Shattered Horizon is a multiplayer first-person shooter where players fight in zero gravity surrounded by the broken remains of Earth's orbital infrastructure and billions of tons of rocky debris thrown into orbit by a huge explosion on the Moon. In Shattered Horizon, players have complete freedom of movement. They can make full use of the space setting and zero gravity to set up tactics and strategies that would be impossible in games constrained by gravity.
Shattered Horizon is a niche market type of game since it requires a DirectX 10 GPU as well as windows Vista/7 and is similar to 3DMark Vantage in image quality, so at both resolutions "balanced" settings were used, shown above with 2x MSAA and Ambient Occlusion on, on the International Space Station (ISS) map.
Shattered Horizon is a DirectX 10-only game which is one of the most graphically intensive games I currently own, you can see the 9600 GSO gets down to single digit framerates at the higher resolution. The AXLE Radeon HD 5670 is only a few FPS behind the GeForce GTS 250, and just ahead of the GT 240 which I consider a good showing.
