Which games arrived on PS3 a little worse for wear.
The PS3 got off to a pretty bad start, but these days developers are pumping out better games, whether they're exclusive or multi-platform. In the hope that we're nearing the end sloppy PS3 ports of Xbox 360 games we've put together our Top 10: Worst PS3 Ports. Which games hit the PlayStation 3 in far worse shape than they were in on the Xbox 360? Which ports really shouldn't have made it out of the QA department? Read on to find out.
F.E.A.R. was ported from the PC to the Xbox 360 fairly successfully, but something went very wrong with the PS3 game. Released after the Xbox 360 game, F.E.A.R. on PS3 suffered from a poorer frame rate and appeared to have had Vaseline smeared over the screen. For whatever reason this relatively old PC game didn't run at all well on Sony's latest console, which had a negative impact on the game's action packed gameplay.

The PS3 game chugs frequently and seems to be missing much of the subtle lighting that impressed so much last year. What's more, numerous sound effect glitches crop up throughout and cutscenes fail to run smoothly. It all felt rather sloppy and lessened the experience substantially.
