Reviews and Problems with Halo: Reach - Defiant Map Pack
Showing 1-3 of 3

Summary: I loved the Noble Map Pack so much but I was disappointed with this one: Condemned - 5/10 - Looks like a great map and is built well but plays very badly. The map is confusing and it turns into a chase around the map. The only redeeming feature is the spectacular view that one of the windows has. Highlands - 4/10 - Looks like a superb map that you might find on Halo 2 but in fact turns into a frenzy around the teleporters.
Summary: This is a well balanced map pack with very interesting maps. Highlands for example is a big map which reminded me on Halo:CE and it is just a beautiful looking map. Condemned is also very interesting as the map is one a destroyed space station. This map is built for small teams. The firefight map Unearthed is extremely engaging. Blowing up grunts with fuel rod guns on this map has never been more satisfying. With this map pack, I know Halo is in good hands at 343.
Summary: Reach was one of the biggest and best shooters released in 2010. After more then half a year, I still find myself drawn to its multiplayer offering after flings with other shooters ( eg. Black Ops, Killzone 3, Crysis 2 etc.). Defiant offers up more of the same goodness. This time round, you get two multiplayer maps (Highlands and Condemned) and one firefight map (Unearthed). Highlands is a huge map designed for BTB and objective game types.
