You saw quite a lot about The Order: 1886 at E3, but some complained about the fact that the demo seemed a but linear. Ready at Dawn Chief Technical Officer Andrea Pessino addressed that aspect and a lot more.
The order 1886 looks fun and enjoyable gameplay with nice graphics equals a fun game that everyone should get.
It looks great for a rent but I don't see myself playing this kind of game more than once, unless it's really not what it looks like
NO multiplayer, no replayability. Not worth $60 bucks Xbox logic
@ time why great for a rent? The game looks awesome, go to ign they have a video where there show the demo that they played at sonys both at e3. Lots of action great voice acting, very well done. I don't understand the hate for this game. I bet for some of these folks that are always complaining about the order, if this was gears of war you guys would be praising it. I understand the jealousy.
@XiNaruto I have never owned an Xbox or a nintendo console since N64. Only Playstations @Sparta Yes I saw. It looks like a good linear single-player game. That's why I say it's a rent. These games are a great 12 hour experience but after that it's over. The games I buy are games like Dark Souls, MGS, Mortal Kombat, SC2, Kerbal Space Program, DayZ, etc.... all games that have replayability. I only made an exception for TLOU because it looked exceptionally amazing, which is not how I feel about The Order.
Thought I'd offer an atypical viewpoint as a sonyfan. I only have a PS4 and I honestly dont see it worth picking up right away, maybe when price drops. Theres just too many games coming out in 2015 and the order offers the least replayability, its a game that will prob be fun to play once or twice to get achievements and rarely ever again. It seems to linear and more like a movie then a game. I'm looking at batman, metal gear or uncharted over the order. Because they offer better replayability.
And how many times have you replayed Tomb Raider? Or Infamous? Or just about ANY OTHER story based game? Why does a game HAVE to include infinite replayability to be good? If it delivers 15+ hours of GOOD gameplay, and has a compelling story that draws me in, I will be happy.
@jnemesh I never said it didn't look good. In fact, I said it looked great. But if it lasts 15 hours and it's not really replayable, why waste $60 on it when you can just rent it? That's the whole point of my comment. We're not debating wether the 15 hours will be good or bad. We're debating wether the 15 hours will last 15 hours or not. And since 15 hours usually last 15 hours, that'll be a rent for me.
Games have always been linear since the nes days. Why is there so much complaining from these cry babies due to the lack of multiplayer?? Get this across your online obsessed multiplayer heads, not all games need or require online multiplayer!
@jnemesh I only played infamous (even though I never played a game in series before) once to completion on good karma mode. Tried to go for a second run on evil karma but got bored because it didnt feel as fun the first time. The main reason I got that game was as a tech demo and because there wasnt that many games out(still a good game but if there were other games avialable at the time with more replayability I would probably have waited for a sale) still arent, but by 2015 there will be and the order is gonna have a tough time competing with the likes of MGS5, Batman and Uncharted which have some of the best stories in the industry and offer really high levels of replayability. The Tomb Raider example only hurt your point though as it is not only a story based game but one with multiplayer. And you know what other game had a good story and multiplayer? Resistance: Fall of Man and I saw nothing but complaints about the story from critics and players because it had too much of a story focus and not enough action, yet here we are with new sony fans suddenly loving story based games. That game pretty much had it all co-op, huge multiplayer matches and the best gritty story atmosphere at the time and even with reviews as mediocre and as critical of the game as they where it was still one of the most popular games on PS3 at the time and its multiplayer community lasted for what seemed like an eternity. The bottom line is this video games are expensive and alot of people, myself included prioritize the replayability factor first because it offers the most value.
@times Agreed with every single point you made. Ain't it funny when the defense force blindly attacks a person who doesn't drool over every sony exclusive? Even funnier when they're attacking other PlayStation owners, imo. If you ain't with them you're against them. Why spend $60 bucks at launch when you'll get the same experience months later with most likely most bugs fixed. Multiplayer is the only reason to get a game at launch so you don't fall too far behind. That or you're just a really big fan of the franchise and HAVE to play it right away. Love the sp argument, when was the last time these people went back and played a sp game from many years ago? Are you still playing prototype? Infamous? The first UC? GoW? You're not, most likely don't even own them anymore, traded away long ago. Yet MP games from 5 or 6 yrs are still being played on a regular basis.

I love the idea of this game but it's slightly worrisome that basically no gameplay exists for the game and that almost no information is out for the game.
I think they've shown all they need to. It looks like a tight corridor shooter. We should know what to expect. The story is what is probably gonna be interesting.
I agree. What's there to worry about? You either like story driven tps action games or you don't.
what we have to remember its going for the film type of game,so they will want you to stick to the story and as long as the story is good i dont care how liniar it it. the problem with open games is you can stray away from the story adn it takes away the main story for me.
There's enough Gameplay out there and it looks absolutely fantastic. http://youtu.be/FVSfjmB2yi0
Thanks for the link... The Order looks incredible...and I'm sure we will have DLC afterwards. Maybe a standalone DLC featuring one of the other characters as a lead, and co-op added later. Who knows? I say, give RaD a chance to prove themselves next year, Feb 2015. No pre-rendering backgrounds, all real time at this level of detail...is just insane. I think the gameplay will be just fine. AAA devs usually won't venture off risking their million dollar budgets on hopes and dreams when it comes to gameplay mechanics. They play it safe and try small things at a time. Indie devs are the risk takers, no huge budget to hold them back from trying new ideas. They can explore and take huge risks...AAA devs can't. I can't wait to play The Order 1886...hats off to these guys!
No worries lot of events were we might see more gameplay before it launches.
oh man, They have showed 5 minutes of gameplay and only 4 of it was you playing!?!?! great i guess there is no actual gameplay at all.
I hope to see a great plot behind that magnificent graphics
This game looks amazing. Don't know wtf people are talking about.
People complained about Uncharted being linear, and look how that turned out, one of the most awarded franchises in video game history. You can't please everyone, and sometimes that's an issue in the industry. Devs will try to make a game that has the most mass appeal, which usually results in a junk game. RAD needs to keep doing what they're doing, from everything I've seen, I'm in love with this game. If people don't like it, there's many other choices on the PS4 to play so move on and quit whining on something that doesn't appeal to you.
@Testfire Couldn't have said it better myself. A bunch of whining ass wannabe gamers. The funny thing is we complaine about sequels saying there's not enough new IP's then when we get a new one they bitch about it before even playing it. You complainers cant have it both ways!
Can't wait until this releases and all the doubters feel stupid. Just like what happened with Uncharted,TLOU, and Heavy Rain before they released.
I guess when nothing looks as good as The Order 1886 & Uncharted 4 on their console, they have to discuss PS4 with either positivity or negativity. Sadly, fanboys choose the latter ;/
The linearity wasn't really much a concern of mine. The only thing that concerned me a little bit was the slow-motion and health regen thing. It's since taken a back seat to Bloodborne and then Uncharted, but it's still on my most wanted list for PS4.
When this game releases the doubters shall be silenced
U dont find it strange that they havent been talking about gameplay? I realize they might be under heavy pressure from sony to talk about how powerful the Ps4 is and show off its tecnhical prowress, but when you have jack all to say about how the game plays I find that worrisome. I dont mind the linear gameplay mission structure, I actually prefer a focused narrative, but they better have enough variation and gameplay design to make it not just another Ryse. Uncharted works because it flows well and has puzzles, platforming and different gameplay sections like stealth or objectives. Just a generic 3rd person shooter wont fly these days.
Only complaint i have is it isn't coming out sooner! :'(
There's gameplay out there, and hands on with may journalists on the show floor at E3. I don't want to see too much too soon. If the story is compelling then I don't want it ruined. Plus it's not all about shooting and cover. Apparently some enemies need to be defeated in certain ways. I've preordered.
Certainly one of the best next gen IP and franchise :) When we see the work done here, it too big for just one sequel. Day one buy for me :)
I have no problem with the linearity, and the story seems very interesting... My problem is with the gameplay. From what we've scene, the enemy behaviors are nothing to right home about. They just stand around waiting to be shot from cover. They have no interest in self preservation, and do nothing to draw the player out of cover. This may be in part due to what looks to be boring level design. The Lycan scene was equally unimpressive. To me, they took a sequence that could have been a good action sequence or a good cutscene, and ended up with the worst of both worlds. QTE to regain health is silly and unneccisary, frequently taking control from the player... It just doesn't seem like it would be a pleasant experience to me.
The game is clearly sony's Ryse. Imagine if they spent all that time into making next gen gameplay and a.i. instead of another glorified tech demo.
The game looks insanely fantastic. The E3 trailer with that 'werewolf' guy was awesome. The visuals are probably some of the best to date. But the amount of negativity building against the game is worrisome. First it was the supposedly larger number of QTE's (nobody's favorite)....then it was there will be no mulitplayer only campaign. I was hoping E3 would have dismissed some of those concerns but it only made it worse (IMO). Now people are saying 'it's the most linear game i've ever played' (that article is also posted here on N4G). Then after seeing the 'gameplay' it appeared (IMO and many others), that the gameplay was really infused with a lot of integrated cinematics/scripted sequenses. I hope the game kicks a$$...I had initially hoped that it would be the 'Gears of War' killer for Sony...but MP was Gears strongest suite - something that help build a solid community for that game. Not sure that will happen to The Order. As for replayability...this varies from person to person. I'd play this game (maybe not purchase - or hurry up, play it, and sell it back). I can't replay single player only games more thank 1x or 2x. I loved the recent Tomb Raider reboot...it was fantastic...(I borrowed it from a friend)...but i'd never buy it.
PS2 says hello.
Why when I read the title I knew it was Dualshockers lol smh...while the graphics look nice ...we will have to see how the gameplay is ..to be honest it doesn't look like anything special ....just being honest
