The Order: 1886 | Gamereactor UK

GR-UK writes: "If Ready At Dawn can find a nice balance, if they can mix up the different mission types, they could well be onto something. At the very least they're making a better game than privately I had given them credit for before trying it for myself. There's too many QTEs for my liking, and the mini-games aren't brilliant (when are they?), but the rest of the game was largely entertaining, even if it didn't strike me as a classic-in-the-making. Ultimately I'm looking forward to playing the whole thing through in February when it launches, which certainly wasn't the case before I got hands on with the demo. Much will depend on how consistently the studio can hit the high notes, because during the lulls it's weighed down by some generic design and a few too many quick time events, however, when they're on target, when there's a little more freedom and the bullets hit home, the various component parts come together and it's a blast."

That right there.

WTF? Some positive impressions about the game. EVEN IGN LIKED IT!!!

At this point these sites would have to be ashamed if they keep trying to bring the game down. Now that the game is out there for everyone to see, these sites can't afford to look stupid.

People should have begun to feel ashamed months ago.

It won over 25 E3 awards 6 months ago, that should have been a warning sign of a great experience to come. But of course, they preferred to follow the narrative rather than use their own goddamn brains.

I feel sorry for RAD. Sure, they haven't done themselves any favours in their showings, but it must be difficult for them, and their morale, seeing idiots downplay the game based on nothing but their weak bandwagon-jumping. They are a quality studio, and I didn't expect their first PS4 game to be a bad one based on their track record. Good luck to those who continue to downplay it, cause you're gonna need a lot of ammo, and there's not going to be much to find.

Maybe a pea shooter.

I knew this would happen, have been saying this all along.
The game will of course have great gameplay, RaD are a talented studio and now they get to stretch their legs on a new IP.

They're trying to tell a story, so there will of course be slower moments and their will be impact from more fast paced sections of the game.

The melee looks great and the shooter mechanics look very solid too.

Yup same thing happened with GOW on PSP and look what happened :D

I'm loving the PS4's variety of AAA, full retail releases spread out across next year.
The Order in Feb, Bloodborne in March, Presumably Ratchet & Clank and Tearaway Unfolded in the next few months after that, Until Dawn soon after that, then Uncharted 4, loads of other games like Alienation, Rime, WiLD, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture.

Fat Princess Adventure will release next year as well apparently.

GT7 may also release, the exclusives alone are crazy, all of the multiplats probably running best on PS4 out of all of the consoles.

The Order now seems like it's gameplay will match the visuals for quality and the atmosphere looks spot on too.

I can't wait.
