I didn't realize this was a Friday release. Just a little more than a week away! I haven't heard anything about embargoes, so hopefully we'll see some reviews pop up soon.

So, who is going to buy this next Friday and stream it on Twitch, so the rest of us know whether or not to buy it?

I have it pre-ordered from Best Buy, but I never get games delivered on the day of release. Blame the moose-run Canada Postal system.

Re: The Order: 1886 - PS4 (2/20/2015)

Another lucky soul got a early release and has posted his thoughts...

The Order: 1886 On Hard Difficulty Setting Takes 18 Hours To Beat, Narrative & Gameplay Blends Pretty Good: Early Owner

In a thread on Reddit, RoswellRAD shared his impression on the game, and stated that it took him 18 Hours to complete The Order: 1886 on Hard Difficulty setting.

What can I say? Game is amazingly well-crafted in practically all aspects. Gameplay is tight, visuals are amazing and oh boy, alternate London setting is just overwhelming. Yes, the cinematic feeling is there from framing to lighting to narrative, but the gameplay is as good as any other good old classic TPS game, even better. I’m a big fan of Gears Of War, loved all four entries (Judgment too, had a blast playing it a year ago), but.. this.. THE ORDER 1886, is the superior game. For me, it is the defining TPS of this generation, can’t see any similar game doing better in the next few years at least. Kinda bitting my tongue here but, get ready for plenty of surprises because non of the trailers tell much"

"Forgot to mention one core aspect of the storytelling: EPIC SOUNDTRACK. and I mean GOOSEBUMPS EPIC.

On enemies, character and replayability value, RoswellRAD said:


"A.I.: Hardest mode was… that, it was hard. A.I. is interesting but could’ve been improved. Some enemies try to escape, that was a nice touch. Characters: They’re fantastic. Though there’s room for more character development in further entries. Replay: Yes, yes it is, especially if you first played it on an easier difficulty"


Overall narrative and gameplay blend pretty good. I don’t think it reaches the levels of TLOU but The Order was good enough IMHO. There are alternate pathways but it depends, some acts are quite direct and linear, but there are some with big enough areas to explore, and different ways to approach enemies."

Re: The Order: 1886 - PS4 (2/20/2015)

sounds good ... I think this one will be a winner

and I don't care about it "reaching the levels of TLOU" because I thought that game was grossly overrated

It is the "Breaking Bad" of video games. Especially that part where Joel and Ellie have to start selling meth.

the only reason you need to use variations the words Breaking and Bad in relationship to TLOU is the bad AI collision/detection which was broken

Excited!

Re: The Order: 1886 - PS4 (2/20/2015)

From Reddit:
Youtuber PlayMeThrough completed Order 1886 and answered questions about the game.

No spoilers.

Took me a little over 5 hours on my first playthrough (including all cutscenes)

Not much replayability. You can't level up any skills or anything and there is no New Game+. And you cannot skip cutscenes either, so it would be the exact same experience I'm afraid. Pretty much the only side thing you can do is looking for collectibles, but that's it. No challenges or whatever.

Well maybe it's 2 hours or 2,5. I didn't measure the time, but the majority of it is cutscenes. So 1,5 hours or 2,5 hours doesn't seem like a big difference either way. Obviously depends on the player.

If you really get into finding collectibles I'm sure you can spend much more time with it. Or if you play on hard difficulty (which I wasn't). But my best guess, based on what I have captured it's around 1,5h-2h gameplay and rest was cutscenes. Take the first 4 chapters for example, maybe 35% of that was gameplay. Some chapters consist only of cutscenes. And often times there are these "interactive" cutscenes with QTEs where you need to press some buttons, but I wouldn't count that as gameplay.

It's more of an interactive movie to me, which isn't a bad thing. Hence the film stripes. So calm down everyone. Jesus 

Well sort of... the game doesn't always tell you where to go or what to do exactly. Sometimes you have to figure that out on your own (like moving a cart to climb up to the next area). Or you have to interact with certain objects or need to wait for your teammates to do something. But all in all it doesn't require too much thinking and all objects you can interact with are highlighted when you stand close to them.
Evidence is on his Youtube for now.

About what I expected from this game. It has "Gamefly rental" written all over it.

Yep, a 5 hour movie with super generic gameplay sprinkled throughout

Ruh roh, that has me worried now. Preordered at BB but will wait for the reviews before getting it.

Re: The Order: 1886 - PS4 (2/20/2015)

Me too. There's a reason I ordered it for in-store pickup and didn't use any Reward Zone certificates on the order. I still have it in my Gamefly queue and might very well go that route instead. Shame, the Collector's Edition was so Damn pretty.

Re: The Order: 1886 - PS4 (2/20/2015)

I paid with reward certs. I thought you get those back if you return it?

Edit. Called BB. They go back to your acct but it takes a few weeks

Re: The Order: 1886 - PS4 (2/20/2015)

5 hours is wildly different than the 18 hours from the reddit user posted above. I'm still looking forward to it. I'm not gonna bail based on a random YouTube user. Now if a bunch of legit reviews hit saying the same thing, then it might be cause for alarm.

Re: The Order: 1886 - PS4 (2/20/2015)

To be fair, that's exactly the number that discostu gave several weeks ago. All I know is it took me 40-45 minutes to play through one chapter -- Chapter 5, I think.

Gooter, yes, I know you get the certificates re-issued to you if you cancel the order, but it takes a couple of weeks and sometimes they expire pretty quickly. I just prefer using them for other things I know I won't cancel or return or find cheaper later during the return period. Just one less thing for me to worry about.

I haven't canceled my pre-order yet, but I'm keeping my options open. That's why I said earlier don't pre-order from the PSN store until at least after the review embargo is lifted.

So, if this turns out to be true then they delayed the game several months to turn out a 5 hour game? lol! I have it pre-ordered but there is no guarantee they get my money. I will wait and see what more reviews say.

Re: The Order: 1886 - PS4 (2/20/2015)

No offense, but people were expecting something different than what those comments were on reddit? Seems like all the videos had this pegged as a QTE game with a shit ton of cinematics. Sort of like Ryse.

Yes, why wouldn't we expect something different. I was hoping that this would turn out like the original Bioshock but in this new setting.

I was. As I said, I played a long level at PSX (after waiting on line for 90 minutes). It had stealth elements, shooting, action and QTEs. Seemed fun and pretty meaty. Now they might very well cherry-picked a particularly action-packed level to give us the wrong idea, but after playing it, the game struck me as much more than just a Heavy Rain / Akira's Wrath QTE-fest.

Actually it probably is a lot more close to Ryse, but with guns instead of swords.

Re: The Order: 1886 - PS4 (2/20/2015)

I didn't watch the videos posted but can gather the person's intent wasn't to "play" the game but to get from point A to Z as quickly as possible on the easiest level ... that is not the way I nor most would be playing this game

I haven't written this one off yet
