The Order: 1886

When The Order: 1886 first released, there was no doubt that it was one of the best looking games at the time. From its photo-realistic characters to dust particles filling a room, The Order: 1886  is still one of the most impressive games to date due to how natural its characters react, look, and appear within their semi-fictional setting.

In the opening moments of the game, players are quickly given a look at just how realistic this game actually is. Even though the title opens up with an interrogation scene, it’s hard not to appreciate the level of detail the title has. Since it takes place in Victorian England, everything comes off as authentic, clear down to the red uniforms the British guards wear. Even character facial animations are some of the best to date, giving us not just a game to play, but an interactive movie to enjoy as the story gets underway, one that tales the tale of a modernized Knights of the Round, ones willing to defend every last person they can, even if their very lives could be lost in the line of duty.

Just don’t forget to take your time to enjoy every little aspect of the game. Everything in it is meticulously designed and made to feel authentic, clear down to the pictures and collectibles you will find spread throughout the game. The only downside about The Order: 1886 is the fact that while it’s stunningly realistic and its setting highly impressive, the game still hasn’t received a 4K update for the PS4 Pro or a PC release. If this ever happens, rest assured, this game could very well be one of the best looking interactive movies on the market.
