Review: Control

Roger and Christian sit down to review the game Control.

The Tip and the Top:

  • Excellent third-person mechanics that combine a suite of supernatural powers with tight third-person shooting in a way that works extremely well without screwing up balancing

  • A narrative full of tantalizing mysteries to unravel

  • A uniquely sinister and vile tone permeates throughout the experience while still leaving room for moments of levity

  • Level design that takes cues from older-school shooters and metroidvanias to create unique environments that flow well in gameplay

  • A steady progression curve that leaves you feeling like an infinitely powerful goddess by the end

The Flip and the Flop:

  • Some story threads are left without resolution

  • While infrequent, the occasional backtracking can still feel tiresome

Final Grade: A-
