albeit how awesome they make it to look and may be, 10$ is too much for 2 multi maps and one firefight.

I'd have to agree with you there.

Normally, I'd agree with $10 for 3 maps being too much... but I play SO MUCH Halo it's sick. And I'm not alone. I'll very gladly pay $3.33 for each map- knowing that I'll be playing this game for years to come. That's not a hollow statement, I played Halo 3 for years, same with Halo 2 and 1 way back when. And after seeing how beautiful these maps are, it's not even a matter that I have to think about. The Noble Map Pack is a great addition that I can't wait until it's open to everybody just so I can play those maps more often- but these look even better. I wish they'd left the one map dark! And I really like that waterfall going OVER the hallway. I guess they know what's best after playing it a lot, but those maps looked awesome in the preview build, dammit!

whoa there spartan, this isn't 2005-2007 when you paid to play maps earlier and it was all peachy in the multiplayer kingdoms. People who are cheap bastards at best just need to save points for a deal of the week promotion, because if i can remember, I had all mp maps of Halo3 beacuse it was offered in the Halo: ODST package, not beacuse it became open to anyone.

And I agree with you there about the Win levels in these maps, but money is money and less maps to choose from is less content in the eyes of a player.

Give me more forge pieces Bungie, then we'll talk about 800MSP.

@ JohnC: I admit, I must have gotten a little lost in your flow there. From what I'm able to comprehend... you're saying $10 is too much because it's only 3 maps and it's not 2005-2007 any longer. I've been a Halo gamer for a LONG, long, LONG time and it's always been $10 for 3 maps. I think at ONE time back in Halo 2 they did $10 for 4 maps, but one was a remake. And as far as all the maps coming free with ODST- that was just a SWEET ASS deal. If you remember, Bungie used to give away ALL their maps after about 6 months. I think the ODST was just their way of doing that again (they did do that with the "3" maps too... but for those that weren't online).
So as far as 3 for $10- that's typical fair with Bungie.

I bought the last map pack for $10 and thoroughly enjoyed it but no way I'm buying this one. For the huge amount of players like me that only play the competitive multiplayer $10 for 2 maps is rediculous. If they were smart they would've released two seperate packs- one with 2 competitive maps and one with 2 firefight maps. Sell each of those at $5.

    asdfg @KORNdog: Cinematic foliage. :) (18 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog The foliage looked like it was "running" at about 5fps. Looked weird as hell. (2 Hours ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg Combined with open world. (3 Hours ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg @Moonwalker: Agree about the jungle, was what looked best. Also agree about the foliage moving looked weird. But gameplay, characters, voice acting, shoehorned upgrade system, it's so generic. (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @asdfg: Some parts looked really good. Like when it morning comes and how the jungle looks. But the way foliage moves is odd though. Wish it was like Uncharted 4,haha. (3 Hours ago)
