Take on the fight as the volatile Sergeant “Psycho” Sykes in a new parallel story taking place during the events of Crysis. Psycho’s secret mission will take him to the other side of the island on a ruthless pursuit of a North Korean general hell-bent on obtaining powerful technology. With the versatile powers of his Nanosuit and an arsenal of fully customizable weapons & vehicles at his disposal, Sykes will do whatever it takes to carry out his top-secret objective.
Action on the other side of the island is more intense, the battles are fierce, and the mission protocol is no longer “Adapt to Survive”. As Sergeant Sykes, now you must adapt to dominate the battle. Twin SMG’s blazing, seizing new vehicles, or going stealth, the action and the victory is on your terms.

If you loved Crysis 1, you will love this game. The story runs alongside the main campaign of Crysis 1 but is set on the other side of the island. This is a nice idea as it fleshes out the original story with more characters. The dialogue is frequently funny and I loved playing as Psycho (the main character) The gameplay and graphics are top notch as always and truly impressed me, even in 2013 with games like Battlefield 3 and Crysis 3 nipping at the heels of the original Crysis' graphical fidelity. In short, if you enjoyed Crysis 1, go get it. If you have not been introduced to the Crysis series, this is a great place to start.
Good expansion packbritishlad | May 12, 2013 | See all britishlad's reviews »
This is a stand alone expansion for Crysis and probably one of the last expansion packs (before dlc) for a first person shooter. In this one, you will play as Psycho (Who sounds and acts like Jason Statham), another member of the team which have been sent to retrieve an alien's container.
Like its predecessor, this game put you against the Koreans and aliens. In this one, the combat will be more mixed between aliens and Koreans. It will not be against only one or the other clan. That will occur sometimes where you will see both fighting at each other. That will be a good opportunity for you to run aside from the fight.
The campaign last 7 missions and is good for about 10 hours. It's more of the same but it has some excellent set pieces and it's better paced than the original. It's definitely worth a purchase if you are a fan of the series
Good game, but basically the sameabelfs | Jan. 14, 2013 | See all abelfs's reviews »
If you dislike the first Crysis (something doubtful), don't buy this one. Very much Crysis style but with a lot more packed into 5 hours of mayhem much to the style of 'Psycho'. The Cry engine 2 seems to definitely have had its optimization improved as the game actually looks better but also runs better than the original. The action is more intense but its not to say that there aren't areas where you will make use of being stealthy. Just enjoy it!
Crysis Warhead - reviewcarlyle | Dec. 25, 2012 | See all carlyle's reviews »
The plot of Warhead moves in parallel but definitely synthesized compared to what we saw in Crysis and this time the player will be made to dress the suit futuristic Sergeant Sykes, also known as Psycho veterans of the series. Warhead is then set in another portion of the family tropical island, exactly the opposite coast, a strip of land that sets the stage for a much more fast-paced gameplay is where the action component to it as a protagonist. The 7-hour in which the game can be finished fly away in an instant, thanks to a series of events that are away from the first Crysis Warhead much. On the one hand the cutscenes made with the game engine and third-person narration to add that touch of a plot certainly more developed than almost immediately confronts the player with the aliens about to conquer the Earth, from 'on the other hand almost a downside due to a linearity that apparently leaves a little 'less freedom to the player, but completely eliminates the long periods of stasis that characterized Crysis, especially when traveling to a mission objective to the next. all enemies already seen in Crysis Warhead but that are launched against the player almost immediately when you consider that just the third level already meet the huge Hunter. But going to dig deeper into some innovation we can find in this area and, to be more precise in terms of artificial intelligence. The soldiers must be said, did not gain great genius but respond in a much more realistic in any hit and run tactics that take advantage of invisibility.
A good standalone expansionZinzun | Sept. 24, 2012 | See all Zinzun's reviews »
This is a standalone expansion of the first Crysis,and you will play like an other member of the original team,playing the same story from a different side (like Half-Life Opposing Force).The graphics are good as the original was,but the gameplay is more frenetic and the locations more suggestive. It takes about 10 hours to be completed,so is long too. Buy this if you loved the first game.
