How Critic-Proof Will The Order:1886 Be

I would be hard pressed to think of a game that has had more pre-release supporters and detractors than The Order: 1886. The new exclusive for the Playstation 4 system has endured a delay from a planned release last year to people blasting the game for what they say is a restrictive and short gaming experience wrapped in a pretty package.

Others have touted the concept of the game, an alternate history where a secret order protects society from supernatural dangers as a great looking start to a new franchise.

Any posting on the topic has earned a range of comments from people supporting the game to those taking any dig they can at the game, most of whom have not seen more than a trailer let alone played a demo version of the game at a convention.

The early reviews are starting to come in, and so far, they have not been great. IGN and Gamespot for example spoke of tedium and restrictive gameplay and that the game failed to live up to the potential it presented.

Two early reviews are not going to be the final say on the game as you can bet that there will likely be more positive reviews coming down the road but what I have to wonder is how Critic Proof the game will be.

When we do film reviews it is not uncommon to see films that get ravaged by critics do well at the box office as many times genre Action, Horror, and Science Fiction films fail to have the story and depth that critics want but they deliver enough action and excitement for the public.

I would be curious to see how the long-term sales for the game are after the initial wave of pre-orders has past as will negative reviews keep people away until the price drops or in time when it becomes a PS+ offering far down the road. Or will be say critics be damned and hop on board the first AAA exclusive for the PS4 in 2015 and enjoy the ride.
