Wahey, it’s another video! But it’s a bank holiday, so you should be grateful you’re getting anything at all out of us tradition-spurning Brits, quite frankly. Plus it’s apparently a leaked video, which adds the scintillating thrill of watching something you’re not supposed to. Because seeing footage of games that might make you want to buy them is a bad thing. Yes.
I wasn’t particularly looking forward to Warhead because I found the latter half of Crysis about as much fun as licking hobos, but this intro/trailer/whatever kinda works on me. I dig that there’s no speaking, because Crytek and exposition are rarely the best of friends. I dig that it’s suggesting Psycho’s nano-suit is potentially capable of doing more than a hop, a skip and a chokehold before running out of power. And I dig that there’s a hint of a meaningful nemesis, which was rather lacking in Crysis itself. There are no guarantees of any of these things, but hell – I now own a 24″ monitor and I really want something purdy to break it in with. That is all that matters in life. That and the starving children and lepers and stuff.
