Gaming journalism is a complete sham. Like most news of today it has lost integrity in an effort to compete with bloggers and social media. Honest reporting has taken a backseat to sensationalized, clickbait, lowest common denominator trash. Payouts, scandals, controversy, political bias, all have turned the world into people living in a bubble or vaccum of their liking. The Order 1886 is a remarkable video game. Not just in the quality of its technical aesthetic (which is the most astonishing thing ever seen in a video game) but in its storytelling and diverse gameplay that does what's right for its story and not what's right to appeal to every gamer under the moon.
Dude, simmer down. It got a metascore of 65, not a 5.
Critics found some redeeming qualities. Maybe its a hard game to recommend for $60 with little value.
Even Sony and the developers will admit the game isn't a masterpiece.
