    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.

    Almost 2 weeks ago i played this game and finished it in one day, right after this game i went for Tomeraider and it took me more like 4-5Almost 2 weeks ago i played this game and finished it in one day, right after this game i went for Tomeraider and it took me more like 4-5 days to finish.
    I think when i finished this game i was sort of thinking, this was a nice game. I remembered back when it was released i read allot of companies so i could not get it. But once i had finished Tombraider i understood it.
    Honestly the game is fine. It was fun to play. Very nice weapon. The story is nice and the cut scenes are nice and all. But sadly its way to short. As some reviews said it, the developers did not take advantage of all the great things they come up with long enough. I wish this game could have been longer.
    Still if you can get it cheap i do recommend playing it.

    This game looks great and the story concept is a little Bioshock Infinite, but it fails badly due to the terrible control system. When I amThis game looks great and the story concept is a little Bioshock Infinite, but it fails badly due to the terrible control system. When I am fighting a Lycan with a knife, I don't want to be looking for different button prompts every few seconds. It is so annoying, I stopped playing after an hour or so and deleted it. With so many games now that have excellent controller layouts I wonder why something like this ever gets past quality control - perhaps they don't have any ? Expand
