Crysis Warhead is retailing very cheap, about £18 thats a great price for a stand alone game. (you won’t need vanilla crysis to play this) Although if you are going to go for Crysis Warhead you should at least know the story or have played original Crysis. Crysis Warhead had said to be optimized for a PC worth just $600 so cheaper than ever more optimized than ever, great graphics, great improvements!
I know I’m sold.
