These maps are not VT ready, none of them have dimensions that allow for an easy grid to be laid over them. One even has different grid positions for inside and outside. A disappointing purchase.

Three very nice maps are included in this pack. I have to say they are VERY interesting tactically speaking. All three maps, the Keep, Atrium, and Baths, are situated like a first-person shooter multiplayer map. Each side is balanced with minor variance between them to make it interesting. The maps are very high quality with great artwork. They are quite large, so you have plenty of room for your group to fight their way across and utilize the landscape. The only thing I would love is premade files for MapTool or other virtual tabletops. It definitely helps me out. If you use only printouts, this is a great option. If you use virtual tabletops, it'll just take a bit of work if you want to import it and size it so the grids line up. Oh, they do have grids already, so that's taken care of.

All in all a good set of maps.

These maps are exactly what the title says (For those who failed to read it, "HI-RES BATTLEMAP PACK"). They do this job quite well, being at respectable dimensions (not quite what I'd call high-resolution for printing, but high-resolution for on-screen if you don't zoom in too far). They'd work with a virtual tabletop, probably, assuming it didn't fuss too much about resolution and scaling on their grid (if they have one), in which case you may have to mess around with it.

It's good, and I like it a lot. The one thing I do feel could hurt it is that it is an Unreal-Tournament map styled pack, so you can't get too much normal story-driven play, but you could have a ton of fun with it in a competitive session, or as an courtyard or whatnot.

That said, high-res screams that it's at a print-ready dpi, which it isn't really. I mean, you could, but I'd have gripes with doing so. It's better than a lot of stuff, but it still just feels like they were afraid to burn more than 3 megabytes on a map and were religiously trying to reduce file size at cost of quality. Speaking of which- file formats. I love jpeg as much as the next guy, so I try to burn it and throw it away as much as possible. Seriously bad format. But better than the gif one of the maps is inexplicably in. If it were in .png format, my gripes would be pointless, but I'm curious as to the choices for the format.

The quality is decent, but there are a few underlying issues that hurt this product when the time comes to rate it. It's just not high enough resolution to advertise as being such, and the formats used are questionable.
