It was the zenith of the Human campaign.  Cardinal spear. Last chance of victory.  The point at which every mission before had led to.

Either that or "Cyyyyyyyyyybriiiiiiiiids"

Got one!

That mission in X-Wing where you pilot an A-Wing and just have to ID a whole mess of Imperial capital ships and stuff. The A-Wing was normally one of the fastest ships in the game, but when you transfer all weapons and shields to engine power ('cause you really shouldn't be stopping to shoot at anything), the speed about doubles and it's breathtaking.

I now have another one.
Tie Fighter Battle 13, the last mission, that mission was epic and great fun. The game overall had some awesome missions but this one was a good speccy. Watching capital ships and then ISD IIs duking it out with lots of lasers is great fun. And killing lots of ties.
Too many ideas.....not enough FREDing time!

Halo, The Silent Cartographer.  It's the standard by which I judge all other FPS levels.  Very few have come close.

Actually, the first Halo game had a lot of these.  The Silent Cartographer, Assault on the Control Room, 343 Guilty Sparks trio is very solid.

Mechwarrior 2: Ghost Bear's Legacy - the mission where you stand on a jumpship defending it from other mechs whilst preventing massive overheat.
Mercenaries: The solaris missions in both the games.
Mechwarrior 2 itself: The mission where you control a Jade Falcon Mad Dog, infiltrate a Jade Falcon base, take out the reactor coolant, and run the **** away

Oh man, I forgot about that Mech 2 mission. So many great missions in that game.

... I never had Ghost Bear's Legacy. Need to rectify that.

Resistance: Fall of Man's first level. The scripted scenes felt great, especially when trying to aim for perfection.

Gotta admit, the only reason that didn't hit my list was because Warthogging with the Marines can be really painful. Scorpion with the original coax and all doesn't have that issue.

It gets even better if you deliberately **** up at that point. The creators actually thought to put in dialogue for if you decide to come back and let him kill you.

I don't usually get emotional when playing games.

But that level in Journey when you're sliding down the sand with the sunset shining through the stone arches will stay with me for a long time.

That's the most horrifying thing in an RTS ever.

I'd actually give that one to the Taidanii transports level, which the first time I did it was so disturbing I had to play it with the sound off. Though not before I basically curled into a ball, defending the Kuun-Lan and leaving the transports to their fate because trying and failing to defend them and then hearing those screams was just too much.

That being said, the game did have a definitive best level. There's nothing quite like hearing the Picard-like Fleet Command go Sisko on the Bentusi.

Oh yeah, that one infiltration mission (Cold Crescent)! Normally I cruise in a Firemoth, fly in and out and watch the fireworks.

From Ghost Bear's Legacy, I personally loved "Strike on Moritz" (the one where you basically level a whole city).

From other games, kinda of a split between Solomon Shrine from Ys II (lots of exploration and great music to back it up), Area 6 from Star Fox 64, and Raphael the Raven's Castle from Yoshi's Island.
