    This game got some tough reviews when it was first released. The developers must have fixed most of the bugs because it is a very enjoyable game. It is like a mix of Destiny, Titanfall and No Man’s Sky. This is good and bad. All are good games and mixing elements of all can be a little confusing. It takes some time to learn what your focus should be in the game. The open world I feel will continue to grow and this very well could become a classic like Destiny. Destiny got some negative reviews when it released and now Destiny 2 is one of the top games. The graphics are some of the best I’ve seen on my Xbox X. The worlds are so realistic is is a pleasure to just explore. Being able to jump and fly in your suits is way cool. I got the Legion of Dawn edition on sale for $32. If it goes on sale at this price, it is a bargain to add to your game library.

    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!

    People really need to manage their expectations on live games these days, especially brand new franchises. Otherwise, it just turns into argumentative fanboy-style arguments over which game is better. This is a nice Bioware game with a good backstory, and I'm taking my time on it. Yes, I really enjoy Destiny 1 and 2. I also really enjoyed The Division and Diablo 3. I did not like Fallout 76, but that was a huge cluster which this doesn't compare to. The loading screens do suck, but Division has them. Destiny has them. Get an SSD to mitigate this. It did wonders for me in Division.

    It feels like a Diablo shooter with flying mechanics. It does make sense that a futuristic space suit should fly and not just double jump like so many games. The character dialogue is so KOTOR and ME. Kinda weird, but makes you learn about the world you are playing in. I'm not sure I'll have a real opinion until I get to end game where drops matter more. I think this game will be dependent on how that looks for longevity. You definitely feel more powerful as you level.

    i know this game has been getting a lot of hate lately but its really a gem that needs u to see it for what it is and how great it can become. each mech that u get plays totally different from each other and and air to ground combat is the best ive ever seen in a game like this the content is not there just yet but its comeing .... if u gave destiny and the division a chance why not give this one a shot at least the grind is not as bad as the other two

    Ok so there are a few things that could be tweaked or improved but they are constantly updating and exciting content on the way..I have played for about 32 hours. I could go on and on and on...but all I can say if you doubt it try it for 10 hrs with EA access you might be amazed...sure story is.not as deep as Bioware usually is but they already told you it would not be months ago.. lol..but at least there is a story.

    If you love Destiny, this is Destiny + Iron Man combined. The best part is flying around and the graphics are awesome. The main story is short. They need more content which they will surely add. The current end game is a definite Grind. 4 Classes are cool and its nice you can use all your weapons/perks in between each Class. No need for extra grind of class specific stuff.

    This much anticipated game is truly fun to play. The flight mechanics, gun play, enemies/bosses all feel good. There have been quite a few bugs, but BioWare is listening to the community, responding (being as transparent as possible), and squashing the bugs in a timely fashion. Good game IMO, and a rather large area to play with lots to do and find. Two thumbs up.

    I easily got burned out with Destiny and The Division, but Anthem brings the grinding type games to a whole new level...in a very good way. I dont get tired of exploring the massive environment. The enemies can be challenging. The recent update, better loot has dropped. Of course, the game needs some more updating, but in its current form, it's a fun game!

    I know this game is getting some negative reviews but I am loving it! The gameplay is great and just feels fun to play. The story is a little lacking for a Bioware game but for some reason it doesn't really bother me. I could care less about making connections with NPCs and instead just want to get out and fly my javelin.

    Despite everything you may have heard about loot and content, the mechanical guts of Anthem are incredibly solid. The meaningful content does run out and into a grind a little quickly, but this is meant to be a living game. As long as it keeps growing this game is going to be fun for a long time to come.

    This game definitely does not feel like a complete game. Nowadays- seems to be a growing trend. I will say most reviews are a little too harsh. Game play pretty solid. Story a little lacking compared to most bioware titles. I would wait for a cheaper price. Worth a rent or purchase at half the cost.

    I'll be honest it's fun, but very short lived. I'd hope they would have put more in the game considering it was suppose to be the most epic release on the console per E3. The campaign is very quick, and the characters are not gripping like you get in other single player driven games.

    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

    I like this game. It's not perfect but it is a good time. It's like being ironman with guns. The flying feels great! I'm sure they will update it in the future and make it even better. I would buy it again after spending time with it. Don't expect too much, just enjoy the game.

    The Legend of Dawn is definitely the better choice than the base game itself. Without the special armor and weapon, you will take a long time to have decent equipment. The Legion of Dawn bonus will last till almost end of the game.

    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.

    If you like Destiny you like this game it's fun for a while might have been better if they added stuff they said they were going to but I really doubt we'll ever see the rest of the game

    I've enjoyed this game so far the graphics are high quality and the gameplay is fun. The recent price drop made this game a bit more appealing and seemed worth taking a risk on.
