Which game is closest to Pain for ps3 (flying ragdoll style game)?

One of the more fun games I've played on ps3 was the downloadable "Pain," which involved a 3d world where you launch your character from a slingshot and attempt to create the most havok in the world around you.

I know there are several similarly themed games on the iPhone, but they all seem to be 2d and have fairly awful graphics.

Is there anything out there that really rivals Pain for 3d characteristics/polish?

seeing how this is an iphone, and that is a ps3... i doubt anything will rival the ps3's graphics... but like you mentioned, there are 2d games like mentioned that are pretty fun.

I personally think that the best ragdoll pain game is iDrop Dead:



Honestly, it is a ton of fun and the graphics may look bad in the screenshots but they are great in-game.

There is also a lite version:

Probably the closest app that I've found is Smith Shooter. It doesn't have to bad of graphics but can run slow at times. Also it's more about getting distance then trying to blow up everything around you. If you want a time waster then look no further, but if your looking for content and a rival to Pain, then you'll be dissapointed.

Max Injury is pretty good.



Simple, smooth 3D graphics. Nice gameplay - drag him about to cause maximum injury.

My favourite is ouch because of the sheer amount of customization in it. You can make your own ragdolls and levels and have tonnes of stuff to do so. I love it.

Max Injury isn't bad, but it's basically an advanced version of Stair Dismount, and is rather slow besides, even on a 3GS. I'd have to second iDrop Dead. Great game.

Slow???
It runs extremely fast/smoothly on my original iPhone.
Must be a 3GS compatibility issue or something.

While I wouldn't quite agree with the term advanced, the two games certainly do share a remarkable amount of elements

Pain, on the other hand, is a graphically advanced version of Dismount... (although the game character spends quite a lot of time airborne and not so much actually colliding).

All in all, there are a number of ragdoll games on the iPhone already, but we've got a good feeling that Stair Dismount will bring its own unique flavor when it's released. It'll be fun to compete head-to-head with the other games.
