Im not going to argue the case for all your points because there are people who dont like Gods and its not for everyone but....
As for bland level design, this just is plain wrong! You obviously havent put enough time into the game (because you dont like the other issues) to realise just how well designed the levels are. There are so many secret passages, traps, treasures, invisible walkways, multiple routes, speed bonuses and strategic elements that you can play it for years and not necessarily see everything Gods has to offer.
I understand all your critisisms except this one because its just wrong.
