The Rift is a three player map that contains high cliffs, small valleys, and fantastic detail. The rift has these giant cliffs that make everything on them look small. They are detailed very well and conceived excellently. The only bad thing here is that
The map is set in a desert environment, but don't let that fool you, that map is filled with detail. There are many choke points and flanks in the map which also make strategies change. There is stupendous texture detail on the cliffs, and the way they match the ground texture is unbelievable. Also, there are a couple of tiberian spikes around the map, which really makes the map more believable in the sense that since it is a desert theme, it would have some sort of spike. The map has small tiberian deposits everywhere so you have to spread out quite quickly, blue and green tiberium both make appearances here.
Overall, you should get this map. It has many choke points, flanks, detail, and is, above all, fun! The only thing I could find bad or annoying about the map is that you might not be able to see or select your units because of the huge cliffs everywhere, but the map is supposed to be like that.

The Rift (3 Player CnC3-Map) Skirmish/Multiplay
An asymmetrical map designed for skirmish play, but should work fine for multiplayer, too.
It features a large rift filled with tiberium surrounded by some excavation bases. The Landscape
is jagged and rough, with many chokepoints.
