Crysis Warhead is a stand-alone expansion for last year’s hit PC title, Crysis, which means it doesn’t cost too much money and you don’t need the original game installed to play it. If you're an "average gamer," odds are you didn’t play it for the sole fact that your PC couldn’t handle it and you didn’t feel like spending two thousand dollars for one game. I can’t blame you, but for anyone with a PC that could handle it, the flawed but entertaining Crysis gave some of the best FPS gameplay of last year.
The story of Warhead follows Sergeant Michael "Psycho" Sykes of Raptor Team, the meathead smart-ass squadmate from the original Crysis. Psycho is trying to find and secure a large cargo container that is usually used to transport nuclear warheads. Apparently, Crytek decided that the most cliché of the original cast needed more fleshing out, and he now has his own five-hour adventure that takes place during the events of the original. For anyone who didn’t get a chance to check out the original, it followed Nomad, soldier in the US Army’s special Raptor Squadron; a group of highly trained soldiers equipped with highly advanced Nano Muscle Suits. These Nanosuits can be used to give the soldiers enhanced abilities including speed, strength, and armor boosts, as well as having a limited invisibility option.
