Dead Rising PC Performance Review
Published: 14th September 2016 | Source: Dead Rising | Price: |
When Dead Rising was announced for PC a lot of gamers were expecting a quick and easy cash-in from Capcom, especially given the reception of Dead Rising 3 on the PC. Thankfully this is not the case with Dead Rising, supporting PC controls and offering a fully unlocked framerate.
As a 10-year-old game, Dead Rising is not much of a looker by today's standard, though it does offer a lot when it comes to gameplay. The PC controls are tight and the game as a whole suffers from no major issues, apart from the "failed to save game data" bug.
Performance wise, this game runs like a dream on modern systems. Even relatively modest hardware like the R9 380 and GTX 960 can easily achieve framerates of over 70FPS and even 100FPS if you decide to turn off MSAA. The game does run a lot better on Nvidia hardware, but it does still offer respectable performance on AMD GPUs, most gamers should be able to run this game at over 60FPS with minimal effort.
At the price of £15.99 Dead Rising offers everything that we should expect from a PC port, robust controls, an unlocked framerate and no major bugs or graphical issues at launch. If you are looking to replay this classic zombie game the quality of the PC version shouldn't be getting in the way of your purchase.
Dead Rising has finally come to PC and it is certainly one of the best PC versions that we have played this year. Yes, the game is old, but it comes in at an attractive price, fun gameplay, and offers very little that is worth complaining about.
