Dev Clarifies "For The Order: 1886 8/10 Is The More Accurate Review Score" Comment, Info On Tech Limitations
Ready At Dawn's PlayStation 4 exclusive, The Order: 1886, didn't received a big thumbs up from critics and big gaming publication. The game was criticize for having short gameplay length, no replay value, QTEs and many other factors. Gamepur awarded The Order: 1886 an excellent review score of 9.5, and termed it as a first killer app for PS4. A few days ago, our friend at EuroGamer Italy posted an interview with Ready At Dawn co-founder Andrea Pessino, and it seems like his statement about The Order: 1886 review score was misquoted by the site, "8/10 Is The More Accurate Opinion".
Today via Twitter, Andrea Pessino has clarified and stated that he would never issue such statements. When a fan asked: "hmm, so if a reviewer gives a score that isn't as high as you think it should be you plan to cut them off?"
"I don't have the slightest idea of what you are talking about - what exactly are you accusing me of? Cut them off from what?
I never said anything about an "ideal review score" - I would never presume to tell anyone how they should grade our game - the reviewer told me HE would have scored our game an 8.5, but that half points were not allowed
he then asked me to tell him why he should give the game a 9 instead of an 8 - to which I replied that given his (reasonable) thoughts on the game it appeared to me like a score of 8 was what he was suggesting that is all"
Pessino ended the conversation with:
"never in a million years I would dare to say what the "appropriate" review score for our game should be"

In addition to this, Pessino also explained the reason behind why Galahad does not cast a reflection on windows. Is it a part of the story or technical limitation? Pessino replied:
@JohngPR technical limitation
