I gave each map a score and then got an average for the map mack score. Overall a superb map pack:
Battle Canyon/ Beaver Creak - 9/10 - An amazing close quarters map that has halo written all over it. Outstanding.
High Noon/ Hang 'em High - 5/10 - Lets the map pack down. The original was so good so why did they change it so much? Still a good map though.
Damnation/ Penance - 7/10 - A good map but fairly average compared to the others.
Ridgeline/ Timberland - 8/10 - A classic Big Team map that is still great.
Solitary/ Prisoner - 9/10 - An incredible close quarters map that plays brilliantly.
Instillation 04 - 8/10 - A good firefight map that is built well.
Headlong/ Breakneck - 10/10 - The only Halo 2 map here and you can understand why. Was superb then and still is. The best Halo map ever.… Full Review »
These maps are excellent, and feel me with a sense of wonder as I experience classic Halo maps. However, why isn't Blood Gulch in here? That's the map everyone would play at skool when the teachers weren't looking! Good map pack and worth the cash, but disappointing without Blood Gulch.… Full Review »
In honor of the 10 year anniversary of the very first Halo game Halo: Combat Evolved this DLC pack has been released with 6 new multiplayer maps from the original Halo games, new classic based playlists, and a fun new Firefight mission, all very well made but not without there flaws, the multiplayer maps are fantastic and gave me an instant rush of nostalgia playing on them in new better graphics, although there are two maps that I didn't like then and don't like now, and the new playlists are fun but I have one or two complaints, like the fact that I was never reminded of playing the original Halo, they just seem like Reach without the new features, but I still see myself going back to them every now and then, and the new Firefight mission is my favorite so far the map is awesome and is easily the best part of the DLC and what I will be spending most of my time on, although it does have a flaw they added AI controlled ODST to fight beside you, sounds great right? the problem is there apparently pacifists as I have never once seen them fire a single shot, I guess there just there for looks, I know like it seems like I'm hating on this DLC but I actually really like it, you can get it free if you purchase a new copy of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, but even if you don't it's definitely worth the 800 Microsoft point asking price, and it's more maps for Halo: Reach so even with it's flaws what's not to like? I highly recommend.… Full Review »
