Worst Wii U Games

The Top Ten
1 Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric Product Image

As a Sonic fan, I can easily say this game is an unfortunate mess of crap. I was hyped for this game, and what did I get? Not just a bad Sonic game, but a bad game.

It's muddy in terms of how it looks, the story is ridden with plot holes and ruined by all the OW THE EDGE villains, and... It just gets really boring with the repetitive combat.

It gets even worse when you look at the development cycle.

Dammit, SEGA.

This is not a sonic game at all, Where is most of the speed in the gameplay? Exploring poopy worlds, no choas emeralds. All you do is run in slow speed and there is less fast speed in the game

Knuckles Moon Jump
Knuckles is fat and dumb
Amy steals Espio's ninja moves
Tails creates bots and can't fly upwards
Sticks has a boomerang
Sonic is Sanic

Like I said Knuckles is fat and dumb, HE DOES NOT KNOW WHAT IS RIGHT AND LEFT? HE DOES NOT READ. Get schooled Knuckles

Metal Sonic appears earlier

Anyways Bigredbutton doesn't know what's sonic, all they did is a slow speeded RPG game

This game was awesome! The plot was decent, the jokes were good, Sonic and Knuckles rivalry was meh, for some reason Knuckles became a tough-dumb idiot, but overall this was a good game.

With it's utterly broken controls, cheap story, laughably cheesy dialogue and game breaking glitches, Rise of Lyric offers the worst of Sonic since his 2006 entry on PS3 and 360.

2 Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival Product Image

The bundle can sometimes be found for cheap, so it is worth the money if you want the figures and the amiibo cards and have this game as an add- on. That's how I see this game. An add- on to the existing amiibos, not an actual release.
The board game can get boring, as you should just stick with Mario Party or even your typical Monopoly. The unlockable mini- games are great, though. Sadly, Desert Island Escape can also be played on New Leaf, Welcome Amiibo, so it's not that worth it.
I don't think you should plan this as your next Animal Crossing game. Just stick with City Folk/Let's go to the city.
Here are the pros and cons for this game:
- Can be found for cheap;
- Nice Animal Crossing feeling;
- Amazing graphics;
- Great mini-games;
- Can link Hhd data(I think);
- It's Animal Crossing on the Wii U.
- Unlucky gamers can get it overpriced;
- Amiibo required;
- Some mini-games need 6 cards;
- The board game can get boring;
- ...more

The game is not officially released, but the trailer alone indicates that this could be among the worst games to be released on Wii U -- and by far the worst game in the Animal Crossing series.

Unfortunately for fans (such as myself) hoping for a full-fledged Wii U Animal Crossing game, there may not be one.

The only reason I got this game is because it was on special offer. While the mini games are kinda fun, the board game gets very boring very quickly, especially in single player. You're better off just buying City Folk, as it still works on the Wii U.

A slimy way for Nintendo to mooch off your savings. I mean, amiibo required? That means you have to buy amiibo for it, and only a specific kind!

3 Family Party 30 Great Games: Obstacle Arcade Family Party 30 Great Games: Obstacle Arcade Product Image

It has the audacity to claim that this game contains "30 *GREAT* Games", when in reality, it contains not even one tolerable game, let alone great ones. Even four years later, this still reigns champion as the absolute worst Wii U game... That wasn't a joke (like
Meme Run).

I wouldn't say Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric is worse than this game however. At least, Sonic Boom is capable of giving even an ounce of enjoyment. This game (30 Great Games), however, advertises something "great", and that's just plain wrong.

These aren't even great games. The developers clearly don't know what the word great even means. (either that or they were really high on crack when the made the title of the game, and the game itself)

You know a game is bad if they put "Great" in the title if NOTHING about it is actually great at all.

Its 30 horrible games in one game luigi you should not be 1 this should be 1

4 Meme Run

I want this to be on #1!
It sucked so hard that the game had to be delisted from the eshop forever.
This is the worst Wii u game ever made.
Cringe at it's worst, especially if you are a super smash bros. fan, it will ruin your life if you play it.

I'm surprised this was even released

This game actually exists?

Really nintendo?

5 Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash Product Image

I am surprised Nintendo made a bad mario game! Seriously he had a very clean record throughout the years, but this game was awful. But mario is still my favorite game series of all time

I was praying Nintendo learned from there mistakes in Mario tennis open, but Nintendo decided that they were gonna be Nintendo Andy didn't listen to us yet again *sigh*

There is this one Mario hater who is putting all these awesome games Mario U,3D world,ultra smash,Mario kart 8,smash 4 Wii u,Mario party 10 and Luigi u

Why did Nintendo think that Mario needed more sports games?
I mean he's not that fat right?

6 Call of Duty: Ghosts Call of Duty: Ghosts Product Image

The biggest problem with Xbox and PlayStation fanboys is that they make fun of the Wii U for being a childish console and trust me they are just jelous think about it smash mk 8 hyrule warriors dk tropical freeze awesome mixed games and all they get is fps and think about most of them haven't even played or held a Wii U gamepad so what are they talking

I'm not sure if I can say that this is one of the worst Wii U games. I am sure, however, that it's here just because it has the Call of Duty name on it.

Why did they have a Call of Duty game on the Wii U but for the Switch they just scrapped the idea. Who scraps games for the next console?

It looks ok I mean any call of duty on a nintendo console is a masterpiece compared to Infinite Warfare and the xbox 360 Black Ops 3, I would love MW1 on the Switch though

7 The Letter The Letter
8 Paper Mario: Color Splash Paper Mario: Color Splash Product Image

This game isn't even out yet, so why put it on here. You never know it could be a good game when it comes out.

Get out please, if you haven't played it don't put it on this list. This game is actually good.

That moment when people put a yet unreleased game thinking it's gonna be a bad one

This game is better than Thousand Year Door

9 Hello Kitty Cruisers Hello Kitty Cruisers Product Image

Thanks is under Mario Kart 8 and Mario Tennis UltraSamsh
Now I fell bad

Horrible ripoff of Mario kart

Hello kitty scares me

This is a thing?

10 Mario Party 10 Mario Party 10 Product Image

This game like all the Mario party's starting from 8 are the worse Mario party's not the worse Mario games as they still are enjoyable and fun and are not bad games although there are better

It's not the worst Mario party ever I mean we have Mario Party Advance, Mario Party 8,and Mario Party Island Tour but Mario party 10 is still bad - spodermanfan1000

There are 5 boards, it doesn't have unlockables that are worth a damn, and the game is more based on luck than other games in the series. For the Wii, get either 9 or 8. Both are pretty good.

Why are people hating on Mario Party 8, that was the best game ever, but ya this game is a flaming pile of trash, buy it for 10 bucks

The Contenders
11 Star Fox Zero Star Fox Zero Product Image

GamerFox24601 made an analysis video that points out this games flaws. I highly recommend watching it if you have an hour to kill.

After waiting nearly ten years for a new game in the series, this was such a disappointment.

If you're looking for a traditional star fox game you'll spend the whole time fighting the terrible motion controls

The missle stage almost made me destroy my gamepad. I gave up playing this game entirely after that, and I haven't played it since. This game sucks so bad it should be #1.

12 Game & Wario Game & Wario Product Image

This shouldn't be here I can name 3 even worse games!

This takes the fun aspects of previous warioware games and throws them out the window - FlamingYveltal

Its good but strange music. - Super64Mario

This game has impossible controls it's worse then rabbits land

13 Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Product Image

It has a lot of new characters but they're limited to only one event each. And did I mention that this has the least amount of events of all the summer olympic games (non-handheld)? Also, the dream events are gone!

Poultry amounts of events and character restrictions. Do yourself a favor, and get a refund. Buy London 2012 instead, it can be played on the Wii U, too.

14 New Super Luigi U New Super Luigi U Product Image

Well I bought a wii you bundle where you get super Mario bros wii you and luigi to first I started playing super Mario you it was fun great graphics really good but then I tried out super luigi you it was the same the only difference I found out was that the music was going a slight bit faster and luigi jumps higher but its hard to steer luigi its like if he was drunk he slides around like an idiot and also whats that pink thing with that bag guess what they replaced him instead of having Mario and on the cover as you can see they did cross over bros like what isn't luigi Marios brother anymore I know they were trying to celebrate luigi or something but its just stupid to make the exact same game but with luigi why couldn't they just include him in the regular Mario bros you

Why does everyone love this game? The one time Luigi actually gets a game, it's just a Mario ripoff. I mean everything the same happens in New Super Mario Bros. you except with Luigi! It costs more money and... If you've only played new super Mario bros Wii or new super Mario bros you and have no idea what this game is about... Save your money for Super Mario 3D World!

Total waste of your time and money... IT IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS NEW SUPER Mario BROS U! Don't WASTE YOUR MONEY!

This game was pretty pointless after Mario U was released, not much of a difference either, to improve this game they should have at least created a few different levels or features, for anyone who has already beaten Mario U, this is just like replaying the game as Luigi, just like Mario Galaxy, where you needed to beat the game with both characters, which was pretty pointless as well

Ugh, this is a discgrace to the Mario series, I don't think it's the worst Wii U game ever but worst Mario game for sure. It's a copy and paste of a game that it's itself a copy and waste of New Super Mario Bros Wii, Mario is not here at all, instead we got Nabbit who is hella overpowered and he is an enemy so why is he a playable hero now? Because his model was already in the original game? I guess...
The only time Luigi's appearance is 100% indipendent from Mario is this cheap waste of money. Bleh.

The fact that this game exists makes me cry like an anime fan on prom night

A colossal disgrace to the entire Mega Man franchise and the action platformer genre in general - PerfectImpulseX

18 Mass Effect 3 Mass Effect 3 Product Image

This is a great game?! Why is this on the list?!

Lemme guess it's because mass effect 2 is better and that ending though but it's great!

You can't skip the videos.

This is a good game - B1ueNew

19 Devils Third Devils Third Product Image

Compare this to Eternal Darkness: Sanity of Requiem, and you'll see the dip in quality for M-Rated Nintendo games. Daemon X Machina is great, though.

Just Nintendo partnering with some indie company making a rated m game with violence and gore trying to be manly - B1ueNew

I haven't even played the game but it looks bad especielly the graphics evetything is low resolution

This game boring I played it once or twice and got boring for me

23 Rabbids Land Rabbids Land Product Image

Who wants a game about these white retards?

"Who wants a game about these white retards? "
*mario + rabbids kingdom is a smash success, game grumps comments on how they love rabbids* - Kaiserness

Rabbids were always my most hated game characters. Plus, each years, rabbids game are always getting worse, and Rabbids Land is not an exception. This game is really empty and mini games are so lame. All you do is walking around a circular board and getting trophies to win.

Do I have to say anything else? Except that these retarded rabbids are annoying as usual? - Scourge21

24 Deal or No Deal

This isn't even on Wii U...

Not on Wii you - KriCket33554
