1. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves - PlayStation 3
"A veritable master class of all-round game development. From a sensational single-player experience that never takes any short-cuts and maintains its story's mythological credibility right to the end to the co-operative online play to the robust, balanced, and just plain fun multiplayer modes, this is a package of content that more than earns its $60 price tag... [It's] this season's biggest PS3 victory." - PlayStation: The Official Magazine (US)

Metacritic Score: 96

2. The Last of Us - PlayStation 3
"Naughty Dog has proven itself again as one of the most accomplished development teams in the world. With The Last of Us they have given us a consistent and interesting world that is supported by practically all of its game mechanics. From the rich complex combat system to the sublime sound design, this game immerses the player in one of the most visceral plots in this generation." - LevelUp

3. LittleBigPlanet - PlayStation 3
"There simply isn't anything else like LBP on any system, anywhere. It's a beautifully elegant and powerful creative tool that puts unlimited potential in the palm of your hand." - PlayStation Official Magazine UK

Metacritic Score: 95
GameRankings Score: 94.45%

People who added this item 571  Average listal rating (270 ratings) 8.6  IMDB Rating
4. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots - PlayStation 3
"The Playstation 3 finally gets its "savior", Kojima gets his masterpiece, and gamers get one of the best games of all time. - GamePro

Metacritic Score: 94
GameRankings Score: 92.82%

People who added this item 436  Average listal rating (195 ratings) 8.7  IMDB Rating
5. God of War III - PlayStation 3
"God of War 3 is the most balanced [of the franchise]. It's not quite as focused as GOW1, nor is it as lengthy and moment-packed as GOW2, but it's the most consistent and varied of the three, and when it's at its best the first two can't touch it." - IUP

Metacritic Score: 93
GameRankings Score: 92.02%

People who added this item 151  Average listal rating (62 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating
6. Little Big Planet 2 - PlayStation 3
"Media Molecule has practically perfected user-generated content for consoles. An improved story mode, increase in creation tools, and focus on community features make this a must-have for PlayStation 3 owners." - GamerNode

Metacritic Score: 92
GameRankings Score: 92.34%

People who added this item 299  Average listal rating (138 ratings) 8.6  IMDB Rating
7. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception - PlayStation 3
"For the second time in succession, Naughty Dog has created a game that can claim to not only be the best on PS3, but also one of the best in gaming history...A visual, technical and narrative tour de force that takes the sky-high expectations of an entire community and blows them out the back of a jumbo jet, replacing them with more show-stopping moments than you could hope to find in a dozen other games combined." - PlayStation Official Magazine UK

Metacritic Score: 92
GameRankings Score: 92.19%

People who added this item 255  Average listal rating (101 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
8. Killzone 2 - PlayStation 3
"Killzone 2 is an exceptional first-person shooter, not because it does anything particularly new, but because it does everything extraordinarily well. There's certainly no doubting its graphical superiority, but though its moody visuals invite incessant superlatives, it's the tight, electric action that will make this an off- and online haven." - GameSpot

Metacritic Score: 91
GameRankings Score: 90.40%

People who added this item 202  Average listal rating (69 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating
9. Demon's Souls - PlayStation 3
"Its appeal may be niche, but for those who appreciate a challenging and ultimately very rewarding game in a genre that's poorly represented not only on the PS3 but in this entire console generation, Demon's Souls is an absolute must have." - AceGamez

Metacritic Score: 89
GameRankings Score: 89.97%

People who added this item 189  Average listal rating (78 ratings) 8.3  IMDB Rating
10. Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction - PlayStation 3
"This is visually one of the best looking games on the market. And with an engine that's gunning it at 60 frames per second, and capable of 1080i upscaled, R&C Future is also running on one of the best engines, as well. The gameplay is precisely what we've all come to love, except louder, more heated, more energetic, more fun, and with all new gameplay mechanics added to the mix." - PSX Extreme

Metacritic Score: 89
GameRankings Score: 88.82%

People who added this item 528  Average listal rating (259 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating
11. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - PlayStation 3
"Production value exudes from every pore on Nathan's face; great graphics, audio, and gameplay are used with lethal detail to tell an over-the-top adventure story that draws inspiration from big budget adventure flicks. And it actually manages to pull off everything with enthusiasm, leaving you wanting more." - Gaming Age

Metacritic Score: 88
GameRankings Score: 89.62%

People who added this item 449  Average listal rating (218 ratings) 8.6  IMDB Rating
12. Heavy Rain - PlayStation 3
"I have never played anything so momentous or revolutionary as Heavy Rain. In the coming years I expect the game's influence to be felt throughout the industry in terms of gameplay, storytelling and interactivity. This is a game that deserves all the plaudits it can get. So please go out and buy Heavy Rain and reward those that have made such a groundbreaking videogame event." - Boomtown

Metacritic Score: 87
GameRankings Score: 89.33%

People who added this item 93  Average listal rating (57 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating
13. Flower - PlayStation Network
"Flower is a shock to the gamer's system because it reminds us that games aren't about fanboy allegiances, media hype, and quarterly earnings. Good games—like good art—can simply be food for the soul. Flower is the kind of soulful nourishment we need more of." - GameCritics

Metacritic Score: 87
GameRankings Score: 87.29%


*Only available on PSN store

People who added this item 185  Average listal rating (68 ratings) 8.3  IMDB Rating
14. Valkyria Chronicles - PlayStation 3
"Valkyria Chronicles is a truly magnificent outing for Sega. It dares to be different, it scoffs at genre conventions and finds its own path, and in doing so succeeds brilliantly as both a deep strategy experience and a wonderfully story-driven RPG." - IGN AU

Metacritic Score: 87
GameRankings Score: 87.13%

People who added this item 172  Average listal rating (70 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
15. Resistance 2 - PlayStation 3
"Resistance 2 is definitely an enjoyable first person shooter experience on the PS3 with detailed graphics, sturdy gameplay and a great storyline that is at times like the survival horror genre. Definitely a must have for fans of the original title or for those wanting a very immersing first person shooter experience." - ImpulseGamer

Metacritic Score: 87
GameRankings Score: 86.94%

People who added this item 123  Average listal rating (49 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
16. Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time - PlayStation 3
"I'm a casual fan of the series and I still found myself excited to get home and play the game each night the past week. It may be a lot of more of the same, but more of the same has never been so darn addicting." - 1UP

Metacritic Score: 87
GameRankings Score: 86.88%

People who added this item 306  Average listal rating (148 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
17. Resistance: Fall of Man - PlayStation 3
"Resistance doesn't attempt anything wildly different than other first-person shooters out there, but by offering a strong selection of interesting weapons, plenty of ruthless foes to shoot them at, good level design, and an excellent presentation, it accomplishes what most such games fail to do. A fully featured multiplayer mode for up to 40 players rounds out an exciting campaign." - GameSpot

Metacritic Score: 86
GameRankings Score: 86.76%

People who added this item 356  Average listal rating (171 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
18. Infamous - PlayStation 3
"It's the quality of the central action in InFamous that I keep coming back to. Everything else would be fancy window dressing if Sucker Punch hadn't nailed the basic gameplay elements, the simple moving and shooting, as precisely as it did. InFamous feels like a game designed from the very ground up to be fun to play, so I guess it's no surprise that as soon as the credits finished rolling on my good version of Cole, I started up an evil one to play it all over again." - Giant Bomb

Metacritic Score: 85
GameRankings Score: 87.87%

People who added this item 46  Average listal rating (9 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating
19. God of War Origins Collection - Playstation ... - PlayStation 3
"Independently, Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta were standout efforts that helped make a name for Ready At Dawn. When you put them together in the Origins Collection, you get two amazing and upgraded adventures in one $40 package that no fan of action games should miss." - Game Informer

Metacritic Score: 84
Game Rankings Score: 86.62%

People who added this item 129  Average listal rating (51 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating
20. Killzone 3 - PlayStation 3
"As good as Killzone 2 was, Killzone 3 tops it in every respect. The excellent PlayStation Move controls and stereoscopic 3D support certainly don't hurt either. So if you're looking for an intense and polished sci-fi first person shooter for the PlayStation 3, then Killzone 3 is obviously your game." - Gaming Age

Metacritic Score: 84
GameRankings Score: 86.32%

People who added this item 166  Average listal rating (53 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating
21. Gran Turismo 5 - PlayStation 3
"Kaz Yamauchi's passion for the racing sphere shines through every aspect of the game. The incredibly-detailed cars, the slick presentation, the spot-on physics. Polyphony Digital brought its A-game. Nothing else on the market can come close to the realism and immersion you feel throughout. Gran Turismo 5 is virtual racing at its very best." - PlayStation Lifestyle

Metacritic Score: 84
GameRankings Score: 84.39%

People who added this item 65  Average listal rating (30 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
22. Warhawk - PlayStation 3
"With the amount of chaos the game throws at you, the options, and the diversity in gameplay, this one's a no-brainer. Warhawk is simply the s**t - and I highly suggest you ignore any naysayer who says otherwise." - PSX Extreme

Metacritic Score: 84
GameRankings Score: 84.21%

People who added this item 75  Average listal rating (25 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
23. Resistance 3 - PlayStation 3
"It hits you right between the eyes from the start and never lets up. The control is tight, the variety (fueled by different enemies, upgradeable weapons, and gigantic bosses) is absolutely essential, the atmosphere has a large impact, the story and characters are compelling, and the pacing and technical style is second-to-none." - PSX Extreme

Metacritic Score: 83
GameRankings Score: 85.18%

People who added this item 161  Average listal rating (65 ratings) 8.3  IMDB Rating
24. Infamous 2 - PlayStation 3
"inFAMOUS 2 is as solid as the original game if not more-so. Sucker Punch has nailed the superhero formula and created what could be the perfect superhero simulation for any platform. This game is the perfect way to scratch that desire in your imagination to be more than human..." - Gaming Nexus

Metacritic Score: 83
GameRankings Score: 83.13%

People who added this item 162  Average listal rating (73 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
25. MotorStorm - PlayStation 3
"MotorStorm is definitely the showcase title for the PS3 that we all expected it to be, with a great selection of vehicles that actually lend themselves to varied racing strategies and unique routes through wonderfully intricate and natural track designs." - Game Chronicles

Metacritic Score: 82
GameRankings Score: 82.87%

People who added this item 27  Average listal rating (13 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
26. SingStar - PlayStation 3
"SingStar isn't a revolutionary game -- you're still just performing karaoke on your PlayStation. But uploading silly videos and watching other people's creations really adds a new dimension; it gives you what every karaoke star wants the most: an audience." - 1UP

Metacritic Score: 82
GameRankings Score: 82.79%

People who added this item 62  Average listal rating (29 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating
27. Motorstorm: Pacific Rift - PlayStation 3
"The game is entertaining and a visual treat. The development team did a good job building on the original title, tweaking what needed to be tweaked and leaving the core mechanics intact. If you are looking for a solid, off-road racer, this is a good bet." - GameZone

Metacritic Score: 82
GameRankings Score: 82.27%

People who added this item 17  Average listal rating (9 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating
28. Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds - PlayStation 3
"Finely honed, beautifully crafted and offering a mountainous challenge, World Tour reels you in with stat boosts and loyalty rewards and never lets you go. Satisfaction is definitely guaranteed. - Play UK

Metacritic Score: 81
GameRankings Score: 82.00%

People who added this item 33  Average listal rating (9 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
29. Disgaea 4 - PlayStation 3
"Exactly what it should be: an upgrade of a recognizable game that plenty of fans have adored. It's very pretty, the audio is borderline amazing, the captivating, addicting gameplay is back in full force (with even a little extra force), and player choice and customization immediately gives us a sense of purpose." - PSX Extreme

Metacritic Score: 80
GameRankings Score: 82.81%

People who added this item 17  Average listal rating (5 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating
30. Buzz! Quiz World - PlayStation 3
"Hands-down the best party game experience of the year, Buzz! Quiz World is a massive improvement over the last game, showing that developer Relentless Software not only listened to their fan base but endeavored to actually make the definitive Buzz." - Total PlayStation

Metacritic Score: 80
GameRankings Score: 82.23%

People who added this item 14  Average listal rating (8 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating
31. Buzz! Quiz TV - PlayStation 3
"Even though Buzz! Quiz TV has some minor flaws; the game remains fun, addictive and definitely sets the table for a much improved sequel that will put the competition behind even more. If you were looking for a nice way to have fun with your family and friends on your Playstation 3, this is a buy without even hesitating." - GameFocus

Metacritic Score: 80
GameRankings Score: 81.28%

People who added this item 98  Average listal rating (42 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating
32. Gran Turismo 5: Prologue - PlayStation 3
"Gran Turismo fans that can’t simply wait another year or more just for the full GT5 will find a lot to like here for the reduced price while casual GT fans that have been overwhelmed by the immense depth of previous Gran Turismos can hop in and get the hang of the game without being a huge car nut quite well." - Gamer 2.0

Metacritic Score: 80
GameRankings Score: 79.88%

People who added this item 208  Average listal rating (93 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
33. Heavenly Sword - PlayStation 3
"Heavenly Sword provides exactly what the PlayStation3 is in dire need of. An extremely stylish and immediate action romp that will entertain the masses and earn points for its faultless presentation and production. Nevertheless, it isn't quite the game we were hoping for and leaves a number of areas for improvement when Nariko struts her stuff on the PlayStation 3 once again." - Total Video Games

Metacritic Score: 79
GameRankings Score: 80.51%

People who added this item 56  Average listal rating (20 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
34. God of War: Ascension - PlayStation 3
"While not quite the high-point of the God Of War series, Ascension delivers an action-packed, gloriously-produced, freak-bashing extravaganza with an addictive multiplayer component to boot." - Gaming Age

Metacritic Score: 80
GameRankings Score: 79.45%

People who added this item 99  Average listal rating (30 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
35. Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice - PlayStation 3
"Disgaea 3 is easily the best in the Disgaea series, and if you care enough about gameplay, writing, and characters to overlook old-school graphics you're in for quite a treat." - GamerNode

Metacritic Score: 78
GameRankings Score: 81.11%

People who added this item 49  Average listal rating (18 ratings) 8.5  IMDB Rating
36. Yakuza 4 - PlayStation 3
"Yakuza 4 is everything you would expect from the series. The shift to a four-main-character storyline is the most welcome change it offers, and one that adds an entirely new flavor to a city already familiar to fans. Its brazen Japanese lifestyle mixed with ridiculous street brawling and lives of crime suck you in and make you want to stay. Despite it's flaws and its last-game (and in some cases, last-gen) presentation, Yakuza 4 is worth the odd missions one would have to complete in order to secure a loan to buy it." - Game Over Online

Metacritic Score: 79
GameRankings Score: 80.11%

People who added this item 31  Average listal rating (10 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
37. Twisted Metal - PlayStation 3
"The perfect party game. There is enough odd shit going on to keep the people waiting to play entertained and vehicle combat has never felt so good. The main reason Twisted Metal pulled this off is because it didn't try to reinvent itself for the next-gen consoles. The game knows what it did well in the past and brings all of that into the modern gaming world." - UGO

Metacritic: 79
GameRankings: 79.82%

People who added this item 64  Average listal rating (23 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
38. Yakuza 3 - PlayStation 3
"As an action game it holds up very well, as an RPG it will keep the average quest junkie enthralled, and as a fishing/karoke/arcade sim, it also manages to tick each of those apparently mutually exclusive boxes with a defiant stroke. As a whole, and, more importantly, as a game, it works." - TheSixthAxis

Metacritic Score: 79
GameRankings Score: 79.39%

People who added this item 28  Average listal rating (11 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating
39. Ridge Racer 7 - PlayStation 3
"Would-be drivers will feel like members of a global race community, complete with constantly updating race statistics and personal achievements. A nice selection of tracks, tunes and rides round out this very solid package." - IGN

Metacritic Score: 78
GameRankings Score: 78.81%

People who added this item 61  Average listal rating (19 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating
40. Siren: Blood Curse - PlayStation 3
"Despite the hoops you need to jump through prior to playing, Blood Curse more than makes up for it with some of the most intense and perfectly paced survival horror I've had the pleasure of being terrified by." - 1UP

Metacritic Score: 78
Game Rankings Score: 77.41%


*Only available on PSN store in U.S.

People who added this item 14  Average listal rating (6 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating
41. Starhawk - PlayStation 3
"Starhawk simply is a blast to play. The campaign is negligible, and serves as training for the multiplayer action, so it needs to be said that this is an experience you get for online play – period. The second disclaimer is that this is not a casual game. You will need to spend some time and commit to learning how to build and work within a team, as well as utilize the vehicles to your team's advantage. All that said, if you're all about a strategic yet fast-paced online shooter with innovative building mechanics, this game is a must-have." - Game Over Online

Metacritic Score: 77
GameRankings Score: 79.04%

People who added this item 6  Average listal rating (2 ratings) 5.5  IMDB Rating
42. MotorStorm: Apocalypse - PlayStation 3
"If you can't tell from this glowing review, let me come out and say it plainly: I LOVE MotorStorm Apocalypse. The game is an absolute blast and a top-class production. Evolution has created the total package, from addicting and fun gameplay to incredible track design... it's all here. The MotorStorm series finally has it's "great" game..." - Gaming Nexus

Metacritic Score: 77
GameRankings Score: 78.40%

People who added this item 96  Average listal rating (36 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating
43. Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty - PlayStation 3
"For those who loved the last game, it's a brilliant treat; a chance for one last blast while we wait for a full-blown sequel. For newcomers it's an inexpensive way to discover what they've been missing out on." - PlayStation Official Magazine UK

Metacritic Score: 76

44. MAG - PlayStation 3
"From its solid controls, crisp, user-friendly menus and huge array of customization options to its emphasis towards player progression and large scale teamwork, MAG might just become the serious contender to the genre heavyweights that Zipper and SCEA hoped it would be." - AceGamez

Metacritic Score: 75
GameRankings Score: 77.20%

People who added this item 63  Average listal rating (20 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
45. Katamari Forever - PlayStation 3
"Katamari fans who have not played every game in the series will most likely get more out of Katamari Forever due to the recycled content, but it's solid entry in a quirky franchise regardless of your past Prince experience." - Kombo

Metacritic Score: 74
GameRankings Score: 77.74%

People who added this item 103  Average listal rating (35 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating
46. Folklore - PlayStation 3
"A great deal of the magnificence in Folklore comes from the little details: the serenity within a field of bristling flowers and cascading petals, or the charm of a stairway that rings with laughter when your character's foot falls upon it - these are just a few of the many moments that may bring an awed smile to your face." - IGN

Metacritic Score: 75
GameRankings Score: 76.26%

People who added this item 23  Average listal rating (9 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating

"A superb racing game. Enthusiasts of the motorsport will eat this up and ask for more. Everything about this game is a quality product, from the visuals to the gameplay." - PSX Extreme

48. Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 - PlayStation 3
"CyberConnect2 has done a terrific job with the Naruto franchise. With Ultimate Ninja Storm being a PlayStation 3 exclusive, it’s evident that the developers took advantage of the hardware they were given. Fans of the series should be ecstatic, while newcomers may be surprised with how much they enjoy the game." - PlayStation Universe

Metacritic Score: 75
GameRankings Score: 75.72%

People who added this item 15  Average listal rating (4 ratings) 5  IMDB Rating
49. Eye of Judgment - PlayStation 3
"A decent collectible card game that can be picked up by players of all stripes in a relatively short amount of time. The game’s mechanics as they relate to the eye itself can be clunky at times but the overall experience is a lot of fun online, against the game’s AI and especially against friends who want to have a traditional sit down battle." - GameShark

Metacritic Score: 75
GameRankings Score: 75.21%

People who added this item 19  Average listal rating (7 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
50. LittleBigPlanet Karting - PlayStation 3
"United Front Games has done a phenomenal job of re-creating the look and feel of the Craftworld while applying its kart racing expertise with imaginative tracks and responsive controls. And the Create mode is nothing short of stunning, even if I don't have the patience for it. Depending on how the community of players respond, it might be the only kart racing game you'll ever need. - GamesBeat

Metacritic Score: 73
GameRankings Score: 73.62%


 

A list of top-ranking PS3 exclusives that have scored 70 or above from both Metacritic.com and GameRankings.com respectively.

It could be argued whether or not PS3-exclusive rereleases of last-gen titles - such as the God of War HD Collection, for example - warrant listing due to their availability on a separate platform, but because these particlar versions are exclusive to the PS3 this current generation I feel that their inclusion is warranted.

Thanks for this list! I have been waiting for something like this (from a Listal.com user) as a reference for whenever I purchase a PS3.
