The best version of Control so far, that makes good use of the PlayStation 5's features and leaves plenty of hope and anticipation for a future sequel.

Control in the cloud is a solid way to experience one of 2019's best games, even if it's not the prettiest.

If Control was “weirdness, perfected” then Control: Ultimate Edition is weirdness, perfected and fully realized. Bundling all of its content in one place is a decent proposition as it was supported supremely well after its launch, but the technical advancements are what make this “ultimate edition” so ultimate. Its swift combat is finally stable enough to move at the pace it was supposed to originally move at. The immersive world is made even more immersive with its many visual upgrades. Control was so obviously built ahead of its time as these enhancements aren’t just surface-level touch-ups; they’re instrumental improvements that help this game become its fullest self and the best Director of the FBC it can possibly be.

On top of being a great game, with satisfying shooting mechanics and a universe that goes well beyond the main story, the next-gen version of Control Ultimate Edition is a visual showcase. It's a shame that early adopters of the original game can't benefit from this upgrade.

One on the best games ever played. You become one with the game while you play. I highly recommend this game. It intrigues and drag you in another dimension. You gotta play it to understand the meaning of my review
