A fun enough expansion, the new enemies it introduces are kind of annoying, the story does play on some very interesting loose threads from the base game and sets up some interesting promises for any future follow up in sequels, not much else to say, it's short, the story's interesting and the power ups you get from this are limited to just this DLC so it's alright all in all.

A genuinely good game that I had previously gotten shaken off of.
I had tried playing this blindly way back when it came out but revisited it more recently with the knowledge that it's a connector to the Alan Wake games, knowing what happens in the first Alan Wake does also ease what you need to know about the world to understand Control.
The story's good all the way through, but if you aren't ready for it it can also get confusing quickly and easy to dismiss as confusing for confusion's sake, but if you do follow it and read (there's a lot of reading side stuff, which is a shame), the story does stay refreshing and hard to guess until the very end.
Gameplay's equally fun and flowy with upgrades and powers staying consistently varied and interesting, though towards the very end a lot of enemies just seem to be highly damaging for no reason and that can sap some run off the game.

Overall, very fun package that serves as an interesting pillar to Remedy's world.

It's a decent game, all I knew about it going in was that it was a "God Of War Clone", which isn't a way I like to hear games be described but I can't argue that it does aim to give a similar combat loop and is inspired in the way it goes about it's mechanics
However while the combat is decent fun, everything else around it falls flat, the game is awfully optimized, both graphically and audio wise there's a lot of crunchy low bitrate audio files and dialogue, the game is overly early 2010s in the way it's so red all the time, it uses some cool colors during some segments, but never for long, the dialogue is really corny and uninteresting, it's just a bunch of back to back zingers to try to make characters lovable but they hardly land.
It's a shame, I wanted to like the game based off it's combat, but I just felt meh thinking about continuing it and this is by getting for free from PS+, I can't imagine many people being glad to have spent the AAA price the game usually asks.
