40. Burnout Paradise
The Burnout series has always been counted amongst racing series, and for good reason. The incredible sense of speed and the outrageous takedowns provide the amount of fun that few racers have been able to replicate. Burnout Paradise added a whole new twist to the franchise. It added the element of free roaming, and now, you could not only destroy traffic and other racers, but wreak havoc upon an entire city. It was extremely reminiscent of the awesome Need for Speed: Most Wanted, and while it was no Burnout 3, it still was extremely good.
39. Rock Band 2
There is a reason why Music/Rythm games sell so well. Yeah, they’re a lot of fun. Rock Band 2 improves over its predecessor in every way and contains one of the most diverse track lists ever. There are a lot of different gameplay modes here, and when it comes to replay value, it’s second to none. There are a plenty of accessories available for the game, which will make you feel like a true rockstar.
38. L.A. Noire
If you read our review for L.A. Noire, you would know by now that the reason we love it so much is because how it bridges the gap between video games and realism. Making excellent use of the Team Bondi’s MoCap Technology, the game featured ground breaking animations, based on which we had to solve investigations and crimes. It was certainly an ambitious, innovative project, and while it did have faults of its own, L.A. Noire is a game no one will soon forget.
37. Motorstorm Apocalypse
Do you like Earthquakes? Then you will like this game. Fast paced arcade racing is here with Motorstorm Apocalypse. This game is completely different from the past Motorstorm games, as it takes place in a Urban environment, with plenty of hazards. The sense of speed in this game is amazing, and while not as good as Burnout Paradise, it will still make your jaw drop.
36. Far Cry 2
Far Cry 2 is bashed by many people- people say that after the excellent Far Cry 1, FC2 was a disappointment. But once you shed your sky high expectations and your biases and get down to playing Far Cry 2 again, you realize that it was, on its merits, an excellent game. It’s visual fidelity is till this day matched by few, and its intense shootouts, unique twist at a health system, dramatic mid-battle self operations and infinite hours of gameplay made it into one hell of a game.
35. Super Street Fighter IV
Some may call this an incremental upgrade, but fighting game fans seem to disagree. It is highly rated for a reason. Plenty of characters and plenty of amazing moves, this game has it all. All of the characters are available here from Ryu to M Bison, but it would be better you find them out by yourself, as this game needs to be in your gaming collection. The DualShock 3 D-Pad is actually very helpful here.
34. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
The PS3 port of the excellent Ninja Gaiden 2 on the Xbox 360, Sigma 2 provided us with the same intense action and brutal sword fights that made Ninja Gaiden Sigma so good. Sure, one of its modes was pretty useless (arousing too), and the motion controls did not really work that well, but the extreme action and the severe brutality of the game was enough to keep us all going.
33. Dead Space 2
Do you love linear action-horror games? Yes? Then you have to get Dead Space. It would be preferable if you have played the first game also, as Dead Space 2 contains some elements from that, but it’s not necessary. I wouldn’t call this a horror game, but it can get pretty scary sometimes if you put your guard down. The shooting mechanics are quite good as well, and it’s one of the games that you need to have in your collection.
BioShock is not only one of the best games of this generation, it’s also one of the best games ever, period. It was an ambitious project that provided us with an incredibly atmospheric and refreshing experience. The campaign as long and thrilling, the story was brilliant and the world of Rapture was hauntingly beautiful. We sure can’t wait to get our hands on Infinite and see what direction it takes the series.
31. FIFA 12
One may wonder that how the hell EA does manages to outdo the last FIFA game in just one year, but we aren’t going to delve too much into that. But one thing is for certain, FIFA 12 is the best football game ever released. They have actually managed to improve so much here, that it is really bewildering. If you are looking for a football game on the PS3, look no further as EA has you covered.
