10 Levels That SUCKED in The Best Video Games

A lot of the time the reason why we call Games the best games is that they've Just got incredible level design but Even the best video games have some Clunkers hi folks it's Falcon and today On game ranks the 10 worst levels in the Best video games kicking it off at Number 10 it's Cortana from Halo 3. I Want to say this is probably one of the More obvious ones so let's let's Definitely get this one out of the way Um the ninth campaign mission of Halo 3 Is about as far from a standard Halo Mission as you can get instead of the Usual wide open spaces and variety of Weapons and vehicles that a normal Halo Level would indulge you with this time Master Chief is trapped in a cramped and Confusing Place taking on a seemingly Endless onslaught of incredibly annoying Enemies another level that gets Mentioned a lot when you're talking About the worst levels it's the library From Halo 1 and yeah that level's pretty Repetitive but it's got a lot of wide Hallways and open areas that make Fighting the flood at least tolerable Cortana not so much This level has almost none of that it Seems like there's stuff trying to kill You anywhere and you can't take two Steps without getting pelted with Needles from those annoying turrets that Are everywhere and there's flood just

Popping out of these pods that are all Over the place it's really endless to Top it off everything just looks exactly The same the enemies blend into the Environment so they're hard to see whole Place is a slog it's bad enough on Normal but put it on heroic or legendary And it's just torture And number nine is Ascension from crisis Ask anybody who you know likes crisis Where it starts to go downhill nine Times out of ten they're gonna say when The aliens show up the first real Encounter with aliens uh occurs the Mission core where you're floating Around inside the mountain some people Hate that mission because it's such a Departure from the rest of the game but I know a lot of people who like it too It's different but in an interesting way At least that's what I think still That's the turning point I don't think You can deny that the game gets worse The remaining levels are are just not as Good as the first half of the game you Can't really make an argument otherwise Easily however the worst and most boring And forgettable Mission is Ascension It's the one where you pilot the VTOL And it's pretty bad like the VTOL Control is a real sluggish your Objectives really basic trying to fight The aliens in this thing is mostly just Annoying because they're tiny targets

And the whole thing's over in in Literally minutes Foreign Yeah it's cool that they snuck another Vehicle in for you to control but I'm Gonna say this the thing that a vetole Is known for is vertical takeoff and Landing V-t-o-l it's not known for combat it's Known for the fact that it doesn't need A Runway both in the game and in real Life mind you it's kind of just a short Dull and annoying mission where the Execution leaves a lot to be desired And number eight is the fade from Dragon Age Origins up until the Mass Effect Series BioWare kind of seemed Contractually obligated to insert at Least one really annoying level or Sequence into their games irenicus's Dungeon in Baldur's Gate 2 Manon and Coder and the fade in Dragon Age Origins Depending on who you ask it's not Necessarily the worst level they've made But it's up there this one goes down During the circle of Magi Quest and at a Certain point this sloth demon traps you In the fade this uh weird metaphysical Realm where the demons and the spirits Come from According to Dragon Age lore Sounds cool right sounds pretty Interesting but it is not you lose all Your party members at the start you Travel around to different areas to get

Different forms that allow you to Overcome certain obstacles again it Sounds interesting right Very much The environment is very bad it's so Boring it's so tedious and the bulk of Your time is spent backtracking it just Goes on so long too by the end you're Just begging for it to be over there's Mods that are dedicated to skipping this Entire section that's how annoying it is Especially on repeat playthroughs Dragon Age Origins is a fantastic game like a Perfect example of what we're talking About with this list because the fade Just sucks And number seven is the head drawn Chamber from control one of the all-time Great levels in a remedy game the Ashtray maze is followed by one of them All-time most frustrating the kinda sort Of final battle of the game I guess Happens in the headron chamber deep Within dimensional research the entire Lava is just a series of brutal Arenas With highly damaging enemies very little Cover and worst of all no checkpoints at Least at launch I I don't know if it's Still as bad as it was back then but Back in 2019 this was a slog of a level There's nothing worse than carefully and Painstakingly making it to the final Arena only to get one shot at in the Back by an enemy that spawned out of

Nowhere now you gotta restart from Beginning do it all over again and like If there was just one checkpoint in the Middle the whole thing would be so much More tolerable but there's none it's Just pure pain Foreign The funny thing is that's really all it Is too is a series of Arenas and if you Don't have the right skills and the Whole thing's nearly impossible I didn't Have the right skills so I was screwed And just add insult to injury when you Do finally manage to beat everything and Get to your goal you find out that you Already lost so the whole rush to get up To the head run was pointless anyway And number six is Gears of War 3 chapter 6 watery grave Gears 3 hugely fun game But there's one element that heard it in The transition from two player to four Player co-op it is the vehicle sections Instead of having something cool where One player Pilots a vehicle the other Controls the turret we get uh this uh Basically just a boring four player Underwater turret section that's as Pointless as it sounds seriously this Whole section could have easily been Covered in like a five second cut scene But instead we get this 15 minute long Turret sequence where nothing Interesting happens they try to spice Things up a little bit with some

Scripted events but you're locked into a Turret the entire time so um you really Got nothing to do other than shoot Enemies and you might go ah it's a Shooting game that's the point uh the Gears kind of pioneered the cover Shooter genre and it just be plopped Into a turret that removes most of the Mechanics of the game this part seems Like an attempt to add variety into the Game but it actually kind of limits the Game Take it out Again the amount of things you can do in This part are so few it's uh it's dull It's pointless it really could have Easily been cut and I don't think anyone Would notice like it's not particularly Painful to get through or anything but It's the part I dread when I'm playing This game Co-op these games are normally A Non-Stop Joyride but this level is Like sitting in traffic people hate Turret sections that are like a minute Or two minutes long and this is like 10 Times that plus it's underwater so it Feels slower than it already is And number five is Wolfenstein the New Colossus the courthouse this is supposed To be a big cathartic moment when BJ Finally escapes from the Nazi clutches And goes on a rampage against his Captors but instead of being the power Fantasy the game desperately wanted to

Be here this level is instead a brutal Meat grinder that'll just chew you up And spit you out always starts the same BJ breaks free during his trial blows Away everything that moves cool right Thing is you start out with very little And you are immediately swarmed by Multiple tough enemies from every Section staying in the galleries pretty Much a death sentence and the outside Hallways are not a lot better there's Almost no cover ammo's pretty sparse and Health packs are even rarer all that and The enemies really just do not stop Coming there's some turrets at the front Of the courthouse and they seem like They'd be useful but they're just a trap Trying to use one of them leaves you Pretty exposed and you just die in Seconds To really rub it in and make you Miserable the whole thing ends up being A dream sequence anyways which is very Annoying BJ doesn't actually Escape so All those deaths were in his imagination Too uh like it's hard as hell and while The idea is fine they could have just Made it so when you die in the dream BJ Just wakes up and the game continues I Guess maybe that would have been too Easy but wow would that have just been Better And number four is Diablo 2 act 3 Diablo 2's Bonafide classic but uh come on is

Anyone out there among those who Actually like act three act one is Iconic and some parts of act two can Drag a little but there's just nothing In it as tedious and miserable as act Three you're set in a confusing jungle Environment with these long winding Paths that mostly lead to dead ends and Tons of tiny annoying enemies there's so Little to like about act three basically Every enemy manages to be very annoying The tree dudes the giant mosquitoes it's All terrible but by far the worst is the Pygmies who are these fast distance Enemies they attack you with blow guns They're constantly moving and they're Very small so they're frustrating the Target and there's a shaman that can Bring them back to life they're every Annoying thing that an enemy can be in An action RPG all rolled into one and There's a whole bunch of them the worst Part is there's only so much you can Even skip the entire act basically one Long fetch Quest so yet to scour the Environment pretty thoroughly to find Everything even when you just want a Beeline toward the exit Sewers from vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines a lot of things that make This game special the World building the Characters the story uh the sewers don't Have any of that though instead they're This overly long dull frustrating

Mission that can catch new players off Guard and just make them miserable most Missions and Bloodlines are pretty short But for some reason the developers made This one just keep going I I don't know What is going on here it just goes and Goes there's no story no characters just Corridors sewers which by the way no Matter what a sewer is repetitive it's It's by Nature hallways and it's filled With all these annoying enemies and to Make matters worse it's a vampire game So you gotta suck blood in order to Survive and there's hardly anything down Here to eat except rats and at least one Clan can't use rats for blood at all so They're screwed vampire the Masquerade Bloodline starts to feel a bit rushed And complete in the second half and to Make up for that the developers just pad Edit out certain combat areas to go on Way longer these sections do not play to The game's strengths not even a little Bit and the sewer section is the worst Of them by far And number two is hot cocoa or really Any jet ski level from the Crash Bandicoot and Saiyan Trilogy this stands Out to me because when I first played uh The insane Trilogy I was just baffled so It's a mission where you control Coco on A jet ski uh but we're calling what You're doing here control is generous Turning is sluggish unresponsive the

Physics seem messed up and heavy the Controls just flat out suck it felt Wrong because I didn't remember the Original game controlling like this in This section uh and it's because it Didn't for whatever reason the Developers of the insane Trilogy decided To make the jet ski controls quote Unquote more realistic in the most Miserable way they could come up with I Know a lot of people complain about the Bridge stages and the altered movements And physics of the regular games and Mostly I don't I don't really think it's That big of an issue or even an issue Here however wow whatever they do the Jet ski controls made him way worse any Of the jet ski levels would come over This list but the worst is hot Coco Because all the Nitro crates just feel Impossible to avoid especially if you're Going for 100 completion like the insane Trilogy fantastic remake of some classic Games uh but these levels could go away Or they could make some attempt at Making them like the originals And finally number one lost izalith in Dark Souls this is one of those levels That should have been epic you're deep In the Underworld and you can literally Walk on lava you have that ability in This level and you can see the place Long before you actually get here Probably one of the most intriguing

Teases of the entire game this giant Dome in the middle of a lava lake what Horrors could possibly wait inside a Bunch of dragon asses it turns out yes You heard that right you enter the area Turn the corner and see for the first Time an Endless Sea of zombie dragon Buttocks just standing around why are They here what is this supposed to be I Don't know out of all the locations hit By Dark Souls Rush development lost Izalith got it the worst there's some Different stuff to see when you actually Get out of the dragonbot lake but it's Short cramped and not all that visually Interesting to cap it off is one of the Worst bosses in the entire soul series The Bed of Chaos Which is less of a boss And more of a random number generator Sometimes you just die real exciting and Dynamic gameplay there lost eyes the Lift is also a place that should be so Much cooler than it actually is it's so Short and incomplete that it feels like Cut content that they just left in the Game by mistake the original Dark Souls Is a masterpiece of a game but this Level is not and that's all for today Leave us a comment let us know what you Think if you like this video click like If you're not subscribed now's a great Time to do so we upload brand new videos Every day of the week best way to see Them first is of course a subscription
