Incredible, stylistically speaking. The excellent combat paired with the unparalleled destructive environments inches ever closer to the playable John Woo shootouts that Remedy has been (successfully) striving toward. The open-world element of the game is more of a hinderance than anything, and the upgrade/progression systems feel tacked on and unnecessary. Gets a tad too repetitive toward the end, and the conclusion to the story severely underwhelmed me; both endings; all three endings...

The weirdness is a bit irritatingly in-your-face at times but it's definitely the best superpowers game I can think of with awesome design and some killer boss battles plus ashtray maze is the coolest shit of all time. DLCs are more mixed and 505 are some greedy motherfuckers with this ultimate edition shit tbh

Decent atmosphere but chock-full of baffling, backward design choices imported from modern online chaff. It makes no sense to have timed repeating missions and a random, incremental modulation system in a linear single player action game. The story didn't offer enough to keep me interested, burying its lore in a mess of menus I couldn't be bothered to sift through.

Really enjoyed this but at a certain point I got annoyed by the difficulty spike and stopped having fun with it. What I played is extremely fun and cool though.

There's so much to like about this game, but I just hit a point where I couldn't progress and stopped playing.

Me explaining what I thought was going on is akin to Grandpa Simpson being paid to tell a cat and mouse what to do. Great fluid combat.

as someone who loves single-player games, I always appreciate what remedy tries to do, but their formula sometimes works against their games as seen both in quantum break and here in control. they are great in world-building and creating stories but stretching games to make them longer with unnecessary chapters and throwing whatever they can find at you towards the end game is frustrating rather than challenging.

It makes the building you're in a character of its own. Still think the Max Payne series is the best work Remedy has done, but this is second best as of 2019. Surreal with great shooting and abilities, an interesting story, and even a little scary. Hits a lot of different beats with grace.

Gameplay is nice but lack of checkpoints sucks.

Frustration concerning the "plot" is easily brushed aside, because who doesn't love to launch a living room set into an unsuspecting enemy's face?

Remedy continue to be the only studio making interesting and fresh third person shooters. While not quite the level of the Max Payne games (relative to release), the combat is more refreshing than Alan Wake and the level design and story are as off the wall as Remedy has gotten.

The combat mechanics are amazing and easily the strong suit of this game. The dialogue is pretty retardedly written and cringily acted, but the overall style and design carry the "story" for the first 70% or so. Which is when a) faux-open-world stuff is introduced, which brings a halt to the otherwise great pacing (disovering/clearing new areas), and b) the "story" becomes less convoluted, and less interesting. Which dampens your engagement with the game a tad or two.

Loved the premise, setting and aesthetic. Cool abilities and decent combat system are offset by high enemy numbers leading to some encounters feeling a little tedious.

Remedy solidifies its place as one of the best developers of pure third-person shooters. The shooting mechanics are top-notch, the powers add an enjoyable dimension to the gameplay. The incorporation of an SCP/X-files/Delta Green-inspired universe injects a delightful quirkiness, and provide a unique personality to an otherwise mundane office building setting. It's regrettable that the game didn't usethis backdrop to introduce more engaging adversaries and strange setpieces.
