Once we arrive at 1600x1200 we are roughly at the resolution that most of you guys game in, depending on your monitor of course. Even a 129 USD Radeon 4830 is strong enough to push hard. A sweet spot for me personally would be the GTX 260 in SLI. Followed closely by the Radeon 4870 X2 and single GeForce GTX 280.
The budget minded will play the game at 1280x1024. So let's leave out the high-end cards out of the equation for a minute. The reality here is that if you pick up a Radeon 3870 which sell for like 70 bucks these days, you can play this game at 1280x1024 with extensive eye candy enabled, which includes 4xAA.
I'm pretty confident that we again have a massive title here that's going to be a huge success. I'm also confident that the game won't be everybody's cup of tea. Most of us that have had a taste of COD 4 Modern Warfare, really would like to see more of that. It was new and awesome.
Personally, I however have had a great time thus far with the game. The performance should not really be an issue for any modern graphics card as we have shown you today. Mainly the reason behind this is of course that the COD4 graphics engine was used. Surely it has a coupe of tweaks here and there to improve the look and feel of the game. The reality remains though that the title still looks fantastic. The creators managed to give the game that important look and feel, so if you are into the genre, you'll absolutely love this title.
Meanwhile .. I still have to finish it, so guys, if you don't mind I'm ending this article to ambush some of the bad guys.
