Whether its Super Mario 64′s icy penguin race in Cool, Cool Mountain or Goldeneye 007′s Siberian escape in Surface, developers often use snow levels as a way to change up a game’s pacing and setting.
Where the hell is Freezeezy Peak from Banjo-Kazooie, you can't forget that level.
Every now and then, I randomly get the Freezeezy Peak tune stuck in my head. That just goes to show how awesome Banjo Kazooie was, and how memorable the levels/tunes were! :D
For once I agree with you
This is the stage I would write when I saw the title of the article. I would add Donkey Kong Country 1 & 3 snow stages. The list is not too bad at all but I would never put Mario Kart or Sonic snow stages in top 5...
I really, really hated that level. Mainly because of how the icy water actually damaged you.
Ah, I totally forgot about Metroid Prime. That would have been a good one.
Great list. Brought back memories. Goldeneye ftw
How can you leave Uncharted 2 out of that list?
didnt read article... is it true they left out Uncharted II! Are you kidding me! I'd assume it would be no.1!
please please please please....crossing my fingers, i hope your being sarcastic
Uncharted snow was great! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
sorry but that look bland
Snow stage on Dead or Alive 3
No Metroid Prime Phendrana!? No Donkey Kong Country various snow levels!? No Banjo Kazooie Freezeezy Peek!? How dare you??!!
Okay this ones a stretch, but it's awesome enough to be mentioned: Zeal from Chrono Trigger. There was snow on the surface afterall, so I think it should qualify.
