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.

...that's all I have to say - GreninjaGuy

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?

I Prefer Pokepark. - Loosername

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 Newcomers

? Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (Nintendo DS)
? Mobile Suit Gundam 00 (Nintendo DS)

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)
13 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

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

You can't put this on here - thebounty

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

I like this one

The one that put this here is going to have a bad time...and not with sans exactly, with my iron hammer. - Loosername

17 Bolt (DS)

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

18 Lego Battles: Ninjago

Good Show, bad game - Loosername

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

19 Disney's Hannah Montana

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.

I hate this game so much

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

20 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

21 Pokemon Dash

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

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

That game just sounds dumb as hell

This game is ok - ikerevievs

22 New Super Mario Brothers

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?

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.

24 Disney's Planes

Ummm, what - B1ueNew

25 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 it's own.

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

26 My Little Pony: Pinkie Pie's Party

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 Space Invaders: Revolution
31 Dino Master
32 Wario: Master of Disguise

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

33 Super Mario 64 DS

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

No. - Loosername

34 Wiffle Ball

35 Captain America: Super Soldier
36 Chrono Trigger

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

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

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

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

Call of Duty stiil sucks it never was good -

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

41 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.

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!

Terrible Graphics Terrible Story Terrible Gameplay and a game that last 1 hour burn this game if you have it.

It's my favorite Anime.

No orgy scene :C

42 Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 DS
43 Crash Boom Bang
44 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.

45 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.

46 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'

47 Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood

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...

48 Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies

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

49 Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

This game needs to be on a Top Ten Best Nintendo DS games, not this list
