The game received 40 points from We Got This Covered. The author called the game "the biggest disappointment of 2019", criticizing the game for its story, combat, environment and performance.

"Control is one of the best single-playergames in recent years. Its unique blend of surrealism, sci-fi and mystery is compelling but doesn't give everything away, and the combat is fantastically varied and provides plenty of challenge." - TheSixthAxis, 90 points.

“It’s not often that a game invades my thoughts the way Control does. I'm at a point where I want to try out everything the game has to offer,” wrote a GameSpot writer, 80 points.

"Thanks to bad design, 'more is more'better.", technical missteps, dull exploration, boring storytelling and zero atmosphere, Control is a heartbreaking disappointment and a mere shadow of Alan Wake." - We Got This Covered, 40 points.
