I thought most of the shit it caught was because it was so much cinematics and so little gameplay though? Or was that just hyperbole?The best take on Steampunk is The Order: 1886.
Because it wasn't really Steampunk at all, it was simply the Victorian era with electricity, basically it was the same basic idea of a more technologically advanced 1800s but whereas actual steam based technology is often in the realm of total fantasy, in The Order it was all designed to be a lot more plausible.
Fuck, was that such an underrated game, it breaks my heart that everyone decided to shit on it for no real reason.

I've played way worse. I don't think I've ever seen anyone else even really try to tie all that together in that fashion. It's not an instant classic or anything like that but it was a ride.
Syndicate Wars, Tex Murphy and Snatcher. Syndicate Wars reminded me of Shadowrun when how dangerous the corporations were. I found it to be better though since it had no magic, so it was more like Cyberpunk 2020.
