Beneath the technical wonder this is just a dull, aimless Gears Of War clone – where the attempts at storytelling are just as boring and lifeless as the action.
Oh my lord. 4/10? WOW, no wonder the embargo is till the last minute. Still, I am still going to play it once my gamefly rental comes in the mail.
I'm holding out for 80+ on metacritic, before buying this game. But this is not even looking like a 70+ game, let alone 80+. This is dissapointing, I guess I will be waiting for Bloodborne as my FIRST ps4 exclusive. Damn it will be a long and boring wait. The bodybuilder don't want my money I guess. Pessino god damn it. EDIT: Oh my god, are you guys looking at the metacritic? It might even hit under 60+. Now what the hell, this is a huge shock for me. Maybe i'm too old for this shit, and should retire from gaming.
Don't base your purchases on metacritic or scores in general. Read/watch the reviews and decide for yourself if it's something that's worth YOUR time and money. The game might not be for everyone but I'm sure there are a lot of people who will still have a blast playing through it.
I'll just leave this here... http://n4g.com/comments/red...
I keep saying the same thing that $60 is better save for more exciting PS4 games like Bloodborne based on the signs that we are seeing from previews and also a full playtrough video and those that are saying that, including myself, were deemed trolling the game because it is a PS4 exclusive when it is not even the case to begin with. A mediocre game is a mediocre game and what system it is on has nothing to do with it. Now with all these mediocre reviews out, I feel like a heavy burden is lifted from people that don't think this game is worth our $60.
You are heavily relying on Metacritic to make a purchase or just play a game. From experience, you will be missing on a lot of good games if you go by those scores.
So this game is a 10/10 or a 4/10.... reviewers suck.
Or reviewers are human beings with different experiences and tastes, writing for different audiences. Just a thought. The key is to find a reviewer who shares your outlook and follow their stuff IMO
Different tastes yes, but that doesn't mean that this reviewer should give this WORKING game a 4/10 score.
Totally agree with that. Still there is no way that this game is a 4/10. That's just pure disrespect towards everyone that has worked on it. Admittedly I've just started the game and played for about an hour and a half but the attention to detail as well as the atmosphere in this game is awesome so far. It would need to fall of a very high cliff to come in an area where a 4/10 would be a remotely acceptable score.
@q8kik & Malphite: I agree with the sentiment but it depends on the review criteria/rating schemes of the particular site - a 4/10 on one outlet might equate to a 6 or even 7 elsewhere. Comparing reviews from different reviewers together can be fun, but it's kinda unhelpful at least in my opinion.
This just shows how useless metascores are.
All of the good reviews are from fan sites, get real. Sorry but that's just the truth.
at least we know those fan sites aren't paid, those are onest opinions for sure.
Reviews are just opinions... And this game simply isn't garnering a consensus...
I'd say 6/10 on average, where have you seen 10/10 though?
Sorry just rounding it off, I just wanted to point out that reviews are very erratic. Judge a game by your own experence not someone else’s...... I never thought you guys would take it so seriously.
you're too butthurt just wait for Bloodborne.
um?.... my anus if fine, thank you for your concern and interest in my balloon knot.
that's why you are a big enough person to make up your own mind and not let the big bad bullies tell you what to like/hate.
Ouch. I was not expecting to see scores this low :(
Same, I just looked on meta (to read more reviews) and some major sites have it at 50 OR LOWER! Never expected these bad of scores. Gamespot 50 Egm 45 Giant bomb 40! This will be a buy from gamestop in two months. It will sell well enough to have a major discount about that time, used. It looks great, I will play it, but not at 60 bucks. To much to leave to chance if I will enjoy it as much!
4/10 should be a broken game shouldn't it? And please don't criticize its 'attempt' at storytelling and say its trying to be a gears of war clone. That really just puts your 'narrative' expertise in question.
No, below 4 is broken. 4 is just bad. Pretty much as bad as a game can get without being broken. I reckon the visual pinache saves it from being a 4, personally, it is at least technically impressive.
Metro, is a pretty tough reviews. Generally you'd think 4/10 constitutes a broken game... But these review sites very greatly on how they weigh their scales...
I never expected the order to get by only on its technical merits. But I expected more. I guess being a polished cinematic spectacle with an actual story can only get you so far -- a 4, apparently.
So on a scale of 1 to 10, 4 is broken? What kinda games deserve 1 to 3 then? Empty boxes? 5 is halfway through 10 so how in the world can 1 less than half be broken?
Just what the hell is going on?
I thought anything below 5 meant a broken game? wtf
this is crazy and i think bs personally , so these sites reviewed ryse a lot higher when it was basically a graphics demo yet order is that bad its scoring a 4
Ryse's core gameplay and story were fun too it just got repetitive and needed variation. Its too bad there won't be a sequel.
Maybe the Metro of The Order: 1886 will end up giving people tunnel vision. ..i'll just show myself out. :)
This is not going to end well....game is getting slaughtered by the media :(
4/10 lol, be realistic what a pathetic way to grab some views. No valid reason this game is a 4/10 game...
This is harsh ...4/10??? No way! The Order 1886 Can't be worse than Transformers Rise of The Dark Spark??? Surely This Site is Seeking Traffic :/
Wow this is nuts! The game isn't getting great reviews.I might just have to rent this.
Ha. Talk about trying to make a statement.
To me I don't give a shit for reviewers it's there opinion I seen enough videos to know this game looks great .. A gears of war clone good enough to me gears was fun and for the cinematics who cares ppl complained about destiny lack of story well this game has a story , I swear this bullshit negative bashing of games will happen more and more as other big titles come out this year .
It might be a big title, but its crap. You want people to praise it for having poor gameplay, no replay value, linear, QTE's and chock full of cinematics. Gamers want games with amazing gameplay. What's shocking is that they thought this is what us people want, they are clearly out of touch with gamers and this will teach them a lesson.
So you speak on behalf of all gamers? Reviews are all over the place. But if this game is a commercial success (i.e. sells a lot) would that then mean gamers have spoken out in support of everything you listed. I'm just interested to find out, considering you're posting on behalf of "gamers", what defines what "gamers" want. Is it the reviews of a handful of select people? Or is it sales to the general public? If this game outsells ... let's say Ryse ... or Forza Horozon 2 ... would that mean gamers have spoken and said they prefer what this game offers to what those games offer? Just trying to find out from the self appointed spokesperson for gamers. Reviewers or customers? I'm not saying the game will sell well (it might sell sod all) but surely gamers vote with their wallets?
Well that's an... interesting review. I realize that we are going to see scores all over the place, but I wouldn't have expected to see a score this low. Even if we pretended that the Order was simply a GoW clone skinned with new characters/locations, it should still be somewhat enjoyable. More than a 4 anyways. I will be eager to see some of the bigger sites review scores to see if this game is that polarizing.
This has been one of the most hateful reviews that I have ever read. It begins as an open assault & then just carries on. Has the guy ever heard of constructive criticism? 4 out of 10 really? Do you like games or are you just playing them? T_T
Why should he be constructive? Is he paid to give the devs feedback on what they could have done better - or inform the masses of his opinion on the game. He really didn't like it and didn't sugar coat his opinion. You could just as easily argue that the reviews that have given it a high 8 or even a 9 are too positive and gloss over any problems or flaws!
It's easy enough to criticise a point to death to validate your opinion. But you are not presenting a balanced opinion when you do this. All I got was I like gears & resi4. This isn't that (which I expected) so I'm marking it down.
I'm not shocked. But, don't let this sway you from enjoying a game you've been looking forward to.
The instant this clown compared it to Geow.He lost all credibility.
Another hyped PS4 exclusive that has under delivered... what else is new?
It's a money/poltics thing and you have to know that. Integrity with guys flew out the window a long time ago.
Metro is one of the few publications / sites I think review fairly and without bias - but that review is a helluva stinger! I wonder what Edge will give it!
and that's cause everybody was shoving article upon article of this game on our faces, karma
DigitalRaptor? Cornholio? Ocelot? Where are you guys?
Didn't metro give mgs5:gz a 9.5/10 last year???
Why are the reviews all over the board today? I never seen a game get so many 8.8, 89, 95's then right next to it get a 40, 20, 1/5?????
No problem there are other 500 subs Hiped IPs coming near to you from Sony.
