Action Adventure (Gaming)

How much action, and how much adventure? This popped up on my radar on an adventure game website but it looks very action to me.

It’s an action game first and foremost. That action is really great, but I think a lot of people have overstated the adventure aspect. I think that part of the game is excellent. There are a lot of side things you can do that feel substantial, but even those boil down to playing more of the action game. People have gone as far as calling it a metroidvania, and that’s asinine. It sets an expectation that Control does not meet. Control is not trying to do that, but the comparison has been made, so I suspect some people will leave disappointed.
