Crysis Warhead updates and refines the gameplay of Crysis through a side story plot involving Psycho, one of previous protagonist Nomad’s allies. The game is a parallel story that follows Sergeant Michael “Psycho” Sykes, a character from the original Crysis, as he faces his own trials and challenges on the other side of the island during the time period of the first game. It features new fully customizable weapons, vehicles and enemies, along with new multiplayer content. It also showcases a new, enhanced and optimized version of Cry Engine 2.
Playing in “Gamer” mode automatically sets resolution to 1280×1024 and optimizes the other settings around this resolution.
Again we see that CrossFire provides a nice boost to performance that puts it on the borderline of playable at the highest resolution with AA enabled! The Diamond 4870 1GB is again very close in performance the GTX 260 core 216, so much so that without FRAPS you would not be able to tell the difference between the two.
