    Medal of honor shouldn't be considered a game with bad graphics, reason being the console it was on. The fact that they got that out of the GBA is actually quite impressive

    Doom 2 on GBA was also a bad port. From FPS issues to the inability to circle strafe or easily use the controls.

  • Keiji Johnson
    Keiji Johnson 7 месяцев назад

    Oh come on now! Hyrule Warriors Legends is a part of the list?! I mean I know that the frame rate isn’t good on the regular 3DS or on other consoles, but the game is still quite playable, especially when played on the New 3DS. Same goes to the Vita version of Minecraft. And you were just starting off well with MoH Underground GBA...😒

    The thing to note is that the vita releases of Borderlands 2 and Minecraft got patched multiple times which significantly boosted the framerate. You can also overclock the console if you mod it allowing borderlands 2 to pull around 30 fps in many cases

    The developers are not to blame, they had to try to optimize it as best as possible and try to make the controls comfortable because of the shortage of them

    Honestly, Snake eater 3d doesn't seem all that bad. It got positive reviews, fans enjoyed it, and it's handheld port of a metal gear solid game, which we have never gotten before. No, the GBC Metal Gear solid does not count.

  • Omega Coolster

  • Darren Spohn

    Regarding hyrule warriors.
    The reason it was not exclusive to the new 3ds is because that would have limited the sales. And thw game likely would not have sold enough copies to make back the development costs.

  • Matthew Strampe

    TBH the Lego Movie Videogame for the 3DS and stuff was pretty bad. The levels were bad and it was super difficult because once you died, you'd have to start all over, unlike the console versions, where you would respawn right where you died. The other handheld Lego games had bad graphics, as well. The thing is that the handheld devices had more power than the GameCube, and that still had full fledged console games.

    Minecraft on PS Vita is not so bad as to deserve a place on this list. I have spent countless hours on Minecraft Vita (and am still playing it, along with 79% of Minecraft players out there).
    Agreed, Vita is not the best way to experience a game as immersive as Minecraft, yet it was (I mean _is_ ) the best way to play it on-the-go even today!!
