Excerpt: The idea of a Tekken 6 PSP port seemed uninteresting at first, but when word got out that it'd be very similar to the home console versions, I had to check it out. Fighting games do often wind up very well suited to a portable system, as the quick bouts and short-attention-span action are perfect for when you're spending fifteen minutes waiting at a doctor's office or in a parking lot.
Excerpt: CRYTEK is well known for making games that focus heavily on beautifully realised tropical landscapes and big-balled protaganists. Crysis Warhead is no exception to this pattern.

Warhead tells a parallel tale to Nomad’s jungle romp in the original Crysis.
