EZG reviews Rite Map Packs – River Rapids
This map-pack is 35 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 16 pages of full-color map and 16 of the same as b/w.
So this would be a new gorgeous full color map with a gorgeous grid – so what is on this map? We get a river, full of dynamic-looking foam and different depths, with several large rocks jutting out of it and a short section of sands on both sides – at least up to the beaver dam that can be found in the upper third of the river – the river making its way through two massive breaches in the dam.
The maps come with a grid.
Water is hard to get right on maps and Tommi Salama creates water that is gorgeous – whether the dam, the jutting rocks – this map is beautiful indeed and the pdf comes fully bookmarked, which is a definite plus. This map-pack is gorgeous – Tommi Salama can be considered the heir apparent of map legend Jonathan Roberts if this pdf is any indicator. Now, personally, I think a version sans grids (or with hex-grids) would have been nice to have, but all in all, that’s not enough to rate this down a whole star – hence, my final verdict will clock in at 4.5 stars, rounded up to 5 for the purpose of this platform.
