They want to take risks other studios won’t take. Ambition is by the bucket load at Remedy, which is why they are the future of action games.

The Max Payne series is among my all-time favourites in gaming. A result of the era I miss so dearly. However, Remedy truly are a company that have continued to innovate throughout the many years they've been working in the gaming industry. Another great article, here.

Agreed! Although the culmination of their thought process with episodic narrative was Quantum Break, Control is a streamlined product. Love these guys and girls.

Did not enjoy quantum break ... max payne 2 had way better writing

To me, Remedy peaked with Max Payne and Alan Wake. Quantum Break and Control were not as good as the other two franchises.

FTLmaster850d ago

100% agreed, Control is just a mere shadow of Alan Wake imho.

jBlakeeper851d ago

Control is amazing IMO. It’s flashy, unique and the powers are awesome.

ChristianReggieWait851d ago

💯 It's showing a matured Remedy for me. Pure, concentrated deep narrative action at its finest!

Channel-Live851d ago

it's good but wonder if these guys can make a game that's not grainy.

ChristianReggieWait850d ago

Can't beat a bit of film grain!

I liked it alot and didn't expect to. It's one if those 8/10 games, star wars fallen order and other flawed yet great games fit into. Excited for control 2.

Hmm for me if take these type of games over games like the last of us and halo. Just more fresh and unique

The story is unique, though the powers/gameplay when I first saw them reminded me of PSi-Ops -

The old Remedy was great I'll just say that. When I play control it feels like a mediocre game

FortWaba851d ago

You seem like such a nice person. I wish the best for you, friend!

No way! That’s a shame.

I think I’m about half way through and genuinely loving it, I’ve got my eyes on the platinum and everything! For now at least, there isn’t a single element I’m not really enjoying.

The combat/abilities, the environments, the characters, the story, the general style, the sense of mystery and intrigue. It’s ticking all my boxes.

I’d toyed with the idea of getting it before but only now am playing it with psplus on the ps5. I never expected to be such a fan 😂

Rocketisleague850d ago

I enjoyed if, not as tight as some shooters but pretty unique and some good ideas story wise and gameplay wise.

autobotdan851d ago

Just as long as they don't make games with cheap final/end bosses like they did in Quantum Break, Remedy have made some great games. I didn't like the over cheap final boss of Quantum Break it took me a long time to beat it. But all their games have been fun

ChristianReggieWait851d ago

Love their titles, always have a great time

autobotdan851d ago

Yes I feel Quantum Break was probably the worst game they have ever made and even Quantum Break was a great memorable game i wanted to play a 2nd time immediately after. Remedy always do great stories and characters

Great studio, max payne 1 and 2 and some of my fave games ever and i just finisged control again for the second time on ps5 which is anither great game!

Cant wait to see what they are working on next, likely control 2 id say.

ChristianReggieWait850d ago

I'd probably say it's a completely different idea. They only did Max Payne to as part of the agreement with Rockstar ❤️

Flawlessmic850d ago

And thank god they did max payne 2 was sickkk!

Im totally down for a new IP from remedy though, in saying that due to them being a smaller studio and control kinda popping off id be suprised if they didnt go there again, either way ill be happy
