    Literally no game has ever looked this good. It’s strange to even write that, but The Order: 1886 raises the bar so far above its contemporaries that it stands in a class by itself. Joined by a soundtrack that perfects the mood, The Order is a cinematic masterpiece.

    You can fault this game for a number of things, as I’ve done here, but you can’t criticize because you haven’t the inclination to appreciate the product for what it is.

    The visuals are marvelous and the game has the potential to grow as a franchise but several flaws and its basic gameplay keep it from becoming a masterpiece.

    The Order: 1886 is a pretty good game, nothing else. Almost every part can be criticized: the story flows nicely but is extremely predictable, the fights are good, but only the ones with people in them (lycan fights are boring), graphics are gorgeous, but the world feels empty. Sir Galahad's adventure is yet another bit of proof that beauty isn't enough. You should see The Order in motion but do so only after some significant discounts.

    What I have a problem with is inconsistent narratives, and "gameplay" that has been so compartmentalised from the "story" that they may as well be in different products.

    There are brief moments throughout The Order: 1886 when it’s clearly striving for excellence, which only makes the end result more tragic. It’s easy to toss aside a game that looks bad or is full of bugs, but The Order feels like it should be a good game.

    The Order: 1886 is a terrible game. Not because it’s broken or made without skill. Certainly not because it’s an average-length, story-driven shooter with minimal replay value. It’s just a bad game, forgettable in every conceivable way and safely ignored by all but the most ardent Trophy hunters.

    An engaging, unique and thoroughly exciting thriller.

    The Order 1886 has been copping a lot flack by reviews, I would like to pint out a few things to help YOU decide if this is a game for you...

    If you prefer constant action, gameplay and the bullets flying (and that is totally cool btw) then you need not keep reading, go play Call of Duty or Gears of war.

    However if you enjoyed games like Heavy Rain, The Walking Dead and Life is Strange but also love a bit of third person action then this a game you will want to check out.

    ready at dawn have created a wholly unique piece of gaming art, it is completely story driven- with a lot of QTE's splashed around that don't feel lazy- they help progress the story, as this is exactly what the game has set out to be- a long, cinematic period movie.

    The story itself is full of mystery, intrigue and lore with amazing characters who you come to truly care about by the end of the game.

    The graphics are stunning, almost life-like in parts but it is the atmosphere and progression, just like a film that really got me engaged.

    I see The Order: 1886 being seen as a 'fail' by mainstream audiences, however I also see this as a cult classic for the niche market of gamers who enjoy a great tale of history and revenge.

    I am giving a perfect 10 because for what it is, that is exactly what the game deserves. It is epic beyond words.

    Again, I can not stress enough if you are looking for an action title, best save your $$.
    But if you are willing to try something new, have an open mind and are not bogged down by the pretty unfair negative press you will be pleasantly surprised by what i would call a masterpiece of cinematic gaming.

The story becomes magnificent and the cut scene become sporadic. Is also the occasional quick time and the game begins to have an intense action. There is still a difficulty in gameplay and as said before the black bars very atrabalham the shooting time. It really is a game that is worth and by the end of the game, I hope a sequel. Expand

    Report Card for The Order: 1886
    Gameplay: B. Good controls, fun gunplay, challenging enemy AI and level design. But annoying instadeath stealth segments, QTE boss fights, and ineffective NPC's. However, the fun parts far outnumber the few not-so-fun parts.
    Story: A. Cool immersive historical fiction with monsters.
    Graphics: A. Awesome environments, well-designed characters & baddies, movie-like animations in cutscenes.
    Sound: A. Masterful mood-setting music. Guns sound great, and voice casting & acting is excellent.
    Replay Value: C. Platinum can be a rewarding challenge due to collectibles. But no upgrades or new game+.
    Final Grade: B

    Superb Graphics, Good Story, Average Shooting Mechanics, and sometimes you don't feel like you are in control of your character. More time isSuperb Graphics, Good Story, Average Shooting Mechanics, and sometimes you don't feel like you are in control of your character. More time is spent watching than actually playing. With all that being said I enjoyed the overall package. Not worth a purchase but definitely a rental. It is a showpiece of what the PS4 is capable of. I would definitely say it is the PS4 version of what RYSE was for the xbox one. I will be completing the campaign after two days of play time then will be taking it back to Gamestop to trade towards another game. Expand

Secondly, I read the reviews and went in knowing full-well what I was getting myself into. Having said that, I give this game a 6 out of 10, because the positives are great, but the negatives are too prevalent. Here are the pros and cons, from my point of view:

    pros - Visually stunning, great gun play, unique weapons, interesting story, interesting characters
    cons - too short, to many interruptions to keep me immersed, only takes 7 or 8 hours to complete

    I think this is a great start for this series. If Ready at Dawn would have added 10 or 15 hours of actual game play, without the interruptions, this would have easily earned a 9 / 10 from me. If they can get it together for the next release, and give us 20 hours of solid game play, with a little less hand holding and breakage, then it will be worth $60. This game would have been a really good $19.99 entry for Sony. Hopefully they have learned their lesson.
