Best Levels from Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage

The Top Ten
1 Mystic Marsh

The first thing to mention is the creative design of the enemies, like the snail-elephant hybrid and the platypus-pufferfish cross. The missions are amazing, especially the thief mission, which introduces players to parts of the level they may not have noticed. The trading mission, the best in the game, requires examining the environment closely for oddities like cooking pots or ducks. It gives a new perspective on the level of detail in this game.

2 Skelos Badlands

Easily the most unique area in the game. The enemies require interesting strategies to defeat them. It's one of the only levels where aiming with the zoom function is necessary, and who can ignore the skeleton dance? The aesthetic is great, and it was entertaining to run through the lava while being invincible.

A classic with memorable box art and some of the most fun missions in the game! Not to mention, it's the first level with the invincibility power-up. Any true Spyro fan knows it's iconic.

3 Metropolis

A really creative and fun area. The bull fight in the armory was challenging but fair. It was pure bliss to fly through the level, shooting giant fireballs everywhere once you reached the double power-up gate. Seeing the giant open area from the start of the stage builds suspense as you approach it, excited because it looks awesome. When you finally get there, you realize that you were right - it is awesome.

4 Zephyr

This level is one of the largest in the game. The setting is fun, and the exploration is great. However, the area is bogged down by the worst set of missions in the game. The seed planting was highly tedious, offering no challenge, and the cowlek missions are the most boring in the entire game.

5 Aquaria Towers

I am perfectly aware that this is a fan-favorite area. However, I couldn't enjoy it as much as most people do. That said, it's still an amazingly crafted level that cleverly uses the underwater environment, such as raising the water level to reach higher areas.

6 Scorch

A really nice level with some of my favorite side characters in the series. Alongside Hunter, Handel and Greta also make an appearance. The missions, especially the one involving the weird floating genie man who throws bombs, were creative.

7 Autumn Plains
8 Robotica Farms
9 Idol Springs
10 Cloud Temples
The Contenders
11 Hurricos

My favorite setting in the game. I love the mechanical environment with a storm raging through it. It's a good challenge for early-game players to supercharge the windmills and jump across the fan blades, but it's also a great teaching tool. The inhabitants of the area are funny as well.

12 Glimmer
13 Sunny Beach
14 Gulp's Overlook
15 Breeze Harbor

I love the mechanic of lighting fireplaces to power the machinery in the area. It makes it extremely satisfying to explore the level. However, what kind of person would I be if I didn't mention TROUBLE WITH THE TROLLEY? It's an awesome mission, but it's bogged down by that repetitive line, which gets grating quickly. Nonetheless, it's a unique mission.

16 Crystal Glacier
17 Fracture Hills

My first thought going through this area was how much it reminded me of the first Spyro game. Breaking the statues of the world's inhabitants, encountering similar enemies like the killer bushes, and navigating the supercharge course evoke nostalgia.

The stage is interesting and fun, with engaging missions and aesthetic appeal. The only reason this doesn't rank higher is because of the awkwardly placed metal chest.

18 Shady Oasis
19 Colossus
20 Summer Forest
21 Magma Cone

By far the most overrated area in the series. The level's segmented design is interesting, but each area has its own share of problems. On the ground level, there's little to do. The collectibles are all in obvious spots, and the enemies are recycled from Fracture Hills.

The volcano is the best part of the level, but it feels like the entire stage should have been set there since the area is too short. The hidden ice cave is a nice touch, but the RNG in the crystal popcorn game isn't enjoyable in a Spyro game.
