I want to buy Crysis, but I see there is Crysis, Crysis Warhead and Crysis Max Edition. The thing here is that Crysys Warhead has a multiplayer component, but does it add anything extra to the story of Crysis, or does it only add multiplayer?

Crysis Warhead isn't a multiplayer component. It's a fully single-player game in fact, telling the story from the viewpoint of Psycho, with in my humble opinion better gameplay than the original.

You're talking about Crysis Wars, which is a separate game bundled with Warhead, as its multiplayer component. This is in contrast with Crysis where the multiplayer was integrated.

I would say getting Warhead is definitely worth it to add to the story and have a multiplayer game.

Oh!!! ok thank you very much ... I think I was missunderstanding Crysis Warhead. I should buy then the Maximum edition in order to play it completely. Thanks for your answer. – alFador Jul 9 '10 at 13:33
+1, Warhead was the first real game in the series, the first Crysis was a tech demo more than anything. – kotekzot Jun 3 '12 at 20:10
