It was a lot easier to find Usama on this map than in real life :).
Balance is OK, but it's quite an easy ride to where Usama is hiding.
Map design is kind of boring. Just desert and steppe (I guess I can't expect snow and grasslands to exist in afghanistan, but it's still boring...). It's not that detailed either.
I've played both better and worse maps.
If you have dreams about using the spell "Vaporize" on Usama bin laden, maybe you'll like this one....
