Mount and Blade is a swordplay RPG that will be released shortly for the PC. The makers of the game have released a demo that contains the full game but requires a code to unlock it. The game played spectacularly on the 9800GX2 with frame rates above 100 fps throughout the game. The overland map is not graphically intensive, but the towns and battle scenes include such effects as HDR on sunlight beautiful vegetation and more.

Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare is the included game in the bundle of the card. This game is the latest in a yearly release cycle of COD games that sell very well. The game plays almost perfectly throughout with max features on and anti-aliasing enabled on the XFX 9800GX2 Black Edition. As the 9800GX2 is two 9800GTX class cards in SLI mode on a single PCB, the game has no slowdowns or problems being used. Visually the game looks great as well.

UEFA EURO 2008 is the latest soccer game from the makers of the ubiquitous Madden football series. Europeans call soccer football as soccer uses mostly the feet in controlling the ball, while football as you know involves passing and carrying the ball. The demo was recently released and is on Gamers Hell which has the latest game demos. The demo plays well on the 9800GX2 with 1920x1200 4x AA and 16x AF not giving it a sweat. As the graphics are centered on small player characters this game plays near totally playable.
