Hands-on impressions with The Order: 1886 - Nerd Reactor

"If there was one thing I took away from the hands-on time I got with The Order, it is that it is one of the most seamless looking video games I’ve ever played. The game transfers so well from in-game cut scene to gameplay, you can’t really tell when one begins and when the other ends. It’s so damn gorgeous. There was one moment where I was literally just standing behind cover as bullets whizzed pass me. If anyone walked by not knowing that I was already playing the game, they would probably assume that I was watching a cut scene. The amount of detail in the game is staggering."

Isn't this game suppose to be 30fps in 1080p?

Cinematic 1080p, or 1920 x 800 pixels. The only reason why it's missing those x 280 vertical pixels is because the game has black borders at the top and bottom to add an extra cinematic feel, hence cinematic 1080p. It is still just as sharp as 1080p, it just uses fewer pixels because there's fewer pixels actually on screen, if that makes sense to you. Personally, with this type of game, I can see what they're going for and I like the idea.

It is also a solid 30 FPS, which, because its a TPS, is perfectly fine because the game's pacing with most likely never go fast enough to justify 60 FPS. Case in point? Tomb Raider on PS4 is 60 FPS, but you barely notice it over other versions, simply because of the games overall pacing. It just happens to look smoother, but doesn't really enhance the gameplay or the experience.

Hope this info helps.
