Review: Playability (by Bartleby)

So, for a very long time we have wanted to take a walk around a tropical island, admire the local attractions and... get a lot of thrills from the undead swarming around. All these feelings were experienced by many users on the eve of the release of the highly anticipated long-term construction Dead Island. Dead Island takes place on the fictional tropical island of Banoi, which is located in Papua New Guinea and is a destination with many tourists from all over the world. For unknown reasons, there is a zombie invasion on the island, and we, as a miracle survivor who has some immunity to the effects of zombies, have to figure out what happened and how to get out of this hell...

Before starting the game, we highly recommend watching the introductory video in order to get acquainted with all the characters ahead of time and see the plot of the developing events. In total, we have four characters to choose from: Logan - a specialist in throwing weapons, a former American football player; Purna is a former officer of the Sydney Police Department, and in gameplay a small arms specialist; Xiang Mei is an employee of the Royal Palm resort, as expected in the story, a master of bladed weapons; Sam B is a heavily built and unflappable rapper who has been cast in the role of a blunt weapons specialist.

The game world is open with a non-linear plot. We can complete individual tasks and receive money and experience points for them. There are very few small arms in the game and you mostly have to use hand-to-hand combat. But even here, not everything is so simple - objects that serve as improvised weapons have the peculiarity of being destroyed very quickly... In general, Dead Island made a very pleasant impression, being head and shoulders above its “brother in the shop” in the person of Call of Juarez, : The Poster. But still, the Poles should not relax, because they are still quite far from the title of AAA game makers...

Review: Graphics

It was planned that Dead Island would use the Chrome Engine version 4 game engine, which at that time was the latest. After the official announcement of the game, it became known that the game will use Chrome Engine 5. The graphics renderer is the main part of the Chrome Engine, responsible for displaying all game graphics. The physics engine integrated into Chrome is based on the open source Open Dynamics Engine, a freely distributed software packaged as a plug-in library.

Supports solid state physics, basic physics with predefined interaction paths. Supports player actions with various objects “lying” on the level, partially destructible environment, rag doll physics for simulating death, vehicle physics, fabric physics for clothing animation, sound effects for interacting with objects, level of physics detail (allows you to customize the degree of interaction with objects , from minimal to most complex, to save resources).

DeadIslandGame_2011_09_09_17_32_17_813

Dead Island uses the standard version of Chrome Engine 5, without any special improvements or modifications. The only difference was a specially developed facial damage system. The essence of this system is that the character’s face is modeled “layer-by-layer”, that is, the facial bones are first modeled, which are then “covered” with facial muscles, and then with skin. The player can injure computer opponents in real time, while the deformation of the face and skull will occur dynamically, in real time.

Another feature of the engine is the dynamic day change system - thanks to it, the day and night cycles change dynamically and regardless of game scripts. A weather effects system has also been introduced into the game. Next, we can directly familiarize ourselves with the game’s resource intensity.


 

Review: Resource-intensive game

All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality using MSI Afterburner. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. The minimum and average frame size is taken as the performance indicator. Below is the configuration of our test systems.

Less productive video cards up to the level of GeForce GTS 450 and Radeon HD 4870 are tested on the basis of Core 2 Quad Q9550 and Phenom II X4 940 BE processors, depending on the resource intensity of the game, and more productive ones are based on more powerful solutions. Overclocked versions of video cards presented by sponsors were equal to conventional analogues by reducing their clock speeds.

DeadIslandGame_2011_09_09_13_35_57_321

Our video cards were tested at a resolution of 1920x1080 with maximum graphics quality settings. NVIDIA 3D Vision technology has not been tested due to the lack of official support in drivers, as well as poor compatibility. AMD Eyefinity was tested at a resolution of 5760x1080. The efficiency of Cross Fire and SLI is zero and does not increase performance.

Testing at maximum quality settings 1920x1080

di_1920

With maximum settings for all graphic menu items, even the Radeon HD 3870 or GeForce 9800 GT will show acceptable performance. As we see, the performance picture is completely similar to what we saw in the recent review of Call of Juarez: The Cartel...

AMD Eyefinity Technology Testing

DeadIslandGame_2011_09_12_23_53_40_895

All our video cards were tested at maximum quality settings on three Full HD monitors combined thanks to Eyefinity technology in a resolution of 5760x1080. As we see, the panorama, thanks to the use of this technology, is completely comprehensive...

Testing at maximum quality settings using AMD Eyefinity technology on three monitors at a resolution of 5760x1080

d_5760

For comfortable playability at maximum quality settings with a resolution of 5760x1080, the user will need to have video cards of the Radeon HD 5770 level, and for more or less comfortable FPS a Radeon HD 6850 and higher will be required.

CPU dependency testing

DeadIslandGame_2011_09_09_13_36_02_000

We tested processor dependence on 10 models of basic configurations, which are the most relevant today. The test was carried out in those places where the value of video cards for the game is minimal and its load was less than 99%, this time at a resolution of 1024x768 with maximum quality settings.

Testing at maximum quality settings 1024x768

di_proz

As we can see, all tested CPU models coped with Dead Island without problems, so hunting zombies on an open island will not be difficult even for owners of budget dual-core models.

 

 

igrab_4_-_Dead_Island

Dead Island is a real gift for fans of zombie shooters. This game will delight players with crowds of live meat and an open game world.

Graph_35_-_Dead_Island

The graphics in the game are tailored for multi-platform use and you can’t expect anything outstanding in terms of technology from Dead Island.

Opt_45_-_Dead_Island

The optimization is not bad, but these are again echoes of the notorious cross-platform. For maximum settings on a Full HD monitor, almost any gaming system will be enough.

 



 

We express our gratitude to all the manufacturing companies that were able to provide test equipment for our GPU tests and we hope that in the future their number will increase significantly!
