Control

Good morning gang,

capsule_616x353.jpg


So, last month PlayStation Plus members had the chance to download CONTROL for free. Up until last month I don't remember seeing anything about it, however in January Inside Gaming said it was a must have game because it was brilliant. So I added it to my account but while at the time I was still playing Cyberpunk and Bugsnax I didn't install it, until now.

My god, what a beautiful looking game and just so we're all aware I play racing games, COD back in the day and RPG's (and I use that term losely Fallout and Cyberpunk exclusively ha ha ha). I like watching someone play Res Evil but Im a shithouse with games like that, I panic. It's probably some psychological throwback to watching my Dad play DOOM on the PC when I was a wee boy.

Anyway I digress, CONTROL is a brilliant game in my eyes, it looks great (ray tracing on PS5 👌), the gameplay is great, the story is complex but interesting and it doesn't spoon feed you the answers. Intel scattered through the environment fill in the blanks but even they have redacted elements. You're thrust into the game, not having a clue what's going on but the game losely holds your hand to get you through the first parts to get you involved.


I'm really enjoying it so far and I can't get over how good it looks on the PS5. Has anybody else played this?

I refunded it after 30 minutes play time, totally not for me, felt extremely indie to me and the movement was horrible, looked decent with the ray tracing and what not though.

I saw you play this the other day @BIFCAIDS . I've also added it to my Library from PS+ but havn't installed it yet. It's caught my eye couple times and havn't got round to it yet. Might install it soon, does look impresive like.

You see it's not something I'd normally play but I'm hooked. Different courses for different horses isn't it though.

I've downloaded it today and had a go for about an hour or so. I'm actually getting into it. It creeps me out a bit with the noises, It is something different and there's quit a bit of documents to pick up, a bit like of Last of Us.

Yeah the noises creep me out and then I build the tension myself. I'll knock something over and be like "who is making that noise, oh it's me"

Got the Ultimate Edition from cdkeys for peanuts have heard some good feedback from some mates of mine. I was forwarded a recording of it in 4K on a 3080 card and it did look very impressive.

Not tried it myself yet though. Hopefully the movement controls will be OK - but as per @Greeny. - if its poor, I doubt I'll see it through. Similar with the recent Hitman 2 game - everything felt like you were playing it with your hands in vats of treacle. So sluggish for when you needed snap decisions and quick responses. They really need to take a leaf out of Rebellion's book and try out Sniper Elite 4. They've got the controls for that pretty much bang on.

I've just finished playing through this and really enjoyed it. Especially towards the end as I beefed up Jesse's paranatural abilities (such as being able to grab and throw 3 large items at once). It's very satisfying lobbing 3 forklift trucks at a group of the Hiss. 🤣

I wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. The Ashtray Maze section was pretty cool. :cool:

So... I enjoyed it so much on GamePass that I decided to buy the enhanced / ultimate version for the Series X (along with the two additional DLC's) and actually 100% completed it the other night. I haven't done that for a long time. :cool:
