The Order: 1886 is the most underrated game in 12 months…

Apposed to all reviews and notes I decided  to buy The Order 1886 to check it out myself. And I can state for the record I did not regret the choice one bit. The Order is simply a great game that reviewers just slammed for reasons un-be known to me. The length of the game is very good for a game that basically consists of quick time events and cut scenes. And contrary to what some reviews claimed it to be, chapter 8 took me just under 6 hours to complete and the entire game comes in just under 12 hours. And story/setting was pretty amazing as well a steampunk Victorian London in an alternate history with knights, lycans, vampires and whatnot is pretty damn awesome in my book.

Just look at that stupid three barreled shotgun! The only complaint I have is that the game does take control away from the player quite often but it’s not too bad. And I can’t tell where a cutscene ends and gameplay begins, which is what had me nailed to the screen till the early hours of the morning. I am dead tired while writing this… Overall, I’d give it a solid 7.8-8.0. It’s fun, the special weapons are brutal, the voice acting, sounds, and graphics are great and Lafayette is pretty funny. It’s a mix of Gears of War, Red Dead Redemption, and Assassins Creed. If you get the chance to check it out do it, go do it now!

    Quite interesting, you summed that up quite fast. I thought it was just ok overall. Nothing much appealed to me really.

      Well it really depends, I love the cinematic feel of the game, at some points I forgot I was playing a game instead it felt like an interactive movie. I think that is what most people disliked. But the game isn’t as bad it is basically I hi-def point and click game. Which is fine by me. Other people might dislike that.
