Halo 3 Legendary Map Pack April 17, 2008

Posted by Matthew in Halo 3, Xbox 360.

Available now from the Live Marketplace for 800 points. I’ve spent some time with them so far and here are my thoughts. First up is Blackout:

Its a remake of Lockout from Halo 2 and since I haven’t played that at all I don’t have any idea what has changed. There is a large open helipad in the middle, multiple levels with confined rooms and walkways – the highest level is a good sniping spot.

There is even a basketball hoop to throw grenades through if you get bored. It is probably the best looking level of the three. Next up is Avalanche:

Remake of Sidewinder from Halo. It’s basically two big open spaces with a small enclosed area in the middle. Getting around the level is easy due to the man-cannons dotted about the place and the selection of vehicles outside your base.

Not a bad level but due to its size it is best suited to games with large numbers of players, seems like it would be a laugh on Rocket Race too. Now the final map, Ghost Town:

A totally new map built from the ground up, it takes place in a ruined compound of sorts with lots of rubble inside and out to use as cover. Multiple levels in the open-top buildings and a lot of good sniping spots.

Seems like it would be a pretty good map for Shotty Snipers or Infection-type games, which I generally hate. So far I would probably have to say that Blackout is my favourite of the three. To finish, here is a nice picture of me on said level energy-swording some poor soul in the face, knocking them over the side and winning the game for my team with the final kill:
