I remember the legendary war between Doom 3 and Half-Life 2: two games that were battling it out for FPS supremacy in 2004. It turned out to be one of the" best and last years of good PC gaming before the consoles took over. Half-Life 2 and Doom 3...

Theyve made a drama out of it. A worthwhile follow-up thats disappointingly brief, but great fun while it lasts. There are times when special powers would come in rather handy. Super speed to get you to the train station on time; invisibility to...

In the year since the original shooter Crysis arrived, little has changed. The game is still graphically superior to anything else, still terrific fun and still requires a hefty PC to run well. Warhead is a stand-alone expansion pack at a...

Crysis: Warhead is of the same formula that produced the original Crysis, but refined and tweaked a little. The single-player campaign is very short, and it doesnt really involve doing anything extraordinary that wasnt done in the original game....

Crysis Warhead is a fun and exciting game, and for the cost of $29.95 it’s well worth it, especially if you consider Crysis Wars comes with it. Crysis Wars alone is worth the cost of the the game. Gameplay is fine, there’s nothing changed...
