The first teaser trailer for Crytek's shooter follow-up Crysis Warhead (PC) has been released, offering a brief look at some of the game's new additions and features.

Featuring a story which runs parallel to the events of the original Crysis, the title is said to employ a more free-roaming approach to gameplay than its somewhat linear predecessor.

Crysis Warhead will hit retailers this fall.

        I thought Crysis was fantastic. Have you actually played the game?

          Is it that difficult to believe that some people thought Crysis sucked after playing through the game?

          Please, compare it to games like Half-Life, Call of Duty, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and even Farcry. Then tell me it's not complete and utter rubbish coated with nice graphics.

            I can believe that people thought it sucked. But I tend to trust reviewers more. 91 on Metacritic.
            Now Jericho. There is a game that was complete rubbish coated in nice graphics. How about Alone in the Dark. Sure it looks good but really isn't.

            Crysis has it's faults but it takes way more flack than it should just because it dared push the boundries. And then everyone decided to jump on the Crysis is crap bandwagon jsut because their systems couldn't handle it. Shame on them.

              If you trust the metacritic reviews so much then how about this one:

              "Fast forward through scraps of miserable story and melodramatic dialogue, along with a "boss battle" inherited from the coin-op class of '88 (see: "Contra"), and the ordeal is done -- beautiful throughout, mostly amazing, but vegetative by the end."

              And still this person gave it an 80, for a game with a "miserable story and melodramatic dialogue" an 80, in my opinion, is just there to get this reviewer paid.

              Crysis looks good, granted, there are also some good gameplay dynamics ripped from prior games.

              Consider the rest of it though:
              The AI was awful, the "story" was made from bits of bad action movies ripped to pieces and thrown in, the dialogue and voice acting was mediocre at best and the vehicles were useless.

              The only thing Crysis had going for it was the graphics and the suit powers (which, thanks to the terrible AI, you could do very little with). That's not enough for me, if being able to blow shit up with "zOmG aw3some" nano-suit powers is all it takes to get a game a rating of 100 (I'm assuming that's metacritic's perfect score) then somewhere along the line these critics forgot what criticism actually is and are now just licking the ass of publishing companies like EA so they can get paid this week.

              I leave you with a screenshot of my play through of the game:

        They're definitely tech demos, the thing is what games actually use the Crysis engine? I can't think of any ones; compare that to UT.

      Crysis was and is awesome. Many people here are just pissed off about the overly high requirements. In fact probably 90% of the people who say its 'just' a tech demo probably never really played it significantly because of low fps. Crysis was easily one of the best strictly FPS of the year.

      I think people also kind of get 'reverse-blinded'. What I mean by that is they see the graphics and instead of being blind into loving the game because of eye candy they criticize the game by saying it only has good graphics and glossing over the significantly good gameplay it does have. In fact there are not many modern stict FPS games that give you the amount of freedom of how you approach an objective as Crysis does.

      How much of the game did you even play?

        Because obviously if he played the entire game he'd like it? I played through once on normal and 1/2 through Delta, and it bores me to fucking death. Some of you can;t seem to come to terms with the fact that many of us dislike Crysis and don't care about a sequel.

          If you don't like it fine. But calling it a tech demo is just stupid when the game offers far more than many modern FPS games. It just earns this tech demo title because of its impressive graphics (which most cannot appreciate because of their rigs).

            Where in either my post or dedgeckos did we refer to it as a tech demo? Did you reply to the right post?

        I played through the game twice. Once after release, and a second time through after their second major patch of memory leaks / performance tweaks.

        There are parts that are enjoyable. But when those parts get overly repeated with increasingly annoying limits to what you can do, and the subsequent hit that my system took half way through the game which forced me to play through it at a substandard level of quality - the game gets annoying. And for them to end the story with a cliffhanger that rivals the level of absurdity and annoyance of Halo 2 - yea, fuck them, I'm happy if they don't make another game again and go out of business. I will not support half-assed gimmicks and story lines.

      Contrarily, I don't think it looks enough like Crysis. Crysis is foremost a stealth game. This looks more action oriented. Which worries me.
