Review by Kim Robinson on 30th September 2007
Another fine addition to the Repository is this contribution from Frode 'Puritan' Waksvik, Undesirable Elements is a top-notch space level taking place on Europa, a high-tech outpost for the Earth's elite. Supposedly alien free, they have nonetheless attempted to make a foothold in the base - and as usual it's your job to sort the mess out. Level design follows the same high standard as Puritan's earlier maps, and it looks and plays very smoothly. The level was designed in conjunction with the high resolution pack, and playing with it enabled you'll see examples of nice attention to detail - for example the haphazardly rotated chair models in the admin room.
Some areas do look a little plain but for the most part it's a very enjoyable experience. For those with BUILD know-how the author has pulled off some very impressive effects, such as automatic elevators with auto-opening/closing doors and another elevator which can visit four separate floors. Watch out for these.
In all, a highly recommended map - be sure to grab a copy if you've haven't already.

After those alien bastards nearly destroyed our planet, the EDF council determined that the rest of earths scientists and technicians should be moved to a safe location. The destination turned out to be one of Jupiters moons,called Europa. A cold and remote place where the aliens never had set foot.
