Worst Wii U games

Comment on site articles.

Featuring a new entry

There are at least 10 great games to play on Wii U and, as the recent Nintendo Direct proved, there is a bright future for Nintendo's new console. Yet, there are also some sub-50 stinkers that you should steer clear of even if you see them in the bargain bin. Here are the worst Wii U games.

Worst Wii U games

Postby Mrseddievedder » 27 Dec 2012, 10:49

Rabbids :D I really don't agree with the above review. Played it with friends and the true teamwork needed to play some of the games. We laughed jumped about and truly enjoyed the game. My friend had previously said the wii u wasn't worth it but he left with his opinion changed after only playing this. If you have enjoyed previous rabbid games before then you'll enjoy this one. No it isn't a boys shoot everything game but it is a good choice for groups of friends especially mixed gender groups.

Wow, they had the misfortune to own those games then had the courage to tell the world on miiverse? Brave people.

Well it's so Pikmin 3 can be the best possible game that Nintendo can ship... even if it's taken them like 9 years to make >.>

Well, think of it like a buyer's guide. We're not just listing games for the hell of it. We're telling you which Wii U games to buy (see best Wii U games) and which to avoid. Every console has rubbish games. Remember that Wii U currently has more good than bad and there are plenty of great games coming up.

Would be nice to see the 'Cybertron' games that are supposed to be within the Prime storyline make a WiiU appearance though, as they were pretty epic.

Nevermind the shortness of the game, Transformers Prime's visuals would look crappy on an original Xbox, let alone a next-gen console like the Wii U.

Worst Wii U game I've played is Epic Mickey 2. The controls are horrible and I hate Oswald. I regret not getting it for Wii. Might in a few years if they announce another one because I dont want to go through that again.

they got the idea for prime from wfc (dark energon) but funny enough no mention of it in ffc ? hopefully the wii u will get the 3rd game in the series !

I must say im really disappointed with some of the wii u games! Animal Crossing sweet day is the game I am really angry about. If you have seen normal animal crossing which I have been playing since the first ac and still have them the wii u version is nothing like it. But I have to admit when I play golf on the wii u its so much fun and the graphics are just amazing!

Eh? Sweet Day is a mini game in Nintendo Land... it's not a full game like LGTTC... how can you be dissapointed in minigame madness! :D

Thanks for the votes everyone.

I was surprised to see Rabbids Land as a really low reviewed game. I literally bought it for today and I thought it was ok and a game my mates would like because they aint extreme gamers or don't play much and we loved Mario Party 9 and this felt like a fun board game :(
