Top 6 Worst Nintendo Wii Games

The Nintendo Wii had a plethora of terrible games. Every movie, tv show, and cartoon had a themed game on the Wii. Companies would release terrible games hoping they would sell off of the licensed characters alone. Here is a list of the worst Nintendo Wii games.



Anubis 2

Anubis 2 came out for Wii back in 2007. It also came out on PS2… in 2005. Yeah, they ported a 2-year old game and tacked on some Wii controls. But the game itself was already unbearable! Bug-ridden and repetitive, many a gamer could, at almost every level, fall through the bottom of the map and get stuck, having to restart the level and repeat the same humdrum tasks of badly designed enemies to annoying, upbeat music. There are only two attacks in the game, and thanks to bad programming, most of the shots you manage to hit while struggling with the controls don’t even register anyway. Anubis, you rascal! You must have gotten the Gods angry! For extra points, the game was packaged without a plot. The only hint is the one paragraph in the manual, which tells you you’re good, one guy is evil and you’re stopping him. To be fair, that’s pretty much what Mario is. This is just, you know, the opposite.


Wii Play

What Moron put Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, Kirby's Epic Yarn and New Super Mario Bros. Wii those were great Wii games, as for Wii play this game is incredibly boring and repetitive most people bought Wii Play only for the Extra Controller which was genius on the part of the creators take a crappy game that nobody wants and sell it along with an extra controller.



Action Girlz Racing

The controls are awful! The art is distasteful! The track designs are messed up! The graphics are broken! There are way too many bug's! And the sexism levels are off the charts! Do not under any circumstances play this game!


Game Party

Let me just quote Eurogamer’s review here: ““The Game Party experience is like going to a party where there’s nothing to drink but Tesco Value brandy and there are only four other guests and they’re all racist and then your ex turns up and gets off with a Danish supermodel.” Aside from bringing back some traumatic memories, Eurogamer is giving you a fair warning: while this game beats most on the list by simply having multiplayer, if you ask anyone to play it with you I’m pretty sure it’s legal for them to murder you. The controls are retched and leave most doing random movements, and even that has little success. The games themselves range from things like darts and table hockey, and they almost pulled of recreating them – they just forgot to include the part that’s fun! You’ll be happy to know since the game is so bad, it couldn’t live with just one sequel. Yeah, Game Party 3 is out.


Showtime Championship Boxing

I love boxing. I love watching it, playing simulations of the art, and even playing arcade action titles based on the glorious sport. Showtime Championship Boxing had a lot going for it in terms of a boxing game. Showtime as a network, next to HBO (RIP HBO boxing), is a heavyweight in terms of boxing platforms.

So, them putting out a game based on boxing makes sense. They understand the art really well. Too bad the studio behind it had no idea what boxing is all about. This motion-controlled game tried to use the Wii's motion controls. The key word in that sentence is tried.


Balls of Fury

A game based on a movie never bodes well, but a game based on a movie nobody watched or remembered means very little time or effort was probably expended on this garbage. Balls of Fury is the only game that I remember launching straight into bargain bins. And I've never seen the game on sale for over $1 myself.  Look, ping pong on the Wii makes perfect sense. The ability to take advantage of the motion controls seems like a no-brainer. The tennis game in Wii Sports was loads of fun and the table tennis mini-game in Wii Play was pretty okay. Needless to say, you should stick to those titles if you want an actual game.
