No Recommendation / Blank

The Order: 1886 isn't a disaster, nor is it a particularly good game. It's a hollow diversion, entertaining but outmoded and caught somewhere between a medium it repeatedly fumbles and one it fails to effectively embrace.

Worthy in its (assumed) intent, and visually spellbinding, The Order's archaic, player-detached approaches to interaction and narrative make it a dated and instantly forgettable experience.

Beneath the technical wonder this is just a dull, aimless Gears Of War clone – where the attempts at storytelling are just as boring and lifeless as the action.

Audience Reviews

8 / 10.0
Ready at Dawn has had an amazing track record on the PSP with Daxter and both *** of War games on that system. When everyone heard they were working on a new IP for the PS4 is got everyone's ears buzzing. A historical third-person shooter set in 1880's London was just too good to be true. What came to fruition was a storytelling experiment that went well or bad depending on
