8. Resistance 2, Sony - PS3

What we said: If you own a PS3 then there's no doubt that you should pick up Resistance 2. It's a solid FPS, with moments of brilliance and some top notch multiplayer modes. It isn't the system seller it could have been though. The campaign is the biggest offender, switching between mediocre and spectacular far too regularly, as does the presentation. The storyline and characters once again fall flat, with Insomniac failing to build anything to really care about into a sci-fi premise that has an awful lot of potential. There's plenty here to work with; we just hope Insomniac finally puts all the pieces together for the inevitable third game.

7. MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, Sony - PS3

What we said: PlayStation has had some hugely impressive racing franchises over the years and Pacific Rift shows that MotorStorm is on its way to join the greats. We're still not completely sold on what we believe is an overly harsh handling model that frequently restricts the amount of fun the average gamer can have, but it's not an insurmountable problem. Once you're in the groove you'll find some incredible tracks to scream around at high speed and the online play should provide plenty of longevity. Some might see Pacific Rift as a safe follow-up, but with a brand new location, more tracks and more features, it's more or less exactly what fans wanted.

"no way man, where's mirrors edge, where's resistance 2?"
First one not exclusive, latter is on page 2. Read the articale before you post? :P (also, game being too long? you try to finish them in one sitting or something? nothing wrong with having a smackload of content(unless the game is boring, and then the game has bigger issues than it's lenght))

Cute trick on the title, I came here thinking "10 good ps3 exclusives, this i gotta see" and half of them were psp titles. Still, the title did say "playstation" without the three.
Then again, x360 list had lips and 2 multiplatforms, so apparently most of the great games are multiplatforms, which ofc is great for gamers :)

I agree with all the picks, but it's a shame you didn't mention Persona 4.

I would've put Eden instead of Monsters. Monsters is good, but I just prefer Eden so much more. But to each his own, and we all know reviews/top 10 lists/game of the year hullabaloo is all about opinion anyway.

Because they have yet to play VC, and Persona 4 as well, that's why they're not on the list.

Where are Valkyria Chronicles, Naruto UNS or GT 5 Prologue?
They are all better than PJ Monsters or Ratchet QoB.
Especially Valkyria Chronicles, it's one of the most underrated games this year.
