This pack is worth downloading for negke's map alone. It features highly original gameplay, and the way it evokes the theme ("Autumn") with a particular event is brilliant -- and subtle, and very easy to miss. Highly recommended (if you enjoy nonstandard gameplay).

As for the rest:

Starbuck's map does not seem to follow the theme, but even so, it is my second favourite. It is a simple base map, and very enjoyable. Recommended.

sm103generic1, sm103zwiffle and sm102generic (I'm deliberately leaving out the underscores so that Markdown does not italicize my text) are all decent speedmaps, although I did not find any of them particularly memorable (and Zwiffle's map is just a little too hard for my taste).

As for adherence to the theme: sm103generic1 and sm103zwiffle both use what can probably be described as an autumnal palette, whereas sm102generic follows the theme “Geocomp” from sm102_pack, where it was accidentally not included.

Oh, and sm103generic2 ... well, it's not really a map as such (you'll see what I mean).

Not much autumm like besides the colours, but good maps nonetheless.

Generic: sm102's one is a nice example in how to make a good experience with a few brush modules. Sm103's firs one: Quite compact, simple, and solid. A pity about the Shambler. Sm103's second: quite nice and short.

Neg!ke: Quite balanced and not too hard for this type of gameplay.

Starbuck's feel more like a turtlemap. It is quite solid even if not that memorable.

Zwiffle: simple map with decent even if bland and easy gameplay sometimes. Stands out in layout and lighting. About the second big group of Hknights, all i can advice about it is, save your cells for that point to survive.
