Just Cause 2

Timedemo or Level Used: Dark Tower

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.




Just Cause 2 performance is strong across the board and we see a nice boost in performance. Again, though, we see that at the highest resolution the HD 7970 GHz Edition did a good job of staying ahead of the competition.


Even with the GTX 680 Lightning overclocked we see the overclocked HD 7970 GHz Edition manages to sneak ahead - like Mafia II, though, it's by only a single FPS again.
