I’m so on the fence. I mean, I love Remedy. Max Payne 2 is in my top 5 games ever, and I really liked what they did in Alan Wake. Control seems very interesting, and if it’s as good in gameplay and story as Max Payne 2, well, I’m in. But I don’t know if it is and I’d rather have some reviews before I buy to make sure it’s the kind of game I’d enjoy.
And yet, it’s the kind of game that’s best savoured on launch (to avoid spoilers and such).
Well, I don’t trust previews, alas. They always tend to focus on the positive and they’re usually not as descriptive as I’d like (as to not spoil too much), so I’m left without the info I’d require to make any proper judgement that doesn’t rely on hype.
That said, I haven’t read most of the previews, only a couple of them. Maybe I’ll find what I need to know in one or more of the others. I’ll check them, I suppose.
