I wonder how many times I can say "I've never played Unreality" on these threads? :P

I hate this level. You get lost... and lost.. and meet a ton of bots.. and get lost again.. gets really frustrating.

To sum up the level:
1) caves, caves and caves
2) bots, bots and bots
3) few switches, and doorways that open
4) little pond-like area

Visually this level was OK - some nice caves (although the theme gets repetitive after some time), clever use of glowing stones and mushrooms, interesting force fields. Progress-wise - confusing, it took me some time to figure out the way over the lava. Also, I was sure there's a way to get to the upper parts. Gameplay-wise - nightmare. Bots, bots, bots and Mr. Nutz.

To sum up: you're left (both progress-wise and story-wise) clueless in the endless maze of tunnels. But it got some wasted potential in it...

What they should have done was make these cave maps so you move fast, vials, or pickup for speed.
This was the most exasperating aspect of Unreality, but I liked it.

(I am playing Nali Chronicles, man how I ever missed it or never even seen one map from it, still haven't figured out the mana thing, mana spots, I will keep playing see what gives,I just made it past the alchemist)
Just ban everyone

I wasted a lot of days in order to find the first switch.

Caves isn't a bad idea, but it's a bit overdone here....

That's why I deemed repetitive the environments of the map pack in my past comments.

The playthrough demonstrates how bad the hitboxes are on the bot spider things.

Decent overall architecture, but an annoying (and completely nonsensical) layout and horrible gameplay, the mushrooms are pretty cool though :) .
