Review by Mike Doolittle:
"Warhead is both less linear and more scripted than Crysis, combining the best elements of the Call of Duty archetype and melding them seamlessly with the dynamic gameplay that made Crysis such a standout shooter. Not only is it a dramatic improvement over the already impressive original, but it stands as a beacon of progress to the glut of first-person shooters stuck in their rigidly scripted ruts, showing that open-ended gameplay and carefully scripted dramatic tension need not be mutually exclusive. As before, the highly interactive environments and cunning artificial intelligence of the enemies combine with the broad palette of weapons and abilities to create near-endless ways to experience the game. Warhead rewards players for their creativity, not their memorization skills."
