A nice map, although I feel that the AI was a little predictable this is not at all a major fault, this happens on a great number of maps, including those included in the game. Very enjoyable for human vs human play as there is plenty of room to build your bases. A simple four player map, one player to a corner. Seems to be equally well suited to Free for all or team play.
Although there are a lot of oil derricks on the map this does not disrupt the balance of the game. All derricks are roughly equidistant from each player, and due to the lack of much in the way of supply docks/piles (2 per player) are essential if a long game is desired. There is also a small oil refining plant (note not the tech building type) that has four derricks within it in the central island, which adds to the character of the map.
Each of the four bases has a pair of access ramps leading up, although these do hinder attacking they aid base defence, Swings and Roundabouts I guess, depends on what you prefer, one ramp in each base is fitted out with a bunker.

Careful on the installation though. This does not follow the normal installation rules. Unzip straight to the C drive.
