What are the hardest stages in PT2 in your opinion?
I am sure that number 1 spot is reserved for one piece - Etude de Virtuosite in E, or, how I call it, "that f.ing etude". The only stage I don't have 3 crowns in. It's like a supermarathon for your fingers - just tapping, tapping and tapping. The only breaks are +3 holding tile and one tile break around 100 score, and they really don't give you a chance to rest. My record is currently 2140, and I'm trying really hard to finish that f.ing stage. Even diamonds or free rescue can't help me. I was even thinking of cheating by slowing down the device (i think everybody knows that trick) but... after all of this I feel some strange respect to this piece. I was fighting so hard to 3 crown other pieces that it would be just unfair to kill all the satisfaction from rekting this one.
Which stage is the runner up? Many people would say The Flight of the Bumblebee. Yeah, I know, price of 20000 coins is suggesting that it should be the hardest one, but I think it even doesn't deserve the second place. My vote goes for Fantaisie Impromptu. Sure, it is shorter, but a little bit faster and it has less breaks.
The Flight of the Bumblebee takes third place. When I was trying to 3 crown it I was feeling respect for this piece - it's horrendously fast in reality. By the way, does anybody think that Feux Follets is a small version of The Flight? They are really similar in PT2.
I am not 100% sure which stage should be on 4th place, but let's go with Sonata Pathetique Mvt. 3, not because its price is 45 diamonds (oh my god, I watched so many videos to get it), but because it was the last stage i got 3 crown in (of course except for the f.ing etude). It's also a really beautiful piece. In the first time I 3 star this one, I accidentally didn't finish one of the holding tiles and thought that the overall score was 1337. That would be sick :D
Fifth place goes for the William Tell Overture. I hate this song - these breaks between single tiles are soooooo confusing.
Now - I don't know what's the order after fifth place, so I will just put my opinions. I probably forgot a lot of hard stages.
6. Hungarian Dance no. 5
7. Moonlight Sonata mvt. 3
9. Csardas (sooo hard on 4 fingers, I hate double tiles :C )
10. The Fountain
11. Appassionata (I am not sure how to spell it xd)
12. Hungarian Rhapsody no. 6 (I seriously had a lot of trouble with those single tiles :O)
