    Anthem’s rich storytelling and engaging combat lays the foundation for Bioware’s newest adventure. While there are plenty of quality of life improvements to be made, Anthem’s ambitious approach to the looter-shooter genre is encouraging given the development team’s steadfast community engagement. With a roadmap stretching far into the horizon, we’ll be flying around the world of Anthem for a long time to come.

    The controls of Anthem are intuitive and engaging. Flying through the world of Bastion is a sight to behold, and coordinating with your team on higher difficulties like Grandmaster is rewarding. Despite some questionable design choices and shortcomings, Anthem has a strong foundation that has potential to be a genre leader, but isn’t quite there just yet.

    Anthem is a painfully average RPG from a developer that is capable of so much more.

    Anthem is a song that we've heard a few too many times before. Here's a game that promises a grand vision of an open world, of a co-op RPG shooter that you can play for dozens of hours with your friends, but at launch it simply doesn't live up to expectations. The core exosuit flying, the Javelin design, the interwoven combat and the gorgeous world BioWare have created are all excellent, but at launch it's lumbered by bugs, technical hitches and odd or uninspired design decision. I want to like this game, but sometimes it doesn't make it easy.

    There’s no doubt that Anthem is beautiful, and its core of flying, shooting, looting, and upgrading your mech is fun. The campaign’s pacing is off, however, speeding through pivotal moments in the story and doling out filler content to keep players busy. Despite its cast of charismatic characters, many relationships and interactions feel forced and lifeless. Anthem’s biggest setback is how it too frequently turns fun into work.

    Anthem's disjointed story, boring loot, repetitive missions, and shallow endgame are all disappointing. At least it's pretty.

    Even where it is strongest, Anthem rarely stretches beyond the derivative. The combat, while well-designed, is little more than Gears of War with jetpacks, and narratively it veers between inconsequential and downright irritating. This anthem is, sadly, a tedious and conservative dirge that we’ve all heard before

    Don't think these super low ratings are fair or accurate so to compensate I'll give super high. Still an 8-9 no matter what. After the PatchDon't think these super low ratings are fair or accurate so to compensate I'll give super high. Still an 8-9 no matter what. After the Patch the game hasn't bugged out or crashed once for me. The world is stunning, combat is very responsive and the mix of matching random teams and Solo play is really well done and fun. I like playing Solo but the teams I matched up with were tons of fun also shows how important teamwork is in this game. Fighting tougher enemies I was Thank-full for Drop-Ins to help out even on my Solo runs. It's a very Cooperative game design. No communication on these random Team missions means you have to pay attention to get some solid combo's but that is my only gripe with those. The quests are fun, the lore is interesting and the graphics are incredible. Loot isn't a concern for me but yes, it isn't stellar. Combat is really interesting with the flight/hover ability giving you an edge on taking the environment into account. The game has tons of potential for growth and I am waiting to see where Bioware will take this game. Expand

    Athmen необычный проект для студии Bioware, первый опыт в разработке игры подобного жанра и на первый раз достаточно успешный.
    К плюсам игры
    Athmen необычный проект для студии Bioware, первый опыт в разработке игры подобного жанра и на первый раз достаточно успешный.
    К плюсам игры можно отнести красивый мир, интересный сюжет ( поинтереснее чем во всеми любимой Desteny 2 ), необычный геймплей, потрясная графика и так же необычный сеттинг, отличный лор игры, проработка мелких деталей и прочее .
    Из минусов можно заметить повторяющиеся миссии( ИГРА Б*&%ть только вышла , конечно будет однобразие ! ), и самое больное это оптимизация ...
    Итог. Все эти минусы будут исправлены т.к. структура игры подразумевает то , что игру будут поддерживать как минимум несколько лет. И даже по нынешним оценкам заметно , что положительные оценки догоняют отрицательные, да и к тому же половина отрицательных оценок не имеют под собой вес.
    Игра отличная, просто сейчас пошла тенденция занижать оценки всему , что только видно , если вы любите гринд, погружение в роль своего персонажа, то эта игра однозначно для вас , рекомендую .
    Ждем новые события, развитие контента , у игры есть все шансы , а так задуамйтесь, что было с desteny 2 в момент ее выхода ? почему ее так не критиковали ? Если объективно Anthem на несколько голов выше , все просто , сейчас все пытаются показать свой ум ... точнее его отсутствие .

    Im giving 1 out of 10 because 90 percent of this game is looks. and 10 percent gameplay. Rediculous loading screens. please for the sake ofIm giving 1 out of 10 because 90 percent of this game is looks. and 10 percent gameplay. Rediculous loading screens. please for the sake of the economy don't buy this game for 60 dollars. the ceos of ea are the MOST overpayed people of last year. why? because we keep feeding into their lies. bioware had a great vision but sadly, it got eaed! Ea has got to be the worst company as of now for gaming. I cannot believe they even still exist after this. gone are the days of good games. they give the minimum value product and that's it. we shouldn't stand for unfinished games. until we all boycott ea this will continue. if you enjoy the game good for you. I am not having fun at all. the loading literally is longer than the gameplay. what were they thinking? I could see maybe picking this up in 2020 for 10 bucks or maybe 20. mass effect andromeda is better than this! that being said remember what they showed at e3 compared to the crap we got? how is this even legal? I cannot believe the ceo of ea hasn't apologized for this absolute disgrace of a game. Angry Joe and his team made a beautiful review on this game you should check it out before you decide on wasting your money. might as well throw 60 bucks in the toilet! we as a community cant keep letting these companies do this and get away with it! Divison 2 will be way better than this. spend your money on that before this crap. if you like the art style and flying just download warframe its free and a much much better game than this. after reading this heed my warning. or dump 60 bucks in the trash. yes this game will get better in a year. but that's not fair to you on day one! try to tough it out until divison 2 drops. I promise you wont be disappointed. and don't forget angry joes reviews on this game. Expand
