Default Advice Needed: FPS for either Xbox 360 or PS3

Can anyone please recommend a newer (within the last year) first person shooter for either Xbox 360 or PS3? I recently picked up Homefront but was bitterly disappointed. In my opinion, the gameplay sucked and the game was just waaaaay too short. I found the story to be okay but not as great as it was hyped up to be. Are there any decent games out that you guys can recommend? I have my eyes on either Crysis 2 or Bulletstorm but don't know anyone who has tried them. Would be open to other suggestions too. I would love to find something that has decent single player gameplay but also has a great online community (for replay value). Any thoughts? Thanks!

PS: Rage looks pretty cool but it doesn't come out until September! :(

BC 2 was on my list as well. Thanks for the tip. I am heading to EB games this weekend.

Cheers!

Bulletstorm is a pretty fun title, and Crysis 2 is an awesome game.
Played both on PC, but they'll be just as good on the 360.

BC2 for sure, with BF3 comming out this year I'm excited, probably going to have to get it for PC and Xbox because my father games on PC but my friends do the console thing. Also GoW3 is gunna be awesome, beta was great.

Killzone 3. Honestly, there's nothing like it on ANY platform. The online community is pretty good too but be prepared for the usual console community immaturity of whiny 9 year olds.

Every time I think about getting Killzone 3, I think about having to appreciate the game by playing Kz1 and 2...then I remembered the crappy controls ..then I just said no

I'm with you on that one, KZ2 had brutal controls, absolutely ruined the game for me, so much so that I just never went back to continue playing it.

KZ3 controls can be remapped.

Yep, I want to play KZ3, but it's really like playing Mass Effect 3 without experiencing the previous 2. It isn't the same...
