Top 10 Worst Water Levels in Video Games
The Top Ten
Why is this even on this list. Using the Zora mask makes Young Link a fantastic swimmer. He can also attack with his fins for a large distance. What was the point? - MrEmerik2000
HA HA HA you thought it would be the minus world or water temple but no you need to take the time to play this game and get stuck for hours without end it seems beating this temple - metroidsuperfan11
Come on, the Great Bay Temple was awesome! If you were stupid enough to play it on the Virtual Console, then I don't feel sorry for you. As for Atlantica, it's just a quicktime event for five songs with somewhat disturbing imagery.
That seaweed. Dam. Dam it's hard. - MrEmerik2000
Play this and find out no matter how much you listen to it on the internet it would help us all if you dust off your nes or buy one if you have to download it I don't care to really you need to play this level to kno what people are really talking about - metroidsuperfan11
This dam level... hehehe. But whatever, allow me to describe from what I've seen on the internet:
Tight time limit to defuse multiple bombs
Electric obstacles everywhere
It's endless touture until you reset the system - metroidsuperfan11
I can't tell you how many time's I got lost in this level imagine the worst maze level gaming has to offer now multiply that times 9000 partial pun intended - metroidsuperfan11
Instant letdown with all the unfair platforming to the grand finally of disappointment.
Definitely the worst ever temple of all-time. In order to swim underwater, uses the Iron Boots. In order to go back up, remove the Iron Boots, and goes vice versa. - MrEmerik2000
This does not deserve the golden pedistal of shame on worst water levels I have memorized every singel part of the map and it's not hard at all there are much darker waters to dive into - metroidsuperfan11
In Japan, people consider four synonymous with death, and is the case in level 4, the Labyrinth Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog because this is where all the fun of the game goes to die. You move slowly in the water and Sonic can hold is breath for only so long, meaning you have to find air supply bubbles to reset the timer or get out of the water before he drowns. If you're looking for grounds for preferring Mario games over Sonic games, how their water levels played is more than enough. - raidramon0
Without question this is the worst sonic level/water level in history of gaming. act 1 and 2 are easy in my opinion but then there's act 3! this act sucks so much because of all the super tedious traps and sonic. he can't swim so he moves really really slowly and it messes with the best mechanic. also the very bad drowning mechanics + very irritating drowning music equals a cheap challenge. but wait there is more. because the level is like a maze. you will have so much trouble navigating that it becomes 2x the chore to beat and still manages to get worse. the beggining of act 3 is such a super mega tedium jump. all this trouble leads up to the hardest boss in the game. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING!
Pretty much every water level in pikmin was hell - Scarytar44
Only Blue Pikmin? ONLY BLUE PIKMIN? THIS LATE IN THE GAME?!
It's dark and dank as hell, the music gives you the heebie jeebies, you can only bring blue pikmin in (despite having all four elemental traps), the treasures are next to worthless, and there's the Waterwraith. Unlike the rest of the bosses that stay on the final floor, this monster will appear on your current floor if you stay there too long. He's immune to almost all attacks and he can steam roll even a full squad of 100 pikmin if given the chance. Until you successfully kill him on the final floor, he will continue to hunt you down.
WATERWRAITH. That is all.
If you don't know the horrors of this water level why are you on this list - metroidsuperfan11
That oily Water
You know what part this is the part where you have to change the battery constantly, you know, that part in Bat's Tower
Constantly going for air
This is my fourth worst water level between Great Bay Temple, THAT DAMN DAM LEVEL and 'shudders' labyrinth zone. first, this is an auto scroll level second, blooper nannies, AND THE SWARM OF JELECTROS, well what if this was combined with 'shudders' labyrinth zone. so in conclusion this is hard water level. P.S pipe maze level 4 + labyrinth zone = torture
Its pain in the butt. the snake segment are the most horrible
