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: Off
    Anisotropic Filter: 16x
    Vsync: Off
    HBAO: On
    The factory overclock just starts to make BF Bad Company 2 playable at the higher resolutions and the highest overclock just gives a little more in this area. As for the lower resolutions the numbers speak for themselves with great improvements.
