I've just finished it...IMO, they should rename it to Crysis "Asshead", ie, you're a asshead for buying it.......guess it'll make for a useful benchmark

It wasn't THAT bad. Least Psycho had a bit of personality. Not like that blank yank Nomad.

I've only played the Crysis demo, but Warhead was supposed to be the hi-octane version of Crysis, so I can see myself falling asleep thru Crysis when I get round to buying it.
My problem with this game is that I didn't like the weapons nor the enemies/aliens.....so graphics aside, it was only okay, been there and done that many times before.

LOL, since you claim you are "Best Far Cry Player", how are the weapons and enemies in Warhead so different from FC to make you not like it?

I hate the squid "things", and found that the weapons lacked the punch and impact that Far Cry's did.
Also, I didn't enjoy the vehicle action that much either....I found the vehicles to be cumbersome and difficult to shoot with.

I would also rather that it was twice as long and cost the same as a traditional game.

I'm going to buy Crysis so that I can max it on my next system and run it thru a 40in 1080p LCD.

Far Cry "wowed" me as did the Fear demo back in 2005, but none of these latest games have advanced enough for me to get over-excited.

RB - you and Crysis don't seem to have a good relationship. Don't like the guns and the enemies... :/
Staaayyyy awwwwwaaaaayyyyyyy.


ATM I'm on the bridge of the train mission - after the cut scenes. I have to say - some of the fighting is like Serious Crysis!!! (y'know - Serious Sam ) It's insane! The performance also seems quite a bit better.

I've had a few stability issues and the game can be quite rough around the loading screens... as well as being awkward on alt-tabbing.

EDIT:

Well, I just finished it and overall it's a wicked ride... "high octane" - well no **** there Sherlock! A game like this requires a good "gaming mouse" or just a mouse that fits well into your hand. Also - there was SCAR ammo avaliable almost all the time!!!!! SCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSC ARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCAR
SCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSC ARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCA
SCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSC ARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCAR SCARSCARSCARSCAR
SCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSC ARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCAR SCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCARSCAR

... and it sounds a bit cooler - especially on the single shot mode. However... the availability of the SCAR ammo and the game play in Warhead made SCAR a bit less special. I mean, shooting the SCAR on auto almost breaks my heart. I'm used to just making headshots with it - it's like a quality-mini-sniper-rifle.... almost!

SCAR= for the NKs.

I'm 40, and I've been playing games since the original Doom{I haven't matured}.....but IMO, games are generally just tech demo's with gameplay being an afterthought.....but that's cool, I didn't spend too much on my new PC{which I needed desperately}, and I'm glad I didn't cause a Nelly Quad and a next gen GPU will kickass.

With the exception of the suit and it's novelties, there's nothing in Warhead that hasn't been done before......and as I said, take away the graphics and the games overall polish and it wouldn't score much more than 7.5/10.

I don't hate the game, but if Crysis and Warhead are the glamour FPSers, then god help me

The graphics definitely do add to Crysis/Warhead, as well as the suit. However - Crysis does have those things and that is what makes it so outstanding. For me. I guess you also have to be "willing" to play the game with Crysis.

When Crysis came out and I've finished it I was kind of underwhelmed. Later though, one night I just started playing it - without any particular expectations. I was more or less blown away.

Anyway - I like it.

Far Cry2 is going to relegate Warhead back to "asshead" status.
