A great video game level is something to behold, yet they often come few and far between, leaving some you'll play through and never truly appreciate. Also, due to the popularity of the open-world genre, it can be said that 'levels' are somewhat starting to slowly disappear, with increasingly huge sandboxes becoming the norm.
Despite this, the past decade in gaming has been very kind to us, with a number of fantastic titles coming out since 2010. They have easily provided some of the best, most detailed levels we've ever had the chance to explore, from zombie-infested hospitals to heavily guarded forts in the wild west.
There are a number of levels often touted as the best from a certain game, as fans build up a given set-piece or environment as a key moment, yet what's more interesting are the sections that end up overshadowed by the game's climax or ending.
This list aims to pick out a small selection of the most underrated levels of the past six years, and give them some well-deserved time in the limelight. Let us know your own in the comments below.
