The Order 1886: PS4’s Rise or PS4’s RYSE?

Hardcore Gamer: Going into the E3, it seemed The Order could be this year's big hit and a strong Game of Show contender. Going out of the show, however, The Order is now a game consumed by worry and doubt.

Funny, I thought the same exact thing seeing the game demoed. I guess Sony and Microsoft aren't that different after all.

AngelicIceDiamond1679d ago

I hope its PS4's Rise and definitely not PS4's Ryse.

pedrof931679d ago

Ryse's gameplay is bad becaus eit was bad, The Order gameplay isn't bad, simply isn't nothing new.

alexkoepp1679d ago

Reports of it being the most linear game ever and the fact they are reducing pixels count to achieve the graphic fidelity and calling it a "cinematic" game (smoke and mirrors) makes it not look too promising.

Conzul1679d ago

I expect the story and acting to elevate the game quite highly, even if the gameplay is a bit recycled. I'm not worried.

morganfell1679d ago

"The Order gameplay isn't bad, simply isn't nothing new."

That is an unqualified statement. One of the biggest chunks of gameplay, the investigation process, has yet to be seen.

There is a vast chasm that lies between something which has been done and something which has been done...right.

Props for a well informed intelligent commemt as usual.

" The Order gameplay isn't bad, simply isn't nothing new."

You don't really know that for sure .. all the talk has been about graphics and the cinematic experience.

it's like they're making a movie and not game.

People want this game to fail, simply put, we get drip feed videos of 2-3 minute gameplay out of conrmtext with the story and suddenly it's they've some how seen the entire game.

Many Said the same thing about Uncharted... They even bashed The Last of Us as being an Uncharted Clone with Zombie... And then we got game of the year ... Seriously, 3rd Person Shooters are done to death, as is First person shooters. But why does something have to innovate if the mechanics are Solid abd Done Right. This isn't a run of the mill affair, Its a STORY DRIVEN cover based 3rd person shooter with with a fusion of other mechanics, all done seamlessly.

XBO trolls wants this to fail badly, and frankly, I believe the Story, The Gameplay(When People on forums actually get to play it) and the overall experience will wow everyone.

It's gonna be awesome and quite frankly I can't wait.

Bathyj1679d ago

Wow Alex. Grasping at straws as usual.

Reports? One guy having a whine you mean based on a 5 minute section of gameplay.

And still whining about the pixels? I thought everyone realized by now the pixel density was the same as 1080p meaning if you had 50k pixels in a square inch of screen on a 1080p game, you would have 50k pixels in The Order. The picture quality is not compromised at all, it just has black bars.

In fact its using a AA solution you will rarely see on other console games, maybe never on Xbone. Stop trying so hard. I cant believe an Xbox fanboy has the gall to play the smoke and mirrors card.

morganfell1679d ago (Edited 1679d ago )

I would suggest that those only viewing the game from youtube and a hope for failure consider this:

"To 1080p or not to 1080p: that is not the question for Ready At Dawn's PS4 exclusive The Order: 1886. Running at a 1920x800 resolution in 2.40:1 aspect ratio, the game is presented like a film, with horizontal black bars running across the top and bottom of the screen. In an age where resolution is a selling point, is Ready At Dawn selling themselves short by giving up valuable real estate?

The short answer: No. The longer answer: In fact, it may even be better.

The television used to demo the game was the same size as those used for other titles at the Sony booth, yet The Order felt larger. My vision felt stretched to the periphery, so much so that it became hard to focus on anything but the game. It's a very strange sensation, almost like being in an enclosed space or using multiple computer monitors to give a greater field of view.

There will no doubt be a limit to this effect - I wouldn't expect to feel the same way if I were sitting farther away from the screen - but standing in the "sweet spot" gave me a sense of being surrounded by "Neo-Victorian" London and her inhabitants."

Kribwalker1679d ago

Ryse wasn't actually that bad of a game. The story was great, and the graphics were fantastic, the game got a little repetitive but all hack n slash games get like that, I had to stop halfway through god of war 2 when I was playing the collection because it was to stale to play all at once. The order is full of QTE's, I'm sure it will be fun in it's own way, and if I have my ps4 by then I might be interested in checking it out, but I'm prolly waitin till UC4 for that one

Destrania1679d ago (Edited 1679d ago )


Nice article, I haven't read that one yet. Makes me even more hyped to experience The Order. Can't wait.

Also, the demo they showed during Sony's conference with the half-breed was really awesome imo. Really enjoyed the intensity and feel of fear. The tightness of the space and the great visuals really added to that effect. I could see the emotion on the characters and it was well acted. Loved it. Can't wait to see more gameplay leading up to release (or not because I want to be more surprised when I buy it, which I know I will)

I see people are having a bad perception about graphics and gameplay nowadays. Jaw-dropping graphics don't degrade gameplay. I dunno where this idea came from.

Many people judges The Order based on vague gameplay footages. The game doesn't look that boring to me. Same with Ryse.

ValKilmer1679d ago

The problem is that the gameplay isn't good regardless of how the graphics are. If this looked like a PS2 game, the gameplay still wouldn't be good.

Same with Ryse.

XiNarutoUzumaki1679d ago (Edited 1679d ago )


How do you know? It's a 3rd person game, and it looks less twitchy than other shooters. i don't think that's a bad thing. RaD is trying to make an unique shooter.

Even the latest gameplay video looks fluid and seamless. I doesn't look that bad.

Thatguy-3101679d ago

The story in The order looks a lot more promising than the one in Ryse. To start it off the name isn't even spelled correctly

harrisk9541679d ago


I agree. No one complained about Uncharted 1-3 or The Last of Us, all of which have won more Game of the Year awards than almost any other games in history. They are linear story-driven games. You don't ever deviate from the story -- they are interactive movies, if you will. Why The Order is getting slammed for this is beyond me. Double standard.

Why o why1679d ago

There is no knowledge in his speak, only projections. I do remember seeing similar about many games of last gen. . Some turned out to be the game of that respective year. . It can go both ways but some just have the need to be negative. Way of the world I guess.

XiSasukeUchiha1677d ago (Edited 1677d ago )

Naruto, most of the time you can be an absolute idiot but this I have agree see anyone can make smart comment once in a while so Naruto, here's you bubble and your Kunai:)

They could create a crossover with The Order :1886 and Ryse, maybe next year Assassin's Creed?

CERN1679d ago

The problem I found with Ryse is that it's very boring and repetitive. After awhile you just don't wont to play it anymore. The order 1886 is also a linear game but the difference is that it's a story based game. It's one of the main reasons l loved Uncharted so much. The story alone will make you want to complete the game. Can't wait for the sequel.

elninels1678d ago

It'll probably be more like sony's ryse. Im kinda ok with that, im always loving third person cover shooters.


Anyone else wish that ghost recon future soldier still had an active online community? I missed objective passed tactical play; im hoping rainbow 6 (whenever it comes) will help, but I want that precision third person cover ish man. The competitive online scene was great for like a year then died.

At least it looks bloody amazing. That has to count for something, right?

gameon19851679d ago

only if you are easily entertain.

lets_go_gunners1679d ago

That article title is a win. We'll see, like everyone I agree the setting is amazing however....The gameplay shown seems uninspired. They have time, wolfenstein was said to be boring the first time they showed it off now everyone loves it so..GL bruh!

Speak_da_Truth1679d ago

All i'll say is lets wait and see if it is truly as boring as these ppl claim i for one am picking up this bad boy day one.

DanaBlack1679d ago

It's a shame this game isn't co-op or online, it could have easily implemented but I can't wait to get my hands on this game
