The trade press disagrees as to whether The Callisto Protocol is top or flop.



The trade press disagrees as to whether The Callisto Protocol is top or flop.

With The Callisto Protocol, a real horror shocker awaits us at the end of the year before we continue in 2023 with the Dead Space Remake. In fact, developer Glen Schofield, the creator of Callisto, also worked on the original Dead Space titles, which can hardly be overlooked due to the many parallels.

But can The Callisto Protocol keep up with Dead Space? The test embargo has fallen and the trade press was able to give their opinion on the horror shooter. And one thing becomes clear: the gap among journalists has rarely been so great.

The Callisto Protocol in the test: Big disappointment instead of a horror highlight

This is bad: In the test ratings, the gameplay in particular comes off badly, which is described as too monotonous. The fights should feel the same for hours and hardly show any development. Almost all testers also criticize that the melee is sluggish and the story is cliched.

There are also some audio errors in the German version. So there are problems with the German soundtrack and the lip synchronization. But these are bugs that could be fixed with a patch.

What do you think of these ratings? Are you going to play Callisto right away, wait for a sale or will you buy it directly?
