If there's ever going to be a beauty contest for maps, this map should be nominated. Quasar22 really did his best to create this one and it really looks great and beautiful, but I'm afraid this map won't be a good choice for massive Deathmatch games or whatever :(. Why? Well, there are a few problems with the map.
The FPS is very bad at some places and really is a pain when trying to hit someone. I don't really know why the FPS is that bad at some places, perhaps some more advances mappers can explain it ;) If they know a solution, the author might try it to make this map better playable.
Secondly some places are very dark. It's not as worse as with the FPS, but it can still be anoying. This is a bit easier to fix though.
Now over to the layout of the map, it's based on Jordan but Quasar22 gave it a little twist ;) With the use of some costum textures he created a very nice map to see. After seeing the stock textures all the time, it was time for something new and I think the author agreed. There's also a new sky texture.
All I can suggest is try the map, I hope the lag caused by the FPS isn't that worse as with me. Enjoy.
