Control: Warp Reality and take back Control

I had heard of this game and was interested in playing it, though I didn’t know much about it. You play as a young woman named Jessie who has gone to the Bureau of Control, a government agency that investigates paranormal items and events, to find out information about her missing brother. Once inside the building Jessie finds things out of hand, something has gotten loose in the building and she must find a way to retake Control. This game also takes place in the same universe as Remedy Entertainment’s other game, Alan Wake.

Sexuality: 0 out of 5: It doesn’t really come up at all. No one’s relationship does. If someone was supposed to be gay or straight, it never came up.

I didn’t realize it until I went through my screenshots after, but almost every shot I got of Jesse, her eyes are closed.

Gender: 1 out of 5: The main character is a woman but it’s not the focus of the story. If she had been a man the story would not have changed at all.

Race: 1 out of 5: The characters are very diverse but once again, it’s not the focus of the game.

I just had to include a pic of this guy, LOOK AT THOSE EYES!

Anachronism: 1 out of 5: Some of the items Jessie acquires are clearly out of this world but this is explained in game. It takes place in the here and now.

Overall: 3 out of 20: I know it’s a short review but I was pleasantly surprised with this game. I knew you play a female protagonist going in so I expected it to be somewhat woke, but it really wasn’t. Jessie skills and abilities make sense within the context of the game.
