Ground Control 2 is an action-oriented game of tactics and warfare. As Captain Jacob Angelus of the Northern Star Alliance, you will command squads of infantry, artillery, and air power against the might of the Empire of Terra. Base building and resource-collecting are replaced with unit control and combat tactics where your knowledge of the battlefield maneuvers will make the difference in your fight against a ruthless enemy. Position your troops on hilltops for better aim or inside buildings and forests for protection as you'll need to use every inch of terrain to your advantage.
For our benchmarks, we used the highest possible settings on the first mission of the single player game and moved around the camera to get an average frame rate using fraps.
Ground Control II offers really impressive graphics without requiring much GPU power.
Rather mixed results. The 7800 GTX is without doubt the best performer at all the tested resolutions. The EN7800 GT didn't do that badly, trailing the 7800GT by by several frames but simply ran out of steam at 1600x1200.
With AA and AF enabled, the performance from all cards is considerably reduced. Surprisingly though, the N7800 GT card manages to hang in and produce some impressive framerates.
