    Behind you! I know you looked!
    After the few stellar reviews Crysis Warhead has received so far, and the promise of better gameplay, faster action, and even better graphics, I've decided I'll be getting this soon.
    And at £15, I'll have to say it's a no-brainer. Even cheaper for those in the US too.

    Apparently it ships with all-new multiplayer called Crysis Wars, which focuses on deathmatches. According to the reviews, this exceeds Crysis' multiplayer in many ways.

    Not to mention probably the biggest draw for many; the fact that not only have the graphics got slightly better, they'll run on max everything without killing your system this time round. No recommended specs have been released, but expect to run max everything on a system like this:
    nVidia GeForce 8800 GTS or equivalent in performance
    Single Core processors: 3.2 GHz
    Dual Core processors: 2.0 GHz (x2)
    1.5GB RAM: XP, 2GB RAM: Vista

    How does that work out?

    Better graphics than the first one (which required a beefy computer) but this one doesn't require much of a beefy computer. That doesn't make sense. Better graphics requires more beefy computer.

    Yeh sorry about over using 'beefy' [​IMG]

    I don't know exactly how that works, but Half-Life 2 had (and still has) amazing graphics for the time, and it didn't require a top of the line computer to run it.

    I guess it's just the way the programmers work on the game.

    Yeah, Amazon UK says the 19th, and they can't be wrong seeing as they're actually selling it!
    Amazon US says the 16th. Meh, that means they did the switcheroo and only delayed for us Europeans! How's that work?

    I just uninstalled Crysis! Now I gotta reinstall Cysis for this expansion even though I found it to be dead boring... Because I want to see what they do to the aliens.

    Warhead does not require original Crysis

    And how the hell is this not leaked yet [​IMG]

    Is there a site like GBAtemp, except for PC scene ?

    Oh, weird. It's just NDS games retail at £30 here, but Warhead retails for £15, which is half the price. Mega cheap for us British.
