Worst Nintendo 3DS Games


The Top Ten

1 Mario Party: Island Tour

I do agree that people are harsh towards the newer Mario Party games, because this game isn't really BAD or anything, but Nintendo completely changed the formula for 9, IT, and 10. Takes away much of the fun factor and strategy with those linear boards as opposed to boards with many paths that you go around yourself, less minigames, and the goal of going to the end of the track for the most mini stars as opposed to going around the board that ends in a set amount of turns, for which we can plan ahead and think about how we use our items and save coins from minigames after every turn and events on the board to receive stars. and Cube just isn't a great company.

I used to be a die-hard Mario Party fan. There's nothing wrong with the series itself. But the last two games have been really bad. The last good game was Mario Party DS, and that came out like seven years ago. And Mario Party 10 doesn't look too promising either.

I think some people are a little too harsh towards newer Mario Party games.

I got this game it's a okay game better then Mario Patty Star Rush

2 Paper Mario: Sticker Star

I know it's so much worse than the other Paper Mario games, but it's not bad on its own merits. Sure, there is no hints on where to go next and the combat is pointless (and there are no new villains or bosses), but if you aren't comparing it to the BEST GAMES OF ALL TIME, then maybe you guys could appreciate how well they implemented the paper/sticker gimmick, the cool music, and the interesting levels.

This game could have been the best, but no we HAD to take out the RPG elements. This and Super Paper Mario should not even be considered paper Mario games!

Wow! This Game Gets Boring Really Fast. I'll Definitely Prefer Super Paper Mario Over This Game For Sure. HECK YEAH! That Game Was A Hundred Times Better Than This.

The most boring game I've ever played.

3 Bird Mania 3D

Isn't this like a ripoff of Angry Birds or Flappy Bird? Seems like one. It should NOT be a 3ds game, it should be another one of those crappy iPhone apps! - RaccoonCartoon

Just hearing the title of it makes me uninterested! - docreywashere

4 Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal

If you do buy the game here's a heads up if you use knuckles on one of the levels keep pressing the jump button and you can fly

Okay, thanks for giving me a heads up. I will not tell my mum to buy it for my little brother

This game is bad it's gameplay I thought was suppose to be about speed but no you need the friggen explore through the level anywho the thing I don't like about this game is that you have to find all the crystals in the level you are on to move its boring and repetitive

Eww I hate this game

5 Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

This is one of the best games I've ever played. I have not played the first Luigi's mansion, and I really want Luigi's Mansion 3 soon. But who was stupid enough to put this on the list? I know that whatever gets put on the list originally is up to one person, and everyone has their own opinion, but once this was on the list, who was stupid enough to vote for it? If it's too complicated at the beginning, I understand. I think when you play this game for the first time, the first mansion is the hardest part of the game. But once you beat it, you get the hang of the puzzles and the rest of the game is a much smoother ride, aside from a couple difficult parts.

This game is awesome! Who put This here?

Screw You Losers Saying This Game Sucks, You Obviously Don't Know "Quality" Games - VideoGamefan5

6 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinty

I've played this game for almost a year and I liked it. However it got to the point towards the end where it was really difficult. - BadBoiDrummer

Bad but not this bad. More like honorable mention. Still awful though.

It's a good game on it's own, but trash in comparison to the old Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games. - RaccoonCartoon

One of the best 3ds games ever

7 Mario and Luigi: Dream Team

This game is the worst game I have ever played.

It should be high, it's such a bad game.

Useless, Boring, Overpriced.
What more could you want? - MOA_89

8 Battle of Giants: Dinosaurs - Fight For Survival

Worst fighting game ever worse than shaq fu - dinosaur

9 Tenkai Knights: Brave Battle

This is The gayest video game I've seen in me life, and how is this below mario and luigi? - VideoGamefan5

This Game Is Really Boring And Crappy - VideoGamefan5

10 Nintendo Badge Arcade

It's just an obvious cash grab. 3 Dollars for a crappy badge which does NOTHING at all? Don't forget that you don't even BUY the badge, you buy a CHANCE to get the badge, which is just a ripoff. Seriously, Nintendo, these are KIDS. You can't expect them to pay all their cash like this, their parents shouldn't be able to either! This should be 1 on the list. Just plain awful! - RaccoonCartoon

You have to pay just to get the badges? I think I'll just buy a theme with that money thanks, Nintendo.

Sometimes you get a shameless rip off of classic crane machines and make them into digital microtransactions. Sigh.

It's a freemium game, but it is such a cash grab with kids. $1.00 for 5 CHANCES for pictures! That is just a cash grab. Just go with the free plays and the free plays earned for the practice catcher.

PS. The time I've seen the arcade bunny the happiest is when you can switch to paid play. Get it?

11 Rayman Orgins

This is good not bad


Kinda boring is all 😕

12 Garfield Kart

Best anime rpg

It'a a complete rip off from Mario Kart 7!

U wot m8

Best gayme

13 Metroid Prime: Federation Force

It's so bad that even Samus tries to kill herself because she is the final boss in the end.

My legit reaction to Fed Force trailer: Oh, so it's Tri Force Heroes but with Metroid? 10/10 Nintendo, 10/10.

The game isn't even out yet.

It's out... And it's horrible.

14 Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games

That game did kind of suck because you can't really choose your character.

15 Transformers: Dark of the Moon - Stealth Force Edition

Never Get This Game, Michael Bay's Game - VideoGamefan5

16 Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games

Never played but I just assumed it wasn't good

Inferior version of Mario Party, and Mario Party itself sucks.


17 Mario Tennis Open

I was so hyped for it, I was disappointed. - RaccoonCartoon

18 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D

This game does not belong here

What the heck? I can respect opinions... but this is a GREAT game, and tons others agree...

Majora's mask was so much better and challenging than Ocarina of time. I'm not trying to be rude, but Ocarina of Time doesn't deserve all it's praise. All I here people say when a new Zelda game comes out is,"Oh,oh, Skyward Sword isn't as good as Ocarina of Time so it isn't worthy to be considered a Zelda game." It drives me nuts!

Its compelety terrible
