BASIC INFORMATION ON THE GAME

FarCry2 2018 04 10 10 47 19 153

Released : 2008
Genre : Action / Shooter
Developer : Ubisoft Montreal
Publisher : Ubisoft

You are a mercenary abandoned in an African country torn apart by war and malaria. Your task: to find and destroy the weapons baron, for whom this war is a good source of income. A whole army of heavily armed professionals is working against you. Surprise, ingenuity and accurate calculation are your main weapons in this war.

 This time the action of the famous Far Cry series takes place in America. Welcome to Montana - Hope County - the land of the free and the brave, taken over by the fanatics of Eden's Gate. Rebuff Joseph Sid and his supporters. Kindle the fire of resistance.

THE GRAFICAL PART

In this subsection of our review, the main graphical aspects of this game are revealed. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphics settings and the quality of the development of the main visual aspects. 

SUPPORTED OC AND GRAPHICS API

Far Cry 2 is supported on Windows XP, 7/8 and  Windows  10.

uplay 

The priority and main graphics API for Far Cry 2 is  DirectX 9 and 10 .

GAME ENGINE

Far Cry 2 is based on the Dunia Engine. Dunia Engine is a game engine developed by Ubisoft Montreal for their internal projects and first used in the first-person shooter Far Cry 2. Dunia Engine is a proprietary multi-platform game engine that is used by Ubisoft Montreal only for their internal projects and is not available for licensing third party companies. The engine supports DirectX 9, DirectX 10, DirectX 10.1 and DirectX 11. The word "dunia" means "world", "earth", "life" in Urdu, Arabic, Kurdish, Farsi, Hindi, Malay, Indonesian and Turkic languages.

FarCry2 2018 04 10 10 46 20 997

In July 2007, Ubisoft officially announced the PC game Far Cry 2 and stated that the game would be based on a new engine called the "Dunia Engine". The game and engine were developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. At the same time, it was announced that Far Cry 2 is a PC-exclusive. According to an official interview with Louis-Pierre Faran, Far Cry 2 Lead Producer, the Dunia Engine used only 2-3 percent of the CryEngine engine code developed by the German company Crytek, since the entire CryEngine code was completely rewritten. However, it is clear that CryEngine is the basis of the Dunia Engine.

Far Cry 2

On January 4, 2008, an official announcement was made that Far Cry 2 was also being developed for the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3 game consoles. On October 15, 2008, Far Cry 2 went to distribution, becoming the first game to use the Dunia Engine. Later, several patches were released for Far Cry 2 that improved the game itself and the engine. On November 5, 2008, patch 1.01 was released, and on December 17, 2008, patch 1.02 was released.

ADVANCED GAME SETTINGS

Far Cry 2 has a fairly wide range of graphics settings.

Below we have provided screenshots of the game at various graphics settings, where our readers can see the difference between the minimum and maximum graphics quality settings. 

DIFFERENT QUALITY MODES

The difference between the various settings can only be seen on closer inspection.

COMPARISON OF SMOOTHING MODES

Anti-aliasing in the game works pretty well.

GENERAL VISUAL DESIGN AND GAME PHYSICS

Far Cry 2, of course, after Crysis could not claim to be the king of visual effects, but still the world was quite interactive and allowed you to fully interact with it.

FarCry2 2018 04 10 11 10 51 770 FarCry2 2018 04 10 11 13 04 507

Yes, and all sorts of goodies and features were implemented much more than in the last Far Cry 5, below we present a comparative video that has gained immense popularity on the network:

But still, the game itself was rather boring and monotonous, and its failure froze the further continuation of the series for several years. Well, then we will go directly to the gaming tests and determine what impact this game has on modern computer hardware.

FRAPS

 
All video cards were tested at the maximum graphics quality by the Action! program. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. Below is a video of the test segment :  

 Our video cards were tested at resolutions of 1920x1080, 2560x1600 and 3840x2160 at maximum graphics quality settings. And as we'll see, the latest generations of AMD cards leave a lot to be desired in-game performance...

GPU TEST

FarCry2 2018 04 10 10 47 27 851

 In the test of video cards, the default resolution is 1920x1080, other resolutions are added and removed manually. You can also remove and add any positions of video cards. You can also choose any of our test processors from the list in the drop-down menu, comparing its performance with the given video card tests (by default, the most productive solution is selected).

At a resolution  of 1920x1080,   an average FPS of 25 frames was shown by video cards of the Radeon RX 460 or GeForce GTX 750 Ti level. A minimum FPS of at least 25 frames can be provided by video cards of the Radeon RX 460 or GeForce GTX 750 Ti level. A comfortable average FPS of 60 frames can be provided by solutions like the Radeon R7 370 or GeForce GTX 750 Ti.

At a resolution  of 2560x1440,   an average FPS of 25 frames was shown by video cards of  the Radeon RX 460 or GeForce GTX 750 Ti level.  A minimum FPS of at least 25 frames can be provided by video cards of the Radeon R7 370 or GeForce GTX 750 Ti level. A comfortable average FPS of 60 frames can be provided by solutions like  the Radeon RX 470 or  GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.

At a resolution  of 3840x2160,   an average FPS of 25 frames was shown by video cards of the Radeon R7 370 or GeForce GTX 750 Ti level. A minimum FPS of at least 25 frames can be provided by video cards of  the Radeon R9 380X or GeForce GTX 1050 Ti level. A comfortable average FPS of 60 frames can be provided by solutions like  Radeon RX Vega 56 or  GeForce GTX 970.

VIDEO MEMORY CONSUMPTION

Testing of the video memory consumed by the game was carried out by the  MSI Afterburner program. The results on video cards from AMD and NVIDIA at resolutions of  1920x1080 and 2560x1440 with various anti-aliasing settings were taken as the indicator. By default, the graph displays the most up-to-date solutions. Other graphics cards are added and removed from the chart at the reader's request.

The test was conducted on the base configuration Core i 7 5960X @ 4.6 GHz with the amount of pre-installed memory 32 GB DDR4 2400 MGz. All used RAM was taken as an indicator. The RAM test on the entire system was carried out on various video cards without running extraneous applications (browsers, etc.). In the graphics, you can add and remove any resolutions and video cards as desired.
