Crysis Warhead updates and refines the gameplay of the original game through a sidestory 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 also showcases a new, enhanced and optimized version of CryEngine 2 using full DX10 extensions and is the first game developed by Crytek's Budapest studio.

 

Windows Vista SP1 vs. Vista SP2 Release Candidate Performance

 

Under Crysis Warhead, SP1 is able to steam out in front in the maximum FPS department, but when it comes to the all important minimum FPS rate, SP2 is well out in front and because of this it is able to offer a better average FPS, just slightly.
