Dead Rising PC Performance Review

Graphical Options, Settings & Save Bug

Dead Rising PC Performance Review

Graphical Options and Settings

As a 10-year old game, it is expected that Dead Rising will run well on most modern PCs. Hardware has advanced a lot since this game was originally released and even the most demanding games from 2006 shouldn't present much of a challenge to modern gaming PC hardware. 

We can see below that Dead Rising supports 4K resolutions and features an unlocked framerate, as well as full MSAA options. Yes, the graphical options menu is a little bare, but the game still provides plenty of places to gain extra performance if you need it.  

After playing the game for a while I would advise that you simply max this game out at your desired resolution, as most modern PCs should be able to play this game at 60FPS or above with ease. A lot of performance can be gained by reducing the amount of Anti-Aliasing that you use if required, but this game is very easy to run on modern hardware.

Below is Dead Rising's Options menu, containing the ability to change your camera axis controls and providing the option to disable tutorials or vibrations if you are using a controller.

Save Bug

The only issue that we have found with Dead Rising is that when saving the game we were given the below error message, despite the fact that the game did save normally.

Players will need to check their save files to validate that their game is saving correctly but after hours of play, we have not run into any cases where saving actually failed. This is a bug that players should watch out for.
