|Short, but a very polished experience that emulates to near perfection the wet, depressing ambience of Rapture. Every map is amazingly designed, with care put into every little detail. This combination of factors make Somewhere Under The Sea one of the best graphical showcases when it comes to Blood campaings.
Now gameplay wise, I wasnt very impressed. For clarification, I played this campaing on Ultra Crispy, as I do with nearly every campaing I play so I was expecting a challenge. However, some of the decisions that the author took are baffling. There's a Beast at the end of MAP01, where you have nearly no ammo, barely any space (MAP01 is inside of an airplane after all) and almost no cover. I only managed to beat this level because the Cultist glitched and once dead he didint turn into The Beast which, while lucky for me, remains extremely bizarre that I was only able to beat the level because of a glitch. There are similar examples throughout the following levels, so its not something isolated. Now I know im playing on UC so its expected to be hard, but when I have to glitch myself out of these situations the experience is just not fun.
Regardless, Somewhere Under The Sea is still one of the best campaings that one can find for Blood. But I cant help thinking that the experience could've been better.

|Great episode, thank you! Didn't expect this complexity is possible in Build engine
It's hard as hell (at least for me), finished with 10 health on easiest, but I had so much fun!

|Very solid episode all the way through; and rather long too for "just" 3 maps.
At the same time a good homage to Bioshock, and a good Blood episode.
Only shame is that I seemed to encounter a glitch that wouldn't let the second to last door in the last map...
If you like this episode make sure to check out Rapture, another map based on Bioshock by the same author.

|You should try Bobsp4 for Duke3D. It's a map with a large, fully explorable lagoon containing 4 undersea bases you can explore inside of. Employs some design ideas you might like to use if you continue this episode.|

|An exceptionally crafted excursion into the depths of Bioshock's Rapture. It's very well designed authentically replicating the experience and feel of the source inspiration. The gameplay feels true to Blood using intelligent enemy placement coupled with the surroundings to make for a balanced challenge without resorting to using hordes of enemies.
The atmosphere is striking and spooky with the many very clever and awesome scripted sequences, I especially admired the use of lighting and depth queing to create a dark and forboding environment. My favourite is the pitch black corridor in the 3rd map lit only by flickering candles placed in the corners to create an amazing sense of immersion.
The only minor issue is the maps are linear for the most part but this is up to the discretion of what a player is looking for.
I give it 5 Gillbeasts out of 5.

|So I assume this was inspired by Bioshock. Looks like some great stuff here and interesting ideas. Good job man, keep it up :)|

Both newly added maps fit the theme perfectly, just as clean and atmospheric.
This sure makes for a great addition to the upcoming mappack
