Callisto’s protocol comparison video highlights the obviously problematic PC performance but overall good console experience

The first Callisto Protocol comparison videos have been released, comparing the game’s visuals and performance on different platforms.

As addressed earlier today, game performance is a mess with the survival horror game stuttering for various reasons. So how does the game work on consoles? YouTube Tech Channel ElAnalistaDebits tested the game on all platforms except the original Xbox One and also highlighted the game’s problematic state on PC. On consoles, it seems to be a different story as the title provides an overall good console experience. Interestingly enough, at the time of writing, there are no ray-traced reflections on the Xbox Series X, but a bug could potentially cause this to happen in the game’s quality mode as found on the PS5.

Meanwhile, the Xbox Series S version doesn’t take advantage of ray tracing and there appear to be global cutoff and lighting issues on Microsoft’s next-gen entry console. Fortunately, even on last-gen gaming hardware, the game is visually impressive. You can check out our new comparison videos below. One video compares the different PlayStation consoles to each other while the other shows a PC vs PS5 vs Xbox Series X comparison | S.

Despite its stunning screenshots and death scenes, The Callisto Protocol suffers from a lack of interesting content that would make the twelve-plus hour journey through Black Iron Prison worth twice, maybe even once. Both crafting and skill trees are simple in nature (both cost a significant amount of credits as players may only be able to fully upgrade two or three weapons in the full game) while combat encounters and combat in general feel very scripted. The horror elements stand out as the only reason to play the first horror game in Striking Distance, but you might want to find yourself thrown back into Black Iron Prison rather than seeing the journey through to the end.
