Impressions & Score:
Story: 9.5 out of 10
This is an expansion for Crysis, not a new game and is intended to tell the story of Psycho, one of your teammates in Crysis I. During the story in Crysis I, Psycho get separated from Nomad, in order to fulfill another important mission. This new story is quite good and it's connected to the story in Crysis I, which is awesome. Even though it doesn't provide too much info about aliens and characters, I liked the way it was linked to the main story, so this is why I gave a better score.
Graphics: 10 out of 10
The graphics are almost the same as for Crysis I but with some improvements in details in almost everything. This is quite a good thing, I didn't quite noticed at first, but after checking some videos on youtube, the differences are pretty big. If I could have given a better score, I would, this expansion is improved on almost every aspect.
Gameplay: 9.5 out of 10
First of all, I like to mention that this game is a bit harder than Crysis I, but this isn't because of AI improvement, but mostly because of more difficult enemies throught the game. While in the first Crysis, you fought KPA soldiers over 50 % of the game (which were quite weak even on Delta difficulty), in Crysis Warhead, you'll only fight KPA soldiers during the first 10 % of the game. Instead of KPA soldiers, in Crysis Warhead you'll fight a lot of KPA Special Ops (which are bassically nano suit soldiers just like yourself), which are pretty damn good. The producers also included some alien packs that are immune to damage until you destroy the one that generates their shield. All this makes the game a bit more challenging than the first Crysis, which is a good improvement from my point of view. They also added new vehicules and new weapons like grenade launcher, new pistols, new grenades, all this further improves the overall gameplay. Great job !
Audio: 10 out of 10
The audio is similar to the previous Crysis, so that means is excellent. Didn't noticed any differences here.
AI Behavior: 9.5 out of 10
The AI is better, because you don't have to fight too many KPA soldiers, instead you have to fight a lot of aliens, KPA Special Ops and some bosses. The KPA Special Ops are quite good because they use nano grenades to deactivate your suit before moving to attack, the aliens instead, have the same behavior like in Crysis I, so for more details see that review.
Multiplayer: not tested
As with Crysis I, I couldn't test the multiplayer since the servers were deactivated. There are some instructions on the internet on how you can play multiplayer, but I didn't bother to try.
Overall: 9.7 out 10
A lot of improvements done in this expansion compared to the previous Crysis, that makes this game even better. On top of all this, Crysis Warhead is a stand alone game and doesn't require the original Crysis to be played, but in my opionion is very recommended that you play the first Crysis before checking Crysis Warhead, so that you may have a better understanding of what is happening during the storyline. 100 % recommend, a true clasic masterpiece to the fps genre.
