Shogun 2 is set in 16th-century feudal Japan, in the aftermath of the Onin War. The country is fractured into rival clans led by local warlords, each fighting for control. The player takes on the role of one of these warlords, with the goal of dominating other factions and claiming his rule over Japan. The standard edition of the game will feature a total of eight factions (plus a ninth faction for the tutorial), each with a unique starting position and different political and military strengths.

Under the 1280 x 720 preset we can see that we've got no problem dealing with Shogun on the HD 6850 Vapor-X. When we move to 1920 x 1200 and the high preset, though, we see our cards both get smashed by the extra detail.
