Just Cause 2 employs the Avalanche Engine 2.0, an updated version of the engine used in Just Cause. The game is set on the other side of the world from the original Just Cause, on the fictional island of Panau in Southeast Asia. Panau has varied terrain, from desert to alpine to rainforest. Rico Rodriguez returns as the protagonist, aiming to overthrow the evil dictator Pandak "Baby" Panay and confront his former mentor, Tom Sheldon.

Both HD 7800 series card offered us good performance at 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200. While we see a really nice boost in performance at 2560 x 1600 we still fall just a little shy of that 60 FPS mark with the 56 FPS number we've got here. Just a small detail drop, though, would increase that number to the level we want. Considering the $349 price point, this is pretty impressive.
