A soundscape that keeps you constantly on-edge, all taut strings and environmental clanks and hisses designed to ramp up the tension until... boo! This is audio design at its best, fitting the sci-fi horror setting to a tee.
Absolutely stunning. In terms of raw cinematic flair and presentation, The Callisto Protocol is exemplary stuff. It’s just a shame that the frame rate can occasionally stutter when playing with the default resolution mode.
Tight, chewy shooting mechanics and a solid melee system make for an enjoyable dose of survival horror, despite Jacob’s deliberately slow movement and some nasty difficulty spikes.
While it lasts, The Callisto Protocol is a hell of a ride, but there’s practically no replay value. This is a game that could have definitely used a New Game+ option. I guess we’ll just have to wait for the Season Pass.
A pretty good list with a decent spread of objectives. You might struggle to beat the game at Maximum Security difficulty, though, and you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled for collectible audio logs and secrets.
