The excellent standalone expansion to the original Crysis is well worth its bargain price tag for anyone who is a fan of PC shooters.
The Game Collection's bargain price beats 101 CD's second place price of £14.77 by nearly £5 and is also part of their 3 for £20 deal!
While it expands upon the original Crysis, you do not require the first title installed to play.
Like Crysis, Warhead takes place in a futuristic setting in which an ancient alien vessel has been discovered deep underground, below an island near the Phillipines. In the main campaign, players take on the role of Delta Force operator Sgt. Michael Sykes, better known as "Psycho". Timewise, the action runs parallel to the original Crysis narrative, with events occurring on the other side of the island.
Crysis: Warhead has received lavish praise from virtually every corner. Crytek have built upon the original title and answered every criticism with great improvements. Combat is intense, tight and engaging, often thrilling. While you will definitely need your brain switched firmly to the "On" position, the game is beefier and more action packed than its predecessor. The enemy AI has been much improved, though is still far from perfect. Though no longer state of the art, the graphics are still very pleasing and make for enjoyable, smooth play.
There's plenty of replay value with sandbox gameplay and an engaging new Team Instant Action Mode with improved multiplayer maps and gameplay.
