As we come to the end of the first quarter of 2015, a moment of reflection is in order. I’ll primarily be focusing on Sony and their current lineup and affairs. After the recent announcement of Uncharted 4’s delay to Spring 2016, the first thought that came to mind was: “is Sony in trouble?”
The Order 1886 is probably one of the most disappointing games I have ever played. Understand that “disappointing” does not correlate to mediocrity per se, it just means it didn’t live up to its potential nor my expectations. The Order 1886 was one of my most anticipated games of 2015 and it’s a damn shame that it won’t see the light of my game of the year consideration. For every one thing The Order 1886 does right, it does another three wrong. Yes the game is a visual marvel, but pretty graphics and polished environments can only get you so far; especially when all other integral elements of immersion are poorly executed. With only a single player campaign to offer, The Order 1886 is a disjointed look on history that is only worth visiting once.
