The map is really well done. I enjoyed the chance to get acquainted with the Japanese Civ, which I rarely play. The only down side is that I wish the population limit was 200, because I would like to see a lot of samurai charging on the battlefield. This would be a good scenario for a newbie to intermediate, unless the difficulty level is increased. With the lower population limit - this scenario is a good exercise in how to make good efficient use of all your units and resources. If you're smart, you get enough breathing room to build a good strong army, and plan a really good strategy.
