The Order 1886. A gamers review that paid for the game!

Image
I remember watching Final Fantasy The Spirits Within all those years ago and I thought, "when will I be able to play games that look this good?"
Well that time is now!

The Order 1886 is simply outstanding, a PS4 tour de force. From a technical standpoint you will stare at your screen looking at the full HD image on display thinking you can't move as it must be CGI still, push the left stick and your character moves, as the cloth physics kick in and lighting dances all over every nook and cranny on display, you have to double take. No matter what side of the gaming fence your on The Order will blow you away. One level is set at night with rain cascading down over glass windows, paved streets and any matter of surface, nothing is left out. Ready at Dawn have created a masterpiece in technical achievements from start to finish. I honestly never once encountered a glitch of any kind. The in-game transition from Lycon back to human is uncanny and nothing short of movie-like.


The Order 1886:The Reviews are in.

Oh dear. Review scores are let loose on the internet and guess what? Yes the hate websites that I spoke about have turned out with the expected sub 6/10 reviews.
While other sites like our good friends at TheSixthAxis give a respectable 7/10 stating that it mixes up the shooting like Uncharted with a stunning graphics palate to rival every Playstation 4 game to date. A good pointer.

The Order has even had 95/100 by one site and 1/5 on another. This goes to show that now days most gamers take no notice of websites and review scores and in fact many gamers laugh and joke about the state of play with some reviewers and scores. How can a game get 1/5 like the Order and yet another well known terd of a game get 8/10 from the same site. Fanboyisem reflected in reviews? Politics eah!

Like with most games I will play it and make my own mind up. A review will be posted at some point but we will take our time and not just try to grab the headlines by trying to 'stand out' with a review…

The Order 1886: Opinion.

I don't know about you but I'm sick of reading about The Order 1886 and how it might suck.
Click time, game length, downgraded graphics, overpriced etc etc

FFS give it a rest, we don't care. Some corners of the internet are hell bent on this game failing, in fact some websites seem to be trying there best to make it fail.

Hate to disappoint but as much as you may try The Order will not fail.

Rip off price? I'll tell you what's a rip off, going to see a movie for 2 hours with your family.
Game length is a sticking point for many. Every time I read that some smart ass has done a game in 5-6 hours that translates into me taking 10-12. Am I crap at playing games? No.
I will more than likely play it again to root out those hard to get trophies as I do with many games.

Graphics are never up to a first look of a game. Most of the time they come close to "first showings" and on a rare occasion they surpass a first look. Bottom line is I'm so excited to play …

Playstation 4 Firmware Update problems!

Image
Anyone updating the PS4 this morning seem to be having all sorts of problems.

Sony have posted via twitter that they are on to it but we must point out not everyone are having the said issues.

If you can wait we'd advise that you do. Firmware 2.04 is the latest version.
