The best on PS3

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Games -

WITH the year al­most over, it’s time to choose our five favourite PlayS­ta­tion 3 ti­tles of 2010.

1. GOD OFWARIII (MA)

KILLING is Kratos’ busi­ness and busi­ness is good. God of War III pushes the se­ries to even more epic heights, with spec­tac­u­lar set-pieces an­chored by some of the best com­bat me­chan­ics around.

2. NEED FOR SPEED: HOT PUR­SUIT (G)

COPS ver­sus rac­ers. It’s a bat­tle as old as an­tiq­uity . . . or per­haps as old as the in­ven­tion of the mo­tor car. Ei­ther way, Hot Pur­suit is fast, gor­geous and has bril­liant on­line func­tion­al­ity.

3. HEAVY RAIN (MA)

A NEW high wa­ter­mark for in­ter­ac­tive sto­ry­telling. In this grip­ping thriller, ev­ery de­ci­sion the player makes al­ters the course of the game. Can you stop the se­rial killer be­fore it’s too late?

4. SU­PER STREET FIGHTER IV (PG)

THE lat­est ti­tle in the ven­er­a­ble fight­ing se­ries is burst­ing with en­ergy. New char­ac­ters bring even more per­son­al­ity, while the ink-splashed vis­ual style is un­be­liev­ably slick.

5. GRAN TURISMO 5 (G)

THIS rac­ing sim­u­la­tion isn’t per­fect but it’s noth­ing if not am­bi­tious and has a fear­some ar­ray of con­tent. From the 1000+ strong garage to the wide va­ri­ety of rac­ing dis­ci­plines and fea­tures, it of­fers a lot.
