I hate respawning in games, but Control didn't trigger me. Unlike Wolf Dumblood, the respawning is more careful. If you're going from A to B and kill 3 groups and then die, you don't redo those early groups again (at least it never happened to me). Yes enemies do respawn in areas eventually, but you can kill them and they stay gone for a bit so you can explore. Actually there were a few times I went back to areas long after and expected respawns but never got them. Might not be perfect but I think the spawning is pretty good as it is.

Or maybe the respawning was never an issue because I enjoy the combat. Plus you can dash past groups anyway.

I hear you brother. Although it may sound funny in the context of gaming, it can make real-life difficult.

I'm going to continue to rant about this game.

The sniper rifle substitute in this game (a gun mod sort of) is annoying as hell. Many other games features a sniper rifle or a rifle which is powerful with the drawback of longer reload times. In this game the have inverted it. The gun must first charge up but after it has charged up the target window is gone making it almost useless. At least in other games you have the first shot available immediately.

The upgrade system is chaos. You have a limited amount of upgrades stored in some kind of menu grid. The game let you pick duplicates of the same upgrade and if you have too many you must manually delete existing ones in order to make room for new ones. These upgrades are scattered everywhere and can be a downgrade from what you currently have so why should you pick it up which the game does automatically. Wouldn't it be better if the game handled that automatically for the player instead. If an upgrade is better than the previous, just replace the upgrade. Basically you should have a palette with upgrades with the highest rating you have picked up. This is really stupid. This applies for all upgrades including personal and various weapon upgrades so you constantly have to administer these which is just annoying and give no additional gaming value.

For me the game is a bit difficult. I guess I'm getting old but I have previously been able to finish Quantum break and Alan Wake on the hardest difficulty. One way is to play on an easier difficulty which also let you get more acquainted with the controls. In Control that problem could be easily solved by changing the difficulty but no, there are no settings for this. It's just one difficulty which is a big departure from previous Remedy games. People are not the same, some have reflexes like a squirrels and other are like sloths that's just the way it is and this limits their target audience.

This game seems to be littered with bad design choices.

Really don’t get all the great graphics comments. It looks to me like it has the Vaseline smear post processing look.

They have updated the game in preparation for the DLC and also added DLSS to 2.0 support.

It is a significant improvement from before for me where I selected 1080p - "yes i know but it is the only way to get all raytracing effects" - upscaled to 4k and compared to the current iteration is night and day.

I gave up on this game a long time ago. It started off with an interesting premise but the controls and samey-same combat drove me away.

The games story is excellent. Dlss 2.0 looks fantastic... I think it looks better than native 1440. It's odd, native looks more blurry, dlss looks better and sharper and cleaner although shadows seem better in native.
