Using the N = 4 topological reformulation of N = 2 strings, we compute all loop partition function for special compactifications of N = 2 strings as a function of target moduli. We also reinterpret N = 4 topological amplitudes in terms of slightly modified N = 2 topological amplitudes. We present some preliminary evidence for the conjecture that N = 2 strings is the large N limit of Holomorphic Yang-Mills in four dimensions.
