Our moderator @Stevenxowens792 got and I am quoting what he said:

Not much time as I just got home, completed 2 mission on dead island and on 752/900 get from 60-90fps on the highest details in the game menu

Dude.. Dead Island rocks so far. I need to slow down enough to create vids and screenshots. Its beautiful (although no crysis).

So stand by

1366x768 native rez. I took some fraps video and frankly I don't like how it came out. The video makes the game look slow when in fact its beyond smooth. So I may just post some screenshots or something. Rest assured, even with 2 month old display drivers, it runs fine. Best wishes, StevenX

Hey all, yes this game is everything I dreamed of and more. Love it. Best description I have heard is fallout 3 with zombies and I would kinda agree. Not as polished or as in depth as Fallout but really fun to play. Anyway there is some nice tweaks out there if you need them. I had a lot of screen tearing and a little stuttering at first but I disabled saso and turned on V-sync and good to go. Also there is a tweak to the controls, stevenx I read your review and saw that you weren't to happy with controls. I used the tweak and found that it tightened them up a bit but hey it could just be me so try it out and let me know what you think. Also the field of view tweak is really nice, highly recommend it.

calling all modders let's mod dead island incl fix fov/blur/bloom/mouse/fps/+ more - Steam Users' Forums

Anyway back to slaying some zombies, cheers!

May I ask what video driver version your using? On my m14x its dissapointing. I have to bring down the res to 1024x768 and had to download a 3rd party app to tweak the video settings. Now im getting maybe 20-30fps outdoors and 55+ indoors.
