    Sonic Boom actually is a horribly-programmed game. Framerate issues (like, very very bad), glitches, the game is just very poorly done. The reviews of these games are just...proving how bad they are.

    If you love Just Dance, steer clear from Just Dance 4. It's horrible on the Wii U. Just Dance 2014 is very good and Just Dance 2015 thankfully runs on the same engine as the former, so the difference is just in the songs and available DLC. It's really the only series IMO that Ubisoft has that's decent. I just wish they finally added MotionPlus support... Cheating is all too easy. :(

    Yes.
    Why did ZombiU make the list? The game may not appeal to everyone, but it surely isn't bad enough to be put in the "Worst WiiU Games" category.

    I can see this getting ugly really fast. :)

    I know Zombi U is dirt cheap on the used circuit but so is Monster Hunter 3 and I hear that is good.

    The thing with Monster Hunter is that it has clear trends. It's most popular at launch and has a strong few months, but then declines gradually a lot. People are anticipating the next major Monster Hunter for the 3DS. Even I let go of my Wii U Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate copy, because I imported Monster Hunter 4 (for 3DS) from Japan.

    I'm afraid so and I somewhat regret because of how atrocious they are, plus, the reviews are pretty bad too. I can't even say anything to defend any of these games, that's how awful they are.

    Fast & Furious: Showdown could be your type of game which is so bad that it's good because of the laughable voice acting, gameplay and physics.

    ZombiU looks like an early Xbox 360 launch title, game's pretty boring, uninteresting and it shouldn't have been a Wii U exclusive. It's ridiculous how Kotaku and others include this crappy game on their "Best Top 10 Games of Wii U" as if the Wii U doesn't actually have good games to feature this PoS.

    I wish the Wii U would've gotten State of Decay instead, now that's a proper survival zombie game!

    People are actually defending Sonic Boom? It's on the list for a reason, the game runs like crap and has crappy voice acting, the game's a mess. That's sad.

    No, but people are criticizing the list of the worst Wii U games. Sonic Boom deserves to be in it.

    I didn't notice anyone criticizing the list... I wouldn't put ZombiU on that list though. It isn't my cup of tea, but it's not bad.

    Sonic Boom is on a lot of "Worst Top 10 Games of 2014" and one of them being Jim FUCKING Sterling son! (he was given this cool title thanks to a shitty Steam dev, lol)

    I concur with the ZombiU statements. Take it off the list. Arguably the only reason it's there right now is because the thread maker has a personal grudge against it.
