Using an Nvidia RTX 4090 graphics card, I discovered that it couldn’t keep up with respectable framerates. Motive’s latest take on the legendary 2008 survival horror doesn’t run as smoothly as The Callisto Protocol, according to the tester. While Striking Distance Studios’ The Callisto Protocol disappointed in terms of sales and fans were concerned about performance concerns when it premiered, it still received some favourable reviews, though the response was probably not what director Glen Schofield had hoped for.
With the reappearance of Isaac Clarke, gamers can relive the Ishimura’s claustrophobic bodily terror. While the remake keeps what fans loved about the original, there are several differences between Dead Space and the remake. The most noticeable change is that Clarke now speaks, with Gunner Wright, who played the alien-stomping engineer in Dead Space 2 and 3.
However, as well-received as the remake has been thus far, a few concerns were identified during a benchmark test. According to DSO Gaming, even with the strength of the Nvidia RTX 4090 powering the PC, Dead Space struggles to reach 60fps. According to the research, as a result of this, The Callisto Protocol functions significantly more smoothly. A YouTube video displays the initial segment of the DS version, with the framerate barely exceeding 50fps. However, several commenters have stated that they were able to achieve excellent results using a 4090. Even the tester concedes that the game performs considerably better following the entrance sequence, however there are several situations where the framerate drops below 60 frames per second. One user also suggested that the CPU in the test hitting around 100 degrees Celsius could have been an issue, while another stated that a restart helped them gain frames.
In any event, this could be an isolated incident unrelated to the game’s overall performance. The Dead Space remake received mostly positive reviews when it was launched on January 27, with its modern take improving on the famous 2008 original and preserving much of what fans enjoyed while giving it a better experience for modern gamers.
With the impending Resident Evil 4 remake, as well as Bloober Team’s planned reinterpretation of Silent Hill 2, the horror resurgence continues, especially when it comes to remakes. There’s a lot to look forward to for fans of scary games, and Dead Space demonstrates that the genre is still alive and well.
