World in Conflict


World in Conflict is a real-time strategy video game by Massive Entertainment and to be published by Sierra Entertainment for Windows (DX9 and DX10) and the Xbox 360.


The game is set in 1989 where economic troubles cripple the Soviet Union and threaten to dissolve it. However, the title pursues a "what if" scenario where, in this case, the Soviet Union does not collapse and instead pursues a course of war to remain in power. It is an intensive new game is sure to put plenty of stress on even the latest graphics cards and we use the built-in benchmarking for our testing.

World in Conflict ranks up there with Command and Conquer: Red Alert on the "fun" scale for me and I tend to think of it like C&C: RA with much better graphics. We see that the LAN Shark is able to run the game at 1920 x 1200 with only a small penalty over 1680 x 1050. Overclocking the processor a little more would give the system a much better score, but for an OEM system the numbers are really good.


Far Cry 2


Far Cry 2, the next-generation first-person shooter from Ubisoft, will take you deep into the most beautiful but also most hostile environments in the world: Africa! More than just a visual and technological achievement, Far Cry 2, the true sequel to the award-winning PC game, will provide you with an unprecedented gaming experience.


The Dunia Engine was built specifically for Far Cry 2 by the award-winning Ubisoft Montreal development team. It delivers the most realistic destructible environments, amazing special effects such as dynamic fire propagation and storm effects, real-time night-and-day cycle, dynamic music system, non-scripted enemy A.I. and so much more.

Maybe I took Far Cry 2's benchmark software a little too far. Either way, we now have a lot of data to work with in the future. The LAN Shark is able to give us playable graphics all the way up to 1920x1200 in Ultra High mode without AA enabled. Anything over that and the game starts to get a little choppy.
