With Halo 4 coming out I think it would be interesting to reflect on our favorite and least favorite maps from the rest of the series to give us a sense of where Halo 4’s map selection should be like and what they should stay away from.
I’ll start things off.
My favorite map is Battle Creek
My least favorite is Chiron TL-34
Halo 2: ( going to be hard because I loved so many)
My favorite is Lockout, ( Or relic for btb)
My least favorite is backwash
My favorite map is The Pit
My least favorite is Isolation
Halo Reach: ( going to be tough because I hated so many)
My favorite map was Highlands ( or Tempest)
My least favorite was anything that shipped with the game other than Reflection or Spire.
( DLC had some good maps)
take it away
Isolation from halo 3 reminded me of a massive colon. my friends and I called it the colonoscopy map.
CE: Fav - Damnation
Least fav- N/A
2: Fav - Lockout/Headlong
Least Fav - N/A
3: Fav - Pit/Narrows
Least Fav - Isolation (Wasn’t even that bad)
Reach Fav - Zealot
Least Fav - Vast majority of them

Haha I too had trouble choosing one from Halo CE or 2. Just goes to show you how loved the maps were in those games.
in Halo 3 I didn’t hate Isolation, I just like the other maps more.
And with Reach I pretty much hated all the shipped maps, except for Spire because it was actually unique and Reflection because it was a remake.
Reach: Highlands and uncaged (should have a stone remake with stormy weather, vines shrubs and some grass with bushes).
The other maps were just overplayed and crappy forge maps, though I think uncaged is the best forge map.
Best for CE: Derelict
Worst: Battle Creek (Shows how great the maps were huh. Still was good, didn’t play as well as Beaver Creek though with the ladders and such). Also, I don’t consider Chiron TL-34 a real map.
Best for Halo 2: Lockout or Midship, can’t decide. Lockout Ball was the GOAT of gametypes, but Midship played flag, oddball, koth, assault, slayer, and FFA really really well.
Best for Halo 3: Heretic, but Guardian if remakes don’t count.
Worst: Snowbound (let’s all camp the caves, shall we?)
Best for Reach: Zealot without Sprint
Worst: Swordbase takes the cake by a landslide. Definately the worst map in the history of Halo.
Reach’s maps sucked. I mean the most played map (the cage) was a -Yoink!- forge map. They didnt build maps with the engine. they were lazy as fu- and didnt give a rats -Yoink-. They need engine built maps which i’m sure theyll do and they need to be fun and have sightlines and different ways of getting around the maps
CE/PC: Death Island, or Infinity.
Halo 2: Waterworks.
Halo 3: Standoff, or Sandtrap.
Halo Reach: Highlands, or Zealot.
Halo 2: Ivory Tower
Halo 3: Isolation
Halo Reach: Reflection and Tempest
I loved practically all the maps on halo 3.
I hated practically all the maps on halo reach. Even the old ones that were good, I started hating them because you’d be on them 8 times a night. I learned to hate forge world maps extremely quickly.

It was the only map in the entire game that I actually disliked. I could even tolerate Snowbound, but Isolation just sucked.
I’d still take it over most of the maps in Reach though.
