    Here's the marketplace listing.

    Honestly not sure if I'm going to get it, as much as I love this game...
    Another $10 for a few maps that I'll never play and some chassis that everyone and their momma will be using. The only people that seem to play anymore are either so good that you don't stand a chance or their glitching/modding their skills and kill streaks.

    I was hoping for a lower price. I think that's a little steep for less content than last time. I will probably pass on this and see if it ever drops in price.

    Aren't there 5 maps this time?

    Doesn't that imply more content as there were only 4 last time? Or am I mis-remembering?

    No you're right

    DLC 1 - 5 characters, 4 maps
    DLC 2 - 2 characters, 5 maps

    I mainly bought the first DLC for the characters so this new one doesn't have a lot of value for me.

    Maps > characters, content wise. All they are is remixes of existing abilities anyway :/

    The bad part about new maps is that the map selection is random. With the new characters I know that I'll get to use them, with the maps it's definitely less frequent so I don't feel that I always get my money's worth out of the maps. But that's just me.

    Yeah, DLC maps are fucking shitty in the grand scheme of things. Only Bungie and IW do it right by creating playlists that use those specific maps.

    Just finished messing around. All the new maps except Horizon are honestly kinda meh so far. Zeta and Dead End are pretty cool, though. Really useful in Escalation.

    Downloaded the pack this morning and did some solo messing around on the Escalation maps. Static is OK, didn't see much of it. Pulse was much more challenging. I won't spoil it for anyone but I didn't expect that level of opposition on Wave 1!

    I really don't like Metropolis at all, because due to the name I was expecting a big sprawling city, not just one in the background. I do like Horizon, because said "horizon" is Omega Supreme tearing apart a city. The third one is also rather nice, like a much more spread out version of Fortress. Zeta has grown on me quite a bit, but unfortunately you cannot replicate Dead End's colors at all in multiplayer.

    Yeah, Halo does a lot of things this game should do.

    About the price, remember that Halo charges the same price for only 3 maps. We're getting 5 maps and two characters. Seems like a good deal to me.

    Agreed.

    Frankly, if I were still in the game, I find this a way better deal. New maps alter the playing feild and lead to different situations. New characters don't, at least not to the same level.

    But I'll be skipping it. With Reach coming I'll barely play it.
