There are at least 10 great games to play on Wii U and, as the recent Nintendo Direct proved, there is a bright future for Nintendo's new console. Yet, there are also some sub-50 stinkers that you should steer clear of even if you see them in the bargain bin. Here are the worst Wii U games.
9. Marvel Avengers: Battle For Earth
What is it? Marvel Avengers dumbs down the fighting game, enabling you to fight as the likes of Captain America, Iron Man and Hulk by tapping icons on the GmaePad's touchscreen. You'll be taking on the dastardly Skrulls who have invaded dear old Planet Earth and it's up to you to stop them...
There's nothing wrong with the idea as it makes fighting games accessible for those who can't be bothered to remember combos and, anyway, it worked well in Super Street Fighter IV 3D and Dead Or Alive Dimensions on 3DS but Marvel Avengers: Battle For Earth is too simple.
What we said: We applaud Battle For Earth's unique approach to simplistic fighting, but its lack of content and depth won't impress anyone but the most junior gamers.
