Product Description

Product Description

Great Games and Accessories for the PC from Gamesbuyer.

Manufacturer's Description

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great game - idiotic DRM 20 Sep 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Crysis Warhead is a great game - amazing I could say. The graphics are fantastic, the gameplay on a par with Crysis - there really is nothing I can possibly fault.

The DRM forced upon you when you install Warhead is insane. The DRM is turning away potential customers while the pirates can play without the EA malware being installed on your PC.

If this 'pseudo-virus' was mentioned on the retail box I would never have purchased this game and I will never purchase another EA game as long as I live.

Avoid Crysis Warhead. Avoid EA. Avoid potentially illegal, non-optional and damaging malware disguised as anti-piracy measures.

4.0 out of 5 stars An achievement by Crytek...an insult from EA 7 Oct 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Warhead is an exceptional game: breathtaking graphics, captivating plot and above all, awe-strikingly fun.

The problems however, arose the moment EA laid their hands on this masterpiece-to-be. Failing to notice those terrifying words, 'internet connection required for product activation', I was bound to be in for a rough ride. Installation was slow yet suspenseful, as I knew something just had to go wrong. 30 minutes later and hey presto! SecuRom. May I add at this point that I don't have an internet connection, so I was forced (ashamedly) to download a crack containing the paul.dll and the exe file, making me a reluctant criminal. May I also add I own a legal copy of this game for which I payed £20. Installing any EA game these days feels like being electronically violated; they're so kind as to give you an EA download manager that assists you in making purchase of future EA games easier, blummin cheeky if you ask me.

After some amount of forum surfing I finally managed to get the game up and running, welcomed with an uncontrollable feeling of pleasure and excitement. Goodbye EA, hello Crytek. User Interface is tidier and faster with an enhanced theme tune. After a few clicks I was ready to go, and what a journey I was in for!

Everything about Warhead is either on par with the original, or much better. Sharper graphics, more motion blur, new weapons, more immersive. This game is flawless. I was tempted to knock the rating down to three stars but decided against it in honor of Crytek's great work. Yes EA deserve a slapped bottom but the game is essentially what we are reviewing here.

I advise caution if buying the game that there may be a problem here and there but once up and running it's worth every penny. If you owned Crysis, DEFINITELY buy this. If you've never played Crysis before, Warhead is a standalone so you can buy it anyway!

Superb: *****

1.0 out of 5 stars Great game, terrible DRM 30 Sep 2008
By Brian
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Didn't realise this game carried the DRM before I bought it. Would never have done so otherwise. Installed ok and then took 30mins for the DRM to go through. Kept coming up with an error on activation.
Gameplay is the same as the original, just a new storyline, so make do with the original and leave this alone.
We need to make a stand agaisn't the DRM, it takes away our consumer rights. I will not buy another game from EA if it contains a DRM! I hope they lose millions over this.

4.0 out of 5 stars An actual *review* of the game... 20 Sep 2008
By Michael Sutherland VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
DRM concerns aside (it loaded and installed fine on mine), Crysis Warhead is a pretty spectacular game. I'd read a few previews saying that you'd knit into Nomad's adventures in Crysis, but you don't - it's a completely separate game with only a few mentioned references. You don't even jump out of the plane with Nomad at the start.

Anyway, installation is fairly easy - and it ran fine on medium settings on my old single core 3.2Ghz, 3Gb RAM, ATI X1650, WinXP machine. Now I was a hardcore Nomad fan, but the first thing you notice when you play is that Sykes is a bit cooler - the 'maximum' demo at the start is very slick, and the intro shows both Sykes' macho and more human side.

The game is, as you'd expect, much more explosive - but you can play stealthily too, which seems a bit odd; whilst Sykes gets better weapons, he's no more robust than Nomad, and you can't take more damage - although you can deal out more. There are a few touches which I couldn't decide whether they were nice or irritating - your gunsight freezes / mists over when it gets *really* cold, making aiming almost impossible at long range - but then you don't really want to be at long range in those levels.

There are a lot of impressive vehicle explosions, and the driving levels aren't too tricky - the hovercraft is a nice touch, as is the armoured van. You can also capture tanks and the buggies, which are powerful and speedy, respectively.

There are a few vehicle-guarding levels - there's a long session on a train, much like the convoy sequence in Quake 4; one where you pursue an ally in an armoured van, protecting him - which could potentially have been *very* annoying, but he didn't die when I played on normal, and the mass destruction of other vehicles is great.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why annoy your loyal customers? 5 Oct 2008
By J. Reed
I don't understand it. I've bought Civ games since the original, I've even lost a copy and rebought it so why punish me for being a good customer by using SecuROM? I've googled "colonization civ 4 torrent" and there are numerous torrents listing Civ 4 Col. for download so presumably the SecuROM hasn't stopped the game being hacked quickly, but has alienated loyal customers and I would bet turned some of the people who would have paid for the game into people who now download it instead.

I'm waiting for them to release an improved SecuROM free version before I part with my money and find that it won't load, or my constant upgrading of my PC means I can't continue to play the game.

I know, why don't they use the money they spend on SecuROM to reduce the price of the game? Surely cheaper games would make people less likely to want to torrent it?

1.0 out of 5 stars DRM = NO sale.
Read the other reviews. Don't bother buying this game! If you want to play it you are better off pirating it. At least that way there is a chance you will get it to work.
