Dead Island is set in the fictional island of Banoi, located off the coast of Papua New Guinea. The main characters wake up in the Palms Resort hotel to find the island attacked by zombies and mysteriously, they are immune to whatever is making people into zombies. As they try to find and help other survivors, they must also find a way to escape the island as well.
At our selected settings we managed to get the game running at almost playable frame rates, although it was still stuttering on a fairly regular basis. We would need to lower the resolution to get this particular game engine performing better.
