maps, they were f***ing huge! Go and check out Sandtrap and Avalanche, those were the 2 biggest maps in Halo 3 and they are my absolute favourite maps.
