The Order 1886 was sold with a narrative conceit that was both original and compelling. The Order takes place in an alternate history, steam punk version of London that sees players controlling a new generation of Arthurian knights continuing their centuries-long battle with half-breed werewolves. The knights pass on their names after their tenure is completed and their supernaturally extended lives have come to a close. What about any of that doesn't sound downright, un-apologetically, fucking awesome? Overwhelmingly dorky, but awesome all the same. What The Order succeeds in creating is a beautiful, visually ardent title that's all but hollow once you peel back the eye candy. And I mean that sincerely, this is easily the most graphically robust PS4 title to be released on Sony's console, but, ultimately, it’s also one of the most boring games I've played in a very long time.
