should I get Crysis and/or warhead?
 
Sorry for the slightly indulgent thread...


So I've never bought played crysis or warhead except for the original demo. Back then I had an 8800GTX and when I played the demo I realised that it wasn't really that great with no AA at 15-25fps. So I decided not to buy it.

Step forward 2 years or so and I now have a GTX295. I think I'm ready to give crysis a go. but should I get warhead or the original?

will I be able to get a constant 30+ fps in Crysis with 4xAA?

I totally missed the boat with crysis tweaking, can anyone recommend a config/mod/settings that give a significant boost in FPS without too much degredation of image quality.

I just finnished Stalker CS on some pretty high settings and I'm a bit sick of the slow downs and jerkiness in busy areas.

will I be able to do crysis without these bothers?

TIA.

Get both :D

Crysis is longer and more involving.

Warhead is shorter but has better graphics, better performance and a few more options in terms of game-play, but it makes a lot less sense if you didn't play Crysis :)

Together though, the games rock.

I would say get Crysis, and if you finish it and like it, get Warhead.

Holy crap! That's a damn good price and free shipping too. I may have to break down and get it. Does Crysis full version run better than the demo after it's been patched? In the demo benchmark I'm getting about 53fps average at 1920x1080, very high settings, no AA and DX9. Would love to turn on DX 10 and get that same result.

I hope you enjoy the game. Singleplayer gets boring very quickly after 5-6 runs then you might ask is that it? I say certainly not. There's the awesome multiplayer also. Multiplayer is the best since Q3 and very fun. Took me a lot of practice and time to be good at it. Well if you're just starting out, there's some steep learning curves to be tackled but hey I still remember when I was a complete n00b I found it very much fun nonetheless.

Both, but play Crysis 1st.
