Control: Ultimate Edition Review

    Control is set in the Alan Wake universe where you are going to the FBC that is overrun with a strange force. Here is our Control: Ultimate Edition Review.

    The game was developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by 505 Games, this edition was released on August 27, 2020, for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. This edition also includes all the DLC that was previously released.

    Straight at the beginning of the game, you know something is wrong, when you first go in and make a loop around the building, you notice something strange, you come back right where you started, and where you came from is blocked off. While this is a horror game trope most of the time, this time they use it to show you how weird it will get and to give you an early idea of what you will be dealing with. I gotta be honest, at the time of writing I don’t have the main game 100% finished yet and haven’t started the DLC yet, but I have played far enough to see its charm and how amazing the game actually is.

    I love the story, even though I have no clue what is going on sometimes. So basically the protagonist is at the building to find her brother Dylan, who got taken when they were kids, but when she goes inside and finds the body and gun of the Director, suddenly everyone in the building knows she is the new director, but I’m not really sure what that’s about yet, but it does give us access to everything and people will help us out inside. It’s a bit of a cat of mouse game because you will get sent to a clue only to find out it leads nowhere and get sent to the next person, but it does send you to some cool new places where you can get some powers.

    The powers in the game are incredible, but they have a good balance. It gives you a feeling for a few seconds of feeling invincible, but then the energy is gone and it’s back to shooting, which also feels just amazing. Everything works together just perfectly and unlike other games that give you power, it doesn’t feel like a weird transition between using the power and guns. Besides gunning and blasting down enemies, there is also plenty to do for the puzzle geeks. Some missions require some thinking by finding the right order to do things or the right patterns, which was a surprisingly fun thing to do and see in a game that’s heavy on its combat.

    Visually I guess the game is just okay, the powers and effects all look amazing, but the people do look a tiny bit dated, but not by much at all. The world looks amazing but is also a bit dark and gray, for me this was not that big of an issue, but when I was looking at Mike play, he couldn’t play it for more than an hour at a time due to him just getting sleepy with darker colored games, so if you also have an issue with that, make sure to take regular breaks.
