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.

Far Cry 2 manages to see some very good performance and some nice gains are seen when compared to the reference HD 6970. Compared to the GTX 580 we can see it manages to lose out at the lowest resolution, but does indeed show its dominance as it climbs the resolution table which is very interesting and something that you need to make note of.
