Jan 28, 2013The Crimson Map Pack is a solid addition to Halo 4's multiplayer map lineup. The three maps included provide a nice variation in style and size as well as preferred game types for each. Although they are quality additions, none of them pack that special feeling that will make them an "instant classic" for the series.

And one has to wonder how much effect Spartan Ops has on this. I love Halo 4 and am thankful that it is back on the map. What makes me hopeful for the continued success and replayability of this franchise is that MGS' 343 is open to bringing new things into the game through DLC and free updates that can keep interest, new enemies being one of them.
