The 411mania staff discuss whether or not The Order 1886 will live up to the hype.
Not even worth the click. Flamebait/clickbait title.
Who approved this
Dude, I reported this: http://n4g.com/news/1672627... and it was still approved. It's not an article, it is an opinion piece masquerading as a walkthrough.
It will disappoint a lot of haters for sure.
It will disappoint some...and it will provide a fantastic experience for others. We haven't played it yet. Everyones different...hell...I know people disappointed in GTAV and that didn't 'fail' as a game overall. Can't please everyone all the time. Let it release...may know more then!
These articles are becoming disappointing.
The hate for this game is unreal. "Reviewers" are going to review this game with a microscope, looking for the smallest of flaws and over exaggerate every detail. Will not be surprised if people give it crappy rating just to justify the hate. Wont change my opinion tho, already pre ordered.
I guess since so many are expecting this game to fail, then it will e really disappointing at it's success. This is a really cool looking game with a variety of gameplay types, an interesting story, a really awesome setting and good dialog. Why does anyone want this to fail? Aren't people ever excited for something new?
Think it will dissapoint. 5 hours of cinematic, QTE and some covershooting will bore me.
MGS4 didn't disappoint on the PS3 and that was way longer than 5 hours of cutscenes for sure.
All signs point to yes. Only time will truly tell, but if this game isnt forgotten about in less than a few months, I'll eat my hat. Sure, the 'graphics' will lure people, but as always, its gameplay which will keep people hooked - or not.
What "all signs" have you seen? The FEW where people are fabricating reasons to hate this game? Why have there been no been no complaints about black borders on a game until The Order did it? There have been "theorists"(fanboys and trolls) claiming it was only done to lighten the load so the game could run even a bit better; the odd thing about this is that it flies in the face of what we already knew about the game. The Order was meant to have a cinematic look and feel, and the whole gaming world was told this over a year ago.That included the black bars on top and bottom that are actually RENDERED, meaning they're being actively displayed by the game; somehow, though, morons on the internet can't even get that through their head. And even so, why wait until just before release to start griping about it? Do you mean the fabricated playtime lengths, where people are using whatever methods they can to make the game seem as short as possible? Taking partial information from trophy gathering when the first trophy took hours to gain? "It's not a speed run," but the guy in the article before skipped everything he could and even spent enough time beforehand to get a playthrough where he didn't even die. How did THAT become an acceptable method for judging the length of ANY game? The Order has singlehandedly turned "linear" into a dirty word. Despite some of the best games of last generation- and of all time, for that matter- having been largely point-to-point adventures, only The Order seems to be lambasted because of it. At least, to the outrageous extent currently evident. And it IS outrageous, all things considered, since it's rather widely accepted that linear games tell better stories than open-world ones, and Ready at Dawn definitely wanted to tell a good story. Worst of all, perhaps, is the criticism for not being something it was never meant to be: multiplayer. So what if the available squad in the game is the perfect size for co-op? The story isn't written with that in mind, so why add it in? And you'd think that after all the unnecessary, tacked-on efforts at multiplayer we've been subjected to over the last generation, people would be glad for a game that just has a solid single player experience... you'd think that, but you'd be wrong. These are the main criticisms it's received, along with the nebulous "gameplay" BS that has become a rallying cry for Xbox fanboys. But what gameplay are you looking for? What's there, what people have put their hands on, has been deemed good, if not exceptional. Yet people like you with no experience with and no desire to play the game continue to use it as a talking point that lacks any sort of depth. Can you explain that complaint? Nevermind; best I not ask for the impossible. I can't decide whether I hope your hat is tasty or utterly disgusting. In either case, I feel sorry for it. Edit: https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... Does that look like six on six gameplay to you? Please, show me any gameplay video where The Order portrayed itself as 4 player co-op. Knowing a game isn't gonna be to your liking is different than bashing it. Where were the complaints for Dragon's Dogma's black bars or any other such game? The problem is not THAT the game is being criticized, but WHAT is being criticized, particularly in light of how these things haven't been criticized in other games.
Well said Spotie. Despite all the criticisms, I believe this game will surprise. When players get their hands on it, vs listening to a naysayer, it will most definitely impress. Funny how as soon as we get a game that is different than the mainstream, everyone automatically demonizes it for not having the standard SP or MP. Like I've stated before, I am suspect of all the negative press. RAD has set themselves apart from other developers with this project. Looking forward to Friday!
I don't get it Spotie... http://n4g.com/news/1431360... #3 "Worst of all, perhaps, is the criticism for not being something it was never meant to be:" You expressed your criticism for a game that was never advertised or shown as and you were very disappointed as higgens suggest he might be. Why are you constantly going after people for expressing their same hesitation or disapointment as you did for Titanfall? What has changed? Do you now feel different and that no one should complain about a game if they haven't played it yet. "The story isn't written with that in mind, so why add it in? " How do you know this, you played the game? You know that for sure? If the game has you play with another squad member then how exactly isn't the game made for co-op? You don't think that the reason they didn't add co-op was it might impact the resolution of the game (which is why they also have the black bars)? Some people expected Multiplayer, just like you expected BIGGER BATTLES. "And you'd think that after all the unnecessary, tacked-on efforts at multiplayer..." So [email protected] isn't capable of making a good, well rounded multiplayer? How about all the great multiplayer games that were added like Mass Effect, TLoU, Uncharted, Far Cry, DA:I (IMO). Everything doesn't have to be "tacked on" to fit your defense attitude of a game not having a certain mode like MP. "Yet people like you with no experience with and no desire to play the game continue to use it as a talking point that lacks any sort of depth. Can you explain that complaint?" But Spotie...even you said that... "Sorry, but I don't have to play a game to know it's not for me." Why does Higgens need to explain when you have already stated that a person does not have to play a game to know it's not for them. We should apply your own logic to this game as well, don't you think? "It's amazing how people can't even be disappointed anymore." I agree with this statement that you left in your other comment when discussing your points about Titanfall.
Brilliant, This is what happens when you troll and downplay other games on the system you hate. Your downplaying and troll comments come back to haunt you as they get applied to the very games you are desperately trying to fend off from other trolls. + bubbs red, + bubbs.
People hating a piece they haven't read..must be another "I love the order so I won't listen to anything else" type of comment. The small section of the article just offers 2 different opinions on if the game will be disappointing. Me personally, the original hype was outlandish as the game is essentially just another third person cover shooter with pretty graphics. I think the crazy hype behind it has died down since then as more people have come to grips with that same point of view. So while it's not groundbreaking beyond the visuals, we can see more level headed opinions about it as far as reviews. It will disappoint you if you're expecting innovation in the actual gameplay. Like The Last of Us, that was generic stealth / action third person style of gameplay but to me it had an amazing story and tone to the game, and the visuals were amazing for last gen consoles. It was easily the best game of the last generation to me. If The Order can match that kind of emotion then it will be an awesome game to me. If it can't, then it will be a decent game with awesome visuals.
For the nth time, enough with this stupid question.
Why are opinions considered news now?
This game isn't worth it to those with an opposing console that can't run it... I can also say it's not worth it... I took a time machine to friday just to play it & say it sucks in present time... GTFO with this bogus s#!t... No one with a brain are buying into these half tard opinions
How can it disappoint when the whole game is already on You Tube? If you don't know what you are getting by now you have your head in the sand. If you buy this game you do so being ok with a single player, on rails shooter, with 4 hours of game play and 1.5 hours of cut scenes, no replay value and [email protected]
Just maybe the people wanting to get it aren't looking at the you tube videos? Just maybe. I think people accept it will be 'short' and want to run with the gaming experience it offers.
