Nathan Meunier writes: "Crysis Warhead gives gunners greater flexibility to throw caution to the wind. Greater balance allows for a more varied approach to gameplay. The game is more entertaining for allowing such dalliances. Taking the ninja approach is still necessary at times, but you can also jump out of the bushes and run headlong into a small mass of adversaries with guns blazing without being mowed down instantly. At least sometimes. Fortunately, the greater emphasis on high-octane, straightforward combat doesn't devolve the experience into a meat-headed shooter."
