Longbow has a lot of potential, but its kind of boring. There are only ghosts and warthogs on that map. Nothing really to make the team camping up top sweat if the the other team goes and retrieves it because it spawns elsewhere.
Domination is another story though, its a lot of fun for that.
I really do not understand the distaste for Exile. That is an incredible map.
Indoor and outdoor zones, multiple levels of verticality, oodles of vehicles (Gauss íHog, Ghost, Banshee, and Scorpion tank), all wrapped up in a loop tailor made for fast routes and even faster Killtaculars Ė Exile represents the best of the Halo 4 maps. And itís not just because itís shiny and new; it plays really well, in pretty much any mode you throw at it. A perfect map for CTF, Dominion, Extraction, and Slayer, Exile looks, feels, and plays like classic Halo. Itís at once new and immediately familiar, offering a balanced battlefield for vehicular Spartan slaughter and on-foot shenanigans aplenty. --- Awaiting: Bioshock Infinite, SW 1313, Last of Us, Watchdogs, Pikmin 3, GTA V
