  • Alternate History – The Order: 1886 allows players to discover a unique version of Victorian-Era London where technology and the supernatural collide.

  • Historical Mythology – The game introduces a unique mythology that will fuse actual history (real world places, figures, and events) with twists on familiar myths and legends to create an alternate history from the one we know today.
  • Filmic Immersion - The game’s unique filmic presentation is designed to replicate the texture of film and use real-world motion picture and cinematography techniques to emphasize dramatic character performance and realism.

The Order is a hard game to Quantify. I enjoyed it immensely and disagree with the many negative critic reviews regarding it and yet there are certain aspects of truth regarding some bits about it but I don't necessarily think that a short game with no multiplayer is a bad thing, not all games need to be padded out with so much filler and The Order: 1886's tight atmospheric narrative really works in that regard.

The game is set in a slightly steampunk Victorian London in 1886 following Grayson or Sir Galahad as his title, one of the Knights of the Order. Their job is to maintain the balance between the half breeds and hummanity, which largely comes down to killing Lycans, aka werewolves. The story starts off slow, gets really interesting in the middle then ends rather abruptly, there's no real resolution to the plot, it feels like a part one of a series with all the loose ends. Hoping for a sequel perhaps? I really hated how incomplete it feels.

The cast is superbly voice acted lending to that gritty Victorian feel. Galahad is a pretty dour tough guy, and most of the Order is built from similar stock except for the Marquis, a French knight in the order who is the utter cliched skirt chasing Frenchman I despised immediately. None of the characters are especially interesting, it's just I couldn't stand him.

It's essentially a third person shooter gameplay wise. It's pretty standard in that regard, you can take cover behind conveniently waist high fences, crates and sandbags while shooting at enemies. There's nothing remotely new there though some of the weapons are excellent. The Arc gun fires lightning and my personal favorite the Thermite gun wich fires a flammable cloud you can then ignite with a charge, it's satisfying, and devastating.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great idea, but flawed execution. 4 Mar. 2015
By Jamie
Edition:Standard Edition
A lot has been made about the length of the game. To be honest, I endured my way to the end and really wouldn't have wanted it to be any longer than it was.

Pros:

It's undeniably pretty - There is no getting around it, the game does look very nice.
The story starts well - Ok that's about as far as it gets, but there is remnants of a good idea that could be salvaged in the sequel.
Good voice acting - The dialogue is bobbins, but it's delivered with gusto.

....I'll be honest, that's about it for me.

Cons:

Lazy devs: This is a tricky one without spoiling the game, but there is a fight early in the game which is then replicated later on. You could also apply this to the lycan interactions. Every time is the same.
Empty streets - Where is everybody? AC:Unity demonstrates that crowds make the city. This place is a ghost town
Insta-kill stealth - Sorry, but the stealth missions were ruined by this mechanic.
The cutscenes - I advise having a book handy for the myriad of cutscenes.
The AI - Could probably remove the I from that abbreviation.
It's dark - It may be beautifully rendered, but that's no good if I cannot see anything.
The plot - Started well, and then fell off a cliff.
The guns - Bog standard weapons, and the few special weapons only appear a few times.
QTA - Quick time actions can be done well. Here they were not. They, along with the cutscenes broke up the flow of the game waaaaay to much.
Letterbox and camera: So not only is the viewing area reduced, the camera is so tight to Galahad I feel like it's lodged in his colon.

After all that I will still give it a 3/5, as there is a good idea in there somewhere. Hopefully Ready At Dawn can learn from their mistakes. Also, I only paid £30 for it, and then traded it in for the same. If I had paid £45-50 for this I would probably give it 2/5.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Glimpse Of What Next Gen Should Be 25 Feb. 2015
By Gabs
Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
As a dedicated gamer, I want to say that this game does not warrant the full price. Without a doubt it is gorgeous to look at and pleasant to experience, but after that first short disappointing play-through, you may feel ripped off.

Pros:
- The graphics are fantastic; hands-down it is the best looking console game so far to date. This should be the standard of gaming in the year 2015 and onward.
- The shooting is solid; there is a decent variety of weapons to use as they shoot and sound fantastic.
- Overall the core game mechanics work well (if albeit cliche). QTE sequences and stealth sequences are to be found for your pleasure or torture (I personally think they worked well with the games pacing).

Cons:
- LACK OF CONTENT! With only a single-player campaign to boot, there is no reason for you to repeat the short campaign! It only took me 5-6 hours to complete the game without skipping cut scenes or rushing!
- LACKS DECENT ENEMY VARIETY - with only 4 enemy types (guys with guns, guys with shotguns, heavies with bigger shotguns and Lycans), the game just does not deliver any meaningful or challenging fire-fights that other games do better in!
- The final boss fight is one big QTE ; this is a big gaming sin in my book (it grinds my teeth to see so many modern games chicken out on creating awesome boss fights by using QTEs).
- The story is so hit and miss! I love the premise (I really do), but it really does leave a bitter taste in your mouth upon completion. You will be left thinking "IS THAT IT?!", I guarantee you.

All in all, while I certainly had fun, the game is a huge disappointment. However, I do recommend that you play it; just not at full price!
