Dead Island is a first person horror action-adventure video game developed by Techland and published by Deep Silver for Microsoft Windows. It is centered on the challenge of survival on a zombie-infested open world island with a major emphasis on melee combat. It is rather good fun, for a short while, but it becomes repetitive.
A relatively easy experience for all hardware on test today, with even the modest HD6770 maintaining solid frame rates. The higher performance Core i7 3960X EE system holds a higher frame rate than the older Core i7 970 system, averaging around 180 fps compared against 172 fps.
