Top Ten Worst Mario and Sonic Games


The Top Ten

1 Hotel Mario

Oh... My... Go-- do you see this mess? I hated it when I was about 3 years old. It's that terrible. Oh... It's just worst - Chaotixhero

You know what they say, all toasters toast toast

Hotel Mario is a mix of great and awful.

This game wasn't even made by Nintendo like WHAT THE HECK. Look it up on Google and play it and you'll see how bad and hyocritical this is.

2 Sonic Spinball

Why did you put in front of the educational Mario and sonic games!

This game is awesome, but it could still use improvements!

I don't care if it's on the Sega Genesis or the game gear, the game still SUCKS. I never liked it and I never will - Chaotixhero

Put sonic 06 here instead. This is epic!

3 Mario's Time Machine

Oh boy a Mario game where Mario use a time machine! This is gonna be great :D

5 minutes later...

YOU LIED TO ME YOU PUNK! WHY?! Don't... ever... Play this peice of crap! - Chaotixhero

Looks at game.

Thinks it will be a cool platformer set in time.

Plays game.

Educational game.

Hits my cartridge like I hit my bad grades.

This game sucks.

4 Sonic 3D Blast

This game is awesome! I know the controls suck, but this game is way too underrated & I do not appreciate that.

Why... ? 3D? It not even 3D. It's crap. They should have call it Sonic Crappy Blast because that what it is... Crap. - Chaotixhero

Even I am disgraced about this game failing to be 3D in gameplay, but the graphics are still great!

This crap this is the worst video game of all time. No Sonic 06, no Bubsy 3D, not even Superman 64 - nintenfan

5 Sonic's Schoolhouse

This game is seriously for babies.

More like Sonic sucks his crap in his stupid daycare.More like Sonic Kills Toddlers.CRAP

6 Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

I spared it lol - Chaotixhero

How come Sonic 06 got the Platinum Family Hits Title? It doesn't deserve that recognition!

Holy crap, Chaotixhero! Why did you nt put this game on the list? It sucks! This is one of the worst Sonic games ever!

Hey someone finally says my name. Anyway I didn't liked it too but I enjoyed it. In other words, it is a game that we must never speak of again - Chaotixhero

How the hell is this not number 1?

7 Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

This should be in the top 5.
It has a ton of bugs and glitches and the game is just so boring. - Devlinjustus

8 Mario's Early Years: Preschool Fun

I know it's supposed to be "educational" but it's just a slap in the face. It's not fun, it's boring, and overall it's a embarrassment of the Mario franchise.

My reaction when I got thumbs down for showing my love towards the retro Mario platformers/hatred towards educational Mario games and recent Mario spin-offs: NO, GOD! NO GOD, PLEASE! NO! NO! NO! "

Why the anti-feminism?! Why the modernists?! Why the "it's for kids" excuse?! - The Ultimate Daredevil

9 New Super Luigi U

This is not a Mario game but it's a great game feeling like every level is a mad dash. - recaller

Honestly this game isn't bad. I actually like it WAY better than the original Mario U. It's not a Mario game, so it shouldn't even be here in the first place! - SupahGenie64

This game is awesome, apart from the fact it was a spin off of New Super Mario Bros. U, it was a phenomenal game and I don't wee why people hate it so much.

I personally like this game but hey, everyone likes different things

I like this game.

10 Sonic and the Secret Rings

This game was terrible. - noo7na7

Worst sonic game ever - Chaotixhero

The Contenders

11 Mario Teaches Typing
12 Mario Kart 8
13 Sonic Battle

Sonic Battle sucks. Fighting games don't belong on the gameboy advance anyway. Why? HERE IS YOUR EXAMPLE. You get a horrible overrated game like this - Chaotixhero

Man, everything about this game sucks! Talk about such an annoying boxart!

Hey, Chaotixhero! Please post your comment on the list.

14 Mario Party 10
15 Sonic R

Sonic R is awesome! Believe it or not, reviewers recieved this game positively, as so would I.

Can you feel the Sunshine? No, I feel the pain of this terrible game - Chaotixhero

16 Sonic Labyrinth

MOVE SONIC MOVE! Go faster go faster. Sigh... He is way too slow - Chaotixhero

17 Mario Party Advance
18 Sonic Free Riders

How is this BELOW Sonic and the Secret Rings?

This game has 5X as much issues except it doesn't have the badass music, good storyline, and it's not playable

This is the worst Sonic game ever! Oh my god! Terrible graphics, all the characters only being from the a Sonic franchise, awful voice acting and barely any controls in this game!

If this game wasn't on the Kinnet then Sonic Free Riders won't be so bad. I mean the graphics are amazing and the music is really good. - Chaotixhero

The game would be much better if it did Not have crappy controls on the kinect.

19 Sonic Pinball Party
20 Super Princess Peach

In the end, Peach nuts will love this game to death, toddlers and young children will enjoy this game a lot, everyone else should pick up Mario Kart DS, New Super Mario Bros, or the Mario and Luigi games. I think this game is really unique but it gets old really fast.

Rating: 6.7/10. - recaller

Worst Mario game ever! I hated Princess Peach anytime & I cannot believe critics reviewed that bastard positively!

This should be top 1! I don't even know why Super Mario 64 is higher on the list.

This, isn't even a Mario game. - recaller

21 Sonic Heroes

I finally have someone who agrees with me. I love it.

I love the game. - Chaotixhero

*beep* YOU! SONIC HEROES IS AWESOME! - SonicFan4Life

22 Super Mario Galaxy

The controls are bad. The gravity gimmick can cause cheap deaths. Voice acting is pointless. Their was no use anyway I mean if you want to use voice acting then do through the whole game not at the very last moment. Really? - Chaotixhero

Okay, I have played through this twice, and still enjoy it a lot. The controls are VERY easy to get used to, the gravity gimmick is amazingly well utilized, and so what if the voice acting was pointless? It was still nice to have, meaningful or not. Even if these were all flaws, these do NOT make a bad game, and the good FAR outweighs the bad. - PeterG99

The good think about this game is the music and the graphics. Also what happened to Luigi? I did not see him at the end. Plot hole alert. But if you found him at the end then good for U. Still... Even though the controls suck, you can easily notice that this game is way too easy. And the bosses are no challenge heck not even the final boss. - Chaotixhero

But it ramps up the difficulty when you get to the post game levels such as the purple coin levels. - recaller

Best game ever! You will regret puting this on here!

I think Sonic Boom and Sonic Lost World is better than this crap. Not that I am a Sonic fan but it is terrible. The sequel is decent I guess - Chaotixhero

23 Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

This game is weak! I mean, come on! This feels like an ordinary game. No potential, annoying voices, incomplete title, uncreative, silly bosses, Peach lets herself get kidnapped, awful ending, nothing epic nor special, confusing lines & awful story. And Vivian is annoying. At least this is a Paper Mario game, 'because Super Paper Mario is extremely amazing!

This game is awful! I hate everything about this game! I hope this game dies due to being PMTTYD, the awful story, Rogueport, the chapters, the universe, how overrated it is, confusing text, awful interludes, the involvement of Princess Peach/lack of Princess Daisy, the annoying characters, & extremely unoriginal! This game is irrelevant & Nintendo must be stubborn & fussy when making this game. I also found out that the GameCube saddened Shigeru Miyamoto, the head of Super Mario Team & director of the whole Mario franchise. Super Paper Mario is awesome, though.

The Thousand Year Door? What kind of name is that?!

I think the game is awesome. Please respect my opinion.

24 Mario is Missing
25 Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash
26 Sonic Adventure 2: Battle

This game was really good... Whoever put this here is a Classic Sonic fanboy. - noo7na7

True. This games awesome.

27 Mario Party 7
28 Sonic Shuffle

Mario party knock off here folks. nothing to see here

Oh this game is terrible! Why do people like this crap? - Chaotixhero

29 Mario Tennis Open

Worst roster in gaming history!

Why the hell are Peach & Daisy wearing dresses?! And why are they Technique-type players?! I hate this game! Terrible graphics, awful voices, Rosaina not replacing Peach & boring gameplay as well as lack of crossover!

Why peach and daisy are wearing dresses? What are you a pervert? They are girls for crying out load. - Chaotixhero

I strongly prefer Mario RPG games that are older than the Modern Mario Sports games (the most overrated Mario games in history) such as Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven Stars (especially).

30 Super Mario 3D World

I prefer Sonic 3D World. Yeah I said it - Chaotixhero

Princess Peach does not show compassion and grace in this game. This is why Mario 3D World is a letdown.

Hey! This is a good game! Take it down! - recaller

Super mario 3d world was one of the best things that happened to the franchise

31 Mario Power Tennis
32 Mario Kart Wii

This game is awful! There are many reasons why this game sucks. But here are the top 5 main reasons.

Top 1 is the annoying voices of Princess Peach, Princess Daisy & their baby selves.

Top 2 is when Princess Peach & Princess Daisy are wearing their dresses.

Top 3 is because most people worldwide strongly prefer Mario Kart Wii over all the Mario Kart games that are older than Double Dash, which are all much better than the modern Mario Kart games.

Top 4 is because this game is overrated, overplayed, overfamed & overused.

Top 5 is because it does not take place in Canada & have a story mode!

This game sucks! This is the worst Mario Kart ever tying with Mario Kart DS!

Does not take place in Canada? I don't even know how to respond to that... You know Mario games take place in their own world, right?

Worst Mario Sports title, or so one of the worst.

This game did not deserve to be the Mario Sports bestseller.

Chaotixhero, tell us why you hate this game.

I can see why so, many people hate this game but in my opinion this game is awesome! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Chaotixhero hates it too and he will post his comment.

33 Sonic Blast
34 Mario Kart 7
35 Super Mario 64

Only the DS version. I mean, come on! This is the best Mario game ever!

Why is SM64 on the list? Take it off right now! This is the best Mario game ever!

Super Mario 64 is awesome! This game deserves at least 400/100 stars! I bet Chaotixhero is responsible of putting this game on the list.

Super Mario 64 shold be on the very bottom of the list! It is a very perfect game which gets 10/10 stars.

36 Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour
37 Sonic Colors

Sonic Colors? I love sonic colors! I think the music is better than Sonic Adventure 2's music. - Chaotixhero

I love the soundtrack in Sonic Colors, but the voice acting sucks! And Classic Sonic is much better.

Classic Sonic is much better than Modern Sonic,

38 Mario Party 9
39 Sonic Unleashed

It's better than every single (except for Metroid Prime) metroid games - Chaotixhero

This game was good! - noo7na7

40 New Super Mario Bros.
41 Sonic Lost World
42 Sonic Adventure

I love Sonic Adventure. It better then the terrible Metroid games that's for sure - Chaotixhero

43 Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games
44 Mario Kart DS


I agree

45 Yakuman DS
46 Mario Party 6
47 Shadow the Hedgehog
48 Sonic Rush

Why Sonic Rush is bad? It's a great game - Chaotixhero

Because Sonic is slow even with the boost, the music sucks, the game is much harder than the original, the graphics suck, the voice acting is awful and it has Modern Sonic characters in it!

49 Mario Kart: Double Dash

Another great mario kart

This game is great!

This game is cool!
