: We absolutely need a little cutscene of the MC kicking a pebble down the
: shaft beyond all reason to show how very, very deep it is (I assume we
: can't survive the fall).

Wish it were SC MJ sometimes even though I played this first. HE would survive the fall. ;)

: We find the map and Cortana sees the control room inside a shrine...
: somewhere. I don't see it, but apparently it stuck out like a sore thumb
: to her.

Yeah. I always found that anticlimactic. all we get is a nice hologram of the ring, but no actual map, unlike the Ark's cartographer in Halo 3. The "shrine" looks more like a pyramid (neither Aztec nor Mayan) with a model shuttle on top where on one of its sections, you can hear Siege of Madrigal from Myth.

You have to nick a Banshee to reach it by grapping a camo pickup and legging it before the Elite beats you to it and/or the camouflage wears off.

: We take, in Cortana's words, "an aerial insertion from underground"
: route to the control room, because the ring is hollow with these
: underground "honeycombs." Next is Assault on the Control Room ,
: staring with I Would Have Been Your Daddy.

"I thought that the Covenant would have no idea as to the workings of the ring's circuitry, but their Engineers are clever cookies and we must Try Again elsewhere. I've got Foehammer to take us to find the Master Control Shrine now."

: I liked this map. It did a good job maintaining an illusion of open design, and we got to see more

: of what some of the technology inside the ring looks like, which I'm
: guessing is not covenant design, even though they know how it works.

The Anniversary version of this level feels even bigger, with random rocks and islands out to sea other than empty water and I think glimpses of continents too. More 3D looking ones anyway on the ring arch.
