The Order: 1886 Review | 4Players

It looks awesome and the borders between movie and game get blurred once again. But the linear, very simplistic game design doesn’t even scratch the surface – be it in the firefights, the stealth or the useless interaction. Overall: A tremendous amount of potential gone to waste.

Played it for 3 hours, already near chapter 9. So far it was decent, but not as good as Spec Ops or Gears in term of mechanic and story.

Graphic is the best looking game right now tho

Monstar2899d ago

gameplay mechanics can be considered in the top of 3rd person sooters,'s fast, and so very fluid in transition from cover to it. graphics of course are the best on consoles SO FAR...issue is the poorly told story and overdone cutscenes and of course QTE's. had potential if they made it into a survival horror with main focus being the lycan/vampires, etc

breakpad2899d ago

i think in an era where indies are considered normal games ...normal AAA games are considered system sellers that was audience mistake not Order's ..the game is solid and fun but those hypocrites journalists wanted to present as never seen grounbreaking game that Sony is relying a lot upon it ..and obviously after that an onslaught of bashing the game was began also serving and benefiting other interest from competition

Yeah its a pretty good game. It should've been about $30-$40, at $60 there just isn't enough there. The shooting was great, guns looked and felt nice and powerful. The cover system was very well executed. I really thought I was gonna love the game until about half way through and the game really started dragging on. For me atleast. Not only were there too many cutscenes but the cutscenes themselves were too long. I felt like half, if not more of the time spent playing the game was watching cutscenes.

They needed more half breeds, and a better way to fight them also. It didn't seem like much thought went into the half breed battles at all.

showtimefolks2899d ago

its a good new IP like original AC was. I fully expect a bigger and better sequel. This was ready at dawns first game on home consoles so please cut them some slack

on one hand we whine about wanting new IP's than when a publisher takes a risk we bash it hard. Don't cry moving forward if all we get from big publishers are sequels while indies will be the ones taking the risk

but don't worry a new

I think my brain is dying after reading this comment...

shadowT2899d ago

Graphics is bombastic. I like The Order 1886.

Gazondaily2899d ago

The graphics are jaw dropping. Really love the visuals on this

Gwiz2899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

I rather have a game to be an actual game,don't need a cinematic experience 30FPS lol.All jokes aside... that line should not become any thinner than it already was in the 7th gen.

Pyro2000x2899d ago

Bloodborne on PS4 next month, but you don't even own a PS4 and you have not played The Order 1886 most trolls like you are just jealous Xbots pissed off that all of your exclusives will be out starting September 2015 while PS4 has over 40+ confirmed PS4 exclusives for 2015.My PSN I.D. is tech-boy-88 if you own a PS4 prove it by adding me.

Gwiz2899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

LMFAO,ask Yewles.. :P

I don't need your approval

PraxxtorCruel2899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

You're an embarrassment. So everyone is an 'XBOT' now 'cause their views of the game don't align with yours. Good to know.

u4one2899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

Who cares if the exclusives suck. I have an X1 and a ps4 and I am having more fun with the X1. I started playing the order on thursday and I'll tell you it's the most beautifully rendered disappointment I've ever played. It's just boring. The story is wasted opportunity, the gameplay is simplistic and minimal. I promise you when I say this, X1 fans are not and have no reason to be jealous of the order (with its average review score of around 55) when there are other games available to them that are just simply better, and more entertaining. The ps4s best exclusive right now is a PS3 game remastered. At least the X1 has new exclusive IP that is great and reviewed well on top of it. Just relax and don't take it so personally. You have no reason to insult people for a game you have nothing to do with other than buying it.

Smok912899d ago

Yeah, its not for everyone. We've known what 1886 is going to be like for months so if you don't like the idea of it, don't spend your money on it.

iamnsuperman2899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

Videogames are growing in audience and genre. Like films there is always place to try something new. You can still have your Birdman or Flith while still having your Avengers or Transformers. Not every game is for everyone an nor did that line become any thinnner

Man-Eee-Faces2899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

All these 50s and 60s review scores can't be wrong. The game should have been only $30 to justify it's value to gamers. Shame because it has great graphics, some neay ideas and setting, too bad the gameplay, direction and value were second thoughts.

Smok912899d ago

Rent the game. Whala, a $7 game.

Man-Eee-Faces2899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

Already have it sent by Gamefly. Should be on its way.

I was really thinking to go all digital this generation but seeing disappointing games like The Order, AC Unity, Driveclub, and Watch Dog made me realize how much I need Gamefly and actual disc.

Cupid_Viper_32899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

"All these 50s and 60s review scores can't be wrong"

90+------ 1
80+ ------14

Out of 61 reviews on metacritic, 33 of them are 70+. which is more than half. So yea, actually all of those 50s and 60s CAN be wrong, they are in the minority.

It has as many 80s as it has 60s, and more 70s than it does 60s. It has more than double the number of 70s than it does 50s.

Lol, how about you stop trolling and stop speaking trying to speak for all "gamers" with phrases like "The game should have been only $30 to justify it's value to gamers."

You certainly don't represent my views, and I've probably been gaming longer than you have been alive.

Pogmathoin2899d ago

So, only reviews that agree with your opinion are valid? Maybe some just did not like the game, have that appeal to draw them in..... But just because one does not like it, does not mean it is bad, and vice versa...... Perspective.....

DigitalRaptor2899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

@ Cupid_Viper_3

Sadly, your facts aren't going to get through to most people set in their agendas, and their sheep mentality is not going to be influenced by logic.

This is why review scores just need to be abolished. I'm not just saying this because of The Order's polarising reception (plenty of games I've liked have received bad scores, just like many of yours have probably too), but because people cannot be true to the facts.

Additionally, length and value should have no connection to how a game is scored because ultimately, games depreciate in price and will a Metascore based on price affect somebody's choice when they are buying it at bargain bin value in 5 years? Of course it won't, and I don't think we should be taking the scores of these hypocritical reviewers when they can't even grasp the basic logic I've just provided.

Cupid_Viper_3, these kind of places aren't best suited for those who take offense to someone's opinion. I didn't know troll was code for someone who has a different opinion. Most people state opinions like he did as if its matter of fact because, it is to him. I guess some people don't understand that concept.

You're right. He probably doesn't represent your views by the simple fact that he's not you. The 50/60 scores may be wrong to you. They're peoples opinions bud. Those opinions may differ from yours.

I can see how someone should think this game should cost less than $60 because the gameplay hours to play through it are relatively short. Of course, this was known before release and we make the choice to rent or buy.

JoeReno2899d ago

why don't you stop talking about this game like you have played it and save it until then. seriously dude every thread. every single one.

SharnOfTheDEAD2899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

It's funny, people complaining about the length, yet some said Alien Isolation was too long, imagine the shit storm that would have kicked off it could be completed in just 6 hours?

The fact remains that it's a stunning piece of work that showcases PS4's GPU Compute. I'm 2 hours and 30 minutes in and I've just reached the airship. I think this game suffers because it has scaled back the fire fights and melee action and replaced it with cut scenes as well as the regenerating health, it makes the game too easy. I think they should have used more survival oriented mechanics which would have made the game more challenging. The other problems that some are mentioning don't effect the gameplay at all. The comments about the black bars and qtes are highly exaggerated. Uncharted, Tomb Raider, and TLOU all had these types of QTE's, but they didn't have the constant prompts to press triangle, or press x and the excessive number of visual prompts actually does effect immersion, but not so much as to rate the game a 1 or a 5, those ratings were obviously done to lure in clicks and nothing more. I'm trying to be as objective as possible by explaining what is actually going on in the game and not making judgements about things that don't affect the gameplay. Overall it's a well made game and I haven't noticed any glitches, but the excessive visual prompts(HAND HOLDING) does take away from the experience IMO.

Gwiz2899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

In the land of the blind the one eyed man is king,where are those using it the other way around? by going against the supposed click-bait maelstrom?.At this moment anyone praising it would receive more traffic by those opposing it and those that are agreeing with it.

IGiveHugs2NakedWomen2899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

Hey, if people want to be led around by the nose waiting to be told what to enjoy, more power to 'em. I play what I want, when I want and I like The Order 1886.


"I enjoyed Ryse and it was a beautiful game and short as well. Its funny though reading fans who ripped Ryse for its length now supporting The Order for the same thing."

Please do not compare The Order to Ryse, the Order has stable frame rates and bugs and glitches are rare. The Order is on a completely different level when it comes to the quality of the game and level of detail rendered with the graphics.

Kribwalker2899d ago


The order was also delayed to fix any issues, Ryse was a launch game, but it was a very similar experience. And what he says is true, the people hating on Ryse and its "tech demo, QTE linear short game with poor game play mechanics" are the same that are supporting the order and its "tech demo, QTE linear short game with poor gameplay mechanics." So it is completely justified to compare the two.

moe882899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

Same here. Loving it so far. Gaming press has cried wolf too many times for me to give a crap about what they say. QTE aren't that common either. Reviews had made thinking the game is a QTEfest. Glad I got it, RAD nailed the atmosphere, and story is intriguing to say the least. So sick of open world repetitive crap that the sheep want.
