    Control marks a new and glorious beginning for Remedy and hopefully there are more wonderful things to come. Despite a few pacing issues here and there and some exhausting late-game shoot-outs, I gladly award the game a perfect score. Am I biased doing so as a Finn myself? Maybe, but Control is a game that today's dull, unimaginative and opportunistic gaming climate doesn't deserve, but I’m happy it exists.

    Control is truly unforgettable with loads of ways to play, terrific acting, lots to explore, satisfying gunplay and abilities, and a spectacular world and story to experience. I can't wait to dive back in with the couple of DLC packs already planned.

    It will not have the impact Alan Wake had in his day, but Control may be Remedy's best game in recent years. It shows the effort of the team to improve the great weakness that had been dragging in their games, the gameplay itself. Storytelling and the graphics are really amazing.

    Control is another absolute hit from Remedy, one that delivers from both a gameplay and narrative perspective. One of the generation’s most intriguing game worlds and almost perfect pacing, the only thing that holds Control back from being an all-time classic is its unfortunate and frustrating technical issues.

    Control is definitely Remedy's best game since Alan Wake. The sheer variety in the gameplay and fantastic presentation go a long way in making this an enjoyable experience.

    Control is a mysterious, exciting and intense action game that lets you hurl office equipment at twisted enemies while gliding through the air like the harbinger of death.

    This game is not as good as perhaps expected. Level design is poor, the main character is not very interesting and the Metroidvania-way of exploring is maybe too difficult. However, the game gets a bit better in the end.

Control jednak zainteresował mnie od pierwszego momentu i wciagnął tak , że przeszedłem grę po minimum dwa razy na każdej platformie na jakiej wyszedł (czyli wiele razy wpliczajac PS4, xos, XSX, PC-Steam-Epic-GOG-GFN. Trzy miesiace tylko tej gry plus wiele godzin z dodatkami.
    Interesujaca tajemnicza historia jak w Archiwum x, Fringe czy Debris. Do tego świetne efekty cząsteczkowe i bardzo satysfakcjonująca walka. Na minus powtarzalni przeciwnicy i bossowie. Ale to nic . Drugi być moze minus to błedy na start gry i dosyć długo kazali czekać na poprawki ale nic tak uciażliwego jak w CP2077 czy Outriders.
    To teraz moja ulubiona gra.

    Nice game with superb psychic visuals. For me the plot was a bit messy, left lots of questions.

I was a massive fan of Alan Wake and enjoyed Quantum Break but I could never really decide if I was enjoying this game or not before it abruptly ended.

    The story is gibberish for the most part. Characters are poorly written and the dialogue was terrible.
    Some of the game mechanics were awful which were exasperated in the really poor boss fights.
    Graphically it was average on XBOX X, although the frame rate and performance for me seemed better than many have experienced.

    Despite that, I did play it through to the end and enjoyed some of the later powers that you were given, however, again as it was towards the end of the game before you achieved many of them, the time using them was ultimately quite brief.

    There are moments of genius scattered throughout such as the ashtray maze but my overall feeling was probably disappointment or apathy.

    Probably a 6.5 but as I expected so much more, I am dropping it a little.

Но свинское отношение разработчиков и издателя заставило изменить мнение. Задержки с длс, уникальный контент для плойки - владельцев иксбокса вертели на половом органе. А под конец поколения и вовсе всех игроков кинули с платным улучшением игры. Expand
