Best snow/ice/winter levels

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Best snow/ice/winter levels

Whoever said Phendrana Drifts from Metroid Prime, I second that. Quite the contrast to exploring Magmoor Caverns as well. And I could be wrong, but one of the main memories I have of that game is going through the lab that gets all dark after you find the visor upgrade, and then you have to make your way out while getting attacked by space pirates. The part I could be wrong about is that I think it's accessed from within Phendrana. I picture it on a bridge way up high with rooms in all directions, one of them being the entrance to this lab.

The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau


Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

How is the most beautiful and best ice track ever not mentioned...

Rise of the Tomb Raider has some great snow levels. Forza Horizon 4 during the winter season is really fun to drive around in!

God of War's crunchy snow is pretty damn satisfying to walk through and marvel at.

Horizon Zero Dawn's Frozen Wilds expansion is the best part of the game imo. It's got a similar level of detail to God of War's, although not quite as good. But the atmosphere as a whole is stronger and there's great use of colour.

Oh wait yeah I might have to change my answer to Ice Cap Zone and HZD: Frozen Wild dlc being tied. Sonic 3 has too much nostalgic love in my heart to put in 2nd hahah


There are many that I have enjoyed throughout the ages. However my favorite will always be Mario 64's Cool, Cool Mountain. First, in 1996 I was 12. Second, I had lived in a tropical Island all of my life and Snow seemed alien and wondrous to me. And 3rd, Mario 64 was the first proper 3-D game that I had played at that point.

It was a magical and endearing experience. The slide was addictive as heck and diving head first into the snow with Mario was an unforgettable experience. 

Far out, how could I forget the Tundra in Monster Hunter Tri? Like almost all the games maps it really looked and felt like a living breathing environment with so much attention to detail. Definitely up there with the very best for me.
