The Order 1886 is in a league of its own in several ways. Yes the graphics were and still are something to behold, the voice acting, motion capture, and all around production value is outstanding and even towers over many games today in that regard, but the game is also on an island of misfit franchises when it comes to just being a story of unfinished business.
Despite the complaints about the game’s length and self-congratulatory nature that have been trotted out adnausem by countless reviewers and commentators, The Order 1886 still had a lot going for it. Outstanding presentation, interesting characters, and world that truly felt unique amid the sea of semi-gritty near-future first person shooters that were saturating the market at the time.
While those other action games were busy outdoing each other with triple jumping, wall-running, and other nonsense, The Order 1886 went its own way with its alternate version of nineteenth century steampunk London. This huge world and all this lore being left in just one game seems, despite its faults, unjust. So perhaps The Order 1886 does deserve a real sequel on the PS5 it never got on the PS4 , yet was so obviously poised to have.
