Starcraft II & Left 4 Dead 2
StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is a military science fiction real-time strategy video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. A sequel to the award-winning 1998 video game StarCraft, the game was released worldwide on July 27, 2010. It is split into three installments: the base game with the subtitle Wings of Liberty, and two upcoming expansion packs, Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void. StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty has had a successful launch, selling three million copies worldwide in less than a month.
We tested Starcraft II at two resolutions. The first is at the notebook's native resolution, the second is by connecting a 1920x1080 monitor to the notebook and making that the only display device.
Testing at the native resolution of 1366x768 with low settings nets playable performance on Starcraft II. If you're on the go and have some down time to get some gaming in, this is certainly a good way to pass the time.
Left 4 Dead 2
The Sequel to Valve Corporation's award-winning Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2 involves the aftermath of an apocalyptic pandemic. There has been an outbreak of a pathogen that causes infected humans to behave like zombies. The four survivors have to fight their way through the hordes of infected, using safehouses along the way to rest and recover in order to reach extraction points. This takes place in the southern United States, featuring Savannah, GA and New Orleans, LA.
We tested Left 4 Dead 2 at two resolutions. The first is at the notebook's native resolution the second is by connecting a 1920x1080 monitor to the notebook and making that the only display device.
Performance in Left 4 Dead 2 was below what we consider to be playable until we dropped to 1024x768. Running at a 4:3 aspect ratio with a widescreen isn't ideal as it adds black bars to the sides, but it was enough to make Left 4 Dead 2 playable.
