Countdown was an underrated map in my opinion. Obviously hemorrhage/blood gulch and all the other remakes (asylum, pinnacle, reflection (ivory tower is the second best map ever)). Spire/Boneyard are designed for invasion and really only play well on invasion. Sword base is bad for anything not called swat. Boardwalk isn't terrible, but it definitely isn't good. Powerhouse is meh. The cage is ok at times (it's the original version of lockout, and clearly the inferior version). Zealot is a bad version of midship, so you have my permission to bring back midship...
Didn't get the DLC, but they looked ok. I think Reach maps get a bad rap, but they definitely have some losers in the bunch. Halo 4's maps aren't anything special by comparison.
Only ones I would want to see back is Swordbase and Countdown. Spire if they put Invasion back in. Everything else was pretty much horrible or a remake. Other maps that should come back is Turf, The Pit, Guardian, Boarding Action, Chiron TL-34, and High Ground.
