10 Most Dissapointing DS Games Since Launch

"Nintendo’s handheld system has been home to many incredible titles, including some that pushed the boundaries of genres and paved the way for touchscreen gaming. On the flipside, many of the system’s most promising games ultimately failed to live up to expectations and left us feeling a disappointed, underwhelmed, and possibly a little cheated." - GameZone (Dementium II, Drawn to Life, Hotel Dusk: Room 215, Nintendo DS, Sands of Destruction, Super Scribblenauts, Touch The Dead)

I really enjoyed 'Hotel Dusk.' It made me nostalgic for the point-and-click PC adventure games of the 90's.

Same here, I really enjoyed that game. The story was good and I loved the film noire style.

Scribblenauts never lived up to the hype for me, I didn't quite get all the praise to The World Ends With You either.

If I get a DS, this list might be useful for things to mostly avoid.

Completly the opposite.
Both Hotel Dusk and Super Scribblenauts are fantastic.

The DS has a sh*tload of great games, albeit, it does have its underwhelming ones also, most being in the form of shovelware. You'd definitely go broke picking up the good games on the system, but you wouldn't do your DS justice by avoiding most of those games.

Hotel Dusk is to date my favourite DS title and is a fantastic game. Its Sequel is also and incredible thought-provoking hand-held title. Both games grip you, I was unable to stop playing both until completion.

Hotel Dusk had a sequel???? How did I miss this... Title please?

"Last Window: The Secret of Cape West", I hope you enjoy it, its a fantastic game. Its a shame the Developers (Cing) filed for Bankruptcy, they knew how to make such great games...

The reason why you probably didn't know that Hotel Dusk had a sequel (called "Last Window") is because it was never released in USA. Only in Japan and Europe.

Sadly, Cing went bankrupt and we'll most likely never get another Kyle Hyde story after Last Window.

bad list, bad.. good games from a list: super scribblenauts, dementium 2, puzzle quest 2, nanostray, touch the dead.. didn't play few others..

Glad someone called out Hotel Dusk. Whoever planned that game has absolutely no idea how to make a game or write a story.

From the goddamn ridiculous parts where you'd have to recap the story and puzzles that you JUST SOLVED OR DIE to the horrible implementation of puzzles. Adventure games in their old form are sadly and truly dead, and this game helped to send them to their grave.

I loved the first Scribblenauts but I felt that the second game just didn't cut it in terms of its puzzles. While the first game encouraged you to solve brain teasers YOUR way, Super Scribblenauts required specific answers and quickly become more of a guessing game. Total letdown.

Wow everyone is intitled to their own opinions. I do not agree with a few on this list and I have certainly played way worse. Thanks for the list anyway, just goes to show not everyone have the same taste in entertainment.

Glad to hear someone else admit Hotel Dusk is boring. And Scribblenauts.. Jesus
