Worst Games for the Nintendo DS

The Top Ten
1 Elf Bowling

I didn't think I was going to vote on this list. Then I saw this and thought, "Oh yes, it's that ridiculous game I played once."

What a stupid game! I always ask my friend to delete this game. This is worse than kicking someone's butt.

This game is so bad that I would rather jump off Mount Everest than play it, or break my DS instead!


There are a lot of games on here that don't deserve to be here. This isn't one of them. Why? Because it makes you have to pay for what's essentially PictoChat. Yeah, I'll stick to it being free, thanks.

This game shouldn't have been multiplayer only.

3 Pokemon Dash

Pokemon Dash may be a bad first-party game, but there are a bunch of terrible bootleg games out there. This is a bad game, but it's not the worst.

If it weren't for the bad touch controls in this game, Pokemon Dash wouldn't be on this list!

4 Deal or No Deal

I got this game on the R4, and it's just a ridiculous concept to make a DS game from a popular show. There's limited gameplay, it gets very boring after a while, and I'm just not a fan of it at all.

I owned this game as a kid. I remember it being quite boring.

My mum had the UK version with Noel Edmunds. I assume it is the same game with a different guy on the front and different colors, etc. (UK has red boxes). I voted because I don't like seeing New Super Mario Bros on the list, although I think it's a joke.

5 Go Diego Go: Safari Rescue
6 Disney's Planes
7 Pokemon Ranger

Okay, I think this is the worst in the trilogy, but I think it is a great spin-off series. While the idea sounds stupid, the stories in the games are great! However, the capture system in this game is not good.

Also, the sequel was my first Pokemon game, and I really liked it. It's sort of like Pokemon Rumble in my opinion, where the first game was okay, but the sequels were great! While I don't like this particular game, I do think the series is really good. In fact, the third Pokemon Ranger is one of my favorite games ever. The stories are dark and great, so stop hating on this spin-off series.

8 The Incredible Hulk
9 Godzilla Unleashed: Double Smash
10 Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (DS)
The Contenders
11 Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2 March of Minis

This is one of the only games on this list I think is pretty much crap.

12 Iron Man 2 (DS)
13 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Defiance
14 Bolt (DS)

Why is Ratatouille: The Videogame way more common than Bolt: The Videogame? The mobile version is even lower quality than this. The mobile version only takes less than 10 minutes to beat.

I own this game, and I do not even want to remember playing it.

15 Powerpuff Girls Z the Game

I knew in an instant that this is probably Japan-exclusive.

16 Lego Battles: Ninjago

I never got past level 3. So hard.

This game is as confusing as Theme Park when it comes to the boss levels, which were made almost impossible on purpose. If you search how do I beat act 1 level 6 of this game, a few people will say it is impossible.

I am considering selling this due to the amount of confusion and boredom this game has brought me. I only got it as part of a 3 preowned games on discontinued consoles for $15 deal. There was nothing else that interested me, and I would have had to pay $3 more to buy only the game I was looking for, which definitely was not this.

This would have to be 4th in the top 5 worst games in my opinion as shown below:

1. Fortnite Battle Royale
2. Race With Ryan
3. Theme Park DS
4. This game
5. Love is in Bloom

It is also the 2nd worst game I have ever played. Another list of the worst games I ever played is below:

1. Theme Park (Too confusing and suicide game over in the PS1 counterpart)
2. This (Boss levels too confusing)
3. Super Mario Bros* (Not the real game, it was fake)
4. Marvel Super Hero Squad (A broken game with terrible controls)
5. Love is in Bloom (NSFW)

*It was found on an unofficial flea market version of the Game Boy Color. The game was fake to the point where Mario couldn't jump very high. In fact, he jumps so low that level 1-1 is impossible to beat, and Luigi cannot move at all. The real deal is a great game, though, where everything works as it should.

What are your least favorite games that you have heard of or played?

17 King Kong

I got this game thinking it would be awesome. After I finished, I was like... no... what the hell is this! I threw it out the window, wet it, smashed it with a hammer, and let my little brother play with the pieces as garbage for his toy trash truck!

Just terrible graphics, hit detection, and controls.

18 Petz
19 Bigfoot: Collision Course
20 New Super Mario Brothers

Princess Peach: HELP!

That meanie getting kidnapped... This is why I hate this game.

I don't know why, but this game disappointed me.

21 Brain Age

The glitchy number reading was enough for me. It thought my 7 was a 9. Methinks it's time for Brain Age to get a brain of its own.

When will they make a new Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training game on the Switch?

22 House, M.D.

Really, they made a game of an adult series on Fox about a professional doctor? You gotta be kidding me. Games are for kids... What now?! Business Mario Trading?!

23 Animal Crossing: Wild World
24 My Little Pony: Pinkie Pie's Party

This game is the reason the earth will end someday.

25 Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters
