I wonder why some people spend $5,000 on a rig to play a $30 game..

Anyways, I really enjoyed the game, though it was alittle short..

I agree with you the game was a little shot, however it does explain the 29.99 price tag.

As for someone spending $5,000 on computer to play this game just think how well other games will play on it.

I spent...1200$ on my computer, heh.
For the people who hasn't finished yet, there's a super e-peen enhancing gun at the end of the game.

Gauss rifle is surprisingly plentiful this time around. I like it, it's not as weapon scarce (other than FY71) Laser pointer+Gauss = hip sniping

I'm not sure whats going on but Crysis seems to run fine, but Crysis Warhead is giving me an unusual amount of lag.

I dont know if it is just me....but I have TERRIBLE audio corruption with vista 64 bit. Video was bad, then I updated my video drivers and it fixed it. But I am getting considerable shitty audio. Cracking sounds and lots of feedback. All other games are fine.

Now, I regularly defrag my system, and did so only about two weeks ago. Considering that no other programs have been installed since then, it's enough to make me wonder whether this game, or the install process through Steam, plays hell with the file table.
I always defrag after a huge install like a game. I also run CCleaner too incase any leftover junk is still lurking around. Not usually right after install, I'll play for a while, but when I'm done for the day I'll do it. And then it's fresh for next time :).

Exactly, that was the best. Pretty much unstoppable with that bad boy combo. Whoever I couldn't snipe with the Gauss from way off, got it point blank. :)

I'm loving this game! Mostly I sux a bit at gamin' but I can actually finish all the levels in this one so far. OK, sure I had to go back a few times on some parts....most parts....but the graphics are great and it is a blast to play!
