Dan Rodriguez for SG: "With six months of work, could the team at BioWare improve Anthem and finally shape the game into something that could compete with other games in the genre?"
Lets...see bought it at lunch...sell it after 20 days...bought it again mid August...I am an experienced gamer since 1988...I play almost everything..I own all consoles and every major game plus I have 411 games on ps4 ..78 on xbox one..12 on switch..so in my humble opinion..is that I love bioware and I like very much the shooting mechanics of the game.but everything else its just not worth to invest time.for me the best shooter looter game remains destiny.after that division after that? I have my eyes on borderlands 3 right now. EA is a major destroyer of fine studios Where is criterion for example?
I just recently bought it (for cheap) and all I can say is it’s a mess at the moment. I’ve been dropped out of many missions! The loading is atrocious! I can’t tell if im doing campaign missions or side quests? Why does every mission have to matchmake? I would have hated to see how this game was at launch
You can set missions to private to avoid matchmaking (it's in the "launch menu" in the same tab as party members if I remember correctly) Disclaimer: not trying to defend the game, just letting you know you can disable matchmaking
Thank you I’ll set it to private and see if that makes my experience with the game any better
I cant log in or stay logged in for more than 10-20 mins to this day...
You can put glitter in it, stud it with diamonds, and wrap it in gold foil but at the end if the day it's still just a pile of crap. To make this game good they'd have to add hundreds of uniquely designed pieces of loot, and completely retructure the map to accommodate more mission variety. Which means they'd also have to make dozens of new mssion types that feel pretty different from each other. Design about 5 or so new bosses/bossfights, and add some sort of actual combat functionality to the flying with missions to accommodate. All that as a free update, THEN it would be a game worth my time
It’d be hard to make it worse than it was at launch.
I did have some fun with Anthem, I really enjoyed the concept, flying was fun and combat was enjoyable... BUT, content-wise it was never worth the 60€ I paid for it, especially when 90% of the armor sets (cosmetic or not) require endless grinding or real money. The way Anthem ended up, it should have been 30€ at launch, and gaining armors should have been a lot easier.
