If I was going somewhere in D2, I'd go to limefrost spiral.  It can't be much colder than Winnipeg, and the mines there were the coolest in D2 imo (pun indented).

I never figured out why it was, but I was always liked Limefrost Spiral too. Levels were nice, the new robots were cool, textures were cool, and the video introducing the new system is a personal favorite. :)

Personally I'd love to walk the Quartzon surface. And maybe go into mine 3 of Zeta Aquilae. That one has always been awesome due to the usage of ice-blue textures.

Well you know what, the blue and pale-green tones are known to have relaxing effects on people... Quartzon, Limefrost, Puuma Sphere and "Omega" systems, and last 2 levels of Zeta Aquilae had those tones, as I remember?

Also adding to InsanityBringer, D2 Level 3 "Wenl Mine" is one of my favorites, for a level... I especially loved its -original- soundtrack. And I can't forget the Level 14 "Arcticon Corridor".

But, when it comes to D2 Level 7 "Coralbank Quarry", I loved its depth, and usage of water. You know, it even had some natural "waterslides!" :D

In short, I somehow like the D2 levels in all 3 games, I suspect that it is due to the fact that I played D2 after them... And a few years late, I had it in 2005! Lol

I voted for Seoul City because once you got past the trains, it was an awesome level. There was even a secret room that was like a spa or something. Very chilled-out.

Red Acropolis would be great too but I imagine it's a pile of rubble after Mission 5.
The CED Orbital Transmitter is a no-no especially if they're still playing that damn music!

Hell, if it weren't essay time I'd install D3 and have a bit of a poke around, maybe set the difficulty a bit higher.
Sadly Easy is too easy and Medium is a little frustrating at times.
I remember playing D1 when I was about 8 and it was mind-blowing but I prefer D3 now for its added depth.

All three Descent games have a special place in my heart, but I am particularly fond of D1. It has never lost it's charm for me. :)
