The map UI is sadly a step back from SoD1. I listened to the reasons given during the IGN streams and while there may have been a noble effort to try something new, sadly it didn't pay off.
The new maps show none of the terrain detail, the two tone brown on brown is unappealing and they don't really make much sense. I mean who makes maps like that?
Please can we have maps that show the terrain detail, so that they are at least of some use for off-road navigation, and a more appealing aesthetic would be nice too.
