 RPGnet : Review of Oceania
Oceania actually plays a lot like Carcassonne, though it's much more aggressive with its scout placement than the meeple placement is in Carcassonne (primarily because you can explicitly grab someone else's territory, while you have to be cunning to do the same in Carcassonne).
On the other hand, it must be clearly said that there's a large random element to Oceania with its tile draw; although this can be somewhat helped by careful choice of starting position, it still remains a large factor.
Overall, I think Oceania is a fine filler, that maintains some of the exploration and majority control elements of Entdecker, but loses most of the complexity and strategy.

  Amazon.com: Oceania: Music: Oceania   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Oceania, the first international release of Maori music, brings together celebrated New Zealand poet/singer/lyricist Hinewehi Mohi, Brit post-punkster Jaz Coleman of Killing Joke, and Hirini Melbourne, a composer and professor of Maori studies.
Oceania is overflowing with energy and respect for the old ways and uses traditional Maori instruments such as the pahu (drum), pukaea (trumpet), koauau (flute), and the putaatara (a conch shell played like a trumpet) and the Maori language.
Cleverly and tastefully mixed with electronic sounds, Oceania carries the crux of Maori music into the mainstream, and allows this beautiful form to perdure, and at its best, to be enjoyed, experienced, and educational to the masses.

 Skiing the Pacific Ring of Fire and Beyond: Oceania
The "continent" of Oceania is a geographer's convenience, consisting of Australia and the various island groups of the central and south Pacific, including New Guinea, Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia.
Even those self-proclaimed purists who refuse to consider Oceania a real continent and maintain that Australia alone is a continent must be forced to include New Guinea within that continent.
The relationship of New Guinea to Australia is identical to that of the island of Britain to Europe, both lying on the continental shelf and separated from the mainland by a shallow channel which was dry during the Ice Age, until about 10,000 years ago.
