"The Order: 1886 has been receiving a lot of flak since, well, first gameplay footage was shown. While the fluidity of the blending between cinematic and gameplay was what impressed me early on, others seemed to hate the apparent focus Ready at Dawn has placed on the cinematic element. Unfortunately, those opinions have only been validated ever since Sony started putting The Order: 1886 in the hands of gamers and press alike at the various expos throughout 2014. Now it was my turn to see for myself."
