If this review came out earlier I wouldn't have gotten the game...

I guess I had an 'impulse' buy.. 😏

Spotie3329d ago

You had the game preordered, railed against the hate for the game, and now some random ass site's review is enough to have made you not get the game had you seen their score?

Not buying that at all.

AudioEppa3328d ago

of course you're right, I wasn't being serious with that post lol i came on here an saw a few order reviews pending so I decided to have some fun with the first comment.

How's your sunday spotie?

Some people just won't leave those dead horses alone.

"There was so much potential surrounding The Order, yet it hasn't lived up to the expectations "

If that's the case, then I think you were expectations were well off.

The order was exactly what I expected. A linear game based on third person shooting with a string focus on story telling with graphics comparable to nothing else. And that's what I got. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and platinumed it and now I've moved onto other games, just like I do with EVERY game (though not necessarily platinum). It's just a game and people have gone crazy over this. I don't know why reviews are still coming in. It seems like most of them are being submitted by the same guy.

Toon_Link3329d ago

Totally agree. I'm about halfway through and have been having a great time. I keep thinking how can this game be scored so poorly? It's too bad once it's cool to hate on something everyone jumps on board. Either way I'm enjoying it and if I have enough time I'll try and platinum it as well.

ninsigma3329d ago

Yep, it sucks...you could see all the hate before it even released :/

The platinum is quite easy, shouldn't take you too long. You'll more than likely want to get it by the time you finish because you'll have most of them and you won't want to leave it like that :P

What I would have liked though is a way to know which collectibles you've picked up. You can with the audio logs but not with the others.

Killzoner993329d ago

It's funny , the sales of the game beg to differ. Just another site jumping on the hate bandwagon.

marloc_x3328d ago

Still looking for your review zoner!

The Order: 1886 pushed visuals hard in 2015 - And still looks stunning today

Digital Foundry : Released in February 2015, The Order: 1886 was a stunning PlayStation 4 game at the cutting-edge of rendering technology, with visuals that still hold up today. The game's release pre-dated in-depth Digital Foundry coverage, something we're looking to address with this new video! Ready at Dawn's game never received a sequel and never received a PS4 Pro upgrade, but thanks to developments with exploited, older firmware PS5 consoles, we can now show you the game running locked at 60 frames per second.

The gameplay was bland and extremely frustrating at times with unnecessary QTE combat at points. But the world and the lore and the characters and the story were fantastic. I’ve always wanted a sequel. I still hope Sony will surprise us one day.

shadowT252d ago

Sony missed the opportunity to acquire Ready at Dawn Studios.

Tacoboto252d ago

But... Sony didn't want Ready at Dawn. Clearly

mkis007252d ago

I'm guessing had 1886 turned out more positively they would have.

RaidenBlack252d ago

And let's not forget,
Ready At Dawn showcased The Order 1886 running on PC at 60fps at SIGGRAPH 2015

I still stand by my theory that this game just released at the wrong time. Almost every outlet spent a lot of time in their reviews ragging on the game for not being an online experience, everyone was in the Destiny hype train and at the time they wanted EVERY game to follow suit, bashing any game that didn't. If this were released after everyone realized how much that wasn't future, people would've appreciated it more. I loved it, and I'm always disappointed that we'll never get a sequel

Tacoboto252d ago

That doesn't seem to be true about outlets complaining on the lack of online. The review summaries on Metacritic are very consistent: Amazing graphics, but shallow gameplay and a very short length with little reason to return.

Here's an example of how *little* time IGN spent talking about multiplayer:

"With no multiplayer, and no reason to revisit the short and stunted single-player campaign once it’s been completed, there just isn’t a lot to it."

It's the final sentence. They don't even take the time to say "online multiplayer"

MrChow666252d ago (Edited 252d ago )

"Amazing graphics, but shallow gameplay and a very short length with little reason to return."
You are right, that's what everbody was saying at the time, never heard anything about it not being online.
I've been thinking about trying this game for years, I may get it now that it's dirt cheap, no big loss if it sucks

MrChow666252d ago

Oh, add to that bad enemy AI, I remember that from the reviews, I saw a video of a wherewolf boss fight with a very weak AI

thorstein252d ago

And there we glowing reviews for shorter games. It was one of the times where hating this game was "cool."

CrimsonWing69252d ago

Can you show me the reviews that rag on it for not having an online experience?

I’m not doubting you or anything. I’m just being lazy.

isarai252d ago

Sorry, not multiplayer, open world is what I meant.

Tacoboto252d ago

That's also fake news, isarai. Again, the game was consistently criticized for what it was (Pretty but extremely short, extremely linear, hand-holding, no replayability), not for what it wasn't (multiplayer/open-world)

isarai252d ago

Nope, every review uses the term "linear" several times as if it's some inherently bad attribute. Not fake news at all. Since then there's veen plenty of short and sweet single player linear games that get lots of praise, again after the reality of everything being open world set it and it wasn't as great as everyone thought. But at the launch of the last gen everyone had open world fever, and especially the first couple years "linear" was a con in many games reviewed

Tacoboto252d ago

That's your own contortion assuming criticism of its extremely linear design is suddenly a call for it to have been open world.

zumlauf14252d ago

You totally made up a claim regarding an overall review consensus that isn't true. And, instead of just ignoring being called out for it, you respond with "oh actually i ment to say OPEN WORLD". Which literally isn't true either. You can't show us one review that bashed the game for "not being open world". And, somehow the other guy is getting downvoted. Over a bullshit liar.

isarai252d ago

Games were being criticized at that time for any game that wasn't open world or online. So yeah I got one mixed for the other, doesn't change my argument one bit that it would've been received better if it released later. People are agreeing because if you were not riding the "online and open world" hype train at that time, it was blatantly obvious there were biases in play for how games were criticized. Now after all that has happened since people want to say "oh wait these games were actually pretty good" cause they know better now
