Top Ten Sonic Stages


The Top TenXW

1City Escape (Sonic Adventure 2)

I loved going to San Francisco, and this level just preserved the place for me.

2Speed Highway (Sonic Adventure)

So Good For Speed Runners And Awesome Theme At The end of The Level!

This stage stays true to Sonic with the awesome amount of speed it offers. The platforming sections are also a lot of fun. Tails has his own version of the stage as well, so that's a plus.

4Green Hill (Sonic 1)

WHY IS THIS NOT #1?! I mean seriously! This is what started EVERYTHING best toon to hum or whistle to it's the most memorable! If you are a TRUE sonic fan this would be number 1 and would have to at least hear it once a day to keep your sanity - Zombieman99

5Chemical Plant Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog 2)

The amount of speed you get in this zone is amazing. There's a bunch of different paths you can take to clear the zone as well. Really, the only part of the zone that I don't like is the water section towards the end of Act 2, because it's sort of a pace breaker. Everything else is great, though

Chemical Plant zone is one of the highlights of the Genesis era of the Classic Games, with its fast paced platforming to the awesome remake in Generations, Chemical Plant is truly a gem to behold

6Emerald Coast (Sonic Adventure)
7Metal Harbor (Sonic Adventure 2)

By far my favorite stage in the game. It give an awesome amount of speed that remains constant throughout most of the stage, so platforming sections don't really break the pace. It can be really frustrating going for the higher handle on the rocket for an A rank, but when you do finally pull it off, it's amazing.

8Windy Valley (Sonic Adventure)
9Rooftop Run (Sonic Unleashed)
10Rail Canyon (Sonic Heroes)

The Newcomers

?Sky Sanctuary Zone (Sonic & Knuckles)

Sort of short and hard in sonic and knuckles, but amazing music and great remake in sonic generations

11Crisis City (Sonic 06)

I love this! So hard but amazing

12Egg Carrier (Sonic Adventure)
13Final Rush (Sonic Adventure 2)
14Hill Top (Sonic 2)
15Ice Cap (Sonic 3/Sonic Adventure)
16Star Light Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog)

Other than Green Hill Zone, the Star Light Zone is probably the most memorable zone in Sonic 1. It has the perfect balance between speed and platforming, and the music is excellent as well. I would say Star Light is definitely the best zone in the first Sonic game, and it's a candidate for the best zone in all the classic Sonic games.

17Kingdom Valley (Sonic 06)

A very fun stage, best stage in such a broken game!

18Lyric's Lair (Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric)

So people hate the game. I LOVE the game! And the level. Sure it's like Robot Storm in Sonic Heroes but the boss is pretty awesome.
