The Order: 1886 is an example of dying linearity. The worst part is that this style of gaming is dying, not because it’s inferior, but because there are those who want us to believe it’s inferior. It’s just different. It’s a different way of telling a story and no, it’s not inevitable that you would tell it better if the game was more open. In fact, the overwhelming majority of games with the best storylines in history are linear. There’s a reason for that. The AI kinda sucks, sticky cover can be an occasional problem, they could’ve gone lighter on the QTEs, and the story is in fact somewhat clichéd. But this remains an extremely enjoyable, wonderfully produced game that should be rewarded for what it does well. Maybe some critics forgot that part.

If you can find The Order: 1886 for $30-40 used and you really enjoy cinematic games with some stealth gameplay, cover based shooting and intriguing story I recommend checking it out, I highly enjoyed it. If you are not a fan of quick time events, then I would steer clear.

The Order: 1886 - это неплохая атмосфера викторианского Лондона, постоянные коридорное движение и перестрелки, неплохая графика, очевидный сюжет, мало индивидуальные герои, QTE-сценки в совокупности с парой плохих роликов и нелепая концовка игры. Ах, да, не забываем ещё и про её продолжительность - неприлично короткая игра. Просто конфетка в красивой бумажке и с горьким шоколадом внутри.

For a theatrical experience The Order: 1886 is a high quality movie like experience. As a game however it falls flat with players offered limited control over the game, forced to sit idle in long sequences and not enough combat against the half breeds.

Fantastic teaser… can’t wait for the actual game to come out.

Was für ein verschenktes Potenzial! The Order: 1886 begeistert mit seiner fantastischen viktorianischen Kostümierung, der filmreifen Inszenierung sowie der sehr guten deutschen Lokalisierung. Die Story macht mit drei Motiven zunächst neugierig, Dialoge und Figuren wirken glaubwürdig und die Frauendarstellung weicht mit starken Charakteren angenehm von kitschigen Stereotypen ab. Leider kann das Spieldesign nicht mit der hohen Produktionsqualität mithalten. Den Rittern der Tafelrunde geht nach einem guten Einstieg mit jeder weiteren Stunde die Luft aus.

There's a word for games like The Order: 1886. Rental.
