Slightly amused at some of the responses in this thread, typically from PS fans who desperately want this to come to their next-gen console of choice.
Cherry-picking is not generally thought to be a good thing when presenting an argument.
I did enjoy playing it, not the greatest but it looked great and the move set of the character made traversing the environment a lot of fun.
A list that is highly subjective
Look, we're all sorry The Order 1886 and Driveclub didn't review well but there's no need to go around bashing Xbox One exclusives that are well received.
If SO was a PS4 or a Wii U exclusive I'm sure the tone would be different.
The game is great fun, I hope one day you can get over your bias and prejudices
Heard of the concept of "cherry-picking"? Also "context"?
So many salty Sony fans downvoting all the positive comments.
I really want a Uncharted trilogy on PS4, even though the PS3 versions still look good today.
360 ultimately seemed a better balanced design for developers to use
Another PRO-XBOX article from Eurogamer...
Now tell me the news...
if they actually put some effort in.
Wow mainstream gamers what are you like!? way to send the wrong message to the gaming industry. I guess GFX really do matter. Sony will soon merge all of their franchises into linear, semi-interactive moviegames. Due to their ties to Hollywood the blur between cinema and games is something they've been pushing for forever.
By that logic there are no bad games then.
I'm surprised the devs opted for it.
it simply isn't a very good game.
Cliffy B has had his say on the game, and he praised the visuals, but said he felt let down by the game play. They need someone like him in the team,
The Order´s problems (what makes is a good movie, but not a videogame):
1 - too short;
2 - scripted action;
3 - no gameplay alternatives;
4 - interrupted gameplay actions make storytelling boring;
5 - every gameplay element is drab and rote;
6 - excessive QTE usage, specially in unnecessary moments;
7 - low replay value, as the action is always the same scripted one;
8 - half of it´s 6 hours campaign is unskippable cutscenes;
9 - pacing issues;
10 - little combat moments feel outdated compared to modern shooters;
11 - non-combat gameplay is just a linear walk down hallways;
12 - lack of resolution for most of the game's story elements.
there's a certain amount of quality to be expected and the Order just doesn't have it.
Come on EG. I thought you were better than this.
- This game is going to rock - people will still be replaying it after months and coming back after years - just for the story. Like a movie you watch and rewatch - a 2h experience, sometimes 3, where nothing changes from the first time you go through it
- It'll be the start of a new IP - like Uncharted
- Reviews will be lower than 8 - lower than Uncharted, as it seems to be the fancy thing to do not to give Sony exclusives sound scores :|
- It'll be the second lowest grade here on EG from Avoid, , "silver" and "gold" - what's the names again?
- The comments thread for this exclusive, much like this one, will be infested with persons not having an interest, even having a distaste for the platform it releases on - unlike what happens the other way around
It's just been drilled into me for years to not waste money unnecessarily.
when did I ever state that people should or should not spend £40 on a five hr game
If you can't think of better things to do with that money, I'll suggest some charities feeding starving people around world to you
I can't emphasise this enough, it wasn't a speed run.
So are you saying there's no games out there that offer twenty plus hours ???? I didn't say that was an average length, I simply said it's a quarter of the length compared to others. It's a tenth of some like skyrim though.
here a game that's 1/4 length of others, but is still same price as them.
I personally prefer my £59 to go to a game with a lot more than 8 hours of game play. IMO a AAA should have at least 25 hours of gameplay in the main story and at least another 30 in side.
i went over the youtuber's page(playmeTrough) and i also found the walkthrough of bioshock infinite, lasting only 3 hours! did any of you finished that game in 3 hours? they obviously rush through the game regardless of collectibles and stuff! i think length of the game doesn't matter after all!
