Playstation 3 is the holy grail of Sony. It has everything sweet; graphics, great games, and loyal fan base. Today, it’s not the glory we will highlight, but the frustration resulting from few of the worst experiences on Playstation 3.
Originally released on PC and Xbox 360 platforms, F.E.A.R. suffered when it was ported to the PlayStation 3. Visually the PS3 version looked way too blurry and was overall sluggish and slow. If not for the technical issues, it would have been a good title.
9. Sonic the Hedgehog
Sonic the Hedgehog makes the list of one of the worst Playstation 3 due to glitches it came with, they were many. Loading times on every level are extremely slow, leaving gamers constantly waiting for their PS3 console and not playing. Despite brightly colored graphics, the detail is somewhat blurry and bland.
8. Quake Wars
Quake was the game that revolutionized FPS and took it to a whole new level. PS3 version of Quake Wars is by far the ugly ducking. On PC Quake Wars looked pretty impressive, with nice lighting, and a great draw distance – and it above all, it ran quite well on a modest PC.
Though the PS3 game suffers from a poor frame rate, appears to lack the impressive lighting of the 360 game and hasn’t had as much care put into its in-game menu designs.
Haze has an awful story and terrible artificial intelligence with other gameplay elements inconsistent at best.
6. PES 2008
Oh dear. Where do I begin with the Playstation 3 version of PES 2008. Although released at the same time as the Xbox 360 and PC versions, all the signs pointed towards a botched port job. The frame rate in the original un-patched release were at the one of the worst levels we have ever seen in high profile game.
The ground textures were atrocious and the online play was broken. Considering PES 2008 was hyped up to be better on PS3, the final game turned out to be one of the biggest disappointments.
5. Terminator Salvation
Terminator Salvation should have been a good game. Fighting for the survival of the human race against SkyNet seems like a cool premise. However, it disappoints players with a poor game presentation and anti-climatic cut scenes.
Gameplay is boring and not engaging. Even the Terminators you encounter are uninspiring and not too difficult to kill with your PS3 controller. The game is also short with only two levels of difficulty, limiting its re-playability.
4. Knights Contract
This games soon gets on your nerves by offering repetitive escort missions. It’s just frustrating when you don’t have much of ambition and only thing you end up doing is ESCORT.
3. Prison Break: The Conspiracy
What’s worse than a terrible game adaptation of a new summer blockbuster like Iron Man 2? Easy. Prison Break: The Conspiracy, a terrible game adaptation of a successful television show. If you’re unfortunate enough to play Prison Break, you’ll immediately wonder what part of this shoddily constructed piece of programming could have possibly taken the developers so long to wrap up.
Guards that walk in robotic loops and don’t react when you commit a crime or discuss secret escape plans within two feet of their faces? Missions that are rarely more involved than “fetch me a shiv”?.
2. Lost Planet
If you could have survived the low frame rates, you would have to wait for ages to get in the game. One of the worst experiences on the Playstation 3, considering the game was critically acclaimed on PC and ran fine on Xbox 360.
1. Leisure Suit Larry
Bad jokes are frequent in this embarrassing video game. Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust qualifies as one of the worst Playstation 3 game. To torture you further, the game suffers from jerky animation and choppy frame rates.
Game play is filled with uninteresting repetitive platforming actions (like double jumping and climbing). Your PS3 controller is also not very responsive in this game which can result in frustration.
