Modern Warfare 2 is set five years on from COD4 and brings a new villain into town: Vladimir Makarov. All the trouble all starts when Makarov frames the US for a terrorist attack on a Russian airport (yes, the infamous airport level). The rest of the story follows the same intertwined British and US mission format as before, and the missions are all incredible set-pieces that involve storming oil rigs, climbing icy cliffs and, of course, an adrenaline packed snowmobile chase. Visually the 3D engine seems to be the same as the COD4 one, it's tweaked and nearly abused to push out the very best of it's capability. the result is a very decent looking game really, smoke, fog, sun, vegetation detailed texturing of objects building and characters.
Our image quality settings are the most complex you can set in-game. 4x AA, maxed out anisotropic filtering, the best textures, everything is enabled to it's maximum capability. Any decent graphics card can run the game, it's that simple. There's no need to give in to lower quality settings.
I did not have the results done for the Radeon 4770 just yet, so i took it's closest comparative, the Radeon 4830 512MB.
Image Quality setting:
16x Anisotropic Filtering
All settings maxed out
Obviously 1920x1200 is not a resolution to really compare well in considering this budget graphics card ; as you can see for yourself. Fact remains that the game is playable at 4xAA up-to 1920x1200 yet recommended is 1600x1200. If you want some more, then flick down image quality settings.
