Top 10 PS3 Local Multiplayer Games

10. Portal 2

This beloved puzzle game needs no introduction. Portal 2’s multiplayer mode has you and your friend controlling two robots, each with their own portal gun, and challenges you to use your initiative to solve the game’s physics-heavy puzzles and progress to the next level. With genius level design and a truly rewarding feeling of satisfaction when a puzzle is solved, Portal 2 is a masterpiece of challenging gaming. 

9. PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

Featuring over 20 PlayStation characters with their own unique attacks and moves, All-Stars Battle Royale allows you to pit icons like PaRappa the Rapper, Nathan Drake and Sackboy against each other with addictive combat mechanics in a wide range of dynamic environments. The game, which feels like Sony’s answer to Super Smash Bros, is just as fun as the iconic Nintendo title thanks to the bizarre fights you can experience. God of War’s Kratos vs Ratchet & Clank, anyone?

8. De Blob 2

This nitro-charged adventure puts players in control of Blob and Pinky as you investigate the terrible conspiracy behind the brainwashed Blancs. This colourful and kinetic sequel introduced super new co-op modes that allow players to liberate Prisma City together and triumph over adversity in this delightfully daft romp, resulting in certainly one of the most fun co-op experiences on the PlayStation 3.

7. Rainbow Six Vegas 2

As any Rainbow Six player will tell you, this is not a franchise for run-and-gunners or spray-and-prayers. Rainbow Six demands patience, tactics and a whole lot of teamwork – something that is proved by the incredible Rainbow Six Vegas 2. This masterpiece of tension includes a stunning campaign and an arcade ‘Terrorist Hunt’ mode that can be customised to your liking. Endlessly replayable, Vegas 2 is a blast that simply never gets old.

6. FIFA Street

Taking the FIFA format and placing it into smaller, urban courts, this fast-paced football title is
without a doubt the most exciting on the console. With a wide variety of field design and sizes, FIFA
Street keeps you on your toes as the differing courts will have you thinking on your feet as you
adjust your strategy to suit the setting. This endlessly replayable title is the best thing FIFA ever did.

5. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

After a rather underwhelming third outing, nobody expected much from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. They certainly didn’t expect a historic game-changer that would shape every other FPS that came after it. This iconic and beloved title boasts an engaging and intense campaign and featured the best online multiplayer on the PlayStation 3. This masterpiece of modern gaming still holds up today as one of the most exciting shooters available on home consoles.

4. Little Big Planet Karting

Taking the charming visuals from the beloved Little Big Planet series into a new genre, this wonderful kart racing title allows players to fire up their imagination to build their own tracks, customise karts and even design power-ups and weapons. The result is a wonderful and unique game that you can mould to your liking and will surely be the foundation of an exciting tournament at your next party night!

3. Rayman Legends

Rayman Legends is nothing short of wonderful. This charmingly beautiful old-school platformer romp is a love letter to the genre and simply oozes passion, and is certainly at its best when enjoyed with a friend in co-operative multiplayer. Deceptively simple, the game is a fun, stress-free experience and the addition of mini-games including the addictive Kung Foot makes for a fun night in. A wonderful addition to any party! 

2. Diablo III

One of the best couch co-op games ever made, Diablo III gives you the choice of a class before dropping you into the war-torn wasteland known as Sanctuary with up to three friends. Aside from the stunning main quest, Diablo III is packed with other activities including plentiful side missions and dungeon raids, providing an almost endless wealth of content for you to enjoy with your buddies. A masterpiece of multiplayer gaming.

1. Little Big Planet 3

Sackboy’s finest hour, Little Big Planet 3, transports players to the planet of Bunkum where players must explore the Imagisphere to defeat the evil Newton! With more precise and accurate gameplay than the earlier games, Little Big Planet 3 is a masterfully crafted and well-executed adventure bursting with charm and joy. With endless customisation through Create mode, this is a wonderful game that encourages imagination and creativity.
