10 Worst PS4 Games of All Time | whatoplay
Sure, ARK: Survival Evolved is a great MMO
game, but this VR take on the Jurassic Park-like
experience isn’t as grand as everyone thought
ARK Park has glaring issues.
First, it’s obvious development was rushed.
Resulting in an unfinished mess.
Second, it’s expensive for a glorified tech
Intended as a groundbreaking VR title, it
disappointed most of the ARK player base with
Chinese developer Snail Games’ shady cash-grabbing
Graphics-wise, the game is impressive.
Every detail feels like you’re part of a
Jurassic Park movie.
However, the rest is clunky, controls are
wonky and movement is a vertigo-inducing trip.
Cubed3’s Drew Hurley criticized the gameplay
loop, saying that, “The gathering is grindy,
the crafting unrewarding, and the combat boring
He gave it a 3 out of 10.
It’s devoid of all the great things that
made Survival Evolved fun to play at.
Performance-wise, compared to the abysmal
PC version, this PS4 port is a smoother experience…
but that doesn’t mean it’s still good.
It receives a playscore of a 5.33.
Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma – Volume One
Rare is a game SO BAD the developers decided
to cancel every future plan of the project
and remove it from the face of the Earth,
they even had to issue refunds to those who
It was so terrible they no longer want to
complete the next two volumes.
It’s based on a very popular manga about
afro samurais and hip-hop.
It’s a huge downgrade from the first Afro
Samurai game from 2009, which received favorable
Calling this game “bad” is an understatement.
To start off, it has no direction.
The entire pilgrimage of the hero is never
Every time it comes close to major story development,
the game completely forgets about it.
The blatant sexism, the terrible gameplay
and a bit of bug in between, it is an obvious
Of all the reviewers, Destructoid hated the
game so much they gave it a 1.
Reducing its review to two words: ‘Digital
Seppuku’ I mean, come on.
There’s no reason to seriously consider
buying this game, even the devs are removing
it from most major video game stores.
At least the soundtrack is a banger.
It has a playscore of 5.16.
Considered as a spin-off for Front Mission,
Square’s brand-new action-survival game
feels like a hot topic version of Metal Gear.
The game takes you to the dark and gritty
future where technology is rampant and mechs
are a thing.
You take control of three protagonists with
different perspectives, sounds cool, right?
According to most players, the game is ‘complete
The game’s lackluster content makes you
feel that the devs knew what they were doing
when they named it Left Alive.
Most of the game’s issues come from its
performance issues that come alongside a triple-A
There’s no good reason to purchase this
title in its current state, or maybe forever.
Push Square gave it a 2 out of 10.
Disappointed by everything the game delivered.
Saying that, “Left Alive categorically fails
at everything it sets out to accomplish”.
It’s a shame since a lot of talented people
from popular video game franchises extended
their help only to produce this… abomination.
It’s better off dead, really.
It receives a playscore of 5.13.
Tennis World Tour
Sports games can be bad too, especially when
the developers don’t bother trying.
Tennis World Tour was supposed to be the new
standard for Tennis.
You could choose from a wide variety of iconic
professional players and even experience a
You might be asking, “How is it bad when
it follows the same formula as other sports
The answer is, like most games on this list,
it is an incomplete mess.
Even after a year since its release, no major
improvements were made to the game regarding
its slow movement and game-breaking bugs.
Not to mention the shady practice from the
Dual Shockers gave it a 3 out of 10.
Attacking the game’s terrible marketing
They said, “It’s one thing to not have
key features at launch, but the absence of
solid gameplay puts the final nail in the
The game might appease some casual players,
but those who spend the full price would think
it to be a waste of their money and their
Other Foreign reviewers, such as Multiplayer
and IGN Italy both gave it a 5 out of 10.
At least they’re a bit forgiving, but still
share the same concerns from most people.
It has a playscore of a 5.04.
This is an unexpected disappointment from
the company that gave us the horrifying Until
Dawn and even The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan.
Bravo Team is a VR shooter and another victim
of rushed development.
Only created within 13 months, it gave a bad
rep for Supermassive Games considering that
they should know better.
It was intended to be this groundbreaking
VR shooter but unfortunately, it was far from
Its cover-shooter elements are broken and
it doesn’t feel like it’s a 2018 game.
Aside from that, the enemies are bullet sponges
that make no sense.
Their AI is so bad it feels like they wanted
to die with the game too.
TechRaptor was furious and confused by the
Giving it a 2 out of 10.
Saying that “It is absolutely baffling how
truly bad Bravo Team really is.
Nothing about this game screams “this is
a final product ready for release”.”
It is marred by numerous bugs and various
performance issues resulting from the rushed
It is as expected.
Bravo Team is FUBAR and it has a playscore
of a 5.04.
THE QUIET MAN
Another example of ambitious titles that failed
The Quiet Man is Square Enix’s immersive
narrative-driven story accompanied by an energetic
combat and live-action sequences.
They even had the gall to hire actors for
this one but to be fair, they’re kinda good,
the game is just bad.
It has a really interesting concept, but horrible
The entire game is set within ‘one night’
and it showcases Square’s seamless mix of
Live-Action elements and CGI… but it all
boils down to one thing: IT’S BORING.
Cultured Vulture’s Ashley Bates gave it
a 2 out of 10, saying that, “…consider
it a fairly cheap palette cleanser that’ll
make you appreciate the much better games
on the market.”
Most of the major concerns come from its ‘silent
world’ since you take control of a deaf
You literally can’t hear anything at all.
There are no subtitles even when other people
It’s a conceptual catastrophe that failed
to capture the real intention of the creators
for the players.
Even GameSpot gave it a 2 out of 10.
Criticizing the boring combat.
Saying that the“Simplistic, ungainly combat
is all the more surprising given that it is
The Quiet Man’s only gameplay mechanic.”
It receives a playscore of a 5.02
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5
It’s heartbreaking to see one of our favorite
childhood games get sequels that don’t even
compare to the original.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is a sad and disappointing
follow-up to a legendary series.
To make the long story short, it’s a technical
Most of the controls don’t even work as
intended and the classic attitude that made
Pro Skater great was gone.
Jimquisition’s Jim Sterling gave it a 2
out of 10.
Saying that, “Tony Hawk 5 looks like the
burned corpse of a three-legged sheep and
plays like the results of teaching a chimpanzee
how to code.”
Even with an online mode, it’s better you’re
doing it offline on your own as it adds no
variety to the gameplay.
The lack of social features make multiplayer
tedious, jarring and could cause some performance
drops to your gameplay.
GamesRadar gave it a 1.5 out of 5, citing
that “..it’s a constant reminder of how
much greater the originals were, and how much
you’d rather be playing them instead.”
Purchasing this game at its full retail price
is a terrible idea.
Just like most of the criticisms from this
game, you’re better off playing the classics
It has a playscore of a 4.90
Horror games are a unique bunch.
As long as they scare the crap out of us,
they have the pass to be ‘okay’ and we’d
recommend it to our friends.
Weeping Doll is unlike any other horror game.
It’s a cheap pandering for the fans of the
genre with its uninspired and generic designs.
It’s a VR title that tries to accomplish
something great with its haunting atmosphere,
but fails to retain its consistency in its
short game time.
ZTGD gave it a 3, citing that, “…it’s
not even terrifying; the only thing scary
is how disappointingly mediocre this experience
There’s a lot of horror games on the market
and Weeping Doll shares no distinctiveness
to the other great titles.
It’s a shame, considering the visuals are
GameSpew disliked the game’s presentation,
giving it a 4 out of 10.
Saying that “The confusing set pieces, empty
story, and rough dialogue will distract you
from enjoying the experience.”
It sets a lesson that horror games don’t
always have to be played in Virtual Reality.
It has a playscore of a 4.78.
Also another example of a game that you’re
better off playing with its original version.
Road Rage is a shoddy racing game with open-world
As a rider, it is your job to own the streets
and smack those who stand in your way.
But underneath it… testosterone-fueled presentation,
it’s an underwhelming game with no reason
Everything is monotonous and it gets pretty
repetitive doing the same missions again and
TSA was so annoyed at its gameplay loop, especially
the unfulfilling combat and ‘road raging’.
They gave it a 2 out of 10.
Saying that the game has “…become harder
to tolerate knowing just how deeply unfulfilling
the core gameplay is, even when you factor
in the budget price tag.”
It is a terrible title that leaves no satisfaction
at the end of the road.
It’s a shame since the PS1 classic was so
It has a playscore of a 4.56.
This pathetic excuse of a Bomberman inspired
game is still the reigning champion of Whatoplay’s
worst PlayStation 4 games.
It is so terrible the devs decided to remake
the game from the ground up, giving it free
for the poor players who purchased it.
Just like Bomberman, you blow up your enemies
But Basement Crawl isn’t just that… it
also has major horror elements and it’s
sad nobody gets to feel its bone-chilling
atmosphere due to its… abysmal performance
In addition to that, the game’s other major
concern comes from its easily exploitable
Hacks and game-breaking bugs plague its servers,
ruining the entire experience.
There is no sense going back to this already
broken title so it’s best we leave it in
PS Universe gave it a 4 out of 10, saying
that, the game “…tries hard to recapture
the magic of Bomberman but has a hard time
with its horror theme, lack of a real tutorial,
and online connectivity issues.“
There’s no saving this one and it sets another
lesson to the developers that games should
be polished before its release.
There’s no point releasing unfinished products
only to issue refunds.
The rest of the reviewers, including IGN,
GameSpot, GamesRadar, Polygon and Destructoid
all had one thing in common to say about this
trainwreck: It’s best we play the original
It has a playscore of a 4.26
