For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

What do these ratings mean?

I've never been happy with Crysis' graphics engine for one simple reason. Despite the fact it has the most realistic foilage and the most realistic lighting, it can't even manage to produce gore effects  on par with games like CoD4 or  Soldier of Fortune.

Why is it I can shoot these North Koreans and they drop dead and just lay their blending into the ground?  I want to be able to have my realistic environment graphics and still tear my enemies to bits with hails of gunfire.

The only thing that even seperates Crysis from Halo is the nanosuits special powers. Yes they are handles very well in the context of the game, but the rest of the game rarely makes you excited. Its like the run-of the mill Technology demonstrator they've been putting out on the PC for years.  ID SOFTWARE used to make games like this. Now they got smart and added story or depth to their titles Doom and Quake.   You've think Electronic Arts would stop producing these goreless, kiddy games and go for some hardcore mature gunplay.

Call of Duty 4 makes me smile when I kill the enemy. Crysis doesn't.

Worse yet, the exploration is nearly absent from this game. Its too linear and that really hurts its replay value. I'm also not happy with the proteagonist, Psycho, as if all the sudden British guys who use profanity are all the rave.

 

CRYSIS Warhead is a game you buy merely to test your hardware. Besides that, its not as exciting as the original and only takes 7 hours maximum to beat.

Fortunately its only $30. Otherwise, I'd feel cheated.
