5) Balls of Fury
To at least start on a positive note, Balls of Fury was a pretty good film. That being said the game was fairly good as wellâ€¦minus the textures, animations, character models, sound, broken waggle controls, storyline, physics, and the over all game engine. Just take those things out and youâ€™d have a semi decent game. In all seriousness, Balls of Fury is the worst â€œsportsâ€ game that Iâ€™ve unfortunately been able to play. Blah!
Ah, Cruisâ€™n USA. You were a fairly good racer back on the N64. A fast paced arcade racer with plenty of crazy elements that broke some ground back in the mid 90s. Too bad your Wii cousin makes players want to vomit all over themselves. Cruisâ€™n is easily one of the worst looking Wii titles to date. Everything from cars to environments look blocky, flat, and just plain crappy. Controls are actually decent, but thereâ€™s not enough motivation to use them in a race.
3) Ninjabread Man
Developed by Data Design Interactive, Ninjabread Man plays as bad as it sounds. Hereâ€™s a basic play by play. You jump and fall. You slash at air. Jump some more. It doesnâ€™t get any better than that. Bugs, glitches, and plenty of technical issues plague this wretched game from start to credits. Almost makes you want to buy the game just to say you own itâ€¦or not.
2) Chicken Shoot
Yes, yes, Chicken Shoot for the Wii. This is one game I suggest you play just to get a hands on definition of shovelware. Chicken Shoot is a point and click arcade-like title that has youâ€¦shooting chickens. I could even program this garbage in 20 minutes. Itâ€™s that simple. The artstyle/graphics look very similar to the side scrolling Zelda adventures on the failed Philips CD-I. Thatâ€™s not a good thing.
Take a guess on which developer created Anubis II. Our good friends, Data Design Interactive who developed number 3 on our list. Anubis II is bad. Really bad. Like Superman 64 bad. Yeahâ€¦really. Take every level design, song, menu, and the exact same game engine from Ninjabread Man, add Egyptian textures, and you have yourself a copy of Anubis II. Total lamesauce. Blah!
Games like the above are the corrupting viruses that make up over three fourths of the Wii library. Youâ€™re always going to have crappy games run through consoles software, but the Wiiâ€™s success just adds fuel to the fire.
One thingâ€™s for sureâ€¦donâ€™t ever put these disks in your system.
Have you ever owned any of the above games? What other stinkers have come to the Wii?
