Top Ten Sonic Stages


The Top Ten

1 City Escape (Sonic Adventure 2)

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

I prefer the 3D generations version.

2 Speed 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.

4 Green 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

5 Emerald Coast (Sonic Adventure)
6 Metal 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.

7 Chemical 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

8 Windy Valley (Sonic Adventure)

As simple of a stage it is, there's a great chance for short cuts with sonic. Fantastic music. You can skip the entire stage with tails, and you can rack up ridiculous time bonuses with Gamma. It has the best remix in the series ('The Air' is a remix of green grove from 3d blast), and is the sole reason I bought sonic and mario at the London Olympics. (It's also the stage that got me to love adventure 1 and is why I play it every week)

9 Rooftop Run (Sonic Unleashed)
10 Crisis City (Sonic 06) V 1 Comment

The Contenders

11 Rail Canyon (Sonic Heroes)
12 Egg Carrier (Sonic Adventure)
13 Hill Top (Sonic 2)

This, Casino Night, Mystic Cave and Emerald Hill are the easiest levels

14 Star 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.

15 Kingdom Valley (Sonic 06)

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

16 Final Rush (Sonic Adventure 2)
17 Ice Cap (Sonic 3/Sonic Adventure)
18 Lyric'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.

19 Asteroid Coaster (Sonic Colours)
20 Starlight Carnival (Sonic Colours)
