The Ultimate PS3 Games Showdown has officially kicked off! We've set out to decide the Best PS3 Game of All Time, but we need your help. Through a series of match-ups, we'll narrow the field until only the best of the best remain. All you need to do is click the link below and cast YOUR vote in our official poll!

UNCHARTED 2: AMONG THIEVES VS. ASSASSIN'S CREED II

The Contenders:

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

If Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was a great game, then Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was nothing short of spectacular. Nathan Drake's second adventure - equal parts shooting, climbing, and puzzle-solving - topped the first in every way. Bigger action. Thrilling setpieces. A tighter story. Refined controls and shooting took things to the next level and cemented our wise-cracking hero as one of gaming's biggest stars. Who doesn't remember leaping between speeding trucks on an icy mountain road, or scaling the rooftops of Nepal while squaring off against an attack helicopter? These moments, and many, many more, are memorable evidence of Uncharted 2's excellence.

Assassin's Creed II

Setting skilled assassin Ezio Auditore loose on the streets of Italy turned out to be a great move for the Assassin's Creed franchise. His inexperience and triumphs made for a character arc that was LEAGUES better than whiny Altair's. The richly-detailed playground of Assassin's Creed II allowed players to make use of interesting new gadgets and gizmos. Meanwhile, control refinements and better pacing made the game that much more compelling. Clearly, people loved it - Ezio has received two more spin-off titles to complete his character arc, and Assassin's Creed II is remembered as perhaps the best game in a series loved by millions.

Which of these two games deserves to move forward in our competition? Cast your votes in the official polling thread, and be sure to vote in all our match-ups to decide the Best PS3 Game Ever!
