  3. So...why did The Order 1886 get so much hate?

Just finished the game yesterday and I don't understand why it got so many complaints during launch.

The major complaint I've heard is that the game is short and is supposed to only be about 5 hours. That is a complete and utter lie. It took somewhere around 8-10 hours to finish, which is the standard, and IMO perfect, length for a third person shooter. The gameplay is typical TPS fare, and it has some really cool guns. The thermite gun is one of the coolest things I've ever seen in a game like this. Plot and characters are nothing special but they get the job done. Yeah, it ends on a cliffhanger, but it's really not that bad. (Although maybe I'm biased because Trails in the Sky has the biggest cliffhanger I've ever seen in a game, so any other video game cliffhanger never really bothers me much. :p)

So yeah, all in all it was a very solid and fun game. Why did people hate it so much?
Good gameplay can easily salvage a bad story. Good story can never save bad gameplay.
The best games, however, have both.

Graphics over gameplay/story.

I think your signature says it all.

There is no correct formula for a good game.

Things as simple as your own mood will effect how you react to something the first time. If you like a games gameplay, or story, does not mean the next person will.

Thats the beauty of art. We all see it differently, which is why trying to put a stop to any of it should be a crime.

because its 6-7hour (i honestly dont know what you did to get to 10hours) game with mediocre gameplay for half of it and a poorly written movie for the second half being sold at full price. now that its substantially cheaper its easier to swallow.

It has insanely horrendous pacing for its story, its incredibly short, and it has at best, decent third person shooting.
