Anubis II rated worst Wii game

Anubis II rated worst Wii game

Popular product advice site Testfreaks has rated Anubis II as the worst game on the Wii system, awarding it a lowly 1 out of 10.

Despite its name, the game isn't actually a sequel to anything, thankfully there is no Anubis I. Set in Egypt, you take control of Anubis, a supposed guardian of the underworld in the form of a jackal thing with a shiny staff.

Like all the other Popcorn Arcade titles, Anubis II has been slammed critically across the board for shoddy development using the "GODS" engine made by Data Design Interactive. Popular complaints include:

  • Bad camera.
  • Ugly environments.
  • Sparse sound effects and awful soundtrack.
  • Impossible minigames.
  • Almost identical to Ninjabread Man.

Should Nintendo exercise some quality control in extreme cases like these? For all intents and purposes Anubis II is considered broken. As a general rule, if Popcorn Arcade is on the box or Data Design are involved, don't even think about it.

So what this happens, there's always been 90% crap on top systems. It's never going to get close to Superman 64 (worst game for a Nintendo).

This game is not just worst, it is completely unplayable. I would rather play Pong instead of this and Pong has being out for ages.

Just when I thought that no game could dethrone Superman 64. Maybe they called it Anubis II in the hopes of making a prequel. Can't wait for Anubis I.

Wow, I've never even heard of this game. Thanks for telling me about it jerk, now I'm going to have nightmares about this for the rest of my life. Thank you so much jkjkjk.

If Nintendo started doing quality control, they would have absolutely no time to work on games, because they would have to keep resending the horrible games back to the publishers, and that's pretty much all of them.

Let me rephrase that, this game is probably better than Sonic Shuffle, Bubsy 3D, Altered Beast (for Ps2), The Smurfs, Fight for Life, Captain Novolin, Kabuki Warriors, Custer's Revenge or E.T.. No game could be worse than those 10. I didn't just mean unplayable, I meant poisonous.

These retarded developers think that, because it's on the Wii, and all kinds of people enjoy the Wii, that it will sell well. They really need to stop letting crappy developers who put no effort into their games.

Hopefully the economic crisis will destroy companies like this.
