It just seems to be a tad choppy, as in the framerate. Not terrible, and it's pretty consistent. But overall it doesn't seem super smooth. (Don't wanna seem like I'm complaining, I'm loving the game!)
Should it seem that noticeable to someone who plays mainly pc games at 60fps? Because I'm hoping it's just me being picky with it, and not any issue with my ps3. I have a good gaming pc and play most games at 60, so maybe I'm just sensitive to going to 30fps?
Don't get me wrong, love the game so far, and it's not really a problem, if it's normal.
Choppy might be too extreme, more just noticeably not super smooth if I'm moving fast (like spinning on the spot or other fast turning etc).
Thanks anyone who can answer this :) --- "I'm a warrior! Not a... variety of flower!" - Vegeta
It's hard to gauge from your description... but moments like your describing aren't that uncommon to my recollection of the game (it's been some time). However if it's very frequent, that might be an issue... but the occasional screen tearing/drop in smoothness sounds pretty normal. It is an old game, after all.

The games a launch PS3 title and probably running at 30 FPS or below. You're probably just not used to games running lower than 60 FPS, so I'd say there's nothing wrong with your PS3 or copy of the game.
Now stop bashing the PS3 you massive PC snob! Go troll somewhere else.

It's not a frequency thing, it's just the overall Framerate. It does run at 30fps, and on the PC I am a junky for high FPS, so 60 is what I'm used to playing at.
It's not horrible or major lag or aything, just overall, feels a bit choppy. I didn't think I'd notice the difference so much, but if it is okay then I'm happy with it haha.
Also, I'm playing it on a 1080p 42" TV, and maybe it is upscaling it too (if it does that), as when I check the display it says 1080p (even though it's a 720p game).
Also I felt the same with God of War 3, (friggin loved that game so much), and that also is a 30fps game (so I've read).
Thanks heaps, and I LOVE my ps3 (mine's white hehe), and yeah, just a little concerned, don't want anything to be wrong with my beloved machine :) --- "I'm a warrior! Not a... variety of flower!" - Vegeta
game mode will turn off all the extra effect options your TV has, and as such will normally increase reduce any input lag. So I'm not sure if that will fix whatever problem you're having at the moment, but it is a good idea anyway.
The only problem I've had with game mode was on my old TV, and it locked all of the TV's colour/brightness settings and as a result the picture looked pretty bad.
Still, try hunting around for that motion option I mentioned. Pretty sure game mode turns that off though. --- Meet the new love of my life-- http://itotd.com/view/80/
