I have to admit, that when a product says, "Pay What You Want," many people read it as "Free." I read it as "Set your own price." That being said, I set a "fair" price for this product, and I was VERY happy with it.
The artwork is nothing short of amazing, and you feel like you could actually "touch" the sand, and lead footprints in it.
There are a couple little things, however, I would have liked to have seen done differently, but over all, this just comes down to personal preference.
1) I prefer a grid on my maps. This has one (using the PDF layers, which is fantastic), however, on page "K" (I believe), the grid is not there. It can be easily corrected using a pen and ruler, but it does take away from the overall aesthetics, because unlike many publishers that use heavy lines, or black lines, the grid is a dark tan, and doesn't take away from the map.
2) I prefer my tiles to be tiles, and completely interchangeable. This is an actual map, and is laid out as such. In the case of an actual set of "tiles," you should be able to align them and set them up modularly, customizing your game map.
These "negatives" are very inconsequential compared to the benefits of the tiles. I could list the artwork, colors and overall realism of this set as among the best released by any publisher.
Lord Zsezse has an infallible knack for delivering a gaming product that is awe inspiring. To say that I recommend this product is an understatement. I have purchased MANY of their products, and have never been disappointed.
