Poor Jacob Lee can’t catch a break. First, he has to deal with people always asking him if he’s still making movies with Kevin Smith, then his space truck explodes on top of an evil space prison and he gets thrown into the space prison for some not-so-obvious crime, possibly littering. Then all of the prisoners get infected with the zombie virus and become more interested in beating Jacob Lee to death than they are in trading cigarettes with fists, and if all that isn’t enough to put a bow on Jacob Lee’s dirty day, then he has to spend the next 10 hours being the hero of a horrible video game. But get real, Jacob Lee, you’re hardly Silent Hill material, you’ll need to learn more than two facial expressions besides Stupid Confused and Stupid Neutral. So, Callisto Protocol, the unabashed clone of Dead Space by what was retrospectively revealed to be less competent than the creators of Dead Space. So you should know what to expect from the core gameplay – third-person crawling through dark metal corridors, frequent ambushes by screaming mobile piles of expired deli meat, and a multitude of NPC support characters whose plans always seem to boil down to being forced. Jacob has to fight his way through nine levels of the murder vault while they stay in an air-conditioned computer room making sure the screensaver doesn’t come up.
