Fear

The programmers of the scary shooter FEAR seem to have chosen Doom 3 as a great model, although almost everything seems to be done better. Among other things, the very oppressiveAtmosphere achieved through a graphic quality that is second to none. Lots of shader effects, wonderful bump mapping, very spectacular shadows, detailed textures, as well as nice-looking particle effects and much more, the player gets to face, which is why F.E.A.R. has already become mandatory for a good benchmark course. We use the multiplayer demo, which has an integrated benchmark function.

Quake 4

The well-known Quake series of ID software is always a highlight for a 'first person shooter' fan, as the games not only offer a high level of entertainment, but also come with a splendid graphic that often raises the bar a good deal higher. The current version, Quake 4, was programmed by Raven Software and uses a slightly further developed Doom 3 engine. Thus the graphics are on a high level, but cannot set new standards. Nonetheless, the game offerswith elaborate character textures and many shadow games, something for the eye. The selected time demo shows several firefights as well as spectacular shadow and color games. The last current variant of the game with patch 1.42 is used.

Anno 1701

Even if first-person shooters can usually shine with amazing graphics The German development team of the strategy game Anno 1701 insisted on equipping the successor of the legendary games Anno 1602 and Anno 1503 with a graphics engine that doesn’t need to hide from the competition. The eye is offered practically everything that is currently possible with modern hardware. Detailed textures, beautiful landscapes, nice shader effects such as the representation of the water including the breaking of the waves and much more make Anno 1701 a real oneEye candy. For this reason, the strategy game, as one of the few of its kind, is suitable for participating in a review, as the CPU has a lot to calculate in addition to the GPU.
