FarCry 2

Like the original, FarCry 2 is one of the more visually impressive games to be released on the PC to date.  Courtesy of the Dunia game engine developed by Ubisoft, FarCry 2's game-play is enhanced by advanced environment physics, destructible terrain, high resolution textures, complex shaders, realistic dynamic lighting, and motion-captured animations.  We benchmarked the graphics cards in this article with a fully patched version of FarCry 2, using one of the built-in demo runs recorded in the "Ranch" map.  The test results shown here were run at various resolutions with 4X AA enabled.



Once again, the Radeon HD 5850 and GeForce GTX 285 are evenly matched. In the FarCry 2 benchmark, the Radeon HD 5850 pulled slightly ahead when tested at a resolution of 1920x1200, but the GeForce GTX 285 came back to score the victory at the higher resolution.
