Best and Worst Maps for Each Halo Game

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.

Halo CE:

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

Halo 3:

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.
Worst: Gemini

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

Favourites:

CE/PC: Death Island, or Infinity.

Halo 2: Waterworks.

Halo 3: Standoff, or Sandtrap.

Halo Reach: Highlands, or Zealot.

Least favourites:

CE/PC: Derelict

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.

Halo CE:
Favorite - Damnation
Least Favorite - Battle Creek

Halo 2:
Favorite - Just about every single map.
Least favorite - Beaver Creek

Halo 3:
Favorite - Construct, Guardian, or Ghost Town.
Least Favorite - Isolation

ODST:
Favorite - Last Exit and Security Zone
Least Favorite - Chasm 10

Reach:
Favorite - Penance
Least Favorite - Pinnacle or any other map that wasn’t on the Anniversary DLC.

I never cared for the Creek :stuck_out_tongue:

Yay, I see I’m not the only only that doesn’t like Isolation.

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.
