It's cool how the main character's name is Jacob (one of Isaac's sons in the Bible is named Jacob), a subtle middle finger to EA to show that this is supposed to be the legitimate Dead Space sequel.

some new info on the story and the overall mystery:
Q: speaking of the creatures, what are we actually fighting?
GS: the virus itself is ancient. It was extracted from this moon a long time ago. There's remnants of the ancient beasts, but scientists also took this virus, mess with it, and they tried to make men better.

Q: why is Jacob on Callisto?
GS: he gets boarded by another group that wants some of his cargo, and in that boarding they crash-land.

I wish there was a hard sci-fi game focused on small scale infighting in the shadow of greater space expansion projects.

Btw is your comment aimed at Dead Space 2 or 3?
I think that 2 is actually p fine. It did come from that period where it seemed like every other TPS adjacent game tried to emulate Uncharted (2), I think Uncharted was even explicitly invoked pre release. So it ended up being more bombastic, with a bit streamlined level design and encounters that felt like movie setpieces. Maybe it isn't where the team initially planned to take Dead Space, either as a game or plot-wise, but the end result was still a fine game.
