'Map of Caucasus' by burn22 is a multiplayer scenario that is perhaps best played in a 1v1 or even 2v2 environment.
PLAYABILITY: The author has given this map many notable features, and one which players will enjoy in an online experience. The cliff lines depicting the Caucasus Mountains, which offer the only entrance to either half of the map lest the player take the ocean, will be hotly contested for much of the game until one side or the other folds. Resources are also placed in these zones meaning players will need to quickly rush into the centre for supremacy. 3.0
BALANCE: The author here hasn't actually placed any town centre or villagers down, but this is an easy remedy in the map editor if you are deciding on playing this scenario online. That aside, the map itself features an abundance of resources on both sides of the map as well as ample fish in the two oceans. Quite a few wolves exist so players will need to be very wary when exploring with their villagers. 4.0
CREATIVITY: The map design really looks the part of the Caucasus on the mini-map and features some notable creativity and thought. The good technical design also means players will have a number of points to attack or defend in what will be a hotly disputed map. Overall this is a great depiction of the Caucasus that fits seamlessly into the world map scene. 3.0
MAP DESIGN: The map design is quite good and is an excellent depiction of the Caucasus region, with cliff lines centring the map a focus for defence and two flanking oceans - the Black Sea and Caspian Sea - a viable source of food. There are many creative instances that breathe life into the design while resources are plentiful. Terrain mixing is done minimally but effectively. 4.0
STORY/INSTRUCTIONS: The scenario essentially works as a random map. There are no hints, instructions or background story, but none are needed either. 1.0
CONCLUSION: Despite the relatively low rating, it is the map design that makes this particular download quite special and one well worth downloading for the online scene.
In a sentence - Well designed and executed, 'Caucasus' presents players with a good online experience.
