After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Battlefield: Bad Company 2

    Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is a huge game for the PC market, making a nice spot among gaming clans everywhere.  It has a good singleplayer storyline about a superweapon in South America.  BFBC2 is built on the Frostbite game engine which is fully DirectX 11 compliant.  It has a fully destructible environment which makes it a stunningly visual game which pushes the limits of any video card.
    Settings used in testing are as followed.

    Level of Detail: High
    Texture Quality: High
    Shadow Quality: High
    Effects Quality: High
    Anti Aliasing: 8x
    Anisotropic Filter: 16x
    Vsync: Off
    HBAO: On
    The tessellation in this game puts some real strain on any video card, and while all of the cards we tested come out looking pretty good the GTX560 Ti came out looking the best.  This is a statement that should make everyone do a doubletake on the results.
