But really isn't that bad, but watch him have a go at it, it's quite funny.

Y'know, I actually like that mission. It's fun once you get the hang of it. Now, the popcorn snow crystals... *seethes*

I'm surprised that Popcorn Crystals doesn't get more hate. Trolley Trouble really isn't that difficult or frustrating, it's not cheap or anything, it just require a couple of tries. I just don't find it harder, more annoying or more memorable than any other standard challenge in the game. To this day Popcorn Crystals is the only video game challenge that makes me curse out loud! Hunter's AI is ridiculously perfect and winning against him requires insane reflexes. smilie It's just frustrating and feels cheap.
(Note: I've not played it with a proper PS controller in a few years, I've only played it on my PSP since then, but I still remember it taking a while on the PS2 as well...)

I dunno, it's the water temple of Spyro. Everyone complains about it, but if you sit down and do it, it's not that bad.

I liked that challenge. It's really not that hard once you figure out how to do it.

The double jump glitch seems to help. I can't explain it, but it seems to speed Spyro up a tiny bit compared to charging on the ground. Also, I can't remember if the Crystal Popcorn pops up in a defined pattern or randomly. So it could be that you've gotten really unlucky with the distribution of the Crystal Popcorn. I know there have been times I've had to sit and wait awhile for orange fish to pop up in that Idol Springs puzzle challenge. <.<;

Popcorn Crystals part 2 is definitely the one orb I really hate. Part 1 is easy enough that I can generally do it in one try, but for some reason the difficulty seems to be really ramped up after that. Also, I think you can feed the idol orange and blue fish, right? I thought the rule was just don't feed it red fish. At least it works for me (maybe it's different for different regions...?)

Funny story...
That challenge never used to bother me before when I was very young, I could do it easily! But somehow when I replayed that game again 10 years later, I had major problems with it. Looks like I lost my touch!
As for the hardest orb challenge for me when I was younger, it was definitely that Agent Zero challenge. As soon as I heard his voice say "I'm a secret agent..", I just immediately thought to myself, "Oh no..." He used to scare me as a kid for some reason.. Strange.. O.o

Meh. After I played the first two roller coaster challenges in Dragon Shores I was able to do it.
EDIT
I'm surprised the second lava lizards chanllenge in Skelos Badlands doesn't get much hate....

Oh and what about Agent Zero?! That one makes my heart race, and my legs stiff!!! That one for me is the most nerve racking orb challenge in the whole game!!!! The second one was getting the skill point in Ocean Speedway but that really isn't an orb challenge...

I must agree that the infamous trolley challenge is not that bad at all. Only trick is to change the direction well-timed enough that one does not hit those massive concrete blocks. The real annoyance challenge to me at least in this game is that horrible, utter diabolical, crystal challenge’s second part in Magma Cone. There is not another orb challenge in that game that makes me on verge of losing it.

But when it comes down to real annoyance in Spyro universe, we must not forget the infernal Honey Tank Blast in Enter the Dragonfly. That is a true beast of a challenge and the ones who get past it without single hint of aggression must be celebrated as true heroes.

If I had this game and had to beat this:


Me: *Tries a couple times and fails.* MOM COME AND TRY TO HELP ME!!!

Mom: *Comes in and tries it and fails.* Let me call Andy from camp. *Calls him*

Andy: *Beats it in 1 try.* I'm going back to camp now bye.

Mom and me: O_O :O :0 :o

Yep, definitely would be you right there.

Do you have a PS3 or a PSP, though? You can actually download this game from the PlayStation store.
