I'm still quite eager to play this but map being too empty is bad news. And you could definitely tell they were trying to be as nice as possible in that review.
Surely the empty map is to be expected really, given the time period/location? It would be more odd if there were towns and villages everywhere.
And you can fast-track your way between destinations from camps so there's no need to traverse the plains every time you want to go somewhere.
