Far Cry 2
Far Cry 2 (DirectX 10)
Far Cry 2 is the spiritual sequel to one of the best selling and longest living games on the PC though this title was developed not by Crytek, but by Ubisoft directly using a completely new engine as well. The game is set in Africa and you have malaria – what else do you need to know?

Far Cry 2 includes a great benchmarking utility that allows us to setup for in-game testing of all varieties and includes both the ability to benchmark based on time (variable frame count) or based on speed (fixed frame count) – we went with the time-based option to simulate real-world gaming and allowing for apples-to-apples comparisons.
During our Far Cry 2 tests, all three cards were neck-in-neck in the lower resolution benchmarks. But, as we started to head closer to 1920×1200 resolutions, the 9600GT started to fall behind the GTS 250 and HD 4770. However, all the average FPS scores we recorded were well over 56 frames per second, which is more than enough for an enjoyable, high-resolution gaming experience.
