Worst Games for the Nintendo DS


The Top Ten

1 Elf Bowling

lookin at the list wow...
new super mario bros? wtf
mario vs dk 2 wtf

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

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 jump off Mount Everest than play this game or brake 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 picto-chat. Yeah, I'll stick to it being free thanks.

Its pictochat that costs money -

3 Powerpuff Girls Z the Game

I knew at the instant that this is probably Japan exclusive. - Loosername


4 Go Diego Go!: Safari Rescue

This isn't even a DS game,
though it's pure crap.

5 Pokemon Ranger

Okay I think this is the worst in the trilogy but I think it is a great spin off series. Now while the idea sounds stupid the story in the games are great! But 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 how 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 and the stories are dark and great so stop hating on this spin off series.

It has no point and no end! All you do is make circles over a Pokemon for 1 minute, and bravo you caught a Pokemon that's going to have to leave soon.

"capture on! " then you do a few stupid circles around the Pokemon then "capture complete! " and I was like what?

This was extremely boring with a crappy design. Almia is ten times better than this . - Pokemongamer

6 Deal or No Deal

I got this game on the R4 and it's just a ridiculous concept making 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.

Not even once

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

7 The Incredible Hulk

This game is the exact definition of game memory loss

Why is animal crossing and Pokémon ranger on this list?

8 Bigfoot: Collision Course
9 Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (DS)

Yes it's the worst - ikerevievs

10 Pac Pix

It's a good game, but it's horribly frustrating.

The Contenders

11 Scooby-Doo! First Frights

Worst DS game I have ever played! Graphics suck, especially for a 2009 game, cut-scenes are weird and ridiculous, and overall, it's awful.

I acctally liked thw game

12 Iron Man 2 (DS)

Hey why is this here?
The game is awesome!

I reckoned the game was great. I don’t see what’s so bad...

13 Madagascar
14 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Defiance
15 Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2 March of Minis

I love this game! This shouldn't be on here! - Jasmine21064

You can't put this on here - thebounty

This game shouldn't be here. It is awesome!

I like this one

16 King Kong

I got this game thinking it would be awesome. After I finished I was like... no... 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 little pieces to use as a garbage for his toy trash truck!

Just terrible graphics, hit detection and controls.

This is no fun at all

Bad graphics, controllers that suck
worst game ever

17 Bolt (DS)

Why is Ratatoullie: The Videogame way more common than Bolt: The Videogame? The mobile version is even more low 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.

18 Lego Battles: Ninjago

Horrible, worst LEGO videogame

Good Show, bad game - Loosername

Worst game ever so boring but good level dising only good thing

19 Disney's Hannah Montana

I hate this game so much

Horrible. This was just a game that threw the Hannah Montana game (with little to do with the license) and hoped there were fans of the series that would buy this. Nope.

My cousin gaved to me this game...do you hate me so much cousin? ;-; - Loosername

20 New Super Mario Brothers

Definitely not. I'd argue that this game is actually the best one in the New Super Mario Bros Series. It's a simple, but fun little platformer that remains fun every time I play it. - EvanWellens

How can you put this on the list no offense but are you retarded seriously Mario has Nintendo written all over him it's a beast game I mean seriously did you do this on purpose or something yeah it isn't my favourite but it's still good how it can it be 4th worst?

I think this should not be on this list because it's a pretty good game. If you agree with me say something positive about this game. I hope you agree bye

Are you KIDDING me? This is anything, but a bad game. IGN gave it a 9.5 out of 10! Who would do such a thing?

21 Brain Age

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


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 it's own.

Why is this on here?
The only thing glitchy is the mic feed, Seriously try shouting "Blue" on the DS - SgtBilby

22 Petz

29 games.
That are mostly the same thing.
Congrats, you have just earned the "WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO CASH- IN WITH 29 GAMES?! " award, Ubisoft. Bring on the garbage.

23 House, M.D.

"Games are for kids" then whats Grand Theft Auto Call of Duty battlefield mass effect metal gear resident evil and the list goes on - ikerevievs

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?!

Games are not for only kids have you played call of duty Grand Theft Auto and skyrim - ikerevievs

Really? - Loosername

"Games are for kids"

Says this about a game rated T for TEEN. - FondaSu

24 Pokemon Dash

I own this game and trust me I just want to put this in flames

How is Pokemon ranger above this it's probably one of the top five worst Pokemon games of all time the controls are a joke and the graphics were basically made in a rush not to mention the color for the first Pokemon game on the Ds would give it -123875667677890

That game just sounds dumb as hell

This game is ok - ikerevievs

25 Disney's Planes

Ummm, what - B1ueNew

26 My Little Pony: Pinkie Pie's Party

This game is like 10 minutes long

It sounds bad just from the name

I don't hate MLP and I like bronies and pegisisters. The only problem in the game is, It's too quick

Does...it is...is this game about the old MLP? The one that was 3 times better than the old one?...Yo...or it is not? - Loosername

27 Godzilla Unleashed: Double Smash

I own this game and DEAR LORD IT IS TERRIBLE

28 Touch the Dead

lol... raping the dead does nawt seem plzing, and wtf has elf bowling got 2 do with ds?

29 Hell's Kitchen

I never play it so

If Gordon's voice is on this game, I'm going to put it on my favourites because whatsoever I don't know. - Loosername

30 Wario: Master of Disguise

I was forced to vote on this just to comment. I love this game, completely agree that it's underrated! The OST is wonderful and characters/story were quite interesting. I think people put this on here because of the disguise controls on the touch screen, but if you could cope with it, this game is a blast! Don't put this on the list, please.

oops.-. - Loosername

No what?
k I understand this is an underrated game
but not as bad as this
i liked the soundtrack on it and that's the only that I liked on this game

31 Space Invaders: Revolution
32 Dino Master
33 Super Mario 64 DS

Okay, the controls are a but odd. While in the original you had full 360 movement this game limits you to 8 directions. If you're accustomed to the original it will be a bit of a pain, but once you take time to learn how to use it, the game becomes a blast. This game improves on several aspects of the original, and is arguably much better than the 1996 classic. The controls aren't as good (although they're still fine), but the graphics, new levels, and new characters make this game more than worthy of your time. - EvanWellens

YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME. Why are the two best video games of all time and Mario kart DS on here. This game is better than the original only if you own a 3DS and play it on that plus this game has extra content

One of the best but not on the DS. laugh out loud it rimed

This is amazing, but awkward controls - Harri666

34 Chrono Trigger

Boring RPG with that UGLY GOD-AWFUL Dragon Ball art style...I threw this crap in the garbage and went to play Sims 3.

The only reason I could think this is here is that someone wanted extra features for the ds and didn't get it but this is one of the greatest games ever

This is one of the best games ever why the heck is it here

35 Wiffle Ball

5 dollar bad games challenge. enough said.

36 Captain America: Super Soldier
37 Cory In the House Cory In the House Cory in the House is a television show, which aired on the Disney Channel from January 12, 2007, to September 12, 2008, and was a spin-off from the Disney show That's So Raven.

This is the most amazing game to ever exist. Beautiful graphics, great storytelling, and a likable cast of characters. An amazing game to along with a great anime. Everyone should play it. 10/10

It's the best anime game no lie
P.S I actually have the game on r4 and I like it its fun

No orgy scene :C

Impressive Graphics Outstanding Story Amazing Gameplay: everything that you need in a video game based on the greatest anime of all time. If you already have this game, cherish it and worship its wonderfulness!

38 Thundercats
39 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Mobilized
40 Monster Bomber
41 Call of Duty: Black Ops

Call of Duty always sucked on every platform (Yes, you too Xbox) And it always will suck.

Call of Duty stiil sucks it never was good -

I keep seeing this game on the clearence section so yeah no one likes this - ikerevievs

How is Call of Duty number 30 easliy the worst game for the ds -

42 Crash Boom Bang
43 Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 DS
44 Moshi Monsters Moshling Zoo

Moshi Monsters Sucks. Something as terrible as Moshi Monsters should NOT be on something as awesome as a DS!

Oh, a Tamagotchi Rip-off. - Loosername

I can't figure out how to catch these dumb 'moshlings'

45 Phineas and Ferb

I beat it in an hour! No replay ability and crap graphics are the final nail. - KingoNarwals

Oh, the Phineas and Ferb franchise. There is no need for a DS version!

Not a necessary game. Considering the show has very similar plots in each episode.

46 Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood

This is good game. I don't know why this is here.

For me, this game is like Pokemon but Sonic version, and ( only me ) I like this game even more than Pokemon so put this out of the list

Was pretty boring...

47 Ping Pals
48 Kirby Squeak Squad

Are you serious? This has got to be the best game ever besides heart gold! Sure the storyline is about cake, but seriously its really fun

49 Scooby-Doo Unmasked

so much wrong with it I don't know where to start. And what is animal crossing doing on this list? at least its playable unlike this.

50 Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies

This game is awesome! One of the best ds games out there.
