Not so long ago our test games collection acquired a new member: the original first-person shooter, which is remarkable due to the fact that the player lives not the life of a brave space soldier or a magic hero, but of a … computer program. The image of this game definitely told on the environment created in it: there are no complex textures, while the geometry is pretty heavy, and the lighting effects are truly impressive.
The game is based on a pretty progressive LithTech Triton engine capable of using the abilities of the contemporary graphics accelerators to the full extent. GeForce FX 5700 Ultra demonstrates pretty good results similar to what we saw by RADEON 9600 XT/9500 PRO. As for the elder GeForce FX models lagging behind the leaders, they are not that far behind and the gap is not critical at all.
