    Got it 1 hour ago, unfortunately i have to go to work today. Crysis was too shit for me to call in sick for warhead so ill have to wait till i finish work to give it a go.

    Ill be sure to post up some video footage of the gameplay aswell as give you guys some feedback as to how it ran on my pc.

    never seen this much anticipation for a game release, above all its crysis.

    I can tell this is going to be the game of the year, and fulfill all dreams crytek developers had with original crysis .

    Starcraft II is still coming, so is Fallout 3
    I don't think Diablo III will be this year.

    I thought it was only supposed to be $29.99?
    Example @ Amazon.

    It is tempting to go get it to test my GTX260 on something current.

    Picked up at lunch, installed, and got to the 1st check point so far.
    Runs the same as Crysis 1 for me. Seems to be some more details though, and the enviroment blur effect is in full swing.
    One stupid bugger they did is under the Details setting, instead of obvious levels like high and max they use gay names like Gamer and Enthusiast which is rather pointless and muddies the water.
    1680x1050 no AA
    Gamer 25-35fps
    Enthusiast 10-20fps

    Looks great, plays the same, and on Delta mode the enemy can see you a mile away and through any foliage. I'll have fun with it.

    fwiw, the physical game comes with 2 DVDs, one for SP and one for MP (which is called Crysis:Wars).

    I'll have fun with it.

    Crysis Warhead
    1. I add the 4870 profile to the amd.txt file as I saw none (0x1002, 0x9440, 4 // AMD Radeon HD 4870)
    2. I changed the FSAAPrifiles.txt to incorporate ATI's CFAA
    3. Installed Cat 8.9
    4. Start Crysis then go to the options screen and click on the optimize button.

    Well those are some pretty disappointing frames considering what they were saying. I get about that much if not more on the original.

    Don't want to argue with you, but I highly doubt you get those frames on te original, all Very High and all that much AA (first CFAA mode is 12X right?) applied to 1680x1050.

    I'm also glad to see this time POM works much better too. I'll have to see the game running to judge the lighting though. It looks simpler on every screenshot I have seen to date.
