Help with buying PS3 game for my husband, whats good?

Hi everyone,
I want to get my husband a new ps3 game for xmas but i dont know what to get. He has got all the call of duty games and operation flashpoint and loves them and this is the sort of games im looking for.

The chap i spoke to in gamestation said there isnt anything like this coming out before xmas so i was thinking of getting an older game. We have played the first assasins creed and uncharted drakes fortune and wasnt massively keen, so im not interested in the new versions of these that have just come out.

He does play a game he brought through the playstation network which i think is called battlefield, he really likes this and likes getting in the planes so was thinking of something like warhawk? is that any good? or is there one just called hawk? any help would be much appreciated and any recomendations would be great.
thanks

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

It's on my Xmas list too. Supposed to be the best game out on PS3. Warhawk is quite old now and Hawx was crap imo. Uncharted 2 is supposed to be good online too.

i definately recommend uncharted 2
the best game i have ever played to be honest
good game overall
ign rated it 9.8

DEFO UNCHARTED 2: AMONG THIEFS

Possibly, Metal Gear Solid 4 although, if only one UNCHARTED 2!

basically theres people in soldier gear online lol and its WAY BETTER THAN THE FIRST 1
i didnt fancy the first 1 that much but this is brill
more exciting
more stuuff to do
basically a package of fun

MGS 4
Uncharted 2
Demon's Soul
Socom Confrontation can be bought for around £14.99 with the sony headset and I love the game (most of the time)

Warhawk is fun

Modern Warfare 2
Uncharted 2
Assassins Creed 2
Killzone 2

Thanks for everyones help, ive just been watching some trailers on you tube, Im likeing the look of metal gear solid 4, killzone 2 and socom confrontation. Anyone seen any deals for these recently? Which one of these games has best online play? i might consider uncharted 2 if it falls into any of the half price deals before xmas, but im still not convinced he will like it.

Cool,its still there at £14.99, no mention of headset though, do u know if all the copies came complete with headset or could this just be the game on its own?

It was instore with headset but can be bought without a headset (not recommended though as everyone talks in socom matches) .

UNCHARTED 2 IS THE BEST GAME EVER! I brought it thinking I wouldn't like it and i'm addicted... Glad i've found something too as COD MWF2 is sooo boring, completed in 5 hours and online is a joke for someone like me.... Yes i'm a newbie and crap, I can't compete against these Pro's.
Well unfair game :whistling:

I think it's something to do with selling over a million copys! then they take the price down and call it platinum :thumbsup:

typical that this game is generaly around £30 and all the others i was looking at are so much cheaper. I will have to keep my eye open for deals on this one. Ithink i will get killzone 2 as well and possibly socom confrontation if i can find it for under £20 with headset. Oh and possibly Metal gear solid 4.

Looks like my hubby will be happy xmas day now cos he only expecting 1 game for ps3 and he has potentialy got 4 now. Thanks everyone :-D
