Crysis Warhead Preorders Reveal Crysis Wars

Crysis Warhead preorders are now being accepted at The EA Store, confirming the recently revealed $29.99 price point for Crytek's upcoming first-person shooter follow-up (story). The product description for the game reveals the inclusion of Crysis Wars, "an expanded new multiplayer experience with new online modes and 21 maps including seven all-new maps to battle it out against other players" (thanks inCrysis). Here's the whole feature list, which does not offer a footnote to correspond with that asterisk:

        • Pulse-racing new installment from 2007's PC Game of the Year*: Play as Sergeant Sykes and experience a whole new side of the battle. A standard combat mission behind enemy lines becomes critical when you discover your enemies have captured something of vital importance to the ensuing war. It’s down to you to retrieve the cargo, at any cost.
        • More explosive and dynamic minute to minute game play: new customizable weapons, new vehicles, new photorealistic locations to explore, and a fully interactive war zone to dominate.
        • Enhanced human and alien AI: Intelligent enemies, bigger challenges, and all-new ally squad support.
Includes Crysis Wars®, an expanded new multiplayer experience with new online modes and 21 maps including seven all-new maps to battle it out against other players.
        • Crysis Warhead is a standalone release and does not require ownership of Crysis to play.

I'll give you the alien part (being weak) but the rest still stands. As for reviews - I don't live by them but I meant check them ALL out on metacritic or wherever (an average); surely they can't all be in EA's back pocket and it's pretty naive to suggest otherwise. Overall - it's a great game according to the majority (we'll leave the tech spec's for now as that's a whole other ball game) and that's what counts. Personal opinions are fine (like yours and mine) but to deny the view of the gaming industry press as a whole says more about your own sensibilities and preferences than about the game itself; like I say - maybe some folk who thought they like the genre, don't really much care for it in reality. Anyway, rant over - off to play Project Reality with some of my mates.

P.S. sorry for being uncouth but Crytek are one of 'ours' and soon they're going to be one of 'theirs' (consoles) and that's...just...never good! It makes me all emotional - right, off to drop a JDAM on someone.
