    Such contrasting reviews too, but yeah overall its looking very floppy.


    From MetaCritic, here's a "95" score from GamingTrend:
    And on the other side of the scale, a "20" from Digital Trends:
    I guess there's a lotta room for interpretation.

    :eek: :confused:

    We can't say its a huge flop until the sales figures are in.

    It seems to be an average (literally 5/10) game who does nothing great but nothing terrible or rememberable either.

    However many other games like that have sold better than games that have had 90-95% average review scores, such as Knack PS4, which vastly outsold Super Mario Land 3D on Wii U.

    In that sense Mario was a flop and knack a success, despite polar opposite critical reviews.

    I'll likely pick it up when it's down to €20 or our free PS+ title in 9 months time despite the middling reviews. I certainly won't be spending €70 though.

    I think I'll have to judge this one for myself because the review sites already crucified this game before it was released. I'll check it out when the price goes down which I think will be as soon as March.

    I love story driven games and don't mind if the fat has been trimmed but it seems like Ready at Dawn might of cut some flesh with the fat trimming as well.

    Always looked a bit boring to me, but thought it would be one of those games everyone else likes.

    Too much cinematic, QTEs, linear, not enough gameplay, and short... Not my cup of tea, at least when it's priced at $60.

    It might appeal to some though, it could still do well.

    Yep that's exactly as I posted earlier in this thread. Critical failure and retail flop are often far apart - just as much as critical acclaim and glowing retail sales can be.

    I'd actually have no issue buying this if it was cheaper - but €70 here for a new release for a short game just can't justify it with so many other games out - many of which I haven't played since buying them during the pre-christmas rush.

    As soon as this ends up at £20 on Amazon I'll snap it up - much like I did with Murder Soul Suspect which was only about 6-7 hours long play through too - but I enjoyed it for what it was. And Sherlock Holmes - Crimes & Punishment which I really enjoyed which was snapped up cheap too.

    This is also another perfect example of why i dont buy games anymore.

    This type of game I would really enjoy but I am not spending $60 for games anymore let alone when they become cheaper.

    Gamefly has been a perfect purchase for my gaming needs and backlog.

    They gotta buy something for the new PS4. I remember people shelling out the $60 (or was it $50?) for it.

    I paid $35 on sale. Seems like a PS3 game they ported to PS4... :eek: Worth the $20 it goes for now.

    I just got Titanfall for $20 - that needs to be that lower price since an online subscription is REQUIRED to play.

    The Order, from what I've heard, is like the 3DO days, play a little, then watch a long video, then play a little, then another long video... :eek:

    Probably worth $29.

    $60 for a GREAT game, yes I can see that. I managed to get Super Smash Bros Wii U on sale for $40...

    I don't see how people go out to pay $60 for a game just to say they played it on the release day.

    One of the reasons I haven't rushed out to get a PS4. I can wait for, at least, the next Uncharted and MGS. I'm planning on eventually getting a (likely) PS4 Slim but that will probably be a couple years yet. Besides there's still a ton of PS3 & 360 games I want to play.

    Well, as someone who has actually played the game :rolleyes: it is not all that bad, the graphics are the best I have ever seen on a console hands down. It runs so smoothly too.

    It does have a fair bit of FMV but their is also a lot of gameplay action too. It's not all FMV for an hour, play for 10mins... that has been over exaggerated IMO. The story is pretty good, well scripted and the voice acting is very good.

    I would give it a 7 or 8 out of 10.

    EDIT:: Actually, I would give this game a 6, the pacing in a couple of places is snails pace, especially when you press the button to run and the character simply refuses to do so zzzzzzzzzzzz....... I hate that in games, hate it, so it's a 6 from me. Or maybe a 5.

    The big thing that bothered me when looking into this game is the black bars around the screen, I didn't buy a game on my ps4 to have it be shrunk down...

    I know movies do this but movies aren't interactive like games therefore it doesn't bother me

    I actually really enjoyed it. Took me about 8-9 hours to play through and I thought it was very good and visually the most impressive game I've ever played.

    Definitely don't have any regrets and it was a very solid 8/10 for me.

    If you read those two things, they're grading based on different criteria.
