Control: Ultimate Edition
Top Critic Average
If you missed this game on the previous consoles, now is the perfect time to buy as it contains everything plus RTX and more importantly, it is a fantastic story that draws you in and drives you on. If you are a fan of The X-Files or similar genre shows, material… I have no doubt you will enjoy this.
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 is the definitive version of Remedy's adventure. Bringing together the worlds Remedy has created under one roof and looking stunning while doing so, Remedy has done a fantastic job of upgrading and improving the experience in meaningful, additive ways, such as the use of the DualSense controller and Ray-Tracing. There isn't a universe more worth exploring and losing yourself in than the one in Control.
Are you ready to take CONTROL? Remedy knocked it out of the park and then came back for more with some great additional contact in the Ultimate Edition of their award-winning game. Yes, friends, the hype is real – this is not a game you want to miss!
Despite being on a few platforms now, Control: Ultimate Edition on the PlayStation 5 is by far the definitive version of the game. The 60fps mode is super smooth, the 30fps mode has realistic ray tracing, and all modes fully support the DualSense controller, immersing you within the action and making you truly feel like you’re Jesse. Although not technically adding anything new over the base game (plus DLC via the Season Pass), it was a joy to play through the game once more, exploring the world Remedy Entertainment created and discovering the secrets hidden within the new DLC floors. Whether you’ve played it before or not, Control: Ultimate Edition is a game which everyone should play on the new-gen consoles, this fantastic experience has just got even better!
I loved it on PS4, and I love it even more now. With all of my technical issues removed, this is the ultimate way to play one of 2019's most exhilarating, and weirdest games.
The PlayStation 5 version of Control Ultimate Edition is one of the best, if not the best game available for the system so far. The game is finally available on a system with enough horsepower to handle its visuals, physics, and wacky gameplay. That, coupled with the near nonexistent loading times, multiple graphical presets, and small, but still welcome implementations of the DualSense’s features, makes this version the best and mandatory way to play Remedy’s masterpiece.
Control Ultimate Edition is a title that you absolutely must retrieve, if you have not had the opportunity to play it on old-gen consoles yet. One of the best productions, on an artistic, technical and narrative level, by Remedy Entertainment. It boasts a well-scripted plot, full of twists; a gameplay that can truly amaze, which offers the players multiple opportunities thanks to the combination of Jesse's different powers. If, on the other hand, you have already played the Xbox One or PS4 version, it is certainly worth giving it a thought, especially considering it being free in the February PS5 PlayStation Plus list, and the bargain price that practically amounts to the previous retail price of the DLCs alone.

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.
