Top Ten Worst Levels In Good Video Games


The Top Ten

1 Clinger-Winger - Battletoads

My first version of this segment in my remix had 666 words... awkward. Anywho, I figured I'd give a briefer summary for those who don't feel like reading the ramblings of an insane person. While Battletoads is known for being unforgiving, this level is eager to be the worst offender. Not only does it not give you a clue that you need to press the D-Pad in the direction your Battletoad is going, but it expects frame-perfect accuracy, to the point where playing on an emulator or HDTV can make this level impossible, and all the work you put in to get to the penultimate level pointless. And in true Battletoads fashion, the two player is even worse, the original US version in particular being unplayable. There's a difference between challenge and cruelty, and this level passed that line several lightyears ago. - nerffan8000

The Contenders

11 Squid Adler - Mega Man X5

Bolt Kraken is a boss but Power plant should on here or combined with Bolt kraken I put as a name instead of Squid Adler because 1.He's based on a sea creature 2.He has electric weapons 3.Mavericks have to have names based on their appearances and Elements.
