I got to play it for a few hours when it was under limited testing... and it was pretty amazing. The map itself was a decent size, I'd probably place it between one of the medium and large maps in BF2, slightly smaller than the largest maps in BFBC2. This at least made it large enough that vehicle travel was a big benefit, but you weren't SOL if you had to hump it across the map, and with 64 players there wasn't too many lulls in the battle. The vehicle balance needed a little tweaking, they actually seemed a little underpowered. One Engineer could take out a tank alone with ease. Helicopters were shot down almost immediately after take-off without any countermeasures. Hopefully they can beef them up a little bit (or speed up the vehicle unlocks) to bring back the need for teamwork to bring down vehicles.
But overall I think all the beta naysayers will change their tune when they get a chance to play Caspian... it is definitely a classic BF map.
