    Anthem is a really good looking game and the flight mechanics are fantastic. The games droprates are terrible at the moment.

    The game has beautiful graphics, but the gameplay is so bland and repetitive, you complete a mission in one place of the map and then do the exact same thing in a different spot.

    Had high hopes for this game but came away disappointed. Looks great but has a number of technical issues, bad loot design, and simple endgame component.

    So far this has been a pretty fun game but I can't wait for more content. Depending on your play style you can be done with the campaign in about 12-15 hours.

    The game has similar elements as Destiny or Diablo. Game is visually stunning and has a lot of plans for future content.

    Beautiful game, plays great, huge open world... Only downside is the server instability. Plus it's a little too quick to level up the max

    Its another visual masterpiece and very reminiscent of mass effect andromeda combat. It would have been better if they applied a single player campaign and focused more on it like they did the Mass Effect series. There was so much potential for more.

    While it's a little rough around the edges, it's a beautiful game. There is a great story and I find it enjoyable. Depending on expectations, you might be slightly disappointed but overall it's a worthwhile game to play and they're updating it frequently to only make it better.

    Beautiful graphics but grinding is unbearable

    First of all stay away from the Legend of Dawn edition it's a ripoff. The unique weapon is no longer useful after a few hours of game play and you can buy better looking armor with the coins you earn through the in game merchant. This has to be one of the most stunning XBOX games I have ever played. But the amount of game play it takes to level up your character will become unbearable. Many of my friends that left Destiny 2 have returned due to the absolutely poor drops in Anthem. I played just a few days ago for 4 hours on Grand Master 1 and did not get anything I already had gotten a dozen times or more. Even on the higher Grand Master settings the rare drops are few and far between. Some posts say it may take 10-20 hours of game play to get an item you need. In short, if you love stunning graphics this is a must own. But if you hate grinding run away from this game!

    I honestly cant figure out why critiques hit this game so hard. The game is fun, and super beautiful. The writing is the best a video game could ask for. Get this game!

    Visually stunning game. The flight in the game is good as well. The only issue I have with it is that it is very repetitive and I don't see much else you could do once you have all masterwork/legendary gear. I own it, so I will continue to play it and see how it evolves

    Crashing and Loading galore!

    Let me start by saying that I went into this game with an open mind despite what reviewers were saying. I really really wanted to like this game. I've been playing it for over a week straight. It was cool to fly around an open world, land, shoot enemies, complete various objectives, etc. The story is kinda forgettable. The main hub/fort is vibrant but also kinda lacking at the same time. Comparing what was released to what was shown a few times at E3 is really disturbing. It looks and plays nothing like that. That "gameplay" trailer was a complete lie. The loading screen will be your new friend as its what you will see 60% of the time. This game has bugs.....LOTS OF THEM. Bugs ranging from the sound completely going out, to mission objectives that never appear causing an entire mission to have to be quit and redone, to constant crashes to the games title screen, crashes to Xbox home, and times when the game just completely freezes. This game in all honesty is a godforsaken mess. What the heck happened Bioware? Oh yeah, thats right, EA happened. Lets also talk about the loot system and drop rate. It is for the most part broken and just bad. Playing on Grandmaster 1 will still drop some common items laughably and 99% of what you get ranges from Uncommon to Epic. Very rarely and I mean VERY VERY rarely you may get a Masterwork item (Better than Epics). Which comes to the reason I am here reviewing this game and ceasing any more play time with this horrendous junk. Tonight, after pouring hours and hours playing and doing missions and strongholds......Finally, a LEGENDARY dropped. MY FIRST ONE IN ABOUT 60-70 hours. These things never ever drop, I mean never. The planets must have been aligned for me to actually get one. I finished up Freeplay, which is where I got it, quit the expedition. While its loading guess what happens, CRASH TO XBOX HOME. Everything I had just done and received.....GONE. The game doesn't save until the end of a mission. In a buggy disgusting mess like this, the developers put the save at the very end!? I was in complete shock and could not believe it. I also think the game is partly rigged to do that when you get good drops so you have to grind this garbage forever with no reward. Do yourselves a favor people, avoid this game and stay very far. Don't even accept it as a gift and don't even take it for free. We should be getting paid by Bioware and EA for play testing and putting up with this no-where-near-finished shell of a "game". Instead we paid top dollar for a buggy mess. I'ven't bought EA games in a long time and gave this a chance. Done with EA and Bioware, never spending a dime on their half finished games again.
