10 TERRIBLE Levels That Stopped You Replaying Great Video Games

No classic is safe from the odd gigantic misstep into a ditch full of escort quests.


We all have our favourite games. We all have our favourite levels in said favourite games. Think Shadow Of The Colossus' third battle, or Sonic 2's Chemical Plant Zone. It's gaming at its finest, and one of the reasons we love the medium so much. Being able to not only experience these moments but to control them and drive them ourselves is what makes gaming so special.

But for every "Breaking The Bank At Caligula's" in GTA, there's inevitably going to be a "Wrong Side Of The Tracks" or "Supply Lines".

Yes, these are levels so awful that they give you pause when you dig out an old favourite for a bit of nostalgic fun. There's little worse than burning through a series of endlessly entertaining missions, only to hear you were "supposed to follow the damn train" over and over again until it haunts your nightmares and every waking moment of your life.

So let's pay tribute to all those water temples, vulnerable NPCs and forced stealth sections, and remind ourselves why you should maybe leave those classics well alone.


Revisionist western fan, lover of the 1990s Lucasarts adventure games and detractor of just about everything else. An insufferable, over-opinionated pillock.
