Far Cry 2 Benchmark Tool

Far Cry 2 Benchmark Tool. I found Far Cry 2 Benchmark Tool finally. I wanted to benchmark all the 3D games that I have starting with Far Cry 2. Normally, games will have benchmark function after pull down the development console. However, Far Cry 2 skips all the hard ways. Far Cry 2 has its own benchmark tool. It is called FC2BenchmarkTool.exe and located at C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Far Cry 2\bin.

    Crysis is indeed better but the story is too short for both original & warhead… πŸ™ btw…have you finish the original crysis? I have finished both games & what I can say is WOW!!!

  2. @Aaron: My GPS point me to another wrong box. No wonder that I stuck there for so long until I quit playing the games. πŸ˜›
    Finished original Crysis. Playing Crysis Warhead right now. I like Crysis graphics. It looks so nice with all the setting to the MAX. πŸ˜€
