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

My Mario Maker levels.

Around the Network

Most snow levels I played are only that because of esthetics, which doesn’t really have a big impact on gameplay itself. Most things could’ve just as well have been desert levels or whatever. So it’s hard to think of one that really resonated with me.

I guess I’d pick Snowpeak Ruins from Twilight Princess. Or that penguin snow level with the big slide from Mario 64, I forgot the name.

Not the level, but the whole game - The Thing, made as sequel to Carpenter's movie.

New Super Mario Bros. U snow levels, with the starry backgrounds, are so beautiful!

Its really generic isnt it? Thats the best designed "snow" element area, you 've seen in a game?

Snowpoint City and the routes around it in Pokemon Platinum.

I just really liked that area, it looked awesome to walk around in and I just generally love snowy places in games too

I can respect this for its spirtes.... not visually a hugely impressive snow/winter level though.

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.

^ a real answear.

Esp in God of War.

Hebra Mountain in Breath of the Wild

Nothing to see here, move along

These might not count as levels, but I love playing through winter in bully and the winter season in animal crossing.

Honestly I really loved the snow dungeon in Twilight Princess, Snow Peak I believe it was called; not only the dungeon itself but getting there was a nice experience as well.

Yea, that was a good one. Making the soup was cool too.

Basically all of Rise of the Tomb Raider is a snow level lol

DKC Tropical Freeze. A whole game dedicated to awesome ice levels.

Horizon Zero Dawn DLC, I litterally could not play the game cause I kept stopping to take photos and play around in it and that was before a Pro with 4k and HDR. It's phenomenal still in current year.
