The Order: 1886 is Both Exciting and Worrying | IGN

The alternate history slant of The Order: 1886 speaks to me. After all, few things are more interesting than taking the historical record and bending and twisting it to make something new, yet subtly recognizable. Ready at Dawn’s upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive title strives to do just that, marrying its so-called “Neo-Victorian,” alternate-history story and aesthetic with more standard conventions of the third-person shooter genre. (PS4, The Order: 1886)

That's a bit worrying about the gameplay side of things, IGN didn't sound too positive, but I agree with the visuals, they're astonishing, truly next-gen.
Paulie_gualtieri  +   725d ago
I said the same exact thing in another article last night and got 40+ disagrees lol.

Clearly the gunplay is stiff and in my opinion, downright horrible.I even mentioned as Colin did in this piece, it has the same crappy shooting mechanics of Gears of war.

I know they have a lot of time to polish things up but i'm still skeptical.This is their first big console AAA title they've ever done..

I said the samething and was bombarded with hate and disagrees. Seems like I was right after reading more previews.

What was wrong with Gears shooting mechanics??
nypifisel  +   725d ago
The press didn't see more than 12 minutes total, out of which roughly 2.5 min was gameplay. Honestly, they haven't seen more than us so I'm not sure how anyone could come to such firm conclusions. There could be another 10 months of polishing the game in any way so I'm not worried one bit. It is after all from what we've seen probably the best looking game ever to have been made to date.

It'll be another Ryse scenario.

Fantastic graphics and stmosphere and ok-ish gameplay.

At the end of the day it'll still be a nice game.

But I must say, for a crowd that absolutely ripped Ryse a part at every opportunity possible, PS4 fanboys sure seem content with the "bland" gameplay shown and the QTE's.They are even "blown away" ... Funny huh.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   725d ago

lol wut? What about the crowd that went around ripping Heavy Rain and Beyond for being nothing but QTE to point where they even went as far saying that they aren't even games... but then Ryse came along and it was all fine and dandy... Funny huh?

The gamepaly is far from bland from what R@D has revealed themselves. The footage they've shown isn't fully representative of the full scope of the game.

I guess no one really read what Colin stated. He said he saw this game play at the last Gamescom. So that is sometime around July/August if I am not mistaken. All of his hits on the game is from that time frame, nothing of recent. This is his opinion and my only issue with the article, is that it should have been released during Gamescom. I am sure the game has been worked on a lot since that time. And if the game is still not polished, I doubt Sony will release it. Also, wasn't there rumors that ND was helping R@D with this game to help get it up to par.

I don't know why some of you are astonished that you're getting disagrees.

Yeah. 2 opinions to your 40. Eat it."

It gets a negative nod for being like Gears of War but when Microsoft announced a GOW followup for the Xbox One a month ago it was OK to be excited about that.

Kryptix  +   725d ago
You do realize that this game has a very long way to go till release date, right? There's a lot of room for improvement, especially in the combat.

And what's wrong with a Gears of War style cover system? I truly enjoyed tactical advancing with the Gears cover mechanics. It also looks like the lore is starting to sound like it's going to be beefy. I want to learn more about where these monsters come from, how the order was created, who designed the weapons and all the technological advances that had to be made to survive.

Can't wait to learn more about it. Hoping for some sort of skill point system even if it's simple. Just wanting the game to have depth in it's combat just like it's story.

Colin says:

"I saw ran relatively poorly, with sudden, sharp transitions between scenes,"

then he says...

"Technical issues aside, seamless transitions between cutscenes and gameplay are well-executed,"

So which is it?

Personally, my opinion of games has always been in contrast with Colin... we are very different gamers. I need to see the gameplay myself before believing it. Not saying it isn't true, but until I see it, I'm not worried. Optimization issues on a non-QA tested bit of gameplay are expected in a demo. I seen worse than what I assume he's talking about in BETAs.

No, just no.

Back to strict Xbox defending SuperLupe. It is all you normally do. But then again you are reaching the point of desperation.

Everyone knows what they witnessed in The Order. A tour de force of gaming. The Xbox is getting buried in hardware performance, sales, the press, and now coming titles. The last couple of days must have been brital for you. No amount of DLC purchases or people like you attempting to draw apples to peach pit comparisons will help you now.

Same crappy shooting mechanics as Gears????
I have PS4 but let me tell you something bud,Gears revolutionised 3rd person shooters and games like TLOU and Uncharted followed Gears. Gears MP to this day is the best gaming experience I have had,just cause you probably played it once( if at all ) sucked ass and gave up don't shit on a game that has millions upon millions of the most dedicated fans in gaming,not to mention Gears average metric of over 90,MP is untouchable even to this day,the game has a steep learning curve and the game takes years to develop your skills( I went from 0.5 kd to 1.8 took me 8 years ) show one of the greatest,successful and most loved franchises of all time a bit more respect pal,go play COD you will find the mechanics in that a little more suited to your skill
princejb134  +   724d ago
So what exactly do you expect from a shooter
Each shooter is a copy of each other
Play one first person shooter and 90% of them play the same
Third person 70% play almost the same expect for a few things that make them unique
As long as this game gives me fun and good story I'm sold on day 1
Kribwalker  +   724d ago
You guys tell me what's wrong with gears. Ps fanboys are the ones that were saying it was tired and worn out game style when Microsoft announced they bought the rights. Which is it then, is it that you are upset that you won't have gears or is the game style as terrible as you claim it to be?
scott182  +   724d ago
Just because some people aren't interested in a series doesn't mean they think the shooting mechanics are bad, I never heard anyone say they thought that about Gears of War. besides there are many games that used a cover system and over the shoulder shooting before gears, and people loved it then too.

IGN are so blatantly in MS's pocket, before anyone says anything, MS have been caught multiple times recently literally paying sites for good reviews, because they are so unsure of their product, this reflects perfectly on how snake like, and misleading they are.

IGN didn't write up anything about their worries with Titanfall (horrible A.I., extremely dated graphics, repetitive gameplay), and now he voices his concerns about frame rate in which the game isn't going to be released for many months.

It's moronic. Gaming journalism is a sham, along with MS.

What's wrong with you, FlunkinMonkey? People can't have differing opinions without you dragging up conspiracies?

I welcome IGN's critical angle. Far too often previews are too positive, without the writer taking any time to take a more critical look at the game.

Colin Moriarity was extremely positive to PS4 arounds its launch, so to suggest he's a fanboy is just bs.

"except for evidently being so insecure about his/her console that you actually waste time creating different accounts?"

Apparently you're so insecure that you go around calling people insecure, blame them of having multiple accounts and accuse a writer of bribes, all of which you do without good evidence.

If you can't see that IGN are full of blinding inconsistencies, letting Titanfall get away with so much, so close to release, and then for some reason, now having these 'worries' about a games frame rate, when it's months and months away from release, then I don't know what to say.

Also, if you are honestly going to try and sit there and tell me that 4ShotKing isn't blatantly a second account, then my gage of your naivety has just gone through the roof.

I would welcome their 'critical angle', if it was consistent, which it isn't.. So don't try and lecture me on my reaction with regards to other peoples opinions, when I am expressing opinions of my own.

You can call me out all you want for ruining this site, but you're letting 2nd account trolls go over me at this point, so maybe you need to get your priorities sorted out.

"I would welcome their 'critical angle' if it was consistent".

Sometimes they don't find anything worthy of critique. Not everyone likes every game equally, so the idea that there must be some balance to which games are criticised makes no sense.

Also, the conclusion of the text is "I'm excited, but...", so if you ever wanted balance, I think there's rarely been a less conclusive judgement. Basically he's saying "Let's wait and see".

Many people are extremely excited about Titanfall. A game, btw, made by a great developer that many have played and loved. I'm not a fan myself, but I can't blame them for that.

And even if 4ShotKing had multiple accounts, who cares? Still a legitimate opinion. Moderators will have to consider that.

It's not as much that your hurt my feelings, as that you hurt my faith in humanity. If you can't stand that someone criticises a video game, I'd frankly take a holiday, make do some mindfulness meditation or even see a therapist. And remember to think equally of the different solutions, so there's consistency to your critique.

"Until just recently, no one’s actually seen the game. Sure, I saw a behind-closed-doors tech demo when I was at Gamescom last year, and we have the really pretty reveal trailer, too, but no one outside of Sony and Ready at Dawn has been privy to what The Order: 1886 is all about. Until now."

Keywords being until now.Since colin was at SM where they showed off the game (among others) i'm sure it's safe to assume he's talking about that, no?

Then there is this-

"I was left wondering how this could be the best 10 minutes of the game the studio had to show, especially when he reiterated that The Order would indeed launch in 2014."

Ru didn't confirm a 2014 release until just recently so Colin is indeed talking of a recent demo.

Again your assuming. Your trying to fill in the gaps with your own assumption. If what you assume is true then this is poor writing. Until now we haven't seen anything but Colin has (with his Gamescom showing).

What he says maybe true but what he has written is vastly different and tells a different story. For a start no-one else has done a piece like this. Kotaku and Eurogamer are two publications who would write articles like this. But they haven't (Eurogamer and Kotaku have been really positive).

Again, I BELIEVE what he says (don't mistake that for 'agree') but man... with all the praise IGN gives a generic FPS like titanfall, to say the order 'feels like a typical TPS' seems a bit lopsided. Especially when comparing it to a series IGN always gives a 9+ score (GEoW).

I felt the order felt similar to gears, and I.felt gears got tired and.needs a break and revamp, judgement was alright. If this is a gears clone with nexgen graphics I'll be disappointed because I was hoping for more. I love gears multi (gears 2 was the best), so I'm surprised this game wont have it since it's similar to gears.

For starters, the gameplay vids that I have seen for this game do look great and I wouldn't be worried about the Order not turning out amazing at all.

With that said Collin is just voicing his opinion of what he saw and even though the games is over half a year out, I think he's concerned that they did not have a more polished piece of the game to show at this point. It's fine and dandy to have bugs and other issues at this point in development but if they were finally ready to show off some of it, i think he assumes that is should have been something to show off the game rather than to just show it.

Again, not trying to troll, just my interpretation of what he is saying

Microsoft still thinks the gaming media can sell xbone back to the top. They just don't get it.
cyhm3112  +   725d ago
or maybe it is the stupid media fanboy themselves or they own the shares of MS or somehow related? who knows? But it certainly looks biased.

Not sure what anything you said has to do with The Order.

Let me educate you about The Order and Microsoft. Nobody's worried about this as a Sony exclusive....we already played it 7 years was called Gears of War.

God I hope this isnt another Ryse.. Awesome in graphics but the gameplay is forgettable.

It's funny IGN wasn't "In Microsoft's pockets" when they were bashing everything Xbox related smh

Playstation games can get criticism it doesn't mean that it's coming from a check MS wrote

The graphics look good mixed with cutscenes but idk about the gameplay
Brix90  +   725d ago
Kinda hard to believe when MS was desperate enough to pay YouTubers for "good" reviews
tigertron  +   725d ago
Well, you can't spell ignorance without IGN. *shrugs shoulders*

I doubt RAD will make the Order as another Gears clone. This looks like it has a lot more to it than just another cover shooter.
psDrake  +   725d ago
I am not here to troll since I have a PS4 but the trailer did not excite me one bit. The gameplay footage wasn't long enough for me to judge the graphs but what I saw was not so spectacular. It was good but I still don't get the hype. The voice acting was good. The story seems to be not so unique.

Hopefully we will see more trailers so that I can get an idea of the so-called super-duper graphs and the story.

- The only game that impressed me with the visuals is the Division...The snow engine rocks :) -

And after playing the Last of Us, games that are zombie based, apocalyptic, walking dead knock-offs have to offer depth and quality for me to invest in it.

This is a personal opinion, like a single drop in ocean. No need to go ape-shit on a comment you don't like, this is an individual take on a hyped game.
iTehDroiD  +   725d ago
Ok I'll take that as your opinion and I respect that but you say "The story seems to be not so unique". Really?? This is probably one of the most unique stories of the past years if you you did read all the informations about it.

But I expected more gameplay than we saw today. I thought we see some destruction and physics but we only saw a couple of seconds of gameplay :(
Anyway I'm still extremely excited for this game
monkeyDzoro  +   725d ago
Worrying about a game which is bound to release in October/November 2014. Which means 6 to 7 months from now. 7 months of polishing and optimizations. Yeah that's sounds right... if you're so keen on WORRYING yourself for nothing.

Now about the feeling of the guns. Nobody thought they built the gameplay for the guns to be like that? Characters are living in the 19th century, guns were not as maneuverable as they are now.

The gameplay is still a mystery from the info I gathered on many sites. Guns handling may improve through some ability like in TLOU or through an RPG-like progression.

Anyway, the game looks great. The gameplay is good but need some improvements. Which will come obviously. I'm confident that with RAD devs, all those "issues" will be gone at release. So to people who want this game to FAIL, if you're here... don't get your hopes too high.

I have no idea why I read this article. The game is really good and there‘s no reason to be worried, all games have issues when there are months ahead the release.
GundalfDeGrej  +   725d ago
The game could turn out awesome. It's a shame they didn't really show any new and unique gameplay elements to make it stand out more from so many other third person shooters. Their spin on quick time evenents could be interesting but it remains to see how much of an impact they will have on the overall experience.
lonewolfjedi  +   725d ago
Hmm that's weird cause when ign talks about previews for xbox games they only talk about the positives.

_FantasmA_  +   725d ago
Thats why IGN is IGNorant. I rarely visit that site and after all the years that I have visited it, I've never made an account. Too pro M$ for me. The site as a whole is pro M$, but you can see some of the staff wants to say good things about Sony and some do love Sony. I mean they got Ryan Mcaffrey over there. I remember him from when Official Xbox Magazine in the early 00s and I always thought he was biased even at OXM and now that he is with IGN, I still think he's even more biased. They guy loves anything Xbox. All their games are good and perfect and M$ is golden and I just IGNnore anything and everything he says.

sounds like the author was looking for a chaotic shooter , guns blazing, rambo-style-kill-everything-yo u-see esque game....And punishes the game for not being that
isarai  +   725d ago
1) game isn't finished
2)Vertical slices are usually several months old by the time anyone outside the studio sees them
3) it's going to be a WHILE till this game is released giving them plenty of time to work this issue out if they haven't already

Conclusion? why the hell is he pointing out and focusing on something that will obviously be addressed?

is THIS worrying???
I can see amazing grafics!!!Never seen this quality in an unfinished 9 month yet to release game...Now i understand why use letterbox...Thats because they have such cinematic grafics...I cant understand you IGN

"Bash" is a strong word. They said and I quote "Clearly, a lot of love was put into making The Order: 1886 look gorgeous" and "The Order: 1886 absolutely nails its period costumes and its wonderfully realized, believable setting". No one is arguing that the game looks phenomenal.
Salooh  +   725d ago
Awesome Visuals : Check
Great Story : No one knows until we play it to the end.
Graphics : I need to see more , so far i love the characters look.
Gameplay : Cover looks good but i can't tell if gameplay will be good or not. We only seen one old weapon in a very small area , so we need real gameplay footage not just 2 minutes.

Told you people to never hype even if it looks good. It's a new ip from psp developers. It looks promising but we need to see more to judge and decide it's level..
icheerbothconsoles  +   725d ago
This game reminds me a bit of when Dishonored was in development. Unknown studio, new ip and some different ideas. I loved Dishonored and I guess time will tell how good this game will be. Hopefully not another generic shooter but I'll still curiously await. Stunner to look at though.
Master-H  +   725d ago
Seems to me like he's trying to downplay The Order as much as he can, he doesn't even make it clear if he's talking about the Santa Monica reveal or his experience back in gamescom, then goes on babbling about frame rate issues for a game that's not releasing in at least 6 months from now even tho the dev told him it's not optimized yet, then finally compares it to Gears of War to make it seem like a rip off or something when we all know Gears wasn't the first third person shooter with a cover system..yep really trustworthy preview you got there IGN..
stormplyr  +   725d ago
IGN really has the worst writers both on the playstation and the xbox side.
Dlacy13g  +   725d ago
Grain of salt takin...this game still looks very interesting to me.

I am of two minds on the combat hud only being present during combat. One on hand its nice having a clean hud free of the clutter during exploration. On the flip side the hud suddenly appearing is going to be a dead give away that combat is commencing. For a game like this with monsters ever present I would think that may not be the best call since it could kill off some of that tension.
bleedsoe9mm  +   725d ago
getting a ryse vibe , hope i'm wrong
windblowsagain  +   725d ago
You could tell ryse was bad the first time it was shown.

If this game is anything like tlou,uncharted and even gears. It has my money.

It looks fantastic, physics are awesome. They never showed much gunplay for the simple reason, it's being saved for later on.
strifeblade  +   725d ago
Ryse was amazing beat it twice. I think this game looks good as well, but don't knock ryse ifbu have not played, under
rated Imo
icheerbothconsoles  +   725d ago
The cynical cycle of gamer life continues online. Fanboys feelings get hurt so they spew venom and critics of PS spew from their angle. I usually like to sit on a fence, let things sort themselves out, don't cast judgement until there's something to judge. From what I see of the game so far is it looks promising and the graphics are amazing.
izumo_lee  +   725d ago
I'm very disappointed in Colin in his written preview of the game. Does he not get that what was shown is only a glimpse of what the final game will be? Does he not get what was shown is probably not even 1% of the game?

To complain about the frame rate, the BRIEF look at gameplay, & other little things that don't mean anything at this point in the game development....Colin should know better.

Ready at Dawn didn't even have to show anything about the game at this point in time but they decided to give gamers & journalist a glimpse of what they are working on. Coming from games on the PSP to a AAA title like this is a massive endeavor and what they have shown is very impressive.

The only gameplay we've seen is where we're getting funnelled through the narrative, because linearity is important to keep a good story going at a reasonable pace, there will most probably be instances when we have more freedom & that will be when we know so much about the characters etc. that they don't need a constant narrative.
feraldrgn  +   725d ago
A quote from the preview:

"Your weapon and ammo count are only shown during battle, so as to not muddy the screen during exploration, with weapon swapping seemingly mapped to the directional pad."

^"During exploration".
So there'll be more to the game than what we've seen.

"Is it because Ready at Dawn is worried about showing too much, about being spoilery? Or is The Order: 1886 simply not ready for primetime?"

Its not for being "spoilery" in the sense of plot, as trailers and footage are so famously good at at avoiding(?). The spoilery that SONY is preventing here is hype. I would expect to have bare minimal information for these next gen games until your within a 2 or 4 week launch window of any given Title. This is to drive sales for Titles as they are released.
