Crysis Warhead

I never got into Crysis last year after the demo left me unimpressed, but between early indications that Warhead significantly improves upon Crysis in almost every respect and the low price point (USD $30 on Steam) I admit to being rather tempted.

Is anyone else here picking this one up, or thinking about it?

Re: Crysis Warhead

Heh, After loading the demo up on my last system and not being too impressed, I forgot to try Crysis on this machine that I just built. Shows how interested I was in it.

There a demo for it?

Re: Crysis Warhead

I quite enjoyed Crysis; I wasn't really thinking about Warhead but the reviews are looking really good so I'll probably pick it up. Though maybe not right away, Spore and Warhammer are taking up most of my very limited free time

Re: Crysis Warhead

No demo that I'm aware of, I guess they figure the original Crysis demo suffices there. Warhead is basically a standalone expansion pack.

I'm over Spore. Warhammer is tempting, especially since Mythic - unlike the developer of a certain other high-profile MMO - is offering Oceanic servers. I'll wait to see how it performs post-launch, though. Age of Conan had a lot going for it too, and look what happened there.

Re: Crysis Warhead

I've been playing the Warhammer beta on and off for the past month and I'm enjoying it quite a bit... the RvR stuff is fun enough that I've actually got into PVP for the first time in the past week. And the Public Quests are so much more enjoyable for me then instances in WoW ever were.

That said, I tend to get tired of MMOs after a month or two anyway.

Re: Crysis Warhead

Crysis had one of the worst shooting engines ever, it could decide if it wanted to be a realisic ballistics game like STALKER or general FPS game like COD.

The system requirements were stupid and hurt sales bad but PC's have caught up more in the past year but still no way am getting this even when I get my new PC simply because of EA's habit of still making lackluster shooting engines.

Re: Crysis Warhead

Crysis was developed by Crytek, not EA.

Re: Crysis Warhead

Isn't it just evolved from from the engine from Farcry?

I know but FarCry was decent and it just seems anything associated with EA sucks. Battlefield from Dice/EA and Crysis. Did EA buy the Crytek studios or just partner up ?

Re: Crysis Warhead

Crytek is still indie as far as I know. In fact, Warhead is actually developed by a satellite studio they opened up recently.

They're just part of the EA partners program.

It's just a partnership. EA had nothing to do with development.

Re: Crysis Warhead

For better or worse, EA is the good company now. That's how sad it is now.

Rage is being published by EA too, so let's hope you're wrong. Having id turn out a game with sub-par gunplay would truly be the end of civilisation as we know it.
