The Order: 1886 Launch Trailer

The Order: 1886 Launch Trailer

Ready at Dawn’s The Order: 1886 launch trailer might not be enough to save this beast after getting hammered by critics this morning. While most reviews praise the game for having gorgeous graphics, the gameplay suffers from an abundance of cutscenes and quicktime events. It’s worth noting The Order: 1886 can be completed in just seven hours, but an argument can be made that it’s silly to extend a game’s length just for the sake of dragging things out. We’ll tackle this topic in this week’s episode of the Pixelated Podcast tomorrow morning.

One thing to remember about review scores is that they are just one person’s opinion. There are many times when critics absolutely gush over a game or movie that I found to be completely boring. Sometimes I’m left feeling like I’m on crazy pills for not feeling the same way as my peers. A perfect example of this would be The Last of Us or the Uncharted series. I’m just not in love with either of those games and don’t understand what all the fuss is about. Just to dig myself a little deeper I’ll go on the record and say I loved the movie Speed Racer. Everyone hates that movie yet I enjoy every second of it and watch it at least twice a year. I’m totally comfortable being the odd man out and perhaps The Order: 1886 will be your Speed Racer.

Check out the launch trailer and decide for yourself if this game is worth playing. At the very least you could always rent it for a couple bucks a day. If you clear your schedule ahead of time you can have the game beaten and ready to return the next day. Why spend $60 when you can drop $2 in your local Redbox for the same experience. Either way, have fun because that’s what gaming is all about.

The Order: 1886 will be available exclusively for PS4 on February 20, 2015.
