Hardest Video Game LevelsLucasMota
The Top Ten
The Aztec is a very hard level. I beat it only once on 00 agent, but I haven't done it ever since. It's still a fun level though and it adds a challenge to the game! - beatles5
Prepare to lose all you're lifes (and you patience) - LucasMota
Not only is it hard to beat it normally but if you want everything complete like me you have to suffer through the level to get all five star coins
This level was so hard that I had never played the game ever again.
Blue Yoshi. Boom problem solved. - purpleyoshi98V 5 Comments
This is a frustratingly hard level but how is it 3rd place? I'd rather see it around 16th place since the only hard part was the Squawks section, the rest was medium difficulty...
You might not think it's that bad at first, but then... THAT WIND!
Just beat it. Finally. It's been so many years.
What's better than an underwater level with a time constraint? An underwater level with a time constraint with electric coral that gives you just a pixel's room of error to move through it.
That damn dam...
Might as well rename it to damn. Because you'll be saying it over 9000 times during this level. - Pikachu7586
SHOULD BE CALLED "DAMN! " - CN121
Harder level than any level on this list. This level is notorious for being the hardest level in a video game.
This should be #1, as it aggravates more people than any other level. Very few people have ever beat it
WTF11? Why Is This Not On First One Top, MAN! 111?
This and Champions' Road (that one was even worse) are the 2 levels of hell in the 3D Mario series. Thanks a lot Rosalina
Just wait and see the darker side of the moon in super mario odyssey. Although the darker side is not as hard with assist mode...
You have to beat this on one life, prepare to die
The perfect run is the hardest levelV 6 Comments
In order to have any chance against Death (unless you're a ninja behind the controller), you need to keep the holy water that you get at the beginning of the stage, meaning you need to do a near perfect run throughout the entire stage. This involves also getting through a hall with knights and medusa heads, which is near impossible.
I'll vote this cause I like this game.
I didn't find any game to say it is "Hardest"
The most of levels I could finish...
There's some DK 2 and DK3 Levels that's hard, but I think its not this ones quoted here.
The engine room... Enough said...
You should see how many people tried to beat this song especially in expert mode which the total number of notes is 3722
Is this actually a name of a level in this game BECAUSE POOCHY ISN'T STUPID Nintendo... YOU LAZY NERDS!
Are you kidding me how is this not one of the highest levels in difficulty. This level literally made you glitch it at a certain point just to even think of beating it! SO HARD!
Screw this one. You have to have a precise jump and there's always an enemy that reappears. - NuMetalManiak
I got past this level in two goes.
The jump on 5-2 was definitely one of the hardest obstacles in the game.
I've actually beat this biotch of a boss rush. Took me 3 months, but I did it.V 1 Comment
Norfair was easy before, but try going through THE ENTIRE PLACE without the Varia Suit.
How is this 16, I get why tubular would be harder but this should at least be number 5 because it's boring and hard, switching your boots every 4 seconds is the worst now it did have dark link and he's semi fun to fight, but I got ticked when I found out after all that crap, I fight a stupid water creature.
This level is mainly difficult because you waste your keys and have to find one and you don't know which one it is also I was annoyed I finally got to the end only to find I couldn't beat the one room behind the boss I was pissed
This level is pretty much a 100 km maze with three stories and different water levels in order to get back and forth between the levels. It took me a solid month to find three keys. Just jump down the bottom, explore every room, raise the water level, jump back down the bottom, explore every room again, raise the water level again, jump back down and explore, lower the water level, explore every room on the second floor...
PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY. - TheGrammarPolice
Hard,Confusing,Tedious with a silly boss and the best mini boss ever:dark linkV 4 Comments
I wish I died when I played this game!
Oh My Gosh. This level is a God Damn Nightmare. It is Turbo Tunnel ramped up to EXTREME. I haven't beat this level yet. I don't even want to explain how bad this level is. Don't even get me started on Rat Race...V 1 Comment
If you thought The Perfect Run, Special World-8 Crown, and even Mystery House Marathon wasn't already hard enough, have fun wasting countless lives here
This should be much higher on this list
No matter how far into the level you were, if you died it was back to square 1.
Why are all these easy as pie Nintendo games ahead of this? Arnhem Knights is a REAL challenge in comparison
Probably the hardest evel in the game. This has Panzer tanks, Panzergrenadiers, snipers and riflemen, all attempting to shoot your ass off.
This is where you had to traverse war-torn Arnhen in Occupied Holland. Throughout you and many British NPC had to fight 4 isolated battles including snipers, tanks and panzer squads. - jezza0
Many times I lost all of my continues.
Screw whoever made this. (Sigh. )
It was OK, but then... WHY IS THIS HAMMER BRO HERE?! - TheYoshiOverlord
Man! This was hard! (To be fair, I want a challenge with a final level)!
Everything is hard in this level, the pokemon tower is too hard, easily number 1
Easily #1, because, the pokemon tower
The ghosts scare your pokemon
In this level, Crash must the outside of Cortex Castle while avoiding a gauntlet of traps and tricky jumps. There is only one checkpoint crate in the whole level.
Oh my gosh! How is this level not on this list?
What I meant was Crash must "traverse" the outside of Cortex Castle."
This level has only 3 checkpoints. You have to kill a 4 bosses and complete 4 vehicle escape sequences in a row to sum up this level. This level may cost you your sanity.
This level is bs.
PS3 doesn't count! Anyone who has actually sat down and played this game on the highest difficulty settings through the first few levels would know how challenging this game gets. While it is fair and even enjoyable to some that seek a greater challenge (myself included), there is a lot to learn. The game gets harder and harder as a player progresses significantly enough to be compared with the nintendo hard trope. This is the last level of the game the harder of two levels in which difficulty is at its highest - showdown and catacombs. This level used to be glitched and impossible to beat. The glitch was fixed with a patch that also reduced the general difficulty of this game. Even with the patch, this level is still one of the hardest I have ever played, Including some from ghosts and goblins.
To sum this level up, think about this: you have about 65 unique enemies that have their own attack patterns, including bosses. On madness, enemies from late game chapters are thrown at ...more - Blazingsun733
Oh God, don't even remind me of that god damned clock tower level. What is it with old school platformers and ridiculously annoying clock tower stages? - xandermartin98
This level is insane but look at sonic wave
This Level Is So Annoying And So Impossible That It Should Be More Higher In This List
I kinda sorta had to look up a walkthrough to 100% this god forsaken level. - xandermartin98
