I cant control my boredom and angers.....
Control is a game that i go in slightly blind. I know it was made by Remedy (Alan Wake, Max Payne 1 & 2) Which i truly adore with its psychological horror element in both game. I also know Control have been used for benchmark, mostly to test RTX or its particle effect.
Im sadly to say that Im have very negative experience in this game. It werent for anime that Im watching at same time, i would be bored to death about this game. The strength of this game is definitely on artstyle. The gameplay while fun when you get at beginning, it become to repetitive from beginning until the end of the game. Go certain places, trigger enemy spawn, kill all enemy, proceed forward, some cutscenes, repeat. There is no variety in term or set pieces (meaning an event happened in game).
You have your main power of telekinesis where you can pick up stuff and throw to enemy. You also have guns, which can transform into multiple different type. My problem despite the variety is there, there arent much way for you to customize or modify your skill. Most of them are just basic "do more damage, cost less resource, faster projectile etc". All enemy encounter is pretty much just hide behind cover, then throw stones or shoot enemy then reload. There is some boss encounter, but you still repeat the same freaking things.
Personally, I hate this. Kinda weird because it is a good game but the gameplay & pacing are just too boring. It have potential of to be masterpiece but I have played many brain dead more fun games than this. I didnt even bother thinking about completing 100% achievement for this game.
