    What levels really drove you crazy in games? levels that were really frustrating and annoying.

    My choices are the Water Temple in Ocarina of Time or Cortona in Halo 3

    Quickman's Stage in MM2. I can still do that now years later, but at the time it was the most frustrating thing I'd ever seen. I still don't care for levels that either force you to move or have short time limits.

    Megaman 8; Dr. Wily's fortress stage three. I still can not get past the walking time bombs part without dying. Formerly my worst stage was the one for the weird plant/drill flower thing boss from Megaman Zero 4 where there were too many spikes that were too easy to hit, but then I learned how to make the "Strongest" body chip and now death traps do little damage to me (seriously, in MMZ4 the best two body chips in the game are double jump and Strongest, they make the game THAT much easier)

    Recently, Wily Castle 1 in Mega Man 6 gave me some trouble. Not so much the enemies, its just that the level is a platforming nightmare. I managed to clear it, though, and the rest of the game was smooth sailing.


    The one level that I always hate playing though is Sky Babylon in Sonic Rush Adventure.

    The Library from Halo 1. Halo's 1 level designs sucked in the first place, same designs just used over and over. The Library was no exception. Add to that the Library was just a long ass level, and what's worse, swarms and swarms and swarms of The Flood plaguing you the whole way. Cortana from Halo 3 pales in comparison IMO.

    The Star Destroyer strafing run in Star Wars Arcade

    The first level of Home Alone 2 (it was actually impossible)

    The final act of Stardust Speedway in Sonic CD

    And I could never get past the 3rd race of Jaguar XJ220

    Currently, it's getting up the temple wall in Prince of Persia. :(

    Water Temple from OOT as well, and also the last level of NES Ninja Gaiden and the speeder bike level of Battletoads. There are probably other more recent ones as well, but those ones always come to mind as my all-time most frustrating.

    The final mission in Star Lancer. The mother fu**en space station's Ion gun would not give you a break and unless you choose the one fighter that had the ability to cloak. Which that fighter didn't have a decent amount of fire power to shoot down the fighters that harrassed the boarding craft you're trying to escort. What sucks even more is that you have to protect a certain % of the craft, like if you had two survivors, it's still game over. You wingmen wernt much help either because the Ion gun suppresses them, they they had to keep their distance or be shot down.

    I blame W.Charger for it by proxy. :D

    "The Tenderizer" on later run-throughs in MotorStorm.
    Any final boss in a Japanese RPG.
