M&M's Kart Racing is a shovelware racing video game released in 2007 for the Nintendo Wii and the Nintendo DS, based on the M&M's license and developed by Frontline Studios and published by DSI Games. It is often considered to be one of the worst video games of all time.
Why It Sucks
- Horrible controls.
- Dreadful camera angles.
- Ugly, outdated and blocky models that look like a late Nintendo 64 game.
- Low quality textures.
- Repetitive and annoying voice clips. The most annoying sound clip is the "Approaching sound barrier!" line played when you are getting close to the maximum speed of the vehicle.
- Barely uses the license at all.
- Long loading times. Even the game's official website had to put a screenshot of the loading screen.
- Incredibly generic music.
- The multiplayer option doesn't support more than two players.
- Numerous bugs and glitches.
- Slow gameplay.
- The game makes an ear-scratchingly annoying sound when the player crashes to a wall.
