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.
Here we see nice gains again, and just like Lost Planet 2, we see the best performance increase come at 2560 x 1600.
This time it's slightly more significant, though, as we move from 59 FPS, a number that falls below the 60 FPS we're always on the hunt for to provide a solid gaming experience.
The HAWK smashes past the 60 FPS barrier and ends up giving us a solid 74 FPS.
