Halo has a legacy of fantastic maps.
Halo has had fantastic BtB maps like Headlong, Bloodgulch, and Waterworks
Intense 4v4 maps like Lockout, Gaurdian, and the pit.
And even Reach had some cool maps like The Spire, and Highlands.
Though I feel the majority of Halo 4’s maps should be new and have far less remakes than Reach. I do believe 2 maps should be remade.
I don’t think they should remake something like hang em high, or lockout because those maps have almost been in the game in one way or another. ( Though a variation of lockout would be cool similar top how gaurdian was conceived.) No when Halo 4 first launches its remakes need to be maps everyone enjoyed, but maybe ones that haven’t been used time and time again. ( aka Blood Gulch)
My picks are
Waterworks from Halo 2: Just 2 days ago I put in Halo 2 for nostalgia purposes. I played up to the heretic part in the campaign and decided to take a stroll down memory lane and go in to the multiplayer. After looking at that line up I realized just how terrible reach’s maps are. i don’t think there is a map in reach’s initial arsenal ( not DLC maps) that can touch anything Halo 2 had. Aside from reflection of course ( remake of ivory tower). Out of all of the fantastic maps in Halo 2 one caught my eye…waterworks. It has nowhere near the popularity of say lockout, baver creek, or coag. But I had more fun running through that map than I do playing most reach maps. Its layout, setting, and balance is exciting and fun.
The Pit from Halo 3: Though Halo 3 introduced a lot of great maps, my favorite has to be the pit. Its small and symetrical, and I love the layout. Also it has yet to be remade and is great for competitive games.
Those are my picks. If you agree please say so, If you have your own picks leave them below.
