Review by Colin Phipps

"Grapes of Wrath v4.1" doesn't show much sign of being v4.1 to me. How anyone could be on v4.1 of a level and still put no decent architecture in I don't know, so I can only assume that this level is a joke.

There is little attempt at architecture. The main level is a series of parallel marble corridors, with tacky floor & ceiling choice; the rooms are generally worse with things like door textures on every wall for example. I must admit that there was a single flight of stairs, so the level isn't quite flat; the stairs lead down into a room full of barons, so they make the fight twice as awkward and frustrating as it would have been otherwise.

The fights at this level are certainly challenging. Each fight is basically a trap where more monsters are released into the main area. Early on this is just, fighting in the same long corridor over again is not very exciting. Once the level moves on and hundreds of SSNazis and the odd archville get released, things get totally unreasonable. While you have rockets things are OK, but once they run out you've had it.

If you download this level, good luck!
