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.

We continue to see these nice little gains thanks to the overclock as we move to Just Cause 2. Unfortunately it's not quite enough at the highest resolution to break that 60 FPS mark. We're close at 57 FPS, though, so a slight overclock or detail drop will bring the number up.
