ASUS GeForce GTX 560 DirectCU II TOP Video Card ReviewThu, Aug 25, 2011 - 12:00 AM
Just Cause 2
Just Cause 2 is an open world action-adventure video game. It was released in North America on March 23, 2010, by Swedish developer Avalanche Studios and Eidos Interactive published by Square Enix. Just Cause 2 employs a new version of the Avalanche Engine, Avalanche Engine 2.0, which is an updated version of the engine used in Just Cause. The game will be set on the other side of the world, compared to Just Cause, which is on the fictional tropical island of Panau in Southeast Asia. Rico Rodriguez will return as the protagonist, aiming to overthrow the evil dictator Pandak “Baby” Panay and confront his former boss, Tom Sheldon.
They released a benchmark component of Just Cause 2 that is basically a 2 minute fly through of the demo level that records your average FPS which is great because it is perfectly repeatable. You can see that we maxed out the eye candy with 4x AA, 16x AF, and SSAO to high.
