This is demo material.
Update: The $19.99 price, which was good as of posting on June 27th, is gone now.
Considering this week saw one of the most impressive PS4 releases to date, 'Batman: Arkham Knight,' (review here) make its general release, it's understandable if many players are not wanting for demo material at the moment. Even so, there is some impressive, and even stylistically rare demo material to be had.
It's safe to say that Ready at Dawn's 'The Order: 1886' was not the game that players were hoping for when it was first introduced (review here). It's short and is cut-scene heavy to an extent that recalls the heyday of the PS2. ('Zone of the Enders,' 'The Bouncer,' etc.) But along with those quite obvious flaws, is a game that is pretty unrivaled visually. That London steampunk setting frequently is featured in a way that is looks for sure to be pre-rendered... but isn't.
There are even times (multiple levels even) where the combat is extremely satisfying, especially when using some of the more rare weapons. That said, when it comes to replay, it's mainly the visuals that are recalling.
And now, three months after the release date, a disc copy can be had for $19.99 (order here).
