2019’s Control is one of our favourite games of the last generation. From Remedy, the studio that brought us Alan Wake, it puts us into the shoes of Jesse Faden. She’s the director of the Federal Bureau of Control, a government department that deals with the supernatural. Something has invaded the bureau however, and only Jesse has the power to stop it.
Thanks to Jesse’s incredible powers, taking control of her as you make your way through Control‘s twisting story is exhilarating. Add to that impressive visuals and a whole load of explosions, and you’ve got one heck of a thrill ride from start to finish. It’s a shame that the included version isn’t the Ultimate Edition, which includes the game’s expansions as well as next-gen support. But with even just the base game included, Control is one of the best games on Xbox Game Pass, without a shadow of a doubt.
