It is a multi level unit consisting of 4 large levels and 1 smaller one. See the Story section for details. You must carry out a mission to diminish the strength of the Strogg resistance. The style is reminiscent of the original Quake 2 levels.

Not great, not terrible. This is a pretty typical late '90s map set that bears all the traces of a first project. The architecture is serviceable but crude, with mostly simple rectilinear rooms and hallways, and little in the way of verticality or complex area design. Sometimes areas can be quite cramped and awkward to fight in.

The first couple of maps are pretty poor, with all the flaws mentioned above to their greatest extent and a serious ammo famine to boot. You can clearly see the author gaining experience as the set progressed, with "Palace of Torment" being the best map, though none rise to the level of the original campaign.

On the other hand, neither are these maps outright poor like a lot of their contemporaries. The texturing is pretty well-done without many egregious misalignments or texture clashes, and the lighting is surprisingly good, and the only part of these maps that is truly on point.

Overall, I wasn't impressed by The Ulysses Project but neither did I regret playing it. It was fine. Considering how scarce single-player Quake II maps are, "fine" makes it worth playing if you want more Quake II, if only just.
