Control stars Jesse Faden as she wades through the paranormal oddities of the Oldest House while searching for her brother. It’s a mysterious yet engaging plot that’s unhurried in its progression. Gameplay consists of two parts: the first involves light exploration to soak in the unsettling atmosphere while reading left behind notes, listening to audio logs, and watching videos. The second is terrific gunplay supplemented by a catalog of psychic powers. You’ll enjoy unraveling the secrets of a teleporting rubber duck or a seemingly homicidal refrigerator but you’ll need to be patient with the sometimes annoying checkpoints and occasional difficulty spikes.
