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, ranging 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 interesting. You can see above we manage to take a bit of a performance dive in overall FPS. The good news is that the numbers are still extremely playable at all resolutions with a strong 100FPS average at 2560 x 1600. A performance hit when overclocking, though, isn't always unusual, especially when such high FPS are being seen.
