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 Labyrinth Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog

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

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

3 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

Boring level + boring music = terrible 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 wave part at the end is the glitchiest part. I went over it again and again, but it's almost impossible.

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

It has many cheap deaths in the toxic water

I'm I the only one who loves this stage

Not so much the level, but the boss sucked. - XxPandomRandomxX

10 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 Contenders

11 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.

12 Labyrinth Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog 4 - Episode I
13 Dusty Desert - Sonic 06
14 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

15 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

16 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

17 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

18 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!
