Worst Sonic Levels / Zones


The Top Ten

1 Metropolis Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog 2

I Love metropolis and labyrinth and asteroid coaster

There is no way this is worse than mad space!

I hate labyrinth zone, too, but metropolis has so many cheap enemies placed where youll definitely lose all of your rings, and it's so annoying.

2 Marble Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog

Ruins the flow of the game, and it's only the second level. Way too much waiting around. At least with Metropolis zone there were some interesting parts and its at the end. Here, its right at the beginning and it's a chore.

Too much lava and act 3 was almost impossible. - XxPandomRandomxX

This is as far as I get before I go "why am I still playing this instead of Sonic 3? " - mattstat716

Let me go fast damnit

3 Labyrinth Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog

This is the first water level to be in a sonic game. And it was awful

This is complete ass. And don't try to play this level drunk. So many things, including your device/Genesis are gonna get destroyed

Ok you'd guys are gonna hate me for this but I do like this level

4 Kingdom Valley (Sonic) - Sonic the Hedgehog 2006

All goes fine, until the fast bit at the end. - XxPandomRandomxX

It's hard as hell with shadow due to the dreadful camera angle

The music is epic thou

Horrible glitchi palace of madness

5 Special Stage 5 - Sonic the Hedgehog 4 - Episode I
6 Asteroid Coaster - Sonic Colours

I'm I the only one who loves this stage

This one was extremely annoying took me ages.

It has many cheap deaths in the toxic water

DS or Wii?
I only played DS, and the DS version was fun... - mattstat716

7 Hydrocity Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog 3

I totally agree the soundtrack was great but I hated that part with the moving wall

Part I Hate About Hydrocity zone is moving wall

Hydrocity was annyoing but it had the best soundtrack in sonic the hedgehog

The moving wall WAS scary as a kid, but...

you just spindash to get by it...

Launch base was Metropolis's baby, basically. They had unkillable enemies.. - mattstat716

8 E.G.G STATION ZONE - Sonic the Hedgehog 4 - Episode I

Screw sonic 4

9 Lost Impact - Shadow the Hedgehog

Every time I've tried to beat the hero version of this level, and usually takes at least 30 minutes, but the last time I tried, the clock literally maxed out and wouldn't go any higher. It's just a pain in the ass.

The reason I didn't put this at Number 1 is because I played Shadow the Hedgehog and it was so sh*t that I didn't bother getting to this point in the level. - XxPandomRandomxX


10 Mad Space - Sonic Adventure 2

This stage here had a few interesting gimmicks to it, the hints being backwards or opposite of true definition, but the stage is way too massive to easily get an A-Rank without already knowing the locations of the pieces of the master emerald.

The Newcomers

? The Doomsday Zone - Sonic & Knuckles The Doomsday Zone - Sonic & Knuckles

Can't get past the first boss, annoying as heck with trying to get lots of rings whilst avoiding meteors/rockets

The Contenders

11 Mad Gear Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog 4 - Episode I

A remake of Metropolis Zone. - XxPandomRandomxX

12 Labyrinth Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog 4 - Episode I
13 Sandopolis Zone - Sonic & Knuckles

Much worse than Metropolis. And at least Metropolis has awesome music.

This isn't that bad... Oil Ocean had worse music. - mattstat716

14 Wing Fortress Zone - Sonic 2

I hate this level with a passion. That is all.

15 Dusty Desert - Sonic 06
16 Eggmanland - Sonic Unleashed

The hardest level in Sonic history. You may start with 99 Lives, but you'll end with 1. Also, it takes about 10 minutes to beat on the PS2/Wii version and double that on the 360/PS3 version.

Which is why we glitch out of it! :D

Seriously, just glitch-skip the level. - mattstat716

17 Sky Deck - Sonic Adventure

The camera angeling is way to difficult to control and the stage is honestly way to lengthy, if you're playing as Sonic. The stage also moves a lot which wouldn't be annoying if it wasn't for the agrivating camera angle.

I died so many times due to the awful camera angle,hate this level

18 Scrap Brain Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog
19 The Doom - Shadow the Hedgehog

Confusing level design and the dark mission worst missions in the whole game were you kill all the gun troops and one of them are glicthed

20 Radical Highway - Sonic Generations 3DS

This is complete ass for both Classic and Modern

No Classic was easy. Modern was a pain in a ass. 20+ tries finally got it 6 days later.

Classic Sonic's was fine, but modern Sonic got both bad music and bad level design!

to easy
