Control is an action adventure title developed by Remedy Entertainment.
The game pits you as a female whom apparently is the new Executive of the Federal Bureau of Control. She has been drawn to this Bureau through a telepathic calling from a supernatural being.
Her quest is to track down the whereabouts of her brother Dylan and seems to suspect that the Bureau may know something.
However, upon arriving at the Bureau she quickly finds and discovers that not all things are as they seem and something is definitely wrong with the place.
Though the combat is not too bad the gameplay can be rather boring and basic with not much of a skill set or an in-depth way of improving your abilities.
Also some abilities are hidden behind side quests and thus you could potentially miss out on those if you do not opt to complete the said quests.
There are quite a few optional collectibles and side quests to complete, a lot of which are hidden behind files and thus are missable.
The different collectibles can be quite useful for discovering more about the place and the events that occur.
We unfortunately could not finish this one as we found it to be rather boring and slow.
The enemies always seem to be the same and the whole game seems to take place in one single building, so it can get all to repetitive and all too quickly.
