I have spent $60 on a dinner that lasted only 2 hours, but it did leave me full for over 12 hours, so it was a better deal than The Order...

I spent $130 on a dinner for two that didn't get me laid, this seems like a better value.

I spent a quarter on a gumball machine and got mono. Way better deal.

You can joke about girth, but not length.

Yikes... I may have to return my GCU pre-order and wait for a significant price drop.

All the signs were there.

Hell, I knew when I saw the first QTE that we were going more Heavy Rain than Uncharted, and that was all I needed to know.

Well, that's a shame. I guess Best Buy is going to have an extra Collector's Edition sitting on the shelf.

Also from Metacritic:
Giant Bomb - 40
EGM - 45
Gamespot - 50

EDIT: And canceled, that was easy. I'm sure the library will carry it soon enough.

Wow, that bites. Canceled mine too. I will save my hard earned RZ Certs and $. Besides, I bet this will be available on PS+ by the end of the year.

Really wasn't expecting The Order to be just as negatively received as Ryse: Son of Rome, if not more so. That's a shame.

Yikes! I mean, I've never been TOO concerned with professional reviews, but I'm going to read through them and see if there's anything I can get out of it.

edit: from Polygon's review: "This is the sort of game that prompts you to hammer on the X button to break a thug's arm, but should you decide not to, Galahad will simply continue to hold the rogue's wrist and keep smooshing his face into a wall for all of eternity. It simply has no vocabulary to speak to the player who doesn't instantly comply 100 percent of the time."
That's... terrible.

Polygon also has their "Quality Control" podcast review up too. Those are usually fun to listen to. Justin McElroy basically has an open conversion with with reviewer about their experience with game.

The Forbes review is a good read, Forbes 6.5/10.

I give this game a Hold. Itís not a bad game, but the inexplicable game design decisions that bog it down, and the relatively short amount of time you actually spend playing, make it a tough sell at $60.
