Top Ten Hardest Crash Bandicoot Levels

Crash Bandicoot over the years has given us a lot of memorable and fun levels but they also have given us some of the most frustrating levels that will really test your platforming skills.
The Top Ten
1 Slippery Climb - Crash Bandicoot

Hardly any checkpoints in this one, requires incredibly precise jumps, and there is no trick like jumping on top of the ropes.

This is a very hard level and so many tricky jumps and awkward enemies. this level is like The High Road too. I called this level Slippery Crap.

Your timing in this level needs to be perfect the level really intensifys near the end of the level.

2 High Road - Crash Bandicoot

Getting the Gold Relic Time is basically impossible without abusing the rope mechanics... and putting in at least 5-8 hours.

Road to Nowhere was hard enough. This level takes that level and doubles the madness.

The high road is a crap level similar to Slippery Climb. and really hate it. and Road To Nowhere is hard enough.

3 Stormy Ascent - Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

The level was so hard it was removed from the original Crash Bandicoot game only accessible by a game shark and became available as a DLC for the remake.

When I first played thorough in the remake I started with 50 lives when I finally finished the level I was down to 2 Lives.

Thisi is the hardest level in the game so you will need 99 lives to beat this. The last part is extremely hard. No part of this level is easy.

4 Native Fortress - Crash Bandicoot

It was hard when I was a kid and now it's still just as hard!

Native fortress was very hard for me I was so glad when I passed it

5 Piston it Away - Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back

If going for 100%, getting every crate requires not dying throughout the level with backtracking. Easily the level out of all the games that took me the longest to get every crate

It's a very frustrating level and considered to be the hardest to break all the crates in the game to get the clear gem youll have to do some backtracking to get all the crates.

Those goddamn shrink rays and starfish robots. Sacrificing Aku Aku masks...

6 Totally Bear - Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back

What makes this level hard is not only do you ride the polar bear but its very dark and hard to see where your going or how far you need to jump, making it through to end gives you no reward meaning you have to break all the crates to get the gem which is easier said then done.

I died so many times because I ended up missing at least two or more crates while trying to get the gem.

This level was hell the first time I played through this level.

7 Fumbling in the Dark - Crash Bandicoot

Another dark level you need your mask just to see where your going if you lose it then your screwed plus there's so many obstacles in the level.

Lose your only light source and your literally left fumbling in the dark no pun intended.

8 Area 51 - Crash Bandicoot: Warped

First time I played this level I kept falling into the pits and kept smashing into the police cars those UFO's are super cheap.

THOSE UFOs which knock you off the road, and the countless bottomless pits in the road guarantee that you will have a time going for the relics.

In this level you race spaceships while in the dark its very hard to see and too many times will find yoursef falling down pits.

9 Sunset Vista - Crash Bandicoot

The hardest and longest level to get the key and the gem in the original first version.

10 Cold Hard Crash - Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back

Espically since one box in the bonus stage is well hidden and very easy to miss which can make getting the gem for breaking all the boxes incredibly frustrating.

Getting through the level is okay, but getting the box gem is the hardest in the game.

The Contenders
11 Road to Nowhere - Crash Bandicoot

That pig always throws me off and I keep falling on the dark board I'm suppose to jump off of.

12 Mad Bombers - Crash Bandicoot: Warped

A lot hatder than the first flying stage due to the fact that it takes a lot more to take down each plane its even more difficult in the time trial.

13 Night Fight - Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back

Its another dark level where you need the light thw most frustrating part is the backtracking in the dark.

14 That Sinking Feeling - Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex

One of the hardest flying stages in Crash the vehicle you control the firefly is difficult to control.

15 Toxic Waste - Crash Bandicoot
16 Spaced Out - Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back
17 Tomb Wader - Crash Bandicoot: Warped

This level has rising water you have time it to avoid drowning its espically harder during the time trial run.

18 Totally Fly - Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back

I really hate these dark stages.

19 Un-Bearable - Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back

In this level you are pursued by a giant polar bear it can be very difficult to tell when your suppose to jump.

This took me tons of tries, you either need to memorize this level to beat it, or have very fast reflexes

20 Hog Wild - Crash Bandicoot

Why is this still honorable mention? It's harder than slippery climb,dude! Definitely should be already on this list. Without this It's worse, you guy!

! This is like a High Road. Even harder Than slippery Climb, what is number two

Very hard and definitely most frustrating level in all of games

21 The Lab - Crash Bandicoot
22 The Lost City - Crash Bandicoot
23 Crate Balls of Fire - Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex
24 Rings of Power - Crash Bandicoot: Warped

This should be higher on the list!

25 High Seas Hi-Jinks - Crash Twinsanity
