    I do hope that these optimisations will be carried on to the original crysis as TBH it does run pretty crap on my 3850 512mb at 1650x1080.

    I can't wait for multiplayer. I wonder if it will allow the external steam server browser to look for servers for it.

    Lowering computer requirements does this mean it will be optimised way better than Crysis so ya dont need a hypothetical future computer from space to run it?

    Yup, according to the review, it runs smoothly with max settings using an 8800GTS. Should probably run fine with 8800GT equivalent or above. Plus they say it has even better graphics, lighting, higher resolution textures, particle effects and better multiplayer than the original Crysis. :toast:

    I think Farcry2 will be a nice refreshner from the tropical setting.

    Farcry 2 a console game as well, so graphically warhead will win, But as for gameplay will have to wait and see.

    I don't think this could beat COD4 about gameplay, it does look better, but the gameplay is nothing special.
    Personally, I think Crysis should the Op ways, I mean like Hitman, kill in silent, with all the nano suit skills...

    Hrmm... for $29.99 its a great buy. But still, I wish the SP campaign was longer than 5 hours, maybe 8-9 hours. But for $30 I can't complain too much. Dammit... Crysis Warhead or Spore. I've been wanting both of these games for a while now.

    Called up Best Buy, looks like they will have it in stock later on today. They are waiting for the truck to arrive with the goods.
