    Good story
    Great Gore


    Cons:
    Settings need more options for brightness calibration, headset options.
    It was definitely not short but I wish it was longer.

    Wish there was a harder difficulty. Maximum is hard don’t get me wrong but an insane difficulty would be fun. Only issue with combat is you shouldn’t be allowed to just hold dodge. It should be time related. It would make it a lot harder.

    I definitely recommend and hope a sequel comes out.

If Dead Space is what you are looking for, that's coming out next month from EA. The overall atmosphere of this game, the main character, the general enemies, and even the setting to an extent, do bring me back to fond memories of freaking out on the USG Ishimura in 2008 or so. However, the combat plays completely differently, and once you get it down is perhaps even more satisfying than those. The Callisto Protocol is a game from the Dark Souls era, and is purposely very punishing at some points. On PS4, the load times are bad, about 55-60 seconds to reload after a death. It's a beautiful looking game, even on the PS4, and I encountered only a few glaring performance issues (2-3 full crashes though) across 12ish hours. Long story short: if your expectations are anchored to Dead Space, you may or may not enjoy this. I was drawn to this because DS1 is among my favorites of all-time, but I played nearly all of TCP through in one snowy day because it was a ton of fun as its own thing. The story and world are also super intriguing, and I'm intrigued by the possibility of strong DLC next year. My guess is that in a couple years, the sequel breaks through commercially (and perhaps especially critically) similarly to Assassin's Creed II building on the first AC. Expand

It's more of a spiritual sequel. The game has many similarities, but also a good number of differences. "Callisto" doesn't feature dismemberment weapons or include Zero-G sequences. But it is very gory, difficult and expands on melee combat. Graphically, the game is impressive, even on the aging PS4. If you're a fan of "The Last of Us" or "Resident Evil 2" remake, you'll probably enjoy the ride. While the game is NOT as good as those classics, it's always entertaining despite familiar tropes. I would rate "The Callisto Protocol" with a 7.5 out of 10. Expand

    Disappointed that the game is so buggy. I loved Dead Space when I played it on PS3 so thought I would give this a try. Not a fan of the combatDisappointed that the game is so buggy. I loved Dead Space when I played it on PS3 so thought I would give this a try. Not a fan of the combat although I do like the doge when it works. I feel for 8 chapters there are not enough credits to upgrade anything. My biggest pet peeve with this game is the constant freezing and shutting down.

    The greatest horror survival games for me were Dead Space and Alien Isolation but this game needs a lot of work to reach that level. I like the characters but the story is a little weak. So to the Devs who worked on this, I hope you can improve it if you are considering a part two.

    Callisto Proctologue is a shame on every level... The gameplay is a joke, the level design is a joke (basically the maps are just one corridor...) The laziness of this game is incredible.... DO NOT BUY IT...
