If you are familiar with Tournament Arena, then you will enjoy this map, although it does not quite have the detail of tournament arena it still has the pressured 1v1 play style.
Detail: The textures used on this map arn't done to perfection but do not hurt the eyes either, since it is a winter map the lighting could have been a bit dimmer to give the atmosphere more of a eerie feel to it. The minimap is well made and works perfectly and the AI is also fully functional providing a good 1v1 training ground.
Gameplay: You start with a patch of green tiberium and can choose to expand to the blue tiberium, which is held in the opposite corner that has two garrisonable buildings for early game protection, there is also a very large patch of green tiberium in the center, which becomes a hot zone early-mid game. Below and above the center tiberium there are two tiberian spikes with garrisonable structures on each side, which can be captured early game for a financial advantage. You can choose to turtle or expand on this map, although it is advised to expand.
Overall this is a map that provides a good training ground for new tactics and factions, don't be afraid to give it try.
