"You've already been let down by Titanfall, Destiny, and Assassin's Creed: Unity. Now, the latest console generation will try to justify its own existence in a six-hour-long cover shooter with no replay value." ~ Honest Game Trailers - The Order: 1886
You've already been let down by Titanfall, Destiny, and Assassin's Creed: Unity. Now, the latest console generation will try to justify its own existence in a six-hour-long cover shooter with no replay value. But look at those chairs! Aren't those chairs pretty?!
The Order: 1886
Journey to beautifully-rendered Victorian England for a game that belongs in a museum because, just like a museum, it's full of Europeans -- and you're not allowed to touch anything! But never before has a video game looked so much like a film -- playing in the wrong aspect ratio on your TV! You'll swear you can reach out and grab the bouncing bewbs, comb the tangled nose hairs, and tap the realistically swinging dick and balls!
Join the knights: immortal warriors with more hipster facial hair than a Silverlake unicycle convention! Watch them use their steampunk doodads to fight werewolves... on occasion... and vampires... almost...! But most of the time shoot wave after wave of poor people!
Take your hands off the controller for cruise-controlled levels like: Chapter 10, which is nothing more than a cutscene: Chapter 12, which is... also nothing more than a cutscene; Chapter 13, also another cutscene; and the epilogue, a cutscene where, right before you become Batman, the game just kind of ends... Aww!
Experience a game that combines the thrill of watching Downton Abbey with QuickTime events to make sure you're still paying attention -- that will instantly kill you if you don't react fast enough. And do something even worse if you don't react at all! [Clip of a man raping a solider]. Press X! For the love of God press X!
When you're not busy doing nothing, get busy doing... next to nothing! With extra features like: looking at things! Looking at the back of things! Listening to things! And unlocking extras like... the credits! That's it!
So after all is said and done, enjoy a game that wouldn't be a bad launch title, but according to the developers, isn't really a game at all! [Developer: "It might be a moment, just single moment in one cinematics where you have something to do."] (Sighs)

Interesting! Street entertainer beats lawyer with rolled newspaper!
