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.

‎Control Ultimate Edition in new generation is almost another game: being able to play 1440p and 60fps in a game that is technically a blast is a real marvel. Added to this is how you take advantage of DualSense features, new console SSDs, and more PS5 features, making immersion brutal. Of course, we must not forget the excellent gameplay and background that already had Base Control, even if it had its obvious shortcomings.‎

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 of the best games of the previous generation better than ever. The two graphics options are worth it, and the expansions will delight those who enjoyed the base game. Remedy is in control.

On PS5, Control is sublime. The atmosphere is almost palpable, helped by sound direction that keeps you on edge all the time.

Control: Ultimate Edition on PlayStation 5 is a real treat. Gone are all the technical issues that plagued the game on the old generation of consoles: loading times are lightning fast, textures load instantly, and the game runs smooth as silk. Ray Tracing is also an impressive addition to what is already one of the best games of recent times.

Control: Ultimate Edition represents a great achievement. Between its already impressive gameplay and a robust number of performance upgrades, Control both looks and feels like a next-gen title. Sussing out secrets and uncovering the myriad mysteries and suspicious happenings tied to one of gaming's most unique and interesting places are better than ever. For anyone who had been holding off on playing the game, there's never been a better time to give it a shot.
