While Lt. Dunn and the rest of Raptor Team found themselves in a three-way struggle for control of a tropical island turned frozen wasteland, Sgt. "Psyko" Sykes, the British member of the team found himself on the other side of the island – cut off and alone. Except for all the North Koreans and aliens out to get a piece of him, that is. The events in Crysis: Warhead run parallel to those in the critically-acclaimed original with "Psycho's" personality leading to a more intense series of battles throughout the sandbox environment. Mastery of your Nano Muscle Suit is absolutely vital to surviving encounters with human and alien foes as their artificial intelligence has also been enhanced as they attempt to flank, and use cover to their advantage whenever possible.
Warhead is a standalone game and it showcases the new CryEngine 2 to amazing affect with more focused firefights, denser environments and even more vehicular control. The new engine allows play even on machines that struggled with the original. Multi-player Team Instant Action mode adds team deathmatch-style play to the previous Instant Action and Power Struggle multi-player modes. Many original maps return along with new and larger ones for expanded online options that will have players taking to the land, sea and air to achieve dominance. Warhead delivers.
