Review by cinereaste on 4/23/2013.
I like the visuals a lot in this map. The ships and planes are a nice touch; the map is well-drawn; it's generally clear which territories belong to a particular bonus.

I don't like how some connections are visually confusing. For instance, it looks like Vestlandet should connect to Central Scotland, but it actually connects to Northern Scotland. Sardinia connects to Provence, but why isn't that indicated visually?

There are many missing links. Examples: Central Greece-Aegean Islands, Krasnodar-Stalingrad, Staraya Russa-Ryazan, and Banat-Pleven.

The bonuses don't seem well balanced. The territory of Stalingrad alone nets 6 armies, which is the same as all of Poland which has nine territories.

Good gameplay. Only problems are the few historic inaccuracys and the fair few missing links around the greece area.

Needs more small bonuses. If unlucky initial location, you have little chance to recover.

Good, but is best on random selection. Being able to pick Stalingrad, Berlin, and London at the start is overpowered.

Review by T. S. Eliot on 2/19/2015.
A nonsensical fantasy romp through WWII's European Theatre designed by a presumed madman, or perhaps a cartographer for whom logic is a foreign affair. Bogus bonuses include Italy's 15 territories yielding 14 armies while Spain's 16 territories yield only 9. The worst, though, is the 39 (!) discrete units composing the Soviet Union for a measly bonus of 22, with Stalingrad, one of those territories, worth a paradoxical 6 armies. If you find any of this the least bit confusing please consult another map.

The only thing that made confuse, was the bonus for the allies needing to have gibraltar

Good map, hard to play, hard to earn boni. Best is to play in teams and fix the starting points

It is a good map but some territories that are connected in the real-life europe, there are unconnected by the same way some territories that would be connected are unconnected, however I enjoyed this map's graphics. They are adequate for a WWII-map

Not my favourite map, but for once this is really a nice change for once, with all the europe maps! It has some good spots, bad spots, and really surprising when you are used to "Rise of Rome" or "Europe big".

Would love if people would create more with this map cause I have been seeing far too much "Rise of Rome" in the last weeks ( or I am blacklisted by to many game creators ;) ).

It has no buggs, as far as I can tell, and is fun with different distribution mode ( random or manual, wastelands... )

In my view not so great for FFA, especially when booted players turn into AI.

Nice bottlenecks and mean cities ( Berlin, London, Stalingrad)

I enjoy the map a lot. It offers a lot of various paths to victory. My only quibble is that the AI could be a little more aggressive.

Review by NotEliTanenbaum on 6/3/2014.
This is hands down the worst map I have ever played on in my five years on Warlight.net. First, many territories that appear adjacent on the map actually connect with one another (e.g. Krasnodar does not connect with Stalingrad). Second, neither the bonuses nor the megabonuses make sense. The megabonus "Allies" is not positionally sound because it includes Gibraltar, which is unreachable from any of the other adjacent territories in the bonus. Furthermore, save for the Stalingrad bonus, there are no small bonuses within the USSR megabonus, which makes building a position within Russia impossible. It also makes no sense to have both a "Soviet Union" bonus and a "USSR" bonus. The "Axis" bonus is also historically inaccurate because it does not include many countries that were part of the Axis. In sum this is a truly terrible map. I have never before felt motivated to make a review of a map, but this one was so truly awful that I felt obligated to do so.

Review by [NL] Pokertje on 7/21/2014.
Stalingrad, London and Berlin are way overrated as bonus.
To many missing links between territories. And there's a link between Cote d Azur and Sardinie, which is not plotted on the map.
Overall to many errors for an average rating.

Berlin/Stalingrad/London bonuses should be lowered. This map sucks for auto picks (luck) and manua picks is also too much about luck.

1 or 2 income/city would be better.

Review by Dune on 9/1/2015.
An enjoyable map, could use some tweaking to make it more balanced. The USSR, for eample is a huge area to hold before getting a bonus, splitting it into several smaller bonues would be more fair. Also, Central Greece does not connect to Aegean Isalnds, despite sharing a border. Also, Sub Carpathian does not connect to Opolskie, although it does connect the other way?

Thanks for the map!

A great map, but the bonus you get for italy makes it a slightly unbalanced - not enough to drop a star

Great for history buffs. Cities make it very important to check bonuses. Some areas lack balance due to them being too vast historically, but still an excellent map

If you capture the territories of the Third Reich (Germany, Austria, Hungary and Csechoslovakia) in early stages, there's no stopping you from winning.
