The Ten Worst Console Games of this Generation

Sort by: Showing 10 items
Rating: List Type:
People who added this item 7 Average listal rating (4 ratings) 2.8 IMDB Rating 0
Metacritic Score (PS3): 17

The lowest rating numbers here at IGN are reserved for games with nearly no redeeming qualities or interesting ideas, with next to nothing enjoyable to offer players, and which under no circumstances should be purchased by anyone. Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust is, without a doubt, one of those games. - IGN

Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust is without a doubt one of the worst games in history. There isn't a single characteristic in the game that is worth spending your money on. With the buggy controls, it's the king of crap. Under any circumstances, do not buy this game. - Gamer.nl

Balls of Fury - Nintendo Wii
Metacritic Score (Wii): 19

It's been a good while since I've come across a game of this caliber, which is to say that I don't often see titles that suck this bad in this day and age. - IGN

A crappy ping pong game and a shitty movie license results in the second worst game of the console generation. Just look at that screen. I don't think anything else needs to be said.

Anubis II - Nintendo Wii
Metacritic Score (Wii): 19

Anubis II is one of the worst games ever created and fundamentally broken. If you play it, you can never get back the three hours you wasted on this unique brand of torture. - Gamespot

Anubis II and Ninjabread Man are the same game - literally. Developer Data Design Interactive creates the same games over and over with only minor artwork changes. Anubis II was reviewed more harshly than Ninjabread Man mainly because that latter at least has a semi-clever title.

Ninjabread Man - Nintendo Wii
Metacritic Score (Wii): 20

Ninjabread Man lasted half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Three levels down and I was booted straight back to the main menu without fanfare. I thought I'd pressed the Quit button by mistake... Half an hour and one hundred percent done. - Eurogamer

One of the most infamously bad games of all time, far fewer people have played Ninjabread Man than have heard about it. That's a good thing, because this horrible piece of shit simply doesn't work. Woe is the poor child who received this for a gift.

Cruis'n - Nintendo Wii
Metacritic Score (Wii): 25

The worst Wii game I've had the misfortune to play and a huge disappointment for Wii owners desperate for more arcade racing action. - Videogamer

No, it's not a cell phone game. Perhaps the ugliest game in years kicks of the Wii portion of the list. It's all downhill from here.
People who added this item 6 Average listal rating (2 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 0
Metacritic Score (360): 30

Shellshock 2 is a scandalous FPS made with no apparent knowledge of the genre, little but contempt for its audience, and few tools beyond a spluttering engine and a hammer. - Edge

Everyone loves games about the morally difficult Vietnam War, right? No? Well, then let's add some zombies. That should solve the problem.
People who added this item 6 Average listal rating (1 ratings) 3 IMDB Rating 0
Metacritic Score (PS3): 30

It's like the developers didn't even play the games that they were blatantly ripping off. - 1UP

Everyone hated this stealth-action mess on Xbox 360, and the PS3 port fared even worse. Take a look at that screenshot - can you believe it's from a game that came out in 2008?
People who added this item 9 Average listal rating (1 ratings) 2 IMDB Rating 0
Metacritic Score (PS3): 31

I have nothing positive to say about this game. I even hate the menu screen. Perhaps the best thing I can come up with is that this miserable piece of trash is so awful that it's destined to be the worst-selling game of the PS3 launch. - Game Informer

By far the worst game of the PS3 launch, Crossfire was a total mess. Bland, boring, frustrating and ugly, Crossfire was a disaster. Nothing says action like tons of obscure menu screens!
People who added this item 23 Average listal rating (17 ratings) 3.3 IMDB Rating 0
Bomberman: Act Zero - Xbox 360
Metacritic Score (360): 34

Bomberman Act: Zero is a perfect example of what happens when game developers have good intentions, but bad ideas. - GamerNode

One of the most misguided relaunches of all time, Hudson took the cute, cuddly Bomberman and made him "dark and edgy." The also removed all the fun from the game, with a single-player mode that was so damn near impossible no one even bothered with the passable multiplayer.

Damnation - PlayStation 3
Metacritic Score (PS3): 36

Blue Omega's vision is buried under so many layers of clumsy gameplay and painful cinematics that the glimmers of the game that could have been just can't stem the tide. - Play

That's from one of the few positive reviews Damnation received. Easily the best-looking game on this list, that wasn't enough to keep it from horrible reviews, thanks to serious glitches, sloppy gameplay and pretty much every other technical fault you can name.

The following ten games are the worst reviewed titles released to date for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii. A few caveats: In those instances in which a game appears on multiple platforms, the lowest score was used. Downloadable are not included on this list. Finally, I've taken a few of the Metacritic quotes and posted them for each game, so you can see what the original reviewers thought. With that, let the hatin' begin! --Anton Gordon (joystickdivision.com)
