    Runs like crap for me. It starts off smooth then it just slowly gets worse and crashes. I'm on 8.9 right now, anyone on 8.8 having any luck?

    I guess its a buggy mess just like the first. I just wish the screen wouldn't start flickering like mad when I try to fire a weapon behind cover. Its terribly hard to play when you can't see what you're shooting at :rolleyes:

    Could have something to do with this --

    ""In Crysis Warhead, players will don the Nanosuit of Sergeant Sykes, also known as 'Psycho', one of the most memorable characters from Crysis. More brash and aggressive than his Delta Force squadmate Nomad, players will experience Psycho's parallel story during the events of the original game, finding that life on the other side of the island is even more intense and explosive than they ever could have imagined. Luckily, Psycho's Nanosuit is just as capable and he's equipped with an even bigger arsenal of fully customizable weapons and new vehicles, giving players access to the tools they need to dominate any situation.

    Crysis Warhead is a parallel story to Crysis, one of the most critically-acclaimed first person shooters and PC games of 2007. The game is first title to be developed at Crytek's Budapest studio, and built on a new, enhanced and optimized version of Crytek's CryENGINE 2 technology.""

    lol I agree with that... I mean the graphics are awesome but the game itself left a lot to be desired. But to each their own I guess.

    If you all wana complain about the performance, try DX9 first...I don't have any problems in it. DX10=Flop

    Edit: I'm on 8.7's, and my performance stays decent. Also have not noticed any bugs...guess I'm just lucky:eek:

    Now i realize why they called this game ' Crysis '.
    Crytek have once again released an overhyped piece of shit title.

    It wasnt even worth me recording myself. Crysis Warhead is pretty, pretty shit that is!
    Crytek obviously do not have the First Person Shooter in mind when designing their titles, Whom are they trying to target ? NOOBS!

    10 points for effort to mask up the trashy game. If Crytek thought Crysis failed, then they best shut shop on this one.

    I havnt come across MP mode yet . . . Does anyone see this ? Is it anything like SP mode, or did they stick to a totally irrelevant concept for MP : ROFL <--< Everytime i think of Crysis MP mode, i think of the worst features in all the First Person Shooters ever released, and there you have it.

    Each to their own ?

    Theres the obvious . . .
    & Then . . .
    Theres the denial of the obvious.

    Everyone knows that Crytek have made us pretty and fancy looking game titles.
    Everyone with semi capable hand - eye coordination knows that Crytek have aimed the game at the weakest First Person Shooters amongst us.

    New to the concept of storylines ?
    New to First Person Shooters ?
    Then you should try Crytek's shit . . .

    I didnt hesitate sending Crytek a letter outlining how shit i felt both titles were and have already demanded a refund. Both titles are not worth $100au each.

    The multi-player is waayy better and a lot less buggy than the original. I actually had fun playing it! Gameplay for SP is a lot better too. Much more enemies in packs and explosions galore!

    With everything you said, I don't see a single descriptive complaint about it about what is actually wrong with it? In your opinion what is actually wrong with the game? $100 bucks is absolutely ridiculous though!:shadedshu

    My point is there are people who thought Crysis was a great game, so the old statement "ignorance is bliss" holds up here - if you're entertained that easily, I envy you!

    IMO it's a 7/10 and the only reason it not a 5 or 6 is the graphics.

    It wasn't worth the $40 I paid for it....

    Wouldn't the jumpness be do to the RAM? It is just as jumpy in Gamer as Enthusiast to me. Beat the game an hour ago, the end wasn't as good as the first:(...But super game!:D

    You need some AF, ground looks horrible without it. No idea why Crysis still hasn't got it in game. Tyre track looked good in Crysis, but look awesome in this one (and will look even better with 8xAF)

    Yes. Warhead with DX10 (Enthusiast) needs more than 2gb's of RAM.

    It's a game limitation when Parralax Occlusion Mapping is enabled (Enthusiast mode or very high). AF is only available if Parralax Occlusion Mapping is disabled (r_UsePOM=0).

    Side note about AA:
    2xAA = r_FSAA_samples = 2, r_FSAA_quality = 0
    4xAA = r_FSAA_samples = 4, r_FSAA_quality = 0
    8xAA = r_FSAA_samples = 4, r_FSAA_quality = 2
    8xAAQ = r_FSAA_samples = 8, r_FSAA_quality = 0
    16xAA = r_FSAA_samples = 4, r_FSAA_quality = 4
    16xAAQ = r_FSAA_samples = 8, r_FSAA_quality = 2

    Here is AF when POM is disabled and AF is enabled:

    The difference is very minimal.

    Edit:
    Hey wait a minute, even the text is more sharper.
