This generation of hardware has seen some of the best exclusives in recent memory. The Nintendo Wii is no different from the other two major consoles we’ve covered on this topic. The Wii has a very respectable lineup of terrific exclusives, but there’s just no way to deny the piles of bad games that have blemished the image of the little white innovative platform. With the introduction of motion-controlling to the mainstream came a tidal wave of bad shovelware. We all know the names of the great exclusives like Zelda, Mario and Metroid, but what about all those horrible games that end up in the hands of innocent and naïve gamers? We’re looking at those games. Here’s Gameplay Today’s list of the worst exclusives to hit the Nintendo Wii.
Kidz Sports: International Soccer
Sports games fill a good deal of the Wii’s library of software. Sadly most of them are pretty bad. Kidz Sports: International Soccer takes bad sports games to a whole new level though. With bad graphics, poor gameplay and clearly rushed design, there’s nothing to like about this one. Then again, that’s the case with every game on this list.
Jenga: World Tour
Who actually thought this one up? Let’s go ahead a take one of the most boring family games and turn it into a videogame. This isn’t just standard Jenga though. This comes with the added challenge of broken controls and cheesy environments to play a boring game with broken controls. A true winner and another reason games not made by Nintendo for the Wii suck.
Despite being a surprisingly popular game on the sales charts, this game is beyond boring. The Nintendo Wii has proven on multiple occasions that a sub par title can defy logic and sell well just because there isn’t any other quality content to provide competition at retail. Just Dance is the shining example that this has been the case on the Wii.
