Color me cautiously optimistic on this one. I feel it's gotten some bad press for the 30fps comments and what not, but it does look pretty cinematic and overall pretty visually stunning. We'll find out if it's worth anything soon enough.
I'm optimistic because all the "bad things" in the negative previews have not been things I would consider bad. And the good things in the positive previews have been things that do consider good. It sounds like the first shooter that emphasises positioning and tactical maneovering since Gears1. Every cover shooter since (including gears 2 and 3) has been stop-and-pop. That plus the graphics and cinematic story has this high up my list. I am not keen on the bordered presentation, but that isn't a deal breaker.
This game is the best game graphically ive ever seen for a shooter game. there is no debating that this game has the best graphics seen on consoles now. I love the world, art style and game play of this game and can't wait to play it. Buying it first day
Yes it's a real showcase game for how far gaming has come, kinda like TLOU. It's a must buy for me now that Bloodborne and The Witcher have been moved out of February.
The game's looking fantastic. Visually of course it is absolutely incredible. But the gameplay as well is looking very good to say the least. Loving the stealth as well as the gunplay. Looks as if there will be a good variety of mission structure too. Enjoying the different areas/environments the game takes you through. Also like that it borrows a lot of it's "feel" from TLoU, and the cinematography and atmosphere of it is very sweet. Seems like a great gaming experience all around indeed. Don't want to see too much of it because I want to experience it all first hand when it releases in February. I'm intrigued how the story will play out. Can't freakin' wait.
This is really enjoyable to watch. The visuals are great, the sound and acting is pretty marvelous and the gameplay looks fun and exciting. I am very happy with how it is turning out. I like a good cinematic game. EDIT: It is also hard to watch a game played by someone who is not experienced. This guy runs into walls, shoots pistol at distances, snipes at close range. It's ruining the video.
My god, this game just oozes sophistication from every pore. I just sat their and loved the every minute. The costumes, the time period, the dialogue, the action, the set pieces. This may not be everyone's cup of tea but I am sold on it 100%. This is definitely my bag. I just want to add as well that the film style presentation with the black bars is a real touch of class and makes The Order look unique and truly wonderful.
Straight honesty, with all of the bs that was surrounding this game early on from all of the major journalist, IGN; GS; kotaku; and a few others, I was a little worried about this game. Though I was going to get it either way I was a little worried from the way they talked about it. Looking at the updated content from PSeX and this video here, all I can say is WOW!!! This game looks great and from what I say the mechanics are really intuitive. yes there are some QTEs but most games these days have them. This will be a definitive purchase for me.
This game looks absolutely incredible. With the Witcher being delayed, it looks like my February is wide open for some Order 1886.
i dont really care about review for this buying for sure Looks great Feb cant come soon enough.
The fluidity of the animations are top notch, they don't seem robotic;)....is it me or does this game look better than uncharted 4?..UC4 still a year to release but damn this look gorgeous, can't wait!
Watching this I have become verklempt... Talk amongst yourselfs.... Such beauty.
Give us a topic!
"The Prince of tides is neither about Princes or Tides"... "Discuss!" You've got to love Lynda! The visuals look stunning I have to say, not sure if I'll get it though, I have no idea why and it's most certainly NOT about the game, it's more about me wanting something different.... For me, this just isn't it and I'm prepared to wait for something that has me in AWE! It's not about the visuals for me right now although this would have most people splashing their inner clothing. I am in the mood for something unusual in gameplay (Suggestions please) and with a sense of humour (Nothing Japanese then!)
Looks stunning and looks like it plays great.. Detail is amazing.
This is the best looking game on console I have ever seen. And it runs so smooth too. Wow cant wait to play it.
Graphics looks amazing, don't like the unnecessary mini-games tho, seriously why does drilling need to be a button press mini game. Personally, I don't find the the gameplay interesting at all after all I've seen. I would definitely like to try it though, I like the way the shooting feels.
It was lock picking The Arkham games have these types of short minigames as well to show off Batman's gadgets and from what I've seen they aren't excessive or intrusive in this game
loved it in Bioshock
"mini games" lolwut?
The Order get in my ps4 now!
Look stunning and this is a compressed vid too.
Cant wait to kick some ass victorian style.
Do ya feel lucky steampunk
ahahaha i see what you did there.
Ready at Dawn have nailed the atmosphere. Voice acting is superb and graphics are hands down the best I have ever seen.
Nice to hear a variety of British accents as well. Heard a Geordie in there. Does seem like they have a few things to iron out though with the lockpicking prompt getting stuck on the screen.
I agree, some of the button prompts need a bit of refining and I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of accents as well.
All the previews from the last demo have been positive, this game will set the bar graphically but also have solid gameplay contrary to what others say. Sony is knocking it out the park with this, Infamous (looked awesome,played good), Driveclub (best looking next gen game imo, especially now with weather effects and has solid gameplay), Uncharted, etc...... Some of these ppl in these articles stealth trolling will be the same ones playing old regurgitated ips on their favorite systems of choice with the same exact gameplay from the 90's and come critique this game. I hate how hypocritical and bias gamers can be.
I love those cool gadgets.
I really don't want to be the resident downer believe me but I'm still waiting to be convinced this game will be enjoyable to actually play. It just looks so dated and uninspired from a gameplay perspective. Look at Uncharted 4, THAT'S a modern day TPS, this being herded down small corridors with the occasional QuickTime event between shooting gallery rooms really feels stale.
Maybe the problem is that your expectations are too high. That's the first original ip [email protected] is making. The Order 1886 looks to be far beyond what I'd expect from a studio that has only really worked on handheld games before (besides the Gow origins collection port for the PS3). They are even using their own engine and manage to make the game look better than pretty much every other PS4 game available. I don' think it's fair to compare a new ip to an established franchise that had time to grow especially when you consider the experience discrepancy between Naughty Dog and [email protected] If anything it amazes me how well they are keeping up with the best of the industry already. I'm curious to see how [email protected] will evolve throughout this gen.
For me this game is the''wait till the price drops significantly'' kind.Probably will go with farcry 4 in feb.
1- The best looking console game ever created. PERIOD 2- Facking amazing music. so so good... 3- Oozes atmosphere out of every pore. These guys should make a Silent Hill game someday. 4- Gameplay looks like every goddamn TPS ever made 5- The voice acting is unbelievably good. holy shit 7- Anybody who's in charge of the marketing of this game should be fired immediately 6- did i mention it's the best looking console game ever created? this is facking ridiculous.
you forgot to say "The best looking console game ever created." how could you ?!
whats the best looking game?
So you're saying this looks better than any PC game on ultra settings right?
off screen video looks better for this game. more cinematic :D
Ever since this game debuted I've had the same impression. -It looks good. That's about it. Way too many cutscenes, and some generic as hell TPS gameplay. As little of it as I've seen. Devs can throw the word "cinematic" as much as they want, but it's a bloody video game in the end. And it will be judged as such.
Why go next gen with a console if the games don't adapt as well! The Order shows me why I paid what I did for my PS4... A expierence I have yet to see matched by the competition & with the graphics I expect from this next gems exclusives! The bar is raised!
"some generic as hell TPS gameplay" As there been as TPS that has set a new standard for TPS gameplay? can there even be any? It is called a third person shooter for a reason, as long as the gunplay feels good, good cover system and the AI are not too easy and give you a bit of hard time, you have got yourself a nice TPS Even the cutscenes in this game are interactive compared too hell as long MGS cutscenes with no player interaction (yet many people love it, yea because it is not an exclusive)
RE4 (methodical survival shooter) Vanquish (slide, dodge slow-mo) Gears (slow paced tank controls against bullet sponges) Splinter Cell Conviction (point & click cover) Uncharted (auto cover hugging, fluid shooting to melee transitions) to name a few Granted not every game can shape up the genre like these, but even lesser games like Hunted Demon's Forge (fantasy weapons) or Army or Two (aggro) have added a couple gimmicks to make their action more original.
i find it funny that the ppl who throw around the 'generic TPS gameplay' never say what kinda gameplay mechanics that they would want in their ideal TPS
What would you like them to change about the TPS mechanics? A third-person shooter is a third-person shooter. Do you want them to make it an RTS or something? I don't get that complaint.
DAY 1! Everyone who played the demo was very pleased! :)
I heard a geordie accent in there. Class
this game looks amazing, but so did Ryse last year and look how it turned out. I really want this game to be good because it looks absolutely fantastic but I'm still not sold on the gameplay. technically its brilliant. Gameplay wise it looks a bit simple and gratuitous at times with the mini games and weird sequences to do simple things, possibly a bit repetitive (exactly my problems with Ryse as well coincidentally). I'll hope for the best but I'm not completely sold yet. Just trying to maintain some objectivity past the visual candy.
Ah the Ryse comparison, this is not like Ryse Great gunplay, nice puzzles (did Ryse even have any?), great story interaction, enemy diagloue, sneaking past enemies and not slashing everything in sight, even the identifying rebels part with the sniper adds a extra detective like gameplay Only thing similar to Ryse is the takedown
thing is, this isnt Ryse and this isnt from Cry"YAAAWWWWWNNNN"te k
I actually like cinematic games the whole inter-activeness no silence thing, I just like how at every moment it seems something is going on. For example uncharted does this well but when shootouts are happening the characters say things, this is a big deal I hate playing games were bullets are going off and it's just silence.
Gorgeous graphics,game play on the other hand i just dont know what to say about it
Not on topic but how did this pass it says 45 min in the title and it's only 35 min long... what magic is this.
Not gonna lie.. them graphics look amazing.
I can't help but feel that the developers have missed a trick here. They are obviously going for a strong, story driven and cinematic atmosphere and so far, the game to me is a visual, technical triumph and is truly a sight to behold. However, i am disappointed that this highly immersive world that the developers have crafted, is spoiled and marred somewhat with all the constant on-screen button prompts. I find it highly jarring and it completely pulls me out of the world and narrative. Every time you approach an enemy, why does it need to have a garish triangle logo appear bang in the centre of the screen telling you to attack? Resident evil 6 was guilty of this trope. Why does a bloody triangle appear onscreen every time i wish to ascend/descend a ladder or open a door or perform an action or collect weapons/ammo. I fully realise that plenty of titles have these same in game interactions but the reason i am being hard on this game is because this is a 2015 first party exclusive, using cutting edge visuals and technology but is letting itself down with tired overused and dated mechanics. The trick i feel the developers have missed is not utilising the new ps4 dualshock to its full capacity. In my opinion the game would be better played, completely without any on-screen hud whatsoever. Instead after an initial first level tutorial, it would be made clear to the player, that when they approach an enemy to engage in a hand to hand melee attack the dualshock will rumble and then the player must swipe across the touchpad to perform the takedown. The same downward/upward swipe could be performed to climb/descend ladders. Rotating the left stick could open doors and weapons/ammo could automatically be collected by stepping over them, and a subtle clicking noise would let you know this. Another thing i would like to see change is the bloody enormous on screen, bottom right corner weapons logo, that needs to be at least halved in size or removed altogether. I'm sorry if it appears that i am being overly negative towards the game, in actual fact nothing could be further from the truth. I'm really looking forward to playing the full game, it's just that i feel that with all the constant on-screen prompts popping up all the time on a game of this nature, it's akin to p!ss!ng on a Picasso.
I understand where you are coming from with the on screen prompts, I dont even like your way either of melee attack, Id rather the melee attack in Uncharted games or TLOU rather than the straight takedowns I saw here But I think this demo was made as a tutorial, and without some on screen prompts it will be hard to know like which door to open as there are three doors in one area so it pops up a little as you get closer to the right door then fully pops But yeah not feeling on screen prompts but as this is a demo ill see if it fades after a while in the full game
Yes i agree, i'm not sold on my melee swipe idea either, i'm just trying to think on the spot of other options and alternatives rather than having it repeatedly spelled onscreen, taking away from the amazing visuals. Like you say, i also prefer the way the The Last Of Us handles these moments. Come to think of it, as you mention these demo's are in a sense tutorials for the public, hence the use of the prompts and hopefully when the full game is released these will either be toned down and used less or we may be given an option to remove them altogether.
Absolutely cannot wait for this game. My wife was actually planning this as a birthday or Christmas gift until it got delayed. But just over 2 months away!
My ps4 is gonna look so sexy next to my X1.
I had mine together, but they fought too much. Now, I have a border dividing them. The Xbox One likes to lie down. The PlayStation 4 likes to stand up. The Wii U doesn't usually get involved with the bickering, but he has his moments.
My two have learned to play together..... for the most part....if one goes too much over the other ones side all hell breaks lose though :-/
Another day one buy
Bootiful That damn lightbar reflection on the screen kept on distracting me!
this game has looked great from day one the thing to take away from this video is how smooth he runs gets into cover and shoots vs how it looked in the first few demos . the first few demos it looked really clunky and clearly needed work and im glad to see improvement
Looks amazing :D! I'm pretty darn excited for this and people shouldn't judge the game yet before reading reviews or playing it.
Multiplayer would have been cool with this game using humans versus lycans.
4 vs 1 would have been cool. A team of Order soldiers vs a predatory werewolf. Evolve style kind of thing.
