Control review
by yamaci

2019 compared to 2018 was a weak year in the case of big AAA titles. So Game Awards awarded Sekiro (i didnt play that game but I'm sure it is spectacular too), and IGN awarded this game, Control, as GOTY.

From outside, I just thought it was mainly about the new so called ray trace tech and some fancy graphics with supbar story... Boy, was I wrong. Game had great story telling mechanics, alongside with a great story. All fantasy fiction theories are somehow fitted in wonderfully in a believable way that makes you believe they are real! The scientist Darling clips, all the letters and multimedia found, I consumed them with a great interest. I was like, "more, give me more Darling! More scientific letters about cool unnatural devices, such as human eating refrigator!".

And game was accompanied with great graphics. I dont have a ray tracing gpu so i didnt get to play with the prievelege of ray tracing but still, I found the non ray traced graphics still gorgeous. Besides graphics, the game's engine was spectacular, the physics and all. Everything almost everything can be interacted with which makes the game even more fun.

All an all, I understood why IGN chose this as a GOTY. I would say this game surely deserved a big GOTY award!

I greatly look forward for the second game, if there will be one.

Great cinematica, the gameplay is average
fuck this
As a huge art-house film fan, I imagine this is probably how my friends feel when I strongly encourage them to watch a film that shook me to my core that they can acknowledge it's made very well, but completely does not affect them. Control, on paper, is a great stylistic and thematic game. But the dull venues, repetitive combat and frustrating side missions through me off of it. The good news is I played it for Free thanks to PS+ and maybe someday I'll come back to it.
Definitely worth a go. Was glad it came onto gamepass as it was on my 'to play' list for a while. Really interesting setting and execution. Combat is decent but very frustrating at times. I can see why they added 'assist' mode and without it I probably would have rage quit long before the end.
Really enjoyed the narrative and MC though and the Ashtray maze was definitely a highlight.
Tried this because it was on PSN and I only had 15 days to beat it. I played it every day to the point where the world started popping up in my dreams. Intuitive gameplay, haunting visual, story remains cohesive while dealing with supernatural elements. Really great.

Probably one of my favourite game ever. Everything is so cerebral and complicated and then they hit you in the face with the Ashtray Maze. Masterpiece
Stunning in every regard
so dont expect a full package. Just expect a an arena shooter inside csp confiment facility and u will have a lot of fun. Some things are bad ( scenario, the fake promise of ending etc etc ....) but what is here it at least to do once. the environment will blew your mind at leats 10 time. The ambiance sound graphism acting all is top notch. (except scenario andf fighting). The only flaw of this game is maybe a the fighting system that can t be push too hard and it s kinda borring at some point but except that the scenario ( it sell really well but doesnt give any resolution ) and the last mission being underwelming the package is great. Remedy like always will play with you and that feeling is great and they totally know when to pull it or not. if it s your first remedy game go !!!!
