This is the most difficult game review I’ve ever had to write. Not because I lost a few of my fingers or because I don’t want to upset anyone, but because I’m not entirely sure what I’m reviewing.
The Order: 1886 is more of an interactive television series than it is a video game. This is what I had come to assume after previewing the game multiple times before launch, but I was still taken aback by just how much of this game didn’t require any input on my part. Entire chapters would whisk by without me ever having to pick up my controller.
