After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Crysis Warhead

    Crysis Warhead is the same game as the first Crysis just being told from the point of view of another soldier named Psycho. The character Psycho is on an island just off the coast of China fighting against North Koreans, and some rather cold hearted aliens. Crysis Warhead is a fully fledged DirectX 10 game that has no mercy on any graphics card to date.
    All of the settings per resolution are below, and Anti-Aliasing is turned off during testing.

    2560x1600: Gamer
    1920x1200: Enthusiast
    1680x1050: Enthusiast
    The GeForce GTX 480 has finally made playing Crysis Warhead in 2560x1600 possible, and even enjoyable. The GTX 480 just barely squeaking out the Radeon 5870 for top position on Crysis Warhead. Still, the game is a beast and will not give into Enthusiast settings while running in 2560x1600 resolution.

    Well, at least not well enough to be enjoyable.
