    The beta had more glitches than the game of today. I can play for hours now and not experience game play issues. I've never played a game that didn't need patches. Cons first: It doesn't have "Borderlands type" dialog (my #1 co-op shooter). A lot of people aren't mic'd up. I completed 100% of the missions without vocal communication from other team members, but the game feels less like a "team effort". Also, with more team coordination the game would be more "tactical", and progression in the game would move at a faster pace. Pros: You have to play the game on "hard mode" to give weight to flying around and battling foes. That's what make this game really really fun. The weapons in the game feel amazing, and I don't believe one gun does it all. I'm using all the weapons, and the special abilities are awesome to use. The micro-transactions are a joke, and don't impact my game- play since you can make your suit unique by using thousands of color combos. Selling dropped guns and completing missions can produce coins that give you the ability to purchase items in the micro-transaction market. If you read reviews, they talk about the fact that once the glitches get resolved the game will be much better. At that time the game would be able to get to 4 stars but never 5.

    Not a full game

    I am enjoying the Anthem game play and the mechanic of the it so far, the only issue I have is this is like a beta version. They do not have the full content release and they are releasing it piece by piece each month. So if you have completed the main mission, then you are pretty much stuck with repeatedly doing the same missions, legendary contracts and stronghold missions to get better gear. Also the legendary equipment drop rate is horrible, I have been playing for days doing strongholds mission and legendary missions and have not gotten a piece of legendary equipment. Masterwork items are pretty rare too even on higher level difficulty. I would say get this game on a sale price because is definitely not worth paying the full price or paying extra for the Legion of Dawn edition.

    I want to love this game. The environments are breathtaking. The feeling of flight in your javelin is amazing. I even enjoy the (limited) missions and story content I have been able to play/view. Why has this been limited? Well, the game came jam packed with an assortment of bugs that should never be present in a final product. Audio cutting out or going haywire, falling through the floor during cutscenes and missing everything that is happening with no way to replay the mission, and crashes that send you to the home screen during gameplay to list a few. It is really disheartening because I think they would have had something really special if given enough time to fully polish the game. I hope they are able to turn it around over time.

    This is a great game and enjoyable to play. I have always dreamed of being iron Man and finally am able to do so. However, this game had major issues with crashing or bugged strongholds. Using an Xbox one x, I will load into free play, normally 60 seconds of loading, the game will crash and reset. Also, the loading screens, I think you sit on loading screens more than actually playing the game. Each time you do anything, there is a loading screen. I would recommend it because it is beautiful looking game, but you have to be patient.

    Not the same Bioware I grew up with. From KOTOR to Mass Effect (Even Andromeda), I was always a Bioware fan, but since then, their games have become lax and wanting. Maybe in a few months, or years, this game will be awesome, but there are no excuse for how long it took them to develop it that it isn't perfect now. Especially with all the other Looter Shooters out there and they should know what works and what doesn't, and unfortunately, this doesn't.

    I was really hoping that this game was going to be great, but unfortunately I was somewhat wrong. The graphics and flying are great, but the rest of the game is not very engaging. It seems like a game that came out about five or six years ago. I'd try this game first before fully purchasing it.

    Great foundation for success. Gameplay is fun, but long loading time, bugs, and loot system makes the game feel like something is missing. EA and BioWare are working tirelessly to update the game, but until then, this game didn’t meet the expectations of most people.

    The combat and movement mechanics are excellent, but the story and interactions in the world suffer in this open-world always-online shooter. If you are a fan of BioWare's previous games, this one might be a bit of a disappointment. Read up before purchasing.

    This game is pretty cool but with any new game has its bugs/glitches. Too many to mention but the developers have been releasing patches to fix the game. I wish more developers would take this kind of initiative and listen to feedback from their communities.

    Some of the game play mechanics

    The combat seems sort of bland compared to more diverse weaponry like Warframe. The exploratation, such as jetpacking, that made the game unique is restricted due to the overheating of the system although making it accurate. This sort of ruins the experience.

    I initially played through the entire campaign. The campaign was interesting. Once you finish, though, there are things to do, but I lost interest. I'm hoping there will be some new additions soon, or this may be forgotten, like other games.

    It’s a fun game, if you don’t mind dealing with constant bugs that supposedly get updated almost daily, has long loading screens (which are supposedly fixed almost daily), and repetitive everything. There’s fun to be had, just be prepared to wait for it.

    Pros: Graphics, 4 player multiplayer, storyline, handling the different javelins Cons: EA servers, have been booted from gameplay multiple times or servers have been just down, also loading times are excessively long when going into the open world

    For my initial review, I have to say, it's not bad. Gameplay is a bit repetitive and the load time is ridiculous. It is a good change of pace from games I have been playing. Hoping that new contents will improve the game.

    The control is good, the environment looks great and The ability to color your suit is really nice. However there are a lot of little things that need to be fixed. The developers seemed to have been rushed.

    Now after hearing about the game coming out a year ago I was so excited but once you get a couple hours play under your belt the game didn’t have much to it and begin to get boring and repetitive!

    Was super hyped about this game, now I'm super bored. Lack of content makes it a very repetitive game. Also not being able to set a way point to locations or public events is extremely frustrating

    This game handles and controls well. It's very gratifying to pilot your javelin. The lore is deep, but it doesn't do a great job of highlighting it all the time. The end game is so-so.

    The game has promise, but EA hasn't shown it. Maybe wait to see what their plans are, because the game is pretty shallow. They could correct it, but that might take 1/2 a year or more.

    Anthem has a lot of highs and a lot of lows. Level design and structure could use a lot of work as it becomes extremely repetitive. The graphics and gameplay and story NPCs are great!
